I've been getting this code intermittently as well, and my manifold was already replaced once under warranty. It sounds like one of the common failure modes is just the flap position sensor. My...

Materials choice makes another difference beyond just galvanic corrosion.

I agree that the primary purpose of the subframe collars is to fill the voids to provide a tighter coupling between the...

I went with the Tyrol kit this year partly because they were the original developers of the solution, partly because of the materials choice, and partly because they made it the easiest to include...

Have you logged timing correction? Maybe pulling a tiny bit of timing?

Nothing preventing you from doing that in the interim. Once you get the second revision back, flash it and see how it goes. Word has it they are pretty jammed up on revisions.

At speeds like that, don't undersell the aero side of things. I think I recall the Mk7 having a good bit lower Cd than Mk6, something like 10% better aero. Above 80 mph this is a very significant...

How many miles on the car?

Thoughts are MAP sensor(s) went bad, N75 valve itself shat the bed, ECU itself (unlikely if not tuned/never been opened), bad wiring/connection to said items, one or...

The P2015 code popped up for me recently like the day after going Stage 2. It was also a hidden code before that at times, but it is now triggering the CEL.

The problem with this code is that it...

To echo the others I think it's totally a product positioning decision. Can't have a lowly GTI competing with a Golf R or an Audi S3 for an appreciably lower price point.

That still holds true...

Definitely. This upgrade was probably second only to initially going Stage 1 in terms of the transformative effect on my car.

Another data point here. Took the plunge and installed the BFI stage 1 mount kit today. The biggest takeaway for me is that I should have done this over 60,000 miles ago.

Have you replaced your PCV? Honestly some of that sounds like a failed PCV valve. My car felt very similar to how you describe when my rear main seal failed due to failed PCV.

My theory on that...

Did you check/replace your PCV (N80)? Failed PCV could cause boost oscillations, but honestly it is probably the tune.

Ya $600 labor is very good. My bill for RMS, PCV, DMF, and labor was a shade under $2k at an indie shop. DMF alone is over $500.

The 93 octane tune may give higher peak torque a little later in the RPM band, which makes it "feel laggier." Or, if they used a little more boost in the 93 octane tune, it should feel like it takes...

Also PCV valve (N80 I think) going bad can cause some driveability weirdness like that too.

E30 is only like 94-95 octane, you'd need a bunch more ethanol to get to 100 for sure.

I like to run E30-E35 even on my 93 octane tune, the car just feels much better and more consistently strong....

That might get covered under your warranty too if you play your cards right. Hope it works out well!
