DSG clutches can take a beating and don't need to be replaced even past 400 ft/lb of torque. I have the GIAC Stage 2 DSG tune that got loaded same time as the K04 tune at AWE headquarters after I installed the turbo, but ran Stage 1 and 2 GIAC tunes with no troubles at all on stock transmission software. AWE recommends (or at least used to) getting a DSG tune with K04 so the ECU doesn't hold back any torque. The tune changed the Sport mode shift points but left the regular Drive mode pretty much the same. It also changed the rpm used for Launch mode and eliminated forced downshifts.

Ic that's what i thought. Just wanted to verify because I've seen some good numbers on stock DSG
