Sup Dude?
Normal torque converter backed planetary hydraulic automatics sap loads of power, the dual clutch on the other hand is a lot smaller delta due to mechanically acting very similarly to the manual while under load on the dyno test. A few percent difference is a lot less than the 10+% although for some reason the DCT seems to show less torque at the wheels which doesn't make much sense for what they say is supposed to be a direct mechanical connection between the engine and the wheels.

Not much just winging it

The dealer still didn't get the lamp in yet which is unfortunate. Now they claim it should be in tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.
