Racechip compatible for 2019 Golf GTD?

My 2019 GTD 2.0L with DSG transmussion has the engine code DJGA.
I know the other GTD 2.0 L are engine code CUNA or DGCA.

Does anyone know if I can use the same tune on the DJGA motor (with DSG)?
Racechip website is unclear - it says CUNA or DGCA.

Maybe the engine code is different because it was built in 2019? I want to put racechip GTS but I don't know if it's possible.

Mine is DGCA. DJGA was used in Octavia RS and in Seat Leon FR as well. But I would reach the seller to confirm compatibility with your car.

However, I'd rather visit a local, well known tuner with a proper tools for adjustment of your car's engine control unit, for measurement of the engine power, various parameters etc. I believe there are few in Stuttgart. :)

It worked, and there is some more power now.

BUT - having an issue - on mode 6 and even 5 (out of 7), twice I got an error:
ACC no longer active
then EPC on the dash
then GREATLY reduced power! I got it back when I reset the car only.

How can I avoid this in the future and still use the power?

Throwing out chip box and do proper chip tune in some good and trustful tuning shop (TCU tune too, to remove sluggish "euro 6d" DSG reaction and shiftpoints)
Ok understood. TCU is sluggish, but I was told that I can go to Volkswagen and have them update the programming.

Is the racechip really so bad?

Well, maybe shift time will be faster, but shiftpoints gonna be on very low RPM's, "because euro 6d"

OE shiftpoins are just bad for engine (carbon build-up, shortening DMF and engine lifespan)

Chip boxes is just a "cheater". In TDI's, you normally connect it to fuel pressure sensor + MAP, and sends lower values than real to ECU, so ECU try to reach to designated value, giving a little bit more boost and fuel . So you change 2 parameters only (within stock mapping for timing, limiters,etc.) . To give you perspective, when ECU modding, around 20-30 maps (old CR TDI's), to 200-300+ maps (MG1/MD1 ECU's) are edited

Good thing that theoreticly, even bad chipbox should not destroy engine,fuel system etc. , because of OE limiters, but on newer ECU's, with more strict mapping and smaller "error margin" (margin to "cheat"), in case of chip tuning, if done bad, it can destroy engine, or some components (fuel system, DPF, SCR, and all the "exhaust gas aftertreatment")

But chip done correctly, is just much better than chipbox
