    Vvti dct

    Hi guys, has anyone managed to get a DCT running on a VVTI? If so, is it reliable and what is the drive like?

    There's only 3 or 4 cars running the BMW DCT, not sure if any of them are VVTi

    There's no reason it wouldn't be. If the S6Plus has the required outputs left to drive the VVTi then there's no reason at all it wouldn't work
    If it doesn't have the required outputs, you can get the IO expansion board, or the S7i ECU.

    The VVTi and DCT aren't mutually exclusive. But, seeing as the works on the DCT is done by Whifibitz, you'd be best asking directly.

    Vvti wouldnt make any difference. It's like asking if a turbo affects the diff they arent connected.

    ECU will handle vvti and the DCT.

    I dont think the forum has died purely because no one answers you. Maybe no one knows. Or is interested.

    400+ members online. For a car that's 20 years old. I'd say it's a pretty active forum.

    It used to be a hell of a lot more active. I could barely keep up in the not-so-distant past!


    Anyway, notwithstanding the VVTI, what is the DCT like to drive?

    The DCT in the Supra is amazing, I am pushing around 700bhp and done over 20,000 miles since the conversion was done. You get all the I-drive settings which gives you 5 "auto" settings to suit your mood then 6 "manual" settings. The manual 6 mode is just insane. Perfect gear changes, down shifts, rev matching, zero lost of boost during gear changes and zero loss of power to the wheels. No upset to the chassis during gear changes. You can set rumble, pops, bangs during gear changes if you want. Definitely worth it

    I saw a video of the dct box on the dyno the other day and the shifts are amazing. Definitely worth looking at

    So you can make it sound like a modern fart can?

    Only kidding, who installed yours? And if you don't mind me asking, what was the damage? PM if more comfortable.
