      Your friend's belief is part of the reason there are very few tuning options for 2.5L.

      Good luck.

      We have a few Golf R cars outside the USA. Loba turbo, GT30 turbo, Stock K04 and some DSG too.

      The difficulty we've had is proper local support. We are looking into Aus market.

    7. A3 / S3 Gear Ratio - gearing / steering ratios

      S3 box is for surr shorter than A3.
      a3 matches TDI
      s3 matches gti.

      From older boxes: we got 3 gear sets: 4cyl, vr6, tdi
      (short to long)

      That seems to be similar on Mk6 vw cars.

      I wish...

      No 'magic' in Sam's tune.
      We simply took advantage of all the parts he bolted on.

      We have seen 380-400ftlbs at the wheels on K04 cars.

      Peak torque with the Loba will be similar.
      This is close to your rated 480.

      Small turbo choice helps spool.
