Hi All,

Can anyone recommend a mapper for my 2.8? I’ve contacted Karl at Noobtune and he said he’s not sure if he can help me. I tried looking up JZW but the website looks like it’s been hacked. Are there any others that people have used that are decent? My car is stick apart from Hirsch performance upgrade but would like to get it on or above 300bhp.

Don’t know why the search function on this site is so tricky to use.

Nate on here has been recommending Aura Tuning. I think they are also known as Sabre when tuning other makes.

Worth noting if you car is a manual, anything over 300bhp will leave you wanting a clutch pretty quickly, and it will have to be uprated.

I have a Nordic map on my 2.8T and it's excellent, no complaints at all.

Thanks for the reply’s,

Had a look at Aura and they alright. I do have a manual so I’m not really sure if I can be bothered getting a new cloth tho. Getting the car dyno’d at the end of this month so will see what she’s packing and go from there.

Go for a medium tune then.
Maptun Stage 1 will not ruin your clutch and has impeccable manners
You’ll see close to 300bhp and circa 470nm

If you’re putting your standard car on the rollers I reckon you’ll see 240 Bhp and 375Nm

Aura can dial the torque back to keep the clutch alive. For how long depends on your right foot.

Had a chat with Aura, a new actuator and 340 bhp would be nice, pretty reasonable to. Will have to wait until next month as I’ve got to tax and insure her at the end of the month, doh!!!

I'll be fitting a new clutch in the next month so you can have my old one if you want to send one off to CG to have relined to take more torque (paddle one side, organic the other). They say it'll take 550Nm or so.
