Hi Roan

To answer your question, yes. Do the Chett Tune.
If you towing then you should look at getting the EGT to stay down. It is something a lot of folk overlook.
You can go STi IC and that will help a little bit.
Porting the heads is a massive expense for very little gain.
If you still like the TD04 turbo then consider fitting a Water Methanol Injection System.
It will keep the EGT down and aid in the cooling by a long shot. Much more economical and more torque to be had.
We at Intent Performance can fit it for you prior to a visit to CHett.
PM me for details.

Tuning & Logging / Re: For the Noobs

Besides ebay then where can one find a tactrix cable?

As for the TCU, I've heard of tuners being able to fiddle with the ferocity/smoothness the box shifts at etc.
Best way forward is just to start logging and figure out why I'm getting hesitation on pulloff, random slight vibrations when standing still etc.

Only buy from them if you want one.
Or get a VAG cable to log.

Any help please.

1) Tactrix cable - I assume purchase online from ebay etc, any pitfalls, incompatabilities to look out for?
2) RomRaider and ECUFlash applications - anybody have a link saved somewhere or need I scour the internet for the apps?

I'm assuming with this setup I can get into the TCU (Transmission Control Unit) and alter parameters in there as well?
Tactrix will set you back R2800 maybe more. I would never buy it off eBay. If you just want to log then get a VAG cable. They like R300 off eBay and actually work.
Romraider you can download from the site and install. Same with ECUFlash.
No you cannot change anything in the TCU, what did you want to change?

Good news that you done.
You got a cable throttle right?
Could be a MAF thing.
Air cleaner new?
Have you actually logged anything to see if there is anything untoward?

Listen to our cars. If you like it we can fit it for you.

Consider water methanol Injection also as a performance and or safety upgrade.
