I have heard this a few times and don't know how it started. I have personally seen a DSG A3 hit 302lb-ft on the dyno. and with our exhaust it will do even better. The A3 we have here with our 3" full system on it turns a solid. 267hp/ 314lb-ft.

Also, if you go on HPA Motorsports all 3 SEMA R-GT entries are DSG transmissions with like up to 375lb-ft torque with a 3.2VR6 TT with 575HP! DSG rules.
Damn, that Jetta R-GT that I saw at the Chicago Auto Show, it sure was the second fastest car they had there (ater the Masseratti). So the DSG can handle a lot. I mean come on its made to handle a lot of power and speed.
