Good afternoon everyone, I just purchased an '07 GTI/ Rabbit over the weekend. It has cold air intake already in place. I'm currently working on doing the timing belt/water pump since I was unable to verify that it had been done by previous owners and its sitting at 143k miles right now. After doing this along with spark plugs and a valve cover gasket I had planned on looking into tuning the vehicle. I'm just curious if there is a way to find out if it had already been tuned or not. Is there a way to find this out?

Check your cam follower if you have not done so already............. Do you have access to a scan tool, you could do a pull in 4th gear from 1500 rpm to redline or do it in 3rd gear if you do not have the space for a 4th gear run. Be safe and have someone else do the logging for you...If you have a boost gauge you can also use that.

You can also try the known tuning companies and provide your VIN and see if they have any info on your car.

I work for a car dealership, the techs here have scan tools. I'll ask one of them and see if they can hook it up and find out for me.
