Good looking Golf - I'm guessing your somewhere south of the equator?
I like the Dyno cell, complete opposite to here in the UK where they are mostly dark dingy holes

I am from South Africa. Hahahaha this Dyno is built outside and just has glass sliding doors so it's completely opened.

I never get any cel lights but I did have some issues with my O2 sensor, bank 1 sensor is near the turbo and bank 2 is after the catalytic converter. Best to get your car scanned by VCDS or even using the OBDeleven. OBD eleven was the most useful tool I used when I had issues it's let's you see what fault codes you getting and gives you live data from the car. If you do get your car scanned you can post your codes here and I try and help you if I can. From what I know if you car is mapped it should fix the cel light because you get that light when you remove the catalytic converter ask the tuner to scan you car and see what fault codes you getting. Did you install a cat fooler or adaptor on your downpipe? And how is the car going are there any other issues like breaking up or stalling when you driving the car?

no break up or stalling mate. cars driving 100%. i'll grab a picture of the dyno print out and post it see what ye guys think .
im using Carly obd scanner. fault is relating to 02 sensor .

P0030 is the code I'm getting. I don't think its a faulty 02, I think its just cos of the reading its getting and cats removed. I ordered a 02 spacer this morning so ill throw that on when it arrives and see if it makes a difference .

From the rosstech says its a faulty heating element on the O2 sensor because you changed the downpipe just double check that you O2 sensors are plugged in properly and check if there's no damaged wires with the heat these wires get damaged if you get the adaptor just make sure you put after the catalytic converter. Hows the Mk5 after the tune I had my car 6 years with no mods now my car feels completely different there's power all over the rev range. I also managed to race a golf 6R dsg on a rolling start and managed a 3 car gap over 1/4 mile and my car is manual.
