Big bump. Been hard at work on wiring now that the weather is decent. Posts updated.
Sorry dude just saw this, I used the 1m engine cooler for the DCT all I did is flushed it out as it does fit.
The 135 engine cooler is exactly the same.
The engine cooler I reused from the m3 by modifying the brackets no issues, 1m front bar works perfectly with the engine cooler.
holllllyyyyyy shit! Awesome!
Yes, those crash bars fit. I have been trying to snipe some one Ebay for the weight savings. https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1282179
as you can see the 1m or lci oil cooler is taller than the 135i.
its like the m3 but with proper 1 series brackets.
Interesting that they changed something like the trans cooler and lines for the LCI. Sometimes BMW makes me scratch my head. Yes, my 135 and M3 are 2012 and 2013 respectively so that makes sense why my lines wouldn't work with the 135 cooler. Oh well, I'll get the CSF cooler in there and it'll be better off for track use anyway.After doing a bit of reading my donor m3 was an 08 and lci's have a few differences like dct lines, different serpentine belts, alternators and so on.
Who knows what other differences there are.
Other things like rod bearings have been updated to the newer ones.
Just saw rbs been pulled out of a later model lci with 113k and they looked like new, he was changing his oil between 7.5 to 13k km or 12 months.
So if you change it regularly most likely there won't be any issues.
That's 3 cars I seen like that that had regular oil changes that didn't need changing, guess it come down to maintenance and it's not an Rb issue after all.
Thanks! It had been quite a bit of work. So many little things that pop up every step of the way. Getting it out on track May 15th and 16th, I can't friggen wait. The car was a hoot with the N55 so this should be a whole new ball game.
