Welcome to 1.8T 20v Tuning

Your official page for all things 1.8T 20v Tuning related…

Starting off as a small Facebook group run by hobbyists for the hobbyist, our aim is to provide you with a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all the best advice and tuning related questions you may have. We found that as our group expanded, a lot of questions were getting repeated by newer members, so we decided a page with all the basic advice and facts would be great.

This page will outline what different options there are for chasing power out of the 1.8T engine and a rough price of each one and difficulty of each route. Please, grab a cup of tea, or a beer and take your time to have a read through and hopefully, we can help you with assisting what route is best for you based on how you want your car to drive, rough power levels and most importantly….within your budget. Head over to the Tuning basics to get started.

HAPPY TUNING!!.
