VW Polo 6C 1.0TSI 95hp - Etuners Stage2 95ron

Please meet the VW Polo 6C 1.0TSI Bluemotion. It has the smallest turbocharged engine in the Volkswagen/Audi group, both in number of cylinders -just 3- and in horsepower output. With just 95hp it needs a little bit of help to improve its performance. Specially because it is equipped with a super long gearbox. It is efficient on the highway but impossible to accelerate and overtake quickly.

There are two identical versions of the 1.0TSI engine: 95hp and 110hp. We thought we should assist the Lilliputian version by reducing backpressure, then proceeding with a tune. A cat-back exhaust system was installed with increased diameter, equipped with straight-through mufflers in the exact position and volume as the stock mufflers. The front of the exhaust and the catalytic converter remained the same,  to ensure conformity to environmental regulations and MOT checks.

A custom Etuners Stage2 was flashed onto the ECU, improving fuelling, ignition and allowing the engine to boost up to 1.2bars (from 0.6bar as stock).  A combined gain of 42hp was achieved and road performance is much better than stock now.
