OK, spoke to Superchips who wouldn't confirm if I had been sent the manual map or not but sent me out a new map. Installed on car and what a difference it makes, happy with the end result. What I have noticed though is that sometimes when I accelerate it takes about 5 seconds to pull away, I can hear the turbo spooling and its like a little delay. This might of been present before and could be a characteristic of the DSG box but I'm only just noticing it more now because of the remap, any information from people with the DSG and Bluefin would be great
What do you mean by "pull away"? Surely not that your car now sometimes takes about 5 seconds to move from standstill when you press the accelerator, or to react and speed up when already rolling?
Is it really 5 seconds?? That's a hell of a long time.
Would need a better explanation of what is happening to say whether it might be normal.
To get around this delay you should do the following....... as you press down hard on the gas also press the downshift paddle (maybe a split second after) on your steering wheel. This will obviously switch you to manual mode for a while but you'll have no delay as it drops a gear and the power will be there immediately.
I always do this if I want to do a quick and speedy overtake or just want to accelerate very quickly while on the move.
It'll probably take you a couple of go's to get the timing of the gas pedal press and paddle downshift spot on, but once you do you'll have seamless downshifts every time.
It's stuff like this that makes me laugh when people say "I don't like DSG/Autos because they are less 'involving' than a manual". Yeah, DSG is less involving if you just plant your foot all the time, but to get the best out of the box you've got to learn all its little quirks and use the throttle/paddles to get most from it.
For me, a manual is far more basic. All you've got to do it press a clutch and make sure you're in second gear most of the time when blasting around bends and in and out of traffic!
