    S Line on its way ....Max safe torque for DSG

    I've finally took plunge on a '54' S-Line DSG in from Local Stealer. Managed to get them down from Ł14k to Ł13,300. Full Audi SH
    wheel refurb. new tyres new mats. Year warranty and breakdown cover included.

    Does anyone have an idea what is the safe limit for DSG clutches?

    E.G the Std dry clutch is rated to 410NM

    I'm trying to get an idea of how much re-map is possible without risking failure and upgraded gearbox gubbins and ruining the warranty of course

    Not really sure but I have seen a figure of 350Nm quoted in one article.

    I should be careful though because, as the DSG is a Ł1400 option on a new car, I'm sure you would be talking at least Ł3-4k for a replacement, possibly even more!!

    Does anyone have any idea of the cost of a replacement DSG?

    I seem to recall reading elsewhere that the DSG box was in the region of £4K. Without fitting charges!

    With no modifications to the clutches? They must be brave!

    I have just been looking around on my computer and found a copy of the original article of July 2003 as a pdf file. It says the DSG is designed for a maximum torque of 350Nm.

    Here is a link to a copy of the article...DSG article

    interesting !!

    i have approx 400NM in my current A3 and it's a handful in the wet
    i have complete control i imagine DSG being even more of an animal

    the first one i drove was a Passat hire car and it was super sensitive to throttle position.
