PCM Plug and Play Stage 1 Tune
Racingline PCM Plug and Play Stage 1 Tune For VW MK8 GTI
Frustrating, isn’t it? The latest generation of 2.0 TSI ‘gen.4’ MQB EVO cars cannot yet be tuned via the traditional methods. PCM is RacingLine’s new tuning solution, developed exclusively for these cars such as Golf mk8 GTI, Golf mk8 R, Audi S3 8Y, Cupra Leon & Octavia vRS. PCM stands for ‘Power Control Module’ and is our way of bringing your new MQB EVO car to life with more power and torque. Easily installed, and easily removed at any time without a trace.
Superpowers For Your Car
Expect power increases of up to 40HP and 36ft/lbs torque with supporting RacingLine hardware over the factory quoted numbers. Not only that, but it’s beautifully smooth and progressive gains, right throughout the rev-range.
Two versions of PCM are available, to suit either the higher or lower output versions of the EA888 gen.4 engines. (This product page is for the VW MK8 GTI/Audi A3)
PCM works on a standalone PCB, which communicates with the factory ECU. Developed by RacingLine’s own in-house calibration experts over the past 12 months, it allows the car to safely increase power and torque levels. Of course, we know that many customers will want to have a full ECU calibration as soon as it’s available – and who can blame them?
So uniquely, RacingLine will give any PCM customer a free upgrade to our OEM+ calibrations as soon as they are available, whenever you are ready – as long as you purchase your PCM unit from USP Motorsports.
Too good to be true? Not with PCM by RacingLine.
RacingLine’s PCM controller is a leap forward for the latest MQB ‘evo’ 2.0 TSI cars. It’s all about the 12 months of detailed development that’s gone into PCM. The PCM itself is housed in a stunning billet aluminium case, finned to ensure effective cooling plus a beautiful carbon fibre mounting bracket to locate it securely on top of the battery. The full install kit includes a wiring loom made to the perfect length for the MQB ‘evo’ cars. And an instant power boost is only one of the advantages:
Power Gains: Power increases of up to 40HP and 36ft/lbs torque with supporting RacingLine hardware versus the factory quoted outputs.
Easy Fit: Just three easy connections into the wiring loom, and premade brackets for perfect, simple fitting.
Beautiful Driveability: We’ve been developing and testing PCM for the 2.0 TSI EA888.4 engines for over a year now
Free Upgrades: The really neat part? Purchase your PCM from USP Motorsports, and when our OEM+ calibrations become available, you will get your upgrades for free.
Full MQB “EVO” Install Kit: CNC machined housing, carbon fibre battery mounting bracket, perfect-fit wiring harness and matching mounting hardware.
Remove With Ease: Should you ever wish to remove it, PCM leaves no trace on the car.
How PCM Works:
PCM runs our in-house calibration on a standalone PCB, operating in parallel with the factory ECU, allowing us to find the sweet spot for engine performance, drivability and safety. And of course, a valuable power and torque boost.
Can I install at home?
PCM has a simple, plug and play installation, providing you have a basic level of mechanical knowledge. The PCM unit sits above the battery, using the provided carbon fiber battery mount and hardware, while the wiring harness is plugged into existing sensors found at the top of the engine.
