Great for towing too. Hardly have to slip the clutch to get it moving, even on an incline.

You know, you make a great point!

It takes the “large feel” (weight) of the X out of the clutch engagement from a dead stop. And it does really help on inclines, even when not towing.

I can grab the clutch at 1000 rpm’s easily, and get’er to 4 grand quick! Not bad for a vehicle that weighs over 2 ton. I’ve always felt, that the manual E53’s are geared perfectly.

Yes. The X5 requires a little bit of an adjustment to your shift cadence, but the reward is far better performance off the line than we have a right to expect from so little power pulling so much weight. It's tough to make that adjustment in a quick drive (and made worse by the low rev limit in 1st).

Here is a pretty neat calculator:

I've used it when I installed S52 in my E39 528iA and wanted to know ahead of time what would be the best diff ratio to work with ZF 5 sped tranny:

The PMC adapter looks to be about 35mm thick. What would be the best/easiest way to account for it?
