Alientech news update: Upgrade 1.19

Bosch TCU ZF6HP, Kefico TC60 and TC80, Temic MPS6: works in BENCH mode on the new control units supported by KESS3

Improve your performance and repair automatic transmissions that equip the BMW, Audi, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford and Volvo brands without risk of damage to the TCUs thanks to the KESS3’s reliability and ease of connection.

Thanks to these four new protocols, you will be able to read and write the ZFHP6, six-speed automatic gearboxes that equip high-performance D-segment cars such as the BMW 335i (E90, E91, E92, E93), extending the possibility of unlocking incredible performance by working on the ECU and TCU with a single tool!

Tuning TCU operating parameters is faster than ever: use the special feature to search for a gearbox or communication protocol on the KESS3 – Alientech Suite management software, read and write without opening the control unit, and satisfy your customers with a complete and reliable service in a very short time.

Temic MPS6 control units are also available at K-TAG.


Performance enhancement through reprogramming of the automatic transmission control unit is a constantly growing service.

Tuning the management parameters of a gearbox means improving performance and driving pleasure, with a keen eye on fuel consumption. In some cases, it is essential to adjust the calibration of the TCU’s in order to complete the process and ensure that the engine and gearbox can work in perfect harmony, maximizing the vehicle performances.

Alientech has always played a leading role in this sector by offering concrete and powerful solutions for professionals.


Not just tuning! Working on automatic transmission control units is a business opportunity largely dedicated to repair.

More expensive electronic components, such as the TCU, which manages the operation of mechanical parts, can be saved.

Therefore, through recalibration you can spare your customer large sums of money, to the benefit of your business! KESS3 and ECM Titanium are the fastest and most reliable tools for your work.

Temic MPS6

Getrag gearboxes equipped with Temic MPS6 electronics are six-speed dry double-clutch transmissions installed in many small and medium-sized transverse-engined vehicles branded Chrysler, Dodge, Ford and Volvo.

In this configuration, for both front- and all-wheel drive cars, it reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 per cent compared to a conventional torque converter automatic transmission.

The choice of installing such a gearbox, which is light and compact and extremely versatile (it can be installed on diesel, petrol and hybrid engines), has meant an overall reduction in mass with a maximum torque management of less than 280nm.

Working on this transmission is therefore a surgical tuning job to increase speed and fluidity of shifting, taking particular care to increase the maximum torque limit values.

Bosch ZF6HP

ZF’s first 6-speed torque converter is a technological breakthrough in the world of automatic transmissions. Lighter and more compact thanks to the reduced number of components inside, it is designed to withstand (in some versions) high power and torque. This is the reason why manufacturers have used it on some sports cars, even as an alternative to the manual gearbox.

Bosch’s electronics matched with new protocols for this gearbox equip, as we have already seen, the BMW brand with the top 3 Series (E9x), but also Audi A4 B7 and B8 with Quattro all-wheel drive system.

Tuning of the maximum available torque, shift time and shift speeds parameters on this TCU will further enhance performance by optimizing shift times and much more fluidity.

Kefico TC60 e TC80

The Kefico TC60 and TC80 control units manage the operation of Hyundai transmissions installed in Hyundai Genesis and Kia Ceed, Soul, Sportage, Sorento, respectively.

These 6- and 8-speed torque converter transmissions are installed in a wide range of medium-sized vehicles with transverse and longitudinal front engines. The gearboxes equipped on front-wheel drive cars (6-speed) achieve a record of their type thanks to the development based on variable pressure control, which reduces weight and size while maintaining excellent performance.

The design of this automatic transmission therefore allows good acceleration and reduced fuel consumption. Tuning the TCU calibration of these transmissions ensures an increase in overall performance for quick shifting and driving comfort.
