    Remember, the reason the DCT has such a tall rear gear is because 7th gear is 1:1. The Auto's 6th is something like .67:1 so the 3.46 is pretty tall in 6th gear.

    RG,

    I saw somewhere that the bell housing (bolt pattern) is different between the S65 and the N54, so it would not be a direct fit anyway.

    This is something that I need to tackle. I thought that the stock "D" mode was perfect for how I drive, but wanted to protect the transmission with the increased power. Like many others, I got the...

    No, the Fuel pressure drop is real and stands alone. The electronic part of the system will try to compensate for the lower fuel pressure to keep the air/fuel ratio within spec. What the log shows...

    Pretty sure a leakdown will not reliably expose a bad valve guide seal, or even a worn valve guide. Pulling the turbo and inspecting for leakage might be a batter choice.
