The Volkswagen Group engines are like LEGO for tuners and this means that the powerplants receive a long list of modification packages that come from companies based in all parts of the world.

One of the companies that like to play with the friendly VW units is Sportec. The tuner, which comes from Switzerland, has released new upgrades for the 2.0 liters TFSI engine’s various incarnations.

The factory stock 2.0 liter unit currently offers three levels of power: 211 hp and 280 Nm of torque (for the Volkswagen Golf GTI, the Volkswagen Scirocco and the Seat Leon), 265 hp and 350 Nm of torque (for the Audi S3) and 270 hp & 350 Nm of torque (for the Volkswagen Golf R and Volkswagen Scirocco R). Sportec offers a power boosting kit that brings the 211 hp version of the engine to 252 hp and a maximum torque of 404 Nm.

The tuner had already released a power upgrade kit for the beefier incarnations of the unit, allowing them to deliver 300 hp and a maximum torque of 410 Nm. However, the tuner now raises the standard, offering a performance package that brings the game to 323 hp and 474 Nm of torque.

The aforementioned version of the 2.0 liter turbocharged engine can be mated to a six speed manual gearbox or to a DSG double clutch transmission, with Sportec’s power upgrades being suitable for both transmissions.

What you’ve just read is an example of the fact that VW’s 2.0 liter turbocharged engine is one of the most tuning-friendly powerplants that are currently available on the market, being an ideal toy for enthusiasts.
