VAG vehicles have a number of different. Most of them fall into one of these three categories: manual, dual-clutch (for example S-Tronic on Audi models, or DSG on Volkswagens and Skodas) or torque converter automatics such as the 8-speed ZF 8HP.
All of these are operated by electronic control units dedicated to controlling the way transmissions shift, their speed, smoothness, modes of operation and more. Our expert transmission tuning services can dramatically change the way these transmissions work.
We can adjust just one aspect of its operation, tailor one specific mode, change the way it reacts and make transmissions work exactly the way you want them to work.
Here are just some of the services we offer for various kinds of transmission tuning. Each of them is within safe margins:
Torque Limits Modification
This allows us to change the amount of torque that is delivered in various driving conditions.
This tuning lets you shift your manual transmission without lifting your foot off the throttle, greatly improving acceleration times for manual transmissions.
This tuning lets us adjust how smooth your gearbox shifts, which removes one of the biggest downsides of some automatic gearboxes. For example, the DSG transmission can be jerky at low speeds. We can solve this for you.
Shift Points Modification
If you think your automatic transmission shifts too late and reduces your fuel efficiency, or you think it shifts too soon and dulls your performance, this tuning service is for you
Shifting Speed Modification
If your transmission takes too long to shift, we can make it faster without jeopardizing its reliability.
Clutch Clamping Pressure Modification
After engine tuning that results in significant increases of power, most often with Stage 3 tuning projects, clutch clamping pressure may not be hard enough and the clutch can start slipping. We can adjust the clamping pressure within safe margins and save you thousands that you would spend on a new, more heavy-duty transmission.
Launch Control Modification
Launch control is one of the most revered features of modern automatics. We can adjust every aspect of the way it works, including RPM level
Launch Control Activation
Some transmissions have launch control ability, but it is not activated. We can activate it for you and add this amazing feature for a portion of the price that you would spend on a vehicle with launch control
Left Foot Braking
As default in most vehicles, if you press both accelerator and brake at the same time while driving, the power is cut. However, we can adjust this to keep the power flow and enable left foot braking that racing drivers employ, eliminating any loss of power. If you are looking for an additional way to shave seconds off your lap times, this is it.
Free Manual Mode
Many automatic transmissions have a manual mode, but it is often overridden by the transmission control unit (TCU). This means that you cannot shift manually whenever you want to, or that the gearbox will shift up when you don’t want it to. We can change this and enable full manual mode that gives you total control.
Manual Mode Delay Adjustment
Automatic transmissions have manual modes, but there is often a pre-programmed delay that makes shifts highly unnatural and too late. We can adjust this delay to make your shifts more immediate and much smoother.
RPM Limit Adjustment
Every transmission has an RPM limit after which it will shift up or stay in the same gear but not rev higher. We can adjust this limit to suit your driving needs, but always keep it within safe margins.
We offer even more transmission tuning services, including adjustments in individual modes, so if you are in need of a service not mentioned above, feel free to let us know and top VAG tuning experts will customize your transmission.
