    • Nizpro states they can upgrade the BMW E70 X5/X5M ZF 6HP26 transmission to handle double the torque

      The E70 BMW X5 models utilize the ZF HP26 6-speed automatic transmission. As you know, the X5 is all wheel drive and that puts more stress on the driveline especially with increased torque. X5 owners doing turbo upgrades have a solution courtesy of Nizpro that can greatly upgrade torque handling capability.


      You will notice the list of parts in the picture below. The total is not cheap at $5370 but considering the company is Australian one would hope that is in Australian dollars. BimmerBoost will get clarification on the pricing from Nizpro.


      The main thing to take away from this is that with the Nizpro upgrades if you do a turbo upgrade on the N63 or S63 V8 engines you will be able to increase torque without having to worry about the transmission cooperating.

      Also, Nizpro is developing upgrades for the ZF6HP21 transmission in E9X 335i's so they definitely are covering their BMW bases and expanding their BMW offering.

      Thank you to @m5james for the screenshot.

        I'm sure you can search their site like I did. I just found this while doing another Google search.
