ZF 8HP70Z on Supercharged E46 330ci

Post by Paris »

The ZF 8HP70z Gearbox Project
After about 1.5 year with the DCT Project, I decided to switch platforms. DCT is out along with the transmission wiring and the controller. Reasons many but not part of this thread.

In its place, we’re installing a ZF 8HP70z automatic transmission from the F30 330d series. A very capable, 8-speed transmission, that can handle loads of torque, that will be paired with a different control unit this time from TurboLamik. I will emfasize on the electronics modifications on this thread as well, along with the mechanical bits.

For this conversion, I will be using the following:

1. Adapter plate to allow this gearbox to bolt to the M54 block, as the starter is lower/left side instead of upper/right (sort of mirrored)
2. Custom or OEM mix’n’match driveshaft
3. Custom or OEM gearbox crossmember
4. Turbolamik TCU with MS43 canbus integration & individual drive mode programs
5. N55 6-bolt Flexplate (my crankshaft is 6-bolt pattern so got to use this one)
6. N57N torque converter (comes with the gearbox thankfully)
7. F82 M4 Joystick
8. E46 M3 paddles
9. Custom IKE integrated OLED display for gearbox info
10. Milspec wiring with proper connectors
11. Genuine BMW oil pan with integrated oil filter
12. Setrab 25-row oil cooler
13. Davies, Craig 12″ cooler fan with Improved racing thermostat
14. Custom PCB board for 8HP Mechatronics modification
15. Oil seals & Gaskets

Will be adding pictures slowly as this forum needs the old method of embedding stuff. Full article is on my own website at: https://www.argyrides.eu/latest-project ... x-project/

There is no doubt that the best https://kltutors.net/ reviews are very positive. This is because the quality of teaching is very high and the results that students achieve are also very good. The prices charged by the tutors are also very reasonable. This is why many parents are willing to pay for the services of these tutors.
