FMU's suck. I think that some vw guys use megasquirt. You may want to look into that.

i vote for an extra injector controler... SDS EIC or setting up a Megasquirt as a EIC...

you can just get the turbo chip from TTtuning. But you may have issues with a high MAF signal due to boost. The FMU won't work because the car will still be ready the high airflow and getting f'ed up, there is no way to block the MAF from seeing boost (like the missing link would in a honda). Just get the chip. or even better -switch to Honda

eip stage 2 turbo chip- it ran my friends car fine before he went haltech.

i see a lot of vw guys run fmu's...my friend is running a cartech rising rate fmu on an aba-T with g60 injectors. everything else is stock. his a/f is 11.8-12 on 10 psi. plus vw makes its motors out of solid steel or some ----, cause i rarely see one break under mild boost( their trannys are a different story...)
