BBM Motorsports Gives VW Golf 7 GTI a Performance Cure [w/Video]

The German tuners over at BBM Motorsport found the latest Volkswagen Golf GTI to lack in performance even when opted with the factory upgrade that boosts the 2.0-liter turbo'd engine to 227hp (230PS), up from the stock model's 217hp (220PS), so they devised what they call, a "performance cure".

What it entails is a new ECU, which combined with different downpipes and a complete exhaust system (including the catalyst), increases output by 70hp and peak torque by 90Nm (66 lb-ft) for a total of 297hp (300PS) at 6,100 to 6,700 rpm and 440Nm (325 lb-ft) at 2,150 to 4,750 rpm respectively.

Complementing the engine tune are new twin exhaust pipes, a Stoptech braking system with 328 x 25 mm four-piston fixed calipers, DDC coilovers from KW with electronic hardness regulation and 20 to 55 millimeters of car body lowering, plus a new set of BBS 19-inch wheels wrapped in performance rubber.
