      If it sounded like a shotgun went off with almost every shift and shot balls of fire ... it was Zevion's.

      I heard both at WiTW'12 and IMO it was Zevion's, without question!

      Yea zevion, i think it was yours. what kind of setup do you have other than turbo? like exhaust and stuff, and whats your input on the dsg and the car itself. im thinking about getting one, but i love manual cars and not completely sold on the auto lol.

      Click on the Vortex Thread link in my sig. But basically, it's a 6766 turbo, a fully built motor and a 4inch downpipe and exhaust. Pics and stuff are in the thread. DSG is awesome. Latest software from United Motorsport has spark cut during shifts and it's insane. I'm putting 654WHP down and the DSG takes it all day. Fastest shifts you'll ever hear. Wait until the vid.

      I was a die hard MT guy, but I'm a DSG convert now. I have some new United Motorsport secret DSG stuff happening over the next month or two and then going for MORE power once the DSG can take it.

      Stay tuned.

      No mechanical mods at all. I tried aftermarket clutches, but the best results....stock.

      The key is the software, from United Motorsports. There's some secret sauce going on and they're they guys to help if you're in the market for this stuff.

      I'll get some vids up this week and you can see it working for yourself. It's amazing what the DSG is capable of with the right software.

      Moar low / show-only people need not apply, unless you're on air. Seriously, things break out there if you are too low.

      Haha. My GLI is essentially a FWD Golf R. Lol. My MkV was the grey GLI with the R32 front end. But my wife's R32 was there. Only bringing that next year.

      Zevion or anyone, can explain to me what spark cut does? When was this software updated? and is spark cut only for the turbo software? It sounds soooo cool, I want it *fangirl scream*
