tuffty 4 Posted October 11, 2022 Author Report Share Posted October 11, 2022 Have been driving around a bit getting used to the box... I am feeling less inclined to 'dip the clutch' and snatch the gear lever now... having the paddles makes the transition a lot easier as the muscle memory keeps kicking in using the selector in tiptronic... I have also now replaced the faulty Febi ball joints with the MEYLE ones and can confirm that the taper was different and the MEYLE ones just fit fine with no dramas... I managed to grab a ramp at Bill's to do this so I also topped up the DSG box fluid... took another ltr which I expected tbh... and my modded brake bleeder tool did the job perfectly.. I still have this random error pop up... Not really sure what is generating this... its not the IMMO (the pick up ring on the ignition barrel) as pretty sure that would flash the cluster light... I have a feeling its something to do with the key lock that I don't have fitted (controlled using a wire from the selector to the wheel module and then to solenoid that's fitted to the ignition barrel on 8P and up auto's)... so I might reinstate that wire or perhaps try and recode the wheel module... not sure if I set the gearbox back to manual if it will be happy to still provide an output for the paddles... have to see... One other thing I picked up to sort out at a later date is this.. Mainly for the sensor fitment on the top do I can hook it into IECU and log gearbox oil temps... its not 'definitive' as there are several sensors measuring temps in the box and I can actually see these in block 019 of the transmission module with the Color MFA but its always nice to log stuff in context Thought I would at least try a bit of boost and see where the limits were... the box wasn't at all happy .... so dropped back down to gate pressure (0.5bar/7psi) and will run like that until the box is mapped... Thats not to say that there is not anything to do in IECU as its a bit of a two way street... not only does the box need mapping but the ECU needs a bit of tweaking to be able to work with the TCU in "harmony"... The clutches are not slipping (or at least not that I have noticed) but torque limits are being hit all the same... This will limit the throttle plate to control 'load' and obviously means you are not getting full power potential... I have had a tweak about in the IECU map and improved the situation enough for now.... This will do until the box is sorted then I can fine tune things as needed... <tuffty/> Quote Link to post Share on other sites
