    • DCT Build Part VIII - Putting it back together

      As of right now, the transmission is completed and the cooling system is in the process of being completed. Where we left off was the car being taken to SSP for the build of the cooling system. To make this all make sense we will not skip ahead, instead showing you each step. Here SSP is getting ready to put it together with the new clutch discs. They laid out all the parts and used 3d scanning equipment to record them to aid in the production of the parts. Everything was laid out to make sure the parts were clean and accounted for. Additionally, they were working on prototype viton seals for the transmission. The next update will have details on the cooling system.

Raza gets banned there, buys a vendor card, and all is well in "M5Bored" forum. Just line up, pay Gustave, and viola!. This site, BimmerBoost is freeking awesome!
        Gustav needs the forum to survive (it his livelihood) and I don't. M5bored is a good way to put it.

        Small update guys, seals should be arriving late next week.

        Once the seals arrive, it is two to three days to button the transmission back up and it is done. Click here to enlarge

        I'll have a smile on my face once the car is back with you guys and a big blower is on top, tuned, and ready to go.

        I am so damn sick of waiting around. As soon as it is done I'm going hunting.

        My Trans that I sent over to SSP is already on the way back, As soon as its installed i'll do a review for the evo x trans upgrade package.

        Also SSP will come to Bahrain some time in the next few months and THEN I'll get you guys some wicked pics of work they do.

        All I know is I have kept track of all the $#@! talkers while my car has been down. Looking forward to seeing how tough people talk when it's ready to go...

        You have an "automatic"...I dont' see how it's going to be good for anything other than getting groceries. We can start a club.

        I think the car may find its way to Germany, so yes, I intend to.

        But if it was an automatic why would I need a non-auto specialist to build the trans?

        No problem, you can still be in my paddle shifter club. We will design custom cargo nets for grocery bags.

        That works. We can also relax in the back seat and sip on wine coolers while women drive us around since that is who the cars are being built for anyway.

        I've updated at every stage so not sure what you mean?

        But yes, saw that pic in the Everest thread and it's funny.
