... steptronic's however, can slip once you start upgrading turbos, depending how much you thrash it... a lot of the vishnu single autos are now being sold without much info so i'd take that as you will..

i don't know of any issues before 425-450~rwhp?
How do the 6 speed autos seem to hold up compared to the manuals? Clutch in the autos still able to take a beating up to 300rwkw?
