• 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.

        Mmm what do you have sir!? Not too many cars out there can hang with the stuff UGR puts out. 1500awdhp just sounds silly Click here to enlarge . If all goes as planned that will be the route I take and keep the M3 at it's current power level. I have an ~80 mile daily commute 7 days a week but I'm totally against the idea of a daily beater. My thought is that I love driving so wouldn't I want to enjoy the 1.5hr a day in the car? M3, AMG, & RS are the perfect blend for a daily IMO.

        I'm still a year away I figure as I just bought two gas stations that I'm closing on hopefully this week (we all know how closings get delayed....was originally for March 1st). They definitely put a dent in the account and I don't want to make any major purchases in the first year of running them. Won't feel right about it. The time will come though...I'm still relatively young.

        BTW where are ya located?

        I have a few turbo bikes,nothin crazyClick here to enlarge

        On a side note,a yellow UGR TTG crashed today on Sunrise Higway racing a certain,familiar 1300whp GT-R(the one who won the Pocono event last year)Click here to enlarge

        It is not a car, it is a bike with a much better power to weight ration than even a UGR car.

        oldgixxer,
        Nice...I'm on 78 and 287 up to Wayne every day. Turbo bikes...insane! It's one thing hitting 150+ in a car but in a bike...wow! Well I'll let you know when the time comes. Very sad to hear about the crash - hope everyone was okay. Gotta be careful...never know what can happen.

        JRCart,
        Yeah I thought his post said car. Makes a lot more sense...bikes are another game. They are just so light compared to any car out there.

        But its an additive. You can boost any engine but you cant always build one engine to be as efficient as another. Depending on the limits a smaller displacement may make more power than a larger displacement because of its efficiency.

        I agree. I'm just explaining my perspective. I think 4 weeks was a best case scenario, however you did make it sound definitive. Either way, Good to see your progress.

        I tried to explain it. My goal is not just 1 roll on video but a full video comparison with high quality HD and editing to launch new network websites and a youtube channel with it. As in, use it for exposure to benefit business. Won't be Top Gear production worthy but you should see my point here.

        This thread has been raped so many times I really don't think it will matter.

        Jcart/Campbell,

        You guys would be a good match for the red stage 2.75 HPF car (Kenton). Hopefully you guys get a chance to line up.

        Chicago wannagofast is sold out...need to be on a waiting list...
        Well you guys keep letting the tail of the cat out of the bag but i want to see the whole fkin pu$$y !! so stop teasing us and tell us what really is going on underneath those beasts !!

        Btw i tried asking JRcart on MBW but maybe he didnt see my question .. I have a C63 Coupe with the MCT trans ive seen weistec mentioned it can handle 770 Crank HP without breaking and JRCART said he is running 11psi with ~660whp(that i now see is probably higher since hes sandbagging) on the stock MCT and BS motor. Only thing is i have a non P31 engine without the forged pistons(i have cast pistons) and lightweight connecting rods/ crank even tho they are forged steel on the non P31 as well just not "light weight"

        My question is how much power/boost can i run on the non P31 C63 coupe with MCT ? is it the same as JRCarts BS does the "sls" internals give more strength or is the non P31 engine strong enough to hold up to the point that the transmission needs upgrade

        Seriously these questions are for the M156 section... please create a new thread on this topic it doesn't belong here.
