S3 Pollution Plus+ Edition
S3 S-tronic Gearboxes 6 speed - Wheres the Limit for the clutch pack?
I'm getting a mega itch for this DSG map + i.e more torque, which is the killer...
My 2012 Stage 2 S-tronic S3 is currently outputting 295 f/lbs which I believe is approx - 400nm (337bhp)
Basically, we all know the Manual version for the S3 is basically sat right on its limit out of the box and the
S-tronic box is stronger, but by how much?
Ideally i would like to remap the S-tronic box, but to the point way before the limit, i'd kinda like it to last a little
I have a feeling that once its mapped and the automatic torque limiter is basically removed, it'll behave just
like the manual version, and slip before long?
Where do they start to substantially wear out/slip? Bearing in mind I drive with a VERY heavy foot when i drive it
Has anyone witnessed or heard of these S-tronic clutch packs slip at all? with or without added maps etc
Im yet to hear of one? Find it hard to believe actually?
(Mechatronics failures I've heard of, but this isn't relevant in this case)
