Hanging up the BMW keyfob

Well guys back in the FI camp but not a BMW this time. Got bored waiting for a RHD turbo kit (was planning on trading the Z4M in for another M3 to do this).

Try the dyno with the A/C turned On then Off there`s no drag when the A/C is turned off as it`s not compressing anything even with the belt in place.

Really don`t know then, boost and AFr was where it needed to be and it dyno`d at 378 RWHP on a DD, maybe the extra weight of the `Vert is a bigger hurdle at lower speeds ?

I was actually wrong AJ, my convertible gained 1.1s to 100mph.

I was running catless AJ and boost gauge was showing 6 PSi (spiking at 6.4 sometimes).

4s quicker to 120 is huge, are you sure thats right ? That would be about 2-3s quicker over 1/4 mile run, so...

I can't comment for the Turbo guys but I think most people with stage 1 superchargers are a little disappointed if they're truly honest.

Without adding air/fuel the only way you`d get more power from a "so-called remap" is by advancing timing or stoping the car pulling timing when it needs to.

0-60 is very difficult due to traction especially with SMG. 0-100 mph is a better gauge if your wanting a standing start.

Best I managed was 0-60 4.4s (SMG) and 0-100 in 8.7s both with the roof...

Chris, how difficult would it be for AEM to rejig the piggyback for the Z4M ? (I realise it`s not a massive market for HPF`s but it would then work on the LHD and RHD Zed`s).
