Polo gti 6c DSG performance

Post by Andy_6C » Sun Nov 11, 2018 1:32 am

Any information on the max power you can get from the 6c dsg? I’ve heard people running stage 2 but not stage 3? Guessing with the gearbox problems 🤔

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.

You can get an uprated clutch pack for that allows for 470nm of torque iirc

Then you may still get problems with the mechatronics unit.

Thank you, I’ll keep looking into it and speak to a few tuning companies
