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 I’m 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.
