    Throttle Response on 2.0 after going APR Stage 2?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I was wondering what other people think about the throttle response with APR Stage 2. I had the software and APR downpipe installed about two weeks ago, and I feel like the throttle response is worse than before doing the upgrade. Throttle response in my 2015 allroad was never great, but it seems really soft now. I feel like I need to press the pedal down half way to get any real acceleration. Definitely pulls much harder than before once it is going. Just wanted to know how the experience has been for others.

    I have been driving variants of this engine for awhile, coming from two prior GTIs (APR tuned and stock).

    Something just isn't right. My throttle response is more responsive after going stage 2.

    Throttle responce will be better if you install the D.U.C.K.; APR should have them in stock.

    Ok--jokes on me. Don't know what d.u.c.k. stands for, but I assume it stands for something negative related to my stupidity. Thanks for the help. Keep these gems coming.

    The duck was a reference to the "pedal responce" thread; it died when sent to the chatterbox http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...pedal-responce

    Yeah-my question was not quite that generic--how do I get more power?
