2013 Passat TDI SE DSG, CR140 Stage 1.5 with DSG Tune
Love the extra torque and the DSG shifting now. Loads more scoot off the line and passing on the highway is downright quick. This is the way this car should have been from the factory.
Special mention to Charles of CR Performance in Peoria, IL. Outstanding service and even came to me in Chicago to do the tune. Highly recommended for any of your needs.
I own a 2011 Jetta TDI. Always got good fuel economy and loved the power of the car, but I knew the car had a whole lot more potential than that. I researched, learned that a dpf/egr removal/tune would be the best mod. I searched for certified Malone tuners around my area and found CR performance. I then learned they were a full shop and could do all of the work necessary. I contacted CR, and they were very quick to respond to all e-mails. Very helpful and resourceful. I then set up an appointment, and the work was done in no time. After I got the car it was obvious that my stock Jetta was gone. I had received a completely new car. Fuel economy jumped up from 42-48 mpg right out of the shop (and thats with 18" CC wheels). The power was phenomenal. Passing is a joy with this car. A lot of the cars that would beat me in a race, now are left in the dust (although its not a car meant for racing). It's incredible how different this car is now. It is much quicker, more enjoyble, more fuel efficient, and just all around cooler. This is definitely the car VW engineers wanted to build and should have come from the showroom.
Working with CR performance was great.They are very knowledgeable people. It was a very enjoyable experience working with CR and I invite every single Jetta TDI owner to perform this work to their vehicles at CR even if you dont live close by. You will not be dissapointed.
I couldn't be more happier over the increase in performance and throttle response, the increase in low end power. Charles was very professional thought the entire process and the communication before and after the work was first class. I can't say enough of the tune and work completed but would like to add more for the shop and old school customer service. 2 thumbs and 2 toes for the CR team!
I talked to Charles of crperformance and we decided that the 1.5 would be best for the time being. I was more than impressed to do business with Charles. Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Driving my tdi now is a completely different driving experience. Would most definitely recommend to other Tdi owners near and far. Thank you Malone tuning and Charles at CRPerformance.
I just had my 3rd timing belt, water pump and idlers replaced at Digisports. My bug has had nothing but minor maintenance since new. I had Brian do the stage 1 tune at 270,000 miles. I now have driven over 10,000 miles on the tune with no problems. This is the way VW should have done it. I still get better than 42mpg overall with most of my driving between 65 and 80. I put over 100 miles a day with about 90% highway. I am looking forward to stepping up to the stage 3 tune with clutch and injectors when she reaches 350,000 miles. No regrets, great response with no noticeable smoke or dead spots.
