UM because I'm not a "fanboi." I really trust Jeff's work. More power with less boost and more linear/smoother delivery than APR? Yea that's there.
Other than that? I've lost respect for APR with their price gouging, ridiculous markups, and their representative on this forum trying to bash other tuners in their own threads. That's why I'm at Forge Twintake over VWR intake, Autotech hpfp over APR's ridiculous price for one, and UM tune.
Other than what's stated in my first "paragraph," I guess everything else is subjective/perspective.

I am trying to learn more about UM and they have zilch on their website... a google search of "united motorsports golf r tune" does not even pull up UM's website. Is this some esoteric cult that I need to be initiated into to find out more about it?
I have Unitronic on my car but I didn't vote yet because I am switching. Their GTI tune worked great for me and I had zero complaints but I think it's time to see other tunes...
I was dead set on APR but now I hear of this mythical UM tune... need moar info!

i was only able to find a UM tuner by the grace of another member on here, abeR. he gave me the screen name of a guy local to me and i was able to get ahold of him and set up the flash. you can try to contact jeff on here. i think his screen name is something like jeffness or jeffness1.

Got the APR 93 octane stage 1 program today. Very happy with it for sure! Actually my son went and got it done.......lol.......while I was at work. Some people might say "what? you let your son do it?) Well, he got rid of his 370 hp (to the wheels) eclipse before he went to Afghanistan, and now has a EVO 8. Sooooo, I trust him lol
im currently running apr stage 2 plus as it was the only software available in the beginning of march that i could find anyway. i called around recently to a couple of apr/revo dealers to see what they saw performance wise and they said they are about the same. they did say apr was smoother then the revo and i have heard and saw dyno sheets that kinda prove that. I will be getting the giac stage 2 plus extreme file when it comes out. i was told by them that they are getting 400 or higher in Europe hp to the crank with water meth. you do need a 3 inch intake w/maf and a rs4 fuel pressure reg but from what i have been seeing that should be making the most power when it is released later on this year.
The results of this poll are very pleasing. Thank you for all the support! We'll continue to support the Golf R platform with several more products about to hit the market. You may see several of them at H2O international this year.
