Well its been a busy couple weeks...ok..week...whew!!
We got momma her new to us Jetta GLI..think GTI sport only a sedan...leather...loaded..factory performance suspension and turbo 2.0....
And its fast..
I threatened to take it to work so I could drive a fast car again..
Momma teased me and said no...
I ordered the TC 6 position tuner...muhahaha (more like toddler yelling *my fast toy*)
It came in today and I got it installed..the van ECU bolts wouldn't come loose so I had to pull it from the inside...what a night mare!! 10 min job took an hour..and I had to pull the driver seat outta the way (glad they are on quick disconnect spin bases)
Here's the review....my youngest son came with me (hes my garage buddy)
Tunes r stock ,50,75,100,140hp 75hp is supposed to be the economy tune..
50 hp took that little bit I wanted and gave it too me..she felt like it has 3:73 ratio not the 3:29 (highway gears so hills it slows down..)..bishop noticed no difference..
75hp..felt like the ecodiesel did after her tuner (which was 300hp..van is 240+75 is 310hp...makes sense)....bishop said it felt better...agrees it feels like the ecosiesel
100hp...well well...HELLOOOO....getting too dark to really enjoy that...but probably gonna be my setting when on the freeway in a hurry...Bishop held on and commented it was really fast and almost too fast for being a van...had to turn the light bar on so we could see where we were gonna be in a second..
20-80 in about 1.5 seconds....bishops phone slid UP the chair and was under his butt and he howled with EXCITEMENT..I ran out of headlight/light bar and high beam..and just HELD ON FOR THE RIDE!!!!
The 140hp setting is too fast....I love it...
She does a pretty good puff of smoke on 140 when I put it to the floor...the turbo spools the engine gets QUIETER?? and she goes like a bat outta hell...
I did see an EGT of 1140 near the end of one 140 pull.....flat ground....so definitely no towing with that...other temps were about average or lower...but only a 8 mile run thru hilly 2 lane..
