I've just changed to an aero auto which I swapped all my stuff over from the manual such as suspension,brakes,wheels, etc and had ecu upgrade. It was when I saw Giles's aero at Abbott I got hooked. It got me wondering who out there has got the fastest auto and what sort of things have they done. After all there must be other sad people like me out there.

Hayes, did Giles's say how much the auto box could take reliably power and torque wise and not self destruct, also any idea what hp your's is producing just now, reason being i am looking at a super chip for the V6 but don't want to overload the auto box.

Microcat, it is torque, not horsepower, that will kill the auto box. While you might raise the power well beyond that of a 2.3T, you're unlikely to exceed the 2.3T's torque by very much. Keep the maximum torque below 300Nm, which is the design limit of the gearbox. Maximum torque of the standard V6 is 270Nm.
