AVAILABLE TUNES

IE STAGE 1
The IE Stage 1 VW Rabbit tune delivers an aggressive power upgrade without having to install any hardware modifications. Perfect for customers looking for a jump in power without adding any additional hardware. In a matter of minutes, the vehicle will be much more enjoyable to drive with a boost in performance. This tune also deals with many factory tune annoyances on the 2.5L engine such as throttle hesitation, rev hang, and response that greatly adds to drivability feel. Designed for use with regular pump 91/93 octane.

 

IE STAGE 2 (Intake Manifold)
The IE Stage 2 VW Rabbit performance flash is designed for customers looking to maximize the performance of the factory engine with an IE Performance Intake Manifold (Sold Separately). IE Stage 2 software fine-tunes the ECU calibration to match the manifold flow characteristics.  Stage 2 results deliver massive power gains across the powerband, fully realizing the 2.5L engine's potential without adding boost or high compression pistons. *IE Stage 2 & manifold tune is only for vehicles with manual transmissions and electric power steering.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

DYNOMETER OPTIMIZED
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.

REMOVED SPEED LIMITER
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.

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

IMPROVED THROTTLE RESPONSE
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.

OPTIMIZED FUELING
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.

Well worth it.
I know it's cliche to say this, but the IE Stage 1 Tune really is how the MK5 Rabbit should have come from the factory.

Throttle response is tight, idle is smoother, and that horrible rev hang is gone! I even have a few pops and crackles on deceleration in gear.

Being totally honest and realistic, there isn't a huge power gain felt, nor should one be expected. However, the drivability is simply dialed in. The higher red line really let's the MK5 work. Drivability is amazing.

I can't compare it to other tunes for the MK5 Rabbit/2.5, but I can tell you I am completely happy.

Disclosure - My current set up is:
IE's Cold Air Intake
MK6 Intake Manifold
MK6 Exhaust Manifold
Stock Catalytic Converter
Magnaflow Muffler #10435
