    Rally Raid Touareg 2.5 tdi 5 cyl manual g/box

    Hi I would like to prepare a VW Touareg for use in off road racing/rallyraids. In addition to tuning the engine, I will need to remove many of the features in the standard car, eg air bags, a/c, electric windows, central locking, DSC, ABS, and replace/upgrade shock absorbers, remove standard dashboard to accommodate the roll over cage, etc. A lot of work which Iím sure will give the ECU a head fit. Will your product handle this please?

    Probably not. VCDS can only change those things that the manufacturer made a provision to be changed via their diagnostic APIs.

    If you're going to rip most of the electronics out of this vehicle, leaving only the ECU, I think you're going to have to find a tuner with the skills to put make ECU software for you that doesn't care about all of that missing stuff the the ECU would normally talk to.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
