    15% off all SpecTunes Christmas Sale



    15% off all SpecTunes Christmas Sale. Valid until the end of 2014.

    This is a good chance to increase the performance of your car at a great price. Switchable Tunes and return to factory tune, read and delete fault codes, update and upgrade tunes as you make modifications with our ECU Tune Builder.

    Click here for more information

    Please note that Tarmac Engineering is closed from the 24th of December and will reopen on the 5th of January but don't worry, our online shop will remain open during this period and all orders will be posted out in the week of January the 5th. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and ask you to please stay safe on the roads

    Below is a guide of performance stages we go through to increase the power and torque of your vehicle. A "Stage" reference has become the industry standard measure of modification and expected power output. Whilst we tune specifically to your modifications this guide is a good way of breaking up the modifications into sections. Each Stage should provide an increase in power and/or torque.

    Please note that power outputs below are measured at the Engines flywheel as per factory specification. The Dyno Graphs are calculated at the wheels on a roller dynometer that takes into account drive losses.

    Stage 1

    SpecTune ECU Re map

    An excellent way to start increasing the performance of your car. With an increase in power from 188kw peak flywheel power to 232kw and excellent mid range torque you will wonder why it wasn't like this from the factory.



    Stage 1.5

    SpecTune ECU Remap + Intake

    Let your engine breathe. We believe this is the best "bang for buck" performance modification. Power is increased to 240kw peak power and 420nm peak Torque. The torque curve is greatly increased in the mid to top rpm range and not only that the power comes on faster down low. This is our most popular choice.



    Stage 2

    SpecTune ECU Remap + Intake + Dump Pipe

    The factory dump pipe is very restrictive and now that you're letting the turbo and engine breathe better with an intake you really want to let the other side of the turbo breathe. By getting those exhaust gases out faster we can make the intake even more effective which in turn allows more boost, more fuel and more ignition timing equaling more power and torque. The Power is increased to 255kw peak power and 480nm peak torque. This will provide a huge rush off the line and carry that power through to the redline.

    At this point our intercooler helps with performance



    Stage 2.5

    SpecTune ECU Remap + Intake + Dump Pipe + HPFP (high pressure fuel pump) + HPRV (high pressure rail valve)

    This is for the person that wants as much power as possible out of the 2.0 TFSI engine without changing the turbo. Now that you have the Intake + Dump Pipe we need to add more fuel so we can add more ignition timing and boost. This will increase the power to 270kw peak power and 500nm peak Torque. Now you have a seriously quick street car. . A CAT back exhaust can also be added, we see a small top end gain but this is more about getting your desired exhaust note



    Stage 1

    SpecTune ECU Re map

    An excellent way to start increasing the performance of your car. With an increase in power from 150kw peak flywheel power to 190kw and excellent mid range torque of 400nm you will wonder why it wasn't like this from the factory.



    Stage 1.5

    SpecTune ECU Remap + Intake

    Let your engine breathe. We believe this is the best "bang for buck" performance modification. Power is increased to 202kw peak power and 405nm peak Torque. Throttle response is improved down low and power is carried through for longer at high rpm. This is our most popular choice.



    Stage 2

    SpecTune ECU Remap + Intake + Dump Pipe

    The factory dump pipe is very restrictive and now that you're letting the turbo and engine breathe better with an intake you need to let the other side of the turbo flow more. By getting those exhaust gases out faster we can make the intake even more effective which in turn allows more boost, more fuel and more ignition timing equaling more power and torque. The Power is increased to 222kw peak power and 430nm peak torque. This will provide a huge rush off the line and carry that power through to the redline.

    At this point our intercooler helps with more consistant performance

    Great savings, massive gains!

    Just wondering if Ben is still alive? There's rumors APR offered him a cushy desk job in the Bahamas....
    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.

    Sweeeet. Mk6 2L 103TDI Tune? I was under the impression they had to be bench tuned? Also, do you guys do DSG tuning as well?

    We can do them via OBDII but not via OBDII with the SpecTune controller. DSG can also be done via the laptop
