    Just watched this on Tube of You, a good little watch and what can be done. Not to everyone's taste maybe but at least he explained all the differences and what can and cant be done .

    He came across really well I think, I liked how he compared all the exhausts, then explained the intercoolers, good on him. Shame he is the opposite end of our Island to me.

    Interesting to hear the three different variants of the RS3 side by side at the end. PFL sounds raw! But the others not far behind.

    White car sounded good in the end so there is hope for the OPF cars ;) the blue one looks amazing, what colour is that?

    The guy who runs the tuning company is/was a forum member here. Aoon is his name I believe, had a big turbo rs3 PFL some years ago with a whole bunch of mods such as virtual cockpit, R8 carbon ceramic brakes and stuff. Very clever guy for his age, glad to see he’s putting it to use.

    Any idea what these guys are using to tune the car? I've had a look at various bits of software (to avoid going syvecs) and it all looks super janky

    I would love to do this to mine but the liability of doing this should you get caught/crash is not worth the risk. :disappointed:

    Most are using WinOLS if they are any good along with various items for reading and flashing the files back.

    Look at that opf garbage on the downpipe when he's comparing them all. Nice to see it transforms the sound from a POS should of stuck with a golf r to proper exotic rs3 sound.

    Is it really that bad? In Aus we don't have to declare any mods to insurance companies unless its something extreme like changing from a 2.0L to a 3.2L. If anything when you add a downpipe or similar you would increase your insurance agreed value so they would pay more in case of a write off.
    I find it remarkable that an insurance company would decline a claim because of a downpipe which has absolutely no relevance to the accident?

    Insurance companies over here will use anything they can to wriggle out of paying for a claim.

    Some companies even ask you to declare optional extras fitted from the factory

    Yeah, sadly in the UK the terms of the vast majority of insurance companies include a requirement to notify the insurer if the specification is changed from stock. They will claim and performance modification alters the probability of accidents occurring and thus the cost of premiums. In the UK, a downpipe decat is a mot emmisions failure and as insurance is dependant on mot and paying car tax the insurers have further grounds to void policy. We do have a number of specialist insurance services who don't charge extra for non performance enhancing upgrades (lowering springs, aftermarket wheels etc). Worse of all - no E85 at the pumps! You guys have it good in aus!

    American Daza written maps supplied with the flashing dongle.
    They can dial back the wastegate rattle too.

    Sadly no TCU tune but TVS would be a good bet for that.

    The self flashing aspect is useful as is the ability to alter maps/ logging on the fly.

    Seems quite knowledgable when emailed.

    Can't figure that one out, it's a Scottish Ltd company. But the base maps are done in the US? It did seem that way reading some of the info. I presume it's a bit of a cross-atlantic collaboration.

    From what I've seen the base maps are exactly that, very safe - this is not an 'OTS competitor' as it is stands - more a framework for existing tuners to utilise, so you buy their DS1 map and of course the DS1 itself to load and run it. Given some time, I'd suspect it would be pretty awesome, perhaps new names throwing their hat in the ring and get some decent performing maps for it - along with existing tuners - will be interesting to see which ones support it vs sticking with their own flash options.

    I'm looking to map myself (with my brother who has a 4wd dyno and mapping knowledge) and, as far as I can gather, this is an "extract, modify, load" affair rather than live editing. Looks like i'll be ordering a Syvecs :/
