Volkswagen Golf 5 GTI ECU remap review from Superchips
The VW Golf MK5 GTI is a still a hot little item. With such easy power from stage 1, 2 or 3 tunes which can be delivered to your Bluefin software at any time, it makes for an easy and affordable ECU remapping solution. Another one hot off the press!
"The installation of the stage 1 program to the ECU was very easy. All you need to do is follow the instructions the bluefin handset told you and wait for 40 mins (20 mins to read the original ecu mapping and 20 mins to rewrite it with the stage 1 mapping). After stage 1 is remapped into the ECU, the most significant feeling is the rev has become more active once you put your foot on or off the throttle. On the other hand, you do have a feeling that brought by the higher torque once the rev reached to higher than 2500 rpm. Another better outcome is the sounds from the engine and pipes become more attractive to me, not very obvious but definitely not the same as the factory setting. I am now preparing for everything for the stage 2. Jonathan from the superchips Australia is very helpful during the whole process. I am very glad that I chose the superchips. It provides me quite pleasing upgrades to my gti especially considering its fair price. Five out of five star.
Best regards Bowei"
