Being I'm DCT the clutches can only hold up to 500wtq or close to that figure, 6MT's seem to be stronger in this dept.

I've been getting a lot
Of PM's in regards to cost so For those interested the build is costing 18-24k parts and labor , you can save some $$$ if you decide not to do the valve springs.

Pistons
Rods
Motor rebuild kit
Valve springs
Vt3 components
Fuel system
Labor
7rib pulley system

I think that's it .....

check to see if the F10-M5's dct is similar to e9x M3's dct. If they are just get the M5 clutches because then you'll be able to hold more power.

The DCT clutches hold fine at 667whp. But if the F10 clutch packs work, that could be a great option, currently there is nothing else.

We need a tuner to figure out more clamp pressure. SSP discs are only as good as the force clamping them. Did you have SSP? What was good/bad with those. What software do you have? Or do you feel now it is more surface area needed?

Congrats man - moving along swiftly! Really no other way to go for a high 600whp setup unless you want to risk over a year without the car. Will be interesting to see when a DCT upgrade is finally available.
