APR 2022+ VW GTI (MK8) TCU Upgrades are here! (US/CA)

The DSG transmission found in the new 2022+ Volkswagen GTI 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! We saw 25-32 WHP and 34-44 WFT-LBS of torque, depending on octane, simply by adding our TCU Upgrade on top of our Stage 1 ECU Upgrade on an otherwise stock MK8 GTI. This and other changes make the TCU upgrade necessary on any tuned vehicle.
