    Thank you!

    Yes i've seen it, the price is not that bad, but it doesn't fit together with the ESS supercharger system that i have. At least that what it says on the HPF website.

    regards

    Time for a update.
    It's winter in Norway, and that means less driving time and more garrage time.
    ESS tuning used my car to make a new upgrade to my supercharger kit. This kit is called VT2-575, and is suppose to make 575 crank hp.
    Turned out to be make about 630hp instead. Here's a dyno chart and a picture from when it was strapped to the dyno.

    There's one thing i've really been missing on my car. That's a rear wing. The more i've thought about it, the more incomplete the car has looked to me. So now i've stepped up and ordered a "Elite wing" from Brooks Motorsport. The wing is suppose to ship within next week, and I must say i'm quite excited about this part. It's looks pretty much like the one in this picture.

    During last season I experienced some fuel starvation problems in right hand corners. Starting from about 1/4 of full tank. To be abel to save some weight by running less fuel, i've ordered a fuel starvation kit from Bimmerworld. What this kit does, is ad a second fuel pump that pumps fuel over to the part of the fuel tank that the original fuel pump sits. Hopefully this will work.

    I've also ordered this roof vent to help out with cabin temperatur.

    Well, that's about it. I might end up ordering a set of stiffer spring for my intrax suspension, but i've yet to decide.
    I'll post more pictures after the new parts has arrived.

    That is an absolutely great amount of power from a supercharged S54. Very, very nice!

    Okay. A little update.
    Got a sweet package from Intrax. New springs with the rate of 400lbs front and 200 lbs rear. Had 260lbs front and 130lbs rear before.
    Here's a picture.

    Also installed the fuel starvation kit from Bimmerworld. Didn't take any pictures during the install, but here's a picture of the top of the new fuel pump. What you see is the new line that goes to the original fuel pump. Sorry for the bad pic.

    Here's a picture of the new oil lines that goes to the oil cooler. Hopefully they will keep the flow better then the ones I had before.

    Got the roof scoop installed.

    The Brooks Elite wing arrived the other day. Must say I'm impressed with how it looks. I'm not sure if the boot lid will hold the force that it creates, so I think i'm going to reinforce it a bit before testing it on track.

    Detailed it today, and snapped a couple of pictures.

    The rear is a true coilover right? Even the new rates seem pretty light, couldn't imagine why they would even opt to use the previous rates. How much does the car weigh and what are your individual corner weights if you have them?

    Yes, the rear are true coilovers. The springs I had before was a Nürburgring setup. The Nordschleife is very bumpy, so you need soft springs.
    This year I'm not planning to run on Nürburgring, so I asked Intrax what spring rate to use on a not bumpy track, with my medium compound slicks tires and weight. (1420kg inc driver). They adviced me to those springs and I trust their opinion very much. I'm looking forward to this weekend to test how the car feels with the new power, new springs, new slicks and new wing.

    Installed a FIA approved fire extinguisher just behind the passanger seat.

    Click here to enlarge

    Changed the wire that goes to the main battery switch, also got a new battery switch sticker..
    Click here to enlarge
    Reinforced the trunk in a couple of places so i'm sure that it can cope with the forces the elite wing creates.

    And changed the diff oil.

    The extinguisher cost about 1000 Norwegian kroners. That's about 140 dollars.


    Got the new livery today. Here's a couple of pics.
    I'll be at the track tomorrow, so I'll get more pictures and videos then.
    Hope you like the new look..

    Thanks!

    Did some testing at a local track on Saturday. Was a bit unlucky with the weather, with rain/snow and just over 0 degrees. The car felt great though, and I was really happy with the way it performed. Here are some pics and a couple of videos.

    Great work! I've always been a fan of your car.

    You can get more HP out of the ESS kit... we've done a custom setup that put down 575 to the wheels. Click here to enlarge
