Cheers. I think I'm just gonna go for it one of their tuning boxes. Spoke to them yesterday and had a look at the dyno graph for the new CRD3 system which makes it a bit smoother on power delivery.
Obviously the added power is gonna spin the front wheels. I just don't want to fart on the loud pedal and it be an instant, unusable whomp of boost.
I can always sell it back on if I hate it and apparently there is a choice of three maps on it anyway. One of them should be suitable.
There'll always be a bit of turbo lag depending on gearing and driving habbits, but the pedal box may well go some way to sorting that out. You might redeem it's value a bit more on a manual perhaps over the DSG, particularly if you get the DSG mapped (not sure what you've got) which I would personally do if you were mapping the engine. Dunno how DSG maps work with tuning boxes though, sorry chap.
Yeah you should find a compromise with the different options - people reckonned' they roaded around 240ps and nearly 500nm with the DTUK setup, so it should 'feel' a good 35% more power, for sure.
I'd personally go Revo or something more VAG TDI specific, but up to you of course
Get some Pilot Super Sports anyway, just cause they're awesome and will help out of corners over stock tyres
