Sometimes we may feel like one particular brand is better than the other with OTS software most of the times it’s the company’s decision of calibrating the file one way rather than another (there’s more than one way to do this), for example, we can test 2 maps from different companies on the exact same vehicle and like one a lot more than the other, yet the other could end up showing better Dyno peak numbers.

When custom tuning a vehicle, one customer could find a predetermine setting too aggressive while the other not enough, that’s why custom tuning is extremely convenient as the user is the one making the choices and decisions on how the overall feeling of their car should be instead of the calibrator, also we can achieve much better and safer numbers than any OTS maps as they are Taylor made for the specific hardware, condition and fueling of the vehicle and not a one size fits all.

**If you purchased a tune from us don’t change hardware without informing us as it could be very dangerous and makes both parties waste time.

There are certain limitations and risks associated with tuning that the customer must be aware of, there are some things that could be damaged from a bad calibration, for this we take extreme caution and work our way up to detect any lingering issue and prevent any premature component damage, we have been very successful in this approach even if it ends up taking a little more time to finish the tune, but we rather invest the time to protect your vehicle’s integrity and secure our results.

There are also issues that are not directly related to tuning but more related to driving styles and/or other hardware conditions, also a previous wrongly calibrated tune could have reduce the engine and it’s components tolerances, reliability and longevity considerably.

Example: You are running brakes that feel ok, yet when we add power and you do some spirited driving the discs warp or present some issue, Yes, the power addition from the tuning could have accelerated the wear or damage on the brake system but that’s not the responsibility of tuning process, same with suspensions, engine components, etc. Remember that you are adding power, sometimes 2-3 times over the stock output, that will bring the same addition of stress on the vehicle’s components.

*oil quality and overall health check prior to start the tuning process must be confirmed.
MQB recommended plugs
Brisk ER12S or ER10S gaped at 0.022” or tighter for higher boosted, E85 and/or methanol.
MK5-6 (ea113 and ea888 gen1 and gen2) plugs
NGK BKR8EIX gaped at 0.022” or tighter for higher boosted, E85 and/or methanol.
**ALL expenses such as but not limited to: Spark plugs, oil, fuel, methanol, tires, brakes, engine mounts or anything that the car requires, due to logging, testing or dyno requests are to be covered 100% by the customer.
Turbo size: Depends on the customer preferences one could think 3800rpm threshold is too much, another could say that it’s fine at 5500rpm.
Used parts: It’s rolling the dice, even on used parts that you’ve used yourself sometimes they could present some unseen deterioration specially if placed in storage for a period of time.
We STRONGLY recommend against buying used turbos or fueling components that haven’t been reconditioned or refurbished by a reputable company.
Aftermarket parts: Always follow our recommendations, if you are not willing or have a different idea please share it but we will give you the best advice possible from our experience to achieve your goals.
*MQB map boost tap is NOT recommended for this particular generation and we require removing this prior to the tuning process.
*JB4 or any other sensor enhancer must be completely removed not just “disabled” for the tuning process to be successfully completed.
Something important to consider regarding tuning.
If an issue forces us to stop with the tune experience and this takes a considerable amount of time, the tune will be considered finished and a revisit fee will be applied to continue or conclude the tune, this charge or exemption of it, is 100% at the discretion of Mabotech.

ALL information shared between us and customer, via WhatsApp, E-mails, Facebook or any other means of communication is saved and recorded for future reference and added security.

Importance of dyno: A dyno is a very useful tool to measure the progress of the tune/build, we usually recommend when starting a tune to mature it with street logs as it gives us a proper load and drag coefficient of the actual vehicle and after we reach a certain point get to the Dyno to wrap up the process.

*It is recommended that we have a baseline run on the same dyno to properly monitor our progress.

*All dyno related expenses are to be cover 100% by the customer.

-Tips to get better quarter miles.

– Practice, test, practice and test.

– Remove as much weight as you can, the lighter the car the faster it will go, also practice.

– Use good tires, the more grip the better specially if you practice.

– Race fuel is a good addition to the power/weight ratio but if you add power you should always practice.

– Did we say to practice and test? because that’s VERY important.

*All track/dyno related expenses are to be cover 100% by the customer.

JB4, NEUSPEED, DTUK, ETC.: Even though a sensor enhancer can help an end user make adjustments to get better overall output it is not without it’s limitations, maxed out power is limited to what the base software is allowing and there’s a significant inherit issue with the nature of this from using enhancers with DSG equipped vehicles, with different factors that could make this choice catastrophic specially with upgraded turbos on stock software.
