It sound like the clutches are either slipping or the TCM is not releasing quickly enough.

I am having the same issue with my DCT. I am sure there is no contaminants on the clutches and the clutch spring clamping force has not been exceeded. I feel it entirely software related.

I am working with Tom to improve the gear changing speeds. I want the TCM to change gear as soon as I press the select shift buttons and release the clutches quickly under WOT. During calm driving the TCM can slow changes, I don't mind.

I don't know yet if this is possible. I suspect I am expecting too much out of the syatem and a tune.

Even with these limitations, an original focus 2.0 could not keep pace.
You dont have a Tune on your Focus , with boost you have to add a LOT of Fuel

Let's wait! This can be the impression! The car is not being fed properly! is always working so thin because of the delay! I look forward to tuning! We need this!

Tom,

Do you mind telling us what the HP/TQ numbers are on the DCT's with the full turbo kit that are at 11psi?

Thanks.

Hello!! I'm doing the tuning with Tom, when I finish I'll pass the car on the dynamometer and post here video and photo. Tom is waiting for the SCT to make a change to the base file in order to change it. I'll pass the car before tuning in order to make a more accurate comparison. And let's see how many psi the transmission can withstand. The car is 9psi and I want to get out with 11psi after tuning.

You have got to get a tune in there , your lucky your engine is still running

Tom
Agreed. You must be running lean with some detonation and high cylinder temps.

Take it easy out of boost until you get a tune.

I'm having a lot of luck! because it has been more than a year that I have the turbo kit customized without problems and with 9 psi! of course not having 100% of the performance generated by the turbo but already a huge difference of focus 2.0 dct stock. In the dynamometer I passed gave 169whp and 22kg of torque on the wheel.
