    Hi I had my car in the shop last week to diagnose no turbo power, DPF light, and flashing igniter light on dash. VW says my DPF is shot and wants 2.5k to replace it. I'm also leaking some oil into inter-cooler tube on the right side, but that's another problem to fix.

    I'm considering just installing a DPF and EGR delete kit and getting a 0.5-1.5 Stage tune from Malonetuning.

    Anyone installed either of these kits and have any thoughts?

    I've included the price with shipping to my location. I'm wondering if the extra price is worth it, or can I just spend the extra $170 on my tune. I see from the design that there are less pieces in the BuzzKen. Does anyone know if it's harder to install that way?

    Also does anyone know if these kit's replace everything from the turbo to the pipe leading to the muffler? I'm looking to delete the exhaust back pressure valve as well.

    Not going for the recall?

    Get stage 2 for extra exhaust.

    Or you could save some money and buy a slightly used system and save some money.. I just happen to have the Rawtek system with a straight mid-pipe for sale. I also have a GDM egr delete for sale. I don't come here often so reply via text @(904)755-111eight
