My 325ci ESS

Hello guys. It's been 3 years since I got my ESS twin screw kit and supercharged my 325ci. I started with a ts1, serious error, because as many of you told me soon I would like more.

After a while I wanted to increase to 9psi, but for several reasons I could not follow the path of laminova. I did a lot of research on using only methanol and I listened about opinions of you whose said it would not work for several reasons. Also some people who used it without problems from time before.

But in the end I couldn't be quiet and I did it. Once the methanol kit was installed, the problem was finding someone here to make me a new tune in dyno. I got it, but I was not very satisfied, which led me and again thanks to the knowledge of the boys in this forum to try to learn myself.

I still have a lot to know, but here I am.
Right now I am at 11psi for a few months now, I want to increase more again I already bought a rs4 maf and some green giants to apply the ms4xwiki instructions, I hope to get a good job with this.

I share this video, where I realized, although late, that the last bin was flashed bad and the car was running several weeks as an AFR of 14 and 15 in full load, it did not break the engine of pure miracle. Although I think that being winter and methanol helped too.
The methanol kit is the snow cooler stage 3 boost cooler.

Greetings guys, I await your opinions and advice.
