My Ride: 03 AW 330I AA Stg 2.
Going FI, want to prep my car...

Hey guys hows it going, finally bit the bullet and made the decision to go FI. Car is payed off and i feel its time. I just have a few questions for all of you gurus out there. My car is an 03 330i and currently at 99k miles and im pretty sure i need to prep up the engine with some maintanence before going FI.

Heres the deal though, i live in south florida and have 2 great shops with kits around my area. One being Technique Tuning and the other Active Autowerke. Still debating which kit to go with, either stage 2 AA or stage 1 TT. Which do u guys think would be more reliable for a daily?

Also here are the mechanical mods my car currently has with maintanence that have been performed.

-F1 racing LTW chromoly flywheel with sachs clutch kit
-Pilot bearing, Pivot pin, Clutch fork, T/O bearing with sleeve replaced
-UUC Black Poly Tranny mounts w/ enforcers
-UUC Delrin shift carrier bushings, all new OEM shifter bushings
-BMW performance SSK
-SS replica headers
-Exhaust cut before 2nd resonator, 2 single 2.5 inch Magnaflow mufflers to custom dual center exits. (Adding Supersprint x-pipe)
-Vanos seals replaced at 80k with new VCG.
-Meyle HD FCABS with replaceable ball joints at 85k
-Velocity Motorcars adjustable endlinks
-Rokkor Tuning coils (replaced all strut mounts etc.)

What i plan on doing before installing FI

-TMS power pulleys
-Complete Cooling system overhaul including all hoses etc.
-Spark plugs
-Replace all vacuum hoses in the engine (noticed many have been cracking/ breaking off)
-AKG Motorsport Polyurethane 80a black engine mounts
-Change MTF
-Change Diff fluid
-Fuel filter
-Leatherz VDO guage panel (Boost, Oil temp, oil pressure)

Thats all i can think of right now, is there anything else that you guys would recommend to swap out/ replace? If so you guys would be a great help. Thanks in advance
