Essex-based tuners Mountune are continuing to look at upgrades for the Volkswagen range and are now ready to release their first upgrade the Mk7.5 Volkswagen Golf GTI under their m52 brand.
Their m52 Stage 1 GTI package boosts power and torque “without compromising on the vehicle’s safety or reliability”. The Stage 1 Power Upgrade can be yours for just £715.50 (including VAT) and allows you to tune the car yourself by simply plugging in the mTune handset.
The handset comes equipped with five distinct calibrations. High-torque and low-torque settings allow you to get the most out of the Stage 1 Upgrade without upgrading your Golf’s clutch. Other calibrations include a stock option, as well as a valet and anti-theft option that fully immobilise your vehicle when you are not with it.
The Mk7.5 GTI’s peak power has been increased to 310 PS with torque increased all the way to 475 Nm, respective gains of 88 PS and 125 Nm – but that is not it all. 0-60 mph times have been slashed from 6.4 seconds to 5.4 seconds highlighting the Stage 1 Upgrade’s ability to further unleash the 2.0TSI engine.
The m52 MK7.5 Golf GTI Stage 1 Upgrade is the latest development to come from m52. We are still relatively new to the world of VW performance upgrades but using our knowledge and expertise gained from our time working with Ford vehicles, we have been able to produce a high-quality power upgrade that comes at an affordable price. We are looking forward to seeing the response from our ever-growing m52 community.Alec Pell-Johnson, Director of mountune and m52
