    sure is, i looked again, it is an MT, lol. i wasn't paying attention when i first watched. Shit, lol. i wonder if the RS had the cover taken off the IC. and if it heated up up top. they are partially covered from the factory

    The Golf R is a MT not a DSG. If it was a DSG with launch control and no boost lost between shifts the R would have won. RS is still a bad ass hatch though!

    Gotcha. Thought I had read that somewhere and saw no long flashes when changing between LPG and BLM by gear.

    MHD copies the standard load table into the LPG table at flash time if the LPG table is empty and the logic still uses the LPG table. Once LPG has been used once, that logic is always used unless you flash back to stock.

    I just replaced bank 1 sensor 2 and STILL have the faulty heater fault on both. What other causes are there, where are the wires if I open the dme box and look for damage?

    I only used boost limit multiplier per gear in the beginning and the issue was there. I have started using a combination of both which has helped. There is no harm with using both. Martial has confirmed. BLM caps boost without scaling the throttle so after that boost has been reached, the accelerator pedal does nothing past that point. Load target scales the lower load throughout the throttle. I will be using both to get a happy medium between the two. More useable accelerator pedal travel in 1st than what BLMPG usually has will be handy when a little wheelspin does occur or any other reason to have a bit of finer control over power output in 1st. Using a little lower load target in 1st is no different to those that have that lower load target in all gears.

    Just for the record, mine were always separate, so Twisted might be on to something. I messed with LPG once or twice, but since then, they've not been set for limiting, they match my standard load target tables. When I went to BLM by gear, I zeroed out the LPG breaks/z-cells altogether and used the standard load target tables.

    Sticky, LOL looks like that's not a problem :) TwistedTuning, can you confirm there is anything specifically available in a pro-tune busa or did they just fold it in to all IA80S/IJE0S ATR releases at some point? No question I didn't purchase anything from Cobb, had 1.28 limit on IKC0S/INA0S, downloaded IJE0S ATR, raised ceiling and requesting 20psi+ targets just like that. Wondering if that's why my shifts went to hell on it (different checksums, other table limits on a pro RaceCode map?). It's more out of my own curiosity at this point, I'll never use IJE0S it again :D

    Color us a bit skeptical here as the gains are huge. The dyno was done at Cobb Socal though and Cobb certainly is reputable but what role they played in these dyno runs and how IPD is marketing them is unknown. Gains of 70 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels at 4300 rpm from a plenum and Y-pipe? From the looks of these dynos (and why the hell are the graphs so small? Seriously, what's the point of providing graphs people can't even read?) the gains all come in the mid-range with the plenum and Y-Pipe. Let's look at the plenum alone: There is a jump of 55 lb-ft of torque at 4300 rpm which fades quickly. You see an increase for a few hundred RPM. Now, that's good if true but hardly broad. Now look at the plenum with the Y-pipe: 70 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels over stock at 4300 rpm. You see gains basically from 3800-5200. The Y-pipe does provide a slightly better curve but it's really just that mid-section where the majority of the gains come from. Is it a Porsche intake defect? What is the explanation here? We definitely want to see independent testing that verifies these claims. Not to mention, graphs that are readable. IPD took delivery of its 991.2 Turbo S and the R & D started the second it arrived at its new home. The new Turbo doesnít substantially benefit from any one particular upgrade, but the sum of its improvements deliver a superior overall Turbo compared to the already impressive 991.1 Turbo it replaces. Yes, we know the latest Turbo is faster with 20 more horsepower but itís the combination of lightening shifts, razor sharp handling and spiritual connection to the vehicle that elevates the driving experience of the extraordinary new 991.2 Turbo. Porsche made a number of substantial upgrades with the latest 991.2 Turbo. Engine improvements include revised intake ports, larger injectors, higher volume fuel pump, larger turbo compressor wheels and more efficient intercoolers, but the factory intake system remained relatively unchanged allowing the IPD Plenum and Y-Pipe to fit with only minor modifications. The 991.2 Turbo Plenum upgrade delivers staggering engine power and torque gains that will raise the performance bar of the already potent supercar as well as the hairs on your neck. Horsepower gains are found throughout the entire power band with the bulk of the gains being realized between the 3500-5000 RPM range. Max power gains of 45+ wheel HP come in at 4300 RPM and hold strong all the way to redline. Torque is even more impressive at 60+ in the midrange with a massive torque gains from 3500-5000 RPM.

    Considering the RS is a manual and the R is a Auto, i can see the number being close at the end of the race. The golf R tho, power wise with mods and a tune max out around 360-370awhp. The RS has a lot more room for improvement. I love both cars, but am partial to the RS solely because i've been an RS fan since the 90's with the Cosworth Escort. Which im working on importing in the next year or two. Speaking of the RS, just signed on an RS shop/test mule earlier last week. so this is going to be fun. Hard parts and tunes coming soon, lol.

