    That's looking good mate. The red top R8 coils really suit the engine bay also.

    Will be looking to do coils on mine soon. Just had plugs done on mine, mechanic says most likely was the first plug change it's ever had at 118,000km and it's running so much smoother now down low & at idle.

    Hey Sharkie, any idea what boost levels we run on the stage 1 APR tune? I'm running the ODB Fusion app and seeing up to 18psi max but unsure if this is correct as it seems high.

    That sounds about right as per my old Mk6 GTI (same engine). It was around 18-19psi on stage 1.

    Thanks mate! The app I'm using requires me to key in a volumetric efficiency % for my engine to give an accurate on the fly boost reading and at 120% it seems to be about spot on then.

    Yeah, about 18-19PSI is my understanding too for Stg1. I will confirm this soon as I have a boost tap connector on the way.

    Another popular GTI/R mod for the 2.0 TSI (Turbio Muffler delete) also made me think about doing it to the Amarok. Essentially the same engine other than a different exhaust cam and a better flowing OEM downpipe, this should be a straightforward bolt off bolt on mod ... Except the stock muffler outlet on the turbo, due to its location, is different it has bend in it

    Easy fix though with a 90deg silicone bend and small connector to the OEM intercooler pipe,

    Sharkie I believe you purchased a muffer delete to suit the Gen 3 EA888 engine. I have fitted a muffler delete to both my Mk7 GTI and my previous car, a Mk6 GTI. The Mk6 GTI one came with a bend (as per this link) https://www.vagcafe.com/product/forg...l-turbo-ea888/ whereas the Mk7 one is shorter and straight (as per your 2nd pic above).

    Doesnt matter if you got it to fit though.

    It's the exact same metal delete pipe as your kit, Lucas, the 1 I bought just didn't come with the silicone bend. Easy fix by making our own though.

    It is also identical to the 1 I fitted to the R which is weird as the turbos are very different, yet that muffler is identical ....

    Minor but noticeable improvement in responsiveness. Either of those will work, the Forge kit just comes with a silicone bend, you'd still need to connect the bend to the OEM intercooler pipe (which is rubber) so a 2" connector will be needed as well.

    Piping from the turbo to the intercooler is totally different on the Amarok due to the positioning of the turbo in relation to intercooler.

    Incidentally ...

    What I do notice more these days is power delivery differences between my cars, the 1.4TSI actually has a bit of lag before boost builds, then it comes in with a massive rush, the Amarok has less lag (and now even a little bit less after this mod) but a more linear power delivery that feels muscular all the time but without that rush (almost like a big NA car) whilst the R is just near instant massive power with quite a bit of rush at the top too. IE's tune on the R (still Stg1 but the high torque version) is brilliant. And then the V8 ..... nothing touches that above 4000rmin, its 4th gear wheelspin time whilst already moving , downright scary car to drive. And then I climb in the Up! and have no power at all, just ridiculous corner speeds, it probably outcorners the R ..... power fix for it is almost ready though.
