VR Tuned DSG Transmission Flash Audi S5 B8 DL501 - VRT-DSG-S58T
One of the most popular upgrades to do to the Audi S-Tronic transmissions is a tune. Also known as a DSG (Direct-Shift-Gearbox) flash, the Volkswagen Audi Group utilizes the DL501 dual clutch 7speed transmission in all of it's vehicles using a variant of Audi's longitudinal engine. The DL501 transmission is like the original 6speed DSG with a concentric dual wet multi-plate clutch. This particular variant uses more plates and a major change to the DSG's lubricating system was done. The DL501 was designed to increase reliability, and has a torque handling limit of up to 440ft/lbs of torque. So why is this such a popular upgrade? Well, tuning the DSG can greatly improve the way your vehicle drives. If you are looking for faster gear changes, remove that kickdown effect, and raise the rpm to which the gear shift happens, then the VR Tuned DSG S-Tronic Transmission Flash is for you!
VR Tuned uses the Frieling iFlash
to be able to work with all 2006 and up DSG control modules via the OBDII port. With our OBDII solution, you are able to ID the firmware of your vehicle with the iFlash software. Once you have the ID, we then use our database of VAG files to find the matching original firmware, to which we create the new tuned DSG S-Tronic file. The question of "is this a generic or custom DSG tune", can easily be answered. When you identify your firmware, we must take that matching original decoded file and tune it to what is optimal for your vehicles transmission performance. Each customer will have a different tune based on firmware and any requested settings where applicable.
To do the transmission flash, all you need is our OBDII cable and a Windows based laptop or tablet to do the job! We can incorporate features that you would find on the highest RS models to the intro platforms to give you blistering fast shifts and performance. Much like an ECU tune, when you are driving normal, the vehicle will behave normal. This is the same for the transmission as it will perform and function normal unless you are getting after it with increased throttle. The driver will feel more involved with the car similar to a true sequential gearbox or manual transmission. Holding the throttle at a certain throttle percentage will keep the transmission from jumping to too high of a gear. This can be very annoying for certain situation where you want to keep the revs higher. Each mode of the vehicles transmission is dialed to deliver results for your input to the accelerator. The VR Tuned DSG Flash gives you the enhancement when you want it!
The DSG Tune does not affect your vehicles ECU. This is directly programming your DSG module only. Some might ask if the DSG flash can change your top speed limiter or change a check engine light? The answer is no as these are functions related to the Engine Control Unit (ECU). We do offer ECU programming for these vehicles. The OBDII cable can also perform a ECU flash for you when you purchase a VR Tuned ECU Flash. When coupled with the DSG Tune, VR Tuned can make your Audi purely unstoppable!So what can you expect from the DSG Flash?
