Fuel Requirements:

Each map lists the minimum required octane. A higher octane fuel can be used safely on a map designed for lower octane. DO NOT use maps designed for higher octane with lower octane fuels. Top Tier gasoline should be used where available.

  • Maps designated with "91 OCT or 95 RON " are for use with 91 and 92 octane/95 RON fuel or better.

  • Maps designated with "93 OCT or 98 RON" are for use with 93 octane/98 RON fuel or better.

    • 94 octane with 0% Ethanol should run the ACN91 Map.

 

Running 0% Ethanol Fuels

These maps are designed for E10 fuel (fuel with 10% ethanol content). For those who only have access to E0 fuel (fuel with 0% ethanol) it is recommended to use the "91" and "ACN91" octane versions of the maps and datalog the car to ensure your fuel is performing to the necessary level. This is especially important for those using Canadian 94 octane E0 fuel. 



 



Stage1 Power Output

Stage 1

CARB EO: D-660-37

  • Intake Requirements : 

  • Exhaust Requirements: Stock exhaust or upgraded cat-back exhaust

  • Boost Target:

    • 91 Octane 95 RON Minimum: ~21 psi peak boost pressure tapering down to 16~ psi as you approach the 6800RPM redline, +/- ~1.5psi.

    • 93 Octane 98 RON Minimum: ~22 psi peak boost pressure tapering down to ~16psi as you approach the 6800RPM redline, +/- ~1.5psi.


Stage1+Flex Fuel

E## refers to the ethanol content (E) in % (##). So in the case of E10, it is 10% ethanol (Pump gas is typically between 7 & 15%)

Stage 1+Flex Fuel

Peak Power is achieved at 30% ethanol content

  • Intake Requirements : 

  • Exhaust Requirements: Stock exhaust or upgraded cat-back exhaust

  • Fueling Requirements: COBB Flex Fuel Upgrade Kit 3V2650

  • Boost Target:

    • 91 Octane 95 RON Minimum: ~21 psi peak boost pressure tapering down to 16~ psi as you approach the 6800RPM redline, +/- ~1.5psi.

    • 93 Octane 98 RON Minimum: ~22 psi peak boost pressure tapering down to ~16psi as you approach the 6800RPM redline, +/- ~1.5psi.

    • Ethanol: As much as an additional 2psi peak boost pressure with the most at 30% ethanol (E30)


Stage2 Power Output

Stage 2

CARB EO: D-660-39

  • Intake Requirements : 

  • Exhaust Requirements: Stock exhaust or upgraded cat-back exhaust

  • Intercooler: AMS Performance Front Mount Intercooler Golf R (CARB under D-825-3)

  • Drivetrain: Upgraded Clutch or DSG Software Recommended

  • Boost Target: 

    • 91 Octane 95 RON Minimum: ~24 psi peak boost pressure tapering down to ~19 psi as you approach the 6800RPM redline, +/- ~1.5psi.

    • 93 Octane 98 RON Minimum: ~25 psi peak boost pressure tapering down to ~21 psi as you approach the 6800RPM redline, +/- ~1.5psi.

 



Non-Performance Maps

Anti-Theft Mode

  • Will not allow vehicle to start



Valet

  • Fuel Requirements: 91 octane or better

  • Intake Requirements: Stock airbox and stock air filter
