the EM wont really increase power - it does increase flow and address potential issues of burned valves on #1 and 5 cylinders with the stock EM

If you really want to get to the potential of the RS2, you must do the turbo, MAF, FI, FPR and ECU at the same time - otherwise you may run too rich or too lean depending on the combination.

(This is a "known" combination, meaning that you can obtain the correct SW from a number of sources ( IA, Hoppen, etc)

Now you are adding to the variables and really need to consult an expert that can match them all.
