Goodspeed does great work and are a quality shop.

If you are interested in a tune done here in the Valley, for our heat and using our poor fuel, consider Evoms. I had an APR tune on my GTI and had...

I had a Forge on my GTI. Intake temps were better than stock, but not as good as the Neuspeed is on the R. As to lag, I'm nor really sure. So, if it does, its not much. I do believe the K04 in the R...

Yes, see my sig line. Pay them a visit and see some of the work they do and decide for yourself. Personally I like the fact that the tuner is only 30 minutes away. Others perfer the comfort of...

If you want something out of the mainstream I'd suggest Evoms. Not only out of the mainstream but you're getting a tune developed here, for our temperatures and crappy gas.

Evoms tunes do not require HPFP. But for you it would require a trip to Phoenix as theirs is a bench flash. Or, you could remove your ECU and ship to them.

I too had an APR Stage 2 GTI and my new Golf R's performance was underwhelming.

Yup, I knew that, and they still speak highly of you guys.

I wouldn't be surprised if I'm not giving up a bit of power, but I'm quite happy with the results. Conditions here are pretty bad for...

The downpipe will add power, the cat back will add sound. Of course if you choose to skip a cat and resonator in the DP, then it will be louder as well.

I just traded a 2011 GTI Stage 2 for a new Golf R. Got them to match PenFed's 1.74% rate. I could have paid for the car, but if I can't make more than 1.74% on my money I should just keep it under my...

Please share your first hand experience with the C2 Tune. Did you find it lacking in power, or was it the way the power was delivered.

It was a joke Jack. They won't steer you wrong, and yes, if you've got the cash, no note required.

Not at all. Just trying to encourage the youngster to trust a very competent shop. They've built some excellent high performance Euro cars, have a great reputation, and won't steer him wrong.

Same experience with my first trip to the dealer. Be patient, it will leak again, and it will be a failing water pump.
