We are proud to announce that we can now offer you Haldex performance products for your VW and Audi vehicles.

These include Gen1, Gen2 and Gen4 controllers.

Haldex Gen1

Gen1 Tuning upgrade
Cars based on Platform 4

. Audi A3 / S3 quattro, 1998-2003
. Audi TT quattro, 1998-2006
. Seat Leon 4, 1998- 2005.
. Seat Alhambra, 1998-2008
. Skoda Octavia 4×4, 1998-2004
. VW Golf 4MOTION, 1998-2004
. VW Bora 4MOTION, 1998-2004
. VW Sharan 4MOTION, 1998-2008

Features:

. Increased torque transfer to the rear at accelerations gives more consistent
behaviour and more oversteered handling for sportier behaviour

. Faster torque transfer respond as a function of how fast the driver pushes the throttle pedal. Haldex system prepares to transfer torque before actual torque is delivered from Engine to the driveline.

. At higher speeds the torque will decrease which gives less oversteering and safer handling. Understeering gives a safer feeling of the vehicle.

. All safety features works as in the original software, for example during ABS braking or an ESP intervention the coupling will stop transferring torque to avoid interference with the safety systems.

Haldex Gen2

Gen2 Tuning upgrade
cars based on Platform 5

. Audi A3, sportsback quattro, 2004-
. Audi A3/S3 quattro, 2004-
. Audi TT quattro, 2007-
. Golf 4 Motion, 2005-
. Golf R32, 2005-
. Skoda Octavia 4×4, 2005-
. VW transporter 4 Motion, 2004-

New performance software for generation 2 developed by Haldex that has an option where the driver can choose between
3 different parameter settings.

Option 1 .
As default when no switch is installed the software is fixed in sport mode which will give the car a sportier and more over steered handling performance.

Option 2.
Installing a switch that can be mounted on the dashboard and the driver will have the possibilities to choose between 3 different parameter settings.

Standard setting. Standard mode is similar to the original setting in the standard vehicle.
This mode is recommended to be used during normal driving.

Sport setting. Sport mode will make the handling more fun and sportier with increased torque transfer to the rear axle during accelerations.

Racing setting. Racing mode will increase the torque transfer to the rear axle even more during accelerations and also react faster depending on how fast the driver pushes the throttle.
All safety features works as in the original software, for example during ABS braking or an ESP intervention the coupling will stop transferring torque to avoid interference with the cars safety systems.

Haldex Gen4

Gen4 Tuning upgrade

. Audi A3 / S3 quattro, 2009( 2008b)
. Audi TT quattro, 2009
. Audi TTs quattro, 2009
. Seat Altea 4, 2009
. Skoda Superb 4×4, 2009 ( 2008b)
. VW Golf 4MOTION, 2009 ( 2008b)
. VW Passat 4motion, 2008-
. VW Tiquan 2008-

Option 1.
As default when no switch or remote control is installed the software is fixed in Race mode which will give the car a
sportier and more over steered handling performance. Excellent at the track or just for fun active driving.

Option 2.
Installing a switch or a remote control the driver will have the possibilities to choose between 3 different parameter
settings.

Eco. Developed for fuel efficiency and increased durability of driveline parts. This tuning reduces the torque transfer during normal highway driving (coasting), but will immediately engage the system if a wheel starts to slip to prevent decreased traction capabilities
This mode is recommended to be used when 4 wheel drive is not a high priority as in highway driving, Commuting etc.

Stock. Standard mode is similar to the original setting in the standard vehicle.
This mode is recommended to be used for normal driving.

Race. Race mode will increase close to maximum torque transfer to the rear axle during accelerations and active driving. It also reacts faster due to the driver’s intentions and locks up for more torque before actual torque is available from the engine.
All safety features works as in the original software, for example during ABS braking or an ESP intervention the coupling will stop transferring torque to avoid interference with the cars safety systems.

There are 2 switches available:

Hi guys! Trust that you all have had a relaxing break as well as a joyous Xmas and New Year! From the team at VAG Technik,  thank you for your support in 2009….because of you we have managed to successfully re-ignite Revo as a brand in South Africa as well as provide you with loads of imported parts for your rides. We are humbled and hope that 2010 will be a great year for all of us…

We have some great new products in stock as well as coming in soon.

APR Carbon fiber cold air intake system for Mk6 GTI and Scirocco 2.0TSI

This kit is complete and comprises of a Stage1 cold air intake as well as Stage2 MAF to turbo intake pipe.

