IE DSG Tuning For Audi C7 & C7.5 S6 & S7

The IE DSG Tune for your Audi C7/C7.5 S6 or S7 4.0T delivers increased power, higher RPM limit, faster shifts, optimized shift points, improved launch control and additional transmission performance features when paired with the matching ECU tune. Acceleration times will greatly improve turning your tuned 4.0T V8 into a fully rounded performance monster.

IE's S6 & S7 4.0T Tune is a fully realized performance calibration that delivers unmatched power figures. Without a DSG tune, the torque output from Stage 1 and above exceeds the transmission torque limit and will slip the clutch packs. Furthermore, the TCU upgrade modifies the RPM limit, shift points, throttle maps, launch control functions, paddle response, and temperature management to fully match the new ECU calibration. As a result, horsepower and torque levels are massively raised and acceleration is greatly improved to create a complete ECU & DSG performance package.

Maximized Shift Points

The IE DSG Tune remaps the shift points RPM limits and optimized gear by gear for the fastest possible acceleration. From launch and through every gear the DSG will shift at the optimal points to carry the car through each gear as quickly as possible. This will guarantee the fastest shift points on the road, track, or drag strip with incredible improvements in acceleration and G's. These optimized shift points take place when in Drive mode or Sport Mode, when in manual paddle shift mode the transmission limit remains 6800 RPM in all gears leaving full manual control over the shift points.

Shift RPMs:

  • 1st Gear: 6800 RPM
  • 2nd Gear: 6400 RPM
  • 3rd Gear: 6000 RPM
  • 4th Gear: 5800 RPM
  • 5th Gear: 5600 RPM
  • 6th Gear: 5300 RPM

Adjustable Launch Control

DSG launch control has been completely reworked to deliver chest pounding launches from a stop. The factory delay felt when releasing the brake pedal is greatly reduced for a faster reaction time. 3 different launch RPMs are included with your DSG Tune so you can dial in the fastest launch for your setup and conditions. With the proper launch RPM set in your TCU, you can launch to the moon knowing your tires will put down the maximum power needed for the fastest launch.

IE Powerlink Direct Port Flash Tool

IE's POWERlink direct port flash tool is required to flash your ECU (engine control unit) or TCU (transmission control unit). The POWERlink tool is sold with all new IE ECU tunes and can also be used to flash your new DSG tune. If you already own an IE POWERlink unit, purchasing this file will add the credits to your cable within one working day. If you do not own a POWERlink cable, please choose to add one in the checkbox menu above. 


    The PowerLink cable allows for map switching without making a trip back to an IE Software dealer. This allows you to test different TCU maps and features such as launch points.

    Simply plug your IE PowerLink cable into your vehicle’s OBD-II port and the USB port on your Windows-powered laptop to use the included IE Flash Wizard software. The flash wizard will then walk you through the installation steps.  

    Have a friend with a compatible VW or Audi? Share the power with up to 5 different cars with a single cable. Just add enough credits to your cable for the desired tune and power-up your entire crew.

    With the IE PowerLink, you can return your vehicle back to original ECU or TCU programming at any time.

    IE will always provide free software updates as they become available and easily reflashed through your IE PowerLink cable.

    Laptop or tablet with Wifi connection and USB port running Windows 7 or newer operating system required. Powered by 32 or 64-bit processor with 1.0GHz or greater and 4GB of Ram. Windows NT not supported.

IE DSG Tune Technical Features

    High shift points result in faster acceleration and power gains by increasing the usable powerband.  

    The B8 and B8.5 S4 is designed to a fault to keep engine rpm extremely low in drive. We completely reworked this, creating a more enthusiast-friendly drive mapping which shifts a bit higher. This eliminates vibration and that constant feeling that you’re lugging the engine.  We’ve reworked the downshifting aspect as well, making the transmission much quicker to deliver power when you need it. Thousands of miles of testing were accumulated and a variety of users were polled to come up with this improved drive mode.

    Increasing the clutch pressure allows for the transmission to hold more torque without causing clutch damage or expedited wear. With the increased torque, the acceleration will be greatly increased and launches will far more aggressive.  

    There’s no need to remove the TCU from the car and it can be flashed in your driveway or through an IE software dealer. Additionally, having an IE PowerLink cables means you can install updates are they become available as well as read TCU and ECU fault codes.

    From the factory, the S4 only allows 200 launches before the feature becomes unavailable. With the IE DSG Tune, the fun police have been sidelined and you can now launch your car as many times as you like.

    The IE DSG Tune and ECU Tunes were developed side by side on our in-house dynamometer. By running both tunes you will unlock the full potential of your 3.0T engine and transmission. Perfect for all IE Tunes from Stage 1 to dual pulley and throttle upgrades.
