The DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) system is licensed to the Volkswagen group by BorgWarner and is basically 2 manual gearboxes with separate clutches contained within a single housing which enables much faster gear selection. The DSG boxes are electronically controlled by Temic Controllers and have the following generations available:


• DQ200 • DQ250 • DQ380 • DQ500 • DQ511 • DL501


TecArt have developed a range of calibrations and have gone even further by developing our system to give you ultimate choice of options. For diesel or petrol applications, our system will allow you to specify exactly which options you would like and the exact requested values. Once the values have been entered our bespoke developed system will automatically generate the software.


*Increased Maximum Torque - The DSG controller has a maximum torque allowance set internally, therefore even if you tune the engine ECU to provide torque figures in excess of the gearbox allowance, it will be restricted to that of the DSG controller. Raising the maximum torque allowance of the DSG releases potential power gains from the engine ECU.


*Increased RPM Limiter - When a vehicle is equipped with DSG, the RPM limiter must be set both inside the engine ECU and also the DSG controller or it will not take effect. Our software can ensure that both controllers have the same limit set ensuring a wider rev range.


*Increased Shift speed - The actuation of the gear selector is controlled by the Temic Controller. Our software upgrade can increase the shift speed by up to 20%... faster gear selection translates directly into faster sprint times.


*Launch Control - Launch control can be activated (model specific). Launch control will allow your car to make the perfect launch every time, reducing your 0 – 100km/h time and increasing the fun factor.


*Kickdown delete - The DSG controller also controls the kick down function. We are able to stop the auto kick down which will enable the vehicle to be driven in gear at lower RPM’s without auto change.


*Full Manual mode - Even when in manual mode, stock DSG software will force the gearbox to change up or kick down etc. With our custom DSG Remap we are able to give the driver full control by preventing auto changing when in manual mode.
