Mercedes A45 Performance and CLA45 Tuning

A45 Performance Tuning

Merc’s Go-cart from Hell!

Mercedes A45 Performance to match the title? Need extra 40hp and 60nm for that.

With an amazing amount of hot hatches on the market here, one may get lost in all the choices. Mercedes was ignoring the hot hatch category until 2014, but once they entered the market, boy did they get it right.

Spacious, nimble, maneuverable and well… somewhat underwhelming. When we drove one many years ago the response was – “Is that all? Really?”

This German idea felt a bit unfinished. Looking at the hardware, everything was there. Decent engine, decent size turbo, only minor restrictions. Excitement? Not quite there. Yes, it had power, but only when up at the redline. Apart from that there was not a lot happening until 5000RPM.

The solution came after a year of development – an A45 and CLA45 tune that would improve the dreaded midrange.

Here are before and after Dyno graphs of Mercedes A45 Performance. Green is stock car, purple is tuned with a catless downpipe and BMC air filter.

Tuned A45 Cla45
CLA45 A45 Dyno Stock vs Tuned WHP (Wheel Horse Power)
A45 Stock vs Tuned Derived Torque LB/FT (torque at wheels)

From the graphs you can spot where the excitement comes from. The difference is 92Nm of torque at the wheels and closer to 110Nm at the engine.

Range Rover Sport TDV6 diesel tuning

Range Rover TDV6 Tuning

Range Rover tuning is far from new. Since the days of rugged Discovery the diesel Land Rover always had massive potential.

Slightly more refined and suburban jungle orientated than the Discovery, the Range Rover Sport is happy to be driven around the city streets but has the flexibility to be taken up the mountain on the weekend or be loaded with a trailer heading off to Hampton Downs. Sometimes you just wish that it didn’t take 10.3 seconds to get to 100Kph with the pedal planted to the floor! Range rover tuning is a fix for this.

Feel as though you are missing something? You are actually missing a significant 42HP and 50Nm to be precise! A tune can achieve 100Kph in just under 8 secs. To put those figures in some measurable perspective, those are times more commonly associated with lightweight sedans than 4×4’s. The pull, the power, the smile, all of that can be yours.

Volkswagen Mk6 Golf GTI ECU Performance Tune

Light-weight and an adequate power plant make it a joy to drive, although at times you get a feeling that the car is not giving you 100% of it’s capability. The reason for this is a rather simple one – it’s hiding another 47HP and 95Nm from stock. All of a sudden the sheer acceleration gets you to hold your breath as the pedal is squeezed!

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG ECU Performance Tune

Let’s examine one conspiracy theory. It is a popular held belief that ‘special release’ models are faster and for that you need to fork out another $50k. Let’s call it a ‘marketing ploy’.

What is it going to take for your C63 to go from being stock to achieving the power produced by that of the 507 Special Edition? An ECU remap by EuroSurgeon is the answer! You didn’t buy a C63 to drive it to Pak’nSave and back – you got it to enjoy that chill-inducing V8 rumble and to genuinely love the driving experience. So why not add another 55HP and 53Nm to it?

Audi Q7 TDI ECU Performance Tune


The Audi Q7 – the perfect multi-tasker. Ideal for taking the whole family to the Coromandel for the weekend, but it has the ability to tow dual horse floats for days on end. Whether it be taking the kids on the school run or heading away on a skiing adventure, the Q7 always needs to perform at its best.

There’s just one catch though – it’s a heavy car! Weighing just shy of 2,500 kg it needs all the power it can get. While the factory mapped engine does an adequate job of getting it to move, it still leaves a lot to be desired.  We can achieve up to 40HP and 80Nm of torque from the standard 3.0L TDI or 55HP and 130Nm from the 4.2L TDI. And while we’re at it, we can sort out a rather annoying accelerator delay.
