Get the full performance out of your 2.5L engine tune on automatic transmissions with IE's TCU tune for all VW MK5 & MK6 2.5L autos. Unlock the higher RPM range for Stage 1 and Stage 2 Intake Manifold Tunes and let that 5 cylinder breath. Enjoy increased power, higher RPM limit, and faster shifts with optimized and adjustable shift points.
Stock transmission tuning on the automatic VW 2.5L engines limits the RPM range and greatly reduces the available power of your rev happy 2.5L 5 cylinder engine. IE's TCU tune has been carefully set up to offer you the full performance benefits of ECU tuning and hardware upgrades such as the IE Intake Manifold by safely increasing the available RPM limit. The result is a fully unlocked power range offering the entire performance capability of the 2.5L engine on your automatic transmission.
IE’s TCU tune is all-inclusive and does not offer expensive upgrades. That’s right, there are no unnecessary upgrade charges and all features are included from the outset. The purchase of this tune offers all features for every Stage of ECU tune with no fee or upgrade cost when going from Stage 1 to Stage 2 Intake Manifold Tunes. Transmission tune requires a matching ECU Tune, do not install on stock ECU tunes. The purchase of an IE TCU file grants you access to customization of shift points. With optional RPM limits to choose from you can pick what works best for your setup! 6800 RPM limit is commonly paired with Stage 1 ECU files while the 7100 RPM limit completely unlocks the massive power gained in the upper RPM limit when paired with our Stage 2 ECU Tune and Intake Manifold.
The IE intake manifold is a popular upgrade for owners looking for the full power potential from the stock 2.5L engine. Until now, the power was completely limited to manual transmission cars only as the automatic trans would shift before the power gains in the higher RPMs could be utilized. Now you can join in the fun on your own automatic 2.5L vehicle and rev happy adding up to 47HP & 38TQ when paired with an IE Manifold & Stage 2 Tune! (IE Manifold is not compatible with vehicles equipped with hydraulic power steering).
Increasing the RPM limit allows your matching IE Stage 1 or Stage 2 tune to make power higher into the RPM range fully unlocking the hidden power available at higher shifts. IE TCU and ECU Tunes were developed side by side on our in-house dynamometer. By running both tunes you will unlock the full potential of your 2.5L 07K engine and transmission.
IE's POWERlink direct port flash tool is required to flash your ECU (engine control unit) or TCU (transmission control unit) and is available separately.
