TVS Stage 2+ DQ250 DSG software – for tuned VAG vehicles, 2013+

Transform the performance of your DQ250 (02E) 6-speed DSG gearbox!

TVS Tuning Stage 2+ DSG software highlights:

  • Clutch clamping force increased to handle up to 500Nm
  • More responsive and better drivability in D and S modes
  • Faster shifting speeds up to 8000rpm
  • Torque limits raised
  • Unnecessary/harsh downshifts removed
  • Improved oil cooling
  • Fully customisable

The TVS Tuning Stage 2+ software includes the Drivability Upgrade and further optimises performance of the 6-speed DQ250 DSG gearbox for tuned vehicles with the following engines: 2.0 T(F)SI, 2.0 TDI, 3.2-3.6 V6, 1.9 TDI, 1.4 TSI and 1.8 TSI (2013+ MQB). With stock clutches it will handle up to 500Nm of torque. 

While the DQ250 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 DQ250 Stage 2+ software can handle up to 500Nm on stock clutches.

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

Please note: TVS Software must be installed at either PERON HQ or any of our UK Dealers premises. This software is not currently available as a home-flash service.
