Okay, it's installed. Car felt awesome tonight. But, it's also about 20 degrees cooler than it's been in months. So, I won't get too excited, yet.

On another note. Magnaflow is SOLD. Should be going in next week to get the exhaust going. Guess I'll have to hurry up and dyno the TB

Also picked up a set of wheel studs from Vorshlag today. Pics tomorrow! Look WAY better than the stock bolts.

So, I'm lying in bed unable to sleep and the name "Bim Growl" comes into my head. I was getting into the scene about the time he started getting out of it (and scamming people).

I found his FS thread when he was trying to sell his 330. Here's what he had listed:

Engine/ Driveline:
Conforti Shark Software
Gruppe M Intake
Technik Underdrive Pulleys
Dinan Throttle Body
Supersprint Headers
Supersprint High Flow Racing Cats
Rogue DMS Exhaust
Technik Port/Polished Cylinder Head
Schrick 248/248 profile Cams
UUC Polyurethane Transmission Mounts
UUC Clutch Stop
3.38 Differential

Claimed:
Dyno #'s: 255rwhp, 242torque


So, aside from head work and that I'm running slightly different cams, we're right on the same track. I'll be running the 3 inch exhaust. Honestly, 240rwhp before pulling the head was my goal, and I would have been happy with 250rwhp after head work. Now I think I'm going to have to shoot for 260 at the wheels. Can't have this lingering over my head...

I'm trying not to get too excited. The car felt good tonight, but I'm sure it's just mental. I really doubt the TB made that much power. Still, I'm excited. Hoping for Saturday morning for the pulls. It only supposed to be a high of 90, last time it was around 100 when I hit the rollers.

I was running the M50 TB for the longest time and finally got a mechanical M54 unit. It runs all of the M50 components on an M54-sized unit. (20% larger bore area)

Initially, the change felt awesome! The car seemed to have much better throttle response and felt more powerful. I came to realize that it was mostly an illusion because going to a larger bore changes relation of pedal position to airflow. For instance, on the smaller bore I had 100CFM at 20% throttle, on the larger bore I had it at 16% throttle.

There is more true power fer sure, but I doubt it's more than 5 hp.

Better than nothing. I'd be happy with 2-3 at the wheels, honestly.

Just a quick pic of the studs. Excuse the filthy car. It's supposed to rain/drizzle for a few days, so I didn't even bother to clean her up.



Got setup to have the exhaust welded on Wednesday (8th). Woot!
