See the performance tab for power results and dyno charts.

Q5 2.0T STAGE 2

IE Stage 2 ECU tune is the next step of power and delivers the most performance potential available from your stock engine and turbocharger from an upgraded performance downpipe. Maximum torque and horsepower gains are realized across the powerband with 337-359HP and 410-445ft-lbs with options for 91, 93, or 104 octane fuel. See below for a complete list of stage 2 requirements.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Our tuning masters not only deliver more engine power but also include extensive adjustments and features to make every bit of your driving experience more refined and enjoyable.

COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION

Your Q5 will do more than pull harder and drive faster; you will feel more connected and in control of your newly refined and enthusiast-programmed Audi. IE calibration engineers use advanced equipment to completely rewrite the entire engine management programming to improve all drive mapping sections significantly. Enjoy reduced throttle lag, linear power delivery, removed top speed limiters, smoother throttle control, and more.


PERFORMANCE MATCHED

Unlock the full potential of your iE B9 2.0T Stage 1 and Stage 2 engine (ECU) tunes with our matching transmission (TCU) tune. Without it, your power gains and performance features are limited, leaving untapped acceleration and power on the table. Upgrading to the iE TCU tune significantly enhances shift speeds, eliminates torque limiters, increases line pressure to prevent transmission slip, and introduces user-adjustable launch control functions. Experience a dramatic enhancement in launch power, pulling force, shift responsiveness, and overall acceleration.

  • Lightning fast shifts -further improves acceleration and 0-60 times
  • Full power from ECU tunes -removes power robbing torque limiters
  • Adjustable launch control -dial in the perfect launch for your setup
  • Enables gear display -dash always displays current gear in drive/sport modes
  • Full torque during AMAX shifts -torque reduction programming removed

Important note: Compatible with 2017-2020 DL382 DSG "Gen 1" transmissions only. TCU tune is currently incompatible with all 2021+ "Gen 2" TCU versions. In some rare cases, 2019 and 2020 model year vehicles may be equipped with unsupported Gen 2 variations.

VARIABLE LAUNCH CONTROL

Experience chest-pounding launches with our iE transmission tune featuring adjustable launch control. Tailored for optimal performance, choose from three distinct launch options: street, aggressive, and race. Each option increases the launch RPMs, allowing you to customize the launch experience to suit your vehicle and tire setup for the best grip and take-off power. Each launch setting offers two RPM launch and AMAX options, easily controlled by the throttle pedal:

  • Apply 100% throttle input without engaging the kickdown switch to launch from the minimal chosen RPM without AMAX.

  • Engage full pedal pressure while activating the kickdown switch to launch with an additional 400RPMs and trigger AMAX in all shifts, delivering the most aggressive launch and pull strategy.

AGGRESSIVE

3400 RPM

3800 RPM (W/AMAX)

RACE

Note: AMAX is an advanced shift programming that greatly improves accleration by maintaing power to both transmission clutches simutaniously while transitioning between gears. This feature delivers a strong advantage in a competitive drag racing type scenario.

DRIVING ENHANCEMENTS

The factory transmission calibration often falls short in meeting the demands of performance enthusiasts, leaving much to be desired. iE's TCU tune addresses these limitations by entirely reworking the transmission drive-mapping strategy, catering specifically to the enthusiast driver. Beyond driving improvements, our TCU tune introduces additional features designed to enhance the driving experience:

  • Reduced take-off lag time from a standstill.
  • Enables gear display on the dashboard in both drive and sport modes.
  • Eliminates factory torque pull during AMAX shifting.
  • Increases protection by automatically reducing engine power if transmission temperatures climb too high.

So much more power

I don't have access to a dyno near me, so I have to rely on the feel of my car. However, the modifications I made, including this and a transmission tune, have significantly improved the power and acceleration of my 2018 Q5.

Feels like a different car, especially after the TCU tune.

This is my first time tuning myself. I've only had APR tunes in the past on my A4, that I always had to get done at the shop.

Tuning process:

This diy tuning process is super easy. You plug the dongle into your OBD port, put a trickle charger on your battery, and make sure the hood is open. The checklist of steps are displayed on the iphone app, and it doesn't let you start till you do them all. I didn't time it but I think it took about 30 mins to download and apply the tune. I did the stage 1 tune first and drove it for a couple months, and then bought the TCU tune when it came out last month. The TCU tune process was the same as the stage 1, took about 20-30 min to complete.

Driving performance:

The stage 1 tune felt great. Strong low end torque, you can feel when you get on the gas, but drives just like normal, when you don't smash it. Before the TCU tune there was a slight delay, and then a very strong pull of torque, much stronger than stock. After the TCU tune the acceleration is became more instant and continuous. The difference in the way the car drives is noticeable all the time after doing both ECU/TCU tunes together. It just feels like a faster car all around, at all speeds. Knowing what the before-and-after feels like, I would say the stage 1 tune is incomplete without the TCU update. You definitely need to do these 2 upgrades together for the full potential. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to make their drive more exciting. It just feels…

LOVE THE POWER!!!!

I loved the power bump it was the wake-up this car needed, i already had the intake that I bought from the company but this tune just topped it off. Off the line the torque is crazy, and driving the car is very fun. I'm considering doing the transmission tune next.

Excellent tune and power delivery!

I have previously had APR Stage 2 on an Audi A4, Unitronic Stage 2 on a 2019 MK7 GTI, and now Stage 1 IE on my 2020 Q5. This tune is incredible! The awful stock throttle lag is now gone which I found unbelievably annoying, and it now has loads of torque for quicker acceleration. Literally a night and day difference. First time I have tuned a car myself and although a bit nerve racking, it was straight forward and easy. Small detail though...after the tune the instructions say to start the car, turn off the car, then start the car again. The car will NOT start after the tune until you turn it off first. This gave me a mild heart attack. But once I did that all was well! I wish IE would make a downpipe to take advantage of their Stage 2 tune. They do not have one nor were able to recommend one. I feel like it's not necessary for power, but would like it more for an additional exhaust sound. Awesome all around though, great job IE!
