If they are going out of business then why would they waste their time with this project or deal?

The shop is not associated with BimmerBrakes or Eurocharged, it's jut a local shop with a dyno who did the install. Was easier to use them (in theory) because everything was there in the same place.

You think we would just be sitting on info if we had it? This shop we used (not eurocharged) is a nightmare to deal with and if it wasn't over an hour away from my house I'd go walk in and make him print me everything out.

You said you had text files of the pull data right? comma delineated .txt? That's amazingly easy to plot.
If the data in those files is good, then you have everything you need.

I received the GEN3 headers from BimmerBrakes and they looked NOTHING like any of the photos you posted. I'm not sure what happened to yours (nor do I care honestly), but the issue is you're just making the same point over and over.

You've made it, it's well documented, now move on

I can honestly say I've been on the fence on a BB header purchase for a long time. Rather than get in a pissing contest, maybe we can get some pictures that show the inside tubing. Perhaps some dyno #s. Post fitment pictures?

I dont believe xixixi is trying to stir shit up. There have been multiple valid complaints from the past header batches and I'd be the first to buy the new version if those worries were put to rest. I imagine many people following this thread feel the same way.

And in case I need to qualify my indecision on purchase....I have no interest in dropping $1k+ on headers. At the same time I'd rather pay $300 instead of $100 for ebay headers if some quality control is part of that purchase.

Since the graphs don't look like they're coming (ever), do you want to tell us what the peak numbers were before/after so we can at least determine if it's even worth continuing to inquire about the results...

Bimmerbrakes: Any other 330's and/or dyno's near by for another before and after?
8 Mustang dyno's within 50miles of DFW
http://www.mustangdyne.com/mustangdy...a-dynamometer/

50+ Dynojets in Texas
http://www.dynojet.com/dyno_centers/....aspx?state=TX

We shouldn't have to pull teeth to get results. I think somewhere along the line it got forgotten that we are still potential customers....

SH4DY,

We only got in 1 ProtoType and they went to UdubBadger. We did some fine adj to the headers. Fitment is 100% and wasn't any issues with that. I do have some other pictures that UdubBadger sent me but I need to watermark them before uploading them anywhere. I will post it up on the website once done.

I will try to get the files from UdubBadger and see if I have my PC machine up and running. As we use Mac here as well.

The order has been placed and is expected to be here Mid Feb.

-Anthony@BimmerBrakes

Edit: Update Photos.

I understand where your coming from, I was lied to. You can all see what I was promised and what I received. Facts are facts and ebays are just as good. The fact that you guys can't get a dyno sheet together after over a month is enough for most. You send me a set of headers, I'll take all the pics inside, outside, fitment around the motor mount. Then dyno it on 3 different tunes within a week with afrs logged. Why would you pick some idiots to do the work and testing if it wasn't to hide something? Or to later have a good fall guy. If I was marketing an awesome product with awesome results, I'd let the product and results do the talking. This is the same guy that said he would post up pictures of the headers he is selling now. 8 months ago in another thread, don't be a victim like me. Learn from my short comings. Furthermore, Anthony never made good on his word in the last thread I linked, how stupid would you be to believe this will be any different? Wake up people.
