I quit reading about all the threads people post about their complaints. It seems as if people only post when there is something wrong with their cars, which makes people scared of something they shouldn't be. You rarely see a thread about somebody praising how their DSG and how it well it works with a stage 1 tune... but always when there is a problem... my $.02

ok thats good to hear. the thing that fu*ked me up was, that the dsg transmission is only rated for 258 lbs TQ(vw standers) and stage 1 is 305. if there was a problem apr wouldn't of produced it. ok had a little scare but back on track now haha made the appointment for wednesday the 11 to get stage 1 last week, wont be doing any canceling
Stage 1 you will not get 305 number with DSG. Its limited to 258 by VW. REVO has DSG flash, I am not sure if allows you 305 or more. Many people run Dyno after, results shows max 258. I have TDI with stage 1, It feels like more than 258 (236 factory with tdi).
DGS (6 spd. wet clutch) can handle more than 400+hp (check R section, one guy (TEFF) has r with dsg (same as GTI) and running 618 tq.
Not the same trany but remember Bugatti Veyron has DSG as well...
However I find it hard to believe that the DSG limits to 258. That makes no sense at all.
Have VCDS, will travel.
according to WIKI:
the DSG on the GTI is paired with car that have up to 260 lb-tq, that does not mean it is a limit...
