But what I have done is the following.

Cleaned MAF, This procceedure on about 15 or so connectors. ( have yet to do the Intake cam sensor) http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...781&highlight=, latest ECU update, cam bolt swap (might have properly re-set VANOS timing? I used the BMW timing tool), RL trans fluid, new fuel filter, and a 5:1 ratio of 2 cycle marine TC-W3 oil in the gas tank.

That's it. I should ad that the car was put in dyno mode. Allowing a 8k redline. Otherwise it would have stopped at 6300rpm and gave a readout of about 270~hp.

Thats a good run i got almost 270hp and 236tq with mine but that was at 6300rpm. I didn't know how to disable the dsc at the time. Kind of wondering what i wouldve made. only mods are k&n drop in filter with elbow and titanium exhaust also have high mileage well over 130,000 miles. We calculated 280hp using a formula in class, so it did come close to it, if it had went to 8k rpm. Congrats on the dyno run.

Thanks!

Another M3 was there and on his first run it only went up to 6300rpm and he made 272hp, then I put the DME into Dyno mode for him allowing him to hit 8k..

look again.



I just noticed I was sent .jpg's (In hp/mph instead of hp/rpm) and also instead of the .drf files; I had asked. I've had a bit of trouble getting what I'm asking for from them.

My friends M3 also had a K&N intake system. but no other maintenance done to the engine besides fresh oil.

Those are good numbers. Very similar to mine. I did 297whp and 249tq earlier this year. I will try to locate my graph to post.
