Best upgrade I've done was ditching the run flats for some pilot super sports. Much better ride and handling.

I can say the same, but maybe not best upgrade, but most definitely a nice upgrade.

If your going to go FBO start saving up for the SSP clutchpack, Viton seals, and transmission fluid, should run you $3300. My DCT started slipping just north of 16.8psi with the normal n54 advance curve or you can ask santa for it

twin superchargers to boost the twin turbos that boost the engine, neons, fake police lights and siren, lambo doors=weight savings, 23"+ rims, large fake carbon fiber spoiler, VTEC ECU, tow hooks.

or try a simple tune and then go from there when you feel like you need more power. the most popular three tunes are JB4, Procede, and COBB. as already stated, as awesome as that transmission is, itll need to be strengthened to withstand some heavy mods.

If i were you, a tune (Procede) plus a DCI(dualcone intake) would net you a large power gain and introduce you to the modding world(:

have fun!

Have you ever launched your car? If so, how often? It seems like people that launch their DCT start having slipping problems earlier.
