IE PERFORMANCE TUNING FOR VW GTI MK7/MK7.5 & Audi A3 8V (2015+) 2.0T
Adding an IE Performance ECU Tune to your GTI or A3 packs a serious punch both in performance gains and in additional features resulting in extremely competitive power that will give you the edge on the street or track. IE’s in-house calibration engineers have taken several steps to ensure you a smooth and safe operation by maintaining factory safety limits, or “fail safes”, resulting in reliability. As a final step, the software has been calibrated in test environments that ensure smooth operation in all types of climates and elevations.
 
Available Tunes
IE STAGE 1
Stage 1 is designed for those wanting more power without adding any additional parts. In less time than a lunch break, power gains are delivered smoothly across the entire powerband and many performance features have been added. Enthusiasts will have the choice between 91 & 93 fuel octanes and the ability to flash back to stock within minutes. As another added benefit, your IE Stage 1 Tune has been designed to adapt to minor bolt-on modifications, such as an intercooler or intake. Low torque and high torque files are available.
 
IE STAGE 2
For those wanting to squeeze every last ounce of power from the stock turbo 2.0T engine, our Stage 2 ECU tune takes full advantage of performance bolt-ons including downpipe, intake, and intercooler. You can install this setup in a single weekend and transform your GTI or A3 into a true street beast with 327 HP and 399 TQ! Easily switch between free octane tunes whenever you want to add more power with your choice of 91 or 93 octane files. Load Stage 2 and get ready to experience the true power monster that has been hiding under the hood of your MQB VW or Audi. Stage 2 not currently available for 2019+ GTI, support coming soon!
 
DSG Tune Required For Select ECU Files
Required for GTI & A3 Stage 1 high torque and all Stage 2 tune files, IE's DSG transmission tune will no longer lug the engine in drive mode or short shift the larger powerband. Clutch clamping forces are increased so the transmission can safely handle and deliver the increased power and torque. To get the most out of your tune investment, a lot of features have been added to make a fully rounded performance vehicle with more aggressive launches, faster shifting, higher RPM, and optimized shift points, and selectable launch control.
 
IE POWERlink Direct Port Flash Tool
IE's own in-house developed POWERlink cable gives you the control to unlock your engine’s true potential from your own garage or driveway. Enjoy the freedom to quickly reflash your car’s engine control unit (ECU) or transmission control unit (TCU) with IE’s line of performance tunes. The cable simply plugs into your vehicle’s OBD-2 port delivering instant access to choose different IE Tune stages to match installed hardware, take advantage of different fuel octanes, flash back to stock, perform engine diagnostics, read/clear codes and gather high-quality operating data via logging.
 
Easy Operation
Simply plug your IE POWERlink cable into your Golf R’s OBD-II port and the USB port on your Windows-powered laptop to use the included IE Flash Wizard software.
 
Simple Tune Upgrades
Upgrading to Stage 2 or beyond is easy! You only pay the difference in cost between the files with no additional or hidden fees. Upgrade at any time.

Technical Features
Dynometer Optimized
After completely reverse engineering the factory ECU, our engineers use our in-house Dynapack DP42 dynamometer to perform repeated runs to test each change that is made to the software and confirm drivability in any situation. This ensures IE performance software delivers massive horsepower and torque increases across the entire powerband. Using our in-house dyno and advanced tuning tools, IE engineers have fully optimized every aspect of the factory ECU mapping on many different vehicles. This produces a tune that retains all factory like driving and safety protocols when needed, and an intense surge of power when you want it.
 
Removed Speed Limiter
The factory ECU speed limiter has been removed to make sure the increased power and torque can be used to its full potential on straightaways and drag strips.
 
Increased Rev Limit
With the significant power increase, the rev limiter is also increased to allow a wider powerband on all IE GTI & A3 files. By increasing the rev limit, you gain a perfect match for the increased performance available from your new IE performance software tune.
 
Improved Throttle Response
To further increase the responsive feel of the car, IE engineers have carefully adjusted the throttle sensitivity. This offers a more connected feeling to your car with plenty of power available right beneath your foot.
 
Optimized Fueling
All IE tunes have been adjusted to run as economically as possible, dialing in air/fuel ratios to exactly where they need to be. With an IE performance ECU flash, it is common to see increased fuel economy under cruising and part-throttle driving.
