My coolant temps in traffic are 205-218F, I need a tstat to make the MK3 happy. Intake temps when moving are ~5 above ambient.

Just picked up my device this morning from across the border and I must say I absolutely love it. During the 300km+ drive around town and on the interstate, I noticed the improved throttle input many are talking about. The car now has about 5-7 throttle input stages as opposed to the 2-4 stages it felt like it had before (dead ---> fairly slow ---> decent acceleration ---> stepping on it hard and it takes its sweet time to decide to go fast).

I don't really feel any power gains, but the improvements to the throttle input have made this car feel that much better. Also, I can't really talk about gas mileage because I'm currently running the 87 tune with 91 E0 in the tank... I don't have access to the 91 tune at the moment.

By the way, I only drive on sport mode with "manual" control. I tested it out for a bit just using the automated sport mode and noticed it was smoother.

Only one way to know if there truly is any power gains and that's when people start to strap it to the dyno. Mine comes Monday so I'll be eagerly awaiting the arrival.

Has "christmas morning" passed enough for anyone to take a bit of video for us?
I know everyone likes videos, and for everyone who haven't had a chance to order it, I know we all want to see this throttle response, maybe a new 0-60?


Something! PLEASE!

:)

Santa (ups) just dropped off my present!!!
*Edit* Wasn't able to install the tune because I have several DTC codes on the car (had no idea). For those of you that purchased the tuning device are these the DTC codes you pulled up upon installing the device: PO460, U0140, U0253, U0300, U0422, U3003, U0126? Really don't want to install the device till I can find out what the codes are for and then clear them if they're relevant or not. Could just be from removing the battery previously.
