    • Dodson set to release 800+ lb-ft of torque capable BMW DCT (dual clutch transmission) upgrades

      Dodson is tackling the BMW DCT market and is set to release a bevy of upgrade parts for the BMW DCT transmission including clutch pack shims, two different type of clutch kits, frictions plates, and associated hardware. These upgrades will be available for every BMW with the DCT transmission. Yes, that means the E9X M3 and E9X 335 models. It also means the new F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6 models.

      These models all use a variant of a Getrag DCT box. The physical proportions are the same but Getrag obviously has modified the unit over the years for greater torque capability going from the naturally aspirated E9X M3 to the V8 twin turbo F10 M5. These Dodson parts will have even greater capability with two clutch sets currently listed one for 800 lb-ft of torque and the second for over 800 lb-ft.

      BimmerBoost will be testing out some of these Dodson parts in the BimmerBoost.com M3. Will Dodson succeed where SSP Performance failed? We will find out shortly but considering Dodson's stellar reputation it certainly looks like it.

      Pricing has yet to be announced but as soon as the parts are officially available BimmerBoost will of course bring you the details.

        Software will be required I think but Dodson is providing the hardware. Software solutions are up to the buyer.

        I don't know for sure but the basic kit should be compatible with the OEM software. Further details will have to come from Dodson.

        Hell yesClick here to enlarge. If this works...the game just changed. A TT dct e92 m3 would just be insane! Wow....imagine launching a dct car with this upgrade? Click here to enlarge

        I think the software isn't a issue from the things I've heard...

        Driving for 50k km with FBO & RB's, not a single issue with the DCT... But would be nice as a replacement kit. DCT in sport mode does quite a good job....

        This is great news! ST setup currently being installed on my 335i DCT Euro spec, was lucky to have managed to recently secure a used DCT box to run this when it is being sold.

        If any of you are salivating at the thought of a beastly 335is w/ DCT, you can always buy mine!

        I wouldn't touch an N54 DCT that had a piggyback on it.

        Around 540whp..... I'm still running a Fabspeed xpipe with high flow cats. Once I pass emissions this month I'm going to go with evolve's setup and get rid of the cats and pick up some more powerClick here to enlarge
