APR Presents the DL501 S Tronic TCU Upgrade for the B8 / B8.5 S4 & S5!

Posted on May 14, 2015 – 9:38 am

APR is pleased to present the ultimate transmission control unit (TCU) upgrade for the DL501 Gen 1, Gen 1.5 and Gen 2 S Tronic transmissions! APR’s TCU upgrade is available for 3.0 TFSI platform vehicles and is conveniently flashed to the vehicle’s TCU through the OBD-II port with user definable options selectable at the time of install.

APR’s TCU upgrade goes beyond the overly simplistic norm of raising a few limiters, and offers a wide gamut of changes designed to completely enhance the driving experience. With an in-depth knowledge of the transmission’s inner workings and control strategies, APR’s engineers have improved many aspects of the transmission from accelerative performance to daily drivability, while also incorporating new features including several typically reserved for higher-end Audi Quattro GmbH RS models.

Depending on the driving scenario, APR’s calibration experts have created multiple operating modes designed to deliver ideal performance for the given driving condition. When using launch control, the transmission enters a maximum acceleration mode designed to provide the fastest possible acceleration through a heightened application of torque, optimized shift points and shift strategies among other performance related enhancements. Under blistering, near wide-open throttle, the transmission enters a different state of performance with shift maps optimized for power delivery on vehicles with modified engine software. Manual and Tiptronic mode are tailored to the driver’s desired auto up/down shift preferences at the time of install include several features to enable quicker paddle response times and faster upshifts on Gen 2/B8.5 models. Finally under part-throttle daily-driving in both Drive and Sport mode, the transmission remains calm and smooth. Common clunks and driver annoyances are addressed and the transmission comfortably responds to the driver’s input without constantly and aggressively seeking the highest gear possible.

Feature List

  • 7,200 max shift point with gear dependent overshoot protection.
  • User adjustable 3-Step multiple launch control RPM.
  • User definable* max launch control RPM up to 6,000 RPM.
  • User definable* manual mode downshifts (on/off).
  • User definable* manual mode upshifts (on/off).
  • Launch control enabled on all models.
  • Launch control response enhanced for quicker launches.
  • Launch control limits raised from 200 to 3000 launches.
  • Launch control Max acceleration mode enabled for the fastest possible acceleration.
  • Multiple acceleration modes defined for various driving scenarios.
  • Manual mode / TT mode paddle response time optimized.
  • Manual mode / TT mode shift optimized with gear dependent thresholds on Gen 2/B8.5 Models.
  • Torque intervention limits raised, while retaining temperature protection.
  • Temperature management modified.
  • Transmission coolant pump optimized during high temp scenarios.
  • Gear display enabled in Drive and Sport.
  • Optimized Drive and Sport mode shift maps.
  • Downshift “lockout” disabled below previous gear’s max RPM.
  • First gear, rolling-stop, “clunk” addressed.
  • First gear “short shift” addressed.
  • Significant power increase on applications meeting peak power well above the vehicle’s factory defined shift points.

*APR’s DirectPort Programming suite allows the end user to tailor the TCU upgrade to their needs at the time of installation.

Drive (eco) and Sport Mode:

APR’s engineers have paid close attention to the factory shift maps in drive (eco) and sport mode to help ensure a more pleasurable driving experience. In each mode under high-torque and high-rpm situations, the shift points are increased progressively just below the transmissions new maximum shift point of 7,200 RPM. Gear dependent overshoot protection prevents the transmission from hitting the rev limiter prematurely. Finally using launch control enables the maximum acceleration mode while in Sport.

Under low-torque, low-rpm part-throttle situations, both drive mode and sport mode behave similar to stock. The shift points are raised to prevent the transmission from over aggressively seeking seventh gear prematurely in drive mode and to provide a more sporty feeling in sport mode. The first to second gear short shift has been addressed and while rolling to a stop, the transmission will no longer prematurely downshift to first gear, resulting in a clunky transition.

Manual and Tiptronic Modes

APR’s user definable options allow the end user to configure how manual mode operates. The kick-down switch, which is responsible for an automatic downshift in manual mode, is enabled by default but can be disabled at the time of install. Likewise, the auto upshift that occurs near the new 7,200 RPM redline can also be disabled if the end user chooses, allowing the engine to bounce off the limiter like a manual transmission. For safety’s sake, the first to second auto upshift is always enabled. The transmission does not lock out any manual downshifts so long as the shifting does not result in an engine RPM above the max shift point. In all situations, paddle delay is greatly reduced allowing for more responsive shifts to take place. On Gen 2/B8.5 models, using the paddles and shifter, above gear dependent comfort thresholds near 3000 RPM, will result in lightning fast gear changes as the transmission enters a new “quick shift” upshift mode. Lastly Tiptronic mode is a temporary manual mode accessible in drive (eco) and sport modes by pressing the paddles on the steering wheel. While in this temporary mode, auto upshift and kick down switch are enabled.

