What tune?
« on: 28 March 2017, 22:25 »
So my MK7 GTI Performance is now a year old, thinking its time to upgrade a few areas.

Thinking of lowering with spacers and maybe a bit of wrapping etc.

But tuning, I've never been so confused, so far i figure my options are - DT box, COBB, JB1, JB4, or remap. Are there more?

So questions to each one of the options.

1. What are the average gains?
2. What are the Pros/Cons?
3. Can they all be picked up by dealer?
4. Im in the Uk, and struggling to compare prices with various dealers. What is the current best price available?

Apologise if this all sounds a bit stupid. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have MK7 Gti PP and got APR stage 1 software. Had forge intake and turbo muffler delete and got 334bhp and 374lb/torque. Car is so much faster and pulls a lot better on motorway. It will be detected by dealers unless you get the map removed and before you have to take it to a dealer. My APR dealer takes out and puts software back on free of charge when i need to take it in for servicing etc. Its absolutely worth it in my opinion as the differnece is night and day

Doesn't matter if your Apr dealer removes the remap or not it can still be detected by dealers. All the things mentioned can be detected even tuning boxes it just depends if your dealer knows where to look or if you are trying to claim on the warranty for something that may have been affected by a remap.
