" Wow, great build man, I just wish I had the money to do all that to my car.

So you preferred the Cobb AP to the JB4? I just JB4'd my N54 and had a hard time deciding if I wanted to go with the Cobb AP or with the JB4. Went with the JB4 because the Cobb was about double the price in the end and everyone seems to swear by the JB4.

Have the Cobb AP on my RX8 but of course they don't come with a lot of tuning capabilities stock so it doesn't make a whole lot noticeable of a difference. "

As they say, the only way to ultimate success in business is to throw away empathy, morality, and family.
BMW saying they want to basically build your car cheaper so they make more money is definitely not something a customer wants to hear. I've been loving all that theyre doing with the 2 and 4 series, don't start to take steps backwards! "

99% sure from talking with Bobby, and others that the car is stock motor and VAC Stage 3 head, but could easily be wrong. @radar1 can you confirm that for me? "

" No our took hook mount will use the factory tow hook and be adjustable from left to right. Funny you mention that it is hard to tighten down the thumb screw. We made a socket to fit the thumb screw to fix that problem. They will be in today and I will post pictures later on this afternoon.

I have that one and it is a bit meh, it's too hard to screw the go pro tight enough to stop it flopping around.

I'm guessing the head is fine as I haven't had to do this again on the same cylinder, I would just make sure you replace them with NEW injectors or if you do end up swapping in used injectors make sure you replace both the ring seal and the decoupling element... or this will happen again. Good luck! "

" Couple of questions, what is this orange wired plug? From what I found on RealOEM its a heater? I'll be removing the rear intake tube, so can i just leave this unplugged or...?



Second, I'm gonna need new head studs. My head flanges are 3/8" thick so ill probably just need studs that are that much longer. Any suggestions? "

Also wanted to comment that after many hard street and track kms the only thing that has broken is the water pump, which happens pretty regularly on stock cars as well.
It happened while at the track, I was a bit concerned about getting the car towed from outside the racetrack (complete with stuck on bits of rubber and straight pipes) to the dealership. They fixed it under warranty no problem. The manager of the dealership had a 135i race car with 1M widebody so I ended up sitting in his office talking about what I should do to my car next haha.

Can you swing by Triggs Beach sometime and take a pic of the car and the beach in the background, I'm home-sick "

Got a bit of welding done on the head flanges, but have some hard-to-reach spots that will require some effort.

" I have been using MS1/MS2 for many years now with great success. A friend of mine in FL (Jordan) has had great success with MS1/2/3/3x on BMWs, but I am not sure about the newer series of engines. I am using this on my 2j E36. It is am amazing and ever evolving EMS that sometimes gets a bad rap from people trying to use it that don't know how to do so..

Sorry that I cannot be more help for your specific engine/chassis combo, but I have used it with great success for 8+ years on several other builds and would always recommend it. The guys at DIYAutotune (Matt) have always been a great help. "
