    Absolutely, just saying most of what you want is doable without it. I still haven't seen an LC lower than 3500, which you can do with the 135is ZB. Shift speed is in the TCU AFAIK and not sure what timing you're referring to, but ignition interrupts, decay/recover gradients are also in the DME. TCU can cut ignition timing too, but think it's only a function of torque/load limits. It's definitely less of an issue on DCT compared to AT (so far). I don't see how an M TCU will communicate with a non-M DME, but if you do manage it, hell, I'd give it a go. Like I said, in for results :D

    This is good news and as PorscheBoost expected. Dodson has a PDK transmission upgrade for the all wheel drive Porsche 991.1 and 991.2 generation 911 Turbo models. The upgrade retails for $10k and requires a roughly two week turnaround time. PorscheBoost inquired if the Dodson 911 Turbo upgrade would carry over to 991.2 Carrera PDK models including those that are RWD drive: If you have a 4WD or RWD PDK 991.2 and are worried about running too much torque through the transmission with upgrades Dodson has you covered. The only thing holding 991.2 Carrera models back right now is the lack of engine upgrade options on the market. That will be changing shortly if PorscheBoost has anything to say about it. Details of the Upgrade: 10 Plate Build Changes the clutch from sealed clutch unit to serviceable clutch for this and future upgrades Quality Machined billet high grade hardened baskets High grade billet steel lid and splines with billet turned cover Quality Exedy Frictions Designed for up to 950nm torque Each clutch is custom hand built to exact tolerances International collect and return upgrade service

    You are also right. So you going to flash it?

    Yeah but that's not the only part that dictates shift speed or timing is it... it's the TCU.

    But try and find anywhere on the net where someone has tried it and You won't. Everyone says it probably won't work but don't know for sure and there's only one way to find out... be brave and risk bricking the thing.

    Here is a very well done rendering of the upcoming F90 M5. We are inching closer to the official reveal. What do we know? No dual clutch transmission but instead a ZF sourced automatic. Also standard all wheel drive with a 100% rear wheel drive mode which should making getting heat into the rear tires easy. What else? The S63TU 4.4 liter V8 will be tweaked somewhat which is honestly the best thing about the M5. BMW will offer the most displacement out of its German rivals. When was the last time BMW M could say that? Imagine stroking one to 5.0 liters. The truth is BMW is already getting 600+ horsepower out of the S63TU so it will be interesting to see how much more they push it. They will likely change out the turbochargers for bigger units. This car is going to be a dragster. That is fine. That seems to be what people want. All wheel drive solves the problem of F10 M5 owners whining they can't get traction from a stop. Who cares if the car will be nose heavy now? Who cares if the manual is dead? Who cares about 50/50 weight distribution? Also, will BMW actually be able to make it lighter? Doubtful. The F90 M5 will be the most radical departure yet from the traditional M5 formula yet the most conformist M5 at the same time.

    Naturally aspirated AMG V8 against the BMW's 3.0 liter twin turbo I6. Both motors benefit greatly from tuning as we all know. The W204 C63 AMG is heavier than the 335xi by roughly 500 pounds but 6.2 liters of displacement helps move it. It also has the P31 package which means stronger engine internals borrowed from the M159 and a more aggressive factory tune. The 335xi is a manual example with an MHD Stage 2 flash. Nothing is stated about any other bolt on modifications. They start with a dig race and how it should play out is the 335xi should get a lead with the M156 top end then coming into play. That is exactly how it goes. That means in the next race when they go from a roll the C63 should have the advantage once traction is removed from the equation. That it does, it pulls a couple cars. They do another dig race and the 335xi gets out in front only for the C63 to make up the ground and pass again up top. Solid runs all around.

    DCT shift firmness and to some extent part-throttle shift points can be affected via DME tuning. If M3 TCU flashes/DriveLogic/adjustable LC worked on non-Ms by simply unhiding a CIC menu and flashing, I'm sure it would've been done and confirmed years ago, but in for results since you seem hell bent on flashing it anyway.

    There is still something to be said for the naturally aspirated performance motor. Yes, turbo engine have basically taken over but no matter how good they get they will not match the response of the naturally aspirated engine or that beautiful high rpm shriek as it pulls with ever increasing urgency to the lofty redline. The new 4.0 liter 991.2 GT3 is the best iteration yet. It makes 493 horsepower which is the same as the 991.2 GT3 RS 4.0 except it revs higher to 9000 rpm. This is the same redline as the 991.2 GT3 3.8 motor. It is simply a phenomenal powerplant. Porsche changed the crank, bearings, pistons, rings, added a new liner material, etc. They are pushing the design to the absolute limit. Porsche also fixed their major mistake which was not offering a manual transmission option. The GT3 is not about acceleration or just numbers. It is about the driving experience. If a car like a GT3 does not deserve a manual, what car does? The reviewers below fall in love with the car and how can you not? The sound, the handling, the response, the steering feel, etc., all combine to make the most glorious naturally aspirated 911 ever built. As an owner of a turbocharged 911 I absolutely love the car but I lust after the GT3. It does not matter how good these turbo engines get the torque down low does not make me forget what it is like to rev out a naturally aspirated performance motor to redline and the satisfaction of hitting that perfect upshift. The turbo engine does not offer that as power and torque drop off well before redline. It just does not feel as exciting. It also does not offer the same throttle response or sound. The GT3 just engrosses you in the experience all around. You are convinced you are in a race car for the road because that is basically what it is. There is room for both on the market. Porsche should be commended for not just scrapping the naturally aspirated engine completely but giving buyers the choice. That is what a company that makes enthusiast vehicles centered around the driving experience is supposed to do.
