VW MK7 & AUDI 8V 2018+ DSG TUNE

Don't short shift your ECU tune and performance parts, get the most out of your modifications with the IE DSG Transmission tune for 2019+ GLI, GTI, Golf R, A3, S3 2.0T. Instantly gain increased power, higher RPM limit, faster shifts, optimized shift points, and a true performance tuned transmission. Acceleration times will greatly improve transforming your 2.0T into a fully rounded performance monster.

DSG TUNE FEATURES

  • Required for high torque IE ECU tunes
  • Lightning fast gear shifts
  • Lag time reduced when starting off in first gear
  • Drive shift mapping entirely reworked with an enthusiast in mind
  • Flashed directly through OBD-II Port (No TCU removal required)
  • Increased clutch pressure on tap for higher torque without slip
  • Temperature protection remains for safety
  • Gear hunting reduced
  • Gearbox “Torque Limiters” removed

REQUIRED FOR SELECT ECU TUNES

Required for GLI, GTI, Golf R, A3, & S3 Stage 1 high torque and all Stage 2 tune 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. To get the most out of your tune investment, a lot of features have been added to make a fully rounded performance vehicle with more aggressive launches, faster shifting, higher RPM, and optimized shift points. DSG tune requires a matching ECU Tune, do not install on stock ECU tunes. 

ALL INCLUSIVE DSG FILE, NO STAGES

That's right, your IE DSG tune is all-inclusive and does not offer expensive "Stage" upgrades. All features for any ECU stage are included in the tune and will never require unnecessary upgrade charges.

IE POWERlink DIRECT PORT FLASH TOOL

IE's POWERlink direct port flash tool is required to flash your ECU (engine control unit) or TCU (transmission control unit) and is available separately. The POWERlink tool is sold with all new IE ECU tunes and can also be used to flash your new DSG tune. If you already own an IE POWERlink unit, purchasing this file will add the credits to your cable within one working day. If you do not own a POWERlink cable, please chose to add one in the drop-down menu above.

POWERlink FEATURES:

FILE SWITCHING
The POWERLink cable allows for map switching without making a trip back to an IE Software dealer.

EASY OPERATION
Simply plug your IE PowerLink cable into your vehicle’s OBD-II port and the USB port on your Windows-powered laptop to use the included IE Flash Wizard software. The flash wizard will then walk you through the installation steps.

FLASH MULTIPLE CARS
Have a friend with a compatible VW or Audi? Share the power with up to 5 different cars with a single cable. Just add enough credits to your cable for the desired tune and power-up your entire crew.

RETURN TO STOCK ANYTIME
With the IE PowerLink, you can return your vehicle back to original ECU or TCU programming at any time.

EASY UPDATES
IE will always provide free software updates as they become available and easily reflashed through your IE PowerLink cable.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Laptop or tablet with Wifi connection and USB port running Windows 7 or newer operating system required. Powered by 32 or 64-bit processor with 1.0GHz or greater and 4GB of Ram. Windows NT not supported.

IE DSG TUNE TECHNICAL FEATURES

HIGHER SHIFT POINTS
Utilize the whole powerband of your turbocharged Gen 3 TSI with IS20 Turbo engine without the DSG interfering and shifting early.

DRIVE MAPPING REWORKED
The MQB 2.0 TSI DSG 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.

FLAWLESS OPERATION WITH IE ECU TUNES
The IE DSG Tune and ECU Tune were developed side by side on our in-house dynamometer. By running both tunes you will unlock the full potential of your 2.0 TSI Gen 3 engine and transmission.

Incredible!!!

I just switched from a Unitronic TCU tune, and let me tell you, this beats it by a mile. The flash was super fast, easy, and the options I had were plentiful. Makes my ‘21 GLI so much more fun to drive, especially since I can turn off auto upshift if! The shifts are much faster, and the transmission feels smoother and more efficient. If you’re getting a TCU tune, get this one

Game changer

I tuned my 2019 35th edition GLIa few days ago. I went with the stage 1 HT and this dsg tune at the same time. I love this tune. It’s great in combo with the extra power going stage 1 gave me. Now I always know what gear I’m in (not knowing used to drive me nuts). The gear switches are lightning fast. I thought it changed gears quick when it was stock but now it’s crazy fast. The car stays in its power band more now. Before the transmission always wanted to shift up to that next gear so the rpms were always low. I would definitely recommend the dsg tune if you’re looking to get more performance out of your ride!

Excellent DSG tune for 19' R's, better than its competitors

This tune is nothing but great! At first when I tuned my 19' MK7.5 Golf R, I was running the cobb sport+ DSG tune. Overall, the car felt very OEM+ and did not meet up to my expectations. Then, I decided I needed a better DSG tune, so I decided to give IE DSG a chance. I am not disappointed in the slightest, the car feels amazing. Every shift is very crisp and smooth, "DSG lag" is killed completely, and launch control is amazing! For anyone with doubts or not too sure if IE is worth it or not, this product is great. I was a bit skeptical since I did not see many reviews on it, but man am I happy to be switching over! The difference is night and day indeed.

Perfect DSG Tune

So I just recently got a 2019 DSG autobahn GLI and a couple days ago I got a stage 1 ECU and DSG tune on my car. I won't lie this should is how the car should of rolled off the factory floor. It's just the tip of the iceberg of what this MQB motor can put out. If your looking to give your little 4 door sedan sleeper more power to zip around on then this is the way to go. I do recommend the DSG tune for sure will be night and day difference of how the car shifts and drives. I also would like to thank Robert at MalthouseMotorWorks who helped me out with the tune he is a IE dealer in the Las Vegas area. If anyone is in the Las Vegas area is looking for IE tune for their car then he is the guy to go to. I had questions and Robert made flashing my car fast and easy and painless.

Good all round

After a couple of weeks driving a stage 1 high torque golf r with the DSG tune (7speed) I have found that the shift points are a tad off for me. Driving in Australia alot of roads are 40 to 60 kmh. At 40 the car stays in 3rd gear at 2200 rpm. 50 is 4th gear at 2000 rpm and 60 is 4th gear 2200-2300 rpm. Still changes real smooth and has quick acceleration but for just cruising at those speeds the engine just seems to rev to high. Will be keeping the tune but thought it's worth an honest review for others to know. Definitely feel the faster shifts and higher redline ratings. Hope this helps you decide if it's right for you or not.
