Technique Tuning Stage 1 Turbo on an automatic

Yup, I'm putting a turbo kit on the "grocery" car.

The car: 2001 330I with freshly rebuilt automatic transmission

The plan: Turbo + 4.10 LSD

I unpacked the turbo kit yesterday and was extremely impressed with the quality of ALL of the components supplied. I don't know how Nick puts this kit together for $7k, because it would cost me a lot more to build it at my shop.

Pictures to follow shortly.

4.10 diff? It'll be a rocket! The speed at which it will go through gears will make you thankful it's an auto ;-)

But it's an interesting thought... given the good low end of the turbo, I'd say a more aggressive diff isn't really needed.

My Ride: E46 330ci Turbo
I absolutely love my ZHP turbo w/automatic. Running the factory 3.64 gears makes it super fun in 1,2, and 3 gears. Using a 4.10 with the automatic will make your car fly in 4th and 5th gear too on the highway. Enjoy!

I like steep gears, it's a "race car thing", and this car is simply another toy for me.

I have the diff already sitting at the shop, it was just a matter of having new output flanges machined. (Being done right now)

I'm really excited to see what this kit can do with the automatic. It's going to be a completely different type of driving experience for me.

How would it cost more to build that setup yourself? just curious because I could get all the parts for much less than 7k and tuning for about 1500

Have you ever seen this kit in person before being installed?

I've got the 330i on the trailer; going to the drag strip for the next 2 days to get some baseline numbers and have some fun.

Pre-install dyno session is planned for Tuesday.
