The TCM is a separate module. There was an article somewhere about a tuner in EU that had something ridiculous like 300bhp and also offered TCM tuning with it. Everything was very expensive so I didn't pay too much attention. Basically it was in the ballpark of 3k-4k euros for tuning the engine, tranny, and a full turbo back exhaust straight through. Good results but way too much money. Stuff like that costs a lot in EU anyway. Sorry for the off topic.
My GDE is still running great. I installed it around 100 miles on the ODO and have 3200 now with 4 regen cycles not counting the first one upon install. That's pretty good!
I also just checked my oil for the first time and it is not black like I expected it to be. Nothing like the Devils blood that comes out of my highly tuned 1.9L tdi. I'm quite impressed with the condition (color) of the oil.
