Benefits of Gearbox Tuning & Calibration

Here's what professional Gearbox Tuning provides:

  • Significantly faster and smoother gearshifts
  • Eliminates judder and jerkiness at low speeds and rpms, especially just before stopping or when moving off from standstill
  • Improves acceleration at low rolling speeds, particularly between 5 to 15 km/h
  • Removes rollback when moving off uphill on a slope
  • Eliminates the noticeable delay before reverse gear is engaged
  • Activates launch control, auto-shift bypass and increased redline

Features of Gearbox Tuning & Calibration

Gearbox tuning solves a lot of driveability issues in DSG gearboxes. Here are some additional features you'll love:

  • Modified Drive mode for better drivability - gears are more closely matched to engine load & vehicle speed, with less lag & hesitation
  • All new software is based on the latest manufacturer version
  • Longer life of gearbox & clutch packs with less clutch slippage
  • Modified launch control RPM
  • Increased torque limiter & clutch holding pressure
  • Reactivation of first gear for low speed driving
  • Improved RPM matching for higher gears

BEWARE: Many lesser so-called "DSG tuners" merely hack into the DSG gearbox software and modify the gear shift points, then sell you "DSG tuning". This is less than ideal and will give you a mere fraction of the benefits professional gearbox tuning and calibration can provide.

Gearbox Repair in Singapore

AVANTAGE VAG repairs and services automatic gearboxes including Audi Stronic/Multitronic/Rtronic/Tiptronic, BMW DCT/Steptronic, Mercedes 7G-Tronic/9G-Tronic, Volkswagen DSG, Porsche Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) and other automatic gearbox applications from SEAT, Skoda, Bentley, Land-Rover, Jaguar, and Volvo.

The full range of transmission services from AVANTAGE VAG include:

  • Transmission replacement
  • Clutch replacement
  • Gearbox component repair
  • Gearbox mechatronic or control unit repair and replacement
  • Gearbox software adaption and upgrade

AVANTAGE VAG includes gearbox adaptation with every mechatronic replacement. This essential step ensures your clutch is perfectly adapted and prevents premature clutch wear. The majority of local workshops skip this crucial step as it's time consuming and requires specalised software to manage.

R-Tronic Gearbox Calibration

AVANTAGE VAG Singapore provides R-Tronic Gearbox Calibration for the Audi R8.

If you own an Audi R8 with the RTronic gearbox, you're very likely to love the car but hate the RTronic gearbox. Jerky in Auto mode, noticeable laggy in Sport, and prone to severe clutch wear - the R-Tronic in stock form is the weak link in the otherwise awesome Audi R8.

After RTronic Gearbox Calibration by AVANTAGE VAG, you'll experience smooth gearshifts (much like Audi's slick Stronic gearbox) and significantly faster gearchanges when driving in Sport mode. You'll also experience lower clutch wear rates which reduce maintenance costs.

Our Audi R8 customers have been extremely happy with our R-Tronic Gearbox Calibration.
