i keep forgetting the auto 328, 323, 325 have a 3.46, one less mod you have to do now:)

That's insane!! Great Job! I'd eventually want to swap to a six-speed or and SMG maybe, getting tired of the auto.. but besides, Great write up! :thumbsup:

Well done. Just one comment for others - You dont need to buy the special SAC tool, it can be done DIY - see my thead here: https://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=629140

wat3rbug 03-24-2009 11:41 AM

Great write up:woot:

Even the clutch section cleared things up for me with the SAC deal.:thumbup:

See, that's a great DIY as well but I think that should only be used if you want to re-use your existing pressure plate. The SAC alignment tool only costs $17 from pelican parts and it's so easy to use vs making your own tool that costs more... i.e in your DIY, buying 3 jaw pullers for $30

Where is DME connection at A60004 pin 23\
