    I even told AK, it wasnt until i tried accelerating from a higher gear w/o downshifting that i noticed a lack of tq- comparitively-

    i went from 3-4-5-6th gr, and my car feels fast, but i can look around and look at the speedo ect. im good. AK's car and that AA blower, i was like HOLY $#@!IN $#@!!!!! it just wanted more and more and more, like my old fully modded 2004 R1 I had, its wanted more and more and wasnt just going, but yea, pulling, it was crazy, like i said, i was scared..

    The M3 builds speed in a weird way, it doesn't feel like it has torque yet you feel it has power. The gearing helps it tremendously.

    It's a cool feeling and different, power doesn't fall off.

    When ever you want bro just let me know

    Called and got a small update today. Process is being documented properly. Trans is down and apart, apparantly I really did a number on it as things were burnt up and some shafts were bent. They are waiting on a few things, but I should be good for a weds. pickup, possibly thursday, but , my schedule probably only permits a friday pickup. So, ill let you guys know what I hear in the next few days.

    Get someone who can tune the TCU for you...honestly that will have more to do with it than the guts. If the ESS guys can do DCT software, I'm sure they could write a flash for your TCU.

    +1. Optimal shift points already programmed in to the AT with launch control added would be awesome. The benz scene is all over TCU upgrades, haven't heard a thing for bmw's ATs, maybe for good reason?

    ESS isn't doing anything with the DCT software. They just raise the fluid line pressure, that's it. They do not have real control, nobody does.

    I see. Only the same if the valve body upgrade makes the auto clutch packs engage harder.

    i wonder if the DCT transmission would fit without any major changes specially on the software side . Sticky how much power and torque was yours withstanding without issues ?
