    So what about the road racing guys like me. I just want to make sure nothing overheats or breaks down, also for the purpose of weight balance and more room in the car ill be getting a sedan.

    Just wondering what I should upgrade or look into.

    Well if road racing is the primary goal the manual is likely the way to go.

    That's understandable but if my only option is a AT with paddles. But I guess its either that or get lucky and find a sedan with the MT, or spend more for a 1010 with DCT. Lol.

    Well the DCT is completely different, I would talk to one of the vendors capable of doing this like Camber-Toe although not sure if Matt is on vacation yet or not.

    For a step N54? Honestly, no. I can point you in the right direction for the DCT but I am not experienced enough with the steps and the fluids available to make a suggestion. Best I can do is put you in touch with the right person, Matt.

    -ZF 6-speed Automatic Transmission Fluid, (Shell M-1375.4) OEM BMW around 20 bucks liter . you need 6.5 ltr but best to buy 8.

    Cheaper version:
    -Mercon SP Fluid Part No. XT-6QSP

    You also need this:
    24-34-7-588-725 sealing sleeve
    24-11-7-571-235 gasket, oil pan

    Follow BMW instruction in how to change oil:

    - With warm AT transmission remove oil
    - Remove oil pan, more oil will drop
    - Wait till ALL oil has come out and reinstall oilpan with new gasket.
    - Engine off - Fill in oil till it reaches the oil cap / screw and start coming out. this is done by gravity.
    - Start the engine and go through ALL gears
    - Put in N and check the level with engine on
    - Close the oil refill cap and warm up the oil till 60C which is around the temp you get after 2 miles of driving on the road
    - recheck the level

    You know what's funny, I am driving much more conservatively with the 6AT than I do with the old N54 6MT. D is FAR too conservative in downshifts on its own, and I find myself correcting the transmission with the paddle shifters. DS refuses to go into 6th gear after sustained cruise, which is plain silly IMO.

    I guess this is merely a limitation of an automatic vs manual, but man when I stomp on that gas pedal it surely moves! Click here to enlarge

    I had some slippage in the 500wtq range, but it has held up well so far at 430wtq. So somewhere between there is the reliable limit IMHO. Glad you guys are collecting options.

I think there needs to be better shifting capability via a torque converter or valve body upgrade; the gearset seems to be able to handle a lot of torque as does the shaft.

    i triend contacting a few local and other tranny shops about possible upgrades on the convertor and valvebody, but none even had the decency to respond

    this is to include Factory tech, LFP, (both are known in the ford lightning camps) and precision industries.

    luckily i have no real need for upgrades, but i didnt like blowing the trans in my lightning 2 weeks after i bought it and dont want to go through rebuildiing this expensive thing

    With the lightning you had a billion options for trans upgrades though.
