Best remap for standard GTi ....
« on: November 20, 2021, 11:55:37 am »
Hi Guys,
My standard Mk5 GTi has no mods, just had existing K03 Turbo refurbished as a precaution and all standard engine parts refreshed (coil packs, plugs, DV, intercooler seals etc). Car has done 82k

I am tempted to have a Stage 1 remap - more for better drive-ability and throttle response than outright power gains.

Can anyone suggest a good remap ? I live on the South Coast near Eastbourne - although happy to drive a reasonable distance to a Tuner.

Any advice welcome - thks

You could try qst tuning in Haywards heath or JKM in Portsmouth.

My mk5 gti was remapped by EST performance who are just 20 mins from you in Hailsham. The map was paid for by the previous owner around 18 months ago and i haven't had any issues. Might be worth checking them out. However I would say that if It was me I would be making the trip up to r tech just for peace of mind as they seem to be so well regarded with these engines.
