Default TVS Engineering DQ381 SW


I have the 7R prefacelift and DQ250 6 speed DSG box. A recently drove a stock facelift 7R with the DQ381
My first initial test drive did not impress me much. The new 7 speed gearbox is not as smooth as my 6 speed gearbox.
And under WOT and LC. The box is acting up badly. It's like on/off during shifts.

As I am at APR stage 1 Hi torque file and TCU sw. Hi was eager to tune his car.
So today was the day at last.
The car was flashed with APR ECU stage 1 Hi torque sw v2.3.1 and 98 octane MAP.
And TVS Engineering TCU stag 2+ sw.

Now I can only say Wow! It's hard to describe, but the car has transformed. I already knew that the car would be fast, but we did not expect that the gearbox would transform the car in this way. I must say I can't understand how Volksvagen messed up this gearbox by making the stock OEM software so badly.
Now with the TVS sw the car is so smooth and the shifts are so fast. My friend is all over the moon, and super pleased with his new car.

Guys. I really can't recommend this TVS sw enough for all of you DQ381 / 7 speed boxes.
Even if stock ECU sw. (no tune) I would recommend this TCU sw from TVS Engineering. It's great
Just wanted to share my experience.
