IE DSG TUNING FOR AUDI S4 3.0T (B8 & B8.5) DL501 S-TRONIC TRANSMISSION

IE’s Audi S4 (DL501 S-Tronic) DSG tune is all-inclusive and does not offer expensive upgrades.

A great deal of sportiness is added to the tune while maintaining factory smoothness and driveability that you love about the S4. More aggressive launches and faster shifts are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Also, expect acceleration and 0-60 times to improve dramatically from a larger useable powerband provided by the higher shift points.

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. 

POWERlink FEATURES:

  • FILE SWITCHING 
    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.

  • EASY OPERATION 
    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.  

  • FLASH MULTIPLE CARS 
    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.

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

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

  • SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
    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

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

  • DRIVE MAPPING REWORKED
    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.

  • INCREASED CLUTCH PRESSURE
    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.  

  • FLASHED THROUGH OBD-II PORT
    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.

  • UNLIMITED LAUNCHES
    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.

  • FLAWLESS OPERATION WITH IE ECU TUNES
    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.

Much smoother shifting!
Ever since I bought my B8 S4 I've had the clunky downshifting between 3rd, 2nd, and 1st. The TCU tune completely got rid of that! I'm so stoked on it! The car feels much more driveable now and seems to have much crisper and smoother shifts than before. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because when I'm driving in Dynamic mode now, once I slowly roll to a stop, I can feel the car slightly shudder when it moves to 1st gear. It never did that before the tune. So I'm hoping that's something that get's worked out in a future update. Regardless, the car drives better than it did before the tune. I would definitely recommend this to others with the DSG transmission!

Compliments the ECU Tune Perfectly!
I was stage 1 for a while without a DSG tune, and the car felt great. Then I flashed the DSG tune on my car, and holy crap! The new auto upshift redline of 7200 (up from 6300ish) unlocked a ton of power up top. The car pulls very linearly all the way to redline, I love it. And the shifts are even faster now, with the paddles a little more responsive as well.

Around town, the tune definitely lugs the motor much less than the stock tune. I find the car is not always hunting for gears around town (25-40mph), and will hold 3rd or 4th gear so you have a little passing power available without the car having to downshift.

Launch control from 3600 is *VERY* nice.

Overall, a fantastic addition to my car. Would highly recommend, two thumbs up!
