Audi A1 by Pogea Racing

The German tuner starts with a power upgrade on the Audi A1 that involves a special kind of ECU tinkering to get around the VW Group's password-protected software system on the control unit. They disabled it.

So what does this Stage I tuning get us? Well, a decent amount of extra horses on the 1.4 liter TSI engine with total output now at 156 PS (115 kW / 154 bhp) and 266 Nm (196 lb-ft) of torque up from the series'122 PS (90 kW / 120 bhp) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft). That includes a sport air filer from BMC. The electronically-limited top speed is also lifted so that this A1 can now make it to 245 km/h (152 mph) as opposed to the standard 202 km/h (125 mph).

Pogea Racing additionally provides a Variant 1 Inox-Line KW coil-over kit and lightweight 18-inch OZ Racing Alleggerita HLT rims with ET35 Sport Contact 3 tires from Continental. Brembo brakes with perforated discs are part of the package too.

The house-made sport exhaust system features a front and rear silencer and two stainless-steel 76 mm tailpipes with laser engraving.

For more serious customers, Pogea Racing also offers a Stage II on the Audi A1 with charged air cooling and more electronics work. Stage II also gets a Variant 2 KW suspension with special characteristics.
