Gearbox Tuning

TRANSFORM YOUR GEARBOX

DRS Tuning can provide transmission tuning services for the majority of the VAG DSG and BMW ZF6HP Gearboxes. These upgrades can be applied to a completely stock vehicle improving its driving characteristics or added to tuned vehicles to get the most from them. Just like our range of ECU remaps, each gearbox tuning file is custom written specifically for the vehicle and driver requirements. DSG tunes can include launch control, shift and torque limiter functions and setting adjustments to give the driver the best possible driving experience.

Modifications to the DSG settings can be made to improve shift speed, responsiveness and smoothness.

For the more demanding drivers among you we have DSG fast road setup this is a custom tune with a slightly more aggressive feel, it is suitable for modified and tuned vehicles, with this setup your engines performance and vehicles modifications will be perfectly balanced to your DSG calibrations the modifications can include, performance exhausts, sport cats (or de-cat), DPF delete, supercharger or turbo charger upgrades.

DSG TUNING OPTIONS & BENEFITS

INCREASED SHIFT RESPONSE

The shift response can be increased by up to 20% providing a smoother gear to gear transition, meaning a reduction of unnecessary clutch slip under full load acceleration protecting your clutch from premature failure.

With the reduced shift times you will also benefit from improved paddle-reaction-time by up to 40% in Sport mode.

TORQUE LIMITER MODIFICATIONS

The vehicle torque limiter/s are tuned as part of our ECU remap, however if your vehicle is equipped with DSG transmission then you could be missing out as the DSG control unit does have its own inbuilt torque limiters also. Through tuning the DSG control unit we are able to release the extra torque produced from your tuned engine whilst still ensuring the stability and capability of all mechanical moving hardware within the DSG transmission.

RPM LIMITER ADJUSTMENTS

Here just like the torque limiter tuning as above your DSG has control of RPM limiters for each gear there would be no point to make adjustments the engine ecu RPM limiter without the same changes applied to the DSG maps.

Increasing these shift points will give the driver full control and command of the engines power in the upper RPM ranges and we will set the DSG rev limit to work with your engines current setup.

LAUNCH CONTROL

Launch control can be activated in most cars but is particularly effective in DSG equipped vehicles.

A perfect launch can be achieved every time reducing 0-60 acceleration times by maintaining a perfect throttle balance to provide maximum traction off the line.

BMW TUNING OPTIONS & BENEFITS

On the BMW gearboxes we have the options of using pre-defined xHP tunes or requesting a custom setup for any track use. The pre-defined options deliver;

  • Optimized Shift Strategy for up/downhill driving
  • Optimized Warmup Behaviour
  • Optimized Torque Converter Lockup in 1st/2nd/3rd gear
  • Lowered minimum RPM limit manual mode
  • Adapted Torque Limits for Tuned engines
  • Gear Display in Dash in D/S/M Modes (where supported)

STAGE 2

  • Optimized D & S Shiftpoints for better acceleration in part and full throttle situations
  • Firmer, sportier upshifts in D/S/M mode
  • Faster paddle response time
  • Optimized Shift Strategy for up/downhill driving
  • Optimized Warmup Behaviour
  • Optimized Torque Converter Lockup in 1st/2nd/3rd gear
  • Raised Torque Limits for Tuned engines
  • Gear Display in Dash in D/S/M Modes (where supported)

STAGE 3

  • Optimized D & S Shiftpoints for better acceleration in part and full throttle situations
  • Race-like upshifts with TQ increase
  • Shift times approx. 50% faster in S/M Modes
  • Shift times approx. 25% faster in D Mode
  • True Manual mode (no automatic upshift in M mode)
  • Automatic Rev-Matching (Throttle
  • Blip) on Downshifts in S/M Modes
  • Faster paddle response time
  • Optimized Shift Strategy for up/downhill driving
  • Optimized Warmup behavior
  • Optimized Torque Converter Lockup in 1st/2nd/3rd gear
  • Even more raised Torque Limits for Tuned engines
  • Gear Display in Dash in D/S/M Modes (where supported)
