Pushing A6 RWHP limit with variable boost

As far as I understand most transmission failures at high RWHP levels occur during launch/drift/burnouts and it is common knowledge that A6 is good up to 650 RWHP.


But what happens if we don't push it to the limit at launch/burnout stage and use low boost settings (let's say 5psi, 500-550RWHP rating) and start increasing the boost during the pull? Will it survive if we make 8psi (600-650 RWHP rating) after we launch and get traction and finally push it to 10-12 psi (700-750 RWHP) by the end of the run?

What do you guys think about RPM window switch turning high boost off and on before and after the shiftpoints? Seems like the trans would be abused very little this way (Mild launch + reduced load during shifting).
