APR ECU Upgrade

The APR TCU Upgrade is here for the DQ381 Gen 2 7-Speed DSG found in the 2022+ Arteon

The DSG transmission found in the new 2022+ Volkswagen Arteon is nothing short of amazing. It’s incredibly fast and capable and requires no hardware upgrades to hold dramatically more torque than what’s possible on other transmissions. However, from the factory the transmission tells the engine to limit power and torque. Our engineers fix this by recalibrating the system to maximize torque capacity and clutch pressure to avoided transmission slipping and damage, and in doing so allows the engine to dramatically increase horsepower and torque! On the 2022+ Arteon we saw +18-55 AWHP and +23-64 AWFT-LBS of torque by doing the same. This and other changes make the TCU upgrade a substantial upgrade on any tuned vehicle!
