034Motorsport is proud to offer our Stage 1 Performance Software for the 07K 2.5L 5-Cylinder Engine found in the MkV Volkswagen Jetta & Rabbit!
Through optimization of the factory ECU's fueling and timing maps, the 034Motorsport 07K Stage 1 Tune is able to provide increased horsepower and torque, as well as a much broader powerband. 034Motorsport's engineers have also addressed other shortcomings of the factory calibrations by increasing the rev limit to 7,200 RPM, eliminating the "rev hang" between shifts, increasing the idle speed for a smoother idle, and refining part-throttle mapping for improved drivability.
With the 034Motorsport Stage 1 Tune, you can expect faster acceleration, increased peak horsepower, a large increase in low-end torque, improved throttle response, and a much broader powerband!
This tune was developed in-house by 034Motorsport's expert calibrator, and was thoroughly tested on the street, track, and dyno before release.

I've put a good weeks worth of driving on the updated tune and I have to say I am quite impressed. I had never fully planned for my Jetta to be an all out performance car, it was purchased because I needed a car and it fit the price point, I liked it when I first drove it, so pulled the trigger.
I later regreted it being a tiptronic, but I still love my Jetta. I had put a CAI on it and drove it for about 50k miles before I got my '09 CC. It took the back burner then and has spent a lot of time sitting.
I can honestly say with this tune, I am back to driving it daily and enjoying it. The new found power is definitely there, I can feel it pull a lot harder in the mid range. It feels a bit stronger off the line also. However, the biggest improvement to the car has been throttle response. On the stock tune I could tap the throttle and with all the stock throttle dampening, the rpm's wouldn't really change. This was my first drive by wire car, and I was not impressed in stock form. The 034Motorsport Stage 1 tune has completely changed this, tap the throttle and it accelerates, you can actually hear the throttle plate open instantaneously. AMAZING! Let off the throttle and you can feel the engine braking begin, it doesn't just hang there like in stock form. The car actually feels pretty sporty now. Dare I say I like the throttle mapping more than the APR Stage 2 tune on my CC? I think it's true!
Overall I would say it is a bargain for the price/performance point. It completely changed the feel of the car in very positive ways and the new found power is quite noticeable, my wife even noticed it right off the bat. Very nice to feel you have more control over what your throttle body is doing.
