There are some mistakes here that do need to be addressed. Where did you get this information?

Thank you for pointing out the technical information that is incorrect. I don't think I did so bad if that is all you found. I am sure you could find more. Further more that info was given to me by a very respectable source over 2 years ago when I first started with my TDI and nozzles were just starting to be available. I did see GeWilli's site and the nozzle photos some time ago, maybe I do not remember the diam. designations correctly. From what I read here, I more than likly am in spec since the diam. seems to be less important than the spray pattern. Now I have no problem editing the info you pointed out. My intent is not mis-info, but to help cut down on repeat questions here.

My 2K Golf Automatic has an Up II chip programmed by Rene and sent to my local installer at that time in Calif., map B056 from Up I map, FF79. Bosio nozzles PP520's pop tested. My OMI is out now getting thermal coated, 3" CAI and 2.xx" exhaust with cat to a Flowmaster muffler. I add 3oz of CENTANE booster per fill up. NO SMOKE Until WOT and not much then. It smoked really bad with the Up I chip and PP520's when I first installed them. My IQ has not been changed from stock by me. Maybe I just got lucky.

I am not sure how to answer, since everyone thinks it sounds good, but describes it differently. My best stab is low and throaty. With my back seats up nothing, with them down it does come into the cabin, but so does tire noise. I like it. With my radio on low or med volumn it is unoticeable, even when accelerating hard. Of course unless your window is down , but I do not attract attention from bystanders.

A boost gauge and Exhaust Temp. Gauge should be installed before any engine modifications. This gives you visible engine health indications and can save alot of heart ache later.
I am just wonder what suggestions for mounting position and vendors for EGT and Boost gauges are suggest for A4 Jetta's. I've looked around and really can't find any posts specifically for the A4. Any links to photos of anyone elses setups would be appreciated.

I searched but didn't find info on ECU realignment after sending your ECU off for a chip tune. Does anyone know a link? When is realignment necessary? What is the lowest form of Vag-com life (409.1 shareware?) necessary to realign?

That's something that you should've discussed with you're chiptuner of choice and if it's impossible for you to do it perhaps you could take an extra step in meeting pesonaly.Meaning that if you had no idea it would need it they should tell you that over the phone or email.


The second thing you could do and it's FREE... click on the link on top of the web-page where the titles are ...right underneath "Articles" sais VAG-Com List... it has a list of valid/active VAG-com users you can locate in your area... contact one of them for help.

Im not going to disagree with people here, for the most part, except to say that everything you do to increase performance plays a small part in the package. That said, I did notice a hugh increase in how the car pulled at the upper RPM ranges after going to a 2.5 Techtonics SS exhaust. No cat no muffler. The car pulled much harder after the exhaust install. It's simply part of the improvement in the entire system.

Tom,

That's all that matters! Some feel it, some do not. I have still been playing with a cai even though most believe the stock is best. It's good, but not effecient due to how the air has to cross the filter after entering the box. Any way, Enjoy!

OK, there are some things I need clarification on guys. Since this is the "sticky for newbies", this would be a good place to answer because I'm sure others may have the same questions. I am asking specifically about the 05.5+ PD TDI motors, Auto tranny, AND, I intend to run BioDiesel at some point and time.

1.) It sounds like the most popular way to increase performance in a TDI is by flashing your ECU ("chipping") and by upgrading the nozzles. There are two popular chip flashes (the RocketChip and the Upsolute). I understand that they are both good products, but I'm interested in opinions for my particular application (06 PD running BioD). Would one be more suitable than the other? Pluses and Minuses?

2.) KermaTDI doesn't make the Sprint nozzles for the PD's, but instead sells injector kits. Can someone who has used them give me their overall impression and recommendation (stage I or "race" version), and has anyone had any experience running BioD with these? Why can't we just replace the nozzles like on previous model years?

3.) Do the DSG trannys have any issues connected with chipped TDI's with upgraded injectors? I understand that most manual's will need a clutch upgrade.

4.) Any issues in general about running BioD in a Stage II modded TDI versus stock?

Please, no BioD comments unless it pertains directly to these or other performance mods. I know all about the warranty issues and haven't decided whether I will heed the warnings or not. Eventually this car will definitely be running BioD in some proportion, I'm just trying to decide how compatible that will be with potential performance mods.

So I can chip, OR upgrade injectors, but not both? What about a tuning box with upgraded injectors?
