Most Mk5 based 4-motion equipped cars use Haldex's second generation of AWD systems. The Gen 2 Sport controller takes into account the TPS signal more so than the OEM software and therefore can proactively begin applying power to the RWD clutch packs before wheel spin begins, and as power is increased, more power lock occurs in the RWD unit until full lock is achieved.

This product offers the following benefits:


  • increases torque transmission at acceleration
  • provides consistent performance with increased over-steer
  • torque-transmission is influenced by how quickly you depress the accelerator
  • transmits torque before the engine delivers torque
  • at greater speeds, the torque will decrease enabling less over-steer and safer driving properties


Instead of the standard Blue Gen 2 controller, HPA Motorsports is proud to exclusively offer our "Stealth" Gen2 Sport Haldex controller. Identical in appearance to your stock controller, you can now enjoy all the benefits of this performance component without jeopardizing your powertrain warranty. The Stealth controller is undetectable by your dealership; both visually as well as through a scan of your Haldex all wheel drive system.



By default, the controller is designed to be in Sport mode which transforms the handling characteristics of your AWD car by increasing torque transfer to the rear axle and giving more rear wheel bias.

With the installation of a specially engineered wiring harness and switch, you can have instant access to all three of the programs built in to the controller; Stock, Sport, and Race.

As an enthusiastic driver you may not find yourself using Stock mode very often, but it will come in useful when loaning your car to an inexperienced driver, or when you are driving in slippery conditions and want to engage the conservative safety parameters set out by the factory.

Race mode will unleash further potential as it provides faster reaction time to vehicle inputs in the AWD communication system, and allows for even greater amounts of torque transfer to the rear axle.



Orders can be placed by PayPal through our website, or by calling HPA directly at 604.598.8520.

What an amazing upgrade! I kept losing traction when in boost. Car would squat, the front would lift (I'm on air w/o e level sensors) and I'd just spin wheel. With this controller, that did not happen once this weekend at H2Oi. Amazing to feel the difference! Thanks HPA :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

I recently had a chance to put my car on the HPA dyno and we looked at the F / R split in race mode. It was much closer to a 50 / 50 split - almost a single line from about 4500 on up. :thumbup:

I would have assumed, the clutchpack fully locked with the same amount of pressure from the pump, torque split would be equal throughout the whole RPM range...that is unless the clutchpack cannot fully transfer the torque from the driveshaft in the engine's higher torque range (below 4500rpm), thus the torque split variations showing up.

Did it vary in different gears? I assume it would show the least amount of 50/50 distribution in 1st gear.
