Well, I am wondering... since my F350 diesel injectors have LOTS of room to go before they get into a situation where under-fuel becomes an issue. I'm guessing that the injectors on a MK3 can't be overcome by simple exhaust and intake mods, and that's all we have at this time. The injector map in the ECU maxed out? Possibly. And maybe, just maybe, you're on to something, I don't have data. Perhaps that's why nobody has a tune - because the injectors are already at their fuel delivery limits.
