Hi Everyone,
I have a nice '04 330CI ZHP "track" car (50+ days) with many track mods that just turned 105K miles. It's only driven to/from/on-track/and back. It's a looker as it won BMW CCA 2017 Concours d' Elegance 3rd place Modern Super Clean award. A brief list of Track mods include: Dinan intake/exhaust, Dinan tower and shock braces, Supersprint headers, Schrick (272/256) sport camshafts, Epic performance tuned ECU, Volschlag camber plates, Wavetrac (3.46) LSD, Koni Struts/shocks, H&R springs, Hotchkis sway bars, Brembo brakes, Apex wheels, Toyo R888R tires. This car puts out 275HP and 233 at the wheels - (no guessing here as these numbers are Turner Dyno measured). Anyhow, that's my car. Comments welcome!

(hope I posted in right place - if not apologies to all)

Greg

That's a great looking and running zhp! Mystic blue?

So what did the schrick cams give you over the zhp cams? More power at the top end or throughout?

ZHPizza - Thanks for the question and interest. Good eye, yes Mystic Blue! I usually don't do this (forum) so I'm surprised to even get a reply. The Schrick cams were just put in this week as my "treat" for the upcoming track season. Honestly, so far I haven't driven on the track yet with them and have only driven it 20 miles home on the Mass Pike. That said, I can sure feel a boost in the power range starting from 3000 rpm on up (it just keeps pushing strong to redline). So, since I already had a bunch of mods (mentioned in my post) before the cams it was already performing above OEM. So my base numbers were higher at 253HP at crank and 215HP at wheels at about 5700 RPM. The After measurement with the 272/256 Schrick cams showed it putting out 275HP at crank and 233HP to wheels (These are real measurements, not tabletop estimates). During the dyno run it was noted that my current EPIC ECU tune can be adjusted to push another ~10HP out of it (stay tuned next week). So, I'd be happy with a 285HP (measured) 2004 330ci ZHP with 285 at the crank.

Wow that's a solid setup you've got there!

Catless exhaust, right?

I think the only other thing that you could do outside of head work would be a big bore throttle body - in fact I'd be really interested to see what it did for you given the intake and exhaust modifications you've made.

You know what...let me know if the throttle body is something you'd want to try before your next dyno tune...I had some made but haven't tested them yet so they're not officially for sale...

Ha, actually I forgot to mention in my profile that my build already includes a Dinan High Flow Throttle Body!

Ah that makes sense then - you've really helped the engine breathe on both ends!

What a great specimen of the E46. It's interesting to see some performance modifications. Best of luck on the track!
