Mk7 GTI DSG Tune

DSG Tune Shiftpoint Discussion

After working with a couple of tuners and then on my own for a while with the HP Tuners software I discuss and illustrate how the shift point selection affects the operation of the car.

The next chart shows a tune with a high engine speed upshift:

2 to 3 Upshift (High RPM)
2 to 3 Upshift (High RPM)

The next chart also shows a 2 to 3 upshift, but this tune upshifts at a lower engine speed with a lower pedal position. This can produce the “racing to a higher gear” effect.

At greater pedal input this tune upshifts similar to the tune shown above :

Mk7 GTI DSG 2 to 3 Upshift (Low RPM)
2 to 3 Upshift (Low RPM)

The next chart shows two different strategies for the coasting downshift. The blue dots show a tune that has a stock-like threshold for downshifting:
