One of the things I noticed on realoem is that the bell housing appears to be integrated with the transmission case on the GS6-45. But ZF evidently has no issue with it taking more torque if the 1M uses it.

But I keep remembering a friend who had a '69 Mustang with an asthmatic 351 Windsor motor and he replaced that with a 429 - but didn't upgrade the remainder of the drivetrain. It'd run like 'stink' for a day or two and then he'd have to repair something. ; -)

Just the cost of the fuel injectors alone - I had someone from BMW NA explain that solenoid direct injectors were three times the cost of the port injectors and the piezo direct injectors were three times the cost of the solenoid direct injectors. IIRC the N54 used piezo injectors and the N55 uses an updated solenoid injector.

If anyone is having trouble going to sleep, read this:

And Continental has this info on direct injection:

Oh man, then there's this from Bosch:

Its like with the automatic ZF trans...
ZF builds the transmissions for BMW. BMW says the fluid is Lifetime fill - yet ZF says the fluid should be changed every 80K kms.

I think BMW does a lot of stuff like this... bc in the end... BMW would be happy when we all buy a new car every few years... just like cell phones/handys/mobiles!

The DCT in my car is made by Getrag, or so my scanner says!

Since we're talking about ZF autos, thought you guys might be interested in something I heard on another forum.

There may be an adapter available for the new ZF 8 spd auto in the somewhat near future for the N54. One is being fit I think to a 335i now.
