Nice early start again and today was was my 4th visit to R-Tech and on 4 different cars and yet again over the moon with the results. Took the Golf R down today for an R-Tech Custom Stage 1 Map & R-Tech DSG Map.
I have had suspicions that my car was not totally standard from Day 1 just by the way it drove in comparison to my previous 6R and discussed this with Niki about 3 Weeks ago and after an initial Power Run today it was confirmed.
It seems the car already had an Unkown Remap of some description? The Gearbox still had the stock mapping so was hitting the DSG Torque limit of 320LB/FT and then limiting the Torque creating quite a dull driving experience as it was totally flat and in-between Gear Changes there was a slight delay also.
The unkown map was removed and a New Base File and DSG Map was uploaded, After various Power runs including some Road Driving and Data Logging the map was tweaked to minimise Surge and the end results where....320BHP & 356LB/FT Of Torque!
Niki suspected the car might have had the Pre-Cat removed at some point as the car seemed to want to keep on making power but he capped it at 320BHP to be on the safe side.
Totally different car to drive, Just pulls and pulls and the Mid Range and Partial Throttle is much better. The DSG Map is also superb, So quick through the gears and sounds fantastic!
I was initially disappointed to find out the car was already mapped and even though figures wise the Peak BHP is similar to when the car first arrived the way the car drives is like night and day! Plus the added Bonus that the car now has a proper map installed and is totally safe.
