VW GTI & R Peformance Upgrades

MODE Auto Concepts offers complete tuning, performance and styling upgrades for all VW GTI & R vehicles. This includes the MK6, MK7, MK7.5 Polo, Golf, Arteon & Tiguan models. MODE also caters for non GTI and R models such as the Caddy and Amarok too.

VW's popular EA888 2.0T turbocharged 4 cylinder engine is now found in many VW models and can be easily upgraded with some simple performance parts such as an intake, charge pipes, boost pipes, downpipes, exhaust system, air filters and an ECU tune or tuning box to seriously increase the performance. Gains can easily be seen from 50-100hp+ and 50-100Nm+.

Turbo charged motors become more efficient with less restrictions behind the turbo, so a free-flowing exhaust is always a great upgrade. Fitting a set of Decatted or Sport Cat Downpipes will remove most of this restriction and allow you to move up to Stage 2 or Stage 3 Tuning Options.

MODE offers exhaust systems that can retain the factory electronic exhaust valve in the exhaust system, so all your VW dynamic drive settings will work just like factory. However, if that's not for you, we also have full replacement systems that include new remote controls and smartphone apps!

Stage 2 tuned vehicles also require instalment of performance air filters, this can be done with simple and cost effective drop in air filters or a more sophisticated carbon fibre or open intake system. Different intakes will achieve different sounds and performance gains and will also vary in pricing to suit different budgets.

When it comes to tuning turbo charged vehicles, tuning the ECU will yield the most significant gains. This can be achieved through either a tuning box which can be installed by the user or an ECU Reflash which is either installed by the user with a reflash kit or by a workshop. These tunes will adjust the VW's boost pressures, fuel and timing to produce more power. Many customers like the idea of the tuning box as it can be removed at anytime and will not alter your vehicles actual ECU. However, a full ECU flash will generally produce greater horsepower and torque figures due to it's ability to increase and alter torque limiters, 02 Sensor thresholds and much more.

Our most popular performance packages include MODE PlusTrack Wheel Spacers to also increase the stance of your VW.

Along with power upgrades, the VW's suspension can be adjusted with lowering springs, height adjustable springs or coilovers, this not only improves the look of your VW but will vastly improve the vehicles handling, dynamics and performance both on the street and on the race track. Our suspension options also include those which will retain the use of your factory electronic dynamic dampening shock absorbers, so you can have your VW lowered while everything still works like factory!

Improving the stance of your VW is also very important, especially once it has been lowered. A wider track width improves performance, handling and dynamics. This can be achieved by fitting wheel spacers with extended lug bolts or a new set of wider wheels, we have a huge range of cast, flow formed, semi forged, 1-piece, 2-piece and 3-piece fully forged wheels. We can also source many other exotic brands from all over the World that are not listed, simply email us for a quote!
