DCT Tune

Today I had a DCT tune done and the difference is quite amazing
Whilst the DCT is as good as it gets, I found some changes were a bit laggy and there was some sloppiness when shifting down in D mode with stock firmware

Changes ranging from silky smooth in normal driving mode to fast and aggressive shifts up and down in M3 mode. Don't miss the chance. Give me a call on 0434555660 to book a DCT tune. Only available over the next couple of days while Alex from Gintani USA is still here

The standard cable won't do it, Gintani and ESS only do DCT tunes in house at the moment, but DCT tunes are a planned release when the cable is finalised

Not for a while Leigh, the self install cable is done and being manufactured now. The cable will facilitate all changes from a simple cat delete, to engine remapping for superchargers and eventually DCT tunes using your own laptop computer. The cable is VIN locked. The guys are working on a stand alone version of the DCT tune that can be done outside the workshops.
I'll certainly post progress, but it is worth the wait. I was lucky enough to have mine done when the Guys from Gintani were here doing the SuperCharger overviews
