Default taller final drive ratio vs increased torque

Hi, due to the taller final drive ratio on my nx, even I have installed automate, but I am still thinking of a better solution to overcome the reduced torque. If I slightly tune the car and increase the torque 5-10%, would it solve the problem to help TCC lock up?

Do a remap and aim for around 15-20% max. You,ll love the difference and car will feel so much better. Motor and transmission are rock solid and the remap wont hurt them. Go to 17inch rims and lower profile tyres?

Actually, I am hoping for something bigger. If increased torque can help TCC lock due to taller final drive ratio I am seriously considering it. I have found many members have done it through either remap or chip. Since my paj is pretty new under warranty, I will do more research with how to. But for now I would like to hear more to confirm if it works, such as improved fuel economy, better overtake which may indicate the tcc lockup has been improved as well.

Let me know how you go about it, and how it turns out, I am thinking of doing the same (15-20%)
