GIAC Flashloader hand-held switcher for 2.0 T/ FSI applications will be available at Waterfest

The Flashloader Hand-held switcher will be sold this weekend at Waterfest, July 15, with GIAC’s performance 91-octane programming and any combination of four other GIAC programming options: stock, valet, anti-theft, and privacy firewall programming. Up to 15 switching combinations. The new privacy firewall provides greater security for your car and GIAC accessories. MSRP is $200 for switching including stock mode programming with the purchase of GIAC performance software (MSRP $550).


  • VW Jetta V/ Golf V 2.0T

  • Audi A3 2.0T
  • Audi A4 B7 2.0T
  • Audi A6 2.0T

The performance software continues to offer exceptionally smooth drivability with the same punch you are used to with GIAC X-plus programming. Extensive dyno tests with our 91-octane software revealed an impressive 18-50 HP and 50-85 TQ (crank) over stock, hardware modification and model dependent.

To get the most out of the software, we recommend updating to a performance turbo-back exhaust system.

Both the switcher and all software from GIAC can be installed quickly and easily via GIAC’s proprietary CAN-compatible flashing tool at specially-equipped GIAC authorized dealers.
