PERFORMANCE MATCHED

IE's B9 3.0T ECU Tunes are fully realized performance calibrations that deliver incredible power figures. Without a matching TCU tune, the transmission can feel unmatched to the new ECU tune -leaving speed on the table. Furthermore, the TCU upgrade modifies shift speed, torque limit maps, line pressure, and launch control functions, to fully match your ECU calibration. As a result, horsepower and torque levels are raised and acceleration is greatly improved to create a complete ECU & TCU performance package.

IE’s ZF8 AL552 TCU tune is all-inclusive without any unnecessary upgrades or additional charges for future ECU Tune upgrades. All features and optimizations are included for any level of hardware or performance stage, one cost and you are covered for all and any future upgrades.

VARIABLE LAUNCH CONTROL

The IE ZF8 AL552 TCU Tune includes a variable launch control to deliver chest pounding launches from a stop. 3 different launch RPMs (street, aggressive, or race) are included to dial in the fastest launch for your vehicle and tire setup. With the optimized launch mode set in your TCU, you can launch to the moon knowing your tires will put down the maximum power needed for the fastest launch.

DRIVING ENHANCEMENTS

The factory transmission calibration has many performance short comings leaving much to be desired by the enthusiast driver. IE software engineers have completely reworked the transmission tune computer with performance driving in mind. This new transmission calibration keeps the engine and transmission in the proper gear throughout the power range in a sported driving scenario without any annoying gear-hunting situations.

RELIABILITY TESTING

IE's own tuning technology suite is used to completely reverse-engineer the factory transmission mapping, allowing our software engineers access to realign all safety protocols for the new TCU calibration. Every tune parameter undergoes months of testing on our in-house dyno systems to verify all correct conditions for peak power delivery and reliability. All driving behavioral maps undergo thousands of miles of testing and a variety of users were polled to develop the ideal driving behavior.

FAST DOWNSHIFTS

When engaging full throttle from a cruising speed, the factory TCU calibration has longer pauses when dropping multiple gears. This delay causes a large lag when you are asking for immediate power. IE's performance calibration removes these delays when dropping down multiple gears, delivering near-instant boost and power when you demand it.

GEAR OPTIMIZED RPM

The IE TCU Tune remaps each gear's RPM limits for the fastest possible acceleration. Every gear will shift at the optimal points to pull the car through the powerband as quickly as possible for the fastest conditions on road, track, or drag strip with incredible improvements in acceleration and G's. These optimized shift points occur when in drive mode, sport mode, and AMAX. The transmission limit remains 6500 RPM in all gears in manual mode, retaining complete manual control over the shift points.

Best tune on the market I've encountered

I had 034 Motorsports ECU and TCU tune and wasn't happy with the overall design and performance. I did a lot of reading and found IE. I'm glad I did because it was a night and day difference. I have the IE tune on my 2015 Audi S4 and loved it so much I just got it for my new 2019 Audi SQ5. The SQ5 ECU and TCU tune are phenomenal, only downfall is the price. I wish I could've received a repeat customer discount. I did receive a military discount so I can't complain too much, just one Con this far I've noticed.

TCU tune

This tune honestly changes the dynamics of the B9 S4 when matched with the ECU upgrade. The transmission is just so responsive and shifts so smooth. Highly recommend IE to anyone driving a Audi/VW.

Performs as advertised

Recently purchased to go with their Stage 1 ECU tune, and so far I’ve been very impressed with the combined upgrade in performance. I was initially drawn to IE (over the competition) due to the flexibility and usability of their tuning platform, and I’m glad I made that decision.
