E60 M5 DCT Transmission Swap

Guys the time has officially to come to take my beast to another level. I was experiencing numerous problems with my SMG transmission and I didn't like the jerkiness. I am a huge fan of the E92 M3 DCT transmission because of how instant and quick the shifts are. Not to mention the less problem it causes; the DCT on those are solid reliable transmissions. BMW did a great job with the glorious NA V10 engine but did not perfect the automated transmission. I ordered the E92 M3 DCT transmission and flywheel yesterday and will start shipment next week. The shop who is going to make this amazing build is going to be Gintani. Gintani is well-known for their supercharger and twin-turbo kits they offer for M cars. At there facility, I saw an amazing build project which was a 2010 M6 with a twin-turbo kit pushing easily over 1000+ horsepower also equipped with their DCT transmission to handle perfect with the beast. My whole build is going to take roughly a month to complete and I can't wait till the parts come in! I will update you guys every time I have new updates on this build.

Have you seen that car run? That's an incredible achievement, it's hard to believe there are no videos of it anywhere.

Has Gintani already done a DCT conversion? I would hate to drop a lot of money for a pipe dream. There has to be an incredible amount of programming work done to get everything properly talking to each other. Good luck though.

Gintani has fully completed it on their company car which is the M6 and I will be the second or third person running the DCT from them. I can't wait for the final outcome, the car would run so much nicer and quicker with a better transmission.

That build is currently being completed at Gintani and is going to be shipped and installed to Russia.
