MK5 FSI Stage 2 Kit Overview
This complete MK5 GTI Stage 2 kit offers a complete all-inclusive power upgrade by combining IE's top of the line performance hardware with the matching Stage 2 motorsport-inspired ECU tune. You will enjoy track-ready performance while retaining factory comfort and reliability. At the core of this kit is the IE PowerLink cable, providing an easy interface to upload your new tune and maximize the performance of your 2.0T GTI. To take full advantage of the increased boost, airflow is increased with an IE 3" downpipe and IE Cold Air Intake. Air inlet temperatures are kept low and heat soak at bay with the industry-leading FDS intercooler system. These modifications combine and release the true monster hidden in your bay.
Installing the complete IE Stage 2 Kit delivers massive power gains across the powerband, fully realizing the engine and stock turbocharger potential with typical power gains around +55-65HP & 80-90TQ (ft-lbs) over stock.
*Power figures were measured at the hub performed on a hub dynamometer, power figures are taken from multiple vehicles. Power gains may differ from advertised as individual vehicles will vary in maintenance, mileage, and conditions. HP=horsepower, TQ= Torque ft-lbs.
Included In Kit
IE Stage 2 Tune
The IE Stage 2 MK5 GTI performance tune is designed to maximize the performance of the factory engine and turbocharger. Fine tuning the ECU calibration to match installed aftermarket hardware, IE Stage 2 delivers massive power gains across the powerband. IE engineers have fully optimized every aspect of the factory ECU maps along with removed speed limiter, increased rev limit, improved throttle response, optimized fueling and more. This produces a tune that retains all factory like driving and safety protocols when needed, and intense power when you put the pedal down.
IE PowerLink Tool
The IE PowerLink Flash Tool allows you to quickly upload your tune from your own garage or driveway. This OBD plug-in device is easy to use with a Windows 7 and newer laptop and WiFi connection. Your new tool also includes the ability to switch between multiple octane files (available separately), reading and clearing diagnostic codes, upgrading Stages, or flashing back to stock at any time.
IE 3" Catted Downpipe
Power you can feel and hear! The IE 3" catted downpipe frees the turbocharger of its factory exhaust restrictions allowing it to make the additional horsepower, torque, and responsiveness. Careful tuning of the new harmonics delivers an aggressive exhaust noise while minimizing cabin drone. All IE exhaust systems are designed in-house using state of the art digital scanning for a perfect fit and manufactured from 1.5mm thick wall 304 stainless steel offering a lifetime of performance and fun.
IE Cold Air Intake
IE's direct-fit high-flow air Intake is included to supply cold air directly to the turbocharger via generously-sized inlet pipe and massive 5" velocity stack. The velocity stack is neatly housed in a heat shield, which separates the air filter from the hot under-hood air, allowing only cold air directly from the front of the car.
IE FDS Intercooler
When increasing the power output of your engine to Stage 2 or beyond, it is critical to ensure proper charge air cooling, reducing power robbing and dangerous heat soak. The included direct-fit IE intercooler packs a very large core into the space available, a full 54% larger stock. To utilize this massive core, our engineers developed a row of FDS (Flow Distribution System) fins cast into the end tank that forces intake air to take full advantage of the large core. This system, completely unique to IE, has proven to offer the lowest intake air temps, pressure drop, and most performance on the market.
