P.S. dumb question (how much hp will add transmission flash) - dumb answer.
But you’re the one who answered the dumb question with a figure of “+30 HP easily”.

Circling The Drain didn’t ask you how much hp the transmission flash would add.

He asked you “how exactly does a transmission generate power”. And then you read the subsequent posts, started feverishly googling topics like “internal combustion” and “can a transmission make power” and you realized that it cannot.

really? even dog understands that transmission cannot generate power, I wrote "+30hp easily" and yes, few of the "smartest" guys here chimed in
I bet if someone would ask how much hp would add ///M badge and I would answer "15 at least" some very "smart" guy like you would come and tell that I googled and found that ///M badge cannot add power?

You guys are funny , but I think what rahlow meant was what limitations will be lifted with a trans tune to get power/torque where it should be without stock limitations, not what additional power will it make (and I think it is just tq that will be "less" limited and not hp)

The question would be what blinker fluid makes the most HP?

I once read somewhere that a similar flash allows for more slipping of the transmission? More wear and tear on the internals? Can someone offer some insight?

Thank you GT500 for correcting my question. Screw the rest of you mean ass BMW drivers. Just trying to gauge how much faster the car is likely to be after the flash is done.

Not sure how much slipping can be electronically controlled on a torque converter tranny, but in today's world of electronically controlled parking brakes, who knows...

I do know however that the dual-cluth trannys such as DSG can be reprogrammed to both up the hydraulic pressure so the clutch packs grab harder and faster, and for the shifts to happen faster as well as allowing more cluth slip when launching. It doesn't kill the transmission straight away, but it does wear out faster, specially the clutch packs.
