    When the M3 shifted it was like the turbo went to warp speed.

    I am curious what just DCT would do to that result (at the end - it's destroyed, but the first 500 meters?)

    That M3 needed some serious mods! What do you "lostmarine" have done to your M3 now that your 335i is gone? How much slower is your M3 compared to your RB 335i?

    Yeah, that's kinda what I said. I meant the first 1000ft or so. It looked close for the first 2 gears in the run, no?

    Work out a deal to get a tune with a vendor for exposure so even if you get SC'd you can enjoy a tuned car in the mean time. I know a couple vendors who would be willing to do this in return for you to dyno the car and post your experience. Or at least with a very large discount.

    Look out side the box of typical vendors for the platform.

    I already know whom you speak of. I WANT to do it, but with the timeframe I have and current weather out here, its not appealing *to me* as I cant use the car to full potential, and byt he time weather is good enough to enjoy it, ill be looking at FI..

    I dunno, maybe I will just to offer some info for the masses

    Not to the degree you have done it (and I have no desire to) but I do things for the benefit of the community.

    steve i got the pulleys and intake for you just give me a call and let me know when you want to grab them. Are you doing the 575 kit? Ill be posting a full review real soon, but as a teaser I ran 6.9 60-130 (johnc63amg showed me where the 2% decline is around here its perfect spot for runs) starting in 3rd on street trim full weight, and pulled on my buddys z06 with a full exhaust (got videos of both real soon)...heres a clip of the speedo of a 60-130:



    let me know man!! so far im very impressed with this ESS kit given all the $#@! alot of people have spoke how it "underperforms" lol

    No but I raced a catless xpipe + tune c63 with more power than him and was bus length ahead from a third gear roll through part of 4th...not a good matchup at all.

    EDIT: Got the videos in HD so the speedo is visible:
    6.9 second run on 2% decline:


    7.4 second run on significant incline (first attempt ever with the new set-up, getting used to the power):



    will get the graphs later...mid 6 def attainable with race gas, drag setup (slicks rear, lightweight wheels all around), and starting in 2nd
