Have you given up on the low compression built? I've been thinking about it but the cost is just too much. If I can get my car to 350whp (on a mustang dyno) with maybe just a bit of meth I'll be done.
Yes, I am really looking forward to hitting the drag strip again, probably in a couple of weeks. I should be able to at least improve my final road speed at the end of the 1/4. I have been doing granny shifts, so that should improve the end results when I start smashing the gears in, LOL.

Yes, the low compression build is out the window, I opted for E85 tune instead - so the engine is still standard.

Have you put the smaller pulley and aggressive tune back on yet?
50 50 will definitely help and with a re-tune this will be very solid.
You could always swap the M54B25 for a M54B30 - that is another 30 whp.

LOL, no, I just fixed the boost leak 2 days ago. I might do it tonight.
I have already swapped the b25 for b30. I should really make a new thread that documents the build now that it's nearly done.

2002 Touring
M54B30
TS2+ (8.5 PSI headers but no cams)
6 speed manual
Quaife LSD 3.38
Billstein PSS10
reinforced subframe
+ some cosmetic things like gauges hidden under the sunglasses holder door, M3 steering wheel.

The goal was to build innocent looking but very quick wagon - http://www.pazouti.com/cars/w41.jpg

Firstly,.... I love the wagon sleeper (I have always thought about doing this, when ever I see a wagon up for sale... but it means more wasted money...)

Absolutely a great motor the M54B30. (I am yet to blow mine up)

LOL, 6 Speed and 3.38 you will be taking off from 2nd soon with all the new found power that you got and future increase.

I still run the 2.93 with the Quaife (gotta love the Quaife, one of the best LSD's I have ever put in a car)

Those extractors that you have in your link are they from eBay, they look the same as the ones I bought - but have not installed yet, I am hoping to free up the top end more with these when fitted with the 2.5" electric CutOut.

Did you notice much of a difference with the extractors?

Assuming that by extractors you mean headers. They are from BimmerBrakes, not sure if the guy still makes them. I think they are modeled after Super Sprint headers. They are supposed to fit slightly better than the cheapest stuff from e-bay. There were still some issues on install but the build quality is pretty good.
I can't tell how much difference they make as I installed everything at the same time - engine, SC, headers. Basically doubled the power output from stock 325i

A/C tensioner and pulley, Etc

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...ostcount=33429

Had a little time to actually do some work on my car.

Fitted:
1. UUC Under Drive Pulleys - WP and PS, (with new drive belt 1950mm, probably 5-10 mm to long but it will do the job for now. Was 1930mm)
2. A/C tensioner and pulley, and
3. New top radiator and expansion hose tube.

A couple of weeks ago I fitted the S54 Cam chain tensioner and over-run Alt pulley.

When I started the car up a couple of weeks ago the car was noticeably quieter after fitting the S54 cam chain tensioner.

Took the car for a drive today after fitting new parts, the car definetly is quieter and revs a lot smoother - very noticeable.

The UUC pulleys are a little bit heavier than the OEM pulleys.

^ Congrats, all of these little things add up in a big way. I'm glad you're enjoying your new found smoothness.

Yes, the smoothness... The car is more of a pleasure to drive especially when revving hard to the 7k redline.

Thanks rob for the knowledge that your provide here.

I think I will need another dyno before I add more mods.

It has more tension for the cam chain. Keeps the cam chain at a more constant tension to keep the cams in relation to the crank in better alignment, especially good for high RPM.

My M54 cam chain tensioner had very little resistance compared to the S54 cam chain tensioner.

How is your motor build coming along?

What parts and work are you doing?

What RPM will your rev limit be set at?

Are you still living in Darwin? Would be good to see what it does in terms of speed now they have lifted the restrictions on the Stuart Hway.

Well done with your progress

No, I live in Brisbane now.

Kool, did they remove the speed limit as when they reduced the open speed limit to 130 km/h years ago, the death ***55357;***56448; toll on the road went up.

Thanks, still have some goodies to go on before I will be satisfied.
I want to get over 400 whp on a Dyno Dynamics, which I should achieve quite easily once finished.
Time to actually work on the car is limited to like six hrs every two weeks.

Cheers.
