Presenting the AWE Tuning Performance Pulley Suite
The AWE Tuning Stage 2 Performance Pulley suite is available as:
AWE Tuning Stage 2 Performance Pulley Kit - Includes AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley (Pulley, Belt, Related Hardware, no tool) and G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Performance Software, as well as a handheld switcher.

AWE Tuning 3.0T Pulley Removal Tool – Just the tool itself. Pulley and Software not included.
G.I.A.C. DSG DL501 S-Tronic Software – A highly recommended addition for all S-Tronic equipped cars.
Through use of the smaller-than-stock AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley, the kit spins the 3.0Ts supercharger faster, creating more boost pressure while staying within the tested parameters of the unit. This increased boost pressure is used in conjunction with G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Performance Software to maximize the potential of the stock Eaton supercharger once coupled with the AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley.
The stock Audi ECU software directs a valve inside the supercharger to open, then waste (or “bleed off”) additional boost pressure. When the AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley is added, even more boost is created, as is the potential for even more bleed off. In steps G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Performance Software… preventing bleed off from happening by safely keeping the bypass valve closed, then optimizing ignition timing and air fuel ratios.
The outcome? The AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley and G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Performance Software work together to ensure that maximum boost is harnessed, redirected and maximized, resulting in efficient and effective use of boost pressure, and safe, reliable, dramatic power increases for your 3.0T.
