VW Golf R MK7
So this may have happened… A VW Golf Mk7R!
As with most our cars at ADE Tuning, they don’t tend to stay standard for long and very soon new parts started arriving…
So we have a Racingline Induction Kit and a GFB Diverter Valve ready to install (ADE Tuning can supply and fit Racingline Performance goodies and GFB).
The Golf 7R engine bay before the install…
The GFB diverter valve
We replaced the standard DV with the GFB as the factory DV is plastic and the GFB one has metal parts, making it stronger and more reliable when it comes to the car being mapped. Plus it sounds great 🙂
There is limited room in the engine bay but with a bit of persuasion we soon got the induction kit fitted.
Nothing looks out of place and at a glance you most likely wouldn’t think the car wasn’t standard.
So with the induction kit and diverter valve fitted the Golf 7R was on the ramps ready for a Milltek decat and resonated catback fitting and also a Wagner Tuning fmic before heading over to the rolling road for the remap.
Milltek Sport Exhaust time
On one of the last Golf R’s that we mapped we fitted a decat downpipe with a resonated cat back, so we knew that this was the right level of loudness that we wanted. We felt that a non-resonated catback with the decat would have been to loud and droney.
You can see the quality of the workmanship in the decat and catback pipe work from Milltek.
The original system on the car.
You need to remove the prop shaft to fit the decat downpipe.
Milltek back box fitted, looking all new and shiny 🙂
We chose the black tailpipes for the car as it would suit the cosmetics we have planned.
So with the induction kit fitted along with the Milltek Sport decat and cat back system, it was time for a FMIC. We chose the Wagner Tuning intercooler as we fitted one to the T5 and was happy with quality.
Volkswagen have really upped their game when fitting the front end of the Golf 7R, we’ve never had to remove sooo many plastic clips and studs when fitting a FMIC. It took the best part of the day 🙁
The FMIC is fitted, you can’t see it but it is there!
With all the goodies fitted, it was now time for the Golf R MK7 to go over to the rolling road for a custom remap. With the Haldex unplugged we where able to run the car in 2wd, allowing us to remap on our rolling road. The standard power of a VW Golf R MK7 is 300bhp and this was the first one for us to map with the DV and FMIC. With the custom remap written to suit the modifications we ran the car on the rolling road … 420bhp 🙂
