Anyone email for details? Wonder if they just did a whole dump conversion or not?
Was that a power-brake burnout in the end? or just too much spin and no go?

I'm one of the guys that will answer to people's emails ;)
What do you mean with dump convericon? :)
Yes he is using the brake while shifting from 1st to 7th in the burnout.

I don't know what I was thinking when I said dump. Is that conversion just the addition of dct to an e30 engine and differential?

Wondering how much the conversion went into the DCT programming side.

Lets hear this baby full boost! Sounds amazing. Have you had any issues with setting up the shift controller?

Waiting on some new parts for the upgraded front drive shaft, then I'll go all out :) Don't want to risk breaking it as it is now :p
Some small issues, but nothing major.
Lots of fiddling with all the parameters though, not done yet with the fine tuning but it works!

WOW, how did you mount up the transfer case? did you have to make an adapter? I am doing some research into doing e92 DCT swap to work with x drive as well...keep them coming!

Yes, made an adapter and new mounts etc. Shorten rear drive shaft and extending the front drive shaft, making room in the tunnel and so on :)

I might be missing the obvious but if 4wd how did you do that power brake burnout?
Technically I can do those burnouts when disabling the TC lock, but the one in the video is my buddy's E28 dct :) It's me and him that's been working on the kit.
