    Hello,

    I have a 2009 e90 320d lci - uk car,
    Im looking at tuning options but dont want to exceed the gearbox torque limitations.
    According to BMW TIS i have a ZF GA6HP19Z gearbox with q126 torque converter - max input tq=400nm
    According to the ZF website this gearbox was uprated to the GA6HP21 version - max input tq= 450nm

    I am still waiting on a reply from ZF to confirm what gearbox/TQ converter my car actually has.

    My main question is why do aftermarket remap companies tune cars to over the max input tq ratings supplied by the transmission manufacturer?
    For example they do a e90 320d with the 400nm limit gearbox to 440nm - surely this cant be safe for the gearbox, BMW performance tune only goes to 390nm.

    If anyone knows why, or what gearbox/tq converter i definately have please let me know

    Thanks

    Richard

    Auto gear boxes can cope with a lot more than what's on paper

    im sure they can, but for how long? , there are lots of posts about people using bluefins as a remap option on 320d autos, and then removing the tune as the gearbox didnt like it (440nm) and couldnt handle the extra tq. Also in terms of reliability , BMW performance tune add a larger intercooler,fan and tq converter(s126) for a tune that takes the car to 390nm tq.
    So is it worth the risk going with an aftermarket tune

    We have remapped many of these
    If you do a google search under bwchiptune review
    It's all down to how the company tunes the car
    There are torque limiter maps which car can be adjusted per gear
    The maps can be adjusted and limited to what suits you

    Your website dosnt work , clicked on BMW and it timed out.
    I understand you may do a variety of tunes, but why offer one that clearly exceeds manufacturers tolerances

    Yes I know it's not working
    We are getting a whole new Website built for 2013 thats why I said do a google search

    As for auto boxes if you adjust the tuned file for the torque in gears you can run more
    We have may cars which have been tested for the last 5 years or more years including my x5 where we have run loads more torque than normal that we would give to a customer
    With no problems

    Heres one on the dyno it's a 335d owned by Pdtuning which we made the tune file for them and they tested the car

    http://www.dyno-tuning.co.uk

    It's the blue 335d on the dyno which will go to the YouTube link

    This made well over 550ft or torque

    If you want a remap limited to 390nm on your car it's not a problem as we customise the map to the customer likes

    The x5 and 335d have different gearboxes designed to take much higher torque , it's good that it is possible to have a limited tune though.
    Due to the fact I still have warranty il be going BMW performance route

    Scotty, look at realoem.com, enter your car details and it will tell you exactly what box you have

    up date, I have now managed to get my hands on the performance exhaust, 600w fan and larger intercooler, does anyone know if the 600w fan Is plug and play with the original dme, or will it have to be coded?
