Driving in stock ecu. Lawd, it was so slow. Initial impressions of dsg tune, so far very positive.
Very cool. I have heard good things about Mobil one.

Their rates are reasonable and seem to do good work. Jason knows a lot about VWs and custom tuning, really knowledgable guy.

Yeah one day down the road I think I'm going to run a standalone on the mk2 so I will most likely go here to get that all set up.

Small updates:

DSG Tune - It's been awesome so far. Gone are the small WTF moments of DSG, it's no longer hanging out in the lower RPMs, racing to 6th gear. When slowing down, transmission downshifts, so you're always in a good gear to get moving again if you need to. DSG farts seem a bit louder too.

034 Street Density Engine/Transmission Mount - I've had these mounts laying around for a while, been busy lately with family stuff. Car went to Renner's on Saturday morning and he installed the mounts for me. There was no added NVH, in fact, there seems to be less. Between the 034 Billet insert, APR Pendulum and these mounts, good combo for DD. Shifts feel like butter and power transfer feels direct. The engine/trans mount really buttoned everything up. Majority of the NVH came from the insert and pendulum.

On way back from Renner's house, my wife was following me and even commented on my tails, saying I need to get LED tails

Thanks, just need to find my vagcom cable to code out the error. But having hard time remembering where I packed it and the movers come to pick up and store our stuff tomorrow

Hopefully it dries up one day so I can take it for a wash. It sucked changing the tails with all the salt.
