    One of our Billet Stage 2 customers took his 135 to track and laid down a solid pass that will only get better with practice. 11.6 at 120MPH. Looking forward to you getting your 60 ft time down and dropping that ET! This car was tuned by PTF/Motiv using the Cobb AP. You can head over to the motiv site for more info. Sticky I tried to embed it, but couldn't get it to work.

    Great results here on a built motor supercharged E46 M3 which belongs to BimmerBoost member BMtroubleYOU. He got his S54 engine built by VAC Motorsports who dropped the compression to 11.0:1 (the OEM S54 is 11.5:1). He also added the VAC Motorsports Stage 1 ported cylinder head. Next up was a VF-Engineering VF570 kit which includes a Vortech V3si blower. As the motor is built he upped the boost to 14 psi along with 50/50 water methanol injection. The result is an impressive 633 wheel horsepower pull although there is a bit of a spike at the end. Regardless, there are multiple pulls over 600 wheel horsepower and this is one of the strongest supercharged E46 M3's in the world. Full details in the owner's own words below along with the dynographs. Gentlemen, After all these deployments and First Sergeant duties, I finally got to finish my project. For those that are in the M3 Forum, and followed my build seeing my M3 being build from the beginning, Well finally, here it is. The dyno sheet is also attached. I was at the Cars & Coffee meet in Austin this past Sunday with a group of BMW enthusiasts from the Killeen TX area. VAC Lower engine build 11:1 CR Stage 1 VAC head Vortech V3 Si trim 14 PSI Bimmerworld 3.5 Y pipe (half way to 3") Headers wrapped all the way to the 3" reducer (halfway of car) 3" resonator and El Diablo Exhaust AEM Water methanol controller, Labonte Motorsports Nozzles, Devils own 300 PSI pump 50/50 W/M, 7 nozzles, 1 precharger and 6 to the individual throttle bodies 3 seven inch fans, 1 to custom oil cooler and 2 behind the Frozen boost dual pass intercooler. wrapped all hoses with heat reflector tape , then header wrap.

    As most know, Fuel-It! has been working with Vargas Turbo Technologies and MOTIV Motorsports to develop a new product to meet your needs. Now that their products are about to start shipping we would like to officially announce the release of "THE HULK". (shown with optional return) This is no ordinary fueling solution for any ordinary car! Just like the monster lurking under your hood, this beast is just waiting for a chance to shed it's civil demeanor and show you what its capable of. With "THE HULK" installed and restrained, you can resume your normal daily activities. While commuting this dual stage pump's primary is controlled by the DME and the secondary lies dormant. However, the moment you mash the throttle, it's true colors show themselves and the secondary comes to life releasing "THE HULK" within and leaving everyone green with envy. With up to four times the flows of the stock low pressure fuel pump, this assembly can handle whatever you can throw at it.....and then some! A few specs and particulars... Primary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: PWM via the DME E85 certified: Yes Flow: 1.0GPM @ 13.5V Secondary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: User defined E85 certified: Yes Flow: ​2.1GPM @ 13.5V Installation... Stage 3 is installed just like the stock LPFP and the electrical and plumbing connection points are all stock. The primary runs off the stock electrical system and there are no modifications made. The secondary requires the installation of an additional wiring harness. We will be providing the wiring, relay, and fuse assemblies for this installation. It will be up to the user as to how they trigger the secondary. Those running JB4 will be able to utilize the "nitrous trigger". Those running port injection may choose to use their secondary PI controller to trigger the secondary. For those running dual HPFPs or some other configuration, you may choose the optional Hobb's switch to control the secondary via boost. Options... FPR: To assist those customers that will be running an external Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR), we will offer an optional return line connection point and a stock FPR block off kit. The location of the return has been optimized to flow back in to the bucket to be recycled under high demand and is a simple quick release fitting. Hobb's switch: As mentioned we will also have the option to purchase a normally open Hobb's boost controlled switch to control the secondary. You can view these options on our website and we are taking pre-orders that will begin shipping Nov. 3rd. Supply at this time for both domestic and international customers is limited due to the availability of core assemblies. Consequently those orders will ship in the order in which they were received. We appreciate your patience while we build up those inventories and work to meet demand. http://www.fuel-it.biz/e-series-stage-3-lpfp-upgrade-options/

