So this is my first post and I'm already going to make a rookie mistake: anyone have recommendations on where to get the APR stage 1 tune around Sacramento? I talked to 2bennett today but I wanted to get input from people who've already had the tune done. (I was trying to search the old thread for info but my search tool wasn't working and I didn't want to dig through 158 pages. Sorry). Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

I purchased the fully loaded tune from 2bennett earlier this year. I dig their customer service and how they go out of thier way to explain everything to you. I was APR staged 1 up til about a few weeks ago where im now apr stage2 .

Its a must, the car feels great up top and you wont regret it . I own my own shop, but i like 2bennett and how they perform business so i use them to deal with the tunes on this car.

Is it a big difference in pull? I've been thinking of pulling the trigger, but everyone says its not that big of a upgrade.

I just moved to sac from ct. Noticed some sort of putter when I accelerate harder. Noticed it in denver passing a rig at high altitude. Thought it was the intake struggling with thinner air, but it has happened a couple more times after that. I'm unitronic stg 2 and I'm due for an oil change. Anyone have a problem like this? I read it might be the coils or something? I'm a newbie so I'm pretty lost. Don't wanna bring it to a mechanic yet.

clean your maf and see if that changes anything ... if you have an aftermarket intake and its an oil filter you could over oil your filter and clog your maf or its just dirty from so many miles.. or could be spark plugs or as you said coil packs

installed the motor mount and transmission mount so worth every penny makes dsg shifts smooth. on acceleration theres no lift in the front end. car feels much more solid as if you reinforced the frame or something ... vibrations are not bad at all had this on for a couple days now hardly even notice it! great mod worth the money!
