hmm! Xman makes very good stout turbos. I have his 52mm billet impeller CR170 turbo. 120k miles on the turbo, impeller looks new and no shaft play at all. I will contact darkside for the injectors as one of them is leaking as my car starts up with white puff of smoke for a while now.

What did I do today... installed my new Q revision RNS-510 into the 2013 JSW, and mom got my old D revision RNS-510 in her 2014 Beetle TDI.

Old:

Injectors from darkside, and turbo from Malone. Wish I would have gotten the turbo from darkside. Coulda run more boost.
Now if only the person who's doing my ALH tunes did common rail tunes. I have a Malone Stage 3 on my car, but I feel like customer service has gone downhill, and I wasn't really looking to spend $2200 for a K-Tag slave tool to reflash three cars.

Well, otherwise it's 200 for the flaxh tool from the tuner. For each one. All the mk6. The vin is written to it. So it's one car only.

To the flash tool yes, but not to the tune itself, which is merely a bunch of values that are obviously different than stock.

I was told I needed the Kess, because I needed to retune mom's mk7 as well. Who knows. But I wasn't really looking to spend $600 for 3 tools to tune 3 cars.

Can also use ktag to tune the trans. And sell it after.

I'd probably opt for the Chinese version, as I don't have $2200 to spend on a k-tag, let alone a slave version that's only tied to Malone.
best to find a malone tuner nearby..... looked it up on their website of Malone,

MK7? no way. I spoke to Malone tuning a while ago, they said DSG tuning is done by OBD2 port for 2015 TDI's that would apply to MK7's and my B7 Passat. for 2009-14's has to be done by KESSY.
