It says 81mm on the picture, but according to ESS in my previous post this is now 83mm with the TS2+. The TS2 is now sold with the 85mm pulley. I think you can request a smaller pulley from ESS,...

I have the original 83mm pulley that came with the TS2 kit. I believe ESS is selling the 85mm pulley now with the TS2 kit for safety and the 83 for the TS2+...which used to be 81mm I believe. You...

I can't say if the butt dyno gave me any extra with the 50/50 mix. I want to say maybe a little because of the octane boost, but I have not tuned for it. What gave me a kick in the pants was having...

I wish I could go to 7200. That would put me around 175mph or a bit more instead of the 165mph limit at about 6800. Not that I do that all the time:thumbsup:

Looks like 2.5 for me also looking at my exhaust specs. I know ESS says for their next stage (3) porting the exhaust ports 8-10mm wider. I think going 3" would be good especially if you are looking...

Stett headers and Magnaflow 16533 (I think 2.5 with 3 inch tip). Looks like the Stett for the e46 non-M is out of stock. Ebay headers are probably just as good and a little cheaper...the last link...

That will be a great setup. I did add headers, catback Magnaflow exhaust, modified pulley and methanol injection to name a few. You should be able to pull some good numbers with your setup, but...

I'm guessing around 385hp and about 350ft-lb torque. No dyno yet. Maybe this summer. I can put about 5 or 6 car lengths on an e92 DCT/comp pkg M3 (friends car) from around 80km/h to 265km/h (he...
