My ESS TS2 install, it all starts NOW! :)

As some of you may know, I purchased Elio's TS2 kit. For those who haven't been following along:

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=518834




Had my baseline dyno run today. After the first pull and smoke coming out of the left rear wheel,maybe the strap was on the exhaust. Hmmm.

Second run, coming to the end car maxs out at 150hp now theres flames shooting out of my caliper wtf?? Jack up the car, wheel spins freely. Maybe the ebrake was stuck.

Next run, coming to an end the rotor is glowing red, real nice red flames coming out of my caliper.....
Take the wheel off, brake pads look fine. Take my brand new cross drilled rotor off that is now a nice glazy looking color, what do we find??? The smoldering remains of the ebrake pad....clean everything up, here's the results. One run in 4th, one in fifth. I guess these first runs all should have be done in 4th since it hits top speed in 5th before it hits redline, duh! Such a noobie on this stuff but oh well! Does this look normal/good? Car has 68K on it completely stock....old plugs, coils, fuel filter and fuel pump. All these items will be replaced in the process.

Started the project today! Since the car had 68K on it, I replaced the fuel pump, plugs, boots and coils. Still need to replace the fuel filter......

I then removed the ECU to send out to ESS. Then I took the bumper off and mounted the intercooler and pump. Here are some pics:

What's up Fern!

If you need help with anything, be sure to let me know! I'm not mechanically inclined at all, but I'd love to watch.

Hopefully everything goes smooth for you.

Good Luck, wondering when you were going to start

Power wise you look fine, even the 4K dip is there.

Make sure you get AFR's next time, it's really the most important part of the dyno run.

Oh and please show us what's behind the hood on the wall

Hey Elio......

I'll make sure that I don't crop "her" out in the next pic. That's an autographed poster of Cheryl Bachman about 15 years ago

Hey Amar...I still have that Zaino sitting here for you too! You have a Benz now? E55, E350, E500? I had an 05 E320 for a couple years....it was white with a blue interior.....Love the white Benz!

Navin......you mentioned the decal for the engine covers ships from somewhere else? Where is that? I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on the carbon fiber covers

I have no idea... ESS is taking care of all that (they just told me that the engine cover decal would ship separately from the S/C and engine cover).

Oh yeah, we'll definitely have to meet up and I'll pick up the Zaino too! I actually got the lowest model Benz they had at the time (C230), but I have big plans for it during the Spring/Summer.

Maybe I'll get my DPE's and coilovers by the time you get the kit up and running, and we can meet up then.

And sorry about butchering your name, I knew it began with an 'f" and ended with an "n".