    Use one or the other guys. Manual transmission car can use Boost or Load limiter. AT/DCT need to use Boost limiter. You dont need to be using both at once. Im willing to bet your issue is that while using bother your load targets in gear are not lining up with you Boost targets in gear. So its causing an issue, kinda like bumping heads.

    I have the RACE code for Cobb. but im technically not allowed to release it to anyone. As its mainly for pro-tuners. With the race code on IJE0S and I8A0S you can effectively raise the boost ceiling to 1.55bar with the race code and read 22.5psi via the DME. OP best bet is, call or email Cobb and see if they will give it to you, switch to MHD or get a custom tune with Race Code. because i don't think any pro-tuner is going to give that out due to contracts and etc with Cobb. Anyone wanting info on the new software when they re-release i'll make a post about it when it happens. i don't see many changes happening. but they have been busy on a number of things. Just not BMW related.

    I haven't messed with either limiting table much, but noticed the same issue with LPG. I made a "U" shaped load pattern, so anything in normal driving RPM range was close/same gear to gear and it alleviated that unevenness between them for just driving. I messed with BLM by gear just once so far and had smooth targets, but was overshooting. I'll get around to adjusting the base that low at some point, but this is what my target looked like: http://www.datazap.me/u/rsl/v9a-blm-test-again?log=0&data=3-7-18-29-31&zoom=50-86

    yea i hear you man. Just have to do things right and pay attention when dealing with altitude and hot weather. I respect Singles, but most of my builds where possible (at least on 6 and 8 cylinder engines and up) i always prefer a properly setup twin turbo setup. I just enjoy the broad powerband of twins. So much so, i've been tossing the idea around in my head of a Compound twin setup on the N54. :awesome: But we will see how i feel power wise after the direct port nitrous kit is one running. And thanks for the interest. look forward to doing more and more on this platform.

    Thanks for the rep! I just finally listed my AP for sale after collecting dust for almost 9 months, but am now seriously tempted to keep it, take the class and get the new ATR just to see what's up. I don't want to derail this thread, but the info is on Cobb's site regarding the change for ATR for anyone interested.

    The Golf R has some real competition in the United States and it is from Ford no less. Unfortunately, the Focus RS was not sold in the USA previously and but the European got to enjoy it. Well, now in the USA you can buy a Focus RS or a Golf R and it's time to see which one rules. The Focus RS already beat out the world's best hot hatches in a huge comparison test earlier this year. It is not the fastest in a straight line but it is the quickest around the track and the best all around hatchback. What the Golf R really has going for it compared to the Focus RS is the DSG gearbox. The Golf R has the smaller 2.0 liter engine compared to the Ecoboost 2.3 liter motor and it is down roughly 50 horses. Can the dual clutch trans and a bit less weight make up for this power deficit? No. The Golf R does keep up quite well but the Focus RS requires a bit more skill to extract performance from. As this is Evo no trap speeds are provided which partially defeats the purpose of a drag race. Regardless, the Focus RS is not only more powerful and the quicker car it is also the better driver's car. It's just simply the better enthusiast choice.

    That just depends on the rom family, doesn't it? If you have IJE0S (and maybe I8A0S?), all you need to do is raise the boost ceiling higher than 1.28 in ATR AFAIK. The only time I messed with any rom that old, I flashed IJE0S_IS to my car (originally IKC0S_IS that definitely has a hard limit of 1.28), raised the boost ceiling in IJE0S_IS to 1.45 and had higher targets. I'm on DCT though, shifts immediately became crap. Shift lasted forever and could not get rid of the 4 limiter no matter what I tried. Might have better luck on AT/MT, but it was only good for a 1 gear pull for me, so ditched it pretty quickly. http://www.datazap.me/u/rsl/ije0sis-test-4?log=0&data=4-9-22 On a side note: ATR can no longer be downloaded(!), but Cobb is releasing a new "full featured" ATR by the end of Sept. (which is already postponed from this month)...and you have to pay an estimated $100-150 to take a class and pass it before you can download it :facepalm I'm guessing it's probably something that's about 2 hours long, the bulk of which will probably be spent talking about emissions and have to sign an affidavit at the end that you've been duly advised against altering anything that changes OEM emissions and release Cobb from any liability. I could be dead wrong and it might actually offer something to learn tuning-wise, but considering some forums go so far as filter "catless", seems to be the age we live in... I'll be extremely curious what the new ATR software includes, but wholly not expecting anything new for N54s.
