What I've read on the VW Golf R forums is that even running a piggyback and removing it is still detectable by the VW/Audi ECM scanning software. Something about the way boost is recorded and gets saved in the memory.

With the DSG, a hefty 93-100 octane tune, TCU tune, and exhaust work, I've seen true strip times (via YouTube) in the 11.99-12.3 range at 110-114mph. Pretty dang impressive for a 4 banger turbo, especially considering what they run stock (13.4@102mph).
