Also enrita's trans is calibrated to use redline.This info came to me through a conversation with level 10 this morn.
    He blew smoke up your butt. I've done a ton of research on our transmission fluids. As me any question you have.

    Great now you have me worried. If this were you transmission what would you use?I plan on getting fluid for change this weekend.Is there any truth to the fluids having more grip than another?Is there any other build options out there? I tried to research and thats all that comes up. Like i said before i used them on other platforms but this trannie is far more advanced.Just want a fluid that can handle the heat and last a reasonable amount of time.

    DCT? errr..you better stock up on pentosin FFL4, as that is OEM equilalent. Stealership is basically selling you the same thing, just relabbled. Now I'd also look into a larger tranny oil cooler, maybe one with a fan, since you are supercharged.

    Yes, any fluid on TE-ML 11B will suite your purposes. Either Castrol transmax z (only available in australia Click here to enlarge ) or Pentosin ATF 1, which I use. Both fluids are even TE-ML 17 approved. TE-ML 17 is for Voith transmissions, which are european mass tansit busses. These two fluids are approved for 5 year/60Kmile drain intervals for those busses! If they can handle that kind of torque, they can handle your 335I. As for who else fortifies our trannies, that, I don't know. Some day when I get RB's I'll go with level 10.

    No truth to the more grip crap. There just is varying thickness (viscosty) KV 40 deg, KV 100 deg, Viscosity index. Oem, has very low numbers, so it flows easier, and is slipprier for great fuel mileage. At the track, it will suck, cus it's not thick enough to protect. The fluids on TE ML 11B have higher viscosity, will protect at the track, will shift harder when the tranny is cold, and you will suffer very slight drop off in gas mileage.

    Please note though, that no fluid will protect you from damaging the tranny by drag racing. I've lost two trannies in my life to drag racing, so I know how hard that sport is to the transmission. It kindda sounds like your clutch packs are already burn't so upgraded fluids, may, or may not save you, at this point. Good Luck, and keep us posted.

    Well i decided to call stett performance who is going to install turbos and build me a oil and transmission cooler. They have a zf guy locally. So i am going to take it into them with codes and let him diagnose issue.They didnt seem to impressed with the level 10 upgrade package. He also said this could be as simple as a sensor. Particularly a speed sensor or a overheating issue.They claim this guy is a zf guru so we'll see next tues. or wed.They have seen this issue before and said that they have simply had to change a sensor that is going bad.
