  • Optional Features
  • Temperature Protection

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

  • 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

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

  • 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). These modifications are free of charge within TVS chiptuning, without this starts at €149,- incl. VAT.

  • 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. These modifications are free of charge within TVS chiptuning, without this starts at €149,- incl. VAT.

For only€ 399,-
Default Stage 2+ Difference
Power 180 hp Up to220hp +40 hp
Torque 370 Nm Up to450Nm +80 Nm
  • Recommended modifications
  • Upgraded air intake system

    For Stage 2+ and higher tunes at least an upgraded air intake system and downpipe are required. An upgraded intake air system improves performance over the factory one by increasing the mass air flow through the system and thereby improving power, torque and throttle response.

  • Upgraded downpipe

    For Stage 2+ and higher tunes at least an upgraded air intake system and downpipe are required. A downpipe normally eliminates unnecessary factory restrictions and creates an ideal flow path to maximize exhaust gas flow and thereby improved performance.

  • Upgraded intercooler

    For high performance applications TVS always recommend an upgraded intercooler. In order to decrease charge air temperatures and being capable of supporting power levels far beyond that of the OEM intercooler.

  • Upgraded turbo- or supercharger kit

    For Stage 3 and higher tunes a decent upgrade turbo- or supercharger kit is required. Due to our knowledge, experience and specialism in calibrating high power applications, TVS is nowadays able to create custom software for almost every turbo- and supercharger upgrade.

  • DPF delete

    Together with an upgraded downpipe on your diesel engine it is possible to delete the diesel particulate filter to decrease restrictions in the exhaust system and increase the free flow exhaust gasses.
