    Thread: tuning a New 2019 beetle?

    1. 02-16-2019 06:42 AM #1
      Has any one tried to have a power enhancement to the new Beetle 2.0T? Just wondering what is available and how it performs. Some have said it is a detuned 2.0.

      So far as I know right now the only options are the Piggyback modules. JB4, Neuspeed and RaceChip. Of all the newer B cycle engines, the beetle and the Passat have a smaller turbo. The atlas, etc get a IS20(ish)

      The JB4 has been able to get low 200whp on the Passat, so expect the same on the beetle.

      Dessnti, Love to hear how it goes. Do I assume you are installing this yourself?

      What Neuspeed module/chip is this? I have a 2018 and am interested in this, especially if it's easy to do/easy to remove (for regular scheduled maintenance).

      I was able to install yesterday, installation was a 15 min effort. The verdict...its not a night and day difference but definitely pulls harder. I tried it with the 91(5PSI) octane settings...once I burn the tank and and have it all with 93 I will try the 100+ (7PSI)octane setting. Would not have the 7PSI as my long term setting but its more of a fun setting.

      Also needs to really be in Sport mode to really feel the pull

      Tried the 100 Octane setting..7PSI...that definitely wakes up the engine. I am running on 93 Octane

      Isn’t that a little dangerous on only 93?? Or are you mixing in some E85?

      So today I installed the 3 gauge cluster and can finally see turbo psi. With 5 Psi setting peaked at 30PSI and then holds at 25
