    I'd do the GTX3576.
    More efficient, won't need as much boost, will respond lightning fast still and have power to redline. It's also always worth calling Garrett directly and asking what they'd...

    Multiple track days on my E90 335i and now on my E82, no baffle... I guess I should do it.

    I wanted to run Swift springs and the Vorschlag plates enable more neg camber to be dialed in. Killed two birds, kinda thing.

    Thanks!

    1- M3 rack -- I didn't wire up Servotronic. I know it's been done. It's not important to me and with 255s up front on this light-ish car, I don't feel I need it. I also don't drive it...

    Giant update time!

    Car has been awesome. Here's a video of its first shakedown at November's Global Time Attack Super Lap Battle @ Buttonwillow. Never driven that track and it was my first time in...

    Agreed. I was having major ignition issues with my turbo E46 M, replaced with the Ignition Projects (okada) plasma coils and power box -- huge improvement and never had an issue. Mike Essa runs them...

    Sick build. Plz fix your tail lights. Stoked to see how you fit 355s out back. Glad to see you've done the right things with the rear end in regards to arms, bushings, mounts and LSD. So many people...

    I really would love to know more about failsafes and meth applied for road racing and track applications. Just scares me, but with the cost of race gas and unavailability of e85 at the track, along...

    Haven't started to assemble it yet. It started here as a sketch, then I ordered everything.
    Today I'm doing the brakes, seats, fire extinguisher, catch can and strut bar. I'll see if I have time to...

    I like that you're tired of leaking $#@!ty stock turbos, and the fix is a fully custom and majorly expensive v8 swap instead of just going with a single turbo, bolt on solution. Sounds well thought...

    N54: 135i Build - track toy with a license plate

    Think some of you followed my last E90 build. If you liked that, then I think you'll like this build even more.

    I think this 135i marks my 14th car, so here we go.

    The E90 335i was an awesome...

    This will not have any dictation on whether you're replacing your shocks. If you're running stock suspension, and it's old, mushy and tired, sure, something to address, but not mandatory with this...

    No, not at all. Would never sell a car over a flywheel/clutch.

    Weight savings and the itch to get into something new, plus the awesome deal I got on the 1er, were all the big factors.

    I've been swamped with work, which is good, so progress is slow going.
    So far, I've really been enjoying my bone stock 135i, and have concluded the stock DMFW makes this motor feel about 150% better...

    OS Geiken makes only awesome $#@!. Do some research on the company. Would have zero hesitation of running any of their stuff. Most race and drift dudes alike run their clutch or diff at some point.

    I hope the E90 will go on to a great owner and someone who's ready to take it to the next level! It will be a seriously awesome package, as not everything on the car is coming off.

    As for the 1,...

    Lots of work and research. Not a very common setup at all. It'll take a healthy serving of neg front camber (I run -3.25*), and I run a 7" spring on my Clubsports up front. Perch to tire clearance...
