Tuning firm boosts power to 375bhp; 400bhp package on its way
23 July 2009

German tuning firm Mcchip has launched two upgrade packages for the recently released Audi TT RS.

The stage one package, costing 899 euros (£775), consists of an ECU tweak that boosts the output of the TT RS’s 2.5-litre turbocharged engine from 335bhp to 375bhp.

Torque has also been increased, up from 332lb ft to 406lb ft. Top speed has been increased to 186mph.

Styling changes have been kept to a minimum, with the biggest change being the addition of Cargraphic GTR wheels, costing 6600 euros (£5685). The tyres have also been changed and the TT RS now wears high-performance 255/30 R20 Continental rubber.

Mcchip is set to announce a stage two package in the coming weeks, although no prices have been announced for it. This package is set to boost power to around 400bhp.
