    In preparation for the Single Turbo Kit, I am reviewing the options of going for level 10 6AT build from scratch or a DCT Swap. The DCT swap is ~4k dearer than a level 10 6AT build but the DCT swap will offer faster shift speed and for some odd reason, I have more faith in the upgraded clutch pack from Dodson than the level 10 option. No one have tried it before apart from Gintani's attempt. No update from them as yet. Anyway, I hope you guys could help with the queries below: Level 10 6AT Build - 800whp and 700wtq 1. I am based in Australia so it will be cheaper for me to get Level 10 to build a 6AT from another core instead of mine. Will there be any compatibility issue in terms of software or hardware? Based on the part number from RealOEM, the hardware appears to be the same. I am just worried the TCU in America will be different from the ones in Australia. 2. Have you replace your 6AT with a 6AT from a wreck? Did it work and what's involved besides the manual labour to replace the 6AT? I presumed programming is required to ensure your DME will work with the new 6AT TCU. Will Autologic be sufficient or do I need to go back to the dealer for programming? DCT Swap with Dodson Clutch - 800wtq 1. Anyone with insider news from Gintani on the Dodson upgraded clutch pack? Is it working or not? PM me if you will like to keep it private. 2. For this job, I am thinking of buying a whole 335iS wreck from America or the n54 DCT wreck from the UK. I am looking for someone who's willing to buy the wreck on my behalf, remove and package the parts and organise shipping to Australia. The buyer can use or sell the parts from the wreck and I will have NO entitlement on the wreck or profit after I get all the parts required for the DCT swap. I am willing to reimburse man-hours involved in buying the wreck, organising shipping, the labour involved in removing and packaging the parts for delivery to me. Please PM me if you are interested in the above. Cheers, Alex

    BMW and AMG were right next to each other at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show. Even though the proximity was close the energy between the two was completely different. While AMG had this buzz in the air of excitement with new products BMW could not have been more businesslike. You notice this when the first thing that happens when you walk over to BMW is their security stops you to check your credentials before you are allowed near their precious i8. Relax guys, I don't even want one. Plus I've seen it before the previous year. And the year before that. In the exact same spot next to the exact same i3 with the exact same info... So with three years in a row of the same i8 and i3 and BMW pushing its 'i' brand into the spotlight over everything else it is starting to get a bit boring. Was there anything exciting? Well, not really. Since BMW debuted the 2016 F85 X5M and F86 X6M almost a month before the show there was not really anything new to learn about not to mention the M SUV's are not all that different from the vehicles they are replacing both inside and out. Compared to Mercedes-AMG the display at BMW was boring. While the AMG reps were standing proud on an elevated display singing the praises of their new AMG GT sports car and C63 AMG you did not see any excitement from BMW or their reps. Not a single rep approached me to discuss anything and that may be for the best as what are they supposed to say when I ask where their AMG GT or Black Series answer is? While AMG was debating me, popping hoods, interacting, and engaging with the enthusiasts BMW was making sure no 'undesirables' were getting too close to the i8. Say what you will but you can feel how each company is changing direction not only in their product lines but how they are displayed. Mercedes-AMG proudly showed off having the most powerful four-cylinder motor in the world with their M133 engine display stand and BMW showed off their carbon spoilers from the M Performance catalog on an orange M4. In addition to their 'future is here' display that apparently is the future of the BMW car show circuit for the... foreseeable future. Your current future lacks excitement BMW. It is what it is.

    Searched but couldn't find anything related to this. Was doing the install and when I put the lock ring back on and tightened it down, a small spurt of fuel came out of the large vent tube connector. Is this a sign that I did something wrong, or is it from the pressure imbalance between the tank and outside? Don't want to start my car in case I did the install wrong.

    Hey guys, So my Openflash Tablet won't connect to my car. Every time it starts writing and then says "failure to communicate with DME". I recently blew out a few transistors in my DME a couple weeks ago and replaced those but this thing will not connect at all. It says the same thing when I try to read codes also. Any ideas?? Thanks

    So I was at the red light and to my right there is a hpe700 cts-v. I told myself that thing must be decently fast until I looked it up and feel the mighty m4 w a tune & DR is not too bad, especially when comparing the 24k of that hpe kit ;-)
