What parts of your exhaust were custom made and what is BW, I'm looking into a BW exhaust and I have future plans for max psi also...

BW stands for BimmerWorld. The only 'custom' part of my exhaust is the part coming off the turbo and goes to section 2. Because the Max PSI kit assumes you're going to an OEM-like 2 pipe section 2, but the BW race is a single 3.5" all the way back. It's about a 6" piece of pipe that needs to be welded in; no big deal.

We will have a 3.5" system shortly, so get in touch with us before picking up the BW system!

Dynos on MS109 will be done either by end of this week or next. UUC Clutch and flywheel need some breaking in

Woah!!!

That is not even close to being legal as a "roll bar".

What is missing:

- Back-stays going from the top corner of the main hoop, to the shock tower plates.
- Diagonal bar from driver's top corner of main hoop, to floor of passenger side
- Cross bar at mid-level of main hoop. (Also known as harness bar)
- Diagonal door bar; can be removable (Must go from the main hoop to the base of the A-pillar area, and be terminated with a base plate)

I realize that this an optional thing for you, but if you are going to do it, why not do it right. What you have started, and it looks very nice, isn't going to provide the protection I believe you are looking for. The main hoop, while providing additional protection to the OEM chassis, could collapse under roll-over conditions.

Sorry for being so critical of something that has obviously been fabricated at a very high level, but I have a lot of "bad" experience to draw from.

And for anyone thinking I'm giving KrisBoss a hard time.

He is one of the very few that I've seen address personal safety on a street car. I commend him for that.

After reading this I was confused, so I went back to the pictures I posted and realized I didn't upload the 'complete' ones. The items in bold above have been done to this 'cage'. I didn't want the last one as this is still (although barely) a street car. I'll be uploading more pictures when I get back from being out of town. Hopefully it's painted by then too.

Is your UUC twin disc the "organic" version ?

Yes, it is. For SMG cars you don't want the kevlar or feramic versions because they're too sticky and the car becomes a burden to drive in parking lots and stop-n-go traffic, which is why I got rid of the HPF (South Bend) Stage 2 feramic clutch.

Looking forward to seeing more pictures of the roll bar.

Do you have any clearance issues with the charge pipe? It looks awfully low in one of the pics. Also, do you get any awesome intake turbo spooling noises from your precision turbo??

If you read the OP, you will find that there was a simple fix to the low charge pipe. You basically have to cut the boot a little so that it will slide on more, therefore, creating more clearance. I haven't hit anything yet, so it's perfect.

With the 3.5" dump valve open, you can hear the turbo spooling a lot; like a semi almost haha, but with the valve open it's very quiet and tamed. However, once you let off the BOV sounds orgasmic.

lol yea I read it but I wasn't sure how much of a dramatic difference it made. I read anther post where they had to scarifies their ac compressor to make it all fit. So with the valve shut and when the wastegate opens up, is it still "quiet"?

I can't wait pull the trigger on the stage 1 turbo mainly because my BW exhaust is driving me insane! I bought it anticipating of turboing my car but I spent the "turbo fund money" on other things and I've been driving around straight piped for 4 months. It'll be so nice to have peace and quiet again. and lots of power

No, you don't have to sacrifice your AC compressor; that would be absurd and wouldn't be considered a 'plug-n-play' kit anymore.

The turbo is essentially one big arse resonator, so it will be a lot quieter than it is now. You WILL hear the wastegate and BOV go off at any RPM over 3k, which sounds amazing. Now, with the dump valve open, all you hear is the spool of the turbo and it is orgasmic to say the least.

will it be a single sided exit? (that's why I was looking into the BW exhaust) I have s54 sedan and don't want to cut the spare tire well out...

BTW it was nice meeting you at Pocono and awesome watching the maxpsi cars walking the Porsche's, supra's, GTR's etc. on the track
