    Congrats! Looks very nice.

    I owned a 2015 TDi Touareg... 415 lb-ft of torque was nice! Better keep plenty of adblue on hand so you don't ever run out. I never ran out but read that if you let it run dry, the vehicle won't start. That would suck if you're a long way from home without any adblue.

    The only car I've ever owned with 315mm tires was a 1990 Corvette ZR-1. I'm always amazed to see an SUV with tires that wide.

    Yea, I plan on eliminating that whole system eventually. It will make some really good numbers with all that gone.
    The e53 4.8is we had, had those tires on it. I was surprised to see them on this though

    You probably already have full hookups for big tuning. But if you need any other. My buddy works at Malone tuning. They specialize in diesels. They have really good clean development on the M57 and N47. Iím waiting for them to get time to start on N57 development so the F10 can be a monster.

    After driving their mostly stock looking 335d with an approx 11.3 quarter mile....Iím blown away how much power is made with high reliability kept in mind with their tunes. Yes for burning up the Dino juice!!!!

    Iím new to the diesel. Donít know much about them yet. Any suggestions would be helpful
    I installed the Burger Tuning JB-D and took it down to Savannah yesterday. Iím not that impressed.
    Iím probably going to do a full emissions delete including the swirl flaps and get a tune but that will be down the road. Thatís a lot of work and $

    I asked my friend about what you have. He works at a diesel tuning shop with in house dynos and said what you have is usually good for people who want to be able to maintain warranty but if you donít have warranty he said itís far more worth it to get the full tune done.

    From my experience the EGR system is like hot air intake and since exhaust is not O2 rich itíll reduce power but burn more efficiently. Its also feeding carbon back through so removing will keep just clean air being sucked into the engine and keeping swirl flaps clean.

    The DPF constricts flow because itís filtering out that rich rolling coal fuel which is great but not great for pure exhaust flow. At different interval of driving your engine will allow the exhaust to burn hotter, heating up the DPF and burning off all the diesel soot from the filter to keep it unclogged.

    The adblue system just sprays minute amounts into the exhaust just before the muffler to convert exhaust gases to a more friendly nitrogen and water gas. If it ever goes empty the engine will be instructed not to start until filled up. If the sensor is working you will get plenty of wanting to fill it up. Usually youíll fill it up on every oil change. But with time the pump and sensor could get contaminated by crystallized adblue causing a more expensive failure of that system.

    Those are the biggest Achilles heal of all three systems. Once removed and tuned to operate without them, the engine will output enormously more power as I witnessed with my friends 335d. The better the tune, the cleaner and more reliable the exhaust burn as itís a balance over power and heat. A good tune will only let out a mild grey haze at WOT before turbos have fully spooled. It should not deposit a blackhole in the intersection sucking in petrol drivers and making them fear for their lives. LOL.

    I wonder how I check that system. I looked through the OB on the stalk and system info etc. in iDive and there was nothing about that.
