Hard to say till I get one back on the dyno , I think the DCT will show the same HP and TQ

Hey Tom.
I think he's asking if you plan to intentionally tune a DCT with lower power to go easy on the transmission. I would assume the answer is no.

No , I am going to push the DCT to see where its limit is , Have already started doing this
I think the Trans it self will hold a lot , over 300 TQ , I think the clutch will slip long before the trans is an issue

Tom can we expect the same numbers on a DCT car? Or will it be a little more tamed to save the tranny? Really interested in either one of your kits, just waiting for 60K miles. I'd rather not void my warranty lol.
The DCT is typically about 4-5 whp less then 5 speed on dynos, do not install a turbo kit if you are worried about any powertrain warranty.

One could always run less boost, I don't think the full kit will make enough torque to be an issue. Also, I remember Mike from RDC was looking into getting grippier upgraded clutches for the DCT made...that might be useful.

I've been looking all over the place whether this was even a possibility. Does he have a thread for updates on this?

I have tested the Injectors and the HPFP and both came out very close to what the ST pump was doing , only thing I havent tested is the in tank pump

Tom
The in tank pump loses volume at high RPM, ST in tank pump is a direct replacement.

We are planning to deliver a DCT to the company for HD packs by next month

I think so as well , I had the Injectors tested , The HPFP Tested and they were with in just a few % of the ST , Figured it was the in tank pump and going to have one tested at 40psi and do the same with a ST to see what they both flow at
I hit 255 hp and the more I push it the sooner in RPM the fuel falls off so sure its in tank pump , Wish SCT would log the fuel psi , I am sure your finding many things you wish SCT did LOL

You got that right, sooooo outdated. But making progress. The ST pump is also a bit cheaper than the OE NA pump
