You may recall the Golf VI GTI Razor 6 that RevoZport revealed to the world back in 2010? As its name suggests it was based on the Golf GTI VI , and it was all about bumping the engine’s total output.
With Volkswagen revealing the seventh-generation Golf GTI , RevoZport came with a new tuning kit, this time called of course Razor 7.
For the first time, the GTI is offered with two different level of power. As standard, the GTI’s 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine delivers either 220, but you can bump that to 230 horsepower with the Performance model. We think that even VW can admit that those numbers aren’t necessarily overwhelming.
This is where RevoZport comes into focus. It updated the turbocharged engine with an ECU remap, a new induction system and a titanium exhaust that weight just 22 pounds — 50 percent less than the stock version. This increases the 2.0-liter engine’s total output to 290 horsepower, which is much better suited for a hot hatchback like the GTI.
