odd I thought all canadian TDIs came with coolant heaters.

Also check out removing clutch delay valve, I've heard it makes a huge improvement as well.

I'm about 14,000 miles post fixes. I've put the Stage 2 Malone on soon after that and was a noticeable improvement. Very happy nearly a year later.

There is a covered plug built into the grill by the driverside fog light...

unfortunately the cord was pilfered by the previous owner and not returned on trade in. (Proprietory plug it looks like)

Car is garaged nightly throughout the winter... so no real 'need' for the plug in heater...

I am toying with the idea of adding the aux cabin heater to my car though and hopefully programming it in with vcds...

So far, this thing tows my ATV on the freeway at 80mph hitting about 25mpg no problem in 5th. Otherwise, I'm ok with the general performance of the car.



Those of you with the tune I am jealous about the improved MPG and Torque (indirectly power).


Do I need some kind of cable to do the throttle and torque mods?

I bought a previously owned DieselGate GSW S a year ago in December. Took it for Phase 2 this past December. Definitely on the fence between tuning and the extended warranty. For now my budget requires me to stay stock and I do enjoy the car the way it is, so I'm okay with that. However, I have had an opportunity or 2 to drive tuned VeeDubs in the past so I'm also aware of the potential.

While I've wanted a TDI for almost 20 years, this is my first VeeDub, my first TDI and my first turbo. Loving it so far.

I'm researching piggyback tuning, there is not much 1st hand experience here in it....

I would like to keep the powertrain and emissions warranty intact as well. The last time I had any warranty on my daily driver was probably 2005.!

Coming from a Malone stage 1.5 tuned brm jetta, I am finding that there is not much power below 2100rpm...i am finding that I have to shift it more like a gasser than a diesel at the moment.

If I could piggyback tune it and get some more low end torque (say 1500-2200 rpm) I would be much happier.

The gear change indicator is pretty bad, it wants me to cruise in 6th at 80kph (50mph/below 1500 rpm ),but the engine seems to have problems keeping speed if there is any sort of incline.

Oh yeah, got it Tinted today 35% in the front, 20% in the back.... Some sort of ceramic infused tint.

In the spring, going to refinish those peeling and corroded winter alloys... Probably going to go with a graphite (dark grey). New center caps ordered on eBay yesterday.
