IE PowerLINK V2 OBD Cable

IE PowerLINK V2 OBD Cable


Item #: IESOVU4



The Integrated Engineering PowerLINK V2 tuning cable allows easy ECU programming from the comfort of your garage. This OBD plug-in device is easy-to-use with a Windows powered laptop to read and write files from your ECU.  With the ability to flash multiple files, you can easily recalibrate the ECU for different octane settings or boost levels. The PowerLINK V2 cable is also capable of reading and clearing diagnostic codes as well as allowing the car to be flashed back to stock with the stock file that it pulls from the ECU on the first read. 


To load files to your vehicle's ECU with the PowerLINK V2 cable, you will simply connect the cable to a Windows XP/7/8 equipped computer and install the included PowerLINK V2 software and follow the directions on the screen. Once you read and email IE the OE ECU file, our engineers will calibrate the requested tune file for your ECU and return the tuned file to you. The downloaded tuned file(s) that you have purchased from Integrated Engineering can then be flashed to the vehicle with the IE PowerLINK cable and software, again following the flash directions on screen. No external power is required for any functions, as it draws power through the connected laptop.


The IE PowerLINK V2 cable eliminates the need for a 3rd party tuning shop to flash your car, saving expensive install fees and time to take it in for the reflash. It allows total control of the ECU tune, allowing you to flash completely different files on the ECU within 10-15 minutes. Also, if you decide to purchase a new file from Integrated Engineering in the future, it will be provided via email, saving downtime.

Will the IE PowerLINK device work with my car?
The IE PowerLINK V2 cable will work for all MK6 Golf R, and MK5 FSI engines. At this time, no other applications are supported but will be in the future.

The PowerLink V2 cable is configured to load IE performance software only.

Can I adjust the tune with the IE PowerLINK V2 cable?
The PowerLINK V2 cable does not allow you to custom tune the ECU, but that saves you time and hassle. The IE performance ECU software is designed to run flawlessly, just like OEM, but with additional power and features.

How do I use the IE PowerLINK V2 cable to load IE software?
Once you receive the tuned files that you have purchased, you can simply plug the PowerLINK V2 cable into your PC and OBD2 port on the vehicle and launch the included PowerLINK V2 software to load the files. This process is very simple and only takes a few minutes.

Once I have read the stock file from my ECU, how do I obtain the IE tuned files?
Once your stock file has been sent to IE for tuning, we will have the tuned file(s) emailed back to you within 24 hours. We cannot send the tuned files until we receive the stock file, however.
