    New "air filter" (cough cough...SC) installed. =) Wasn't as bad as I thought. Took me a few 3 days working 3-4 hours each day. Waiting to get my ecu back.

    Not surprised on your low compression numbers especially considering it's an 08 build , a lot of owners complained about having the need to frequently add oil , around every 2,500 to 3,500 miles you have to add a quart depending on your driving habit .
    My 08 needed a quart of oil at 600 miles , picked up the car with 8 miles on the clock I bugged out and they told me it was normal . After putting some miles on the car I noticed that every 2,300 to 3,200 miles I needed to add a quart which was a major pain in the ass !!
    Funny thing was once I went forced induction it burned less oil ( more heat prob expanded pistons ) .
    Now as for my 2011 M I went up to 1,200 service and it only burned 1/4 of a quart , I'm at 7,100 miles and I did my oil change at 6k and my oil level was calling for 3/4 of a quart burned which showed that BMW made some changes that they will never disclose ( discredit themselves ) with this being said I bet the 2011 will show higher compression then the 2008 but in your case I would say your fine with your results just as long as the numbers are with the % and are consistent .
    Looking forward to meeting with you Gixxer !

    Haven't noticed any oil issues, even when I took it down to NJMP for a 2 day hpde. But I did notice after my dyno the oil gauge dropped 1/4. Not sure if it was borderline to begin with. I really hate not have a proper dip stick.

    Looking forward to meeting you and Img both!

    Installed the ESS kit in my garage over the weekend.

    ESS, b/c I wanted to be able to install it myself. Although I think all kits have their pros and cons. If I were living on the west coast I would have gone with Gintani and if I were in Florida, definitely AA.

    And you didn't take any pics or document the install? Are you crazy? I would have put that up on the front page, it would have been amazing. Take it off and do it again.

    I have tons of pics. Just need to take one final pic once I start it up for the first time and make sure everything is running fine (keeping my fingers crossed) =)

    I'll create a new thread with pics and writeup of the install. ESS supplies a pretty good installation manual so it won't be a diy thread.

    You and I are back on speaking terms Click here to enlarge

    If you need any help with the thread let me know, I intend to put it up on the front page. Ton of pics with some descriptions in certain areas would be great. Doesn't have to be a DIY, just detailed and sounds like you detailed it!

    You don't have to do a leak down or compression test. A baseline dyno is definitely a good idea.
