HOW DO I INSTALL THE TUNE?

IE's own in-house developed POWERlink cable and software gives you the freedom to quickly flash your car’s engine control unit (ECU) or transmission control unit (TCU) with your new IE performance tune. The cable simply plugs into your vehicle’s OBD-2 port, from there simply follow the on-screen directions to quickly upload the tune. Adding horsepower is as easy as clicking FLASH NOW!

The flash tool also grants instant access to upgrade tune stages, switch fuel octanes, flash back to stock, perform engine diagnostics, read/clear codes and gather high-quality operating data via logging.

System requirements:

Laptop or tablet with Wifi connection and USB port running Windows 7 or above operating system required. Powered by 32 or 64 bit processor with 1.0GHz or greater and 4GB of Ram.

WHAT DOES AN ECU TUNE DO?

VW & Audi 1.8T Gen 3 engines are controlled by an advanced Engine Control Unit (ECU). This powerful computer is loaded with complicated maps and routines from factory to optimize vehicle efficiency over performance. Tons of available power is left on the table and the calibration is not written to take advantage of aftermarket power adders such as cold air intakes, intercoolers, donwpipes and more. IE's ECU upgrades replace these boring stock files with Motorsport ready tunes developed from extensive engineering. Our leading ECU calibrators completely reverse-engineer the factory mapping and re-write new calibrations for ultimate performance without sacrificing factory comfort and reliability. Each performance stage undergoes thousands of dyno tests, street analysis, track days, altitude testing and more -each test resulting in tweaks and revisions to the calibrations. The end result is an obsessively tuned and optimized beast that will completely transform your vehicle to deliver that addictive power you crave.

READY TO UPGRADE TO THE NEXT STAGE?

Upgrading from one stage to the next 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!

IMPORTANT NOTES

REST OF WORLD (ROW) SUPPORT
IE tunes are designed and written on North American (NA) vehicles. Although IE does offer ROW purchases of software files, some ECUs available only in certain countries or markets may not be supported in our current file library. If you have access to read your ECU code, please contact us to verify compatibility before purchase.

INCREASED RPM
IE MK7 & 8V 1.8T Gen 3 performance calibrations continue to make power and torque above the factory rev limiter. To take advantage of the larger power band, factory rev limits have been raised to 7000RPM. On automatic equipped cars, our DSG Tune is required to unlock these higher RPM ranges. DSG Calibration will shift slightly before (6900RPM).

Once a tune purchase is applied to your vehicle's ECU, the tune is permanently registered to the vehicle and non-transferable to other vehicles. Tune can be transferred to a second party in the event of vehicle transfer of ownership only. Try IE software for 45 days from shipment date, if for any reason you are unsatisfied the tune may be removed and refunded risk-free.

Worth every cent

Was a bit hesitant at fist to flash my Alltrack coming from a JB4 but holy s*** is it a huge difference. I'm running the 93 octane high torque map with a DSG tune to match and it screams! Tons of turbo noise when paired with the IE intake and the crackle file is hilariously fun for a wagon. Nobody expects to get gapped by the mom whip. Hoping there's a IS38 file coming soon cause I'm not sure how long my turbo is gonna hold up with the power I'm making, but hey gotta pay to play. IE crushed the 1.8t tune!

Fantastic!

I don't know why I waited so long to pull the trigger on this. It really wakes the car up and I'm only on stage 1! Will definitely be going to stage 2 once I get the other required hardware.

It push you back

Okay I went back and forth for a long time on going stage 1 in my base mk7 5 speed. This thing rips. The car was always peppy but now its fast, scary fast. From fisr gear to 5th this thing pulls. In normal driving it just feels more responsive. If your on the fence just do it! Worth it 100%.

Great tune

Besides some minor adjustments we had change when first installing. This is a great tune. Makes great power. I have aftermarket exhaust and intake as well. This is a very aggressive tune and will definitely put you up there with the faster cars. Still waiting for stage 2.

Worth the money

First, I have to say the customer service I have recieved so far has been amazing.

Installing the IE software was very straight forward and simple.

After installing the software and loading the Stage 1 tune to my Mk7 Golf. The power was immediately there. Everything shifts well, and drives well. Waiting for stage 2 to be released for the 1.8t later on.
