  1. 1.8T Engine Forum
    Hi I have been looking at the best way to get a tune and as of now im thinking of getting a stage 1 or 1.5 flashzilla tune mainly because in my town there is only people to do that and apr. I have a friend that works at the place that does tunezilla. I have also heard there is software that will...
  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Man I spent $700 with shipping on a tune for my mk4 GTI for a K04 turbo. I sent them everything done on the car and they told me they would make a tune for it specifically. After many days of emails on why the tune wasn’t working I sent it back to them. After I already told them I moved with...
  3. Jetta/GLI VI
    So I’m trying to figure out if my car is tuned or not, I bought it used. I have a Gen 3 2013.5 GLI. I don’t have a boost guage, OBD Fusion is showing 18 psi, anyone using an obd scanner on a tuned motor have any numbers? Car does not feel like stage 2 even with those numbers, could boost curve...

    I own a 2015 Jetta MK6.5 2.0 TDI 81kw/110hp automatic. It's mileage is 170 000 km/105 000 miles. So far there was no serious problems with the engine or transmission. I have the option to tune it like this: 81kw -> 132kw (110hp -> 177hp) 250Nm -> 360Nm (184 ft lbs -> 265 ft lbs) How "safe"...
  5. Golf V & Jetta V
    Hi guys, I have a Mk5 GTI Pirelli Edition (the same to an Edition 30, just different interior trims & wheels). I have been searching for remaps (tune) for the car but I seem to be out of luck. All tunes that I have found require me to drive to a dealer for the tune installation. For me that...

    Hey everyone I am new to tuning and I decided to tune my MK4 VW GOLF GTI 1.8T AWP. Now when I was looking for ways to get my car tuned I had talked to a couple of different companies about tuning my car but ultimately decided to tune the car myself. When I was searching for ECM for my car I had...

  10. TDI and Diesel Forum
    I recently bought a full delete kit for my 2014 Touareg TDI and got the tune through rawtek since it was similar in price to the tune I wanted directly from malone off their new tunezilla. Only to find out after the fact that if you want any add-ons like dynamic idle, CP3 Pump etc. you have to...
  11. Golf/GTI VII
    Hello, I just installed a JB4 tuner on my car, and I was driving with Map 2 on when I noticed it started to jump, eventually turning on my EPC and CEL lights. I also noticed that I am no longer building boost at all. My app says I am getting around 3.5 pounds max of boost. When I use the app, 7...
  12. Golf II & Jetta II
    I've been hearing great things about modified ECU chips. Better response, small power bump and even fuel economy. Does anyone on here have one they are looking to sell or could point me in the right direction? I have seen Techtonics selling them in the states but after postage and local taxes...

  15. Golf VII R
    Hey everyone, I have a question on something I did that may have been dumb on my part. I just did my first tune ever on a car, Stage 1 Equilibrium tune for 2016 Golf R. I checked the box for "burbles in sport mode" thinking, "whatever its free, even if I have my stock downpipe and dont hear any...

  18. Golf VIII R
    Hey guys, I've been away from VW for a few years (okay, maybe more than a few since my MK5 GLI)....but was curious what tuning possibilities will likely exist for the MK8 R. I've been using BMS (Burger Tuning) JB+/JB4 on my BMWs for the past 10 years. What do you guys use and why do you...

    Hey everyone, I have a chance coming up to get a new Southbend Stage 3 Daily clutch installed on my 2016 Golf R. The car is basically stock besides an intake and I know if I get this clutch put in, I can put well past Stage 1 power down in this car. Before I bought this car, I specifically...

    Hello everyone, I’ve recently been looking into chip tuning and I was going to buy a Unitronic tune, but I’ve found software like VAGSuite and EDCSuite that claim to do the same thing for cheaper. I have little knowledge of how tuning works besides it remaps the engine. Does anyone know what my...
