The brake job for this car is pretty straight forward. In fact they are the same brakes as the E8x(excluding the 135i/is), E9x and F30 non-M BMWs so this guide should apply to those models as well. As a little bonus I painted the caliper and disk brake drums. Since the old stuff was pretty rusty looking I figured painting them black would make everything look nice. I am

On a never ending mission for the best track times, I turned my attention to the rims. The goal here is not to lose weight but to increase grip. With the stock front tires being woefully inadequate at 215mm wide, the car understeers pretty easily at the track. Moving to a 255mm squared set up will balance out the car tremendously and make it more
Adding a new air intake is one of the simplest modifications to do to any car. It improves throttle response, makes awesome noises and sometimes they just look good. An intake by itself usually will not produce more power. Once the car has a tune and the turbo needs to breathe easier is when an intake becomes necessary.
Most intakes here are offered in an oil media. Unlike traditional panel filters, oiled filters are reusable but do not filter the
With the Walboro 267 you will be able to run as much e85 as the Fuelit! Stage 2 kit . The total cost for everything was around 80 bucks with everything included.
There are two models of this Walboro, the 267 and the 274. The 274 is a different design and offers a higher psi than the 267. You can find the DIY for that model here: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1428292 I also stole some pictures from this thread because I either forgot
This little thing comes on Monday and I am so excited to put it in. I will be able to run up to e60 and with Port Injection I can run 100% e85. This is the same pump thats in the Fuel It! Stage 2 LPFP that sells for 400 bucks. Why spend 400 when you can spend 50 bucks and grab a friend and some brews and bang it out in an hour. Or 5. Never know.
It cracked 40 degrees in PA last week so to celebrate the heat wave I took Betty out for a drive. Had to take a couple of photos. Still had salt and water on the road so she is a little dirty.

Went to our cars and coffee on Saturday. We had a huge turn out despite the sun and awful humidity.I think I am getting a little better at this photography thing but I can't figure out this imagine sharpen thing.
After fixing the blown coolant hose I went out to Pocono with a few friends. It rained for the majority of the day but it did dry up in time for the 3rd session. The car did fantastic in the rain but I do not think I did. I felt like I was missing apexes and not braking late. The EBC reds are not cutting it anymore. I was expecting to spin out at least once since the car
I finally got around to post something. On the 26th I went to the track for the first time and ran the 1er. It was an amazing experience besides for two things but I will get to that in a bit. A buddy of mine, his friend and myself went to Pittsburgh International Race Complex to thrash around our cars. I ran in the novice group, obviously, and apparently we had a large group. 30 or 40 of us
