ah-hah, wish i thought to add that. Good looking out!dean said:To piggy-back on this question, let me ask if there would be a different effect on the DSG vs the 6-spd manual?
yeah, it's definitely more out of curiosity than anythingdean said:Sure, it's not like there's anything to do about it (if you want the power and torque, you're obviously going to get it), but I think the question is valid from a curiosity standpoint. You always hear about how add-ons affect engine wear and tear, but at least I haven't read up too much on transmissions to know what effect, if any, there is.
For what it's worth there are some companies on the other side of the pond that have DSG upgrades.rodknock said:This sounds a little like im being a prick but o well here goes, WHO CARES!
its not like there is any real upgrade for your trans to make it stronger. So there is no sense in worrying about it..
I dont know if its been posted what the engine is capable before (although I looked and couldn't find it this is the closest thing I saw) but if it hasnt here you all go.It all starts with VolkswagenÂ's 2.0-liter FSI turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant, an award-winner for its unique combination of direct injection and turbocharging. APR also replaced the turbocharger with a larger Garrett ball-bearing unit with twice the flow capacity and pumped up the boost to 21 pounds per square inch. All of the pressure-side plumbing was strengthened with silicon hose. A large-diameter cast-aluminum, black powder-coated intake pipe feeds the big turbo the cool air it needs from the larger, front-mounted intercooler, delivering twice the stock air flow. An Inconel exhaust manifold and an APR stainless steel exhaust system ensure efficient flow-through. ItÂ's a tidy, factory-like transformation, and the result is a whopping 375 horsepower, on 93 octane pump gas. If 100-octane race fuel is used, output rises to some 400 horsepower.
The Veyron has DSG too, I assume its the same one? ;Ddeviltailedfast said:The Audi TT has 250hp going into a DSG, and I assume it's the same one? Interestingly, though, the next stronger - S4, etc... - models do not - could be a market preference, or could be it doesn't work?
