Had my 07' on my buddys table for a small fee. Bone stock drive train 35.58 horse power 24.7 Ft lbs torque. I've got 12,000 mi on it. I raced an 08 in a couple of drags last season on pavement him just past break in and we were shadows of one another. Oh yahh! And the torque goes straight across the board. "response everwhere"

The airbox problem of spinning bolts is an easy $2.00 fix, that takes 10 minutes and fixed forever. Just use metal hose clamps that you tighten with a screwdriver around the round plastic parts to stop the nut spinning inside the plastic. Simple.

I think this is more of a preventative measure. Good idea though.

Chain

What size chain does the TE610 take? I am in Mexico and I have a 525 lined up, but it looked too big. Do I take the 520? I am at the BMW dealer in Cancun and they dont know much.

Post here and P.M. me so I get the answer.

Thank you.
