The DL501 and DL382 gearbox has two wet clutches, one for the odd gears and one for the even gears. This allows for rapid and smooth gear changes, as the next gear can be pre-selected while the current gear is still engaged. The DL382 gearbox also has a number of other features that contribute to its performance, such as a shift-by-wire system and a mechatronic control unit.
DL382 and DL501 transmissions are indeed newer models, “transmission tuning” or “remapping” for these transmissions would involve adjusting the parameters within the transmission control unit (TCU) to optimize performance, similar to the explanations we provided for previous transmission models.
The DL382 gearbox is a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) developed by Audi AG. It was introduced in 2015 and is used in a variety of Audi and Volkswagen vehicles, including the A4, A5, A6, Q5, and Q7.
The maximum torque capacity of the DL382 gearbox is 400 Nm. This means that it is suitable for engines with a maximum torque of up to 400 Nm. The DL382 gearbox is also available in a high-torque variant (DL382+) that has a maximum torque capacity of 500 Nm.
The DL382 gearbox is a reliable and efficient transmission that offers a good driving experience. It is also relatively easy to maintain, although it is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended service intervals.
The DL501 gearbox is a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) developed by Audi AG. It was introduced in 2009 and is used in a variety of Audi and Volkswagen vehicles, including the A5, Q5, A6, S4, and RS5.
The maximum torque capacity of the DL501 gearbox is 550 Nm. This means that it is suitable for engines with a maximum torque of up to 550 Nm.
