The Challenge

We will in this article get into how tuning the Volkswagen Golf MK7 can unlock the power hidden in the bonnet. Because the factory standard is not always enough.

The Volkswagen Golf has set the benchmark for hatchbacks in both performance and design. It has a clean European design and a well-functioning turbocharged engine. This makes it a popular choice not just in New Zealand but in the entire world. The Volkswagen Golf MK7 has been upgraded with a more spacious cabin. Giving the passengers more leg and elbow room aswell as a larger boot.

The Solution

The power is hidden away in the ECU. By adjusting different parameters within the ECU we can help the vehicle to perform to its full potential. This is what ECU tuning is about. With ECU tuning the car’s performance can be customized to your needs and environment. By increasing power and torque the Golk 7 will become more responsive and the driving experience will be improved. All adjustments to the ECU are done using Alientech KESS3 for the best and safest result.
