Re: i need a turbo!!! (PSAC)

I'd toss this question up in the IPD performance section. Lucky should have some tips for you <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: i need a turbo!!! (Edogg218)

Does it require a retune?

Re: i need a turbo!!! (Edogg218)

Once you have the hybrid, you'll be afraid to floor it because it pulls so hard and fast that it's hard to shift into second gear quickly enough. Not a bad problem to have, though...

Re: i need a turbo!!! (Edogg218)

I see you have the RICA tune and they probably already have a map for that turbo now... You suppose IPD/MTE could do a remap to get there tune to work with that Turbo and how inclusive...? Thanks for the info, and your wagon sounds sick... I just don't think that I am ready for a turbo upgrade yet... Maybe when I get my motor rebuilt down the line... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
