    Nice ride. Looked into getting the same generation myself. The 328i stock on jb4 + e85 is putting down 300whp/350tq, which is pretty decent in my opinion.

    i just installed my JB4 Stage 2, currently running map 2 which peaks at 23psi. Waiting for my ER catless downpipe to come in. Soon as it comes in im installing it and i will be taking it to get a few pulls on the dyno and see where im at with all my mods. Im guessing around 310-325 seeing other people run the same setup im running.

    i dont wanna run E85, i might do methanol later on down the road so all my parts ive put on are compatible with doing that.

    My Evolution Racewerks 4" catless downpipe finally came in. Will be installing it tomorrow night after work. Dyno pulls to come within the next couple of weeks.

    Don't you love parts that are almost too pretty to install?

    ugggh this day cant go fast enough at work...6 more hours and im out this bitch....wanna hurry up and get home so the exhaust/engine can cool down so i can start working on it.

    The nice thing about the engine bay layout is you will be able to see 3/4 of this downpipe because of the way and where they placed the turbo...so it will look good in the engine bay. I almost went with black but the brushed looked better IMO on the exhaust pieces.

    Very nice, I agree that running e85 24/7 may not be practical. You should be able to achieve very generous numbers with the bolt ons and jb2. I believe you would give an e46 m3 a very good run for its money and probably would leave it in the dust once you get a methanol setup.

    Yeah I was walking on Mustang 5.0s with just the intake and stage 1 tune. Now with all my mods and stage 2 tune they won't even 60 foot me anymore. I'll be ahead by then and walking away at a quick pace. Once I add methanol to it to turn on on the fly then I'll be going after some bigger fish.

    the old DP next to the new....freaking huge ass cat on the old DP. The car has a nice sound to it now. Next up will be exhaust, not sure which route im going yet. I might just do the M series exhaust with diamond black tips. Remus is the other option im considering. Price wise they are about the same, gains are minimal, getting exhaust would just be to compliment the sound of the catless DP i installed a couple weeks ago. Havnt had time to dyno anything yet. Got to race a buddy in his Camaro SS the other day though, he has full bolt ons. We were dead even the whole way up to 100 when we shut it down. Im happy with the gains so far.

    Also will be putting in the M3 spark plugs this weekend, the current ones are having a hard time handling the mods ive done already. The M3 ones should be able to handle anything i can throw at them.

    Sounds impressive. I bet you also have a slight weight advantage over the Mustangs/Camaros.

    Did you pay around $250 for the trim around the windows?

    Swapped my spark plugs out for the M3 spark plugs because i was having some issues under high boost. Now with the colder plugs everything is running smooth all the way through the power band under full boost. Loving it!!
