    Suspenceful's 2008 BSM 135i build thread!

    My tune ramps up timing to redline. It gradually increased to 9* at 7k RPMs. If it senses knock, it will pull timing until the knock goes away.

    Yes, most times they started between 110-130*F, then dropped during the pull and eventually rose up a bit at the top end. Never really exceeded 140*F.

    I plastidipped them black the night before leaving. Better than the dirty factory finish, in my opinion. Just got back from a long weekend. The event was great, but very hot. Real-feel of 110-115* and very humid both days. I was very careful with the car, turned down the boost and didn't make a ton of passes. Had a few hiccups, but still a solid turnout. Stay tuned for a video soon! Sometime in the next month! It won't be anything crazy because all I have is GoPro footage from the event.

    I already picked up a spare set to keep on hand, lol. I asked. She said no. Lol... I just updated original post with more info on where I got them.

    Had a bit of an issue with the cheap eBay wheels, so @Tkuhn sold me a pair of rear Style 68 wheels from an E46. My girlfriend wouldn't let me steal some from her car. They're one of the only available wheels that have a high enough offset with some decent width. I'd still like a 9.5" wheel instead of these 8.5", but they'll work. The MT radials are on and it's a very tight fit. Any opinions on color? I am going to clean them up and spraybomb them tonight. Silver, gray, black or red?

    I'm excited to see this come together with your spin on it.

    Which M3 is Best M3?

    For you Snap, an E90 M3. Get an LCI if you can, looks much better IMO. After driving @MPW3RLee's for a day, I'd love to have one as a daily driver/weekend car. The ultimate family sedan, unless you've got M5 money.

    I just ordered some cheap 17" wheels and a pair of Mickey Thompson ET Street R tires on eBay to take full advantage of their 20% sitewide sale today. LSD is next

    I did the same thing on my car

    Nice. The wear sensor wires are probably shorted. If you cut off the sensor and twist/solder/crimp the wires together, the light goes away.

    Thanks guys! I'm very happy/impressed with the car. I have some 275 Federal 595RSRR to try on my current wheels. The MPSS I have currently are actually really good at holding the power for a street tire. I'll be getting a set of 17" wheels to put an Mickey Thompson ET Street tire on.

    I finally strapped my 135i onto the dyno this weekend and am thrilled with the results. I can't find a higher published power output from a Precision 6266 on an N54! Now I need to put my Draggy to use so I can see how fast it really is... I did a handful of pulls at various power levels and attached the logs below. This should give everyone a good idea of what a properly set-up 6266 can do from low boost to high boost on an N54. All pulls done in 4th gear (manual transmission). DynoJet with STD correction. 749whp, 643wtq @ 29psi - https://datazap.me/u/suspenceful/dyno-749whp 708whp, 609wtq @ 26psi - https://datazap.me/u/suspenceful/dyno-708whp 658whp, 554wtq @ 21psi - https://datazap.me/u/suspenceful/dyno-658whp 552whp, 495wtq @ 16psi - https://datazap.me/u/suspenceful/dyno-552whp 453whp, 422wtq @ 11psi - https://datazap.me/u/suspenceful/dyno-452whp Watch the video above for speedo & exhaust angles... plus lots of awesome turbo noises. I also explain a lot of stuff as I'm dynoing the car. Let me know what you think!

    2018 AutoX Events

    My girlfriend mention trying her hand at her first auto-x at the July event in Shawano. She'd be driving her E46. Maybe I'll co-drive it or take the 135i.
