Building off of extensive experience with the SIMOS controllers found in modern VW and Audi vehicles , Unitronic Engineers recalibrated the SIMOS 19.6 ECU to unlock more power + torque with Stage 2, including new boost numbers, re-optimized ignition timing, optimal camshaft timing, and more after switching to an upgraded downpipe.
Unitronic Software and Hardware Engineers are constantly collaborating to ensure the highest level of cohesion and performance. On the hardware side, Engineers created the new Unitronic Performance Downpipe to dissipate exhaust gas and reduce backpressure on the turbine and worked with the Engineering team on the software/calibration side to further dyno and road test while closely monitoring running conditions through high-speed data logging tools to ensure maximum performance while also maintaining highest possible reliability and drivability.
Aided by empirical data collection and instrumentation, Unitronic Engineers commpnly find factory hard part limits that inhibit performance — either through efficiency issues or air-flow restrictions. In the case of the 2.0TSI MQB EVO4 engines, Unitronic noted that the factory intercooler heat soaks and loses an ability to keep air temperature at cool levels before the ECU intervenes to reduce output based on levels being too high. Thus, a Unitronic Intercooler was installed in order to unlock maximum output and published power figures. Going one step further for Stage 2, a downpipe upgrade will be required in order to alleviate downstream restrictions and optimize turbocharger performance to create even more power.
