    The gains are quite minimal and most owners don't bother. But for further info from possibly the best in the UK is Ricky at RE Performance in Swindon. [email protected]

    I had a German Motoring (now defunct I think) ECU/TCU installed a few years ago, at the time it claimed 30HP gain, the only real gain I could feel was in the TCU tune which sorted out the R-Tronic. As Trev said, if there's a worthwhile tune available Ricky is the man to ask.

    I've done considerable research on an ECU tune for the V8 and unless you plan on changing out the exhaust system and airbox configuration for better breathing it's not really worth it as a stand-alone mod.

    IMO, get the pedal box +. Increases sensitivity with throttle telepathy and doesn't mess with or potentially compromise the ECU.

    Go for a carbon clean and you will get more bhp (back) for your buck

    I've heard rave reviews on pedal boxes from my customers. Anything from a GTI to an R8. There is no power to be had with one but it definitely makes the accelerator FEEL much much better. Otherwise, start with bolt ons like the Eurowise intake or an exhaust. PM me if you have any questions!
