End-user Flashing Tool and Cable.
Welcome to PDM from RacingLine.
The Power Delivery Module allows you to access the full RacingLine Performance Software calibration suite for your car. Quickly and safely reflash your Engine Control Unit (ECU) and DSG Transmission Control Unit (TCU) from the convenience of your own home.
What is PDM?
RacingLine’s renowned Performance Software is powering thousands of cars all over the globe.
Power Delivery Module is our latest user option to further enhance your Performance Software experience. PDM is our end-user tool to allow you install the RacingLine calibrations yourself. By purchasing the PDM Tool, you’ll get access to exactly the same full Software Suite as your RacingLine Performance Dealer does.
But the difference is that the PDM tool allows you to install, remove, upgrade or change your calibration yourself, any time, any where.
Of course the PDM tool is not required to enjoy our Performance Software, and won’t be everyone’s choice. Our expert network of trusted Software Specialists remains on-hand to supply and install your calibration for you if you prefer.
Why choose PDM?
Instead of going to your local dealer, PDM gives you the option to take full control of your RacingLine Software.
Install your software, upgrade to the next stage of tuning, vary between fuel octanes and even flash the car back to stock. All from the comfort of your own garage or driveway, at any time.
And, best of all, as all RacingLine Performance Software comes with our Free Upgrades programme, there’s zero cost to switch between any of the calibrations available for your vehicle.
How does PDM work?
RacingLine’s PCM flashing process couldn’t be easier. The beautiful billet PCM Tool plugs securely into the car’s OBD-2 port, using your Windows laptop or tablet to access the full suite of RacingLine Performance Software available for your vehicle.
The system automatically reads your VIN number and ECU type for instant identification. Select which RacingLine Performance Software calibrations is right for your car’s hardware and fuel grade used. Then quickly and easily re-flash your ECU and/or TCU.
How to purchase PDM.
To access this flexible world of home flashing, you’ll need to purchase the PDM Flashing Tool and Cable from a RacingLine Authorised Dealer. Now you have the tool, you will then need to buy the Performance Software itself, in the form of a Digital Access Key for your car. Choose ECU, TCU or a bundle deal for both.
Once authorised, the intuitive PDM Install Software will automatically detect your vehicle’s ECU and VIN number, and present you with the list of compatible engine ECU and transmission tunes available. Choose your tune, and in a matter of minutes the system will guide you through the process to transform your vehicle’s performance. It couldn’t be simpler.
PDM isn’t available for all ECU types right now.
We have our three most popular engine types available to work with PDM:
- 2.0 TSI EA888 gen.4
- 2.0 TSI EA888 gen.3
- 2.5 TFSI EA855 EVO
Return to Stock.
The PDM system stores your stock factory ECU calibration on the RacingLine Server. Meaning you can return your vehicle back to factory ECU programming at any time, quickly and easily.
Upgraded your car’s hardware? Once all the minimum hardware requirements are met, as RacingLine Performance Software comes with our Free Upgrades program, there will be no further charges to upgrade to the next levels of available calibrations ever again.
Headed to the dragstrip? Or taking a long trip to an area where you can’t guarantee fuel quality? Simply plug in your PDM to switch to a different fuel octane file for your stage of tuning. Most RacingLine Performance Software calibrations include options of 95, 98 or 102 RON.
RacingLine’s own intuitive PDM Install Software is included with your PDM purchase and will run on your Windows 10 laptop or tablet. This Install Software allows the PDM Tool to communicate with your vehicle’s ECU to flash software tunes, upgrade, return to stock and update.
