Default Anyone Running a True Sequential Gearbox

Good Day All:

Has anyone installed a true sequential (Drenth, Quiafe, Holinger, etc.) gearbox? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I am not, but I have some experience calibrating a pneumatic automated sequential on a pro level racecar. Are you looking to run a manual sequential or set it up to be paddle shifted?

Looking at manual sequential. Not planning paddle shift.

No personal experience but I think Xtrac and Ricardo might also be possibilities, depending on budget/luck

Drenth is being run on several CM (E46 M3) cars that I know of. Epic sells a shift interface to allow flat upshifts and blip throttle downshifts. Drenth provides everything needed for the physical installation to the S54 (bellhousing, trans support).
