Lol, I'd be one to bite but I'm still a few years out from pulling the trigger on a turbo kit. Ever dyno that thing?

I may be wrong but I don't think launch control does anything for us DSG guys other than disengage the clutch so we can rev as if we were depressing the clutchina manual. Does it also modify dif lock or TC settings or something? I feel like if you have the tires for it you would be better off not using launch control so you can actually build boost off the line rather than just RPM.

Perhaps I have a fundamental misunderstanding of the system though...

He has a manual.

But regardless of trans it should still do fuel/timing magic to make boost, and then if you have a DSG I'm assuming some variation of slipping the clutch(es) to launch.

In his build thread I thought he mentioned switching to DSG. If I go in manual/sport and disable TC I can free rev to 4K (set in maestro) but I don't build boost. If I leave tc on though I'm able to brake boost of course I don't rev as high...

aside from different piping routing.

Long story short, I turned the meth off, bypassed the failsafe so I can still drive it, and edited the tune to pull like 10 degrees of timing out up top compared to my regular file....

Holy fuck is it slow now. End Story.

I believe it the timing and boost make a huge difference.

Im still manual.

What you are referring to is just like a stationary rev limiter. If the tune specifically accounts for it, it can build boost and what not

Hmm, so other than enabling launch control via the checkbox in maestro I wonder what I need to do so that it lets me build boost.

Thanks for the info I'll be doing some reading once I get my car back on the road

Nick knows how exactly, you gotta pull timing and add fuel I think based on the rpm, load and tps

Update on my end:

Mkv - Rear main finally let go fully so luckily I have been off this week which allowed me to replace that. Used a I'Abed one I bought for my MK6 and bought another for the MK6. Also fought with the pilot bearing forever, and i was not about to bring the crank to a machine shop lol, a die grinder to cut slots in it and was able to pull it out. second fun surprise was the cracked flywheel. Back up and running now.

Stuff thats changed for the mkv:
-Installed MK6 canbus
-Installed MK6 RNS315 - Nav and bluetooth setup and good waiting on the fakra cable for the sat radio hope to have that today
-Installed MK6 GTI Steering Wheel
-Installed I'Abed rear main
-Installed Newer flywheel
-Eurojet catch can using oem oil separator in progress, just need some more 10AN hose
-New plugs
-Bunch of other repairs
Future:
-Mk5 white cluster, have it need to get it and keys programmed
-Also working on acquiring awd parts for it.







Now for MK6 since this is the mk6 thread:
For those who dont know already I shredded my transmission about 4 months ago. If you follow Iroz on Insta i assume it will look similar to what they just did. So pulled the trans out, clutches are good and preping for a new one currently.

DO NOT believe anyone that tells you that you need aftermarket clutch packs to hold power on a DSG oem works just fine and to the point gear shred first.

Also here is a pic of the massive 6262 turbo kit, and damn is it close to everything.
