      There's a little NVH after install but it's minimal compared to the red HPA. If you are concerned about NVH it's tough to beat.

      DRLs are a mandated safety feature in the US. You'll get them in some fashion or another.

      Dropped about 1-2 MPG after the install. I plan on doing OE fluid changes every 30K like the schedule recommends but adding the filter in as well. The dealer has never said anything about it but the...

      They completely remove the subframe because their kit includes the upper and lower dog bone mount. There's no way to get at the upper mount without removing the subframe. Anytime you move the...

      The only time I disable ESC on road is when I want to goof off in the winter or when I want to throttle out of a corner (or roundabout) and want the rear tires to spin vs ESC kicking in. In all other...

      Out the of three things you listed only one is a change from the MK6 to 7 and that's the hand brake. How that plays in to any driving scenario that's not on gravel or tight WRC style tracks I have no...

      From what I've read the only real difference is the Haldax unit being a part of the rear axle and EDS. I'd be more concerned with the increase in power. Stock the MK7 pulls on a stage 1 MK6 and the...

      I'm going to guess it has more to do with engine RPM over the given time period over anything like mileage, boost, WOT or cruise. Simply put, the more the cam lob turns the more it's going to wear. ...

      That silver clip is a spring clip and can be removed with a needle nose. It's also reusable but like others said for a follower replacement the only line you need to remove is the hard line. You can...

      What features is that? ECO mode? I don't see that coming in to play often as you think. How long do you maintain the exact speed for during a typical drive? From my testing I lost about 1mpg going to...

      It was a rhetorical question. I know, as does everyone else, that you cannot resell a tune and it furthers my point. Buying a piece of dedicated hardware that costs more up front will end up costing...

      Not Golf R related but interesting. They've taken the same surge avoidance philosophy they applied to the R and applied it to their TSI K04 kits in the latest update. The new curve shows a dip in...

      Cheaper is cheaper assuming both their offering and HPA's perform equally. One thing to keep in mind is you can take off and sell your HPA controller and recoup money. Can you do that with a flash?...

      You do realize that HS Tuning is piecing their kit together using a TTRS pressure plate and a TDI clutch disk, right? So in reality there's more piecing together going on with them vs someone like...

      Haldex oil is changed every 3yrs/30,000. Besides inspections (and there's a lot at 40,80,120, etc) the 4yr/40,000 service is oil change and dust/pollen filter change.

    19. Anyone know the gear ratios for the manual and DSG R?

      One of the big letdowns imo of the mk6 manual is the gear ratios. I'm hoping for taller gearing this time around. Anyone seen stats on this?

      Any chance you could post the graph? I'd love to see the curve.



      That's crank. The US is pretty much the only place where dyno readings are wheel.
