Marc and some other people remember, that I'm interested too in chiptuning my PLUS.
But, that the gear-box is built only for 400 Nm that's a really new insight for me. (...and it occures me
Are you really sure, that this is true?
On the one side I wondered already, why the PLUS have the same torque, as the normal S6 V8 have. Normally if an engine has more power, it has also more torque...
But on the other side I can't understand, why the gear-box of the V8-engines is not built to stand more torque, than that one for the 5 cylinder-engines. And what about the S8's ? Do they have another gearbox for those 340 HP / 410 Nm -engines (and their havier cars)?
I'm one of those drivers who care a lot about their PLUS, and I'd like to drive it at least for the next 5 years....
But why not to optimize a bit the compromise, which always must be done in a engine software? Do you really believe, the risk of a broken gear-box is that big?
Have you heard a lot about broken ones?
