I sure hope so because I already put mine in like as preventative measure while I changed the rod bearings last weekend and I ain't going back there for a while (I hope!).
On the bottom - yes. Not truly a washer, but kinda like that - you are doubling the metal thickness. On the bottom so you don't raise the engine - that is the wrong direction.

OK whew... I had the whole front assembly dropped but could not get on top of the subframe to fully see all possibilities. (had rack and control arms still attached just only to get oil pan out). Thanks for confirming James... OK back to regularly scheduled program.

old thread i know but good to see my current build fall pretty close to this one in most areas. no cf airbox, and no aero. not doing tune, header or clutch this time through either but probably next winter, along with rod bearings.

It is good to see this project have that level of staying power. We keep tweaking on the cars and working with manufacturers to tune parts or fill some gaps better. Today I'm writing this post from Performance Friction HQ in Clover, SC - and there will be some nice ports to follow quite soon. 345mm Direct Driver rotor for CSL kits in the new V3 version - no nuts and bolts to hold the ring on - changing takes 1 minute! And other goodies of course...

As always, if you guys and girls have questions on anything we did or are doing on these, I am happy to personally help if you can catch me in the office, or via email - james@bimmerworld.com.

I wish they would develop a direct drive for the e46 330i fronts. The BMW Performance ones are decent but they have a tendency to cone on me, so I would love to see some direct drive rotors.

Good call...1moremod is as girly as they come. I heard he screams when his car starts to oversteer.

I second that. 2003 ZHP sedan here, in need of some good direct replacement rotors.

They have recently come out with some direct-fit stepped versions, but for the power we are going to make, we opted for the older version that required an alternate section 1 piece if you are adapting it to an otherwise stock-style exhaust. I pulled these from our pile of experimental parts so they are used, but only on Sundays.

Is that quote still valid or does it need some updates?
