2021 VW GTI/GLI – DSG Tuning Support

A few months ago COBB Tuning released official ECU tuning support via the V3 Accessport for the 2021 VW GTI and GLI. Now we are proud to announce that the option to also tune the 7-speed DSG transmission via the Accessport is available as well! The 2.0 TSI engines respond incredibly well to tuning but making more power from the engine isn’t the only way to increase performance. Some of that added power is wasted if you don’t also improve the responsiveness and strength of the transmission that transfers that power to the wheels.


Purchase Options and Features

$1095

How to purchase

For new customers, the Accessport can be purchased with the ability to tune the engine ECU and DSG Transmission together (click the left image above). For those that already have an Accessport for the ECU only, a DSG update option is available as well (click the right image above).

We also offer various stage packages that include the option for ECU and DSG Tuning along with prescribed hard parts to perfectly match our ECU and DSG calibrations all right out of the box.

Off-The-Shelf Maps and Datalogging

Improved clutch clamping force and reduced shift times are applied to Drive, Sport and Manual modes within each map. Meaning that the factory Sport and Manual modes feel even sharper and more dynamic when pushing the car to its limits. Yet, the COBB OTS DSG calibrations make their biggest impact is where you spend 90% of your time driving…on the street in the Drive mode. Read below to see how each available map offers significant and progressive adjustments to the transmission’s behavior. The Off The Shelf DSG Maps for the 7-speed transmission come in 4 different flavors along with several nice features to top it off. The map options perfectly balance the hyper-aggressive Sport settings and wake up the normally sluggish factory Drive mode while also enhancing the manual paddle shifting experience to give you the most direct and responsive amount of control regardless of your driving style and needs.
