Gearbox Tuning

Edge Performance are pleased to offer Gearbox Remapping, allowing you to transform the performance of your vehicle. We can tune your gearbox to really enhance your drive.

We provide a range of ZF8 and DSG gearbox tuning services to complement our engine tuning and ECU remapping. Each of our gearbox tuning files are written specifically for the gearbox of your vehicle and your specific requirements as the driver.

Our tuning services will remap the gearbox TCU (Transmission Control Unit) and transform your driving experience and allow your vehicle to reach the level of performance of which it is truly capable. So, whether you want improved efficiency, more responsiveness, or a more sporty set up, a gearbox tune is just what you need.

ZF8 gearbox tuning for BMW

BMW Gear stickBoost the performance of your BMW with ZF8 retune. We offer BMW Gearbox Remapping for all F series ZF automatic transmissions, allowing you to transform the performance of your vehicle. We can tune your ZF8 gearbox so that you can get the most out of your BMW.

We have developed the BMW (TCU) transmission control unit by modifying the limitation within the control unit. This also aids with stage 1 and 2 tuning to the engine control (ECU)

So why do BMW gearbox remapping?

All BMW automatic gearboxes have maximum torque limit set by the manufacturers which prevents the vehicle reaching its maximum power – we adjust those limits so your car can reach its true potential.

Our gearbox tuning solution for BMW’s with ZF8HP automatic transmissions allows us to unlock your gearbox to bring many performance benefits including:

  • Increased torque limiters (enhanced with stage 1 and 2 maps)
  • Faster shift speed
  • Smoother transition of gears
  • Modified shift points
  • Launch control for later 8hp gearboxes

The transmission tuning software we use is highly reliable and safe and will transform your overall driving experience. All new 8-speed BMW auto models, whether rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel drive, use the ZF 8HP gearbox and these can be transformed once the previously set limits have been re-set.

By changing the transmissions behaviour will ensure that your BMW is used to its full potential, well outperforming its previous factory standard set-up.

What ZF8 tuning options do we offer?

Gearbox tuningEdge Performance offer three different gearbox calibrations tailored to your BMW driving needs:

Stage 1 TCU tune – A stage 1 software tune focuses on bringing additional comfort and economy to your drive and could (depending on vehicle on how you drive) bring you miles per gallon improvements of up to 15%.

Stage 2 TCU tune – A stage 2 software tune is for drivers wanting faster shifting and an overall more responsive driving experience, without sacrificing comfort.

Stage 3 TCU tune – A Stage 3 software tune is for driver who really want to get the most out of their vehicle. It is the most sporty set-up and allows the vehicle and it’s auto transmission to perform at level it was previously prevented from doing when it was set up at the factory.

DSG gearbox tuning for Audi and other vehicles

DSG Gearbox tuningEdge Performance also offer DSG gearbox tuning for Audi and other vehicles. The DSG (Direct-Shift Gearbox) is a semi-automatic gearbox. It has two clutches, meaning that as you select one gear, the next is automatically pre-selected, enabling much faster gear changes. The DSG’s dual clutch transmission is more fuel efficient than conventional systems as less energy is wasted transferring the engine power to the wheels.

The DSG was the first dual-clutch transmission. However, plenty of other manufacturers have developed DSG-style gearboxes, each with their own names and abbreviations. These include the likes of Citroen (DCS), Ford (Powershift), Mitsubishi (SST), Nissan (GT-R), Peugeot (DCS), Porsche (PDK), Volvo (Powershift) are all such examples.

So why do DSG gearbox remapping?

All automatic DSG gearboxes in Audi and other vehicles have maximum torque limit set by the manufacturers which prevents the vehicle reaching its maximum potential. At Edge Performance we can adjust the limits of your vehicle to improve its performance.

Our custom gearbox tuning solution allows us to remove restrictions and adjust settings to bring about performance benefits including increased torque limiters, faster shift speed, smoother gear transition, modified shift points and launch control.

By raising the DSG torque limiter we can set it to match the engine torque output which had previously been limited by the engine management system. Adjustments to your gearbox system can increase shift speeds by as much as 20%, reducing lag and therefore improving acceleration, as well as providing a smoother transition between gear changes. With a gearbox tune we can adjust the RPM limits and shift set points in your vehicle to provide you with the type of drive you want, while launch control access will reduce your 0-60 time and increasing the fun element of your drive.

The transmission tuning software we use is highly reliable and safe and will transform your overall driving experience. By changing the transmissions behaviour will ensure that your vehicle is used to its full potential, hugely outperforming its previous factory standard set-up.

For maximum performance gains why not book an engine remap at the at the same time as your gearbox tune and really start seeing the full potential of your drive.
