Obvious troll and an idiot. What an extraordinary combination. You might want to look at what else is included or maybe reading just isn't your strong suit

With that being said, I do like what I'm able to do with Eurodyne. But, if this option existed a year ago I would 2000% have went the Cobb route.
Nope, Chris sucks for sure...probably needs a proper ass kicking...but that's beside the point of being able to have all of the tuning ability. I don't care. Andy takes care of all that for me, I just flash his files and happily drive my car

There is so much more to life than peak number gains. It's too bad people only focus on that.

Not sure if troll.

I want to see more dynos on Mkvi before I rush out an buy something. Proof is in the numbers for VWs. I'm talking about on many cars not just one.

Too new for me. Looks neat though.

To new? Do you know how long cobb has had the AP? Lol, just because they are adding a vw to their line up has nothing to do with their ability to tune a car....yes, even our almighty GTIs

I understand its a neat tool with lots of cool features. I would like a little more hp gain though.
I'm not a troll nor an idiot. You will also not see me call somebody out for having an opinion even if I don't agree with it.
Anyhow back on topic, I watched the video from Cobb and it appears a breeze to use and a def plus it needs no computer with internet connection

GroceriesVR6 have a great weekend sir...!!!

Or, you can spend $650 on APRs single tune without all the fancy features (including labor) and get much more power. For the vast majority of customers who don't care about logging or tune switching this is a better option.

Even better, spend $550 for Revo's tune.

Cobb has it's place. But let's not pretend you, *****2.0t and caulkin are in the majority.

On a related note, it's funny to hear all these comments about Eurodyne coming out of the cracks. Having not hung out in the BT thread this is the first time heard of it.

Sincerely, XGC75

I do want to clarify, I don't have any doubt that COBB itself will make available everything that is needed. I am more worried about their current Pro tuners and E-tuner network. I'm sure that They would hate me to enter their network with prior knowledge of MED logic and tuning experience on the platform and offer essentially free (by donation of no set amount) tuning to anyone who wanted to. I'm sure they wouldn't like that a whole lot. I'm more than willing to do it to, o wait i already do that for eurodyne..... I'm here for advancement of the community and strongly believe that we have great platforms here but we lack fueling here guys. Literally.

Can any of you guys claiming low gains show me a real life customer dyno of any major tuning company's (APR, Revo, etc) Stage 1, 1+, and 2 tunes...AT THE WHEELS? The numbers from Cobb are at the wheels.

Keep in mind you're getting stages 1, 1+, & 2 PLUS all the features the AP brings for $650.

QFTW.. seriously, what he said and i mentioned this few pages back.

COBB's numbers are AT THE WHEELS!. Other tune's have their dyno graphs on virtual dyno or at the crank.

If you look at users dyno result pages; of folks running said tunes and supporting mods; will be right close to what COBB is throwing down.
