    Unitronic Stage 2 A3 TSI with downpipe and full intake...cai, turbo muffler delete. top. intercooler, and tbp. When getting on it, around 2800rpms, i get a brief but significant drop in power. Enough that it makes you jerk forward. Its not a miss or a stutter or even a stumble, its like the engine just totally stops producing power for a brief moment and starts again. Pulls hard down low and through redline otherwise. New OEM plugs and R8 coils. Anyone ever experience this? I have vcds lite, any recommendations on what to monitor?

    For posterity, it looks like spark plug gap was the problem. Some tune manufactures recommend bringing it down because higher boost can literally blow out the spark if the gap is too much. 0.32 was too much for mine, bringing it down to 0.26ish seems to have really helped.
