Gearbox tuning for VW/Audi (ZF xHP) - who is interested?

Hi all,

This thread is being started to see if we have enough demand to convince xHP developers to develop a solution for VW/Audi range vehicles with a ZF 6hp gearbox.

They have done good job on BMWs and results look decent. https://www.xhpflashtool.com/en/
Who would be interested in a gearbox tune for their VW/Audi?

If xHP developers are reading this, Im willing to work with you and use my car as a base [email protected]

Please help to share this

Thanks
Bobby

Am I right in thinking this is Tiptronic 6 speed slush boxes? If so, sign me up.

Beep beep.

I think the ZF Tip box is pretty decent, just would be good with a few tweaks - response and TC lock up.

But I think remapping the TCU would be quite preferential - eg, some people like a gearchange 'kick', some don't, like some rave about the box in the M3 CSL (e46), some think it's too harsh

I would be interested though.

Can't see why the map from the BMW couldn't be used as a basis on ours as it is the same box, minus the 'AF' which is the 4WD part. Not sure if AF stands for All Four!?

I did nearly buy a 535d, this is the ZF 6HP box, but I do remember, if in D it would set off in 2nd not 1st. S would drop into 1st. Just wondering if it's because it has more lower down grunt with the bi-turbo setup!?

You may want to change the thread title. Unless anyone’s had a BMW they may not know what XHP is but would still be interested.

Good point - I did try but I can't edit the main title shown on the index page.

Cheers

I'm sure Bobby will keep his hands on his flashing tool and not on your box

I emailed them too out of curiosity, asked as it's the 'same' box whether it could be tweaked to 'talk' to the Audi version of the TCU software, but was told, no it doesn't work on Audis. I'm sure if we could get into TCU map, you could do the same tweaks?

You have tweaked you TCU haven't you? Are you trying to get it through an app like the XHP? I guess it's all programming etc to get the same thing as xHP for our tip-tronics!?

Sure I can read and write the controller, but the software is not easy to understand.
I've tried a few things with mine but i wouldn't say I've a tuned to a level whereby its worthy of a sale.
