TVS custom ECU software solutions for the Volkswagen Golf MK8 R are divided into different performance levels, supporting 99ron fuel and suitable for both with or without any hardware modifications.
At this stage*, the car can be totally stock although an intake can yield some extra peak bhp.
|POWER||333hp||400-420hp||+67 – 87hp|
Figures advertised are maximum values measured on a car using 99ron fuel. – Please check the fuel you use, many “premium” fuels are below this rating and will can cause problems when tuning.

Features and Options:
Next to increased performance, TVS enhanced engine cooling and oil temperature management keeps your engine within optimal and safe temperature limits for maximum performance, durability and reliability!
Improved Fuel Efficiency
Besides increasing performance, TVS is always focussing on several parameters related to fuel economy, especially while city driving or highway cruising. Depending on several factors such as driving style and fuel quality, improved fuel economy may be achieved.
Vehicle Speed Limiter
TVS is able to adjust or remove the vehicle speed limiter from your vehicle to any desired value.
Engine Rev Limiter
TVS is able to adjust or remove the engine speed limiter from your engine to any desired value.
Motorsport (Hard Cut) Rev Limiter
Most factory vehicles limit the engine power output before hitting the actual (hard) rev limit by closing the throttle valve. TVS Motorsport REV limiter allows to reach the actual rev limit without prelimiting the engine power output first. This way all the engine power stays available up to the actual rev limit which allows better acceleration and a true motorsport experience.
Lambda / O2 delete (decat)
When installing a decat downpipe it is important to carefully recalibrate the ECU software and optionally disable the function of the second lambda sensor located after the removed catalyst.
Exhaust Crackle / Pops & Bangs
For various gasoline ECU’s TVS developed exhaust crackle sound software also known as “Pops & Bangs”. This feature will add an outstanding crackle to your exhaust sound after lifting off the throttle, decelerating or while free revving at standstill.
Please note that we do not recommend using this feature on a stock downpipe or sports cat.
For those of you that hate the Start/Stop technology TVS can fully deactivate this feature within the ECU software. For some models, reversing of the functionality is also available.
