I never signed an NDA, just have other commitments in life and haven't made getting to a track a priority. I haven't been launching hard and I'm still just on pump gas and 50/50 meth, so while it's...

After this, let's get back on topic for LM and his project, anyone feel free to PM me for any other info.
The videos I have so far are here: https://www.youtube.com/user/idspeedskater and I will...

Yeah, I still need to get off my ass and get more than 91 crap gas and 50/50 meth in it. Getting the battery recall and valve cleaning done next week and then hoping to get it setup for e85. I...

Would be awesome to get some data here since it will be a dedicated project car. Mine is my DD, so I would prefer not to be the one leading the way on exploding TCs to find limits as I bump up to...

Awesome pics. I saw the blue Ferrari and whit lambo go by as i was sitting on the side of Hwy 9 with a flat... at least someone had a great day driving in the sun
We have to wait until after work and a drive to hear back? Maybe we should all just skip work and drive to pass the time until JP can report back

That would be awesome!! I hope I can make it down if it does happen as this one looked epic and I was sorry i couldn't make it down to try out the 335Xi single turbo with some real comparisons
03-06-2013, 02:47 PM
Definitely. A safe and long stretch of the legs would be awesome. Hope I can get to the next airport event that shows up

Unfortunately I am the best man in a wedding in Florida that weekend and I doubt the bride would reschedule on my account. If there are other events coming I'd love to get them on my schedule so I...

The letting off in 4th wasn't me, that was Melissa in her 335i. The Xi hasn't been to the strip yet as I've only had it back for about a week and a half now (2 and half weeks, but was out on...

Currently at 22psi, 91 CA pump gas, and meth. Keeping things conservative overall to start and allow time to get used to the new behavior of the car and test before upping it and seeing how transfer...

It put 519 to the wheels on the mustang dyno at FFTEC, but that's with 91 and meth. I don't have any data for any runs without meth, but as I work with Shiv and FFTEC to build out the platform I'll...

Yes, there is a lot left in the car. You have to look at this as a first run to set a baseline so i can see the evolution as we progress the platform. A few things to note:

Ill just leave this buried down here in this thread for now... There will be more coming as I get used to driving the car instead of a rental or my beater gas saver. Also need to get the no lift...

The Xi certainly is never getting a cage, so once I am sure I can manage a pass and get a trip to the track worked into my schedule I'll have to claim ignorance and that I'm just trying out new...

You guys are fun...
I fly back tomorrow and hope to get some preliminary runs and testing in this week and next weekend to start providing data on the Xi. Will I get to a track? Highly doubtful...

It will definitely be daily driven, and hopefully once suspension and a few other minor supporting mods are added (intake, maybe DD-supported weight reduction, etc) it will be consistent 10s, but we...

Agreed that it's a high priority, just need to start the negotiations or be prepared to sleep in the rain for years to come. I'm hoping to have it done within a month or two when travel schedules...
02-20-2013, 08:31 AM
Well that degraded quickly...
Anyway, I'll try to provide as much information on how the Xi handles the single once I get back next wek. 0-60 times (may be somewhat driver impaired as I get used...

Yes, a full install thread will be coming soon, but here's the current update:
I was basically stock save for a procede before starting this, so there was a lot to do, but everything is in...

Thanks, glad to be expanding my work-avoidance opportunities
01-23-2013, 11:44 AM
We will soon find out... My '07 e90 xi (MT) is with fftec now getting the kit. Should have more information + results in the coming weeks.
