VAG DSG/S-tronic Tuning
The DSG/ S-Tronic gearbox is one of the most outstanding automatic gearboxes available on the market today. Its ability to change gear in a fraction of a second and predict the drivers next move is a marvellous piece of engineering. However, with all OEM systems, it can be restrictive. At Torxtuning our custom DSG Remap is designed to remove these restrictions and adjust the parameters to complement the more performance minded driver.
Our custom DSG/S-Tronic Tuning service will alter the following parameters / options:
Increased Torque Limiter
When tuning the engine management system, torque limiters are increased. However, if the vehicle is equipped with a DSG / S-Tronic gearbox the engine output will be limited by the torque limiter set in the DSG/ S-Tronic module. We raise the DSG/ S-Tronic torque limiter to match the engine torque output.
Quicker Shift Speeds
Shift speeds can be increased by up to 20%, this will reduce lag and improve the acceleration. The quicker shift speeds will also give a smoother transition between gear changes and improve paddle shift response time.
RPM Limits & Shift Set Points
RPM limits and shift set points can be adjusted in drive and sports mode. Adjusting the rpm limiter as part of the engine ECU remap is not enough on a DSG/ S-Tronic equipped vehicle. The DSG/ S-Tronic TCU will determine at what rpm the gear shift takes place.
Launch control can be activated (model specific). Launch control will allow your car to make the perfect launch every time, reducing your 0 – 60 time and increasing the fun factor.
Full Manual Mode
Even when in manual mode, stock DSG/ S-Tronic software will force the gearbox to change up or kick down etc. With our custom DSG/ S-Tronic Remap we are able to give the driver full control by preventing auto changing when in manual mode (model specific).
