Immobilizer Delete

The ECU needs to be removed from the vehicle and shipped to us, or one of our dealers with the appropriate tools. Immobilizer delete is not available yet for 2012-2014 Passat 2.0L TDIs.

DSG Transmission Software Update

Required for all North American and some International 2.0L CR TDIs, before using most of our performance engine tunes. Virtually all factory 110-140HP DSG software has a 258 ft-lb torque limiter, which is well below our Stage 1 ECU tune’s torque. The factory TDI Cup race cars have a 368 ft-lb torque limiter.

Any performance ECU (engine) tune that attempts to produce more torque than the DSG’s stock limit will most likely result in degraded shifting quality and torque limitation. Many customers have turned to us for this very reason. DSGs are increasingly modern technology and their computers are as important to tune as the ECU.

Many tuners claim that DSG tuning is not required, yet they do not have any DSG tuning solution to begin with. One common reason for this is the logistics involved in developing & supplying DSG flashing hardware to a large dealer network. It takes time, so for now only their ECU tunes are readily available. If you want a factory quality tuning solution, then do not settle halfway with just an ECU tune. Consider getting our complete tuning package.

Our DSG software has the following features: Raised torque limiter, slightly increased clutch pressure, add gear number indicator in instrument cluster in all DSG modes, retain OEM-like gearshift smoothness (or smoother), optimized shift points for faster acceleration, disabled kick-down in Manual mode (based on genuine DSG software from the TDI Cup race series), disabled up-shift in Manual mode (based on genuine DSG software from the TDI Cup race series), and in most cases launch control is added. Not all cars are able to take advantage of all these features, for example some 2012-2013 Passat TDIs may not show gear number in D mode. 

The DSG tune can be installed by one of our dealers (appointment required) or by renting our DSG flash tool ($2000 deposit required). Click here to see DSG flashing instructions or to sign up for the DSG rental wait list.

Dynamic Idle

Speed up engine-warm up with a 1,100 RPM (or another RPM of your choice) idle. The idle will return to stock state (approximately 830RPM) by 70C (158F) coolant temperature. An engine that gets warmer sooner means that you get interior heat sooner (more comfort during cold weather) and optimal efficiency (fuel economy) sooner.

EGR delete

EGR delete only. 349 0

These tunes have been designed to work with the stock exhaust hardware. We do tune slightly more aggressively for vehicles used in off road applications, however those tunes will not pass any form of emissions testing and are not designed for road use.


Most orders are custom tailored and we prefer that you contact us by e-mail. We will be happy to produce a personalized invoice for you.

The published power figures are for reference only. Your results may differ


Additional Information

You can use a FlashZilla v3 to tune your ECU. Or book an appointment with a dealer.


CR140 Stage 0.5 +18 WHP +0 WTQ



CR140 Stage 1 +20 WHP +62 WTQ



CR140 Stage 2 +30 WHP +70 WTQ


DPF delete (Eco tune) is only optional with this tune. You CAN run this tune with 100% stock emissions.
This tune also has better fuel economy potential than Stage 0.5 and Stage 1. 


CR140 Stage 3 +50 WHP +85 WTQ


There is a possibility of clutch slip or DMF shudder (manual transmissions). We recommend budgeting for a clutch and flywheel upgrade.

DSG transmissions only need a software upgrade. Those who experience DMF shudder may require an ECU re-tune with reduced peak torque.


Stage 3.5



Stage 4


Power results vary depending on your modifications. Too many possible configurations.


CR170 Stage 1 +26 WHP +43 WTQ



Econo Tune


Eliminates DPF maintenance concerns. Can be purchased as a standalone tune, or a free add-on for Stage 0.5 and higher tunes. Only for use in areas where emissions laws are not applicable. Modified emission control systems are illegal on most public roads. For more information, see here. Even if this setup has zero fault codes and runs great, your hidden "OBD2 Readiness" monitors may not show "Pass" and that may prevent you from passing e-test. Again, this is an off-road-only tune and we will not fake Readiness monitors.
