    DCT Build Part XII - Build complete, pictures of final assembly, transmission cooler, and Viton seals

    Well, this has been a rather lengthy road to completion but the transmission is basically complete. The car was dropped off by SSP last month to Gintani who should have the motor in by the end of this week. The problem is SSP mounted their trans cooler in the location the heat exchanger for the supercharger needs to go so SSP will need to come to Gintani's facility to re-run their lines as the cooler will need to go in a different location. What took so long for this update? Well, we have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for SSP to send us details on the Viton seals that required 3 redesigns but never received the information on why these seals are superior to the stock units.

    So, I decided to do my own research and here is what I came up with. These are the stock BMW seals used in the DCT. What is wrong with them exactly? We do not know other than they apparently are not up to the task:

    Here are the Viton seals which delayed the project by 3 months. Viton is a synthetic rubber used for seals, O-rings, things of that sort. Viton was likely used as it is less susceptible to decay and already used in BMW applications such as in VANOS. Viton has much higher temperature and chemical resistance characteristics than the stock seals. Here is what they look like:

    This is the DCT cooler that was mounted by SSP up front. This needs to be moved somewhere else as the supercharger heat exchanger will need to go there. This means SSP will need to come out and run their lines again checking all their fluids and so forth before tuning can take place:

    This is the final assembly. So, the transmission is built but it took about a year longer than estimated. I believe I was as patient as possible and hopefully this will all be wrapped up in December with a built motor, built transmission, a YSI, and a ton of horsepower.

    Just messing, I can't wait man. I don't know how I have gone this long. I would rather give up sex for a year at this point.

    Alex is on his way to China or something and he said they would have the motor in by the end of the week. So then I guess SSP will need to come out to figure out where to put their cooler/lines at around the same time of the SC install. Then tuning... man I can't wait!

    I just hope it all goes smoothly. The thought of having a built motor SC DCT M3 is just... awesome.

    Hell yea, even if it wasn't supercharged. Having a built motor is just balls of steel by itself lol. And you have the tranny built and you throwing a fat SC on it. This thing will move when the tuning is finished. MOVE.

    Why else would you have had the tranny done...
    So, ETA of the finished car? Any ideas?

    They just didn't know that is where Gintani mounted the aftercooler. My SC was sold before they got the car so it was removed.

    Yes, as stated in the article, later this month hopefully.

    Oh ya, I don't even really pay attention to the seasons. All I know is now is a better time to drag race and the pool isn't as warm.

    I have no explanation for the delay nor any understanding of it. I still don't understand why this took a year longer than it should have.

    I don't know where they are going to put it. Don't think there is room in the driver's side.

    The DCT in the E82 is the exact same as in the M3. Who has the clutch and spring kit?

    Great news Sticky!

    Would it not be a whole lot more efficient for SSP to get Gintani to relocate the oil cooler? It isn't that complicated; just requires re-running some lines....which should be a cake walk for Gintani.

    It's not like you need my help:
