It's well documented on forums and tuner's websites that the 6-speed transverse mounted s-tronic 'box has a software limit of 350Nm of torque ( ie 260lb/ft ).
Can anyone provide an official link that verifies this, ie from Audi or VW or the manufacturer ?
The reason I ask is that I'm getting a new S3 shortly and was speaking to my local ( well respected on here and other VAG forums ) tuner. I was enquiring about an ecu upgrade, and then asked about an s-tronic upgrade which I thought would be needed as well as the torque level would go up to approx 300 lb/ft. He said the s-tronic upgrade was not required as there wasn't any torque limit on it, only reason for the s-tronic upgrade was if you wanted any of the other features it offers.
I've spent the afternoon Googling but couldn't find anything that wasn't a forum or car mag or tuner website.
Not going to name any names at the moment, would like to be able to send him any links and ask for comments ?
