    And I've seen KW for a lot less than 12k too... The point I was trying to make was that 12K is about right for the top of the line stuff.

    Big push. Got 26 hours in the garage yesterday and today. Got most of the fuel system plumbed yesterday, the transmission cooler mounted, the engine heater pipes I had modified with 12AN fittings installed with a temporary hose until I finish the heater, a host of bolts torqued down, etc. I had the fuel rail modified with 10AN stainless fittings and installed an outlet at the end of the rail so can run the regulator after the rail to ensure constant pressure through the rail. Today had the accountant helping again and we finished the exhaust and tacked up the intercooler inlet/supercharger out pipe which he took home to TIG. Plan for tmrw is to finish the plumbing and transfer the engine dash electronics from the loom to the car. I'm going to leave the body off for the time being while I wire it up. I'm super stoked with how the intercooler pipe turned out. Driver side exhaust outlet package, which completes the exhaust: Intercooler inlet tube: 20 Micron pre-pump filter and pump, there's a 120 micron filter at the inlet to the fuel rail. 10 AN fuel line, 8 AN return from the regulator (the regulator can be seen in upper right hand corner of the firewall). .

    Sorry I'm late but When you decide to upgrade your axles if you can rent/borrow a large air compressor and a good air hammer (I have a snap-on). spray some penetrating oil onto axle/hub use a rounded tip air hammer bit with the old axle nut partially threaded on to prevent mushrooming. Use safety glasses. You may have to lay into it with the air hammer for a few minutes I have done this dozens of times and it worked every time. Maybe a different story on cars that live in the snow. I know BMW makes a special on the car press $$$ for this job. Also double check your dif. for leaks after driving to make sure your axle seal didn't tear during the install.

    So the answer is no? A simple no would suffice. Terry at one time had an order for turbos from you correct? But your shining salesmanship and no non sense style came shining through and Terry said peace out.

    I went for a drive to get a few datalogs in and on my third log When shifting from 3rd to 4th dsc completely off and a/c off i noticed a lack of power so i let off thinking something was wrong. drove home ok with good power. I checked the datalog and found that after the shift with the accelerator fully depressed the throttle took 6/10's of a second to reach 76.7%. A few weeks ago I installed a cobb v3, a charge pipe with stock dv's and 7" intercooler on my 08 135 manual trans with 83,xxx miles. I am running 1+ sport with e21 fuel mixture using acn91. (I get numerous timing pulls with just straight acn91) I have done about 25 logs and this is the first time this has happened. I haven't tried to reproduce it yet. Valves and TB have been cleaned. Turbos, vac. hoses and spark plugs are new. Fuel injectors and coils are original. Does any one have any ideas as to why the dme decided to open the TB so slowly?? I am new to this forum and to modifying cars but I have many years of experience wrenching on bmw's so hopefully i will be able to contribute to the forum in the future. I will try to reproduce it with mean abs and req. abs added. Any input is appreciated. Can't post link to the datazap due to no rep points. How do I get rep points?

    Take a look at Moton Suspension. Same price as these.

    2010 N55 135i, Wagner IC, Wagner downpipe, AFE intake, Cobb AP. 90k miles. Recently, my DCT clutches started slipping, at first only when shifting 5>6, then in all gears from 3rd upwards. So I decided to get an SSP upgrade kit (their lowest rated one which should be fine for me since my car will not get any further mods). kit arrived within 2 weeks (overseas), the install was straightforward aside from taking the transmission out and putting it back in, which is not too difficult but time consuming. as for changing the clutch packs, this was surprisingly easy. no special tools needed, although the front oil seal installation tool is almost a must for around $25. SSP (kris) was very helpful with repeatedly asking if they could help with the install. changed the fluid and filters with the clutch install and overall the transmission feels completely different, even much smoother during regular and city driving (and of course no more slippage...). conclusion: well worth the money and the effort.

    The aem is more of a blank canvas. It's only as good as the time spent to develop it. The integration of reading raw sensor input rather than canbus is beyond me as far as what is better.