Launch Control

APR’s 3-Step launch control is unlike anything else in the market. At the time of flashing, the user chooses a maximum launching RPM up to 6,000 RPM. When activating launch control, up to three launching RPM’s are available, allowing the end user to choose the best launching RPM based on the current conditions!

At 100% throttle with the kick-down switch engaged, the vehicle will select the highest launching RPM. At 100% throttle with the kick-down switch not engaged, a lower launching RPM is activated. Finally, at roughly 50% throttle the transmission chooses the lowest launching RPM. When properly dialed in, the user is left with incrementally higher launch points ideal for the street, track and sticky tires.

Utilization of launch control results in the transmission entering the maximum acceleration mode. During this mode, intervention between a shift is minimized, resulting in faster acceleration that keeps the driver planted to the back of his or her seat. Furthermore, the transmission’s coolant pump is fully optimized to keep oil temperature within the desired operating temperature.

Launch control is activated on all models, including those without it from the factory. The conditions necessary to enable launch control have been tweaked to make activation easier and the delay typically present after lifting the brake and beginning of the physical launch has been greatly reduced. Lastly the factory 200 launch limit has been raised 1400% to 3000 launches!

Recommendation: When using launch control, excessive wheel spin will not improve acceleration and may cause undesirable behavior. APR suggests using lower launch limits near 4,000 RPM under low grip situations. Maximum launch RPM is only ideal with drag slicks / radials on a well-prepped drag strip.

S Tronic Temperature Management

Temperature management is an important part of the DL501 transmission. While some may simply remove temperature protection routines all together, or mistakenly raise temperature protection torque limiters sky high and claim increased cooling performance due to zero transmission intervention, APR’s TCU upgrade only allows the maximum safe temperature levels before intervention. Under high stress scenarios, such as launch control, the transmission’s cooling pump runs at maximum speed until the desired transmission temperature is achieved.

Unlike the factory intervention routine, which allows for nearly no torque to be transmitted through the transmission at all after limits are crossed, APR’s over temp intervention allows for a limited amount of torque, enough so the vehicle can be safely driven off the track or pulled to the side of the road during intervention. In keeping the vehicle moving, airflow continues across the radiators, which in turn keeps coolant temps low and aids in removing heat from the factory DL501 oil coolers to restore full operation.

Torque Limits

Various factory torque intervention limiters are raised to their maximum value to eliminate unintended torque intervention, across the rev range, during normal and spirited driving. However, important and critical limiters are kept in place or only slightly modified, such as those related to temperature protection, to prevent premature damage to the transmission in dangerous scenarios.

Gear Display Indicator

In drive (eco) and sport mode, the vehicle’s multi function display will now indicate the currently selected gear rather than a generic D or S.

Acceleration Improvements

APR’s engineers were able to improve vehicle acceleration through enhancements such as better launch control, higher shift points, and measurable reductions in shift duration and shift intervention as illustrated above.

The graph above shows longitudinal acceleration G-Forces, and the below graph shows vehicle speed over time on an APR Stage II B8 S4 with race fuel. APR’s TCU upgrade provided stronger acceleration after the launch which carries to a higher redline shift point. During the shift, very little intervention took place, keeping G’s high and the driver planted in the seat during the quicker shift. Stock, however, suffered more losses, longer shift durations, and even more extreme losses and durations during the common “short shift” issue. Vehicle speed was greatly affected as is evident by the noticeable deviation in acceleration at 40 MPH on the graph below.

The APR TCU equipped vehicle continued to gain in speed over the stock setup thanks to higher shift points, quicker shifts, and less torque intervention as illustrated in the graphs. 0-120 MPH was reduced by .75 second over the stock TCU and .97 seconds over the stock TCU exhibiting the “short shift” issue!

Reported figures measured using a P-Box on a US Spec 2012 B8 S4 with an APR Pulley, APR CPS, APR Exhaust, APR Intake, APR Stage II software and race fuel. Results will vary depending upon location, environmental conditions, vehicle, transmission, vehicle health, operating conditions, temperatures, fuel grade, tires, suspension setup, other variables and other modifications.

