It'll probably be my next move but at the moment everything is running well and it's just stupidly quick so I'll see how I feel next year!
I agree about 1st gear it's an absolutely mental gear, I was doing 0-60 pulls after I got the work done and it caught me off guard every time
I'm the same as Damo, I'm halfway with Stage 1.5 with a turbo to filter induction kit, Milltek Decat and GPF delete with custom tune on engine and DSG and I'm currently 380/509 with pop and bang map and a few other add ons.
I paid more than half that of the Revo/APR kit and its fully custom...
I got an audi hat, it's cool as a hat can be and they charge £28 for it so not the worst. My mate was with me who has an RS3 so I managed to get him one as well much to the disgust of the sales manager.
I can't see how it can be bypassed mate so I think the only option is to remove the two of them completely from the system.
It's definitely not cheap though, the pipe alone was £500 then fitting was 6 hours due to the nature of how difficult it is so that can obviously vary from garage to...
I was in the same boat as you I wasn't made aware about the GPF filters when I bought it but I just assumed it was needing run in and didn't think much of it but it never got better even with the res delete.
Plus I was getting a remap anyway so it would be daft of me not to go all out!
Course I can buddy DM me your number and if youve got WhatsApp I can send them over no bother at all.
That applys to anyone else that wants to know what the GPF delete sounds like and I'm happy to discuss what costs were involved as well to help people out
I got this fitted last week along with a map to compliment a few other mods at Stage 1+.
Definitely an MOT failure/warranty voider but if its a risk you're willing to take then go for it.
Incredible difference and as an example of how much it frees everything up my car was dyno'd before...
Precisely my point mate, we all know what they're like. I have an indy for services and chances of a recall are slim and even if I need one then I have a guy so really we can get under the radar if it was an issue.
I think in standard form it's a great car but can be improved so I will be...
I have a 69 plate FL and the soundtrack sucks. I did the res delete and it made very little difference so it's booked in for a few weeks time to get a decat and GPF/OPF delete.
Hoping it frees up the sound so I'll keep you posted!
