Driven normally there absolutely no way of telling. Still smooth and flexible, pulling well from say 1300rpm.
Wider throttle and at around 3 to 3.5k rpm it's a different car. No point red lining it, as with most "normal" petrol turbo engines it's time to change up at 5.5k rpm max.
I have a little test to compare cars. I roll past a road sign at 24 to 25mph in second and floor it. Then at another road sign, maybe 600 metres I see what speed it's doing. After the map, even on this short run it's around plus 10mph. I wasn't expecting wheel spin in second, in the dry!!
It's got around 200Nm of torque (allegedly, and I won't be stressing it by putting it on a rolling road). Any more torque, imho wouldn't be good, for the drive train or the handling.
Celtic claim they know all the manufactures trick for detecting if the ecu has been altered. If you want they'll return it to its original settings for free. They download your existing ecu map before they upload theirs.

I would like to, but financially not viable for me. I have explored this. Plus with a loaded TSI, I would want to spec the GTI too adding to the price. Maybe in 18 months if they are still making them.

Nope
Wait for it to built.
Pay £4.5k more.
I like sleeper cars.
And it's not exactly hard work:
Text the guy.
He comes to me.
We chew the fat for 20 minutes about his 680bhp V10 RS6 and it's done

I've collected my as new ex demo Tsi high up this afternoon. It was registered only two weeks ago by the dealer and has 52 miles on the clock. I configured it on the VW website and its total cost was £13500. I paid £11000 which was is a fair saving. Brilliant car in deep pearl black and love it to bits. I traded in my 60bhp move Up and the extra power is superb.

Congratulations Dave - a lovely car. Welcome to the TSI side, sorry if the test drive in mine cost you financially... Wink
