IE ECU Performance Engine Tune For VW/Audi MQB 1.8 TSI W/IS20 Turbo

IE ECU Tunes for your 2015-2021 VW MK7 or Audi 8V 1.8T (MQB) is the best bang-for-your-buck performance modification you can make for your turbocharged engine. Add serious horsepower and torque in minutes and unleash your engine's performance potential while maintaining factory reliability and comfort. Upgrade your engine today for instant fun and excitement to your commute or the track!

IS20 Turbo Upgrade
Installing the factory IHI IS20 turbocharger found on 2015-2021 MK7 GTI vehicles offers an easy upgrade to higher boost pressures with power levels delivering up to 301HP & 361TQ on pump gas! This advanced ECU calibration, when combined with the larger IS20 and stage 2 hardware (intake, intercooler, & downpipe), delivers increased powerband and extensive turbo performance.
Advanced Engine Management
Upgrading to a larger turbocharger, ECU tune, and required hardware will deliver the maximum power while staying within the safe power limits of the stock engine internals. IE's calibration and software engineers employed highly advanced tuning practices and equipment to develop a complete ground-up engine management system for the larger turbo's boost profile and powerband. All engine mapping and safety coding have been retained and rewritten for substantial power gains for your larger IHI IS20 or IS38 turbocharger.
Increased RPM
To take advantage of your new larger power band, factory rev limiters are raised to 7000 RPM in all stages (will shift slightly before at 6900 RPM on DSG DQ250 equipped cars).
Reliability Testing
IE's fully proven software brings track-ready ECU programming to your turbocharged MQB 1.8T engine while retaining factory comfort and reliability. IE's own tuning technology suite completely reverse-engineers the factory ECU mapping, allowing our software engineers to realign all safety protocols and sensors for the new performance calibration. Every tune parameter undergoes months of testing on our in-house dyno systems that utilize the world's only Sea Level Generator developed specifically to verify tune operations in any condition. Confidently drive from LA to Pikes Peak with power that will keep you smiling every mile!  
Exhaust Crackle
Enabling the optional Exhaust Crackle feature will add a motorsport-inspired crackle sound to your exhaust note when you free-rev the engine or decelerate. The crackle feature is an included option with Stage 2 and higher.