Increased Power

On some models, the transmission’s maximum RPM is set to as low as 6,400 RPM, which is well below the max engine speed as defined by the ECU upgrade. In doing so the engine is unable to produce peak power, as it typically occurs at the engine’s max RPM. Through increasing the max shift point, peak power grows further and results in an additional 20-30 horsepower depending on model, stage and octane as illustrated below.

Reported wheel figures measured using APR’s in house Dynapack Dynamometer with a US Spec 2014 B8.5 S4 in AWD mode with an APR Pulley and APR Stage II software, using SAEJ1349 correction and an average of multiple runs. Crank figures are estimated based on the measured wheel figures. Results may vary depending upon environmental conditions, vehicle, transmission, vehicle health, operating conditions, temperatures, fuel grade, dyno type, dyno setup, other variables and other modifications.

The APR Difference:

APR DirectPort Programming:

APR’s DirectPort Programming is now available for the Temic Tricore DL501 Gen 1, Gen 1.5 and Gen 2 transmissions. Any APR Dealer in the world, connected to the Internet, has direct access to APR’s latest TCU upgrades for installation directly over the vehicle’s OBD-II port. This completely eliminates the need to remove and open the TCU and can be uninstalled at any time!

APR TCU Upgrade Creation:

APR’s engineers have taken a direct and custom approach to calibrating the TCU. All too often others create a generic calibration that is forced across a wide range of different vehicles and transmission versions. Unfortunately this generic method of copy and paste tuning can result in some undesirable effects, such as slow up shifts and downshifts, torque interventions, stumbling, immobility and general incompatibility. In some extreme cases, damage to the transmission can occur. With many factory TCU variations available for the transmission, APR’s engineers have painstakingly ensured every TCU upgrade is created using the transmission’s original file to ensure the ultimate experience!

APR TCU Composer:

APR’s proprietary TCU Composer is used for altering the transmission management system. With full access to every table, map and variable within every TCU, APR’s Calibration Engineers are not limited to the handful of pre-defined maps.

APR TCU Assembly:

APR’s Electrical Engineers have the ability to alter the code structure of the TCU. Through code-level changes, APR’s Engineers are able to add future features to the TCU otherwise impossible through calibration changes alone.

    APR High Output 2.0 TSI Gen 3 ECU Upgrade

    Posted on March 23, 2015 – 8:30 am

    Achtuning is pleased to present APR’s ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 engine. APR’s ECU upgrade is available in octane-specific variations and is conveniently flashed to the vehicle’s factory ECU through the OBD-II port without any physical modification to the factory ECU.

    APR’s ECU upgrades are one of the best horsepower-per-dollar modifications for the new 2.0T engine. The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is designed to work without requiring other changes to the vehicle’s hardware. With the ECU Upgrade alone, APR’s Calibration Experts measured higher peak figures of 379 ft-lbs of torque and 354 horsepower with 93 AKI octane fuel. Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 98 ft-lbs of torque and 74 horsepower. Even higher figures were achieved using race fuel. For those looking for a more modest bump in horsepower and torque, lower output software is available. In both cases the increase in horsepower and torque directly translates to an exceptionally quicker vehicle.

    Acceleration

    The results were astounding. By simply adding the APR Stage I ECU upgrade, the US spec 2015 Golf R DSG test vehicle completed every test quicker than the stock vehicle by a large margin. 0-60 MPH times were reduced to 3.8 seconds while the 30-130 MPH test was completed 5.9 seconds faster! Acceleration tests were conducted all the way to 140 MPH, which was reached in 9.1 seconds faster with APR Stage I Software.

    Vehicles with the following ECU IDs can come through NOW for an ECU upgrade!
    * VW Golf-R NA MY2015 2.0L TFSI CYFB 8V0906259E S0002

    Posted on February 27, 2015 – 9:00 am

    With over half a decade of development poured into this platform, APR’s Engineers are pleased to deliver several free upgrades to our existing customers. APR Stage I, Stage II and their K04 Turbocharger ECU upgrades are now revised with APR’s new calibration strategies designed to produce a fantastic driving experience with more power and torque on tap!

    APR’s calibration experts spent months working with the various ECU, hardware and octane configurations to deliver a driving experience second to none. Major improvements were made to the way the throttle behaves, leaving the driver to feel more connected to the vehicle than ever before. With control and response maximized, APR’s engineers set out to increase power while keeping factory comforts in mind during part throttle driving. Engine load, valve lift, cam phasing and boost levels were all optimized to ensure the engine was breathing as freely as possible for maximum output. Ignition, lambda and other aspects of the direct injection fueling system were tweaked to raise and refine power further. The end result is a fantastic leap in performance and response that wakes up the engine sooner in the RPM band and carries horsepower and torque further towards redline.
