  • BFT Custom Gearbox Tuning - Prices from £150

    Written in house for your vehicle and driving style, here at BFT we speak to you direct about your driving style and what we can do to improve your daily driving experience.

    Increased Torque Limiter

    When tuning the engine management system torque limiters are increased, however if the vehicle is equipped with a DSG gearbox the engine output will be limited by the torque limiter set in the DSG module. We raise the DSG torque limiter to match the engine torque output.

    Quicker Shift Speeds

    Shift speeds can be increased by up to 20%, this reduces lag and improves acceleration. The quicker shift speeds will also give a smoother transition between gear changes and improve paddle shift response time.

    RPM Limits & Shift Set Points

    RPM limits and shift set points can be adjusted in drive and sports mode. Adjusting the rpm limiter as part of the engine ECU remap is not enough on a DSG equipped vehicle. The DSG ECU will determine at what rpm the gear shift takes place.

    Launch Control

    Launch control can be activated (model specific). Launch control will allow your car to make the perfect launch every time, reducing your 0 – 60 time and increasing the fun factor.

    Full Manual Mode Even when in manual mode stock DSG software will force the gearbox to change up or kick down etc. With our custom DSG Remap we are able to give the driver full control by preventing auto changing when in manual mode (Model Specific).
