      Funny how launch control and NLS were gimmicks when Matt bought it to med9.
      Now others are using it to make people think the sun shines out of their 4$$.

      I would love to wait for 630cc, instead of getting the 440cc tune...but not sure if its operational yet.... Any release date? :\?

      A lot of these guys are DBC AEGs Q. So, our method isn't directly applicable. Oh, and remind me where you got the idea to do that again?

      Is it honestly that simple to change those things and we can run the 1.8t ecu's on our aeg 8vt's?

      Yeah it's pretty easy on the drive by wire cars. Some of us are stuck with an older DBC setup though. Need good news!

      wow i was not aware of this, seems like alot better option for getting higher hp outta my aeg. Never really understood how quintin could get the numbers he did but i guess changing over to this plus huge injectors and a big mother****ing turbo will do that

      Nope. My C2-tuned 2.0T blew up 6 weeks later too.

      hmmm, as of now, my only tune option for my AEG 20v motor is still my 440cc tune, which severely hurts this motors new potential.

      Guess I'll start emailing people

      Why not just swap to a 1.8t ecu and harness, that will open your options up massively?

      For pre-2001's, yes. DBC complicates things a lot.

      I talked to Jeff(UM) at waterfest and he said if you can put it together... he will tune it no matter what ecu, but its pricey for the custom tune and you have to get up to his shop in CT

      I just got off the phone with Chris at c2, I asked him about using the 440cc tune with my 20v head swap, he said it should work fine because the MAF should compensate for the extra airflow. ANYWAYS, I asked about a 630cc tune for the AEG and all he needs is the car with the injectors in it and he'll make the tune. So I entertained the idea and even though I'm in FL, I'll see if I can drive up there when this motor project is complete. It won't be free for me, but I would get a discount off the custom tune price.

      So I'll keep you guys posted, unless someone else is closer to KY and wouldn't mind being the guinea pig.

      The 2.0T FSI guys are getting into Eurodyne/Maestro tuning. It's looking really promising.

      APR Stage 2 A4 2.0T= 184hp/224tq
      Maestro basefile + a few tweaks by RAI = 211hp/249tq

      on the exact same hardware, i'm glad I help off on chipping, gonna have some fun next spring.
