Here come some mods!

Hi all,

Had my car a while now and while absolutely superb I have succumbed to the modding bug!

My car comes back to me today after some development work down at forge and as soon as I pick it up I have ordered a brand new tuning box which is waiting for me down at dtuk.

I'm really looking forward to this and while nowhere near slow. I've seen that their demo car could get down to 3.5 to 60. I doubt I'll get there but I do have a friends vbox to have a blast with on some private roads.

I'll keep you guys updated.....

make sure you remove the pedal box :)

I was planning on it....just to really gauge the difference between states of tune and not have the pedal box interfere. I want to see what this thing can do!

Well.....having had the box fitted since roughly 3 today, I still can't comprehend the power this thing now pulls with. The standard car is not slow at all. But now......real supercar slayer.

So having had the box on the car for a few days now. I can say I'm still not getting used to the extra power the car now has.
I quickly got familiar with the standard car and was pleased with its performance but it's a different level now.

It feels like it's a gear lower during acceleration than it actually is. This isn't really a small step up in performance. It's quite a trek.

Very pleased thus far!

I've tried only map 1 zero, map 1 +1, map 1+2 ... and 1+3... the last being viscious...LC works better with map 1 zero as I think it wheelspins more with the others... once rolling though the others are quicker for sure... I havent tried map 2 or 3... have you guys had any experience?

It seems like map 2 or 3, might be more of a goldilocks setup for LC...where its less about the brut force, and more about launch optimisation :)

so thats probably map 1 zero... I still thought it was nice and smooth... obviously notably quicker... go to 1+2 or 1+3... and then youll see supercar slayer aggression haha.

Maps 2 and 3 are detuned versions of map 1

So this box is just plug and play? Does this leave a trace on the cars memory even if removed? Is it TD1 or something thats flagged up?

Ill be getting some sort of tune but don't want to screw my warranty up right away!!

Btw, love your car Caval4r!

andrew, is it ok that some people are using Map1 +1 +2 or +3???

the dyno sheets, TUV approval and lambda readings I've posted all relate to the box set on map 1 zero (preset), when we dyno'd our RS3 on map 1 plus 2 the difference on the sync was tiny, and the curve wasn't as smooth..

If i still had an RS3 id use map 1 zero..

It's all I've used and it's superb. Don't feel the need to muck about with it. And thanks R55ENS. Is yours glut orange?

What about Insurance? I know some will not insure modded cars. If you don't tell them your insurance is not valid?
