Disa changes phlemum size not runner diameter and exhaust has nothing to do with fuel I was referring the the intake on that subject

According to your perspective on headers by that logic it should run the best with no header or exhaust at all..give that a try n lemme know how it works

All the mods that this thread brought up would show improvement on a f/I setup. Without a doubt N/A your loseing power moving the powerband up to an unreachabke level for a stock head

What are you talking about?! He's comparing the stock headers to equal length headers. IDK where you learned to read...

BROKENBIMMER,

I'm not in an argumentative mood tonight, so I won't argue anything. But since "everything" is hidden under your hood (referring to the nitrous), please write today's date & "BROKENBIMMER" on a piece of paper & take one GOOD photo of it sitting next to your ZEX bottle in your trunk with your smart phone. Then come back inside & upload the photo to E46Fanatics.


If you can't do this Tonight, I, nor anyone else on E46F will ever believe anything you ever say.


Thanks,

Rob43

Have a read of this POST...You clearly have no idea how a two-stage manifold works and the cross-section differences between the M52TU and M54 runners.

Ok then I apologize I was lacking some reading comprehension on that one as I thought you were talking about the exhaust side.

It changes the length of the intake runners (I never said diameter). I don't know what you're calling a plenum unless you're referring to the intake mani itself, as what is generally referred to as a plenum is generally a plastic upper intake manifold on most two-piece intake manifolds. (Think Fords, and some GM's.)

The idiot that does it will burn every single exhaust valve.

Its not my perspective either, it fluid and thermodynamics.

Since you only have about 50 plus posts, you could change your name to "FIXEDBIMMER" & nobody would know better. A fresh start.....might just be the ticket for you.




Good luck.

PS. Where's that pic. ?

Because your numbers are complete BS! How can you not realize this?

A ZHP has 235 est at the crank. Dynos show an average of 205 whp. Difference of 30 hp.

How does a stock, 13 year old 328i, that made maybe 193 at the crank brand new, dyno 10 horsepower less at the wheels? Your numbers are not accurate at all. The only purpose it would serve is as a tuning tool. You're as dense as they come.

I'll stick to what I've learned from working in shops, my physics and engineering classes, from the real Master Techs that I have worked under, and from reputable racers and engine builders. Thanks for the offer though.

If you want to teach us a lesson from your bullshit encyclopedia, create your own thread.

Seems like you're getting frustrated and losing your ability to write coherent statements. Vote for new name to be GRADUALDOUCHEBAG...Seems educated at first then starts break down to real life behavior.

I've tried to explain this to you already. The problem with this approach is that you would lose the extra velocity built into having exhaust exit tubes (scavenging effect). Not to mention the pulse tuning gained by proper engineering and design of premium grade headers (not claiming this is what you get with ebay). Also as mentioned before, after shut down, the cold air rushing into the engine with no heat buffer built up in the exhaust manifold would not be benefitial to your valve's health

The velocity of exhaust gasses is key. Not back pressure.

You know, I think you guys are being a little hard on this guy. He actually has a basic grasp on how an engine works. Verdict is still out on his credibility though.

I agree, there is no need for name calling. I take more issue with the claims being made, it dilutes and pollutes the knowledge base these forums provide.

I would still like if you could explain how what I have said is incorrect. I would like to present accurate information the same as I expect it from others.
