Direct Shift Gearbox ECU Tuning

DSG Remapping by AMTuning

As well as the custom ECU remapping software and engine tuning, we offer custom DSG tuning and gearbox tuning to ensure your engine performance, modifications and tuning are working in perfect harmony with the level of your gearbox tuning i.e. performance exhausts, performance filters in addition to our remaps.

DSG Software Tuning

Increased DSG Shift Response –

The DSG shift response can be improved by up to 20% giving you a smoother transition between gears, leading to a decrease in clutch slippage under full load acceleration, releasing more power quicker, and of course reducing clutch wear.

With increased DSG shift time you also get an improved paddle-reaction-time – DSG paddle response time is increased by up to 40% in S-mode once tuned.

DSG Torque Limit Increase

Torque limitation is normally changed as part of the engine tuning but if your gearbox is not tuned too you are missing out, as the DSG also has the torque limited. Lifting on the engine torque is of course only partially effective – isn’t it time to test our DSG tuning and feel the difference?

Tuning the DSG gearbox’s ability to transmit torque is part of the work we will carry out – changes are made from 350 Nm up to 550 Nm while ensuring the stability and capability of all the mechanical moving hardware within the DSG gearbox. The torque limitations of both your engine and gearbox are now custom tuneable to your specification with AMTuning

Increased Red Line

RPM limitation is normally changed as part of engine tuning, but if your DSG gearbox is not tuned as well you could be missing out! Increasing the shift points of your DSG gearbox will give you command of your engine’s power in the higher RPM range; we can raise the DSG transmission’s rev limit to work with your engine’s new power and tuning settings.

Launch Control 

DSG tuning launch control can also be activated and tuned on many cars.

A perfect launch from standstill can now be achieved, giving maximum 0-60 acceleration times; this is the best way to show off your car’s new performance and tuning and it is great fun too of course!

If you are looking to take your tuning to the next level and bring your modifications and engine tuning in harmony with your DSG gearbox, our DSG gearbox tuning is just the answer. And like all our tuning files, our DSG tuning comes with our no quibble money back guarantee and insurance – time to let the horses loose!



We do understand there are many tuning providers to choose from, from low cost add on boxed or the more complex multiple channel tuning boxes units to other remapping providers and even those “cheap” remaps. By using AMTuning and its dealer network you are not using just “another tuning provider”: AMTuning provides services from a range a vendors that have been developed over the last 20 years and uses some of the very best tools available in the world today

Will my fuel consumption go up

No, in fact, quite the opposite. Even on a performance tune, if you continue to drive the car in the same way as you did before the upgrade, your fuel consumption will probably improve. Of course, if you have a track day motorsport tuning map installed on the car, and you are driving the car under the conditions in which full-on motorsport tuning is intended, you’re likely to find a slightly reduced MPG figure.

Will the life span of my engine reduce

No, not at all if you use when you use AMTuning, Sadly some tuning companies will offer large increased figures and engines can be over tuned, ‘stressing’ the engine, transmission, cooling systems, brakes etc, and reducing the life span and reliability of the car. This is why it’s so important to choose the best. Choosing to have your car mapped by AMTuning, as an approved dealer you many hours of R&D so you can be assured you don’t damage your vehicle
