Gearbox ECU Tuning

Direct Shift Gearbox ECU Tuning

DSG Remapping by AMTuning

AMTuning provides a range of gearbox tuning for the VAG DSG gearbox range. The TCU (Transmission Control Unit) tuning we carry out is an excellent complement to any ECU remapping. Like all our ECU remapping and tuning, each of our TCU tuning files are written specifically for the vehicle and driver, not just off the shelf.

We provide TCU tuning which is custom-tailored to the driver and vehicle. Each DSG tuning file can include launch control tuning, shift and torque limiter tuning and adjustments to give you the ultimate driving experience through your paddle-shift gearbox. It is not at all subtle and for your total peace of mind, our DSG tuning, of course, comes with up to a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Improve gearbox shift speed, response and smoothness

Being able to offer Performance remaps in-conjunction with our TCU tuning maps offers a great combination for any car, offering light modifications for any DSG gearbox that can be made to improve shift speed, responsiveness and smoothness of the gearbox and power delivery. Significant gains in torque delivery can be achieved; track day and sports enthusiast drivers will simply love it.

Each TCU remap offers improvement in TCU shift speed and a significant ¼ mile and 0-60 improvement. All TCU remaps carried out by AMTuning offer a measurable, demonstrable, and very noticeable change in your car’s performance. You will really enjoy these changes and that’s a money-back promise.

Enhanced Shift Points, quicker gear changes

At AMTuning we can offer fully customised TCU gearbox tuning offering enhanced shift points, quicker gear changes, launch control, and torque settings to suit your vehicle set up, the difference after tuning will be most dramatic, making the use of your TCU paddle shifts so much more fulfilling and giving you true track experience and performance.

For our more demanding and spirited drivers, we can go a little more custom with our gearbox and TCU tuning, very suitable for tuned, high performance and modified vehicles. As well as the custom ECU remapping software and engine tuning, we offer custom TCU tuning and gearbox tuning to ensure your engine performance, modifications and tuning are working in perfect harmony with the level of your gearbox tuning i.e. performance exhausts, performance filters in addition to our remaps.

Gearbox Software Tuning

Increased Shift Response 

The shift response times can be improved by up to 20% giving you a smoother transition between gears, leading to a decrease in clutch slippage under full load acceleration, releasing more power quicker, and of course, reducing clutch wear.

With increased shift times you also get an improved paddle-reaction-time – paddle response time is increased by up to 40% in Sport mode once tuned.

Torque Limit Increase

Torque limitation is normally changed as part of the engine tuning but if your gearbox is not tuned too you are missing out, as the DSG/BMW/Renault* gearbox also has the torque limited. Lifting on the engine torque is of course only partially effective – isn’t it time to test our DSG/BMW/Renault* tuning and feel the difference?

Tuning the TCU on vehicle gearbox’s ability to transmit torque is part of the work we will carry out – changes are made from for example, 350 Nm up to 550 Nm while ensuring the stability and capability of all the mechanical moving hardware within the DSG/BMW/Renault* gearbox. The torque limitations of both your engine and gearbox are now custom tuneable to your specification with AMTuning

Increased Red Line

RPM limitation is normally changed as part of engine tuning, but if your gearbox is not tuned as well you could be missing out! Increasing the shift points of your DSG/BMW/Renault* gearbox will give you command of your engine’s power in the higher RPM range; we can raise the transmission’s rev limit to work with your engine’s new power and tuning settings.

Launch Control 

Some options allow the tuning launch control can also be activated and tuned on many cars, a perfect launch from a standstill can now be achieved, giving maximum 0-60 acceleration times; this is the best way to show off your car’s new performance and tuning and it is great fun too of course!

If you are looking to take your TCU tuning to the next level and bring your modifications and engine tuning in harmony with your gearbox, our DSG/BMW/Renault* gearbox tuning is just the answer. And like all our tuning files, our DSG tuning comes with our no-quibble money-back guarantee and insurance – time to let the horses loose!
