LZ's "I am a moron, but this is going to be epic" thread

LZ's "I am a moron, but this is going to be epic" thread
The problem, N55 on low down torque sucks balls, very few suggestions that would wind up about 50k.

I love the car otherwise, and dont see why I should get rid of it...

SO I just bought this.

First I am going ot do the maths to find out what its going to cost the fix this one.

I will do the panel beating work myself, mostly... Chassis seams fine, electrics did get hurt,

So step 1, start motor in car, drive aroounf block.

If parts are afforable, fix the F01 and keep it.

If parts are not refereable transplannt N63B44 in the F10, and sell the N55.

its either a completly logical solution, or I am insane... what do you guys thing..

And now i will spend the rest of the night researching differances between f01 and f10.

I will be on the other side if anybody needs me Bluebiggrin

RE: LZ's I am a moron, but this is going ot be epic thread
SHall be delivered to dent doctor by tomorrow.

I am already neck deep in schematics...

Oh and this is not the only crazy project we have planned....

E60, //m5, in manual.. in rhd, in south africa... cant happen.... or will it (best clarkson voice)

Fsck i was so close to buying an M6 today...

This makes perfect financial sense though, i will get my money back if i rebuild or strip for spares.

Been offered 75k for motor alone.

I will be on the other side if anybody needs me Bluebiggrin

Does the e60 m5 only come in Smg here? Surely it's easy to convert like the e46 m3?

So you would need shift linkages, selector shaft, selector arm, gear leaver, knob, boot. And pedals. Then program the ecu.

I think this is the most crazy project LZ the m5 one I think you've over thought it.

Well for the manual conversion I did you remove the vehicle order which is the SMG or auto. Then you recode each module or the car. Then you reprogram the DME. So why wouldn't it be the same? You don't have to use a manuals dme...?

Does the e60 have a SMG II or SMG III?

But no RHD manual DME exist for the E60.

More then likely it will be just as you describe, but we shall wait and see.

4 month old baby, what's your excuse? Bluebiggrin

Yeah, I still have it here for you. We must just get you a Gateway without a Most port on, from around 2012. New they're around R5k, hopefully we can find a scrapper f01 or f10 of that vintage.

I also got me the lates Rheingold. Still need to figure this out as I mostly want it for schematics, still need to figure out how to access it

RE: LZ's I am a moron, but this is going ot be epic thread
There is a F07 at MD which is 2013 I think. and F07 = F01.

So we shall get to that...

My excuse is that I am being a spoilt brat the night before xmas, and Im trying to get my rheingold working on a stupid esys cable as I still dont have my ICOM..

I think i won that one...

Oh the schematics, pop round over the weekend and I shall give you a run down, or if your in Boksburg tomorrow, come witness the carnage

If I am right about this, and I am sure I am, you can use your esys cable, and you have ISTA-D.... just saved ya 20k there :0

I will be on the other side if anybody needs me Bluebiggrin

What time you in Boksburough? Just want to check timing as I have to be in Centurion for lunch

Yup, I checked that I have the option of using an Esys cable in Ista/d. Can't test it yet tho.
