    • DCT Build Part X - Final machining of SSP oil pan

      Last week we brought you the initial pictures of the build process for the DCT oil pan. You saw one side of the pan and some users asked about seeing the other side. Well, here are the final machining photos revealing the completed pan. As you can see, there are fairly deep fins cut into it for cooling as well as a custom M logo specifically for the BimmerBoost M3. Hey, that's how we roll.

        This is such a stupid comment I won't justify it with anything further.

        Ya General Motors finally getting a dual clutch trans (that still isn't in any cars) is somehow equivalent to aftermarket dual clutch development. What a burn....

        Correct me if I'm wrong but,is that YOUR car? Sticky I'm a bit disapoint in your ricer math. I stand by my original comment.
        Unless of course your comment about no one reaching this new "level" was not directly aimed at your car but just in general.
        Why so nasty with your reply? Damn bro...

        I am just hoping that all this ribbing motivates Sticky to be up Gintani's ass on a daily basis, it's a shame what has happened here. Now sticky is not only getting mad he is also delusional because he seems to think that if his car ever gets completed its going to run with Earls car and mine......that's some funny $#@!.

        The worst part is Sticky is constanly making excuses for them.....he is like a battered wife that accepts getting slapped around by her husband and them makes up lies and excuses to her friends about how she got that broken nose slipping and falling in the shower and how she hot that black eye when she bumped into the wall walking in the house at nugt with the lights were off.

        I know that Gintani is working on a TT M3, I'm wondering... Is that what you've been up to @Sticky ?!

        I probably should not have said anything but, oh well.

        Ok man look, seriously, you have no idea what you're talking about other than seeing a timetable you don't like. I'm fine with it and what is being done so maybe you should be too. It's my car and time and when I'm ready to go over the whole process step by step you'll have a better understanding. Until then, do something else as your same old tune is getting rather boring.

        No my car just happens to have the same blower and will be running more boost. I'm a bit disappointed you don't understand the fact nobody else has done a YSI built motor sleeved M3.

        Why so nasty? Because lot's of people posting idiotic things without knowing what they are talking about or what it takes to build an M3 to this level including what issues one might run into. So when you say no numbers have been reached first of all you are wrong and secondly just wait patiently.

        From my side it is funny. It's the same routine OMG so long blah blah blah. Perhaps people can get on the topic of an M3 motor and transmission build instead.

        I think to shut people up for a quick moment. Is to at least get a wheel dyno figure of your actual car right now.

        I'd love to. In reality I'm probably not qualified as i'm an n54 guy, but i'd like to see discussion. But how can we without new updates from you on your car? It's all secrecy almost, you say you're going to do this huge reveal, and i'm excited, but maybe if you gave us some info that people could eat up and be positive about this thread could get back on track, no? Is it really proprietary? And if that's the case how can you expect us to talk about it if you won't share new updates until it's already done.

        I always go with what "my" actual setup makes,not what the "other guy" makes on the dyno that has all the same parts I have. Same thing with "well,his car has all the same parts&makes the same HP as mine so I should run a 9.99 cause he ran a 9.99"...To me thats ricer math.
        That thread you linked me to is irrelevant IMO since it is not your actual car,just the same blower (and whatever other parts you may or may not share with that build).
        I wasnt trying to offend you,if thats how you took it then it was not my intention.

        I will wait for actual dyno/track numbers from your car patiently&quietly from now on....

        Ya like I don't want to post anything. People should just be patient these posts are absurd and idiotic. Easy to sit there and type especially when someone has no idea what is going on.

        You'll get them when I post them. Until then I don't know what to tell you.

        I'm surprised the speculation and ribbing bothers you frankly, I've seen you speculate on the status of numerous projects(vishnu's, ess cars etc) and speculate so and so blew his motor cause of some thing that seems odd to you etc. I get that you'd like everyone to just never post on this thread til you have something you feel like sharing but if this one anyone elses thread you'd be right in there saying "maybe they blew the motor while breaking it in/tuning it and they dont want to say and they're rebuilding" etc. You more than anyone should know that once you post something on a forum you gotta accept peoples opinions, otherwise dont put anything up in the first place and no one will ever comment.

        I'm sorry you have to give me specifics as discussion about Vishnu finally brought about comment on the misfires caused by the dual mass flywheel so sorry please point me to baseless speculation you are referring to?

        It doesn't bother me. What bothers me is people are having trouble getting it to sink through their heads that their timetable and what they think in their own mind should happening is not reality. I'm not some retard sitting here twiddling my thumbs and hoping one day a car will get done. I was just there a few days ago, I know what is going on, and I'm more than comfortable/happy with it. So people should probably listen to what I tell them about my own car instead of inventing their own reality.

        Get it?
