I've had Malone stage 2 with downpipe, and I now currently have Malone stage 1.5. When I was stage 2, I was told they logged 315 tq and 165whp. They did not give me and figures with stage 1.5, except ballpark 153whp and 293tq. I drive a manual.

Why did you downgrade to stage 1.5?

Those figures are very nice. And yes why the downgrade? Also, they have a custom tune option too right?

Added crank HP and TQ numbers since those were easily accessible from the tuners' sites.

Without independent dynoing, take the numbers with a grain of salt.

Can you add whether it requires DPF or not as well as whether it requires DSG tune.

Disclaimer: I'm an APR dealer

You would think that the Malone tune with 333 lb-ft would would feel much faster than the APR with 297 lb-ft, but the APR tune felt faster with the butt dyno. The two cars driven were a 6spd Sport Wagon with APR and DSG Golf with Malone Stage 2. Not Apples to apples, but still...

I've heard the same thing from several people before.

That's the first I've ever heard of anyone claiming APR was better than Malone in any way.

Bird went from APR Stage I to Malone Stage II, with his DPF still intact, and claims it is far superior.

This is why I haven't gotten a tune yet; I can't stand the lack of true comparison data on them

Read this for more insight on my driving around with the APR stage 1 sportwagen.

I downgraded because the smell was really bad. Embarrassing when around other people or my girlfriends parents -_- another reason is if I decide to trade in, life would be easier as it is now road legal with the dpf intact.
