Hi, I'm thinking of the pendle engine and gearbox map on t6 cali ocean 204 dsg 4motion. You still happy with yours? Is your van a 204 dsg 4motion? There is a pendle agent in Cornwall called Collins of Probus that I was going to use.
Yes a 204 4MDSG.
Pendle gives impressive torque with acceleration up hills being instantly noticeable.
You need to be careful pulling away as getting to speed limits is rapid. Very rapid progress in country roads due to that rapid speed pickup out of bends etc.
My Brother was surprised how quickly it got to 70mph when pulling onto a Dual carriageway - he has an E Class Mercedes saloon. Overtaking is also a big benefit due to the short distance time needed to pass even an HGV doing 50mph.
Driven legally I had no noticeable fuel penalty, using the power all the time would change that.
I have the TVS DSG Program, + version as Agent said better suited to the Pendle tuned engine.
Not sure of the difference to standard Driveability version other than mention of better clutch cooling and faster gear changes.
It doesn't use 7th below 60mph and keeps engine revs above 1750rpm ie gone is the chugging in 7th at 40MPH.
It also now uses the gears as a speed limiter when in Cruise (no ACC fitted)
In summary I'd get the DSG reprogrammed either with the Driveability level or the + level (costs more) first then see if you want more power. Looks like Bristol Transmissions would be nearest Dealer for TVS.
I had Pendle first and found that the DSG didn't match the increased performance.
If your supplier Collins of Probus can do both at the same time then you'll be very surprised at the transformation on the drive back home. A bit like going in with a carthorse and coming out with an Eventer horse. You need to watch the speedo if you value a clean licence.
