    Hoping somebody does some testing with exhaust venturi's and/or electric smog/air pumps. I would think having a good vacuum source would allow to use a more restrictive but better filtering OCC. I...

    3.2? Last year the stroker was 3.07 has this changed?

    Not that it helps but I emailed Blackstone asking about oils for the N54 here's the response I got.



    Kinda sounds like anybody that gets their oil analyzed is using decent enough oil and...

    Yeah BMW ran out of BMW rentals last time I was there and gave me a Yaris. I told them they ever do that $#@! to me again I'll go somewhere else for service. That poor little POS was floored all the...

    I would agree that if you can get the Vanos setting correct it would help. This is what Mazda is doing with their Skyactiv engines. But I can tell you on Mazda it really only helps at mid level...

    It would be nice to see people actually start playing with N2O again, seeing how the platform has matured some with a lot better tuning knowledge and hardware. I think the previous knowledge from...

    Source would have been all my years subscribing to Sport Compact Car. That was one of their requirements during dyno testing, I'm sure it probably really skewed the numbers on some Civic SI's and...

    As for the gear ratio questions earlier the advantage of using 5th in a 6MT car is 5th is a 1:1 ratio so you don't lose quite as much through the gears. 6AT doesn't have a 1:1 so not sure what the...

    I don't doubt that. Given the N54 vendors I would say there's a really good chance of that.
  11. If everybody would see the big picture here I...

    If everybody would see the big picture here I don't think it would take a lot of money in the long run. That is if somehow Sticky could persuade vendors to help out. They are supposed to be part of...

    I would argue that it doesn't make sense. But clearly your attitude towards it always states that you have no interest in that happening. Dyno time is cheap just to get numbers. If you found...

    Actually I was hoping you would take that kind of seriously. Work with the vendors. I would hope most vendors would give up products at cost prices, so there's no loss there. Find a few trustworthy...

    Actually I wish you would fund a few people that would properly test the vendors equipment similar to how tuner mags used to. I'd love to see the same car, same dyno compare and compare all the...

    Any updates on this? I'm having sway issues at WOT on my 135i. I have all the bushings and M3 or upgraded rear end parts. I just added the last two rear links I didn't have yet and retorqued...

    My winner is a 94 Saturn SC1. Bought it as a beater when saturn was really holding their value, 6 months later they stopped holding their value. Worst and Best car ever. 14K on it when I bought it. I...

    I've driven the Turbo model. Had 70K miles on it. Didn't live up to the hype of having a turbo or lotus suspension. Very unique car though I liked the newer styled ones.

    Has anybody considering trying to adapt a hydraulic throw out bearing? Something adjustable that you can set the exact clearance desired.

    FYI you need to click on the other pics not the standard one. The standard one shoes a rubber with metal inserts and then when you click it shows a metal with rubber inserts. Just out of curiosity...

    This is the first I've heard of this. I wouldn't think a nut that big and heavy duty would need replacing. But if that is the case I guess it shouldn't be a surprise BMW seems to recommend replacing...

    Only difficult part in working with the diff's on BMW's is just that stupid 50mm nut where the drive shaft meets the diff. You can buy the tool or grind a cheap wrench down to fit it. First time off...

    I'm no expert on steering shaft safety or the RHD setup but I've seen some pics of very crafty shaft movement on custom motor swapped cars. Any room to pull of some shaft redirecting magic?

    Is the tuning on the d's advanced enough yet to worry about upgrading the turbos? I know europe seems to be several years ahead of the US on the tuning and emmissions modification portion.

    Unfortunately I won't know for awhile. Alignment got all F'd up and ate up the very inside of my tires and I didn't realize it. So I'm taking the time to upgrade all the rear links before getting new...
