Volkswagen is one of the largest German automotive brands in the European and global market. Indeed, this manufacturer is known for the robustness and reliability of these engines, which are characteristics of the of German manufacturing in this sector.
However, for the sake of compliance with the standards in force in the automotive industry, most models have the power of their motors limited and restricted from achieving their full potential. For fans of speed it is not necessary to change the engine.The chiptuning of the Volkswagen engine remains the best possible alternative because it is inexpensive and very effective.
Advantages of chiptuning a Volkswagen engine:
The chiptuning of the engine consists of chiptuning the cartography of the computer. The calculator is an electronic box that deals with Volkswagen engine management and control. In practice the garage technician accesses the computer via a cable connected to a computer and then modifies its original mapping with a software file.
The new mapping is characterized by a set of modified or optimized parameters which has the effect of removing some limiters and changing among others: the ignition and the fuel curve injected into the engine. This operation has the advantage of increasing the power and engine torque of the Volkswagen. Thus, chiptuning the engine improves the performance of Volkswagen running on gasoline or diesel. Indeed, we can observe especially for diesel models:
- A gain in power and torque respectively close to 50 C.V and 50%
- Fuel consumption reduced by up to 25%, with the added bonus of eliminating the various limiters, in particular that of the maximum speed.
Nevertheless, chiptuning requires a good knowledge of the operation of Volkswagen injection engines, and a good use of the specific software for efficiency in terms of performance and longevity of the engine.
