Custom-Code DSG Performance Upgrade Software
Custom-Code has been working with JBS the team on our 3.2 24v V6 test car for over 2 years, developing and refining the Phase 1 and Phase 2 DSG performance upgrade software to complement the Custom-Code performance engine software and JBS' Forced Induction program, optimising the launch control, shift and torque limiter functions to give the ultimate driving experience.
Custom-Code DSG Phase 1 software can be run on a standard car and complements our full Custom-Code Phase 1 ECU software.
Custom-Code DSG Phase 2 software is aimed at drivers who demand the most from their cars. With the Phase 2 DSG software aimed at cars with more significant hardware modifications; Performance exhausts, supercharger and turbo upgrades and delivers an exhilarating experience when combined with our Phase 2 or 3 ECU software, with fully custom settings for launch control, torque settings and enhanced shift points to suit your vehicle set up.
DSG Software Upgrade Specification:
Torque Limit Increase:
The keys to Custom-Codes success in tuning the DSG software comes from the command of the clutch pressures.
We have increased the DSG Gearbox's ability to transmit torque from 350 Nm up to 550 Nm while still ensuring the stability and capability of all the mechanical moving hardware within the DSG gearbox. (Torque Limit adjustable to your spec with Phase 2)
With more pressure on tap to clamp down the clutches, the additional torque applied through high horsepower applications won't strain your clutch packs.
Increased Shift Response:
The shift response has been increased by up to 20% giving a smoother transition, leading to a decrease in unnecessary clutch slippage under full load accelerations, which reduces clutch wear.
With increased shift time you also get an improved paddle-reaction-time by up to 40% in S-mode.
Increased Red Line:
Increasing the shift points gives you the command of your engine's power in the upper RPM range, we have raised the DSG transmission's rev limit to 7000 rpm in S-mode and 6800 in D-mode, as this optimizes the engine's performance range and maintains the safe operating range of the V6's valve springs. (Both adjustable to your spec with Phase 2).
With Custom-Code's performance programming, we have put the driver back in complete control.
In M-mode, automatic up-shifting at wide open throttle has been deactivated, as has kick-down, allowing you to bounce of the newly redefined rev limiter and maintain your gear at will.
When you opt to take over with the paddles in S mode, only at Wide Open Throttle will the software automatically shift at the newly defined red line. Up to 95% load, you will have the benefit of the removed up-shifting and kick-down to take control over your gear changes.
In D mode, the factory up-shift and kick-down settings are maintained.
With Custom-Code's Stage 1 DSG Software, launch control is activated on any vehicle) that did not come equipped with factory launch control.
A perfect launch is accompanied with a great 0-60 acceleration is one of the best ways to show off your performance mods. Furthermore, improving on the uneventful factory launch, we elevate the launch RPM to 4200rpm in Manual mode and 3800rpm in S-mode (Both adjustable to your spec with Phase 2); giving you a powerful and controlled launch while maintaining a safe pressure applied to the factory clutches, to provide maximum grip without slip.
In-dash Gear Display
When in D or S mode, the active gear is now displayed in the instrument cluster to the right of the PNRDS icons where it wasn't previously (R32 etc)
