THE LATEST NEWS FROM GIAC
GIAC Stage 1 software now available for the non-US 1.8T MQB platform!
GIAC Stage 1 software upgrades are now available for the non-US 1.8T MQB platform found in Audi A3, Seat Leon, Volkswagen Golf and Jetta! Stage 1 software upgrades do not require any additional hardware upgrades; however, additional hardware upgrades will allow for maximized power. GIAC software upgrades offer dramatic performance improvements over factory software, but retain factory-like drivability. On pump mode with 98 RON (93 octane), performance gains are measured at 48-55 horsepower and 60-63 ft. /lbs. (7-8 kg/m) of torque to all four wheels.
Other notable features include the following:
- properly calibrated air/fuel ratios,
- dramatically improved throttle response for a drive-by-cable system feel (throttle delay removed)
- raised speed limiters to factory redline in final drive gear
- optimized torque control for smoother, faster shifting with consistent power across all gears
Special thanks to Avihai and the team at E&A Autosport for their assistance in the development phase of this software.
