    Yeah, level 10 told me they need to see first my transmission and from that they will know exactly what needs to be done.... I specified also the use i do which is street, track and 30 mph rolls starts.
    I was in a stage 3 at today and noticed very clearly how bad mine is....

    yea, if you dont plan on tracking, id say tell them no dragstrop launches and just want stronger and faster shifting. im sure you'll get the same parts as mine, just stock stall

    Does the X5 not use the same transmission as the 335ix? And aren't the X5 35's N55? I do see that the N54 was hooked up to the F01 740i. Not sure if the transmission is different though.

    whoops- typo my bad. X6!

    X5 only came with N55.

    but NG6 engines in general all look the same when you see a transmission like that... so that could have come out of a 3.0 N52 as well.

    Me either. Repost!
    Now someone else has to chime in, but I think these original level 10 transmissions really needed custom TCU software to work properly. Now that we have the Alpina tune might these upgraded trans. fair better?

    Also if your gonna push big numbers its better to use a flash based tune. Using a flash based tune allows the TCU to see the higher load numbers from the ECU and be better equipped to handle the shift. DCT guys saw a big improvement when they ditched the piggyback (or at least ran a backend flash) These trans. do read engine parameters over CAN to help determine how they're gonna shift and don't see the true picture with piggybacks.

    P.S. not that I don't love JB4. JB4 is great for a basic bolt on setup. But IMO if you can take advantage of the comprehensive integration BMW designed into these cars then why wouldn't you. (Now we can with BBflash)
