    Thread: What to do after IE stage 1

    1. 03-26-2020 06:55 AM #1
      Hey all I have a 2013 vw cc sport 2.0 just recently purchased and installed the stage 1 tune from integrated engineering along side the DSG tune. I also have a cold air intake from DFG tuning. It’s my daily driver so i was wondering what would be some other good mods to throw on it. Also what would be some upgrades I could do to parts that will be more likely to go with the tune installation and more power added. Thanks in advance !

      I’d look into replacing the timing chain and tensioner if they haven’t been addressed already. It would be a shame to mod it all up and have that go. It’s a known issue on these engines. Beyond that, I would go straight to KO4 🙂

      Downpipe and exhaust would be my next go-to power mods, very effective on the 2.0t for unleashing power.
