How to increase the power of Cupra Formentor KM7 VZ5 2.5 TSI 390cv without remapping?

The Formentor VZ5 sports car features a special Audi-derived engine with a 5-cylinder architecture and a 2.5-liter displacement. The designation is 2.5 TSI and this engine develops a power of 390cv. It is obviously an turbocharged gasoline engine, if not from the power, it is certainly recognized from the torque, since this has a value of 480Nm (specific torque of 192 Nm per liter). All this is transferred to the road via a 4Drive all-wheel drive and a 7-speed automatic DSG dual clutch transmission. Just to complete this brief presentation, let's say that the Cupra Formentor KM7 VZ5 2.5 TSI accelerates from zero to 100 in just 4.2 seconds.

As happens with other sports cars and even supercars (and on this topic we invite you to read us every week because there will be some great ones), there are demanding drivers among the Formentor VZ5 customers who demand more. But the Cupra Formentor KM7 VZ5 2.5 TSI is not remappable. Moreover, as we have seen on other models, remapping the ECU has some drawbacks, in any case, as mentioned, it is not possible (at least at the time of writing) to remap this Cupra sports car. The question then arises spontaneously.
