    What are the VT3 specs and who has it?

    Who is your shop?

    So you want something as close to a VT3 as possible without a built motor I take it?

    sticky my shop are simpson motorsport, proper proper race car specialists, whenever im their my car usually sits with gt2s and last time 3 f40 LM cars :-) These guys are ess's approved guys but luckily overhere in the UK simpson are seen as the best for bmw tuning.......

    as for the vt3...... i will run with thsi vt2 for a year... then next year im going to build out the motor and go for an inbetween as i track the car mostly, the balance must be present and i dont want to turn this into a straight line monster, as an end result i feel 550-570 crank would be PERFECT for this car... i have no problems building the motor and pushing some nice boost......

    sticky, ill post you the detailsas soon as i ge the car back next friday, the vt2 upgrade isnt really a hard thing to do so im guessing it'll be only gone for a few days :-) i just WISH these centri blowers would make boost Earlier in the rev range, so we can feel the tq benefits, one of the reasons i love a good twin screw setup.

    I agree, should only be a few days as it is a kit.

    Twin screw all the way if you want boost down low but unfortunately for the S54 due to the complications with spacing and the throttles bodies there is no option. The Centri's scream up top though where the motor likes to be...

    You will lose some response down low, just be prepared for it.

    The S65 kit is still going to be stock internal though.

    Fr8tdog is a great source!

    Reason I ask about the VT3 is I haven't really seen anything.

    massive update... after a few little issues i decided no-one will do a better job then me, it turned into a massive day of moving, cleaning and sorting my oil leak on the coil cooler line...

    ok s i finally finished.... ive literally just come in from HOPEFULLY sorting my little oil leak, turns out one of the o rings have got damaged...... if this hasnt sorted it!!! ill have another go!! lol anyhow i took loads of pics and did a mamoth clean up......
    after three . somthing years of ownership and no salt usage or winter usage for that matter i was pleased to see it looks brand spankers underneath....... i wont be able to tell if ive sorted the leak until my next proper drive sunday :-) anyway enjoy the pics.
    i must stress every single mod has been done with no and i mean no expense spared to keep the o.e look and feel, every single piece has been moved and moved again to get the oil look, im happy to say it made 500hp on normal pump fuel, with the high octane race gas i use this car make 515bhp all day long........ this car is insane..... lol........
    the front oil cooler and intercooler, oil cooler is about double the size of the stock unit

    the offending leaky part, i torqued this as tight as i dared, new orings installed, note ALL this i relocated from stock, looks perfect

    im a stickler for detail, i cut down some rubbed to make a buffer for the oilcooler in the extremes of braking acceration.

    i have dyno's just need to scan em up, car made 501hp crank on pump.... i ususally high octane 110 stuff with a mix and i see a god 10-15bhp more...... im guessing the car will make 515hp crank all day long....... number and graphs shortly, can do anything until i sort this pesky leak i got on the cooler oil line....... im really getting fed up now.... hopeful i sorted it by swapping out the orings, but these are a $#@! to get to fit properly so im guessing im going to hve to do abit of trial and error over the next few weeks :-)
