Default Mountune and fifteen52 partner up to start tuning VW Group cars

This Mountune VW Golf R does 0-60 in 3.7 seconds
Tom Harrison
Mountune is known for fettling fast Fords - many of its modifications are available through Ford’s dealers, and leave your car’s factory warranty intact - but times are changing.

The Essex-based company has just partnered up with wheel company fifteen52 to offer the “same level of service, care and performance that Mountune’s Ford customers have enjoyed for more than a decade” to owners of VW Group cars, like the Golf GTI and R.

Through a new company - ‘m52’ - Mountune and fifteen52 will start by offering induction and calibration packages for fast Golfs. A ‘Stage 1’ power upgrade for a MK7 Golf R costs £795 and increases power to 360bhp. Not a massive increase, you might think, but combined with a recalibrated DSG gearbox and better launch control, the 0-60mph time comes all the way down to just 3.7 seconds. Blimey.

Various brake, suspension and cosmetic parts are available on the company’s website right now, and it says more products will be offered later in 2019.

Despite its association with Ford, Mountune isn’t totally unfamiliar with VW stuff. It built and designed Audi engines for four seasons of the Formula 2 Championship (1.8-litre four-cylinder turbos with up to 480bhp) and, two years ago, worked with VW USA on a Golf GTI for that year’s SEMA show.

What should m52 modify next?

Curious to see how the first batch of guinea pigs goes.

I'm pretty conservative and won't use a tune from someone new to the consumer tune game. Building race engines is drastically different than building a tune for a DD. I've considered getting a stg1 tune mostly to drop the 1st and 2nd gear torque limit on the stock ecu, which a piggyback like JB4 can't do.
