      I dunno...

      I think is too expensive, IMHO anyway.
      Again, I'd get the daytime's rather than this at that price.

      Did he confirm for your exact engine/tranny combo? I have called them every time they make an announcement and have been told that its still not ready for the TTS specifically. If it is, I would highly recommend it based on friends who have it on their A3's A4's and VWs etc. Its a brilliant bit of software thats undeniable. Do it Aleic

      Hi Aleic,



      It is good to hear from you!



      Yes, we finally have a DSG flash for your car!



      It doesn’t matter which brand of ECU flash that you have as long as we know what your red line is. You can either have your red line raised by your tuner to 7200 or we can make our shift point slightly lower than the redline you have now.



      We also no longer have to be on site to perform the flash, we can ship you the DSG dongle in order to do the flash yourself!



      If you’d like to take advantage of our current sale you just need to pre-pay for the flash before the 22nd of December.



      Please click here for pricing: http://www.hpamotorsport.com/holidayspcl2010.htm



      If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask!





      Kind regards,



      Nik Brkich

      Guys, not only is it available for the TTS, the flash tool is on its way to me as I write this. I should have it in my hand by Monday and assuming all goes according to plan, I'll be enjoying faster shifting, putting more consistant power to the road and knowing what dam gear I'm in all the time as of Tuesday.

      BTW, Nik is no longer with them (I think I may have been told he joined the police force or RCMP).

      I just called them, as well and Marcel confirmed that it is indeed available for the TTS! This is exciting, and Steve I can't wait to hear your feedback. I'd love to have better control over the power in this car now so this seems like a great mod. Two thumbs way up

      I assume you guys want a DSG flash because your ECU tune is supposedly limited because of the DSG?

      What tune do you have?

      There are times when it feels like there's less power than other times which I understand is from the DSG limiting power. My setup is shown in my sig (equivalent of Stage II).

      Ok, just that my tune doesn't seem to have any flat spots where the DSG is limiting the power.

      I would definitely like to hear more about this as well. From the thread so far, I take that the HPA flash is totally separate from and compliments APR, GIAC, etc??

      I didnt recognize any either until I moved from stage I to stage II. Also, I cant pinpoint a specific gear or rev range as the "lack of consistant power" occurrs once in a while. Unfortunately, winter road conditions makes it tough to nail anything down ...

      ECU flashes are unrelated to DSG flashes. One of the benefits of a DSG flash is that the DSG is "tuned" to allow more power. Here's a portion of HPA's info cut from their website:

      Torque Limit Increase:
      Working in conjunction with our progressive shift configuration, we have increased the DSG Gearbox’s ability to transmit torque from 350nm up to 500nm while still ensuring the stability and capability of all the mechanical moving hardware within the DSG gearbox. With an HPA performance program, The DSG computer will no longer initiate steps to shed engine torque when the factory 350nm limit is reached which unleashes the true benefits of any engine modifications.

      My tune doesn't "initiate steps to shed engine torque", so not sure this would actually do anything...

      As a stage 3 I do see the benefit of getting more TQ out of every gear, and to me, the premise of this DSG tune is that it gets me another step closer to the kind of control i'd expect from a manual shift car. I've decided that based on the benefits that are clearly outlined on the HPA site, I just placed my order for the Stage 3 DSG tune. Which means that Project TTS/SF is going into one or perhaps two webisodes of overtime...

      Since it's for the team, you have to let each of us have your car for a month each. It's the only fair way for us to feel what you took for the team!!!

      I will pm my address for motor delivery :-)
