    Update. Picking up car from body shop in a few hours. Andrew and myself have been talking, and we think it may be something as simple as the paddle (or something attached) giving me the upshift issue. Gonna try a few pulls to see if I can shift with the knob rather then paddle without issue.

    little update.

    Code that was being thrown was a fuel pressure sensor. We replaced that and no more limp mode. We yanked the DR's off and tossed my street tires on and zero shifting issues now. ALTHOUGH I have been using the shifter and not paddle for high rpm shifting. We are thinking it may be something related to the paddle/steering wheel some how. We are gonna do some more testing this upcoming wed at the track and see if it resolves the issue.

    i find that very hard to believe, as i had that issue, and no problems shifting.. when it would limp from FP, it would be an engine malfucntion, not trans

    Im not sure man. I haven't used the paddles since i got the car back, and she hasn't missed a shift since. Im paranoid to use them and have her bang off rev limit.

    2nd update.

    I took her out tonight, and ran her hard, multiple times. Shifting with the selector, and not the paddles, I didn't have one issue all night. I haven't tried using the paddles yet, and will most likely replace the upshift one soon. So, im guessing that this issue was either caused by a faulty paddle, something to do with going to a much larger tire (correlating to wheel speed/rpm etc.. on a giant 275/45 DR) or

    He had limps from fuel pressure. Replaced that sensor on saturday. Tranny had a bunch of codes, but not sure if it limped as well.....

    My guess is he has a faulty paddle.....

    As to the pulley, the off the shelf Vortech pulleys have a very different offset from the ESS pulley.

    mind posting the dct codes? i scanned mine with the ess s/w and there were plenty there, but no CEL.. id like to compare.

    interesting about the offsets, i was told mine was abnormal for not fitting..

    Well, found out the issue finally. Its the freaking 275/45/18 drag radials. Something about the size/circumference is throwing the DMU/DCT off somehow. When i had my street tires on, the stick and paddles were working perfect. We figured it was the paddle at first, but ive been using it for the past 2/3 days with ZERO issues bringing her to 8600rpm to shift. I tossed on the drag radials for tonight, and BOOM, shift issues EVERYWHERE. I can shift sub 8k, but anything close or over it will cause the needle to dance at redline.

    That's weird I've used those drag radials and it's completely fine. Why would the circumference affect anything when you can change the final drive and it requires no programming?

    No clue, and i meant diameter, not circumference. Andrew is stumped as well, we are going to try and see why, but for whatever reason, the diameter of the wheel/tire is causing the issue.

    Well bigger diameter will increase circumference we're saying the same thing.

    I'm stumped as well, I have no clue. People go from 18's to 20's all the time, track tires, radials, and no issues. First I have heard of this on the E9X M3 and I can't figure it out.

    I don't see how the difference in diameter between DRs & Street Tires screwed all the electronics up, especially when you have the Northeast ESS/ACM guys running almost every different level ESS supercharger and using DRs with no problems. This would also be the 1st time I've ever heard on the forums someone having trouble using DRs with their ESS supercharger?? Click here to enlarge

    I don't see how the difference in diameter between DRs & Street Tires screwed all the electronics up, especially when you have the Northeast ESS/ACM guys running almost every different level ESS supercharger and using DRs with no problems. This would also be the 1st time I've ever heard on the forums someone having trouble using DRs with their ESS supercharger?? Click here to enlarge
    Maybe it's due to the higher redline software here?