    Hello, This is one of my first threads over here at BimmerBoost. I had been visiting e90post but I have been frequenting this forum more and more. I hope you all find this of value. I would like to post my review of the Markert Motor Works solution for a proper clutch type limited slip differential for the E9X cars and E8X 135 cars. I have previously driven many applications outfitted with the other gear type differentials and I was never close to satisfied. It just didnt feel like the earlier BMWs I know and love. Afterall, it was the E30s and E36s that got me into this rodeo. I was thinking, why cant my e90 have a similar feel? I thought it was because it was a turbo car, and that I needed a V10 to solve my woes. The lock up was never smooth coming out of corners or a nice slip angle, and they were always seemingly very noisy compared to a proper clutch type diff. Boy was I wrong about turbo vs NA! Friday came around and I knew I would be having my new differential assembly installed that evening. I was very excited. Low and behold, I had a friend drop by with an identical car to mine (2010 LCI sedan, alpine on black 6 speed). He has a wavetrac in his car so I drove it so that I would have a comparison. After the test drive, and I mean test drive ;) I brought the car back and I still was not that thrilled. It was making me nervous about my car and how it would feel after the diff swap. Come 6 o'clock, I get my car back with the new differential installed. I pulled out of the parking lot, and I immediately screamed "I love my car again!!!" (while completely sideways coming out of it smoothly and precisely as a professional driver). I immediately thought, "now no longer need the S85" (although the want is still there). I could not believe the transformation. It was incredible! :happyanim: I then began to call everyone I know with a later model BMW to tell them the news. This thing is BRILLIANT! You MUST get one! So far I have two other buddies get them (both members so I am sure they will chime in). One in a 335i and one in a 135i. Both FBO. Pics!: Install: Obligatory burnout: Lastly: Funny Meme a friend made due to my extreme happiness: But all shenanigans aside (even when not driving like a hoon) you can notice the traction control not having to work as hard. Launches from a stop are now much smoother and thus quicker out of the hole. Exiting corners is the biggest plus, since the lock up is progressive versus On/Off, it is extremely smooth. No more of that craziness coming out of turns (which in my opinion was extremely dangerous). Link to their site: http://www.markertmotorworks.com/#!e9x-e8x-clutch-type-lsd/cjl5 Make sure you all check these things out! Talk to yall soon :thumsup:

    N54GASM started a thread 335XI 6MT bin file? in N54
    Hi guys, In trying to download the bms flash to accompany my JB4 G5 I recently installed. I have a KLINE version (build date 3/07) and uploading my stock bin file is practically impossible. I noticed there was a stock bin file that might work for my car, but the bin file is from a 'i' model. will this still work? or if anyone has a bin file I could use, it would be greatly appreciated.

    First drag/launch test on highway surface. The very first. Launch @ 11 psi and 4300 rpm Lambda is way off, lean. Have to add more methanol. Max engine speed 7500 rpm Boost pressure 11 psi Cold tires, no burn out, off the trailer Stock weight 3600 lbs + my team mate 280 lbs = 3880 lbs total weight 0- 80 km/h 2,3 seconds 0-100 km/h 3,3 seconds First vid is RWD only, spin spin...Like a real M3 Second video has the 3,3 s 0-100 km/h Time to raise boost, change transmission shift points, transmission shift speeds etc, put XM3 on diet, burn out to warm tires.... There is a big room for improvement. Today was the 1st ever 0-100 km/h test. Off the trailer 0-100 km/h time 3,3 seconds. Had two runs and both runs yield the same 3,3 seconds. No part broke, no drivetrain damage, so far solid. I would like to thank GOD for enabling me to build my dream Project, thank you my Lord, Elhamdullilah. Thank you my Lord

    Daimler is messing around with all its naming schemes and the latest genius idea someone in their office had was to bring back the Maybach moniker. You probably know that Maybach was officially killed off in 2013 and Mercedes announced it would do so back in 2011. So what is going on here? Mercedes is splitting the car division three ways. Mercedes-Benz will denote the standard cars. Mercedes-AMG will be used with the performance cars. Mercedes-Maybach will now denote their premium luxury segment. This certainly brings up a lot of questions such as what will the first Mercedes-Maybach car be? Is Mercedes still doing the Pullman long wheelbase S-Class or will that now be a Maybach model after Mercedes specifically stated they were getting away from the Maybach name? Who knows what they intend to do but Maybach, at least for now, appears to be back. Source

    There are major changes in store for the Porsche 911, that much is certain. However, a recent report from CAR stated that when the 991 generation receives its mid-cycle refresh all models will be turbocharged. CAR is taking some major liberties with the details and that is what they typically do. To begin with, CAR does not have an official source on this. They do not have a quote from anyone, a picture of a turbo engine, or anything to go along with this report other than a test mule they are guessing off. We do know that Porsche has tested a new turbocharged powerplant in the 991 Carrera / Carrera S body but the motor was a turbo four-cylinder and not the new turbo flat-6 being reported. Now, the new turbo boxer four-cylinder engine is expected to be a fully modular platform and essentially the 911 flat-six with two cylinders removed and boost added. CAR says Porsche will downsize the flat-6 engine to 2.9 liters from 3.4. That certainly is possible as the four-cylinder will not hit that displacement. Where things get very speculative is that CAR states the 911 Carrera will go up to 400 horsepower. Ok, fine, that is possible. They then state the Carrera S will get a turbo 3.8 liter and go to 530 horsepower. Well, um, is that not basically what the 911 Turbo is? The Carrera S has never swelled by over 100 horsepower with a refresh and this redundancy in the lineup with the Turbo does not make sense. A rear wheel drive turbo 911 is a GT2 isn't it? Porsche stated the level of power they are making creates traction issues for a turbo rear wheel drive 911 plus the Carrera S also is available as a 4S. CAR is just guessing wildly. The GT3 will remain naturally aspirated so all 911's will not be turbo. At least not yet but signs sure point toward this. We will have to wait and get concrete details from a source that can actually tell us what the source for information actually is. Source
