don't confuse EA288 and EA888, two different beasts Now if rocketchip has tunes out for the EA888, I'd love to snag a home program tuner for my 1.8T that maintains 87 octane rating. So far all I see is APR offering 87 tunes.

RocketChip has had EA288 tunes out for about a year now. IBW has it on his white whip.

Can't take credit for it. I read it somewhere (maybe here??) and gave a shot at the mod. Was very surprised in the outcome. Definitely worth the time.

Hello everyone, VW and TDI rookie here. Just picked up a 2015 GSW TDI automatic two days ago. Definitely a big change from my 2008 Toyota FJ cruiser haha

Welcome aboard! I traded a 2009 4Runner for my 2015 GSW, so I can appreciate your transition. I think my average mileage in the 4Runner was about 19 mpg, and that was with considerable highway miles logged.


You should be able to double your mpg at least. Timely, considering the direction fuel prices are headed.


Enjoy, and ask questions frequently. We're here to help.
