I received my TCU+ Tune from DTUK today and will install it to use this week. I have not purchased the device to eliminate any lag, or to improve the gearchanges, as I’ve been happy the way they are, but to go with my tuning box. I am hoping it will allow for the increase in power and torque the box gives to be implemented upon better.

On my short urban drive to work I have noticed a difference immediately despite the gearbox still having to relearn. Much better in traffic, smoother and less ‘snappy’ or jerky. Also the gear changes are nearly unperceivable and I found myself looking at the gear indicator to see which gear it was in.
More to follow, have to try all the modes and manually using the box…

Whoa, sport mode is bit feisty…

 

More to follow..

Installed TCU upgrade this morning. What a difference. Pulls harder in low gears, dead spots gone, shifts way smoother on harder acceleration.

David in the UK – Customer with 2018 Audi S3 2.0 TFSI 310PS S-tronic

Yeah have to agree. Pulls harder, gear changes better,  Launches are f**king quick! jolts my head right back and just trying to work out of the box and Bluetooth will give me a time! .

Just got home and it does really complement the box. Did a good handful of launches and it’s really quick, scary quick. Feels like the box has grown in power! Feels like there is Much more torque. Manual for me is most impressive, sadly i just kept running out of road! The car just kept pulling and pulling the only thing I would say A few gear changes were still laggey going from 1-2-3 but mainly from a standing start. Once rolling didn’t have any issues

Adrian in the UK – Customer with a 2018 B9 S4 3.0 TFSI 354PS S-tronic

Flashed yesterday afternoon – did over 300 trouble free, fun and enjoyable miles today – with some very smooth and quick gear changes, noticeably less lag and generally a gearbox behaving and feeling like it really should do. No downsides noticed – and on a good (efficiency and ACC) 70mph run on the M4 was seeing 40+MPG. Thanks!

Same here, with the 7 speed DSG I’m doubtful would be much improvements, especially not £400’s worth!

Ok Gents I just went for a brisk 20 mile drive on some fast A roads. I’ll reserve writing a full review until I’ve done a few hundred miles but I will say of the 5000 miles I’ve put on my car from new I think the last 20 I just did were the most enjoyable. I test drove a new Panamera 4S recently which ironically basically has the same 2.9L V6 engine in as the B9 S4/5 and my gearbox now feels and behaves like it did in the Porsche. Manual is now completely sublime, you can feel the extra torque in all driving modes and the changes are smoother both at low speed and when pressing on. I’ll report back again when I’ve done some more mileage but initial impressions are if you’re sitting on the fence about this don’t, just do it.



I have a feeling that this item will be a bit like Pedalbox, when we first launched this people were sceptical but even ive been surprised at the feedback weve been receiving.

But I suppose time will tell :)

Having no experience with DSG's other than short spells in hire cars and being unimpressed I can well imagine that the TCU would actually be similar to a pedal box in terms of gearbox response times, but more importantly for those that enjoy driving I'd imagine the shift points could be altered in Drive mode so they were at a more realistic point than the current (false)economy based set up and earlier than in Sport where it just needlessly screams the engine revs.

If I had a DSG I'd be trying one out and i'm not easily pleased!  :laugh:


In terms of modified cars then I'd say one of these would be essential as the increased clamping would help with handling the extra torque and the quicker shift times would benefit the added power and torque being applied to the road.

Just my mildly informed opinion.  :wink:
I've been out in a remapped R with remapped DSG and was impressed.

some more feedback...

Barry in the UK with a VW Golf MK7.5 R 310PS

Golf R 7.5
Yeah, I would say it’s made a big difference to the car. The torque form the car is amazing. Gear shifts are defiantly quicker and the launch control am getting now is very impressive.
Probably the best thing I have done to the car yet I would say.
Andrew knows I like a moan if am not happy😜 but would defiantly recommend this product its a thumbs up from me

Amir in the UK VW Golf MK7 300PS

My car: Mk7 R JB4 complete Stage 2.

So I tried the TCU chip yesterday and first impressions are good 👍

I’ll be waiting for the advised hard run in on 100 miles before I make my final conclusion.

Things I noticed so far:

Car definitely shifts much faster!
Can feel the torque even more.
Has drastically lessened the lag I’d get coming out of a side road full throttle onto a main road. The thing just flys now!!

Does anyone know if this is a insurance notifiable change?

I know its not more power, but neither is a pedal box...

I would say yes as your making the car non standard. Just all depends if you want to tell the insurance company as a lot of people don't even declare the pedal box. I'm sure some know it all will be along soon to correct me  :whistle:
