    ECU tuning for ALH- with Q-Pro



    This package covers all TDI between model years 2000-2003, with the ALH 90 hp engine.


    About ECU tuning

    While our model for TDI performance includes mechanical components like the turbo, intake, exhaust, camshaft, cylinder head, and so forth, that's only part of the picture. At the end of the day, there's just no avoiding the influence of the ECU on every aspect of the engine. Even with the very best mechanical components, it's ultimately the ECU tuning that makes everything work together as a balanced, functional package.


    Great tuning is the foundation of our philosophy of seamless, cost effective upgrades. This lets the customer build and upgrade with confidence... with our proven upgrade packages.


    ECU tuning is an essential part of our balanced TDI concept... that goes great with our:




    • -precisely calibrated injectors featuring Bosio nozzles,
    • -upgraded Silent Design Clutches from Southbend,
    • -tested and proven Turbocharger upgrades
    • -Colt Billet Cams
    • -KermaFlow Stainless Exhaust Systems





    We have learned so much over the 10+ years, that our ECU tuning has become really sophisticated.There's so much work behind the scenes to create the best engine tuning calibrations, that go hand in hand with our nozzle and calibration work... the upgrade turbos... and the other components. We are finding that the ECU tuning is the difference that can make it a tremendous success.


    When we sell it here, then we fully support it here, so you know our ECU tuning compliments our upgraded equipment perfectly. Whether you are a weekend tinkerer or dedicated professional mechanic, you can always count on us to see you through the project with a minimum of hassle. After all, you bought the car to drive, not work on it!




    Our ECU Tuning is made-to order to YOUR specifications, and we can support a wide range of modifications. Whether it's a completely stock car, or nearly twice the original horsepower and torque, or more, we've got you covered.



    Whether you upgrade a little, or upgrade a lot...Kerma's Custom Tuning approach provides a powerful foundation so you can confidently build a great car. And when you buy the upgrade parts from us, the retuning is free.



    Our goal is to make the car ownership experience a pleasure. The real joy that comes from driving a fuel efficient car- that becomes really fun to drive.  


    Q-Pro Flash Programmer - a KERMA innovation

    This tuning package includes our very popular Q-pro device. It's a standalone, menu driven programmer, about the size of a paperback.The Q-pro is convenient and very simple to use. 


    • Touch screen - Menu-driven device, about the size of a paperback.
    • Stores your stock factory tune and up to two modified tunes
    • Very simple to use- menu driven and untuitive.
    • If you can use e-mail on a PC you can use the Q-PRO
    • Connects to the diagnostic port on your vehicle for commincation with the ECU
    • It also reads and clears Diagnostic Troubleshooting Codes.
    • Easy to return to stock programming at any time


    The convenience of Q-Pro makes upgrade tunes a breeze any time you purchase equipment upgrades from kermaTDI. So this is perfect if you choose to start with a tune, and then add nozzles later, then a turbo after that. We simply e-mail you a new upgrade tune to support your equipment upgrade - free of charge.

    And if you sell the car, and the ECU is restored to stock, your Q -Pro can be used on the next vehicle - all you need to buy is a tune for a the new car and reuse the programmer.

    After you order, we will e-mail detailed instructions and ask for some information about your car. We are always available to answer questions at 877-537-6283 or tuning@kermatdi.com

    The Q Pro works on Win XP, Win Vista, Win 7, Win 8 and ... Mac that can dual boot into Win XP or Win 7

    1. Great Customer Support

      I purchased the Q Pro tuner in order to improve my fuel mileage on my "01 TDI. The first modified tune that was sent to my did improve my torque throughout all RPM ranges, but dropped my overall average mileage by some MPG. Not quite what I wanted after a few emails back and forth with Charlie he was able to send me an economy tune which has improved my mileage about a mile per gallon currently, but I am also running in colder temps now with studded tire on due to weather. I am currently getting about 51 MPG. Not bad for 240,000 miles on a 4 door. Thanks Charlie I will be talking with you when I get ready to do my next timing belt change in the spring to make sure that I get my timing set for optimal. on 11th Jan 2018

    2. Great Performance and Customer Service

      After acquiring my Q-Pro I was on the phone quite a bit until I got it working. They picked up everytime and answered my questions. Once i got it working it was very easy to use. I am very impressed with the power increase. I'm excited to see what happens to my mpgs now. on 10th Dec 2017

    3. Great products and customer service!!

      Ordered the Q loader and programming, Charlie responded quickly with instructions and information about the process. I sent in my information and being a Friday afternoon I expected to receive the programming the next Monday ....to my surprise I got the email Saturday and was able to load my program several days earlier than what I was planning. Great service, awesome communication and very friendly!

