    Hilton recommends the grey especially when the car is tuned. Contrast strongly recommends to use the OEM even if the car is tuned.
    Both are respected, top rated and very knowledgeable tuners.
    I'm sure each has their own reasons why and what they're recommending.

    @Ricardo,
    Yes, the OEM seems to have quicker response on partial throttle, while 'Gandalf' feels stronger and balanced across the rev range.

    htomi,
    Hilton mentions both TCV on his website.
    https://hiltontuning.com/product/200...0rv70r-me7-p2/

    Anyway, none of them adds hp

    Mine is strong with 22psi boost. Currently with 370hp/crank and 500Nm (not finished yet).

    Yeah, I know it will not add any HP

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, the 2 mentioned TCVs have different internal parts and as such different impact on how and when the boost level achieved.

    Seems Hilton changed his website and the tuning options available compared to the one I remember from last year.

    Congrats for your achievement!
