I imagine any power gains will be small with it being N/A. Try super chips they seem to do most cars.

thinking a Supercharger kit would be good if someone wants to develop one for the up, using standard compression and remap when fitted.

a friend had his up on a set of rollers, its a 75hp, 95nm high up, but it delivered 85hp and 124nm of torque. exactly the same as those unofficial remaps say they can get it to deliver.






the image isn't any larger then this.

^ yes, VW are notorious for 'deliberately underestimating' the power of their engines.

Hmmm, struggling to believe the figures are accurate, sounds like too much compensation added for drivetrain losses. Up has a tiny lightweight gearbox.
