    Won't make a significant difference but every bit helps I guess. Easiest way to boost ROF is to increase the battery voltage.

    Try LIHV and get a .1V bump per cell.

    Best piston for a DSG build? My SHS blew out and I’m not skimping

    Expect to blow pistons on a DSG if the tuning isnt perfect. It also doesnt help things are made in batches and quality varies between them.

    So I thought I would experiment with stronger tappet plate springs. Normal tappet plate springs have 0.6mm thick wire. So I ordered a couple of different springs with different wide diameters from Aliexpress. So I got 0.8mm thickness (0.8mm*6mm*25mm) and also 1mm thickness. The 1mm thickness fitted over the front post but when closing the shell of the gearbox, the wire was getting in the way just a little. So I have not bothered with the 1mm as it is really overkill. The 0.8mm seems to fit really nicely but I have trimmer a couple of coils.
    I have not had time to test but I am pretty sure it will work a treat. So if you are wanting a better tappet plate spring, get a spring from Aliexpress that has 0.8mm thick wire.

    So you have a link or screen shot of the listing for the springs you bought?

    Get the 25mm spring. I then took off 2 coils and it works a treat. I tested the strength of it and it is a little stronger than my current spring that is already strong.
