What gearbox you using in the e36 with n55? I was seriously tempted by this engine choice and still am! Or is it a case of just getting a prop made to suit

Apparently these guys do a standalone DCT controller.

I've been chatting with this guy and he seems legit. It does seem like its going to be a nightmare to map the gear changes though as basically every engine load needs to be pre determined for every gear at every rpm to make it change smoothly....

interesting.

Side thought, surely it cant be that sensitive otherwise the guys that charge the e9x dct would have never ending issues? unlesi ts a specific issue wih this conversion?

I think the issue is that the ECU this guy is using is pretty basic and uses an alpha n style of tune (pre determined parameters) unlike the standard BMW ecu which is very intuitive but apparently unhackable so far....

You can buy a system with a Syvec S6Plus ecu which is way more user friendly but the whole conversion adds up very quickly....

Whole car, I sat down and worked out what I was about to spend on this conversion and decided I could have nearly 2 years motoring right now in a new m2 competition, so decided to go that route as I'm rushed off my feet at work anyways so kinda makes sense.

Why would this n55 swap be any different to any other engine swap? i dont know much about the engines even thugh the mrs has a m135i, but surely if you got a manual you could run it on standalone managment and make the wiring loom to suit.

The engines are ridiculously pokey in a 1 series i think it would be a great engine swap option for the E36. someone must have done it somewhere and have some info if it fits etc.
