Best of luck Finnvette, Im glad SOMEONE on this forum took the torch from me and ran with it.

A dyno would be nice, but i think you are going to know the success as soon as you drive around the block.

Here's two links to realOEM.com

Please see also JD's post #33 in this thread.
Well this is causing a quandry. Maybe just maybe, the transmission in the 325 is made in France for cost reasons, but it's still the ZF model? I almost swear on my grandmothers grave the window stick of the 325 E90 says country of origin for the A/T is France.

If all goes well, this will be one of the most significant mods. Aside from a few peripheral items, e.g., brakes, exhaust valve, cosmetic parts, this practically would convert a 325i into a 330i.

I hate to sound negative, but I saw these guys at AutoCrave, and didn't feel like introducing myself, because of this type of nonsense.

Wow, that would be a nice road trip! Worth of two days of driving.

Btw, do you have U.S. spec 3.0L engines in Australia ?

I just wrote them an email where I gave them 1 more day to come up with a solid plan how / when I'm going to get my ECU back. If I don't hear anything back or their explanation is no good, I will just order a new ECU from JD and RAISE THE HELL!

Sometime they do. They will pick up my number and promise to call back, but that seldom happens. However they did call me on Monday and promised that I will get the ECU back on Wednesday, which was two days a go. :mad:
