Steve’s Auto Clinic has been at it again and has a new engine upgrade available. This time for the VW Amarok.
The Amarok was introduced in 2011 and as a standard, this capable machine’s 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine delivers an impressive 132kW of power along with 420Nm of torque.
However, the local tuner assures us that more power can be tapped safely and reliably with their Mission Impossible (M:I) Amarok upgrade.
This upgrade increases the engine’s output, in its most powerful mode, to 170kW of power and to 515Nm of torque.
The upgrade can be done at any of the SAC branches countrywide and the performance engineer will make sure that the installation is done correctly and that the power delivery is matched to the engine condition and age, to ensure that your Amarok continues to give you many years of good service.
Because people have different needs and their bakkies are used for a variety of reasons, SAC have programmed several different maps that allow the driver to select the optimal power delivery for the situation.
The maps include a 4×4 and Caravan mode, which gives the Amarok maximum low-down torque for towing or technical off-road work.There is a fuel consumption option that remaps the engine to deliver the best possible fuel consumption and a security map that will render the engine completely powerless. When selecting this mode the driver can remove the in-cabin map selector, so that it will be impossible for a would-be thief to drive off with the car.
