    Re: Back, with a tsi s/c

    Re: Amarok De-CAT

    @Jonboy...what exactly are you doing with regards to the EGR blank off? I assume your "Fix" is a cooler bypass and not valve? Maybe you can offer some clarity.
  6. Re: Looking for an < R320 000 Highline Amarok DC

    Re: Audi TT

    Should have the gen 3 TSI like in the MK7 GTI, way better than the previous Gen TSI from what I have seen. If DSG should be 7 speed , which should be wet clutch. Should be a reliable car in my opinion

    The quality of the map/Tune/Tuner etc is the key to this question. I tune and have had many cars and with my respective tune/tuner/provider, I have had no issues thus far.
