So the buyer that wanted to buy the car before xmas did not come through. So I decided to fit all the goodies. Have 2 more guys that's interested in the car.
Fitted the Spacers. Fronts is 5mm and rear is 12mm.
My before and after pics looks real shite so I'm posted the rear ones only.
Right side rear
Left side rear
I also fitted the 4 boost housing seals on the boos pipes. I did not take any pics of that.
The came the fun part. Fitting meth to a BMW is moer baie work!
I went for a Universal Cool Boost Stage 2 Progressive kit. We wanted to play around with the nozzles to see what will work the best.
Opped of a CB5 nozzle in the end.
This is where I wanted my bottle and pump to be.
So we decided to get a Lion and some ply wood.
So it ended up looking like this
Next up was to get the meth line all the way to the engine bay. So we stripped all the panels at the bottom of the car. Removed the front bumper to get to the cooler.
And you'll need something cold to help you focus.
Tapped the meth into the cold side on the cooler
Tapped for boost into the hot side of the cooler.
Then we installed the non-return valve and the fault switch.
Vacuum line. Note its red in most of the pics. On the first run without meth the line popped off, so we took some cable ties as we could not found small enough clamps. Second try the line burst. So we bought a new line(blue one from XXX Centurion).
Next up was all the wires. We needed to check what wires needs to stay at the back and which of them needs to go to the front.
All tucked away
Sticked down with double sided tape till I can make up my mind where I want to put it.
Also have a on/off switch.
After everything was sorted on the car, we took it for a run without meth to check that everything is fine. After the two fail attempts it was time to open up the meth kit. Testing was done with water only.
Intake temps managed to drop from 40 degrees to 34 degrees in just 2 gears. So i was very happy as this was the main reason I went with a meth kit.
Before that run
After the run
And then my mate fulled her up and gave me some spare meth
We went to the dyno as well. Managed to gain 9wkw and 40nm with the meth turned on on the second run(no time to adapt)
I also did a service on the car. The following was changed:
5.2l Liqui Moly 4100 Oil
Keithan did the stage 1 gearbox flash on Friday as well.
Now time for Stage 2 or 3 with new update file.
Thanks to all that helped me with the car! Really appreciated it
