    This is my first automatic car, and with a remap I'll be doing 300 horsepower quite easily. I'm wondering what sort of power the torque converter in the auto box can handle. What typical power are people getting from their 3.0 TDIs with a remap, and has anyone exploded anything expensive yet?

    500 to 550 seems to be the limit.

    The power (bhp) isn't so much the issue....it's the torque - iirc our boxes are rated to 500 lbs/ft
    the torque covnverter will be fine

    Personal I find the zf g/box poor and slow to respond in all modes really - the 6hp19 isn't great IMO - the 6hp26 I had in my 335d before wasn't great but it was infinitely better than the 6hp19

    Bugger...should have specified in my post that I was talking about torque and not power ;-/Have to add though that the 6hp28 in mine sounds no better than the previous generations.
