Question 6AT limits with ST/upgraded twin setups?

How many people run an ST/upgraded twin setup with the stock A6 and are any of them having any issues? I've tried to research this but there either isn't too many people running them with an A6 or there just isn't much documented info.

That's good to hear. Has any work been done to the tranny or precautionary measures been taken in regards to the A6?

Good to hear that a stock A6 is handling it. How many miles are on your car?

Can I has whatever magic tears you pour in your 6AT fluid?

Yours holds 700+ WTQ, mine is bitching at maybe 500WTQ.
