    Yeah, I don't believe there is any solution for 6AT, nor will there be in the near future. Swap to DCT and dodson hard parts is really a wet dream at this point. Imagine if they could hold 1k!!!!! WOW...

    Nothing regarding the DCT will convert to the 6AT. The 6AT is a separate problem.

    ncat10 started a thread 335IS Stock flash form ISTA in N54
    Hello all. Can anybody provide proper ZUB# from ISTA for 335IS ( ILAOS ) ? Now i have IJEOS with DCT trans, but have issue with post shifting advance under hight boost conditions. I want to migrate from IJEOS to ILAOS and use bb flash for ILAOS. If anybody have 335IS with ILAOS, can anybody GRAB assemble number via INPA ? I found this one ZUB=7649338 and try to migrate on ILAOS under WINKFP, but boost is not working ( so i Think this is flash for n53 engine )

    It's time to add horsepower guys. I'm not sure why we're going up as quickly as we're going up as I'm not ready for it. I wish traffic and load would go down a bit but, well, this is the trend: So, I'm exploring server upgrade options at the moment. Please bear with me. Also I hope this is easy on the checkbook as this is getting expensive to run.

    I'm curious if that would convert over to the 6AT... being XI, not sure that would do me any good. Pretty cool though!

    Yes, I know who is doing the tuning, just allowing them to do the announcing so they don't regret telling me. I was referring to dodson, so yes, thank you for that reply.

    The first patent photos of the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS have surface online. Discovered by Car Magazine, the pictures reveal the model will follow in the footsteps of the 911 GT3 but adopt a muscular hood and wider, ventilated front fenders. Moving further back, there's double bubble roof, lightweight wheels and rear fenders from the 911 Turbo. The model also has a new engine cover and a sporty rear wing. Inside, there's sports seats and a roll cage that resides where the rear seats would normally be located. Porsche has been relatively coy about the model but it could use a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that develops more than 475 PS (349 kW). It will likely be paired exclusively to a PDK transmission which has been specifically tuned for use in the model. Hit up the source link for additional photos Source: Car Magazine

    Software tuning is not provided by Dodson. They are making some hardware. We're looking at two weeks I think. It's just a matter of shipping.

    Well now, we know its not just the M3 software they can beat, but also the 335is. Assuming stock TCU software is retained. Did dodson say for real they were done and ready and what time frame? I know the horse is beaten dead on this.

    This is 100% correct. And yes, the DCT can be tuned and some awesome upgrades are available. Watch ;)

    It says that it can modify the data area which I'm guessing is where the calibration data is stored. Also says it can calculate the checksum. It seems like an excellent solution! Someone should take the plunge and buy this. They can offer a bench flashing service for these computers. Next big hurdle would be determining which memory regions are which tables and how they interact. Might be tough if you can only flash on a bench considering the TCU is inside of the transmission.

    Folks, I just got some VERY promising information from someone reputable we all know that the TCU can be tuned in the 335is. HOWEVER, The TCU can not have been updated by any tool or by the dealer otherwise it will be bricked. More details once I make sure its okay to say any more. Its the first confirmation I received that the specific DCT we are interested in can be tuned. With the Dodson hard parts finished, combined with this tuning capability, I think the DCT swap has just became relevant.

    Alright I did everything I could to optimize this but it's just too much traffic and load to handle. Fuck it, looks like I have to upgrade the server :(

    Not that I know what I'm doing either, but I found this lists the "Bosch GS19 Gearbox" (TCU) as a flashable component: http://www.evc.de/en/product/spiwizard/parts.asp This device also says it can read and write files but does that mean it gets around the need to have properly signed BINs? Probably not but figured I'd throw it in there. There are some other tools like this as well but same question re the BINs: http://www.autodiagnosticobd.com/news/mini-dsg-reader-download-mini-dsg-gearbox-support-car-list-auto-diagnostic-service-752.html

    Okay guys, here's the latest so far, and what we need: Clutch - We decided on our Twin Plate design which, of course, includes our flywheel also. MSRP will be very affordable. We have the 335i 06-08 fitment almost done, so are looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested Flywheel - Our 1pc Chromoly Flywheel weighs 9kg, and can be used with the oem clutch (or any other oem fitment clutch). MSRP will make it very difficult for you to want to buy any other brand flywheel ;) We have the 335i 06-08 fitment almost done, so are looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested Suspension Arms - We are working on these just now, and should have something within the next few weeks. Again, looking for a serious tester. Please PM me if interested Axles - We've done our preliminary research on these, and all we need now is to find some OEM Axles so that we can take our measurements. If anyone has a spare set of axles that they could loan us (and, if you currently drive a 500lbft+ car), please PM me. The donor will get a set of our new axles at no charge for testing (hence the torque requirement)

    We have not tried any XI fitments so I can not guarantee fitment. Much easier :D

    Any idea when these will be available? Seems like there has been talk about CF driveshafts for over a year now.

    We already saw this comparison earlier in the year when Car and Driver compared the F82 M4 to the Porsche 991 Carrera. In that comparison, the M4 came out on top. Let's see what happens when the Brits over at EVO get a hold of both of these cars for a track comparison. This is the big question, does the M4's power and updated chassis allow it to beat the lighter rear engined Porsche 991 Carrera around the track? EVO does the comparison well showing both cars lapping at the same time. This allows some of the trademark characteristics of the cars to show. Namely that the 911 has less understeer on turn in but this is the area that one traditionally has to be careful with a 911 getting back on the power exiting the apex so that oversteer does not bite you in rear end. The 911 handling is definitely tighter. The M4's additional mass shows as it tends to push a bit. The 911's lead built in and out of turns is made up by the M4's power. Finesse versus muscle is what we witness. The tighter the course gets, the more it ends up favoring the 991. Laptimes (for reference a 458 Speciale laps this track in 1:14.2): Porsche 991 Carrera: 1:17.8 BMW F82 M4: 1:19.2 The 911 in this comparison proves it is the better sports car. To open up a gap like that on the M4 even with a huge power deficit shows how impressive the 991 chassis is. If this was a 911 model with more power, it would not even be a contest. The M4 is more muscle car and that is the direction BMW M is headed with their street cars. If you want the cheaper car with more power, the choice is the M4. If you want the better driver's car, it's the 911.

    The torque is calculated in the DME based on modeling done internally. It should be reasonably accurate until you start messing with load to torque tables or anything else that would start to skew the calculations. At that point you may be making it more accurate for your setup or completely ruining those calculations. If the car is running well with just a flash, those values should be pretty good since they are used for quite a bit of the DMEs requests.

    That's a great 60 foot and excellent elapsed time especially in that density altitude. Nice job hooking on the Mickey Thompson drag radials. You guys concerned about auto woes should be looking to the DCT. When the DCT cars start getting big turbos...
