    +1. I only see it working in the snow, but with the LSD routing power to the wheel with most traction, the e-diff and LSD are technically fighting eachother at that point. I could see disabling it...

    Bleed with a good pressure or vacuum bleeder. Depending on the milage and climate, look into replacing the trans oil with fresh fluid, or Redline MT if you are in a warm place. The E46 trans mounts...

    AMSOil is amazing stuff. Its the only stuff I run in my CBR600RR. If it weren't so pricey, I'd run it in the N54 without hesitation.

    There was a dude on e90post that did almost exactly what you're thinking, and put a small core behind the front grills. I think he claimed that it helped with slipping and whatnot but I wasn't...

    A lot of people compare the N54 upgrade hardware to aerospace design. What most people negate is that jet engines are subjected to rigorous periodic inspections to very tight criterion that the...

    Depends on the selected density of each, but then cost definately becomes a factor. Either way looks like a solidly designed unit; a better tradeoff to the motiv solid mounts.

    It's the evap valve. Put a wrench to your ear and near the firewall components and you can confirm. It's benign as long as there are no codes. A new valve will not gaurantee that it will not start...

    Seems like you really want out of the turbo BMW world. That being said, I'd still go into a M3/M4 if I could, as it seems Terry is working some real magic with those engines nowdays.

    This car's slave cylinder is more difficult than other cars, but it's really not so bad. I can do it in about 15 min using the following process:

    1) Overfill resevoir.

    If there was air in the lines, the clutch would engage closer to the top. Seems like a high/low setting issue.

    The best method I've found to bleed the clutch is with a vac bleeder. I also have a...

    I really hate it when companies refer to their components as "military spec". That being said, I've had no issues with my IS mount. I should have dimensioned it before installing it.

    The PCV can cause a plethora of issues on every single engine. A lot of people diminutize the importance of a good and healthy crankcase vent.
