  2. BMW M3 Upgrading brakes and calipers

    I’m running Yellowspeed. Just type it into google,there’s so many options, none are cheap. If you just use your car on road the stock brakes are more than capabke Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yes will be fine, lots of folk run that on track with 255 front and rear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah mate, a tune will defiantly help, drop me a PM if you want details on a remote tuner, makes a lot of difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    These WISECO pistons are just a giant improvement from the stock ones. Oil ring must be 3 times as big too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    550bhp will be a very conservative tune, the engine will be capable of ALOT more, 8-900bhp but that sort of power comes with a complete new set of challenges, chassis and driveline wise. So it’s my fuel system which is my limiting factor as want to keep it stockish, just uprated pump and injectors. Looking for a super power band though, from 3600-7000rpm should see a nice flat torque curve [emoji108][emoji106] Pistons arrived yesterday So whizzed everything down to the machine shop, they are over sized so block needs boring, crank is being polished, head and blocked skimmed too.

  7. Yes that’s right, there is a nice gain to be had, there are actually 4 cats, if you leave the centre ones in you won’t need to have it coded and will still pass emission test come MOT time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Parts are starting to arrive now, so getting excited again, got down to my mates workshop today and done some work to the block. Drilled out the block and tapped some M12 threads in using a flute tap which forms the threads rather than cutting them, makes for a stronger fixing once the steel TIMESERTS are installed and the RACEWEAR headstuds go in. [emoji106][emoji108] Excuse the drill bit getting stuck, typical it only happed on the only hole I filmed lol https://youtu.be/oYmRH6ouEHw Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    And since there’s going to be such a huge power increase, I’ve also taken the time to add some proper brakes, now running 6 pots up front and 4 pots at the rear. Discs all round are 32mm thick 335mm diameter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Keeping original Bonnet, no pipework going over the top of engine either. Unfortunately progress has been slow, the manifold has been scrapped and started over again for various reasons. I’m still waiting on the WISECO pistons also, so no engine assembly has started. I have made the most of this time by cleaning, everything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rods have arrived today, look much stronger than the stock items And for all the keyboard warriors out there that say the stick rods are forged, I can assure you they are not. A forged rod rings like a bell, take a look at this video
