• DCT Build Part VIII - Putting it back together

      As of right now, the transmission is completed and the cooling system is in the process of being completed. Where we left off was the car being taken to SSP for the build of the cooling system. To make this all make sense we will not skip ahead, instead showing you each step. Here SSP is getting ready to put it together with the new clutch discs. They laid out all the parts and used 3d scanning equipment to record them to aid in the production of the parts. Everything was laid out to make sure the parts were clean and accounted for. Additionally, they were working on prototype viton seals for the transmission. The next update will have details on the cooling system.

        They just need to finish the cooling system and they will bring the car back to Gintani who should be in the process of completing my low compression built motor.

        Well the car should be brought back by SSP in the next couple weeks and the motor should be wrapped up by then. Then the challenge is the new blower Click here to enlarge Not sure how much longer, a few months.

        Love the technology that goes into that transmission, nothing like solid german engineering.

        It will be worth it in the end, I'm not satisfied with just putting on a blower and calling it a day, that's easy. I like to be different and I like to be the best.

        This has been like what? Almost a year without your M3? I bet it feels like ten years. Can't wait to see the final outcome. GL.
