      I am confused on why jeff couldnt make more power out of a 2.75 inch maf housing? I did 400whp on one at 21.5 psi. Regardless, I am sure he will get it straightened out.

      How are the clutch packs holding up? Any engagement surge or slipping? I havent decided if I want to grab a set yet or not.

      Also, any piston slap with the wossners? I have a set sitting next to me ready to go in with some IE rods as well.

      Nice build.

      Saw your car @ Further last time I was up there getting re-flashed. Took a picture of mine with yours and another UG golf.

      Like I said, it is a fairly conservative tune and we really want to make sure the right hardware is in place before we push the motor to its limits; I have complete faith in Jeff's abilities. The clutch packs are great, no slippage/surge whatsoever with the new DSG file and as smooth as stock. I think the peace of mind factor alone makes them worth it. I have not heard any piston slap from the wossners and I'm pretty diligent about letting the car warm up properly.

      Not yet, only thing would be the dyno video, I'll grab that from my friend and post it up at some point.
