I just finished a huge project/rebuild. Timing belt, tensioners, accessory belt, flap delete, HPFP IE internals, Evolution Motorsports Intake, Golf R intercooler, 34 Draft Designs Catch can, CTS throttle pipe, ECS 3" catted downpipe, Billy Boat 3" exhaust, CV boots (all of them), suspension and springs, sway bars, and other misc things.

So I am sure I am going to want a tune. I was thinking of Eurodyne and get their Maestro tuning suite but not 100% sure. Honestly I am not really wanting to do much more than put a tune on this car and call it good. Looking for maximum performance/fuel economy. 91 octane is all I have available where I live and really no tuning shops so to speak.

Recommendations? Thoughts?

Since you have the HPFP upgrade...do a stage 2+ tune. Or if a tuner has what they call a stage 2 and it requires the HPFP upgrade...then do stage 2, LOL.

Were you thinking Eurodyne so to have the ability to load yourself rather than a long drive to a tuner Dealer?
I believe Unitronic and maybe REVO have self loaders.

Unitronic has UniCONNECT+ ; https://www.getunitronic.com/ecu-tuning/Volkswagen-Golf-GTI-2-0-TFSI-2006-2008-200hp-stage1

Exactly....I mean on my previous MK 6 I went to Dynocomp, but for this one I was just trying to do things myself. I mean no it's not a long drive to PHX from Flagstaff, but would rather do from the comfort of my garage since I am trying for canned tune.

Yes, then Unitronic stage "2-HPFP or 2+" and Eurodyne stage 2 have a base tune you load yourself. I am still unaware of how REVO loads initailly. You could contact one of the REVO dealers to get answers. I am also unaware if GIAC and APR have developed self-loading options for the MK5.
