    Yeah not quite big enough, I already placed the order for the new one. It is a slightly larger core then the VRSF and overall as well, Hoping it will turnout. Realistically it's more surface and volume so should work the same if not better. Where do your IAT's' sit before and after runs typically? I expected to outflow the IC and exhaust but was curious how far the factory exhaust and my little IC would take it. Wasn't expecting to have everything just work without miss or any other issues TBH so figured it would be a while before I was out flowing em. I really should say it's a good thing haha.

    Id go with the VRSF 7" IC. Payam, MR2Josh, myself (on 2 ST cars) use it with no issues. IAT stays well within reason. Your Godspeed 5" just isnt cutting it lol

    Thank ninja! Yeah it's a process but after that we should be running at 100% :) I think I am going to get a very small nozzle and hook up some meth too to try and save some more in the IAT dept. We are skeptical like others that IAT could be causing some false knock/ flat line so the more we can decrease the better. Besides more air density more power, plus so extra octane though running E not necessary still helpful. I will update again once I get some more info on the new additions.

    Yeah, that was a big help. I'll try to get some videos and pic up later this week. next week is when the exhaust and FMIC should be getting here. Then i'll post some logs of before and after and see how the changes look.

    Hello everyone, I decided that I am going to sell my beloved 190e. A lot of you know this car. I bought it from Mark (5dbl-o) on this forum in January of 2012. I flew out to Virginia, picked it up, drove it home, and have enjoyed it greatly ever since. Below is a portion of his original FS thread that I feel I should post since he is the one who performed the major mechanical changes on the vehicle. 1/10/2012: "What a beast. I have close to 10k invested. many pics (mb tech for over 20 years , I personally put this car together but now time for a boat) anybody seriously interested call me work # 434-386-9035 Bought on ebay from dealer in Toms River NJ for 2600.00 It has 80,000 miles on the car. Converted to 3.2 liter 5 speed manual. Also bought a 1995 e320 sedan for the donor car. I removed the engine and replaced the head gasket and performed a nice 3 ange valve job. Replaced the timing chain , water pump and other items I cant remember. Custom made the wiring harness everything soldered and heat shrink. Bought a getrag 5 speed from a scrapyard for 600.00 (it had been on the shelf there for 10 years. Yes I got very lucky. The fluid was so clear it was like brand new) it is flawless. Genuine new MB flywheel My buddy machinist (34 years expert) took 9 lbs off the flywheel and balanced it for me. Installed all new genuine MB clutch and linkages, and everything that goes with it. Shifter and pedals from ebay uk. new bushings in shifter and new genuine MB shift knob/boot. Gathered all 16v body parts painted them and installed the body kit. (320.00 worth of fasteners) This car runs very strong and seems to never stop pulling. I installed a 329 limited slip from a e320 4matic wagon/ cut, shortened and sleeved axles properly. Dont want to scare anybody off but I do have nitrous installed and have run 1 bottle through it. Wow, Nice. Since this car was automatic it has the kickdown switch under the acc. pedal. That is the activation button and I tucked the child lockout switch under the console so it is always on and the child lockout switch that you see in the console just arms the system. factory look I moved the battery to the trunk because the new control units take up the old battery space up front. I run a passport radar detector and use an optical isolater so when the detector goes off it mutes the stereo . Interior and body in great ,great shape Beilstin sport shocks, front suspension and front brakes from the 95 e320. I have been an auto tech for 34 years and strictly mercedes for 22 years now You dont have a clue how strong and reliable a car like this is unless you have driven one with this conversion. Want to know more call me 434-238-8378 or 434-386-9035 Sorry, The rear diff was from a 91 300te 4matic. It is 329 limited slip with the hydraulic 100 % lock option." The car now has 90,000 miles. Other than much preventative and regular maintenance. The only changes I performed were OEM euro headlights/turn signals/tail lights and AMG Hammer wheels. The car never skipped a beat, has always been an absolute joy to drive and look at. After having numerous 190's including another M104 swapped car, I am convinced that this is one of the most properly built 190's out there. Shortly after buying the car, I took it to a local dyno day at PSI Proformance, where the car put down a healthy 222whp/226wtq on a Dynojet (no nitrous). I've only used the nitrous on one evening shortly purchasing the car. It's definitely a very nice boost, but I never felt the need for it enough to refill the bottle. The car starts, runs, and drives with no issues. I purchased a SPEC Stage 2+ clutch shortly after buying the car, simply because. I felt that the clutch will eventually need to be replaced, but it doesn't. I will include the new clutch kit with the car. Sadly, I am currently very busy, and do not drive the car often. It is by far the favorite car I've ever owned, but it deserves more attention than I am able to give it. It needs to be driven and shown around. I do not need to sell the car, and will not sell it to someone who will not care for it properly. If your 16 year old son is looking for a first car, I will likely not let that car be my 190. As far as an asking price, I am asking $14,000. This is a car for someone who is willing to pay to have a properly built, no expense spared, and ultra reliable car.

