Re: (gti415)

This is good news. So, without upgrading the torque converter, how much whp does everybody think the tiptronic tranny can handle on average, without problems?

I believe it is officially rated at a max of around 250 lb/ft of "sustained torque" but translating a vague statement like that into real world is a diff story. A few have taken in north of 250hp and TQ without any noted issues other than some occasional gear hunting. The real question is how long would it take it without long term effects.