Price: R6500 (in stock)

APR R1 Diverter valve (1.8T)

The APR R1 diverter valve was designed to be the ultimate solution to the problem of unreliable factory and aftermarket diverter valves and to be the leader in performance. Although most are of good design factory diverter valves are built in a very conscious manner and the materials and overall life and reliability suffer. For the performance enthusiast the diverter valve is an important component whose proper operation is paramount to optimal engine operation.
The R1 is designed for optimal performance. The main body of the valve is investment cast in an aluminum alloy. By utilizing this casting process in lieu of a more conventional machining process APR was able to optimize the internal geometry of the valve to provide the ultimate in flow performance. This geometry cannot be created utilizing conventional machining. As such the APR R1 has much better flow characteristics than other diverter valves. Combined with the low friction diaphragm assembly this equates to a valve that is truly a performance leader.

Price: R1650

OSIR O-Pod Mono RHD

Vented single gauge pod fits all MKV Golf and Jettas. Pod angle displays gauge towards your line of sight. No cutting or special installation steps needed -simply plug & play. Fits both 60mm & 52mm gauges (52mm step down ring included)

Price: TBA

42 Draft designs (arrival imminent!)

Mk5 Boost gauge tap

Our boost gauge tap is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum. The design mimics the factory intake manifold and PCV tube, squeezing a spacer between the two. In this spacer, a brass barb allows for a universal boost gauge connection. A carefully designed tab allows the fitting to lock into the stock intake manifold. Precision machining on the female side allows the PCV tube to lock in and seal without leaking. On the male side, two Viton o-rings seal the fitting inside the intake manifold.

Our boost gauge tap fits both FSI and TSI motors. Installation is quick and reversible. No tools are required and our fitting leaves no marks on the intake manifold or PCV tube. Our boost gauge barb fits .170″ ID tubing.

Mk5 PCV Plug and Tap

Built on the same design as our vacuum manifold tap, the PCV Plug & Tap removes the factory PCV hose and adds a single port . This port can feed a larger boost/vacuum accessory – diverter valve, wastegate, or a vacuum manifold. Using a vacuum manifold and this tap, a motor which previously had no available boost/vacuum ports can now have 4!

*This tap is only recommended for those who have disabled or deleted the intake side of the factory PCV system*

Oil Catch Cans

We currently offer two models, both based on the same successful internal design. Our Ultimate Oil Catch Can offers features and options found nowhere else. Our Stealth Oil Catch Can offers the function of our ultimate can in a discrete package.

Mk5 Shifter cable bushings

Eliminate sloppy shifts forever!

Our CNC machined shifter cable bushings tighten up the movement of your shifter cables, literally connecting your hand to the gears. In a performance situation, the factory rubber bushings flex causing a delay in the engagement in the gears. Our bushings eliminate this delay and provide a precision shift free of slop or hesitation.

Our shifter cable bushings are CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and fit precisely within the factory endlink. Each bushing is sleeved with an oil-impregnated bronze bearing. This bearing provides constant lubrication and a lifetime of use without wear.

Specifically machined for a variety of fitments, our shifter cable bushings provide instant results. Installation is a simple task and requires only slight modification to the side/side endlink. If you’re looking to feel your shifts, these bushings are the answer!

ECS  ’Sharan’  type antenna

Due to popular demand, I have ordered more of these and they should be here shortly.

Price: R200

ECS magenetic drain plugs

14×1.5, includes 10 copper seal washers.


Magnetic Drain Plugs from ECS Tuning for your V/W & Audi. ECS MAGNETIC PLUGS have a permanent magnet that is fastened to the plug body. This magnet attracts and holds abrasive ferrous metal particles preventing their circulation through the lubrication or hydraulic system.
These abrasive ferrous metal particles appear in lubricating or hydraulic systems as a result of the following conditions:
The constant flaking effect of normal wear of moving parts. 
Particles not removed by flushing operations after boring or machining. 
Chipping due to sub-surface casting flaws. 
Minute component breakdown caused by stress usage.
Usually a combination of factors accounts for the presence of these particles that cause excessive wear to vital components unless they are removed. By holding these particles ECS MAGNETIC DRAIN PLUGS prevent excessive wear to the system’s components.
These drain plugs are to be torqued down to 22ft. lbs.

Price: R120

32mm Indigo Perfect match Boost gauge

Perfect match for your blue VW interior lights, 0-30in Hg, 0-30 PSI boost
