    ....anyone seen Groundhog Day?:)

    But seriously Patrick, the reason for the tumbleweed is because this is a well covered topic - use the search facility bud and all your questions will be answered:yes:

    As S3SportGuy has said...you should really use the search facility first,then ask if you can't find anything useful.

    DSG box is fine and well made,but there are doubts about it's ability to cope with much over 330lbs of torque,although there are some (US) based DSG remaps which will permit more,but even those have a disclaimer regarding the likely reliability of what they offer.
