      I recently bought a 2010 golf with the 2.5L and the automatic with the shift over manual. I want to boost the power on the engine, but i am unsure of how much power the tranny can take. Can anyone tell me how much I can put in? Also, what mods are the best to add power?

      The auto tranny on the 2.5L is just that - a planetary automatic. You don't have a DSG, check the forum for normal Automatic transmissions.
