Unicorn Software for all 7 speed DQ381 cars including MY19 300PS models is now available.
The changes are very similar to what happens with DQ250 although the internal method of operation is significantly different.
The software is priced at £449 inc vat or £349 if carried out with an engine software tune.
Removal of kickdown in manual
Removal of auto upshift in manual
Increased oil cooling at higher torque outputs
Increased minimum temperature before Launch Control will activate
Reduced launch delay when releasing brake pedal.
Reduction of delay to initiate gear change when paddle or lever is activated
Increased rate of torque build up under launch control
Optimised Launch Control RPM - dependant on engine tune and spec.
Increased Maximum possible RPM - dependant on engine tune and spec.
Increased adaptation sensitivity - this allows the gearbox to adapt to changes in driving style and wear more quickly.
Increased maximum torque rise during hard acceleration.
Reduced shift times in Manual and Sport modes when at high throttle positions.
Increased maximum allowed torque
Increased maximum clutch pressures. This is a complete recalibration of the clutch operation, depending on engine spec.
Optimised Shift points in D mode (recommended):
This increases the upshift point and down shift point at low throttle positions. The shift points have been carefully chosen to provide a more natural feel without the car wanting to race into 7th gear 1st gear is virtually unaffected, with the difference increasing with each successive gear. This results in a more eager response without the feeling of revving unnecessarily. There is no constant changing of gears at typical cruising speeds such as 30mph city driving.
Optimised Shift points in S mode (recommended):
This results in a much more use-able S mode. Under light throttle, the gearbox will shift up much earlier than as standard, but still higher than in D mode.
We can adjust the shift points to specific customer requirements, but the vast majority will use our standard optimised options.
