So are you actually losing oil? Put another way, are you having to add oil to get back to square one after disabling the MHD toggle?

It pulls out timing off-throttle to add heat on the exhaust side (hence the combustion outside of the cylinder). But that's exactly how OEs do it - this isn't some janky logic that Jake rigged...

The OE implementation is the exact same as what MHD is doing. 'All' MHD is doing is replicating that feature for non 'is' N54s. It's the exact same concept as any of the OEs doing this 'burble'...A...

I *really* like them. I've run a lot of tires on this car - PSS, S04 Pole Position, R888, S Drives (yuck), and now 71Rs. They've been excellent so far and if I wanted to, i'd feel OK daily driving...

25PSI through the 3586 is good for 620-640ish WHP let's call it; 3rd gear was very un cool. Car didn't want to hook under about a 60-70 roll. 2nd gear would blow the tires off once it loaded the...

I'll take one! I need to replace the valve cover (it's getting up there in miles) so may as well tackle this all at once.

Best thing to do just paypal you? Thanks as always

If it's TS i'd recommend 1.0 or 1.15. Just a matter of your preference in tradeoff between top end vs. spool.

Buddy of mine picked up an N54 E90 in late 2007 (i'm a bit fuzzy on exact timeline). Shortly after, he installed a 'JB3' which sounded very exotic and confusing to me at the time.

The chief issue with the dual clutch swap is cost, not complexity. Obviously it isn't 'easy' but the wiring isn't too awful and the hard parts fit in without too much trouble.

Not cheap though.

Cheap! Relatively speaking.

Finding a decent condition donor 6AT is not going to cost you $4-5K or anything like that. Unsure on what labor would be like but I can't imagine too gruesome.
