    Tuning options for AGU 1.8T conversion into mk1 Golf

    Hi Guys,

    Anyone recommend any Tuning options for a AGU 1.8T for a conversion into a mk1 Golf. As its m3.8.3 this can be a limiting factor in tuning. Not looking for 300 bhp+ just a bit more than the 150 out of the box. So if you have done or know someone please share.

    Thanks

    Local tuners for the 1.8t would be APR, GIAC, UNITRONIC... depends where your located....

    If it's a generic stage 1 or stage 2 K03 tune, most people have these ready to go...

    If you want k03s or BT tune... Better preparation is needed.

    None of the above is applicable to a ME3.8

    What are you talking about exactly.... The me3.8 is the ecu in every Australian delivered mk4 golf gti, hence why I mentioned you can get flash tunes from those providers.

    I can't believe we are having this discussion in 2019.

    The me3.8 can be flashed both on the bench or within the car...Trust me I have had mine flashed tuned ..... TWICE.

    Both times by Gavin, who was a rep for Custom Code (JBS) who unfortunately does not tune mk4 golfs anymore.

    Me either.

    Waltz into an APR dealer, (GIAC/Unitronic) if you can find them and ask about flashing your ME3.8 ecu and see what happens in 2019.

    ME3.8 is dead to the world.
