I don't think the limitation is power but instead its torque. Revo suggest 224lbft is the safe limit for the DSG 7 gearbox but I its not clear how they arrived at that figure as being safe. My concern would be longevity. I wouldn't be surprised if the DSG would initially operate at this level or more as I'm sure VW allowed some margin of error when they limited the gearbox to 185lbft in stock form, but how big unknown is the size of this margin and how long it would continue to handle this.
