The Stage 2 files for the 1.8T EA888.3 engine satisfies the gap that separates the Golf 1.8T from the GTI 2.0T. Increasing output to an eye watering 250 ft-lb of real, usable torque, our Stage 2 files also improve throttle response and drivability to a level that feels akin to the flagship FWD hot hatch of the VW brand. Leaving your wallet with more room to breath so you can upgrade tires and brakes to hunt down GTI's on the open track.
At TuneZilla, we strive for an OEM level of drivability and reliability. Our team of Calibrators from around the world painstakingly work to deliver repeatable performance on all of our base maps. One of the major differences between our tunes and most of our competitors tunes is our linear OEM like throttle response. Where some software tuners increase throttle response to mask the actual output of their tunes by giving a very peaky feeling under acceleration, our tunes are designed to make the most usable and consistent power curve possible to maintain a strong pull without a heavy fall off midway through the power band. All while generating peak power as early as possible in the RPM range. Most off the shelf tunes advertise an attractive peak power figure, but suffer from a sudden drop in torque and a lower torque curve throughout the remainder of the RPM range.
Suitable for manual / Aisin / DSG gearboxes - A DSG tune is required if the vehicle has a DSG transmission
