We also offer Tuning for VAG DSG Gearboxes and the ZF8 Gearboxes found in the BMW and VAG ranges. Like with all OEM systems, these can be restrictive. Our custom Gearbox tuning is designed to remove these restrictions and adjust the settings to complement the more performance minded driver.
Our custom gearbox remapping service can 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/ZF8 gearbox the engine output will be limited by the torque limiter set in the DSG/ZF8 module. We raise the torque limiter to match the engine torque output.
Quicker Shift Speeds
Shift speeds can be increased by up to 20%, this reduces lag and improves 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/ZF8 equipped vehicle. The DSG/ZF8 ECU 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/ZF8 software will force the gearbox to change up or kick down etc. With our custom DSG/ZF8 Remap we are able to give the driver full control by preventing auto changing when in manual mode (model specific).
