Chiptuning has always been the root foundation of TVS Engineering. They have been on the market for over 12 years and have had thousands of cars optimized by their software and engineers. What makes TVS special is their specialized areas of engine tuning, dsg repairs and diagnostics. With all of their expertise they are able to create the perfect balance between durabilty and maximum performance of your transmisson.

Known issues that this software takes care of are poor shifting strategies, shifting at extremely low rpm's, and slow reaction when accelerating.

With this single and affordable software package we give you a solution to help your DSG to have longer lifetime and improved drivability.

Driveability Upgrade: (comes with any stage 2+ and above software)

1) Optimized D mode shift program for ultra smooth shifting

2) Optimized S mode shift program for ultra smooth shifting

3) De- or reactivation of the 1 st gear (optional)

4) Increased shifting speed

5) improved clutch cooling and thermomangement

Examples Of Driveability Problems

POOR GEAR SHIFTS: When entering a roundabout, the DSG has the wrong gear selected resulting in a poor throttle response when accelerating. This is caused by a DSG shift program which is not matching the engine. TVS developed unique shifting strategies for any application.

UNDER REVVING: The DSG up-shifts at extremely low rpm's. Generally when you are driving 40-60 km/h the DSG runs already in its 6 th gear at about 1100 RPM. When giving slight throttle the engine and gears start making audible vibration sounds. These sound will become more noticeable over time and will result in permanent flywheel damage. We can fix these problems by raising the shifting rpm's. Our unique software also has protective capabilities to reduce the frequently occuring DSG problems which will result in damages to the clutches and gearbox.

SPORTS MODE: The majority of the drivers experience drivability problems in Sports mode. The downshift rpm's are often too low or sometimes too high. We fully customize the S mode so that it matches the engine power output and driver requirements.

MAXIMUM RPM: The maximum rpm is determined based on the power output of the engine to achieve fastest performance while keeping drivability smooth. By doing this, the car accelerates faster and of course the lifespan of the engine and turbo will last longer.
