Thanks. It's a hoot to drive. Think "GoKart with a license plate". I've ordered a piggy back chip that allows me to tune it on the fly, 400HP out of that tiny car.

Even more important is that it has a "Valet" mode that limits it to 4500RPM or a "Econo mode" that shuts down the turbos for when Jr. drives it.

Sounds like fun and a good plan for Jr until he figures that out. My dad and my brother "fixed" my first car as well but since I come from a line of mechanically inclined people it didn't take me long to figure out that the carb wasn't fully opening. A family friend ratted me out when I had it slung sideways coming out of a parking lot.

Michaux Dual Sport

Hi it's Bucco trying to jump in again. Sorry to change the subject - anyone going up to the Michaux DS ON Sunday? I figure to do it in one day. If anyone has been there before, can I get by with my stock Metzeler Tourrances?

Hi. I'm not available this weekend but I think Dan was looking for someone to ride with.

I think most of the stuff up there is gravel and you should be fine on Tourrances. Just air down a little.

Only been there twice but never needed any real off road tires, Dorito did it last weekend with Tourance's with no issues what so ever.

So J4S, when are we going to get the full run down on the new car, what you have done and what is next? I clearly underestimated the one series!!!!!!

The 2010 BMW 135i is equipped with the 3 liter N54 inline 6 cylinder twin turbo charged engine. In stock form this engine puts out 300 hp and 300 lbs/ft of torque. As with most turbo charged engines it's easy to gain massive hp and tq just with a tune of the ECM.

So, I've tuned the engine to run up to 17lbs of boost depending on octane and charge intake temp. So with cool temps and good fuel, I'm currently at about 350hp at the wheels. Near term upgrades include catless downpipes for better breathing(engine=air pump) and a larger more efficient intercooler. This should put me at a reliable 400rwhp.

Maybe at some point I'll go with methanol injection and run E85 which would yield somewhere around 450rwhp. At that point the car would be way over powered for its suspension and drive train. So then it would get a fully adjustable KW suspension upgrade and a quaife limited slip differential. Followed by a roll cage and all the crap that goes with a "track" car.

I highly doubt that I'll go much past 400hp as that would change it from a daily driver to a dedicated track car.
