Yeah, you know the deal, hot weather cog lights up but goes off once it cools off. Or when you turn the key to the start position and it takes a while for the starter to engage. Any of that sound familiar to any of you SMG owners. My AutoEnginuity was pretty useless other than to give me the codes. Sure I tried to bleed it using the steps I found of this and other forums but imo 6 – 90’s engagements of the gears does not equal the 30-45mins bleed cycle my GT1 performs. I was able to watch the pressure build after 30-40 seconds of the key being turned on showing me the accumulator was not holding pressure also causing my delay with the starter.

Anyway picked up my new pump over the weekend from Shawn over at Irvine BMW and threw it in the next day – wow what a difference. It feels like a completely different car, shifts are crisp and clean with no hesitation on downshifts. And it starts soon as I turn the key without delay.

Nice, did you get a good price on the pump?
Yes, he matched Tischer - $2027.70 and I also replaced the intake clamps since I reused them when I did the starter.

Thats pretty good considering what I've read thrown around. Good to hear you did it yourself! If and when mine goes, I may have to look into to doing mine myself as well.

FYI: any of you local guys need to hook up your car to the GT1 to check it out for free just hit me up before to arrange a time. I'm available most days as I work out of my house.
