Stage 2 is a tuning of the engine management which takes into account different installed parts. In the case of a petrol engine, this is an exhaust / downpipe change with or without catalyst. An intercooler and / or air filter can complement the exhaust / downpipe.

E85 Flex fuel : 143HP 320Nm

The E85 flex-fuel tuning allows your vehicle to run on two types of fuel: bio-ethanol, gasoline or both fuels simultaneously. Further to the optimization of the engine mapping, your engine will adapt its operation according to the amount of bio-ethanol injected. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
When the E85 conversion is not possible at the level of engine mapping, an additional flex-fuel box can be offered as an option.

E85 Flex + : 185HP 410Nm

The E85 flex + preparation combines reprogramming and E85 flex-fuel conversion. You will therefore recover a more efficient vehicle that can run on E85 fuel or gasoline. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
In some cases, flex-fuel conversion can not be combined with standard reprogramming.

Air filter BMC Logo

What does the sports air filter do? For good combustion, the fuel and air must be free of impurities. By its design, the sports air filter improves the performance of your vehicle by optimising the flow of air to the engine. Unlike a conventional paper air filter, the sports air filter is made of cotton and can be washed.

Power curve

The role of the ShifTech motor mechanic is to enhance the settings while trying to obtain the most homogeneous and coherent curve possible. The power and torque curves for the preparation of your vehicle are placed in good hands and discussed individually.

Each SHIFTECH reprogramming operation is preceded and succeeded by putting the vehicle on a Cartec 4x4 1,200 HP dynamometer. The dynamometer serves two purposes:

  • to measure accurately the torque and power the vehicle develops before and after reprogramming;
  • to detect any problems with the vehicle: seized turbo, torque too high, clogged airflow metre or air filter.

The test bench is equipped with a 60,000 m³/h fan in order to replicate road conditions as closely as possible.


We guarantee five years of efficient operation of the mapping and to return the vehicle to its original state if it’s going to be sold. We guarantee a power and torque increase after reprogramming, provided the engine is in good condition and servicing has been carried out at the right time. If your engine management system is updated by your dealer, we will reprogramme it free of charge based on the update.


In order to provide the best conditions for waiting, each ShifTech centre has a waiting room equipped with WiFi, magazines and a TV. Drinks are also on offer. If you prefer, you can leave your vehicle in the morning and collect it again at the end of the day.

DSG gearbox reprogramming

The DSG gearbox (dual clutch) allows quick gearshifting but does not deliver its full potential so far. With the reprogramming we are working on several parameters:

  • Decreased gear change time
  • Increasing maximum engine speed (rpm/min)
  • Increasing the maximum torque
  • Removing kick-down
  • Improving responsiveness

Exhaust system

The sports exhaust system improves the sound and the appearance of the vehicle. Concerning full exhaust, it’s possible to obtain greater power gains when reprogramming.
