SUPERPOWERS. FOR YOUR CAR.

Expect power increases of up to 40HP and 60Nm with supporting RacingLine hardware over the factory quoted numbers. Not only that, but it’s beautifully smooth and progressive gains, right throughout the rev-range.

Two versions of PCM are available, to suit either the higher or lower output versions of the EA888 gen.4 engines.

How does PCM work?

PCM works by using our in-house developed calibration running on our standalone PCB, which communicates in parallel with the factory ECU.

This communication route allows the PCM to safely optimise a variety of electronic sensor signals in real time, interfacing between the engine controls and its sensors. With multiple channels such as charge air pressure, ignition and fuelling controlled by the PCM computer, the result is increased power and torque across the whole powerband of the engine.

We have carried tens of thousands of development miles of rigorous testing on our in-house dyno, on road and on track with numerous calibrations, across multiple cars and different hardware installations, allowing us to find the sweet spot for engine performance, drivability and safety.

Track-proven

Every product that carries the RacingLine logo has been thoroughly track-tested. And PCM is no exception.

Why? Because only in hard track-use can we push the car’s engine to the limits, again and again. It’s reassuring to know that we’ve done the hard work so you can get on with enjoying your car!

Hardware Compatible

Right from the outset, PCM has been developed in conjunction with RacingLine’s latest Performance Parts for the MQB ‘evo’ cars.

​Whilst PCM has been developed to work perfectly on an unmodified stock car, it has also been calibrated to self-adapt to take full advantage of any RacingLine upgrades.

​So adding the RacingLine R600 EVO intake, plus our new Turbo Inlet Systems will really let the PCM extract the most from your engine.

What fuel grade can I use?

PCM has been designed to work with different fuel grades around the world, just like factory calibration does. Meaning it’s perfectly safe, whatever grade fuel you put in your tank.

However, using a lower fuel grade will result in less power, meaning that a premium octane fuel is always advised.

How does it compare to an OEM+ calibration?

We’re completely honest about this: the PCM calibration is not as sophisticated as our OEM+ calibrations are.

​To keep the car smooth, safe and reliable, PCM’s power levels have to be kept lower than we anticipate for our OEM+ Stage 1 calibrations.

​But of course, you’ll love the power boost you get from PCM, combined with the drivability and efficiency gains. And with our free upgrade program, you can have a free OEM+ calibration as soon as it’s available if that’s the way you want to go!

Perfect fitment. Just for MQB Evo cars.

PCM has been designed with OE levels of quality in mind. With a stunning CNC machined housing, carbon fibre battery mounting bracket, perfect-fit wiring looms and matching mounting hardware, it will look right at home in your engine bay. Because PCM is only developed for the 2.0 TSI MQB EVO vehicle, you can be assured of perfect fitment.

Can I install at home?

PCM has a simple installation, providing you have a basic level of mechanical knowledge. The PCM unit sits above the battery, using the provided carbon fibre battery mount and hardware, while the wiring loom is plugged into existing sensors found at the top of the engine.

Or for full peace of mind, all of our approved PCM dealers around the world can also install this for you, subject to labour charges.

What’s in the kit?

Simple. Everything you need for install, in a kit specifically built for the MQB ‘evo’ cars with the 2.0 TSI EA888.4 engine.

​As well as the PCM box with its beautiful billet case, a carbon fibre bracket mounts it perfectly on top of the battery. The wiring loom is to the perfect length for your car. Finally a deactivation plug is included, should you ever choose to temporarily disconnect your PCM.

Is PCM removable?

PCM is completely removable, with no changes to be made to the hardware or software of the original car.

We also include a PCM blanking unit, which plugs into the existing wiring loom and removes the PCM calibration, without having to remove any of the installed hardware.

Does PCM affect warranty?

It’s very clear – any tuning modification on your vehicle can invalidate your manufacturer’s engine & powertrain warranty. So if your dealer sees the PCM fitted, then they’d be entitled to reject a warranty claim on the engine or drivetrain.

​Of course, PCM is fully removable. With it removed, the car is returned to true stock, but whilst PCM leaves minimal trace to the ECU, it’s important to understand that there is no guarantee that this product is warranty safe and is installed at the customers’ own risk.

PCM UPGRADE Free upgrade

A popular part of RacingLine’s OEM+ software offering is our free of charge upgrades from Stage 1 all the way up to Stage 3 for all our customers, as long as local dealer upgrade conditions are satisfied.

Being a part of the OEM+ family, the PCM is also eligible for our free engine ECU calibration upgrade path. This allows you to exchange your PCM box and receive an OEM+ tuned calibration for your ECU just as soon as it’s available*.

Meaning that you can enjoy the extra power and torque that PCM provides in the meantime, safe in the knowledge that whenever available, you are entitled to upgrade to our OEM+ Stage 1 and 1+(plus Stage 2 or even 3 beyond that if applicable).

This free upgrade offer can only be carried out if your PCM was supplied by one of our OEM+ Approved Software Dealers. You will have to be able to take your car to them for the upgrade to be carried out.

* Dealer installation charges may apply.

PCM UPGRADE Via your OEM+ dealer

Upgrades are only applicable to the original purchaser, with proof of sale required from the supplying dealer.

​Whilst all of our RacingLine dealers can supply PCM for you, it’s very important to understand that only those RacingLine dealers that are also OEM+ software approved will be able to perform the free upgrade when that time comes.
