    Powergate is the most versatile device ever created for serial programming via diagnostic plug. By using all the newer protocols of communication (K-LINE, CAN and J1850), Powergate can read and write the Electronic Control Unit of many vehicles on the market. Powergate has an internal memory which can contain, in addition to the original file, two different maps. In this way, the owner of the vehicle has always at his disposal two different developing steps of the map, to be uploaded on the ECU at any moment. Updating protocols of communication has never been so easy a connection to the internet and a few minutes are all it is required to gain the access to Alientech Data Bank for downloading everything is needed to make Powergate operative on the largest number of vehicles as possible. This solution was studied for different operating situations, as it is suitable both to professional tuners who want to propose a product always up-to-date, than to users who make use of Powergate solely on their own cars. A very versatile device with first-class features. The display of items on its large screen is very simple. The device itself will guide you through the reading and writing of the ECU, with clear and detailed instructions. Another interesting innovation of Powergate is the option to quickly and easily check and erase DTC Errors (Diagnostic Trouble Code)

    What Voorhees said basically!

    Got a mild and a strong map to play with. Haven't done much playing yet as the car has been in having the wheels restored to their former glory. Playtime is scheduled for tomorrow morning. The limited driving I've managed to do has been very good indeed

    No endless tweaking needed lol. Was encountering a slight issue with the mild map where it would cut back the boost under full load in 4th, 5th and 6th gear at 3000rpm. Thankfully the strong map shows no signs of this It is quite simple fricking epic!!!

    Those with a 170 TDI, give CARBON CHIP TUNING a call. Absolutely top bunch of lads who love their cars just as much as we do

    On my own whilst the missus is out shopping so grabbed the laptop and started going through some things on VAGCOM just cos I can

    I think VAGCOM has been updated recently as I could never find the option to code fog lights as DRL's, but it has and the result is this











    And a couple of the wind deflectors I recently purchased

    I need to have a good look at vag com just to see what I can do!

    Cheers! That's a job for Monday

    A lot of the stuff depends on what year your car is; I'm lucky in that being a 57 plate it seems to have been fitted with a higher end version of the Central Electrics module meaning I can enable the extended menus in the DIS and enable fogs etc etc

    You done the wiring for the coming home / leaving lights?? Mine was just a software change, didn't need the wiring. You retro-fitted the puddle lights too? If so I can turn them on oo eer
