GS6-37DZ is generally said to hold up to 700Nm. Might be even more depending on the use. GS6-53DZ over 1000Nm. I've had around 950Nm with a 53DZ.

Good to know; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZF_S6-37_transmission claims it can only handle 370NM which is pretty close to T5 territory.

BMW 7 speed DCT. will hold 800 NM factory clutches. adapter plates available via domiworks, and for ease of electronics, use factory shifter and run the engine on maxxecu, it will control the DCT no questions asked. guibo and mounting the same as getrag 6 speed. recommended convert to drive by wire (easy) for downshifts.

looks like tremec is offering up a TKX. 5 speed manual synchro box, 600ftlb rated and RPM good up to 7500. Biggest plus is that it comes in smaller than the tko500/600 and has higher rev ranges than the old TKO.

I saw that, I am pretty interested. A slightly more compact, more easy shifting, tkx could be a really nice match for a redblock.

I'm just about to pull the trigger. My t5 is tired... I went through it, billet cluster support, bells, whistles, upgraded g-force main shaft, then ended up twisting the 1-2 selector spline far enough that I couldnt get back into first. Tore it apart, and the internal splines on the selector looked ok, but the external ones on the main shaft were twisted about 1/4 tooth. enough that the selector wouldnt slide over. I've filed it down so it works, but it aint gonna work for long.

Yes.

Dumb question.
Does the TKO have the same pattern as the T5?

what all is involved in the TKO adapter as far as bellhousing machining? just opening up the bore?

Unfortunately, the TKO/TKX has a wide pattern unlike the T5. I'm hoping to get one of these transmission within the next couple months. I just haven't figured out how to spec an HTOB for my application. The fork is a no go.
