Malone Stage 2.0 2012 Touareg 3.0 TDi.

Went down to lower mainland yesterday to Malone in Langley, Owain installed stage 2.0 files and AdBlue delete. Just need to bolt up the Rawtek exhaust and should be good to go. With stock exhaust (with 2.0 tune) there is a noticable increase in felt power/torque. I can say it's now a Coquihalla cruiser for sure... was prior to the tune, but now has no problem running sustained speed well North of 120 kph. Can easily outdrive the new Hakkapellitta 9 studded winters it's wonderful to zip along in and with full summers on will be trouble for the wife.... read tickets...

Will let you know fuel figures once I log more Kms.

Can't wait to get mine tuned. Not sure what to make of the Canadian 3.0tdi fix though. Should I wait or just do it...

When I did my tune on a 2012 I felt the dpf delete pipe woke it up almost more than the tune. You will like the pipe!

I've not heard of any fix, in fact I was speaking with a VW dealer service rep and they hadn't received any info either so I decided just to got for it. Can always put back to stock, I'll be keeping all the parts, just in case.

Hopefully I'll get the pipe on today, looking forward to results for sure, have you seen any increase in fuel economy? How long have you had it installed? And did you leave the stock muffler on?

Thanks,

No increase in fuel economy. Had it on for about 35,000 miles. Left the stock muffler on, slight increase in the exhaust note. VW bought the Touareg back. Now I have a 2015 Cayenne diesel.

Whoa NICE... so now that you have driven both, appreciable differences? What is the "fix" in respect to Diesel gate for the 3.0 TDi diesels I've not heard really anything here in Western Canada and will you have to execute one on the Cayenne?

Thanks for your insights.

Once my Touareg is out of warranty, I'm planning the same tune, and DPF/Adblue delete. I'm also trying to decide if I should wait for the fix, in order to get the sorry money, and they do the tune and delete after the fix. I'm also wondering if the software fix would mess with the stage 2 tune? I'm from NS but last week I drove through the Coquihalla highway, and highway 97 in a crappy Nissan Altima rental car. I was wishing I had my Touareg the whole way!!! Those are quite the highways, and that car didn't enjoy trying to sustain those speeds at all like a TDI Touareg would.

The biggest difference is the suspension tuning. Much more taught and very flat cornering. I thing the mapping on the tranny is stepped up a bit as the shifts are firmer. I have not heard anything on the fix at this point. There will be a fix for the for the cayenne as well, when, who knows. Let me know how the pipe install went and what you think now.

Good to know about the suspension tuning. I'd heard of someone who was able to transpose Cayenne shift files into their 2012 Touareg TDi. Never did respond on how or who did it for him though. In terms of shifting I typically use the standard mode have tried the Sport and it seems to hold higher RPM longer before shifting which feels like over reving the engine. The manual mode I've just not logged enough Kms and find I seem to over rev in this mode too.

Pipe install went good, given there were no directions so took a little longer. The in pipe sensors, I had to put heat on the bungs along with penetrating oil first. Ended up breaking off all the exhaust flange bolts as they wouldnt loosen off. Post install, pleased with the results, albeit haven't driven that far. And you are correct replacing the stock exhaust made a significant increase in felt performance and combine it's pretty zippy....
