VW MK7 GTI Holiday Buyers Guide
Top 7 Parts for Yor MK7 GTI
From all of us at MAP we want to wish you Happy Holidays and have put together an MK7 GTI wishlist full of our top selling products and the best performance parts to get the most out of your car.
1) Tuning software: If you don't have one already a COBB V3 accessport should be on the top of your list for first mods for your MK7. It unlocks the hidden power of your car in stock form and opens the door for future mods down the road. When you purchase an accessport you also get a free MAP OTS tune which provides: 85wHP and 93wtq power gains! We are giving away a free accessport so enter below to be eligible and for giveaway details.
2) MAPerformance Intake: Increase airflow with our MAPerformance air intake system. This intake has a full 3” design and includes 6" velocity stack for increased air flow. This air intake kit also removes the SAI (secondary air injection) hard line that runs from the pump to the air box by having a filter attached directly to the pump for a cleaner look!
3) MAPerformance Downpipe: Remove the restrictive stock downpipe and open up the airflow after your turbo with our own MAPerformance downpipe. We went through several iterations and filter combinations to maximize power. We have a wide variety of options including resonated and non-resonated as well as catted, catless, and GESI cat.
4) MAP Stage 2 Power Package: When you combine the top three items you get our MAP Stage 2 Power Package. This kit paired with our MAP OTS Stage 2 tune and free-flowing downpipe will yield 90whp and 100wtq power gains over stock! Check out our videos for more including sound clips.
5) Boomba blow off valve adapter: Get the turbo sound you want from your car with this blow off valve adapter from Boomba Racing. This adapter mounts between the OEM bypass valve/solenoid and the turbo housing, causing the unused charge air to vent to atmosphere (VTA) giving off the well known, but distinct sound all turbo owners know and love! The adapter bolts right in with the included longer bolts, no other modifications or tuning are required.
6) Boomba Short Throw Weighted Shift Knob: Weighing in at over 4X the weight of a stock shift knob, the Boomba Racing shift knob reduces the factory throw by 28% and height by 2 inches. This is a great addition to your MK7 interior!
7) Rally Armor Mud Flaps: Protect your car from grit, gravel, mud, rocks, snow, salt, tar, and even road-kill with Rally Armor's polyurethane tear resistant mud flaps. No drill application. Use supplied hardware, brackets and instructions to mount. These will not only help protect your car but also give it a cool rally look!
