upgraded to VT2 600 (6,5psi)

Just got my ECU back from ESS and received my new pulley and belt;

The new software is very smooth, idling sounds completely OEM.

Now for the power jump

Boost went up from 5,5 psi to 6,5psi

Wow, the car is completely ridiculous!! Driving it is bordering on unsafe LOL

Wheels spin 1-3, and you really have to be wide awake as the ass is all over the place even when you short shift!! Check out this video, I was filming with left hand while trying to keep her straight!!

I was in traffic, so could only manage up to 3rd gear into 4th before I had to slow down:



The second video is playback mode of the Defi gauges.

You can see the max boost is 0,45 bar and then it spikes on the gear shift up to 0,5 bar

Congrats Bob .
what did you do In regards to the dct software ?
Also do you have cats in the car ? Try removing those then you'll experience a dbl whammy on the power !! Good 20whp.

Not to burst your bubble but my 7.5 lbs upgrade will be here WED ...... Gotta love this stuff

Still don't have DCT software but all is perfect. Don't notice any difference with extra grunt. I am running a smaller belt and 88mm pulley (good for 8,5psi at sea level)
Making 0,45 bar (6,5psi)
I still have akra evolution but I want noise levels to stay low as possible.

I would buy the akra catless XPipe if it didn't make it louder

I have the dinan xpipe and it has for resonators which helps alot w/ eisenman sport ( which I'm not to thrilled about ).
It's looks like ESS is comming out with their own line of xpipes ( catless) once they release it I'm jumping on one and might change out the eisenman with somthing else too.

I'm guessing you only need the DCT software if your tracking it hard , you should be fine
The scary part with the VT600 is when banging 4th 5th & 6th shit gets hairy in those gears.......

30 liters 95RON costs me $40
20 liter drum of 104 RON sunoco costs me $75

If you want octane booted try liquid moly which is around $25

If you want octane
So that's $115 per tank for me
