The m52 Stage 1 upgrade delivers phenomenal performance for the Mk7.5 Golf GTI with manual transmission.
Based on over a decade of tuning vehicles to pass OEM sign-off, the m52 Stage 1 offers the highest quality calibration, providing improved drivability, response and of course, a substantial increase in both power and torque, all vigorously durability tested to provide peace of mind that reliability is maintained.
VW have created a fantastic platform, but it's only truly brought to life once the m52 Stage 1 calibration is installed. This is (easily) administered yourself via our mTune handset, which not only offers multiple calibrations - including a low-torque version (see more on that below), it also boasts enhanced vehicle functionality, can be used to monitor gauges via the OBD port, and also includes a performance meter as well.
A return to stock option is included, together with a valet and anti-theft option, too.
For those that don't want to fit an uprated clutch kit, the m52 Stage 1 GTI calibration includes both a high-torque and low-torque calibration option as standard, so you can still safely run increased levels of performance without the fear of near instant clutch-slip.
You can switch calibrations at any point using the mTune handset, so if you decide you want more performance, or you fit an uprated clutch, even more torque is available in a matter of minutes and all included in the cost.
Whilst not essential, it is recommended to achieve and maintain the quoted power figures under hard use, an aftermarket induction system should be used, like the m52 X3, which the Stage 1 calibration has been fully optimised for.
