Honestly, I was on my one hour lunch break from work and dropped off and left security deposit and left to get back to work immediately.

Doesnt it make you uneasy not seeing one working when people have wanted this for years!! Apparently there is 3 done already but no one knows about it??? I doubt anyone could keep there lips sealed that much
Gintani would have a backlog of years for dct conversions if that was the case
Its the single best mod that people would froth at the lips for!!!

I wish you luck

I have no issue or concern with Gintani about the build. These guys are great at what they do, I personally haven't driven a DCT EXX M5/M6 but know that these guys are the only one who can do what they say they can build. Until now their supercharger holds records and now they are slowly but surely finishing up with the twin-turbo kit that's going to be pushing over 1200hp easy. I haven't seen that type of build from any other company for the M5/M6. We are all impatient to see the final project completed! As far as my transmission goes; I can't wait to get it back and enjoy that smooth and instant shifts on the DCT without having the issues that SMG has.

Out of interest - any written commitment on what they will do? Care to share? Not looking to see $$$ or the like.

I know Gitani is a reputable company and can do some pretty awesome stuff.

What is the difference in gear ratios between the DTC and SMG?

I'd also like to hear more about Gitani S85 supercharger records that they hold.
