    So it appears I bought Hicks Arteon. On purchasing he recommended to me to delete the exhaust mods and revert to factory because of the drone. In the end he did it for me prior to me purchasing. He did commute Central Coast to Sydney daily so maybe the exhaust didn't suit highway cruising.
    For the record, I'm looking at APR tune too now. About to do my first service on her and get the once over from my mechanic, and see what we end up doing.

    Over the last few months a number of mods have been done to my car, each time I have run it on the dyno to measure the hoped for improvements.
    2019 Arteon,
    APR stage 1 high torque tune,
    APR ignition coils
    Denso IKH24 spark plugs
    TVS stage 2+ DSG tune,
    MST TIP and hose,
    R600 air intake,
    Revo charge pipe set.

    158 AWkW, unmodified, not shown, all runs on the same dyno.

    So, the two dyno sheets show the improvements,
    201.5 AWkW, APR stage 1, modified standard air box and K&N filter, CTS cast TIP
    209.3 AWkW, MST TIP and hose, modified snorkel
    210.1 AWkW, R600 intake
    212.9 AWkW, Revo charge pipe set

    A few things that don't show up on the dyno, R600 intake, big improvement on turbo response, and same for Revo charge pipe set.
    Car is so much more responsive now with those two changes.
    Also included turbo boost for dyno runs, (and gratuitous car on dyno pic)

    Hope this info is of some use to anyone looking to mod their EA888 Gen3 motor.

    They are just bolt on bits, so i did it myself.
    The APR tune was done before the new pricing which is quite a bit cheaper, I think it was about $1400.

    Next thing is to do some 0 -100 times with a Dragy, see how it goes.
