You're swapping a TCM, which is a solid-state component. Mileage has no bearing on its life.

I guess you can say it’s personal preference. Joe mentioned it isn’t a problem, as he’s had customers who wanted to keep their TCM.

Do you still use Cayanne mapping after you get the pre-fix flash done? Is that pointless or does it then use Cayanne pre-fix settings?

I’m only getting the pre-fix Touareg TCM done. From what I read, prefix touareg tcm is very good, if not better than the cayenne? I’m also planning to get stage 2 tune done afterwards, as well.

When you get it done ask if using Cayanne mapping is different, too.


Depending on whether they are two separate base maps, he might only flash the pre-fix Touareg map to the TCM or he might flash both the Touareg and Cayanne pre-fix maps to the TCM. The system might just use a base map and apply its own tweaks based on whether you choose Touareg or Cayanne, which would mean only one map needs to be flashed to the TCM.


It might be that pre-fix Cayanne is sportier than pre-fix Touareg...or did people not bother changing to Cayanne before dieselgate?

I don’t believe he can tune the TCM? I think it’s becazis the Aisin trannys are hard to break into, and not much market for someone to crack? Something along those lines..

I haven’t heard back from Joe in a while. I’ll reach back out to him during the week. I’m possibly considering ecu pre-fix bs stage 2 JR tune. TCM is first and foremost, though..

Quick update, as got the TCM flashed by Yrktrg, and been driving it for the past couple weeks now. Like everyone that has gotten it done, I’m very happy with the way the car drives and responds, now! Thank you Joe, for being a stand up guy and pleasure to deal work with!

Cheers,

Ron

Ron, so you sent your current TCM to Joe? How long was the turn around and what was the fee? You can PM if you prefer. I'm following another post he's on and he said he's got the ECU flash on hold but curious if he's still doing TCM...any input would be helpful. I"m looking to buy a 2012 soon and want things to happen quick if they are available.
