Volkswagen Scirocco - 170bhp upgrade

APS of Brackley is pleased to unveil a Stage One engine performance upgrade for the popular, powerful and economical 140PS 2.0 TDi Volkswagen Scirocco Coupe.

Though praised for its class leading output, detailed analysis of the characteristics of the ECU calibration and engine output from the VW Scirocco’s 1968cc, 16-valve, DOHC, direct injection turbo diesel engine by APS revealed potential for further performance enhancement.

This prompted APS’s technicians to begin development of a specially revised map for the Scirocco 2.0 TDi’s engine management system, which was refined to balance the performance, emissions and driveability requirements that APS’s customers have grown to expect.

As standard, the VW Scirocco 2.0 TDi produces 138bhp (103 KW) allied to 236lb.ft of torque. Post conversion, the APS Stage One Scirocco 2.0 TDi now boasts 170bhp (127KW) and a mighty 292lb.ft of torque – and this – allied to peak power arriving at a mere 3670rpm, makes for an exciting, yet relaxed drive.

Pleasingly, fuel economy is unaffected by the APS Stage One performance upgrade, so a combined figure of 55mpg can be expected.

Priced at £499.00 fitted, including VAT @ 15%, the APS Stage One VW Scirocco 2.0 TDi performance upgrade is available now. For total peace of mind, APS’s conversions are covered by a guarantee for the balance of the manufacturer’s warranty.
