Will be cool to compare data logs for Stratified vs Freektune after you're all set up. I'm doing a dyno tune with Freektune to get dialed in in the next week or two.

My AP is very comfortable in that location, i dont like the idea of sticking things to my dash so i went with windshield mount, i love it so far. I would be interested in comparing data as well. Im very happy with Stratified's customer service. They have their own F23t in an MK6 development car, so they can really dial it in and alter the tune for best drivability as well as power.

Nice - Freektune also recently just installed the F23T in their in-house MK6 . It's great having some actual independent competition in this space for our cars!

I agree and competition will give the MK6 the best tunes possible. Are you running WMI?

Oil leak was actually a missing bolt on the valve cover. No idea how it went missing, but unrelated to the turbo install. The coolant leak was a poorly crushed washer on the supply line - the one you swap while both turbos are out of the car. Make sure you get the orientation right on that one, and torque it properly! Otherwise, you're going to have to remove the turbo AGAIN

Ok so here is a picture of my F23t (color) and the picture of the K04 orientation (black and whit). One of my plugs is on the wrong side...do i still need to make it the same as a standard K04?

Yes - you need to swap it. Install is exactly the same as the DIY

I can't tell from the pic how you mounted the AP to the windshield - but I discovered the mount fits perfectly on a Garmin GPS suction cup (same size ball!). This lets it sit further from the windshield than the sticky mount, so you can orient it without hitting the windshield

Ooh - also, the plug on the F23T had a washer on it -- remove that washer when you swap the position to the lower port! Otherwise the plug will sit out too at and prevent the line from seating fully.

Took me an entire weekend to find that coolant leak.

No sweat - feel free to msg me if you have any questions. Just did this a few weeks ago so it's all fresh . Don't miss my other reply (2 or 3 up) about that washer!

Update.....finally got the F23t installed yesterday, topped off coolant and added new oil and filter...recirculated the oil and coolant without the coils plugged in. Then ran the car for about 20 mins to burp it a bit, was running very smooth, no leaks or weird noises. I turned the car off, went inside to update my AP for the F23t baseline map from Stratified, installed in Black Widow.
I started her up and it was misfiring really bad....i let it run a bit so the AP could collect the codes and hoping the computer would work things out......it continued to stutter and stammer bad. I turned her off, flashed it back to the previous map (cobb ots stage 2 93 oct) it continued to do much of the same.

At first i thought it was the F23t map, then i realized that it continued to have the same symptoms and codes read....






Cleared them and started the engine again and they came back and now there is an added ticking sound and the engine dies.

I'm thinking that my cam tensioner may have gone and hoping that i don't have bent valves.
