But it will still be a tuning box. Took the one on my A3 off as I didn't like the way it affected all the convenience features and how they interoperated (think clunky starts from traffic lights and gear changes that were more aggressive than they should have been with the auto box)
Possibly, although various members on here with the DTUK one have given good feedback on their boxes?
Nevertheless, I would still never pay £1200 for a stage 1 remap.... particularly when a stage 2 with pulley upgrade on the older ECU B8.5 S5 is substantially cheaper and provides much bigger gains.
|Sounds like they are charging an early adoption/exclusivity fee...I would only really be happy getting mine from MRC from what I've read anyway. Hopefully they are working on it (not that I have any plans of getting mine mapped anyway :P).|
Not sure, I was thinking that the smaller SC pulley diameter means it is essentially spinning faster and therefore producing more boost/rpm. Since this is hardware, was then thinking it could be done in isolation of any remap??
MRC post today
"This S5 3.0T has the newer CREC engine code. MRC Tuning can now tune all stages and the Stronic gearbox.
Stock this S5 did 337ps 469nm.
MRC Stage1 Remap it did 434ps 551nm.
MRC Stage1 Remap and Stronic Remap it did 447ps 550nm.
With the MRC Stage2 Package and Stronic Remap it did 480ps 593nm"
And apparently these have patches so can not be detected at the dealers? Still not had to test this myself yet though.
