I really hate my miserable non tip automatic. I want to add tiptronic to it to make it less hateful. I have read the DIY, but the guy who wrote it hasn't been active for 2years. So I want to ask if anyone here could support me and teach me when I run into problems while doing the convertion.[up]

First of all, the writer of the DIY use a tiptronic transmision controll unit, part# 8D0 427 156 BN which is a 99.5 1.8TQ. I found one on ebay which is 8D0 927 156 BN, also from a 99.5 A4 Quattro. What is the difference between these two?


Also, can I use VAGCOM to change my automatic TCU to a tiptronic TCU?

Is it possible to code the automatic TCU to become a tiptronic TCU?

I am not sure, but I did read that DIY a long time ago. I suggest reading on ross-tech. I am sure you could rig something up to make it work.

I think the tip TCU is different than the auto TCU after deeply reanalyze the DIY. BTW, thanks to your sig, I was thinking I saw a tip shifter mod long time ago and now you start a group buy on it[up]
