      Looks good. I looked into stand alone but there's issues with direct injection. I'm curious to see your thoughts on how it runs vs the stock ECU.

Not that I predict you doing that - more so just for my own curiosity.
      The Black is surprisingly feature packed for the price. Every data stream that should, has safe guards. For example, if fuel pressure drops below a specified safe point, I have a number of strategies. From pulling boost, to limiting RPM, and even a complete shut down.

      In the near future the black will have support options. Thatís the cool part, always updating.

      Quick update.

      EMU black plugged in, base map loaded, DSG setting entered. It runs and shifts, complete plug and play!

      When I get everything permanently mounted, Iíll get some pics and better info.

      I need to retract part of my previous statement, it is not plug and play. Itís close, but I donít want people reading this in the future and thinking itís easy.

      The MK4 R32 uses Bosch 4.2 wideband, the MK5 R32 based 8P uses the newer 4.9. The PNP kit EMU offers is for the MK4. Both sensors have 6 pins, but are wired differently. All thatís needed is moving some pins around.

      Also, the MK4 uses a fan control module. The MK5 does not, it is ECU controlled. Very easily wired and controlled by the Black, but not PNP.

      So please donít think this is a plug and go type deal.

      Awesome. Car sounds great in the clip as well. The ECU was primarily to make the turbo upgrade work, right?

      I think there are few noises better than a turbo VR6.

      Both 034 and UM have great files for my car. So I could have used the of the shelf stuff. This was more for the future, my car will constantly change, now Iím not bound by the tuning. Also Ive wanted to get into tuning, this is my way of learning.

      Nice. I plan to do another tune myself; I've thought about going with eurodyne for the same reason, but I'm also scared I'll mess something up.

      Looks good. I think I remember you saying you're in SD, right? That apartment complex looks like one I used to live in a long time ago in San Marcos. If it is, small world.

      Anyway, car is legit, how do you like the power?
