ADD POWER IN MINUTES

IE's POWERlink Cable and Flash Wizard software gives you the freedom to quickly flash your new IE ECU Tune. Simply plug your POWERlink into the vehicle's OBD-2 port and follow the on-screen directions, it's that easy!

DIRECT PORT

The IE POWERlink is a powerful direct-port tool that plugs directly into your vehicle's OBD-2 terminal. This grants instant access to flash and upgrade tune stages, switch fuel octanes, turn on/off features, flash back to stock, perform engine diagnostics, and record logs with the built-in data logger from the comfort of your own driveway.

OCTANE SWITCHING

All IE RS3 & TTRS stages include multiple octane options. Using your IE Powerlink, you can easily switch between calibrations for different fuels and unlock different power levels. Depending on the Stage, choose from 91, 93, 100, 104, and E85 octanes.

UPGRADE STAGES

Upgrading from Stage 1 to Stage 2 is easy! With IE, you only pay the difference in tune cost with no extra fees. When you install the required matching hardware, simply follow the link on your IE POWERlink software to purchase the tune upgrade and you will be blowing away the competition in minutes!

TOGGLE FEATURES

Simply plug-your IE POWERlink to quickly turn on optional features such as the included 1000cc injector file. The process is the same as adding a tune and can be turned off just as easily.

CODE READER

Pesky check engine light turn on? Save a trip to the shop and use your IE POWERlink to diagnose the problem. The easy to use code reader will pull up any trouble codes and once the issue is fixed, clear the code and get back to the fun.

DATA LOGGER

Verify the healthy operation of your engine using the built-in data logging function. Nothing is better than a piece of mind that your investment is operating optimally. First time data logging? This article will help show you the ropes: How To Data Log

RELIABILITY TESTING

IE's fully proven software brings track-ready ECU programming to your 5 cylinder engine while retaining factory comfort and reliability. IE's own tuning technology is used to completely reverse-engineer the factory ECU mapping, allowing our software engineers access to match 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!  

LEADING TUNE FEATURES

  • Horsepower & torque gains maximized, especially in the mid-range
  • Stock boost control optimized for a smoother driving experience
  • Rev limiter increased to 7200 RPM in manual mode or with DSG flash  
  • Exhaust flaps programmed to open under boost
  • Launch control boost pressure increased for faster launches
  • Increased rev limiters (transmission stock shift points remain)
  • Road speed limiters removed
  • Boost safely reduces as engine temps increase for engine life 
  • Annoying cold start rattle eliminated
  • Engineered for all climates and elevations

E85 ETHANOL

E85 fuel unlocks the most performance potential from our stage 2 tune and even the ability to run 10s in a quarter mile! Ethanol contains tons of oxygen, burns cooler, and has a high resistance to knock. This provides more horsepower and torque than running conventional gasoline and is more readily available (in most states) and less expensive than race gas. E85 is an optional fuel map included with Stage 1 & Stage 2 purchase.

1000CC INJECTORS

E85 requires much more fuel and can stretch the limitations of the factory 2.5T fuel system. IE offers an optional 1000cc injector file included with your tune that allows the installation of larger port injectors. When added to the direct port injectors, the combination allows massive headroom to safely run E85 worry free. Adding larger port injectors is more cost efficient and reliable than an upgraded HPFP and will run on both pump gas and ethanol with a regular idle and stock-like drivability. For best results we recommend the Sharp-Motorsport injector kit.

E60-E85 ADAPTABLE

Although full E85 is recommended for the highest power output, safeguards are included within the E85 ECU calibration to adjust for ethanol as low as E60. This flexibility gives you the confidence to safely fill up at the pump which can commonly test lower than advertised E85.

Rs3 stage 1

Just the tune is extremely impressive. Been with IE software for years and never disappointed. Needs the DSG tune for a complete package to tame the harsher shifts. The car is a weapon.

RS3 stage 1 tune!

Very REFINED! loving the power on demand..

I do however, miss the aggressive exhaust note! I’m sure this will return, as I am planning on upgrading my intercooler as well as my downpipe!

By the way, why did you stop making Intercoolers for the RS?

This tune is great!

The upgrade of this tune is mainly reflected in the mid-range(2000RPM-5000RPM),But I suggest setting the starting point of the red line area to 7200RPM.

Solid tune for RS3

Nice and reliable tune! Works great for my daily driver. I came from a world of open source tuning my cars, so having the benefit of a plug-and-click tune is great! Tad bit pricey, but we’ll worth it to take full advantage of the 5-cyl. The power on tap is excellent and the increased torque is prefect for passing. Only downside is that there is no IE TCU tune to pair with it as the factory shift points don’t take full advantage of the increased torque and power.