    4. easy and fun

      this whole process thus far has blown me away. i got DLC764 nozzles, with the hot swap calibration, and the tune. the Q loader was very easy to get up and going. and had my new tune in under a day from when i emailed my stock file and build sheet. this tune has wowed me. i am absolutely in love with this tune. cant wait to get some more play money saved up and see how much further I can push. on 27th Jul 2017

    5. Just as described

      It's incredibly easy to use and the directions provided are spot on. Makes it easy for your software to keep pace with your upgrades. on 23rd Jul 2017

    6. Awesome jump in power, very easy to use

      I was kinda put off by the amount of steps needed to complete the tune......i was wrong, very easy to use and quick to get tunes back. And the power increase is like night and day on 4th Jun 2017

    7. More than pleased

      Charlie is by far the quickest at tune returns I have ever been accompanied with.. I was in a rush to get the tune installed and explained my situation to them and he literally had my tune done and emailed back to me with the modified tune in under 30 minutes.. only complaint I have is I have went into limp mode a few times, and now my clutch is slipping but to kerma and Charlie's defense my ALH has 406k miles on it so the clutch issue was already to be expected soon.. and I'm in a way proud to say the tune blew my expectations out of the water- and it making my OE clutch slip is almost a sense of accomplishment-- knowing the tune is safe and hot enough to slip the clutch,so the laser gains are most definitely there!!! And legit. I'm very pleased with my overall outcome and the whole experience with kerma and Charlie.. but kerma you need to seriously step up your website because there should be an option on the reviews to add 10 stars or 20 instead of only 1-5 star reviews. on 1st May 2017

    8. What a fantastic jump in power!

      I did just pp764 nozzles, southbend clutch and this tune. It feels like a completely different car. Well worth the cost for this huge improvement. Charlie was a pleasure to work with and answered all my questions very quickly. on 9th Feb 2017

    9. Worth every penny

      Perfect way to tune your tdi with ease. Runs great, pulls great. Very happy with the purchase. on 3rd Dec 2016

    10. Car feels totally different

      I love the simplicity of not having to send your ecm out to be programmed using the qloader. I sent my stock file and received my new one the next business day, and wow did it wake it up. It comes into boost correctly and permits no smoke. on 22nd Oct 2016

    11. Amazed

      Did everything it claims to. Engine runs, sounds and feels better. Boost schedule is correct now, response is lightning quick. EGT is cooler. My flash was in the mailbox 12 hours after I sent the original read. Very quick turn time. Very happy.

    12. awesome service and quick shipping

      I order my tuner and got it a few days after I ordered it. I followed the directions it came with and then emailed my stock ecu info and i received my tune with in less than an hour after i sent it to them. This tune really wakes your car up and it makes it more fun to drive. I cant wait to get my next upgrade. on 8th Jul 2016

    13. Great programmer and tune!

      Quick turnaround. After submitting the questionnaire and receiving the Q loader, I expected to wait a few days before I got the tune back. Boy was I wrong as it arrived the next day a Saturday no less. Easy to install following simple instructions.
      No disappointment with the tune either. As others have said it really "wakes up" the TDI. Delivers as promised.
      on 13th Jun 2016

    14. 5 star!!!!

      This programer I would give 4 stars to. But the tune is way more than 5 stars. I couldn't believe how much power and torque he could get out of a stock turbo. And with my DLC 764 it hardly smokes at all! on 10th Jun 2016

    15. Very pleased!

      Kerma TDI is the best place for all your performance needs! The Q loader is easy to use and the results are amazing! on 5th Jun 2016

    16. Easy and painless

      Nothing but grins from me! Easy to setup, and quick turnaround with the tune email.

      I can't wait for the next upgrade now.
      on 2nd Jun 2016

    17. Very impressed!!!!!

      I just wanted to take a moment and write a review about this item and Charlie.

      The Q-Loader is so simple to use. Getting everything going was simple and they give you all the information you need to know. I got the Q-loader application and stock tune pulled towards the end of the business day 4:45pm PST. With a new B&W Series 7 on the agenda for installation the next day, I wasn't sure if I would have the tune back by the time the turbo was finished. Needless to say I'm writing the review this very day I sent my stock tune. I'm looking very forward to tomorrow having the turbo and the tune!

      Cheers Charlie! Hats off to your prompt work and passion!

    18. Satisfied customer great service!

      Yeah, my car's back on the road. Easy to use, very quick turn around on the modified programming. I'm excited to get going on the next power upgrades! Thanks KermaTDI. on 4th Mar 2016

    19. made me "giggle like a kid on Christmas"

      This loader really needs no review it's very simple and easy to use, but I will give a review about the guys behind the programing/tuning at kerma that send you your tunes.... they are awesome and really know what they are doing and the return time is amazing on getting your tunes via email... and they care about your love for diesels and won't just sell you something to sell it, the tunes was exactly what I requested it to be in my list requests in the online form you fill out for the tune... I've has this about 2 weeks and just because of how well it works and how much it's saves me I have already purchased more for my 2000 vw mk4 alh... on 19th Dec 2015

    20. Awesome

      Just got my Kerma TDI Q-loader for my 2002 Jetta, and wow,my car pulls effortlessly all the way through the RPM range, with no increase in smoke. If your thinking about a tune for your TDI, stop thinking about it and call the guys at Kerma TDI. on 10th Dec 2015
