TVS Stage 3 DQ200 DSG software – for tuned VAG vehicles, 2003-2008

Transform the performance of your DQ200 (02E) 7-speed DSG gearbox!

Known Issues and Symptoms:

  • Fast wear of clutch due to excessive slip
  • Gear shifts up at low rpm
  • Bearing damage
  • Mechatronic defects
  • Rattling noises during gear change
  • RPM needle unstable or increasing in steps

TVS Tuning Stage 3 DSG software highlights:

  • More responsive and better drivability in D and S modes
  • Raised torque limits (400nm)
  • Faster shifting speeds
  • Unnecessary/harsh downshifts removed
  • Bump elimination during 1st - 2nd gear shift
  • Fix for bouncing RPM needle
  • Fully customisable

    The TVS Tuning Stage 3 software includes the Drivability Upgrade and further optimises performance of the 7-speed DQ200 DSG gearbox for tuned vehicles with the following engines: 1.6 TDI, 1.9 TDI, 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI, 1.8 TSI and 1.6 FSI (2003 to 2008). 

    While the DQ200 DSG system is known to be generally strong, reliable and easy to use, there are some known issues, which can hamper drivability, especially with tuned vehicles.

    These include: lack of response (delay in shifting); harsh, unwanted kickdown and a less-than-smooth pull away from standstill. From the factory, Sport mode is too aggressive and high-revving for many situations, while in Drive, shifts may feel sluggish – both impacting on the drivability of the vehicle.

    In the same way that ECU software optimises the way an engine performs, TVS’ gearbox (TCU) software does the same for the twin-clutch DSG unit. 

    The programme removes unnecessary downshifts, allowing you to hold onto a gear for longer, but also increases the shifting speed, which provides a more responsive and enjoyable driving experience. With the clutch clamping force and torque limits both increased, the TVS DQ200 Stage 3 software can handle up to 400Nm on stock clutches.

    As with all TVS Tuning software, full customisation is available, allowing drivers to tailor their DSG performance for their preferred driving style.
