    Question Engine and DSG tuning

    Hi,

    I have a 2014 Jetta 1.4 TSI twin-charged. I am now interested in tuning the engine and DSG (7 speed) and seek advice on the following:

    1. what is the preferred or recommended tuning software apart from APR and REVO for achieving stage 1 and stage 2 tuning for this vehicle. (to be done via OBD II port)

    2. where or is there any image and guidelines available for installation of the catch can?

    3. is the Golf R intercooler better than the Audi S3 intercooler for a upgrade. or is the 2014 OEM intercooler sufficient?

    Thanks any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    APR only do a map for the DQ250 box, I am not sure which one yours has.

    It is not a straight bolt on to use the 1.8?2L intercooler.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Sorry no quick fix here. I am really into Euro vehicles and have been feverishly looking for a reliable forum so here I am.

    How do I know what type of DSG I have?
