Not much to say until we can program the TCU to do so. But I suspect it will handle the extra revs just fine. The 6AT transmission isn't nearly as failure prone as others have suggested. Just as long as you avoid high boost, sustained brake torqueing and control boost properly during upshifts, the transmissions will remain slip-free. We have several single turbo 6AT cars, running well over 20psi for several months. And no issues to report.
