EQT ECU Tuning Results/Power Estimates

This is a question asked all too frequently, and while we’d love to give you a specific number, there are many variables involved that can affect dyno results. Even taking the car’s modifications out of the equation, there are other variables such as weather, elevation, fuel quality, dyno type, dyno fan setup, etc. that come into play. With that being said, these are ranges that most vehicles will see, given standard modifications and reasonable conditions:

  •  Stage 1 GTI/A3 - 270-310whp
     Stage 1 Golf R/S3 - 300-360whp
  • Stage 2: GTI/A3 - 300-340whp
    Stage 2 Golf R/S3 - 330-390whp

Here are just a couple of examples of our tunes. Please note that these results were acquired on our Dynocom chassis dyno in 2WD mode and close to optimal conditions. Dyno numbers can vary greatly depending on dyno type and conditions.   

Here are graphs of results from our latest Staged Tunes for the Golf R/S3:

DSG Instructions

World Market / Rest of World DSG Support

It was recently brought to our attention by Cobb that there are some issues with supportability of World Market / Rest of World TCM ID’s or “box codes”. Some of these TCM’s in world market vehicles will have the proper base TCM ID, however their software loads are incompatible with Cobb’s released software. Cobb is aware of the issue and is working to bring support to affected world market vehicles, but we are unaware of timing for this to be resolved.

In light of this, we cannot guarantee support for world market DSG tuning at this time. If you are unsure what this means to you, please reach out to us before placing your order.

*Results may vary. Power as tested using these identical calibrations. Generally speaking, the 91 octane calibration has a richer fuel curve and a less aggressive ignition advance map to help compensate for 91 octane fuel and/or less than ideal atmospheric conditions. The map designed for 93 octane is the most aggressive.

    Simplest Tuning/Logging Device I've Ever Used

    This was one of the simplest tuning processes I've been through. Without knowing much about the AP, it's very accessible. Took me about 20 minutes from start to finish to copy files/flash the ECU with the new maps. I've had it a few months now, and I've already made use of the simple option switch and octane upgrades as I mod my car piece by piece. I got the tune changes/upgrades unbelievably quick as well. I've already had two friends switch or tune their cars with EQT. In a sea of companies failing their own SLA's, EQT continues to improve. Thanks!

    Love Equilibrium Tuning

    Overall I'm happy to have purchased the EQT tuning. Even for a OTS tune, the timing is so much better up top than the Unitronic tune which I had previously. I just wish that COBB AP wasn't so ancient. For $700, it should be a touch screen, does not stay mounted because the sticky material is so cheaply made, overall I cannot have more than one gauge displaying when logging. If EQT made their own version of the AP, I would replace it in a heartbeat

    Works great and sounds great! This is for my daily. I was looking for something lower tone and with burbles in sport mode. Only loud when I want it to be. It will let me transition along several tunes as I add on parts, with no need to visit a shop each time.
