The perfect combination

Optimize your VW with RaceChip

VW is the largest German vehicle manufacturer and number two worldwide. The motto for “das Auto” is to embody the best of German quality and innovation in every vehicle. Here at RaceChip we have developed the same quality and innovation standards for customized tuning solutions that VW itself places on its vehicles. The perfect combination for your VW.

Hardly any other manufacturer combines such a broad range of models with such a lasting string of success with models like the Polo, Golf and Passat, which have continued to show up at the top of registration statistics for decades.

Today, RaceChip offers performance improvement via chip tuning for almost all VW models. Regardless whether saloon, coupé or CC, cabriolet or Alltrack, sports van or SUV, bus or pickup.

Electronic power improvement for your VW

Chip tuning from RaceChip takes your VW driving experience to a whole new level that you'll never want to give up. This is how a vehicle with premium standards in every segment should drive

Engine tuning from RaceChip is the most advanced method of electronic performance improvement for your VW, whether Up!, Polo, Golf, Beetle, Scirocco, Jetta, Touran, Tiguan, Eos, Passat, CC, Phaeton, Sharan, Touareg, Caddy, Multivan, California or Amarok. In a few easy steps, you can install our ultra-modern auxiliary device – a type of mini-computer with optimization software designed by RaceChip for your engine that operates between the engine controls and sensors. The now optimized electronic signals that control the engine give it a power increase of up to 30% more HP and up to 30% more Nm torque.

RaceChip uses the same technological principles for engine tuning as those used by the developers at VW itself in order to differentiate VW models with various performance levels all on the same engine block. In this way, VW today can use the same 2.0 TDI base to get a performance range of 140 to 177 HP, primarily the result of electronic adjustments.

Here at RaceChip we ensure that the performance improvement always stays within the thermal and mechanical limits—in other words only within your engine's power reserves.What’s more, your VW's engine protection systems remain fully intact after installing our tuning box.

Experience das Auto in a whole new way: more power, more dynamism, more driving fun

No matter which VW you drive, whether TDI or TSI, BlueMotion or 4Motion, you won't recognise your Volkswagen after RaceChip chip tuning. Here are just a few of many examples:

In the most frequently used VW diesel today, the 2.0 TDI engine with standard 150 HP in the latest version (like in the T5 Bus, Tiguan, Passat and Golf VII), power zooms to over 180 HP and you'll reach 400 Nm and more of torque with all of our chip tuning modules.

The 2.0 TDI in the Golf VI features 140 HP and 320 Nm torque. However, even after many miles of driving you can unleash a hefty portion of additional driving fun in this used diesel. Even with the One or Pro 2, you'll boost power to almost 180 HP and, in the case of the Pro 2, over 180 HP.

Even the Golf GTD has much more to offer than the standard 184 HP and 380 Nm. With RaceChip you'll have an exhilarating 231 HP and 483 Nm for power and dynamic in your own league. This puts the GTD on a compact sports car level that previously only GTI petrol engines could offer in this price segment.

With RaceChip One, the Amarok and its 2.0 BiTDI transforms from a comfortable pickup into a stout athlete with 219 HP and powerful 525 Nm, ideal for heavy loads and hauling trailers.

The “smaller” 1.6 TDI in a new Polo grows a power size or two with RaceChip: from standard 105 HP to an impressive 132 HP.

With RaceChip you can turn sporty into super-sporty: A current Golf GTI model suddenly has an additional 52 HP and now offers 272 HP. The Golf GTI R reaches an irresistible 363 HP with RaceChip Ultimate. You won't have to catch up to anyone with this fast combination.

The Passat CC with 2.0 TSI engine can show what it really has with RaceChip, easily blazing the streets with 261 HP. This makes a family weekend excursion truly a fun ride. You'll get more than one amazed look when you zoom away from traffic lights.

The Phaeton with 3.0 TDI and 245 HP no longer just glides along like a champ; with 310 HP and 599 Nm it shows off its true potential for power and dynamic on the road.

Help differentiating CR/PD

Distinguishing between Common Rail (CR)
and Unit Injector (PD)

Applicable to certain Volkswagen AG model series with 2.0 TDI engines

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology. RaceChip chiptuning is specially customized to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

PerformanceThe following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable:Engine code CREngine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.
