    I don't think they released any of that kind of info. I don't really think there is much function to it, solely looks.

    What I don't understand is why we can't tub the rear. Can't we modify the rear control arms or something like that?

    Honestly, those fenders are obnoxious and you probably need the whole kit.

    this is awesome! Maybe the application will trickle down to the DCTs used in other bmws (like n54!)...

    How do you hold off from the car for this long? 6 months is like a lifetime!

    That's the idea, the DCT's are all the same in BMW applications.

    I agree with you, it is about time for people to start showing the world what BMW's can do.

    Here are pics of the car after SSP started on it after it arrived, more updates after the holiday weekend and expect updates on a regular basis as they finish this. What you see here is the transmission out as well as the factory cooling system which is being upgraded to basically the same cooling unit they use on the GTR. The area in the passenger side front is where it will be mounted, they measured, it fits:

    A while to go, we will hopefully be getting some more concrete updates from SSP after this weekend. I'm interested in the cooling system as well as the new clutch packs with 11 discs. They will handle a lot more torque... and they will need to Click here to enlarge

    DCT Build Part VIII - Putting it back together

    As of right now, the transmission is completed and the cooling system is in the process of being completed. Where we left off was the car being taken to SSP for the build of the cooling system. To make this all make sense we will not skip ahead, instead showing you each step. Here SSP is getting ready to put it together with the new clutch discs. They laid out all the parts and used 3d scanning equipment to record them to aid in the production of the parts. Everything was laid out to make sure the parts were clean and accounted for. Additionally, they were working on prototype viton seals for the transmission. The next update will have details on the cooling system.

    They just need to finish the cooling system and they will bring the car back to Gintani who should be in the process of completing my low compression built motor.
