    Very easy cap to get off
    lol, i got fat hands too. Trust me, you'll be fine. My recommendation is to grab it from under the 2 hard lines. It pops off without too much effort. Not tight in there at all.
    Oh and when you refill, dont use the funnel, itll take forever since theres no vent in the system. I stuck my fluid transfer pump(under 10 dollars at autoparts store)and pumped it into the line from up above. I have the catch cat in the firewall area and drilled a hole through the black liner.

    Thanks @ukurish for the idea. Ive been fortunate to not have any weird trans behavior but with the new tires and better times this is hopefully good prevention.

    Woohoo. Its finally getting cooler here. Hopefully i can get out there tomorrow. Enjoy the install. I will embarrassingly admit i spentvan hour trying to find the vent cap on the passenger side of car near the two hard lines even going from underneath until i easily spotted it from up top on the driver side lol. Grrrrr

    I hope it will solve your problems guys, btw itís not necessary instal bridig hose on the top of the catch can you can do as outlet on the side. That way filter cover should clear. Waiting for results!

    Lol, I was telling Rodizzle how to see it in post #74 of this thread.

    A couple questions

    What did you plug the outlet with, did it come with something to plug it?

    And did you change out all the fluid or just add to what you had. Not sure the SSP at $200 per 4L is justifiable.

    Iím not sure that itís justifiable at $200 for 4 liters either but I really donít think that thereís any truth to it being rebranded royal purple

    Well that's the cost all over the internet unless they fell off the back of a truck or something, lol.

    Did you find a better deal out there?

    Lol...nope....I bit the bullet and paid the price based on what my friend at Audi suggested....just saying that Iím not sure itís really worth the price but Iíve spent a lot more money on a lot worse shit in my life so Iím not sweating it

    The catch can came with a plug and a bunch of bungs so you wont need to buy anything except a male to male 1/2 or 3/8 coupler if you want to put the mini filter extended out on a hose.

    I was going to put in either oem or oem compatible pentosin ffl4. The dealership had the oem with my discount for $23 per liter so i just bought it local. Fwiw the oem stuff smells slightly sweet and has kind of a slight greenish glow to it like motul 300v. Esters in there?

    The more time that I spend discussing the DSG with my buddy at Audi the more I am convinced that we do not need upgraded clutch packs and a TCU revision to increase clamping force

    Increasing clamping force creates more heat and excessive heat causes clutch slippage, short shifts, gear skips and slams etc. so cooling seems to be much more of a priority

    He happened to be working on a modded RS7 doing an engine rebuild while also swapping out turbos in a S6 for RS7 turbos and he said that these cars are less stressful on the DSG than ours because of the very different torque curves and our aggressive pulley ratios make it even worse

    He showed me some trans temp VCDS logs of the DSGs at the onset of and during launch sequences and the temp spikes are insane

    This brings me to my point....

    What if we used a Killer Chiller with a 12V 3 way bypass to cool the DSG fluid just prior to launching it and during our passes and then switched it back to the standard or upgraded cooling loop afterwards?

    Thoughts?

    Pete

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the DSG fluid needs to be in a very specific range of temperature to operate at its peak effectiveness. This is different than with intake temps where the cooler the better is fine. This makes me think a Setrab style cooler like Ukurish used may be the better option? Not sure.

    Under normal or even hard driving conditions that is correct but as we activate launch control and actually launch the DSG temps spike tremendously so Iím talking about just prior to launching and during the pass

    Some data:

    Went to the track and to a private stretch of road last night.

    After multiple launces and runs to 125mph i saw peak trans fluid temps of around 180f. Normal they settled to 165f

    No issues with shifting or jerking rpms at the track even with significant wheel spin. The track was not prepped and was more slippery than the pavement we have in fl that has crushed shells in it (pretty grippy).

    Now interestingly when i was heading home on a long private stretch of road i did some more launches and got some jerking bucking in trans gear engagement from gear 1-2. Ive launched 3 cars with this software now dozens and dozens of times and not had this issue until recently

    I did have the catch can installed. Whats interesting is that with the catch can installed near the cabin air intake i was able to notice the following...

    No smell of trans fluid street driving or at track with aggressive launches with wheel spin.

    When i did get the bucking jerking trans behavior on the road i smelled the very distinct smell of trans fluid vented through my catch can.

