As for doing it myself, I just don't have the know how, proper tools or a lift in order to do a job like that. Just glad I found a good shop to help fix this mess and at a really fair price

      I thought about doing it myself... I'm sure I could, but I don't know how to adjust a wastegate properly, and the thought of the closest UM dealer being in Houston.

      The only time I have messed with one is back on the MKIV 1.8T, we used to shut them.

      Seems like a pretty nice kit. I think you can mostly get to it from the top, it does not require changing exhaust manifold which is always a b*tch. But if you're not comfortable I understand. I recently paid a shop to install some parts that were easy peasy just because I lack the time these days having a 2.5 year old daughter.

      I was always a fan of EWG on a big turbo kit . Matter of fact I just might own one of those

      Pretty much the same boat here, work too much and have 6yo daughter, the stock turbo blew up on eurodyne stage 2, I was on my way home from work so I was dead in the water. After VW denied warranty as expected I just had it towed to said shop, part of that decision was they were only a mile away from VW, which helped the tow bill, that and they had a solid reputation. Go figure.

      Hi just wanted to know if anyone on here is or knows of anyone running UM on stage 2 boost levels(blue,green or red) and stacking jb4 and/or meth on top? I'm only on jb4 but looking to expand my build plans

      2017 MK7 R with HPA DP. Just got my Stage "2", 29psi on 90 octane. Just a HPA Downpipe. I had the downpipe in prior to tune, definitely felt an increase in power. I was nervous about the DSG tune as I am quite picky on the shift points. It turned out to be better than expected, very pleased with that aspect. Initial torque RIGHT off the line is much better. 120-200kmh+ is hilariously quick. I need to do more city driving to give a better answer on that... but the zero to impound time has definitely been reduced. Coming out of a valley it just claws coming up the hill, wants more and more. All in All: its a very oem+ experience. Doesn't feel like its aftermarket in any negative way. Doesn't give me the butterflies like a tuned 997 turbo did, but that was 500hp+, can't really expect stage 2 in the R to do that until stg 3 id figure.

      It's apparently a MQB thing

      Nice writeup. did you do 29psi just to be in between 28-30psi kind of middle of the road? no sarcasm intended. I just can't decide what to set at myself. 28 seemed to be max for the IS38 turbo. not sure if 1psi increase on top of that would kill it or even 2psi on top of that. I do not know if it would be a linear increase in torture on the turbo/engine or is it exponential? you know what i mean??
      enjoy!!

      Man I wish they'd release 2-step and no lift shift for the manuals, hopefully once they release their fuel system upgrade it will happen.

      Gosh I don't even know, the local tuner just said go 29 for the bigger power and that's what I went with. The log showed very little timing pulled with crap winter fuel on 90 so that's good. Going to try 91 this summer and see how it likes it.

      After driving a few days with the tune, it's been even better. Bloody fast it is.

      Launch control is perfectly violent!! I have a **** eating grin driving the R.
