The IE Stage 1 VW CC 2.0T (EA888 Gen 2 TSI) tune delivers an aggressive power upgrade without having to install any hardware modifications. Perfect for customers looking for a big jump in power without adding any additional hardware. In a matter of minutes, the vehicle will be much more enjoyable to drive with a massive boost in performance.
For customers looking to maximize the performance of the stock engine and turbo setups with bolt-on hardware, IE Stage 2 software fine-tunes the ECU calibration to match installed aftermarket hardware.  Stage 2 results deliver massive power gains across the powerband, fully realizing the engine and stock turbocharger potential. *See additional hardware tab for Stage 2 hardware requirements.



IE's own in-house developed POWERlink cable gives you the control to unlock your engine’s true potential from your own garage or driveway. Enjoy the freedom to quickly reflash your car’s engine control unit (ECU) or transmission control unit (TCU) with IE’s line of performance tunes. The cable simply plugs into your vehicle’s OBD-2 port delivering instant access to choose different IE Tune stages to match installed hardware, take advantage of different fuel octanes, flash back to stock, perform engine diagnostics, read/clear codes and gather high-quality operating data via logging.

Simply plug your IE POWERlink cable into your vehicle’s OBD-II port and the USB port on your Windows-powered laptop to use the included IE Flash Wizard software. 

Upgrading to Stage 2 or beyond is easy! You only pay the difference in cost between the files with no additional or hidden fees. Upgrade at any time.

Many IE Tunes have multiple options available for you to take advantage of higher octanes. Gain big power by flashing 93, 100, or 104 octane versions of your file.

Easily gather simple to read ECU data for fast troubleshooting with our pre-loaded data logging option.

Have a friend with a compatible VW or Audi? Share the power with up to 5 different cars with a single cable. Just add enough credits to your cable for the desired tune and power-up your entire crew.

With the IE POWERlink, you can return your vehicle back to 100% original ECU programming at any time.

IE will always provide free software updates as they become available and easily reflashed through your IE POWERlink cable. 

Laptop or tablet with Wifi connection and USB port running Windows 7 or above operating system required. Powered by 32 or 64 bit processor with 1.0GHz or greater and 4GB of Ram.



IE's own easy to use Flash Wizard Software allows the IE POWERlink Tool to communicate with your vehicle's ECU to flash software tunes, upgrade, update, data log, or read/write codes. The software download is included with your tune/cable purchase and operates on any Windows 7+ powered laptop or tablet. The software is very simple to use and once installed will walk you through the fast tuning process to deliver instant horsepower. 




After completely reverse engineering the factory ECU, our engineers use our in-house Dynapack DP42 dynamometer to perform repeated runs to test each change that is made to the software and confirm drivability in any situation. This ensures IE performance software delivers massive horsepower and torque increases across the entire powerband. Using our in-house dyno and advanced tuning tools, IE engineers have fully optimized every aspect of the factory ECU mapping on many different vehicles. This produces a tune that retains all factory like driving and safety protocols when needed, and an intense surge of power when you want it.

The factory ECU speed limiter has been removed to make sure the increased power and torque can be used to its full potential on straightaways and drag strips.

With the significant power increase, the rev limiter is also increased to allow a wider powerband on all IE VW CC files. By increasing the rev limit, you gain a perfect match for the increased performance available from your new IE performance software tune.

To further increase the responsive feel of the car, IE engineers have carefully adjusted the throttle sensitivity. This offers a more connected feeling to your car with plenty of power available right beneath your foot.

All IE tunes have been adjusted to run as economically as possible, dialing in air/fuel ratios to exactly where they need to be. With an IE performance ECU flash, it is common to see increased fuel economy under cruising and part-throttle driving.

Impeccable Engineering
Purchased the Stage 2 for my 2014 CC. Im running APR carbon fiber cold air intake, IE down pipe and MagnaFlow out the back. After topping it off with there IE tune has made me feel like i should be doing a cameo on the Fast & Furious! I didn't realize a 2.0 TSI four banger can go any faster! Hands down i sincerely believe this company has the passion and knowledge to make any car enthuses smile all the way too the finish line. Keep up the good work!

Perfection in every single way
Like everybody said, the tune and customer support is just top notch, there wasn't a tune for my 15 CC at the moment but Damon and Peter took care of the situation in Formula1 pit stop time, the car only has stage 1 so far, waiting for clutch and downpipe for stage 2, but stage 1 it surprises people of how quick it is, the mpg went up by a noticeable amount, and the powerlink flash tool and the program it's just something amazing, IE takes the tuning game to a new level. Thanks to the IE crew keep that good work up.
