Let me make the list for the parts and yes, have to change the drive shaft, the drive shaft of manual gearbox is longer than the smg coz the manual gearbox is smaller

Don't forget you will need the corresponding MT flywheel, and you will need to add wiring/provisions for the trans fluid quality/temp sensors, and clutch switch which the DME will be looking for with the 6MT DME flash. I'd upgrade to the 2009/10 diff as well while you're at it. It's a good security at ~300$ or so.

Some other obvious, already mentioned items:

Pedals
Slave
Associated tubing for hydraulics
master reservior cut for fluid drop down to slave
instrument cluster software/coding
trans
clutch
driveshaft (Length difference)
CSB
necessary console trim/boots
Shift linkage (Might as well weight the rod while youre in there.)




DME SW:

7842647: Non US cars with bad fuel quality and a lower service interval on oil changes.
7842502: US SMG and Korean Cars. *
7842641: Non US cars with bad fuel quality.
7842645: Non US cars with some kind of CEL parameter change**
7842795: Japan's version.
7842643: Non US cars with bad fuel quality and a CEL Parameter change(see 7842645 but with bad fuel).
7842649: Non US cars with bad fuel quality and a CEL Parameter change(see 7842645 but with bad fuel) and the lower service interval.
7842639: Non US cars standard tune CO2***
7842504: US Non SMG cars
7842799: Targets The New Euro CO2 standards. This requires a new code file flash as well.



Thanks to M5B user "Ferris" who seems to have access to BMW's SWL system, or did at one time.

Why would one need to change the flywheel?

What is the difference in the 2009l10 diff?

Flywheels are completely different:



vs



Regarding the diff, I do not know exactly what changed, but I was told by an inside source that the MY09+ M5 diffs underwent a design change to increase robustness.

I love to see the smg guys talk about how fast the smg is next to the 6sp. How's this anyone near or from NY with a smg that wants to test that fact? I have a stock car except for the exhaust so you take off all your crap and we'll race deal ?

I believe it's driver not smg vs stick.
Anyone who wants to play pm me. I'll set it all up, and I will make sure it's all on video.

Thank u, Joe

This entire thread was about converting an SMG car to 6MT from a technical perspective for people tired of dealing with SMG problems. I'm not sure where your comment was aimed.
