DCT wont hold the power...6 speed will hold that plus more with an upgraded clutch.

Why can't you do the same to the DCT? There are upgrades out there for M3's. Pretty much the same thing (ignoring power curves).

They aren't the same transmission for one...but you should understand that torque is what kills transmissions not power, the last dyno of a jb4 g5 iso car put out more torque than a supercharged m3
