MED17 MapSwitch

A lot of tuners contacted us for a solution to switch between maps on the newer generation MED17 ECUs. After a few weeks of rigorous testing we have been able to come up with a robust solution. Here is a video of it in action on an VW Golf MED17.5:

Launch Control the Right Way

For far too long tuners have been implementing launch control on diesels by simply limiting the RPM of the engine, say 3500RPM. With no load on the engine, this results in only 10-12mg/str of diesel being injected which is insufficient to spool the turbo and hence the resulting “launch” is with the engine not at it’s peak performance.

Our goal at Tangent is to have the best of everything. As soon as the issue was identified, we devised a new strategy for an improved launch.
