^Thanks for the kind words Ross



Today in the Skunkwerx shop was a brand new 2014 Passat TDI with only 741 miles on the odo. Malone tuned it to stage 1.5 for an additional 25 hp and 65 lb-ft of torque. I also installed a set of nice, progressively wound H&R sport lowering springs for about 1.3" - 1.5" drop and firmer handling. Completely changed the character of this car . Feels much better connected to the road and a whole lot less body roll in the corners!

Passat drove great on the way home, Dax. Feels completely different and like it should have in the first place. Good torque, great driveability and no longer threatens to wind up on its roof with every turn of the wheel.
Mission accomplished for sure.
Thanks for your professional and detailed attention.
Now all i need to do is not do anything else to it....

I'm looking at getting the 1.5 with Econo tune, and the DSG tune done in the next couple months. Do you have to wait for the equipment to tune the DSG, or do you already have it?

I would love to have the DSG tune today, but I am going to wait until I get the 40K service done. I have 37,814 on it right now, so I should hit 40 within the next couple of weeks. I will be ready for the tune shortly after that.

Yeah, I am going to take it down to Richard's (close to Atlanta) with all the parts, and learn how to do it all. I was a Toyota mechanic for a few years in my previous life, but I am completely ignorant when it comes to diesel.

I will keep you in mind for my regular maintenance though! I don't want to take it to the dealer for oil changes.

I recently had Skunkwerx install a Malone stage 2 tune on my TDI. I am amazed with the results! Skunkwerx was extremely knowledgeable about anything TDI. Skunkwerx is the only place I will trust with my TDI from now on. Thanks again Skunkwerx!

NOTICE:

Due to needed service on Malone's equipment used for writing Skunkwerx's 2009 to present ECU tunes (and all DSG tunes) these specific tuning services will not be scheduled for a short time starting February 18th. The equipment is being shipped for service to Germany and the goal is to be back online with tunes within a week, but 2 weeks of down-time is possible.

If you are interested in one of these tunes, there are still a few appointment slots available before then. Please call or email with inquiries, contact info is available via link by clicking the logo in my signature below.

Tuning for cars model years 2000 to 2008 will not be affected.

Thanks for understanding and I will update this post once those services resume.

Dax,
Super happy with the Malone 1.5 tune you did on the new Passat. Powerband is about 2000-3500. Much lower or higher isn't real productive but.....
Ran it down to Florida and back, 2500 miles, averaging over 70 mph and over 42 mpg!
No need to downshift from 6th on interstate to pass, even in mountains. just push it to the floor anytime rpm's are more than about 2000 and it pulls strong enough to move.
It's a highway car for sure. I don't really care for it that much around town. Anytime it's below about 10mph i gotta go down to first gear which seems strange.
Swapped out the Hankooks for Michelin Primacy and added a bigger rear sway bar. It actually handles really well now! The steering has always felt great, but now the car does what i ask when i ask and then stops moving instead of wallowing all over the place like with stock springs.
Again, thanks so much for working me in to your schedule and doing a professional job setting it up.
Matt

Got my 1.5 and DSG tune from Dax. Worth the money! Dax is a knowledgable guy, and willing to share it. Getting the rest of my 40k tomorrow.
Thanks again!

Just wanted to take the time to give a big bump for Dax. I took my car to him last weekend for a timing belt change and to check my camshaft which he changed out with a frank06 stage 2 cam. My car had some hesitation issues in the lower gears along with black smoke and Dax was very professional and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is needing anything done to their TDI. He has a head full of knowledge and has answered all my emails (I have sent a bunch.. LOL). I wish him the best and hope his business will continue to expand. I definitely know where I will be taking my car going forward in the future!
