Thread: 5N Tiguan with IE Tune

  1. #11

    Interesting read! I'm keen to go stage 2, but hesitating a bit since I don't have/want to upgrade the IC on my 155TSI!

    What sorta modifications were required to make the dp fit?

    Bit of heat & bending, manipulation around the driveshaft etc. Got a shop to do it for me, broken exhaust stud slowed things up a bit. One of the exh.hangers isn't fully seated into position but otherwise ok.
    Stage 2 tune is brilliant, so much pull to it. The 132tsi is seriously quick. DSG now responds best in S-mode, its like it was made for it Nice in cruise with great response to the throttle.
    Going to enjoy driving it for now.
    Eventually will have HD swaybars, and maybe coilovers and mags.

    You don't have to upgrade you IC if you go stage 2 but if you do you will see a greater improvement if you do. The 155 runs a slightly bigger (same as GTI) intercooler as standard so you won't be as badly off as (say) a 125TSI which runs a smaller/narrower core.

    True. I must have misread the text, it only says highly recommended. My bad.

    Although according to the product page on the dubaddiction website, an IE transmission tune is required. You wouldn't know anything about that?

    Yeah if you want to maximise the result on stage 2 then the intercooler is required.

    In terms of DSG tune I think you'd be fine with running a stock DSG file. Generally the tune increases the clamping pressure so that you can run higher torque. The only downside of this is that it can be a bit more "grabby" and not as smooth as stock shifting. If you ever get clutch slippage then you definitely need to get the tune before you cook your clutches.

    I would have thought it would only be necessary if you upgraded the turbo, but talk to your tuner and see what they say.

    Cheers Tigger. Although the car was purchased new, it's quiet a few years old now. The cost to go stage 2 (tune, controller, dp, IC, trans tune) seems to be getting more and more when the cars realistic value is $15k maybe?
