  1. There's really no point, a centrifugal super charger like this makes its power at the top end anyway, so any decent turbo will perform and spool up fast enough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So for now this will be my last post, if I end up keeping the super charger I will continue with this build thread, and if things turn towards a turbo I shall start a new thread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Anyway, moving forward now with a forged build, possibly going TURBO if I sell on the super charger kit, but time will tell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Also got a lap in an M1 and E90 M3 which was good fun Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Managed a sub 9 minute lap this year, pretty pleased with that [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Nice to see such a great car being looked after [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Wow what a horrible storey, and totally believable. I have purchased 2 cars from them, both 120i and 120d and both times I said what a shockingly terrible place, but both my cars at the time were around 8k and served us well. The 120d was our 2nd visit, and I was shocked after hearing all the blurb about how it goes through a 100 point check before it goes into the forecourt etc, I opened the bonnet and pulled out a 8" screwdriver that was lying on the engine..... Vowed never again, a year ago I bought an approved used BMW from ARDEN Maidstone, I cannot tell you all how good actual BMW Dealship service. It's worth the extra cost.

  8. I had placed an order for the M140i a while back, gutted I had to cancel my order, lol no storey but they drive amazing, and that B58 engine is great [emoji106] If it were me I'd defiantly buy the M2 though if I could afford it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Mines the same, new genuine BMW gasket and it's still weeping, the after market one I had fitted previously didn't last long either Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I'm in so just hit up some dates guys, Bedford GT circuit is the best one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Smashed it out here, got a few sighting laps in this evening, will hook up the camera over the weekend for some fast footage hopefully [emoji106][emoji108] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Fitted a non armrest centre console last night. Off to the Nurburgring today, will update over the course of the week [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Another Clubsport on the site, looks nice, manual or auto ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Bedford really looks like the best all rounder then guys [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Finally able to log back in again to the forum. It's going well, all cats removed, exhaust really isn't loud at all, will get a video up at some point. Have been busy tuning with George Gelashvili, but unfortunately hit a few setbacks. 1st issue was the timing kept retarding, traced that back to the gearbox exhaust hanger, at high RPM only there was a vibration that was causing the knock sensor to activate. After that was sorted, 2nd issue was again at higher RPM the MAF sensor was over compensating and in turn the fueling was massively rich, that turned out to be the recirc valve was letting by and causing air to be blow back through the MAF, so fitted a FORGE recirc valve to cure that. And finally after lots of mapping sessions we've reached the limit of my 330cc injectors. So for now I'm still running 8psi but the clubby is pulling harder than ever. I'm off to the Nurburgring on Thursday so upon my return I'll throw in bigger injectors and continue to chase 400bhp [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Perhaps look at some dates for the GT circuit at Bedford then guys ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Snetterton is good value for a good track, Bedford GT circuit is another worthwhile one. Brands Indy is small and the GT circuit too dam expensive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I'm off to the Nurburgring 24th August for a week so none booked Aug/Sep for me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Use Tapatalk app to hose pictures easily mate, Photobucket has crushed all platforms now as no one can see the images Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Yes I like the sleeper feel, I'm also running a supercharged 330 [emoji108] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Sounds great, there's a good website here for diff ratios http://www.bokchoys.com/differential/GearRatios.htm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. If the decals are factory leave them on. The car is superb, great find, would you share what you paid for it ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Dreading the day mine breaks too [emoji24] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Yeah it's incredibly annoying, even trying to research how too's etc has become almost impossible now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. I've just swapped mine from a 5 to a 6 as running a higher ratio final drive and wanted better cruising speeds.You need gearbox, propshaft, mounts, and all the gearstick and brackets plus clutch and flywheel, inc flywheel bolts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I think you mean a lower final drive ratio [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Higher number, lower ratio [emoji106] 2.93:1 and I'm now at 3.23:1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
