Stage 2 Tune, Mk 7 Golf

The target is 336-340HP and 400+ FT of torque.  Tune mods include a Stage 2 remap, full Miltek exhaust (decat system), cold air intake, and upgraded blow off valve…  Other work includes a full set of mags and tyres, carbon rear lip and mirrors. This car will be a huge amount of fun!!

Lets get started!!!

 

 

 

Above and below showing the difference in the intake systems

New system in, tailpipes look amazing, much larger than the standard.

Old verse new, catalytic converter delete, and larger diameter outlet.

There is a turbo up in there somewhere!!!!

 

Mechanical break down warranties recommended

We are huge advocates for mechanical breakdown insurance, and this week has highlighted the importance., we have four big engine jobs queued at the moment, all eligible for a warranty policy, only two have…

These pics are of a GTI Golf that’s travelled less than 120,000kms.  Presented to us for the first time with an engine light on and a light tapping from the engine.  This is a very common fault of a Mk V GTi.  Unfortunately someone has replaced the fuel pump (Tappet) plunger on this one but the damage was already done.. The unsuspecting new owner has picked up an expensive fix, requiring a new camshaft, fuel pump and associated parts to get things up and running again.

Other jobs on the go include failed cams on an RS4, Nil compression on a V6 A4 Audi, and another MK V Gti with Nil oil pressure at idle, maybe some future blogging to happen here once we open them up…..

Some great feedback from one of the tune we did (Citroen)

I would like to take the opportunity to say that the car performance/behaviour has changed significantly on take-off, the lag is gone. It also feels quieter and smoother. Overall, a more enjoyable drive. If I only knew that it would perform this better I’d have it done earlier; Satisfaction overcomes cost.

Thank you for all the prompt and clear communication, professionalism and quality of service throughout the process. I will definitely recommend your shop to others.

Have a great weekend!

Kind regards,

Marcelo Wehrs
