For users with access to a prepped surface or with drag radials/slicks who think they can handle a bit more on the launch, not only do we have ECU calibrations with increased torque on launch available, but you can utilize our Adjustable Launch Control to choose between 3500rpm and 4000rpm setpoints. The higher 4000rpm launch control setpoint is engaged with the kickdown button at the end of the accelerator pedal travel. It’s important to note that it doesn’t stop here for our development team as we’re committed and anxiously looking forward to getting the dev cars back to the track in the near future to continue to push onward in our never-ending pursuit to further improve on our results and welcome feedback, data, and information from our customers all over the globe.
Unitronic’s Carbon Fiber Intake System and Air Duct is now available for the MK8 GTI with MK8 Golf R and 8Y S3 fitment coming soon. This complete system optimizes airflow, improves throttle response and enhances turbo induction sounds while providing seamless integration and an aggressive carbon fiber presence in the engine bay. Also available for these new vehicles is Unitronic’s Intercooler Upgrade which provides a dramatic reduction in charge air temperatures to ensure peak performance is achieved and sustained while resisting heat-soak after repeated efforts and in harsh climates and conditions.
ECU SOFTWARE FEATURES
Optimized Responsiveness, Smoothness, Drivability, and Comfort
Unitronic’s ECU calibrations are engineered to improve engine response and reduce low-end lag. Unitronic’s Performance Software has gained worldwide recognition and is well known for its broad powerband, with smooth power delivery, maximizing responsiveness and “area under the curve”, under normal and hard acceleration.
Ignition Timing Precisely Calibrated for Higher Octane Fuel
Engine calibration optimized to take advantage of higher fuel quality to extract maximum energy from the combustion. Therefore, when using a higher octane fuel, more power and better fuel efficiency will be achieved.
Optimized Maximum Output
Unitronic’s ECU Calibrators deliver the maximum power output while staying within the operational limits of the factory engine and drivetrain components. Specifically, this results in the highest engine performance without sacrificing the reliability of the engine, turbocharger, or other engine and drivetrain components.
Factory Safety Limiters Retained
OEM “fail safes” are retained within the ECU calibration. Close monitoring of all operation parameters ensures that engine operation stays within factory components limits, resulting in reliability.
Power Delivery Perfectly Optimized Throughout the Power Band
Aligned with the OEM strategy, the calibration is designed to offer a large flat torque plateau to provide a smooth and linear power band. Maximum torque output is achieved sooner and maintained longer which creates a broader torque plateau and greater area under the curve. This results in an improved acceleration and optimal engine operation.
Speed Governor Removed
Vehicle speed limiter within ECU is removed. (Subject to transmission rotational speed limit.)
Improved Fuel Efficiency
Optimized timing and injection in cruising condition allows for an improved fuel efficiency, under normalized driving conditions.
Engineered with Strict Industry Standards
With over 10 years of experience with Bosch and Siemens engine management systems and calibrations, Unitronic is able to utilize its expertise, industry leading tools and equipment to ensure an optimal calibration; delivering maximum performance, while maintaining complete OEM-like reliability and drivability.
Extensively Tested Under Various Driving Conditions
Development begins using Unitronic’s in-house Maha Chassis dyno housed in an environmentally controlled cell; closely monitoring a plethora of operational data, utilizing industry leading calibration tools and resources. Beta calibrations are then tested in street and track scenarios, using multiple cars under various driving conditions. This engine calibration strategy ensures Unitronic Performance Software delivers maximum performance, OEM-like drivability and reliability anywhere in the world. Unitronic Performance Software is only released to its Clients once development is thoroughly completed in accordance to Unitronic’s strict standards.
