  1. Suspenceful's 2008 BSM 135i build thread!

    Thanks everyone! I don't wanna let you down, so I put together a brief build update and showed off my new single turbo kit. First time doing something like this, so let me know what you think!

    Pitty post. YouTube just changed its monetization policy, now requiring 1,000 subscribers to be eligible for ad revenue. I’m only at 471 subscribers, can you help me by subscribing to my channel? www.youtube.com/c/jakespence135 I promise it’ll be worth it! I have some cool videos on there about my 135i and will be posting tons of videos once I have my new Doc Race 6266 single turbo kit installed.

    Thanks Jordan! Yes, eventually I'd like to get an MFactory LSD in there. I think that will be one of the last pieces to this puzzle. I'd like to upgrade the suspension as well.

    Yup, been running full E85 for a while now. Yeah, I'd go with a set of PURE turbos or the MMP twins I had. I wouldn't sacrifice the lag at that power level.

    Nice! I had MMP Stage 3 twins at 28psi before this, which was probably about 625whp. I could get tire spin in 3rd, so I'm sure it'll be the same case with this new setup. Eventually I need to upgrade from my 265 PSS to something stickier. I am running a port injection kit with two Walbro 450s and a larger fuel line. The goal is 700whp, but I'll probably tone it back to about 650whp for my everyday map.

    Since someone asked me "why go single now, after having upgraded twins" on another forum, I figured I'd post the answer here as well. The biggest reason is because I don't want to have to do all of this work ever again. If one of the twins took a shit, I'd have to drop the subframe to remove everything and replace it. Now I'll have one turbo that can go bad, instead of two... and it'll be a lot easier to access if it does go bad. Aftermarket N54 twins aren't known to be reliable anyways. They also pile in torque down low. While it feels awesome, it's tough on the motor. I don't want to replace another motor. A larger single turbo should be a little easier on the motor. I wasn't "wowed" by the twins. They were definitely faster, but it wasn't "OMG CRAZY". I know I'll be sacrificing some spool time, but when the boost hits it's going to feel great. If you're after linear power with modest goals, I think twins are a good choice. But I don't want to be pushing twins to their absolute limit just to achieve my goals. I'd rather put a larger single on and give it a lighter workout. I would still recommend the MMP twins, but I think I'll enjoy the single more. Plus, who doesn't like the look and sound?

    It's on the manifold. DOCRACE. The lighting makes it difficult to read, but looks really nice in person.
  8. Suspenceful's 2008 BSM 135i build thread!

    Something was left on my doorstep today! I'm honestly blown away by the quality and craftsmanship of this kit. The attention-to-detail is crazy. I've dealt with a lot of vendors on this platform and this was probably the nicest overall experience I've had. It shipped on time, came complete, and was packaged VERY nicely. I can't say the same about my previous expensive purchases. Super excited to get this installed for spring!

    Boris brought this up yesterday... I almost don't want to know the answer

    This. Unless all of the other boxes are checked for your buddy (color, interior, trans, driveline, condition, etc.)

    FWIW, I've had multiple serpentine belt failures on the variety of E82 and E9X cars I've owned. None of them got sucked in through the front seal. It CAN happen, but isn't the common result. For peace of mind, I'd inspect and replace the belt if you see any wear signs. Doesn't hurt to replace OFH gaskets if it is seeping or weeping oil. Over time, the oil can drip on the belt and that isn't good. I did the oil pan gasket on my 135i when the subframe was down while replacing turbos. It was leaking. I think the valve cover gasket was seeping as well. Both should be inspected. When you change the valve cover gasket, inspect the cover itself. They are plastic and can have very small cracks (bad), or can be warped. It is best practice to replace the cover and the gasket at the same time... even though it hurts the wallet.

    Awesome. Maybe this was to deter any skepticism about the new M5 being AWD.

    My old coilovers live on, lol. They didn't ride very good when I installed them (new), I'm curious how they ride now that they have a lot of miles and with the different rear struts. Sorry to see the fender carnage.
  14. Nice! I didn't want to make a comment about the tint before, glad you removed it. I tried doing this on my old E36 and failed miserably.
