Stage One will eliminate auto upshifts in Manual Mode and will raise shift points in Sport Mode. This allows you to reach the rev limiter defined in your tune so you can take advantage of your entire powerband. This has shown to be especially useful for 3.8 cars (peak power usually lands between 6600-7000) and big turbo 2.0 cars (peak power usually lands at 7200+ depending on turbo size). This is a very inexpensive way to grab some power left on the table over the stock TCU programming
Stage Two will give you the same features as Stage One as well as increased shift firmness and speed. This will result in faster times at your favorite track or preferred proving grounds
An ECU tune will be required to fully take advantage of the powerband information listed above. Stock ECU programming generally limits Genesis Coupes to ~6800rpms, while stock TCU programing initiates a gear change between 5700-6400rpms depending on gear and load. If you alredy have an Alphaspeed tune and aren't sure if your rev limiter was raised, just let us (or any Alphaspeed dealer) know and we'll check
Genesis Coupe BK2 8speed Auto TCU Tune
Unlike competitor TCU tunes that use the exact same file from an unknown source, Alphaspeed TCU tunes are based on in-house testing over a 6 month time period on my personal vehicles. I've never released a tune or a feature that hasn't been thoroughly tested from daily driving and/or track abuse on my own cars
Our TCU tune is the most affordable way to utilize the full potential of your Automatic Transmission BK2 Genesis Coupe. Stock TCU programming restricts your vehicle by imposing shift points well below peak power, as low as 5700rpms at wide open throttle in lower gears. Along with giving you more rpm headroom, our TCU tune also gives you the flexibility to initiate a gear change at or near the rev limiter imposed by your ECU tune (purchased separately). In manual mode gear changes must be initiated by the user; the TCU will not reach the next gear without user intervention. Sport Mode gear changes are dynamic and will range from 6400rpms (first gear) to ~7200rpms.
Daily driving will remain as docile and reliable as the stock programming, but when you need the extra edge it'll be on tap
Some TCU calibrations have been identified with a (currently unfixable) bug that causes a shift flare from 2nd to 3rd gear and 4th to 5th gear. It subsides on its own after the TCU learns shifting habits, which usually takes 4-5 full driving cycles
