Avoid waiting around in a shop and paying for installation labor. Save time and money by shipping your ECU to us, and we'll ship it back with your new software installed.
This is the most mild tune offered for your PD TDI, but that is not to say the gains are modest. With an additional 24 horsepower and 43 lb-ft of torque, you are sure to feel the difference between stock and Malone Stage 1.
For over a decade, Mark Malone has been writing tunes for TDI engines and no other tune offers the performance, fuel economy, and exclusive features that the tunes from Malone Tuning offer. Malone tunes are not just your generic "tuning box" tunes. Tuning boxes skew OBD2 data causing the engine computer sees less accurate injection and boost data because the boxes alter them outside of the ECU. This can cause compatibility issues with VCDS and dealer scan tools. Malone tunes are 100% VW dealer and VCDS compatible and each tuning file is edited by Mark Malone himself in order to perfect each aspect of the tune to get the most out of your TDI.
The Chip & Ship tuning method can be accomplished via prepaid mail to ECS Tuning. After your purchase, you will be emailed a Next Day Air UPS label to send your ECU to ECS Tuning. ECU removal instructions for certain models can be found under "Documentation" below. Once your ECU is received, ECS Tuning will perform the chip tune and return the ECU to you within 2-3 business days. When you receive your flashed ECU, simply reinstall.
For our local customers, the Drive-In tuning method requires the vehicle to be dropped off at our Ohio facility and picked up the following business day. After your purchase, a representative will reach out and schedule a drop-off date and time with you. Secondary transportation must be arranged as ECS Tuning does not offer loaner vehicles at this time.