    I checked the catch can and fluid went in it. Its a long travel up the hose so im surprised... i suspect at the very least there was clear cavitation of the fluid maybe burping causing that very distinct odor that doesnt happen at other times.

    Im wondering if we actually need baffled dsg pans..

    http://gtr.speedforsale.com/dodson-g...sp-p-3110.html

    Im also going to remove my dsg mount insert today. Ive never had this before installing it so just want to rule out any effect it could have on fluid movement in the trans



    EDIT: i removed the solid transmission mount insert i had in the car and went out and did a bunch of launches and so far so good. No issues at all

    This is interesting. I thought these thing were to just clean up any slop.

    That sucks if that's what's causing this. Well I mean if sucks but it'd be great not to have to do extra trans cooling etc.

    Did you put the factory one back in there?

    Good stuff Mike! Interesting info on the catch can and trans mount

    Iím wondering if there are 2 different temp readings and ranges as thereís 2 different areas with fluid and according to this the temps seem way different and it says that thereís 2 temp sensors in the gearbox

    Pete
    Hard to say. The temps you are referencing are max temps not temps we should be seeing. So if im maxing 85c or so and no limps until well above that it makes sense as i dont think any of us have gotten trans temp codes thrown like i have in many other cars. I can fish around vcds and try and log other terms as well though just to see.

    Clutch temp is a lot higher then fluid outside of clutch pack ! If Iím not mistaken I had 100c + on clutch and 50-70 outside of the clutch pack Iím not 100% sure I have to find my old log

    Gotcha ill start monitoring that. I did fluid temp only because i can monitor it all the time as an option on my main aeroforce gauge

    The readings from the fault I got when clutch pack 2 fried and DSG went into limp mode. Note the difference between input and output speed. Temp was only 72.

    P17DO Slippage too High, Engine speed: 5790/min, Transmission input speed 5790/min, Transmission output speed 490/min, Engine torque: 288Nm, Transmission fluid temp: 72C, Nominal Pressure shaft 2: 16bar, Specified torque clutch 2: 1580Nm, Clutch pressure: clutch 2 data 16.08 bar, Nominal current partial transmission 2 data: 1500mA, Pressure clutch 2 data: .731 bar, Nominal slip data: 15/min

    Curious if every tune is represented in having that jerking gear slam behavior? As far as i can see everyone is represented yes? I find it odd i never had this issue until the past two months.

    I just did about 20 launches tonight and got some jerking 1-2 gear when i used the actual launch rev limiter (low 2k limiter) but no issue on the 19 other low rpm upswing release (aka mashngo) launches.

    I am running 2 extra quarts. Im stumped how i never had this before. Its happened 3 times now and i dont fully understand it.

    How was your wheel spin during the affected launches compared to your good launches?

    DL501 transmission upgrades / Issues decision

    Mike , I thought I was the only one having this issue when I had my 034 tune . Later I found out that Leo had this jerking as a well on his APR too. Now that Iím on IE, I have it but not as severe as 034. Which makes me believe it is somewhat turning related as well. But With IE experience this jerking only when my tires spin and now always ( 3-4:10)
    I have my catch can and fluids are ready to install one of these days. Maybe it will fix it but itís canít hurt to have extra fluid in that transmission.

    Didnít have it on 91/93 tune , once I went e40 it was game over lol

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    Its possible its more induced with wheel spin but i hate to say that with certainty because i was getting quite a bit of wheelspin at the track to include one run that resulted in a 2.1 60ft it spun so bad literally through first and start of second with no shifting or jerking issue.

    Its strange i cant find a common denominator yet.

    I'd like to know how many of those that have experienced this have had a catastrophic failure.

    did scls4 clutch pack 2 fry during one of these 'wheel spin launch jerks' can't remember

    I need to figure out how to link a video so you guys can hear the failure for yourselves.....it cringe worthy for sure. I did not use launch control......I just mashed the gas from a standstill, roads had some moisture on them so the car spun hard in 1st....like moved sideways as much as it moved forward and then the shift to second happened and within a fraction of a second I got a loud thud and immediately let off gas and the transmission malfunction light and limp mode came on. The thud was similar to what I've heard in other vids of wheel spin jerk. I'll text it to you if you want....its a shitty vid but you can hear it.....my son wasn't supposed to be videoing dad being a jackass on back roads. We went joy riding last night and I had several hard wheel spins with smooth 1-2 shifts so SSP clutches are holding nicely.....still to chicken shit to use launch control.
