Hi guys,

I'm a 2007 Golf City owner and was looking into some of the small mods that I could do to improve performance. Not looking into +50 hp gains.. Just a small hp increase.

So I'm planning to install a cai, as well as tune the software with Unitronic's chip
(Volkswagen Golf City 2.0L 8v stage1+)

I know that these aren't major modifications, but would I have any issues with the 4 speed auto transmission?

Probably not much of a point as that tune will make a negligible difference for the amount you'll be spending. Not worth it in my eyes.

That 4 speed will take a whailing from that 2.0 all day.
As far as power, laughable. You need head and cam work before a torque converter even makes any sense. You'll end up with an expensive slow car that no longer has the advantage of high mpg.

Just throw on a catback and an intake for sound and call it a day.
