WHAT DOES A DSG TRANSMISSION TUNE DO? 

IE’s Audi S4 (DL501 S-Tronic) DSG tune is all-inclusive and does not offer expensive upgrades. That’s right, there are no unnecessary upgrade charges and all features and upgrades are included at one low cost. A great deal of sportiness is added to the tune while maintaining factory smoothness and driveability that you love about the S4. More aggressive launches and faster shifts are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Also, expect acceleration and 0-60 times to improve dramatically from a larger useable powerband provided by the higher shift points. 

REQUIRED FOR SELECT ECU TUNES

Required for S4 & S5 Stage 2 dual pulley files, your new transmission tune will no longer lug the engine in drive mode or short shift the larger powerband. Clutch clamping forces are increased so the transmission can safely handle and deliver the increased power and torque. DSG tune requires a matching ECU Tune, do not install on stock ECU tunes. 

ONE TUNE FOR ALL STAGES

IE’s DSG tunes are all-inclusive without any expensive upgrades. That’s right, there are no unnecessary upgrade charges and all features are included from the outset for any level of hardware or ECU Tune Stage, one cost and you are covered for all and any future upgrades from Stage 1 to Stage 2 billion. 

USER ADJUSTABLE LAUNCH CONTROL

The purchase of an IE DSG file grants you access to customization of launch points. With several launch points to choose from you can pick what works best for your setup!

Available Launch Control RPMs:

  • 3400 RPM
  • 3600 RPM
  • 3800 RPM
  • 4000 RPM

*Some early model B8 DSG TCUs cannot have launch control added to them, as well as some replacement Mechatronics units. Non compatible TCU codes include, but may not be limited to 8K1927156AC and 8K1927156AD. You can use your IE Powerlink tool to check your TCU code. Other DSG tune features will function normally.

IE DSG TUNE TECHNICAL FEATURES

HIGHER SHIFT POINTS
Utilize the whole powerband of your supercharged 3.0T engine without the DSG interfering and shifting early.

DRIVE MAPPING REWORKED
The B8 and B8.5 S4 is designed to a fault to keep engine rpm extremely low in drive. We completely reworked this, creating a more enthusiast-friendly drive mapping which shifts a bit higher. This eliminates vibration and that constant feeling that you’re lugging the engine. We’ve reworked the downshifting aspect as well, making the transmission much quicker to deliver power when you need it. Thousands of miles of testing were accumulated and a variety of users were polled to come up with this improved drive mode.

INCREASED CLUTCH PRESSURE
Increasing the clutch pressure allows for the transmission to hold more torque without causing clutch damage or expedited wear. With the increased torque, the acceleration will be greatly increased and launches will far more aggressive. 

FLASHED THROUGH OBD-II PORT
There’s no need to remove the TCU from the car and it can be flashed in your driveway or through an IE software dealer. Additionally, having an IE PowerLink cables means you can install updates are they become available as well as read TCU and ECU fault codes.

TAKE-OFF LAG REDUCED
The clutch engagement has been reworked to reduce that annoying “DSG Lag” when moving away from a stop.

MULTIPLE LAUNCH RPMS
The purchase of an IE DSG file grants you access to customization of launch points. With several launch points to choose from you can pick what works best for your setup!

FLAWLESS OPERATION WITH IE ECU TUNES
The IE DSG Tune and ECU Tunes were developed side by side on our in-house dynamometer. By running both tunes you will unlock the full potential of your 3.0T engine and transmission. Perfect for all IE Tunes from Stage 1 to dual pulley and throttle upgrades.

IE TCU Tune

The TCU Tune was easy to install and made a big difference in my S4’s performance. You can feel the quicker shifts and how the transmission transfers power with higher clutch clamping pressure. The car accelerates faster and feels more snappy. The higher redline tops it off by allowing it to make power longer.

Fast shifts - super responsive

This tune makes a huge difference in the overall driving experience.

Firstly, you definitely notice the reworked shift points right away. It shifts faster and smoother and when it should. A lot less "gear-hunting" now.

Secondly, this seems to have completely eliminated the "DSG fart" sound the exhaust would make when shifting up during spirited driving. I actually kind of miss that sound myself.

I installed Stage 1 a while before installing this DSG tune and this tune is more noticeable to me. It feels so much quicker than just going from Stock to Stage 1 alone. I haven't tracked my car or had it on a dyno so I'm just going by feel.

Overall, very impressed! I will be coming back for more upgrades.
