Where To Tune My VW


Where To Tune My VW

So you’ve taken the first step to actually enjoying your daily commute and bought yourself a Volkswagen GTI. It makes all the right sounds and feels like an upper-class performance car while providing you the unique versatility that only the VW GTI can. However, what happens after you’ve had it for a few months and gotten used to the performance? Have you found yourself asking any of the following questions: 

  • What mods should I do to my GTI?
  • Which mods should I do first?
  • Which GTI mods will give me the best bang for the buck?
  • Who should I trust to tune my VW GTI?

Pfaff Tuning has got the answers to these questions! If you are looking for a place that can tune your VW, then a service appointment with our technicians is needed!

General Maintenance

Not commonly thought of as a “mod” or “tune”, general maintenance items are actually a great starting point for you on your quest to improve and modify your VW GTI. Upping the general maintenance items for your GTI help ensure that it performs the best it can for the duration of your ownership and beyond.


Tires. This is one of the best ways you can effortlessly boost your GTI’s performance. It’s so simple that sometimes enthusiasts overlook this step. If you can increase traction you increase performance. Unless your goal is to create a tire smoking burnout machine, adding power and reducing weight is useless without the traction needed to effectively put it to the ground. Pfaff Tuning has access to a large variety of different tire brands. We can get your VW outfitted with the right tires for your driving needs.

ECU Tuning

Now that we have the maintenance, wheels, tires, intake, exhaust and intercooler taken care of, it’s now time to optimize those modifications by customizing the ecu’s tuning to your GTI’s setup. The stock ECU is conservatively programmed from the factory, leaving a great amount of safe and reliable power available through a custom tune. Tunes usually come in stages, adding more power in each stage by further optimizing the engine’s fuel, air and supporting mapping.
