      Have you ever owned an AWD car with a center dif and LSD's front and/or rear? If you had you wouldn't be saying that. I've owned Mitsu's and Subaru's in the past and there's no doubt that those AWD...

      HPA used to be blue but I believe they changed that a while back. If it is an HPA they etch a serial number on them though. It's on one of the sides of the housing. Doesn't look like you can see it...

      Do you have a VCDS cable? If so I'd love to see MAF, timing, timing retard per cyl, intake air temp, boost specified and boost actual from about 2000 - redline at WOT.

      I'm not sure you can get to the lower bolt with it on without using a wobble adapter. Even then I'm not sure there's enough space for the wobble. I've always taken that off but left the sensor on.

      Hard to say without knowing what timing is being called for on each tune. They could have simply left the timing stuff alone, which is likely given they only tap in to two sensors. A quick VCDS log...

      I always joke that I could feel the difference pulling out of my parking lot after install but I could. I spent a lot of time in rear bias AWD cars prior to the R. Maybe knowing how a more rear drive...

      I've never been in a situation on the street where having ESC on caused any unwanted interruption. I do however turn off traction control sometimes. A Haldex controller on the other hand is one of my...

      Other than that dip from 3500 to 4200 it looks pretty good. I wonder if that's timing pull.

      The glove box area is still going to be the easiest place to get switched, constant and ground. Other than swapping out a couple of older parts for the new box it should be the same in respects as...

      As far as I know defeating ESC has no effect on Haldex mapping.

      While true that there's no mechanical dif in play the coupling itself does need consistency to behave correct and live a long serviceable life. Straight from Borg

      You have to keep in mind that dyno graphs are usually smoothed out as much as possible to give you that nice flat line. I'd say ask for a plot with 0 smoothing but even those show peaks and valleys...

      I'm mostly in the same camp.

      1st, I want to see how the new engine lasts being tuned. It's already having issues with turbos blowing at stock boost levels. I read there's a new rev turbo out to...

      I understand you didn't have to deal with a slipping clutch that much but to be fair there's 100's (if not more) on this forum alone that have. Even at 1+ I was slipping in 3rd and above when it was...

      It reds right at 60 stock. Tunes typically give you another couple hundred rpm of headroom as well. The 2015 DSG S3 will have the same setup is the '15 DSG R.

      DSG hits 60 in second. It also has a taller 6th. Both are common complaints from MK6 R manual owners. I was never really a fan of the manual feel on the R to begin with (sloppy even for a cable...

      So I can see how the incredibly anal would say they make a mess in the summer but it uses a lot of fluid? They spray once for about half a second out of every 5 times you spray the windshield while...
