So why would people think that the DCT wouldnt eventualy have issues..its all a question of time..

An MT at least there's the option for uprated clutch.. issue solved..
You can upgrade the multi wet clutches in the DCT too. The upgrades are rated at 700whp. The multi wet clutches are just as easy to replace as the MT

Good to know then my argument is moot...but to say that stock components can "take it" without consquence doesnt seem realistic. Problems may not manifest themselves right away but they will manifest themselves

OP... Bottom line is that you will not have an issue with DCT with the kit that you are wanting to install. Also, check into the ESS DCT software as it actually helps the performance and life of the clutch. Just search the forums for more details on that as well.

Best of luck!!!

I can find the original document that I read this in, but here is what is printed in the M DCT drivelogic technical paper. 520nm = 384 lb-ft and the stock motor only produces 295 lb-ft, so there is plenty of headroom.
