Boost Level : 8.0 psi

So in our measurements that is 228 Kw and 361 Nm
Kit looks great ..... nice power bump also!!

so I take it all the bugs are ironed out or is there a little more to be done??

congrats and am sure you are enjoying the enhancement

Got a few questions for you Kimberely.

1. If your car run stable with 8psi with the current setup, how flexible/durable is she if you were to yank up the boost?
2. Are all AA S/C kits only running at 8psi? YANK that $hit up! Our old blacktop SR20DET was running 19psi (stock T-28, HKS cams with 264/12, 2.2L stroker, controlled by APEXi PFC), but then again; not familiar with the adjustments of S/C systems.
3. Wat fuel grade is the ~230kW output with? What is minimum grade for the AA S/C kit?
4. You mentioned that she charges through the gears when your thrashing it, how is the pull from the upper gears? Are the pulls from 360Nm @ 5800rpm decent with your current tranny?
5. Most importantly...raced an E46 M3 yet??

No problems what so ever. AA Australia has a tune that is specific for our euro spec cars and our fuel grades.

Yes I would say that all the bugs have been exterminated, and I am loving the power and the sound!

1. To be honest I haven't thought about upping the boost yet, but if the transmission dies and I go manual then it would be something to look into.

2. Yes as far as I know the AA kits for the non M cars are all 8 PSI, with the autos normally having 6 PSI.

3. I think the minimum fuel grade is 95 octane but I wouldn't even considder it. I always use 98.

4. I haven't had a chance to really stretch it out yet in the upper gears yet (damn residential area!) so I can't accurately say.

5. No not an M3... yet.

The only thing comparable was an r32 golf, he couldn't keep up.

should be able to take an M3 from a roll

but from dig you wont catch it till your way past the speed limit i rekon

i can outlaunch the C63 quite easily and beat it to the top of 2nd, but then it just leaves me for dead - just not enough traction with the oem "optional" lsd

you have aaron over there, line them up and video it!!!!
