IE POWERlink DIRECT PORT FLASH TOOL
IE's POWERlink direct port flash tool is required to flash your ECU (engine control unit) or TCU (transmission control unit) and is available separately. The POWERlink tool is sold with all new IE ECU tunes and can also be used to flash your new DSG tune. If you already own an IE POWERlink unit, purchasing this file will add the credits to your cable within one working day. If you do not own a POWERlink cable, please chose to add one in the drop-down menu above.
The PowerLink cable allows for map switching without making a trip back to an IE Software dealer. This allows you to test different TCU maps and features such as launch points.
Simply plug your IE PowerLink cable into your vehicle’s OBD-II port and the USB port on your Windows-powered laptop to use the included IE Flash Wizard software. The flash wizard will then walk you through the installation steps.
FLASH MULTIPLE CARS
Have a friend with a compatible VW or Audi? Share the power with up to 5 different cars with a single cable. Just add enough credits to your cable for the desired tune and power-up your entire crew.
RETURN TO STOCK ANYTIME
With the IE PowerLink, you can return your vehicle back to original ECU or TCU programming at any time.
IE will always provide free software updates as they become available and easily reflashed through your IE PowerLink cable.

IE DSG TUNE TECHNICAL FEATURES
HIGHER SHIFT POINTS
High shift points result in faster acceleration and power gains by increasing the usable powerband.
DRIVE MAPPING REWORKED
The B8 and B8.5 S5 is designed to a fault to keep engine rpm extremely low in drive. We completely reworked this, creating a more enthusiast-friendly drive mapping which shifts a bit higher. This eliminates vibration and that constant feeling that you’re lugging the engine. We’ve reworked the downshifting aspect as well, making the transmission much quicker to deliver power when you need it. Thousands of miles of testing were accumulated and a variety of users were polled to come up with this improved drive mode.
INCREASED CLUTCH PRESSURE
Increasing the clutch pressure allows for the transmission to hold more torque without causing clutch damage or expedited wear. With the increased torque, the acceleration will be greatly increased and launches will far more aggressive.
FLASHED THROUGH OBD-II PORT
There’s no need to remove the TCU from the car and it can be flashed in your driveway or through an IE software dealer. Additionally, having an IE PowerLink cables means you can install updates are they become available as well as read TCU and ECU fault codes.
From the factory, the S5 only allows 200 launches before the feature becomes unavailable. With the IE DSG Tune, the fun police have been sidelined and you can now launch your car as many times as you like.
FLAWLESS OPERATION WITH IE ECU TUNES
The IE DSG Tune and ECU Tune were developed side by side on our in-house dynamometer. By running both tunes you will unlock the full potential of your 3.0T engine and transmission. Perfect for all IE Tunes from Stage 1 to dual pulley and throttle upgrades.
