I received the powergate yesterday. I had to borrow a PC from my father-in-law because I have a MacBook. Has anyone tried to use WineBottler to run the program on a MacBook? It's working fine with the PC, but I'll need to give it back to him soon.

I tried WineBottler and couldn't get it to work. I guess I'll buy a cheap windows tablet and use it. I had a Dell Venue Pro for VCDS, but sold the cable and bought the Hex-Net model that works with iPads/iPhones.

I installed the tune today. It's much better than the Chipwerke module. It feels like a stock tune, but with more power.

I'm new to the diesel tuning def thing. I emailed Ken a while back and wanted a little more info from you guys. I have always had modified and tuned v8 cars and I am looking for a sleeper to run with them. What are your suggestions I have a 2014 q5 tdi that I purchased used with 12,500 miles. I know it came from Texas but that's it. I actually love how it drives just want more. Go ahead and throw out some suggestions. And for those with tunes what are your numbers/ times. I don't want a dyno queen btw.

My wife and I both have a Q5 TDI. Mine is tuned and hers is stock. The tune is much smoother and the throttle response is better. I couldn't tell you what the numbers are, but I can use VCDS on both to get a 0-60 time.

Barry that would be great. And if anyone knows what would I need to keep stock tune and Malone stage tune to switch when I take the Q in for service.

When you purchase the tune you'll have to purchase the flash loader as well. You can go with Malone or JR Auto Tuning and use it.

Very nice change to the way the car performs especially when using the top part of the rev range, pulls smoother, stronger and longer. Moving off the line seems to have more snap too, I have never spun the tires on pavement with this Q5 until today. Nice!
BTW, other than the new Malone Tune, this car is still stock.
Future changes are in the planning stages.
This is very impressive and I am interested.
Does anyone have actual data on engine performance, fuel economy and emissions that they can share?

Bump

Were you able to get any videos of the exhaust? Seems everyone has a very capable piece of tech that also answers phone calls attached to them these days

The problem is getting someone to put the car on a linked roller dyno, and then being able to trust and publish that data. We've only had a few dyno runs of these and they vary a good amount. Our dynapack doesn't work and neither do most of the other units as the AWD system isn't mechanical and can be REALLY moody. Fuel economy on deleted cars usually improves by 10%+ and it lowers EGTs and exhaust back pressure which should help with reliability. Nothing to really be gained in terms of fuel economy on a stock vehicle and I would not believe claims from anyone stating otherwise unless they're altering emissions hardware. Boost is raised fairly minimally, almost all of the power is coming from the fuel mapping. It's a massive improvement though, we're seeing 340WHP/550lb-ft or so out of the BMW 3Ls and I wouldn't be surprised if the VWs were making similar power to the crank with the 2260 turbos. One of the dynapak reps has a V10 and much preferred a local tuned V6 to his car, and that's saying something.

We try to keep our phone number private so we can get work done in the course of the day and so our dealers have lines open. We have plenty of distributors and we don't mind making calls when/if needed, but for the sake of being thorough and having everything written down emails are far better.

I had a Malone tune on my Audi Q7 2010 with Buzzken dpf delete and it was awesome! It pulled hard, zero issues (and I was at 140K miles at buy back)

Would you guys be throwing a discount for those of us who decided to stick with TDI and just upgrade after the buyback? Similar to what APR did after you totaled your car lol...


Thnks
