Ok, there was some confusion there then. I was thinking 19 for the 7R ma bye but I haven't looked. VW doesn't seem to have a great resale value

Where are you guys getting these crazy resale prices from? Salvage yards? Auction?

Clean MK7s are still north of 20. MK7R's are well above 30, even for used ones (and there aren't many used ones available). Hell, even some '14 fully loaded MK6's are still fetching 17-18k. VW's have insanely good resale value.

For a MK7R, yes. I have not seen any under 30k. They haven't even been coming off lease yet. It's a $45,000 car new, VW don't lose even close to that much resale value that quickly. It's not a BMW/Mercedes.

That's why so many people are still buying new GTI's/R's...because they want such a premium for the used ones youre just better off buying a new one.

There are used mk7 r's for 25k or so. North of 70,000 miles. I watched one sell from Copart (flood car- with no warning lights, ran and drove with 31k miles) for 16k.

Here is a sample from a log I did on my compound turbo setup to check for fueling issues, I think they look ok but could anyone with experience tell me their opinion. Boost was 25 psi on 92 octane fuel + water meth injection.

When coupled with the solid SuperPro 26mm rear sway bar I have on it now and the extra 5" of wheelbase that you get with the CC, you can really start to control the rotation of the rear of the car.

The only downside right now is that I can't do any burnouts unless its slick outside due to all the traction (I really need to get around to slapping a big turbo on it or going with my dumbass 2.5L swap idea). I also wish someone would finally step up and get a proper rear diff made for Gen 4 Haldex! I know I've seen the threads on getting them made, but so far no one has actually come through.
Mfactofy has an lsd for the haldex unit, here's the link: http://store.teammfactory.com/a3-tt-...ical-lsd-rear/

Fueling looks good from a quick glance. You're going to need to modify requested boost (not sure what tune you're using, if Eurodyne increase Target Filling) as you're maxing the MAP but the request isn't maxed.

The real question is what does timing look like? Actual advance and correction. And for the logs to be of much value you're going to need far more data points and a one gear log from 2k to the limiter.

Thanks for the advice, right now I am running Giac K04 file and letting the ecu control everything like usual since 90% of the time it performs like K04, on top of that I am just adding fuel and limiting total boost with the big turbo wastegate. If this doesn't work I will have to go Eurodyne.
