    Will my S-Tronic G-Box handle it?

    Thinking of a Re-map for my V6TDI to 290bhp.

    This will also take the TQ from 500NM to @640NM, the 7-speed S-Tronic is noted as being able to 600NM.

    So is a re-map such a good idea? will it destroy my box?

    Personally, I wouldn't because of the cost of the various components of the DSG box. Why not ask the remap company to take the torque to 570nm or so?

    Where are you thinking of getting it done ? As said above ask them to take the torque lower so the gearbox isnt being strained.

    550nm is recommended but I recon 600nm would be ok as long as you don't launch it frequently

    Starting to think it's not worth the hassle for 50NM's?

    It depends, you can extend the powerband, so it makes the increased torque for much longer, making it feel a lot free-er revving.

    I got this wrong, it's the Transverse one that handles 600NM, the one I have is 550NM as noted in the article above, so thanks for the info guy's. I think the wise thing to do is not take risks with such a complicated and expensive gearbox, shame though as nearly 300bhp would have been fun.

    What about this info seems they changed some figures from 2009 :-) gives you the magic 600nm

    Audi longitudinal DSG[edit]
    In late 2008, an all-new seven-speed longitudinal[7][13] S tronic[13] version of the DSG transaxle went into series production (Volkswagen Group internal code: DL501, parts code prefix: 0B5).[8] Initially, from early 2009, it is only used in certain Audi cars, and only with longitudinally mounted engines. Like the original six-speed DSG, it features a concentric dual wet multi-plate clutch.[13] However, this particular variant uses notably more plates — the larger outer clutch (for the odd-numbered gears) uses 10 plates, whereas the smaller inner clutch (driving even-numbered gears and reverse) uses 12 plates.[13] Another notable change over the original transverse DSGs is the lubrication system[14][15] — Audi now utilise two totally separate oil circuits.[13] One oil circuit, consisting of 7.5 litres (1.65 imp gal; 1.98 US gal), lubricates the hydraulic clutches and mechatronics with fully synthetic specialist automatic transmission fluid (ATF),[13] whilst the other oil circuit lubricates the gear trains and front and centre differentials with 4.3 litres (0.95 imp gal; 1.14 US gal) of conventional hypoid gear oil.[13] This dual circuit lubrication is aimed at increasing overall reliability, due to eliminating cross-contamination of debris and wear particles.[13] It has a torque handling limit of up to 600 N·m (440 lb·ft),[7] and engine power outputs of up to 330 kW (450 PS; 440 bhp).[7] It has a total mass, including all lubricants and the dual-mass flywheel of 141.5 kg (312 lb).[7]
