This kit does not include Software/ECU
Modification or any fueling methods.
ATP will continue to provide a limited amount of special tunes for certain
ECU codes, but these software requests should be made separately and independently
of the sale of these hardware kits. Based upon feedback received from our
customers in the recent months, this hardware needed to be offered separately
in order to allow our customers to explore the various boost/fueling/tuning
Based upon the test data and the way we have seen
this turbo combination respond on the 1.8T engine, we believe that the 1.8T
powerplant with this combination will be VERY competitive in year 2004. For
people who crave HP levels up to the 350 range and are very sensitive to the
“lag” in the GT30R found in the Stage III/IV kit. This is the
answer to the desire for “Big HP with Quick Spool”.
With a good exhaust system, 300 whp can be done on modest boost levels and
pump gas. We have managed close to 350 whp on one setup with just a drop-in
fuel pump upgrade and 2.50" exhaust. [Dyno] [Installation Instructions]
