Unitronic is pleased to announce the official worldwide release of its Performance Software for the MK7 Golf R® and 8V S3®.

Unitronic has precisely re-calibrated the SIMOS 12/18 engine control unit (ECU) to deliver maximum performance while ensuring complete OEM-like reliability and drivability from V.A.G.’s latest generation of the turbocharged four cylinder high-output 2.0-liter TSI® engine found in the MQB chassis. Unitronic’s Performance Software is programmable directly through the OBD-2 port and within minutes you’ll be enjoying a total night-and-day driving experience.



Unitronic’s Stage 1 and Stage 1+ Performance Software are both designed for otherwise complete stock vehicles, requiring no supporting hardware modifications and provides a great entry-level upgrade. Stage 1 is optimized for 91 OCT/95 RON fuel, producing 355 HP/338 lb-ft TQ.



For Clients with access to 93 OCT/98 RON fuel, Stage 1+ takes advantage of higher grade fuel, producing an increase in output to 375 HP/350 lb-ft TQ; a remarkable +57 HP and +50 lb-ft TQ over Unitronic’s recorded stock figures.



Taking it to the next level, Unitronic sets itself apart from the competition with its Stage 2 Performance Software, requiring a 3” downpipe, which alleviates exhaust restrictions created by the stock catalytic converter allowing for optimal dissipation of exhaust backpressure and maximum flow. Unitronic’s Stage 2 Performance Software boasts an increase of 79 HP and 68 lb-ft of TQ over the stock power as recorded by Unitronic, with an output of 397 HP and 368 lb-ft of TQ.




Additional features encompassed with all Stages of Unitronic Performance Software for the 2.0 TSI Gen3 include:
• Left foot braking
• Improved throttle response
• Factory Failsafes Retained
• Engine Temperature Protection (rev limit based on engine coolant temperature)
• Optimized Responsiveness and driveability
• Speed Limiter Removed
• Power delivery perfectly optimized throughout the power band
• Increased fuel economy

Applications:
MK7 VW® Golf R
8V Audi® S3
5F Seat® Leon® Cupra®
5F Seat Leon Cupra 280
MKIII Audi TTS®

*Subject to ecu box code availability.

For more information, be sure to contact your local Authorized Unitronic Dealer to get yours now!

lol I have a very noob-ish question. With this Stage 1 tune, will my S3 get flagged for TD1 if I go in the dealership lets say to get my first 5K mile oil change? Thanks!

We can not make any guarantees on "TD1 flagging", but it's recommended to reflash back to stock prior to visiting the dealership if you're concerned. :thumbup:

Are your stage 2 numbers with 93 OCT fuel? Here in CO it's hard to find anything above 91. What HP and T gains do you get from stage 2 with 91 OCT?

Thanks

Does this flash and re-flash have to be done at a Unitronic dealer or can it be done on your own?
Until the release of UniConnect for the SIMOS 12/18 ECUs found in the MK7 Golf R and 8V S3, the flash (and reflashes) must be done through an Authorized Unitronic Dealer. :thumbup:

Yes, they are rated using 93 octane. Unfortunately we do not have dyno graphs available using 91 octane, but you can expect slightly lower figures.

I'm noticing over on the Golf R side people using APR tunes are experiencing "limp mode" off and on again. lol, I can sort of figure out what that terminology means I guess but is Unitronic tunes having similar issues? Especially the Stage 1? Any input would be great!

We haven't had any of our Golf R/S3 clients having similar issues. Here's feedback one of our clients posted: http://forums.vwvortex.com/mobiquo/...=topic&page=1&perpage=35&fid=5319&tid=7129431

On a "stage 2" car, is there additional power to be had by going with a catless downpipe like Miltek instead of the catted downpipe Unitronic offers?
