TVS ECU Software Stages

Nowadays TVS Engineering is able to offer software solutions for every VAG engine application categorized into five different ECU software Stages! These are divided in different performance levels, supporting various fuel grades and are suitable for both with or without any hardware modifications.

  • Stage I
  • Stage II
  • Stage II+
  • Stage III
  • Stage IV

TVS ECU Stage I software is the first small step into increased performance! It is characterized as a mild increase in power and torque and especially suitable for upgrading similar engines produced with different power outputs. TVS introduced this low budget solution to make TVS ECU software affordable for everyone!

  • 100% Stock Engine
  • Engine & Gearbox diagnostics
  • TVS Custom ECU software Stage I
  • Data analyzing and fine-tuning
  • TVS optional ECU features included
  • Engine modifications
  • Dyno run and dynosheet

TVS ECU Stage II software is the first real step into increasing performance! Hereby maximum performance out of a stock engine setup will be achieved within all safety limits. Performance numbers are based on RON 98 fuel, but is available for different fuel grades as well.

  • 100% Stock Engine
  • Engine & Gearbox diagnostics
  • TVS Custom ECU software Stage II
  • Data analyzing and fine-tuning
  • Dyno run and dynosheet
  • TVS optional ECU features included
  • Engine modifications

TVS ECU Stage II+ is characterized as maximum performance software for a modified engine setup. This upgrade requires at least a custom intake and high flow downpipe. Higher quality fuel grades are recommendable. Performance numbers may vary slightly depending on modifications and fuel grade.

  • Modified engine setup
  • Engine & Gearbox diagnostics
  • TVS Custom ECU software Stage II+
  • Data analyzing and fine-tuning
  • Dyno run and dynosheet
  • TVS optional ECU features included
  • Engine modifications

TVS ECU Stage III is custom made software for a turbo- or supercharger upgrade! Due to our knowledge, experience and specialism in calibrating high power applications, TVS is nowadays able to deliver custom ECU software for almost every turbo- and supercharger upgrade. Performance numbers will give an estimation, for more detailed performance numbers please contact TVS with your setup or have a look at the project cars we did before!

  • Engine & Gearbox diagnostics
  • TVS Custom ECU software Stage III
  • Data analyzing and fine-tuning
  • Dyno run and dynosheet
  • TVS optional ECU features included
  • Engine modifications

TVS ECU Stage IV is custom made software for a big turbo- or supercharger upgrade with a heavily modified engine setup and built engine for achieving performance numbers far above the factory ones!

  • Big Turbo- or Supercharger upgrade
  • Engine & Gearbox diagnostics
  • TVS Custom ECU software Stage IV
  • Data analyzing and fine-tuning
  • Dyno run and dynosheet
  • TVS optional ECU features included

Temperature Protection

Next to increased performance, TVS enhanced engine cooling and oil temperature management keeps your engine within optimum and safe temperature limits for maximum performance, durability and realibility!

Improved Fuel Efficiency icon

Improved Fuel Efficiency

Besides increasing performance, TVS is always focussing on several parameters related to fuel economy, especially while city driving or highway cruising. Depending on several factors such as driving style and fuel quality, improved fuel economy may be achieved.

Vehicle Speed Limiter  icon

Vehicle Speed Limiter

TVS is able to adjust or remove the vehicle speed limiter from your vehicle to any desired value.

Engine Rev Limiter icon

Engine Rev Limiter

TVS is able to adjust or remove the engine speed limiter from your engine to any desired value.

Motorsport (Hard Cut) Rev Limiter icon

Motorsport (Hard Cut) Rev Limiter

Most factory vehicles limit the engine power output before hitting the actual (hard) rev limit. TVS Motorsport rev limiter allows to reach the actual engine speed limiter without prelimiting the engine power output first. This way all the engine power stays available which allows better acceleration and a true motorsport experience.

Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) off icon

Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) off

To prevent future EGR valve problems or malfunctions and internal engine pollution, TVS can properly close the EGR valve within the software and thereby disable the EGR function (Exhaust Gas Recirculation).

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) off icon

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) off

When removing the DPF from your vehicle it is important to disable the regeneration process of the diesel particulate filter correctly within the ECU software.

Lambda / O2 delete (decat) icon

Lambda / O2 delete (decat)

When installing a decat downpipe it is important to carefully recalibrate the ECU software and optionally disable the function of the second lambda sensor located after the removed catalyst.

Exhaust Crackle / Pops & Bangs icon

Exhaust Crackle / Pops & Bangs

For various gasoline ECU’s TVS developed exhaust crackle sound software also known as “Pops & Bangs”. This feature will add an outstanding crackle to your exhaust sound after lifting off the throttle, decelerating or while free revving at standstill.

Intake Swirl Flaps delete icon

Intake Swirl Flaps delete

When removing the intake swirl flaps it is important to disable the related swirl flap functions correctly within the ECU software to prevent associated fault codes.

Start/Stop OFF icon
