So after a long, long day in AmD Tuning, it's finally tuned up! Better pictures will be uploaded over the coming week once I get some under car shots and give her a clean before showing her off publicly.
They spent a fair few hours mapping the ECU and DSG properly for me, during the early power runs the clutch packs were slipping, despite only having covered 32K miles. The torque has been mapped down in both the lower and upper ranges to make sure the clutch packs handle the power smoothly and the DSG map was also tweaked a fair bit to make sure it's at the very limit of what can be achieved. Needless to say, beyond where I am now will require some non-reversible modifications so I'll have to seriously think about things now.
I'll write up about the ECU and DSG maps in a week or so once I've covered some miles and got the DSG trained up. Initial impressions are mixed while I adjust to the new sounds and feel of the car. Power delivery is a bit brutal at the moment and the noise one shifting at high RPM is something I need to get my head around, currently not liking the sound it makes as it sounds brutal again but guess that's just the price you pay for going to a higher level of tune!
I will say at even this early stage (less than 100 miles covered) it's a totally different machine to drive, the power is so much more available, so much earlier and for so much longer. I'd like to get some proper figures of 0-62mph and 0-100mph as its certainly a fair bit quicker than stock! I haven't even tried launch control yet (was disabled on my stock map).
