Tunes, turbos, exhausts, and suspension upgrades.

Thinking of doing an intake and a chip tune any recommendations?

An intake won't add power but will make a bit of noise. Shy of doing a delete downpipe + turbo upgrade the only thing that really nets power is software.

With the Malone Stage 1/Stage 2, does that eliminate the need for the DEF fluid? Assuming you don't delete the downpipe.

Deletes are an optional add on, the standard files are designed around stock emissions components.

Owain, someone mentioned that they swapped out the TCM in their 3.0 TDI after the fix and it corrected the shifting issues people are seeing after the fix. Does Malone Tuning have a TCM flash for the 3.0 TDI’s? I know they offer them for the DSG cars.

Nobody can tune Aisin TCM's, the security has proven to be much better than a German ECM/TCM and they remain uncracked.. many manufacturers use it, if nobody's broken it by now I would not expect it to ever change.

I loaded the stage 2 file on mine this morning. I’ve missed the added power since the “fix”. It’s a huge improvement and like driving a totally different vehicle.

Yes I've heard of someone swapping the TCM to a pre-fixed unit and that worked, might be worth picking up one from a wrecked vehicle that hasn't had the update done. Had a 2014 R line in for a few weeks recently and it wouldn't take VCDS codes post-fix. Aisin units probably won't be cracked ever unfortunately, unless someone puts some brute force in there. Might be able to figure something out with factory tools as well, just been swamped over here. Lots of "might"s and "probably"s though, sure there will be a solution within a couple years if there's enough demand.

Picked up a 2015 Q5 TDI that’s been fixed by the dealer a month ago. Still under warranty. I haven’t been able to find a clear answer on how a Malone or JR tune would impact the warranty if something were to happen. Are these tunes completely reversible if I needed to bring the car in for service? I thought I read the ECU tracks each flash?
