.::|Active Autowerkes Stage "TrippinBimmer" 330i ZHP Supercharged Street/Show Car|::.

I am never good with surprises so I will just spill the beans... I ordered my AA stage 2.5 kit two weeks ago. The wait is excruciating. Parts of the Kit has arrive and waiting for a few more stuff

I thought, I would create this thread to document the build.

Also when I get the kit I will have the following items up for sale:

1. aFe Stage 1 Intake Kit - E46 325i/Ci 330i/Ci - Pro5R

This aFe intake fits the following BMWs:
  • 2003-2006 E46 3 series: 325i 325ci 325xi + Wagon & Convertible models with M56 engine
  • 2001-2006 E46 3 series: 330i 330ci 330xi + Convertible
  • 2004-2006 E83 X3: X3 3.0i
2. Stett m54b30 Intake Boot (Black)
3. F1 Autohaus 325i/330i Ceramic-Metallic-Coated Headers
4. M54B30 Stock Throttle Body
5. Drop-In K&N Air Filter for Stock Intake Box.

I am excited I would like to Thank Viral and the AA TEAM!

I am going to run BimmerBrakes New Equal Length Headers.

Not going to do anything to the motor until the summer or so. During that time, I will install Raceware HeadStud, Port and Polish, 3 Angle Valve Job the head.

Who told you all this? There is plenty of members on here running the stage 2 kit. .5 is Meth added to the kit. Plus, our internals are Forged.

Who's doing your head work ?

The Main Reason for Head Pull is install the RaceWare Stud. Unless, I can install without pulling it?

i was just thinking all that power would require some beefier internals on our little engines forged or not but thats interesting. i guess if you are doing it by summer time building the internals than it won't be that long. how much whp are you shooting for? 365 maybe?

I'd buy several oem head studs, over torque to around 70+lbs. (You will need more than, the required amount) Not all of the studs you receive, will be able to hold that torque. You will need extras!. Those raceware's are a huge mistake in my eyes. They won't tolerate being over trq, or hold the head down at the required trq specs. Epic thread!! GL man!!

Dude... you'll be fine. I push 363rwhp and all I have is new pistons rings and metal head gasket lol. It's your drive-train you'll have to worry about.
