" In for axles, especially if I ever break my M3 ones.

Can I ask what weight your racing flywheels are? Also, will they be compatible with only your clutch kits or other clutch kits as well? Though if you can make a streetable 600+ft/lb clutch and flywheel kit for a reasonable price I'd definitely be more than interested.

I'm in the market for an upgraded clutch/flywheel since my stock clutch/flywheel is starting to give me issues now with RBs. My last dyno (before I started self custom tuning) at only 19psi showed 838nM (618ft/lb) atrw... "

I don't know what makes you think press test numbers are the be all end all. So what? Ok, you take a car on a strip. So? The press cars aren't ever prepped for a strip and they likely aren't even testing on a strip.

BMW changes the files to keep the CEL from coming on from repeated laps as stated along with other things. I mean I don't have a whole breakdown for you as I did not develop the software but obviously there are changes to parameters that affect things other than acceleration.

You seriously think there is just one map? We had reports that BMW was testing the cars with over 700 horsepower. Doubt it? What do you think they do? Just develop one file and that is the chosen one? "

I know it's being stated, but I'm saying I simply don't believe it. I think this is a story that was told by a few and got passed around as fact. Not trying to say you did that, but just in general that seems to be what everyone always says. Also, the people who had their car "press-tuned" by guys who supposedly were able to even do that mysteriously never get their cars dyno'd or run them at the strip. Always seemed funny to me. Like many say, I believe that the "press tune" was a leak of the comp package tune. That would make sense to me.

Its not really a big deal, I just like to stick to known facts. So far, I've never seen a BMW that didn't perform as well or better than BMW or the journalists said it would. Now Ferrari on the other hand.... "

" Congrats on this man! I know you've worked hard to get this kit out!

Any plans on doing a ceramic coating option?

You are running the 700hp turbo now? Or the 800? Any plans on swapping those 4 turbos around on the test car to show difference in spool/power on the different options? Just curious, being a top mount I know it's easier to do than us bottom mounters lol. "

@lulz_m3 Thanks for the advice, I got everything sorted out. Just needed to disable the codes.
FYI I was being sarcastic. "
