Are there tunes we don't trust (3.0L)?

Looking on the market at different tunes...I see Malone, APR, Vividracing, Kerma, RaceChip...

Many of those are names I don't know but my be Euro and I'm just dumb. Some have better prices...some have better websites (at explaining) the process.

I'm an IT guy so not to concerned about some of these software upgrade while others don't explain much.

What's your experience?

Wishful thinking: Someone needs to supply us with of each to test and review!

On my Touareg 292 HP and 499 FT-LBS.
On my A6 300.1 HP and 527 FT-LBS.
Also tuned a Cayenne Diesel with similar results as Touareg.

Tuning performed on a MAHA Dyno at Unitronic Headquarters in Montreal.

Additional note there are NO Emissions deletes on either vehicle however the A6 has no mufflers. I do not believe there are any performance gains without the muffler.

Radman...that's a beast of a tune on the T3. Is that there version of a Stage2 or are you in the stage3 world with bigger turbo and other hardware changes to get those numbers?

All stock and Stage 1 tune. The only modification is the Mufflers are removed on the A6, but I do not believe that makes any difference. Keep in mind the A6 has 20 more FT-LBS stock hence the higher numbers. Unitronic is preparing a release with the Dyno graphs etc shortly.
