I am anxiously awaiting dyno results and had to go look at the log again. The turbo is holding 18psi to 6500, very nice! That is actually target boost, so it may hold even more. I have a feeling one of these may be on my car in the near future!
Probably will hold more no problem, it will just be a matter of what's reliable/durable up top. Small housing so I'm sure backpressure is creeping up pretty good at even 18psi "
Nice! So you're saying you cant tell if it made the shifts feel any better? But its definitely not worse than the oem unit? Why do you like them then? are they cheaper?
I like em cause they are cheap, easy to replace, beefier with no downsides. My car still has low mileage so the originals were still in good shape and I did the M3's before switching to E85 blend so I don't know if it helped with shifting. "
F10 M5 DCT has the same clutch pack as the 335i or m3 DCT (source: realoem) and has the same oil pump (source: realoem). In my opinion not the clutches and the oil pump are the weakest part of the story if M5 DCT can handle 560HP and 680NM. "
Not sure what is going be treated differently?People in general just being excited about the engine because it is an M car?
This is a TT DI I6 with a DCT, an engine and tranny that alot of 3 series owners have experience before. Outside of the chassis, This engine and tranny isnt anything amazingly new and exciting by a long shot.
I think this was a mistake BMW made with this car, cuz otherwise its so GREAT! IDC what anyone says, HP numbers matter and to have an M3 with 424hp, a few more then previous gen, sounding worse while WOT, and having less HP then BMW 5 series family sedan, its just really wrong. Have 335is coupe running around with the same basic layout making as much or more power with just a tune.
My take on it anyways, Next Gen C63 with the V8 TT engine will be a monster of an engine.
You are still talking in theory and in "coulda, shoulda, woulda" land.
When you have some seat time in the car - feel free to crucify it. Until then, you are merely spinning conjecture relating a base model 3-series release that will cost less than half of the new M3. "
