    hi

    i have a 2004 bmw 330d m sport

    looking at getting a remap.. and obviously i am going to see a significant torque increase.

    just wondering what the limits of the standard clutch are

    and what is the gearbox rated to

    lb-ft wise...

    (also while in this area... is there a solution to upgrade the flywheel and clutch to conventional solid flywheel with uprated conventional sprung clutch set up? if so where and price?)


    its my daily drive so not after silly figures, just want a bit more oomph without significantly putting stress on standard driveline components..

    thanks

    I think there is a post somewhere where dailydoggy put up the maximum figures the different gearboxes could take and certain ones are already near the limits at the standard bhp and torque....Sure he will be along to let you know.

    Its the autos that dont take kindly to increased torque, they are pretty much at the max limit already. Never heard of a manual going pop yet. How many miles has yours got? If its fairly high it mike make the clutch slip under boost.

    Hi there. Sorry I havent had time to find the post relating to the clutch and gearbox specs, But I'm only based over in the other side of the water in Kent if you're after a remap. I do many of these and when I had my own e46 330D (204bhp AUTO model) I remapped it to around the 250bhp and 600Nm torque mark and owned it for around 18months and sold it with 112k and it was problem free! This same kind of discussion has been going on with the 35D engines which we can remap to 350BHP and 700Nm torque.
    Honestly the only real problem that you may have after a remap is possible clutch slip. I have only had one bmw customer come back to me saying he's clutch is slipping and that was after about 4months driving and he'd done over 10K I think.
    If you'd like to have a chat with me then give me a call on the number below.
