TRANSMISSION TUNE

All stages of IE ECU calibrations for the C7.5 A6 & A7 are compatible with the matching IE ZF8 AL551 Transmission TCU Tune and is highly recommended to reach the advertised power figures. Without a matching TCU tune, the transmission will short shift the powerband at 6300 RPM vs. the ECU tune's peak power at 7200RPM -leaving power on the table. Adding the TCU upgrade also modifies shift speed, torque limit maps, line pressure, and launch control functions resulting in a complete ECU & TCU performance package.

E85 ETHANOL

E85 fuel unlocks the most performance potential from our ECU tunes for your Audi A6 or A7 3.0T. Ethanol contains tons of oxygen, burns cooler, and has a high resistance to knock. This provides more horsepower and torque than running conventional gasoline and is more readily available (in most states) and less expensive than race gas. Safeguards are included within the E85 ECU calibrations to adjust for ethanol as low as E60 to allow safe fill ups even if the ethanol content is lower than advertised. E85 is an optional fuel map included with all tune purchases.

 

BRAKE BOOST

Commonly used in roll racing, Brake Boosting allows you to build extra boost by applying brake pressure while accelerating. Release the brake pressure for a "rolling launch" or extra surge of power. Brake Boost is included on all tune stages.

 

INCREASED RPM

Take full advantage of your supercharger with a larger power band. RPM limits have been raised to 7200RPM in all stages. This higher RPM limit not only extends the power band, but also unlocks 20+HP in the upper RPM range! Transmission TCU Tune is required to unlock higher RPM.

OPTIMIZED COOLING

To combat power-robbing heat soak generated from the supercharged engine the factory coolant pump calibration has been modified in all ECU Tune stages. This new configuration runs the coolant pump at 50% duty when the ignition is keyed on pushing coolant through the charge coolers and reducing heat faster without the engine running. This helps avoid heat soak and provides faster recovery in-between runs or while staging at the track. During driving or when the intake temp is above 20C, the coolant pump operates at 100% for maximum cooling efficiency.

MAXIMIZED POWER

IE ECU calibrations are dedicated to perfecting every section of the mapping to deliver a fully realized performance file right out of the gate. Maximized for full performance potential on the drag strip and road course while maintaining full comfort on your daily commute. Get ready to experience IE's Performance Software For your Audi CREC 3.0T Supercharged engine in only minutes from the comfort of your home garage or driveway.

NOTE: Tune compatibility is only for 3.0T CREC engines with 8 speed AL551 ZF8 transmission. Not compatible with Rest Of World (ROW) vehicles equipped with 7 speed DSG transmission.

WHAT IS CREC? CREC is the engine code for the updated 3.0T Supercharged engines found in 2016-2018 Audi A6 & A7 chassis. The CREC variation includes numerous changes from the previous generations of the 3.0T platform including a dual direct and port injection fuel system, supercharger refinements, a new ECU, and many other changes. The easiest way to verify if you have a CREC engine is to check the upper supercharger pulley; CREC is equipped with a 4 bolt supercharger pulley where as all previous gen engines have a press-on pulley. Still not sure? Don't worry, our IE POWERlink cable will identify the correct tune for you car automatically.

A big regret with this tune!

My big regret? WHY THE **** DIDN'T I DO THIS EARLIER LOL. This along with the TCU tune has made my A6 so much more fun to drive. The difference is well worth the price and the smile on my face. Also it really tickles me that when I accelerate, in my periphery, I see my wife grabbing onto the door handles for dear life 😂

I will take "INCREASED POWER AND BETTER THROTTLE RESPONSE FOR $900"

What is Integrated Engineering. Low end response is night and day better. Much smoother without as much jerkiness. Top end has a nice wow factor. Very happy with the upgrade.

Couldn’t be more satisfied.

Originally struggled to get my tune to install. After some help from the support team I have both the Stage 1 ecu and tcu on my 2017 A7. The difference really is night and day! Car is still a nice cruiser for everyday driving but when you want power it’s ready! Feels way less stifled I recommend this product if you’re in the fence about aftermarket modifications it’s a very nice introduction. Support responses were timely and helpful. If phone flashing doesn’t work try a laptop! Will be doing more with IE in the future.
