Fuel Pump - 2.0T and 3.0TFSI

This kit allows for more low pressure fuel delivery, in a variety of high fuel demand situations. It increases the flow rate of the low pressure fuel system before the regulator by over 250 liters per hour. Some GIAC supported applications perform best with a low pressure fuel pump upgrade, while other applications we support can use it to run a little more E85 with improved performance and driveability. Previously, one of our "K04 Extreme" customers added the fuel pump kit, without any other hardware of software changes and improved his 1/4 time by 3/10ths of a second at almost 4mph faster.

Hand Held Flashloader Switcher

GIAC's Flashloader Handheld Switcher allows users to switch between GIAC-tuned software programs with the touch of a button. The product is a pocket-sized,hand-held device that plugs directly into the OBD port. It uses serial flashing technology and requires no additional hardware within the DME.

Switching is performed by selecting the desired mode with the touch buttons. Cycling the ignition will save the new mode to the ECU's memory and retain its state until switched again.
