Hi,<p>I've looked up this questions all over the internet as well as surfed past posts but couldn't find the answer, so please accept my apologies if this is a "duh!" question:<p>For 2004 & 2005 the 5-speed automatic transmission required that the engine reduce maximum torque from 295 lb-ft to 256 lb-ft (as compared to the stick).<p>With the switch to the 6-speed automatic, is this still the case, or is the 6 speed geartronic able to fully take the 295 lb-ft of torque?<p>Of course, this affects whether I buy new or used!<p>thanks!<p>Jason<br>1993 940 Turbo Wagon<br>1992 240DL <- Sold

Re: 2006 / 2007 V70R Geartronic Question (jhleung)

Of course if you ask this in the <B>R FORUM,</B> you may get some answers<br>However, I'll answer anyway as I'm in a decent mood.<br>The 06's are SUPPPOSED to not be limited in 1st but we suspect they are a LITTLE <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> as the 0 to 60 is still a <B>bit </B>slower than the 6 speed manual<br>(It shouldn't be)<br>All you have to do if you buy an 04 or an 05 is to get the <B>stage 2 IPD upgrade</B> with the limiter removed. <br>I've never driven one, but those who have say it's VERY quick.<br><B>Again, ask on the R board</B>
