    Thread: Best tune for cc

    1. 05-18-2012 01:07 AM #1
      Looking to flash my cc soon I was looking at apr, giac, and revo. Any suggestions on which one I would be better off with ? My vw tech told me that the revo tune would be untraceable when bringing the car in for service I don't know if there is any truth behind that though.

      APR seems to be dealer friendly.

      Add unitronic to the list. Most aggressive tune out there

      Maybe it's just me, but I think the CC is plenty-fast as-is. You are definitely not going to use all that power during city driving, maybe on the highway. Just my 2 cents..

      It's not a rocket , but a stock CC in sport or manual mode will move. I smoked a V6 Camero the other day. Though, I have been thinking of a stage 1 for that extra kick.

      there's nothing wrong with a little extra HP....for most the stock 200hp is good, as it is decently powered....but for the others they need the extra kick (myself included) and it can be easily made into something quick with a little work .02

      I'm going for the APR tune. I done a lot of research on the different tunes and it seams to be the best deal all around plus its on sale right now. Scheduled for the flash next weekend. The Revo tune gives the most power but they try push the turbo too much for my liking.. I'd rather not blow up my turbo.

      The best choice is to go with whichever tune has the best local dealer support. If the local APR dealer is the best, go with them. If the Revo dealer is really well respected, that might be the better choice. I haven't heard of any Stage 1 tunes that would eat up a turbo.

      This is the first time I have dealt with import tuning, but have owned well over 40 cars in my life. I would say I have flash tuned, or modified over 60% of those. I also have extensive background in tuning with custom stand alone software on domestic modern cars. I chose APR. I liked the answers I got when I emailed them. I liked they called me direct to answer my questions and concerns. Plus the fact you can change the tunes and all the features at anytime from inside the car by using just the turn signal stalk sealed the deal for me. No hand held flasher needed. All 4 of my tunes are with me at all times and can be changed in seconds.

      +1 For APR.

      Not to burst your bubble, but there were some MK6 GTI's (same exact TSI engine) that dyno'd last weekened in Chicago....
      Unitronic car put down less power than the APR tuned cars

      Same dyno and all, it was minor....like 5hp/5tq or something, but just saying

      Ive seen the exact same thing but uni came out on top. Only difference was the tune was changed on the exact same car.

      Trackstar dynoed his TSI with UNI and put down 7 or so more whp and a lot more wtq with UNI stage 2 then APR stage 2. same dyno same weather just 2 different tunes.

      Im stating what ive seen & many people including myself like UNi more then apr. Not as a peson that has tried just APR saying they are the best or someone tht has used just uni. Ive used both i have many friends that have used both. All that have swapped to Uni are far happier with the Unitronic tune

      I've been with APR for a long time and have owned a few Audi's, all of them had some sort of tuning and/or mods from APR. Just recently got my CC flashed in hopes to keep pace with the R/T's around town

      Yes there is a BIG difference between stock and a 93 octane flash, can't wait to grab some 100+ for those special occasions. APR has always been good for me, I think I still hold the fastest stage 1 in an A6 on the s4biturbo time slips page. My vote is for APR... my 2 cents

      True
      And they're all within each other power wise....so I don't get how one could be so much better than the other though
      5hp or 5tq difference is really minute

      I think whichever tuner is local to you also plays a role though.
      No Unitronic dealers near me....one just popped up, but it's 2-2.5 hours away.
      APR dealer is/was 15 minutes from me

      5hp or 5tq difference is really minute

      I think whichever tuner is local to you also plays a role though.
      No Unitronic dealers near me....one just popped up, but it's 2-2.5 hours away.
      APR dealer is/was 15 minutes from me
      I felt the same way until i used the UNI tune after being APR tune. I only put my opinion out there like this bc i have tried both stage 2 apr vs stage 2 uni

      I'm sorry, but I'm still confused as to why there are such adamant claims that UNI is that much better than APR. I just got my CC tuned with APR stage 1 two weeks ago and am no longer in the market. However, I'm still curious for my own sake. The last few posts have been nothing but the same repetitive claim that UNI is so much better and that it's based on comparison after using both tunes, etc. But at no point was there an explanation as to WHY it's better. I'm not supporting one tune over another, as I have nothing to compare. I've only had APR experience in a Passat and now my CC. I really would like to hear WHY people think the UNI tune is better, not counting the (relatively) negligible 5 hp/5 tq difference in either direction.

      As another member stated, I went with the tune that was offered at a local dealer. For me, it was APR. In response to the OP, I love APR. It makes the 2.0T car a whole new animal. Just my 0.02.
