2013 Volkswagen GTI MK6
Category : Automobile Performance
A client contacted me and wanted his VW GTI calibrated, we spoke about the mods that he had and what we could do for his set up. After finally getting the go ahead from the client a appointment was set up to visit the rollers. This past week we had the great opportunity to finally order the VW Cobb Tuning Protuner license. Before the license key arrived from Cobb that game me a good chance to hit up some of the great only tutorials and tips that Cobb offers for its ProTuners.
Always the challenge with calibrating a new platform that we are not used to seeing is knowing what tables need to be touched and understanding how the actual oem ECU does its strategy to achieve safe power levels. The one thing I love about the Cobb tuning platform is the great lengths the engineers go to keep all the necessary safety nets in place so the car’s engine can be protected during all the regions of operation.
Mods on the vehicle were:
Cobb Intake / Cobb Turbo Back exhaust / Cobb Accessport v3 / DSG Auto Transmission
Before and after results of the Stage2 ProTune calibration. Test was done in 4th gear sport mode and ambient conditions on the day were: 82F, 50% hum. 29.97 Baro.
Client’s reaction a day after the mapping of his vehicle.
Overall, what an improvement, especially on the lower and really high
end. Makes sense for what we changed!
Also it’s boosting up to 20.7psi, which is perfect.
Thanks a lot again man!
