    Oh wow. I think the weight difference might make a bigger improvement over the increased rev limit. But the tcu tune would be easier to do.

But seems everyone that has sputter is a b8.5 dsg to my knowledge.

    Ps: how well is the zf holding up? I loved the idea of the dsg when I bought the car. Was the reason I got it in the first place. Have you raced a dsg car with similar mods? Would be curious of outcome.

    Yes the pool is small I'm assuming. I run full. Dsg. No sputtering. If the alcohol gets anywhere above 85, I'll throw lean. Wonder if there are any B8.5's that are having zero issues?

    I think I am going to switch to 93 stage 1 from E85 stage 1 so I am not locked to gas stations for a road trip. What's the process to do this? Will I notice anything weird? What's the latest 93 stage 1?

    Thanks,

    Matthew

    I'm curious about this "adapt process" for the TCU tune as well. I flashed the TCU tune along with the ECU tune exactly as Chris instructed and haven't had any issues. However, now I'm curious if I missed a step to eek out some even better performance.

    First time tuner,and all I can say is that EPL's stage 1,91 octane tune is amazing. Feels like a different car im driving.
    Flashed yesterday and already feel the difference!!

    I can also confirm that:

    I'm having sporadic sputter on the newer update, even after reflash
    It doesn't show anything in the logs
    I have a DSG
    I just made the realization that it sounds like the DSG farting (So a fuel-cut like sound)
    DP 93 with anywhere between 0-3 gallons of E85 it does it

    Pulling some more logs, but it really seems like a DSG only issue that doesn't show anything in logs. No misfire, no knock, slight fuel rail pressure drop...and that's all.

    Anyone try another tune on the DSG to see if it goes away?

    For the most part just have a mixed driving style for 30-40 miles. Steady throttle, the odd step down and a few hard kick downs to really get it moving is what i did for the most part.

    The down low power is definitely noticeable now and the throttle response is much better. Its only been a few days since i have been flashed so looking forward to seeing what this thing can really do this weekend.

    I've noticed this too. Driving in D drives like it is S mode now. I love it.

    Il be even more thrilled if i notice more power in a few days. Unfortunately i dont have any way to measure any of this..its all in the "feel"
    So far no issues,my guess is since i have only the ECU tune due to the 6MT

    I think your corn is better than mine.

    Did a pull on a very long freeway on ramp yesterday. Got intermittent sputter in the high rpm range and then cel. Po171 or something like that. Cyl bank lean.

    Would a failing cat cause that? Out of curiosity I was monitoring my o2 secondaries on torque app and either they're out of phase or one of my cats just went bad.

    I posted this originally in the "Questions you thought you were too stupid to ask..." thread but thought it might be relevant here, too.
    Disclaimer - My intent is not to call into question anything about the EPL tune, but since my car has the EPL Stage 1 tune I am looking for input from other owners.

    Past few months I've been noticing what I perceive to be delayed throttle activity, where there is some 'dead' travel in the accelerator pedal before the engine speed increases. I have noticed this is Comfort, Auto and Dynamic modes and the car is 6MT with the following engine/drivetrain modifications: EPL Stage 1 tune, ECS Luft-Technik intake, AWE Touring exhaust system, USP stainless steel clutch line (delay valve delete). I cannot prove it scientifically, but the butt dyno indicates that throttle response used to occur without any dead movement of the pedal, especially in Dynamic mode. The result is jerky starts from rest in 1st gear, and poorly timed shifts while driving. I swear the car feels relatively sluggish, too, but of course I cannot prove that.

    Anyone have any ideas what could be causing it and/or suggest the most logical order of un-modifying the car to see which (if any) of the above mods are contributing to the issue? My current train of thought is to flash back to stock and see if that makes a difference. If not, then swap the stock airbox back in.

    Might be as simple as a Throttle Body Alignment and hopefully not a cleaning. If you flash the tuned file again after the flash is complete and the OK button pops up turn the car off and count to 10 or 20 before starting the car and it allows the car to do a full TB alignment. And new set of Spark plugs gapped to .026" would not hurt either. These cars are going through plugs sooner than the Audi OEM recommended changes as well.

    Thanks for your quick feedback. I will follow your recommendation on re-flashing and letting the TB align, and will report back.
    I should have added that the car has 34500 miles so that is approaching the Audi recommended replacement interval. I think that's a DIY job that I could handle. Do you have any recommendations for brand/type of spark plugs for optimal performance with your tune?

    It's not the DSG. If your car ran fine on the last file, Chris/Tony can make it available to you again.

    It's the same tune that I've had from the start. I reflashed it, gave it more time between pressing OK then starting it, and it seemed to not sputter. I think that was a coincidence, as some days are worse than others.

    I haven't had a chance to pull good logs yet but the crappy logs show all the usual.

    It just sounds like the ECU intervening since it's perfectly rythmic and not necessarily in line with revs. I'll get a video at some point unless it goes away again.

    Just installed my pulley and flashed the stage 2 tune on Sunday.

    Logged about 80 miles since and I've noticed my idle is slightly rougher than it was with the stage 1.

    Anyone else noticed this after moving to stage 2?

    You'll get more sputter on days that the air is cooler/denser, that's why you notice it sometimes and other times don't. Logs won't show anything, needs direct memory access to see it. Has to do with when the injectors open (not how long they open).

    Do we know the injector duty cycle? For the guys that are e85 dual pulley, how close are we to the limit of what the injectors can handle?

    So you're saying that this is normal due to the dense air or is it problematic?

    I'm pulling my plugs this Sunday to check the gaps. Would the denser air cause spark blow-out?

    I'm pulling my plugs this Sunday to check the gaps. Would the denser air cause spark blow-out?
    Not normal, shouldn't happen. Literally nothing you can do to fix it unless you've logged and shown it to be a misfire.

    If it's the sputter the rest of us get, Tony will need to tweak the tune for you.

    Just added 3gal of E85 with my normal 1/4 tank fill up. Damn feeeeeel the difference, I'm liking this. So much more responsive and smoother. Just have to add the Ethanol Content Analyzer to my P# gauge and I'll be good to go.

    I'll do my best but no matter how many times I've logged and made it sputt- no misfires.

    It's only when going into accel in only a section of the rev range. It just so happens to be the prime fun rev range.

    Yeah, I've been pleasantly surprised with the difference 3gal E85 makes with the EPL tune as well. Especially with the 90+ degree heat we've been dealing with here. Chris told me I could use the 93 tune with a 3gal E85 mix (only have 91 octane here in CO). However, I opted to stick with the 91 tune and give the car a little more headroom with the extra octane, rather than trying to eek out a little more power.

    I have this exact issue with my GIAC DP tune. Around 4k if i get on it, it sputters a second or two before it starts to pull. Like above, it happens more when its cooler out. So annoying because thats the range i usually downshift to to accelerate. I've logged a million times and everything looks fine. I just had one of my cats replaced, so audi did the file update to address the cat issue which gave me a new stock file and GIAC seems to think their DP for the box code will fix my issue. We shall see.

    Haha yep 4k in 3rd or 4th gear is the prime spot for sputter. Keep us posted.

    So it's not just EPL? I wonder if APR does too...

    Dozer, did you get yours to go away completely with whatever adjustment Tony made?

    The 93 update worked for me. The E85 update helped but it still sucks enough where I'm not using it.
