Our Gearbox TCU remapping offers the following additional benefits over and above our engine ECU remapping:
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.
The simple answer is they do! Mass production means cheaper build costs for manufacturers. By building the same gearbox numerous times, and setting it up differently in software they can build one piece of hardware and use it in multiple models or variants within their range. If we look at the DSG gearbox used by VW/Audi the shift patterns and shift speed permitted through the same physical gearbox is far higher in S and RS models than in the standard A models.
Not at all, quite the opposite in-fact. Quicker gear shifts and earlier transmission locking provide a more efficient gearbox. A higher percentage of the engine power makes it to the wheels earlier in the rev range and the engine is driving the wheels more of the time. The result of these efficiency changes is reduced fuel consumption.

Yes, we would highly recommend a Stage 1 remap alongside a gearbox remap. We can offer you discount for having the two done together.
