Over the last few weeks, we have had the opportunity to do N/A research and development on a 2010 Golf from a customer who was gracious enough to leave it here for an indefinite amount of time while we tweak it and use it as a template for our Mk6 software lineup (before we turbo it). Needless to say, it has been great to do R&D on our new dyno and after our software technician got hands on the car, we are quite happy with the results!
Obviously, the dyno sheet is an important part of measuring the performance of a car but in the driver’s seat, the results were a lot more impressive than what a couple lines on a piece of paper could show. I personally got the chance to get behind the wheel and the difference between what it was just a mere 3 weeks ago to what it is now put a smile on my face. The mid range is WAY more powerful and where you really feel the most difference, which is great considering 95% of drivers keep their cars in that area and not the high RPM’s. The power-band was a lot smoother, the drive-by-wire lag was significantly decreased, the throttle response was on point, and the overall drivability of the car was drastically improved.
Although we couldn’t get a TRUE base run since the car came into us with intake and exhaust, we are trying to find a completely stock 2010 to come in here and give us a base number to gauge our increases. Also, since the car is an automatic, we couldn’t take it into the high RPM range before the car shifted on its own but we definitely made the most of what we had.

I have a 2010 in a manual and did 163WHP(dyno dynamics dynomometer)when I just had carbonio cai and a magnaflow. I just got unitronic stage 2(also have usp midpipe) and am a bit dissapointed but will dyno again soon. I may return it and wait for you guys again who knows. I am not sure of any dealers in chicago though I got my unitronic from a shop just 5miles away. You guys still need to pull the ecu correct because of the new encryption?

Took my ecu and shipped to c2 over night.got it back a few days later and trust me they wouldn't ship back a dead unit...it's not that sensitive...it unplugs, you box it, they flash you install...then you smile!
Sent from the bottomless pits of HELL!
god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!
C2 stage 2 TURBO!!! ACHTUNG!!! 2.5liter 5cylinder contents under pressure!!!
If a car with an aftermarket intake and exhaust was your testbed, what can those of us with no mods whatsoever expect from this tune?
