Gearbox Remapping & Gearbox Tuning

As well as your engine having an electronic management system (ECU) to control how your engine operates, modern gearboxes also have an electronic management system (TCU – transmission control unit) that controls the auto gearbox, which you can also have remapped.

Remapping your gearbox can be done on its own, but is usually carried out in conjunction with an engine remap to further improve the performance & overall driving experience & feel of your car, van or motorhome.

As the standard gearbox map is often the limiting factor in the performance of many vehicles, especially when the engine is remapped, tuning & recalibration of your gearbox with a remap is sometimes required to remove torque limits in the gearbox TCU, allowing you to take advantage of the additional torque produced by your remapped engine.

So, to get the best performance from your vehicle with an auto box, we’d suggest tuning both the ECU & TCU control units to match each other, and we offer a package (at a reduced cost) if you have both remaps carried out together.

Gearbox remaps are available for most of the common TCU’s such as the ZF and DSG gearboxes found in the modern BMW and VAG group ranges.

Audi Gearbox Remapping & DSG Remaps

One of the most popular brands for gearbox remapping is the Audi range, which uses the direct-shift gearbox or DSG (Direkt-Schalt-Getriebe in German), and is often referred to as an S-Tronic gearbox.

Simply described, this is actually two separate manual gearboxes and two clutches contained within a single gearbox housing and working as one unit, enabling quicker gearchanges up & down the box.

There are quite a few variations of DSG gearboxes, and some are more able to be tuned & re-calibrated via a TCU remap than others, but there are many benefits to remapping a DSG as can be seen below.

Benefits Of Audi DSG Remap

The range of possible benefits you could achieve from a tuned Audi gearbox remap are:

Although this is a list of the possible benefits you could get from a DSG remap, it is not always possible to remap all of these functions on every DSG gearbox variant.

You are best to speak to one our technicians to discuss what improvements are possible for your specific model of Audi DSG gearbox remap.

Audi DSG Auto Gearbox Remaps Range

There is not just a singular DSG unit, there are various different models fitted depending primarily on the power output of the engine, and where it sits in the model range.

Here is a list of the most common DSG’s in modern Audi’s:

We are able to install a gearbox remap on most of the DSG range, but you are best to discuss your specific engine/gearbox configuration with our technicians to establish if you could have the DSG remapped, and what benefits you’d get with a tuned DSG gearbox.

'It's made a massive difference'

From the minute I contacted Ace Remaps the service has been great. James the engineering turned up on time and was very professional. I had a SQ5 engine and gearbox remapped and OMG it’s made a massive difference and extra 50bhp and 100Nm torque. We even got a 2nd car done. Great service Ace Remaps😀

BMW Gearbox Remapping & 6HP/8HP ZF Gearbox Remaps

Another very popular brand which greatly benefits from a gearbox remap is the BMW range of vehicles. A ZF Gearbox is fitted to the majority of modern BMW’s and the standard tune can be somewhat frustrating for owners.

Our BMW gearbox remaps for most of the BMW ZF gearbox range will give you significant improvements in behaviour and performance. 

Tuning your BMW with a recalibrated gearbox remap will compliment your engine’s ECU remap greatly, and will work hand in hand with your engine’s enhanced performance output.

'Pulls much greater'

Great service from James today. Glad I opted for the gear box remap too, the gear changes are seamless. The remap has made a noticeable difference too, pulls much greater and smoother low down. Highly recommend this company, very professional and knowledgeable

'The results are amazing!'

I had my BWW 335D X-Drive done with by Ace Remaps about a month ago. I first had the performance engine remap, I followed that up with a gearbox remap to compliment the engine remap. The results are amazing! The performance increase is fantastic and the car really shifts! However, it still maintains the comfort of poodling along if need be. I can highly recommend Ace Remaps.
