The third generation of the TT was unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.The FV/8S generation utilises the Volkswagen Group MQB platform, and is available with a choice of TFSI and TDI engines.
The 2.0 TFSI is available in two versions: a version producing 169 kW (230 PS; 227 hp) and 370 Nm (272.90 lb-ft) of torque in the TT and a version producing 228 kW (310 PS; 306 hp) and 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft) of torque in the TTS.
As we have done multiple times while tuning the MQB 2.0l TSI platform our stage 1 Ecu tune is safe and will not harm the IS38 turbocharger by overspinning it unlike other tuners. After all after 2015.5 the those is 38 turbochargers were revised and enhanced since the first generation was braking down even as stock.
By adjusting the calibration to the new engine management system that all the 2.0l tsi Mqb platforms are using, we can achieve power levels up to 420hp depending on the fuel and the setup of the car.The Siemens simos18.1 ecu is more then capable of handling whatever gains you are going for and in conjunction with the DSG gearbox the power delivery is smooth and linear all over the power band.
In our horse power diagram above you can see that our stage1 software has reached 368ps and 500nm which is very safe for both the engine and the turbocharger.Without a DSG remap (dq250) this is the maximum torque levels you can reach without triggering the safety mechanisms that reduce power to the engine and without tricking the gearbox that there is less torque demands, something that will introduce clutch slips in the future.
