Post fixed TCM and driving in sport mode

Hello,

Got my 2014 TDI R line I’ve always wanted. I was lucky enough to find one with 19,000 km. I had to do quite a bit researching before getting the Touareg and is the 2nd TDI, first automatic tranny I’ve had.

I’ve never driven a pre-fix treg, but when I step on it (while in D mode) there’s so much delay! I tried the S mode, and is def a lot better. I’m strongly thinking of getting yrktrg TCM fix. I’m just hesitant, as I’d hate to swap out my parts, because it’s so low mileage. Queation, is there a substantial difference from the pre-fix D mode vs the post-fix in sport mode? Would getting cayenne coding be pretty close to the pre-fix treg TCM? And, wouldn’t a post fixed cayenne coding be similar as the post fix tcm?

I don’t know if I can really enjoy driving the car like this. My manual MK6 TDI Golf didn’t change much at all, after getting the emission recall work completed. I love my treg, but it really feels like I’m driving a cvt transmission, and massive turbo lag. Is it bad idea to just keep driving the car in “S” mode, in terms of fuel consumption and longevity?

Thanks,

Ron

Get the pre-fix tcm from yrktreg. It’s a huge difference.

Thanks for the feedback. Was trying to explore options around town, but better to just get it done right..

You're "swapping out" the programming on your low milage ECM.
You're not swapping ECMs or any parts.... whatever you send to him, he will bench flash and send it back to you.

You don't "exchange" your low milage ECM for a 300k ECM he has kicking around..... (unless you use his loaner in the meantime)

Yeah, I asked about that, and preferred to discuss over phone, had some questions. I prefer to get loaner, and receive my original back. I haven’t heard back in awhile, want to get ecu done as well, and possibly going to make a trip out there in May. I’ll bug Joe in a bit, as I’m sure he’s prob swamped with work..

I have 2014 R Line and wondering if I can use either 7750 AK, as I’m guessing my current is 7750 CF?

Answer is Yes, but it's easier to just send your TCU in and get it flashed. Car will be down a few days, unless you're in Canada. Or just drive down and when you're in USA, have him flash it for you.

I wouldn't even bother using "S" mode if driving in "D" mode already bothers you with shifting at such high rpms.

Yeah I’m either just gonna be without a car for a few days, or try and pick up a cheap spare one. Maybe I get lucky and find a wrecked unfixed treg.

Lol I wouldn’t care if the car had 60k+ km but is nice, and makes sense, to try and keep the existing parts on the car. That, or I still got the new car bug in me! Haha!

And yeah, I stopped looking for another TCM and just going to send mine over to Joe.

Cheers,
