      There's a guy over in the UK that's just done that (Decatted it), and ran an 11.3 in his S-Tronic spec'd car.

      Looking at the exhaust system - it's all pretty good from factory!

      Wish we had more exhaust options available!
      IE: A nice de-catted downpipe replacement that keeps the factory catback. Probably just going to run de-catted factory downpipe for now.

      Yes, "MitchyRS". He is on here and was kind enough to lend some help via PM.
      I am going to start off by modeling after his simple build, K&N, De-Cat & Flash. If it's good enough enough for 123mph traps, it's good enough for me!

      I'd be happy to buy a large catless downpipe, if it could be mated to the stock catback however!

      Nice! Definitely an effective route. That gearbox is probably worth 3/4 of a second down the strip though.

      Even if you can get a high 11 @ 120ish - that's still pretty impressive.

      I've got a milltek race system to refit to my car, so keen to see how much extra power that free's up.

      Arin, what's the deal with the "Left Foot Brake" feature? APR's website mentions that the stock software disables throttle when brake is applied. Am I reading that right? It seems that I can brake and blip the throttle fine. What exactly does this feature do, and is included with the software upgrade?

      Hold your foot on the brake and the gas at the same time and the engine will cut power after a moment.

      In motorsport it's handy to brake with your left foot while not coming off the throttle. This reenables that ability.

      I will try it. So is this something included with the standard stage 1 upgrade? I couldn't tell from how it was worded on the website...said it was "available", but didn't use the word "included".

      If you hit the brakes first and then hit the throttle, it works just fine stock (this is needed to enable "heel and toe" braking / throttle during down-shifting). The converse is where it cuts out.

      Oh, so you can't just tap the brakes while on throttle to settle the car. Not a huge deal unless you track it.

      Might have already been answered, but if I ship my ECU overnight to APR, does APR pay to overnight it back to me or is that an additional cost? Might have to garage my car for a few days to get in on the sale!

      Shipping is up to the customers. We can ship it any method you like from ground to next day air.

      Meh, $200+ for shipping doesn't sit well with me. Have you had any internal discussion on extending the sale for TTRS customers since dealerships do not yet have hardware? Everyone in my area says it'll be another 2-3 weeks.

      Yeah, hate to keep beating the dead horse, but when will my local dealer have the tools for my car?

      We are working on it now and expect the tools to be out in April. I'll have more details in the coming weeks.

      More important to me is the program switching. I love what APR stands for, but the switching seems to be a core need for me. GIAC is currently offering it, and I am finding myself more and more interested.

      Is this realistically going to happen in the next month or so?

      From what I'm told, yes. They were in the final stages of it but the engineer working on the project was pulled to another one and will continue once he's finished.

      Don't forget about the international customers, too!

      I plan to get Stage 1 (or 2?) and the RSC exhaust when they're available in Germany (or the UK).

      We would like to thank APR for making our day today, it was an amazing experience. Everyone we talked to was polite and professional (special thanks to Ryan), must say, it is a pleasure doing business with you.
      As far as the tune, we drove mostly on the highway, but had a chance to feel the power getting from the on-ramp to the highway.......honestly the on-ramps are to long now, half way through the ramp I saw triple digits...
      Leaving APR made me feel like I have new car again
      Within next few days we will enjoy Tail of the Dragon, by then we will have a better feeling of the new tune

      The final word has been stated multiple times. The older style ECU of the TTRS does not collect TD1 codes.

      Seems interesting that Audi would go through the trouble of encrypting this old-style ECU without adding something like the TD1 code to it. Either they were too cocky and thought no one could break the encryption, or they've hidden something that the Tuners aren't seeing.

      It's simply an old ECU type.

      We are now down to a one-week window of opportunity for the Spring sale (if we flash at the dealers). Any ideas on if all dealers will be receiving their tools by this weekend or if you would be willing to allow us (TT-RS owners) the exception of paying now for stage 1 until dealers have the capability to flash?
