Golf R DTUK FSR tuning box work on my gti?
« on: 21 April 2015, 11:25 »
Been offered a golf R DTUK tuning box on another forum for sale, just wondering if this would work on my gti or would it need to be reflashed or what?

Surely an R map would be different to a GTI? :huh:

I can't see how that would work. They have different turbos, intakes etc, so I'm sure the box would be setup very differently.

the box hardware will be the same, you would need to get it reflashed tho

Is it possible to get the box reflagged to the correct map?

I’m thinking about one of these for my 230ps GTI but would be good to keep the unit for use on other cars

Thanks

If you want more power do it properly with a remap and stay well clear of crappy tuning boxes.

It’s not for my CSS it’s for my wife’s GTI daily driver so would like to be able to alter the settings for what she wants and what I want so these boxes are pretty handy for that

Can't she "alter the settings" with her right foot?

You you can’t create an extra 50 bhp by just pressing a bit harder

No, but you can ignor that extra 50bhp the box gives by not pressing quite as hard.
