      TTRS intercooler thoughts?

      Looking to upgrade the intercooler. I'm planning on doing a Stage I tune, as some may know. I track the car, and would like to address heat soak issues. I realize the power/torque won't be...

      Miscommunication, maybe. The 034 engineer explicitly said you could change boost via VAG-COM. Changing type of tune (I, II, II+) does require a reflash. Octane settings - not sure.

      I spoke to them at Fastivus. They say they you can do boost switching via scan tool. These are the things they hyped up the most:

      - Same HP/torques at lower boost; flatter torque curve than...

      Aah, the 034 people finally come out of the woodwork!

      I've already spoken to the 034 lead programmer. I was impressed that they talked to me like a fellow geek, explaining all the technical...

      Thanx for the feedback. NLS isn't really an issue for me since I can shift extremely quickly. The limiting factor is the gearbox (that stupid 3rd gear synchro has failed on every Audi I've owned). ...

      034 has that too.


      From a technical standpoint, it seems to be a wash. However, there's not much experience with the 034 tune, despite it's advertised advantages. A quick search of the TTRS FB...

      034 or UM ECU tune for TT-RS?

      The warranty's almost over, and it's time for an ECU tune. I'm looking for a Stage I to start with. Maybe upgrade the intercooler later, primarily for heat soak rather than power. I'm not...

      Couple more question. I think I've figured out the necessary install parts:
      Front - pinch bolt/nut, control arm bolt/nut, upper mount bolts, axle bolt
      Rear - A-arm bolt/nut, lower strut bolt/nut
      ...

      CarNut84GTi, you answered my main concern.
      I'm going with the Koni yellows. The fronts are adjustable in-place, and the rears are easy to drop for adjustment.

      Another option are the Racingline dampers themselves. The kit comes with the VWR springs and their dampers, already fitted, for $699. Per the marketing:

      - Tri-valve technology
      - 55mm damper
      -...
    11. Which dampers for VWR/DG springs? (yes, I've RTFA)

      I've narrowed my options, but wanted some final advice.

      2012 4dr GTI DSG
      H&R rear sway
      45mm offset 18" wheels
      Michelin PSS (tire height stock)
      ~70K miles

      Dampers are shot. The GTI is my...

      Sorry so late to the thread.

      I'm gonna buck the trend a bit. It sounds like you're an experienced driver (12/yr!). I would recommend R-comps on a set of dedicated track wheels. Your car is...

      Yes, the water pump itself is covered under the power train warranty. I'm not so sure about any tubing and fittings. I'll take the car to the dealer.

      Interlagos will clear the fronts. You may need a spacer. With 275's I needed an 8mm spacer.
      America's Tire was able to scrounge them up for me.
