Holy cow, nicely done.

What are the ratios of the DCT and what rear axle ratio are you running?

1st 4.780
2nd 2.933
3rd 2.153
4th 1.678
5th 1.390
6th 1.203
7th 1.000
Final 3.72

Current final drive is too high, 3.15 would be optimal but hard to find. Just bought 3.31 which I am going to swap during winter if I dont do the Ford 9" swap.

Interesting. The direct top gear is a common BMW thing I guess. I think some of the older Getrag manual boxes in BMWs used to be the same way also.

3.08 gears are common in the Ford 8.8 axles IIRC so that might be an easy way to go.

Very impressive build, and beautiful work all around!