    Just looked at the one a little closer, didn't realize the 6266 was running 32 psi, 5 more psi for only 23 more WHP, and at 6500 the stock frames begin to pull away a little bit. Still blowing my mind. Its becoming more, and more clear, for >700WHP Stage 2+ cannot be beat for the price, if you want <700WHP then its time to go single, or stage 3. @fastgti69 we basically posted the same thing at the same time. Hahahaha

    sad but true with vsrf , that is LOVED on other forums for hsi cheap prices which undercut proper businesses who did the real work. The post you made about him on your forum was very eye opening.

    +1 for a good 600whp DD and an occasional kill mode tune for 650+whp. This is a no brainer 100% for someone who is looking for that power. If other people are looking into 700whp+ the ST option would possibly be a better solution.

    Someone please overlay vs the motiv 750 dyno. http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?63475-Article-MOTIV-750-N54-single-turbo-kit-E70-Dyno-Testing-by-BMS-on-their-BMW-E82-135i-637-wheel-horsepower Looks like more power across the whole band. Of course the single can be turned up even more but if you consider the cost difference the stock frames are a no-brainer.

    100% not easy to learn how to drive the monster in one session. You'll get better and you'll keep improving the car and your skills. You should update some pics and videos of your car now that it's completed!

    I had the N63 engine on my now turned in 2012 550xi. What a horrid engine. Had to have the fuel injectors replaced twice and gave my countless check engine lights, limp home mode and trips to the shop. By the time I gleefully unloaded that POS after three years the engine was burning a quart of oil every 500 miles or less. Good riddance to that engine. My prior two BMW V8s were bulletproof.

    Just keep whittling away at it man. Everyone thinks you just tighten a couple of bolts and its Boom! 700+ hp daily/weekend racer lol. It takes time to get all the details worked out. Agree on that ebay exhaust on @3000gt car. Sounds sick :drool: I just got mine running this weekend. Shakedown cruises, make sure there is no leaks, get some heat into it to burn in the wrap on the downpipe. Still on waste gate until I get the port injection kit on and the stage 3 fuel system in. No rush here Thanks for the update:handgestures-thumb:

    UPDATE: Made it out to St. Louis Street Car Takeover on Saturday and ran the at 26-30 PSI all day, car got about 10 runs in (almost as many as I could) and none very impressive best roll trap was 126 and dig 1/4 was 120 :( . Found a few big flaws while there, feels like the BP is getting quite high through the stock cats and the IAT's are really high causing issues of their own. Not to mention constantly getting locked out of a couple gears (or my driving?) it feels like it's not that tough to out run the syncros in the trans unfortunately even after doing red line MTL fluid recently. Though i am not 100% on this at all because I scrambled to get things done the night before and got to bed late, then up at 4 AM trailered down and raced all day so i very well may have been tired and making mistakes too. I have ordered a Rev 9 V2 FMIC... Yes it's ebay but from all the math I did it's the largest core available and 2nd largest overall to the CXracing one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/REV9-V2-FMIC-Front-Mount-Intercooler-E82-E88-135-E90-E92-335-Twin-Turbo-N54B30-/400792152874 To address the BP issues I have ordered the ebay exhaust as well, after listening to @3000gt videos of it I really like it and for the price you can't beat it! http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-335i-E90-E92-07-08-09-10-Twin-Turbo-N54-Coupe-Sedan-Full-Catback-Exhaust-/151260844166?fits=Model%3A335i May possibly try swapping MT fluid again with something different unsure need to drive again after some sleep HAHA
