Frieling Racing is one of the only companies that can provide Volkswagen DSG or Audi S-Tronic tuning via the OBDII port for all vehicles 2006-2016. This covers the DQ200 7 speed DSG cars that were launched in 2008 and paired to engines with up to 250 N·m (180 lb·ft). Also included is the DQ250 C E F and M Q B 6speed DSG vehicles that have been paired to engines with up to 350 N·m (260 lb·ft) of torque. The only gearbox that can be read via the OBDII port is the DQ250 Cxx version. The Audi longitudinal engines that began in 2008 feature the 7 speed S-Tronic variant that can handle 600 N·m (440 lb·ft) know as the DL501. Finally, in September 2010, VW launched a new seven-speed DSG built to support up to 600 N·m (440 lb·ft), the DQ500.
The DSG transmission cannot actually be read out from the OBDII port with any device. This is built in protocol protection. Some devices have a factory map stored on a handheld, but this is not always the optimal way to go. With our OBDII solution, you are able to ID the firmware of your vehicle with the iFlash software. Once you have the ID, you can match it up with a FRF file and convert it to usable binary code. All DSG modules can be written via the OBDII port. What some repair facilities or DSG tuners will do is read the file directly from the module, this however requires a special harness similar to what is sold at ChipTuningTools.
To be able to ID and write DSG or S-Tronic transmission, you need to have a Master to decrypt and encrypt files, end user cables which lock 1 per VIN, or pay for the corresponding protocols to exclusively use your Master. An End User cable can also be used to flash a ECU when you pay for an additional license of $100.
