Peddle Box not for DSG
« on: 19 November 2015, 10:26 »
Just been chatting to Andrew @ Dtuk and he does not recommend the peddle box if your is dsg.  Just for info for anyone considering it, apparently the dsg box hates it.

Yes, with some more digging there are reports of people with DSG Rs fitting them and then removing them after having sensitivity issues.

This is a shame as I hate the initial dead feel of the Rs throttle and am seeking a solution.

Yep the dead throttle issue is on the GTD as well & I hate it even with the tuning box.  I am considering a switch to Merc because of this as they don't suffer from it.  Hope I have saved you some cash anyways?

Indeed 14 days but why chance it if it's not recommended in the first place?

But several people are using it with DSG so its not as if you re throwing your money out the window. If it doesn't work there is nothing lost but time.

Looks like we need Andrew@DTUK to clarify the situation

I've PM'd him asking for clarification and to comment on this thread

Good point perhaps some that are using it with the dsg can offer there opinions ?  Always good to have direct user input
