    Thumbs Up De-tune the VXR



    I always found the VXR as standard to have somewhat of an eratic power delivery, even with the sports button off it was difficult to drive smoothly.

    It turns out now that the Mk5 EDS Stage I map actually smooths the power delivery, and detunes the off sports mode somewhat. It drops the boost levels which increases MPG - fuel consumption was high in the VXR anyways - and has made the throttle much much more progressive.

    Obviously with the sports button on all hell breaks loose and its back to mental mode

    Just thought i would share the fact that detuning sometimes is worthwhile
