Man do I love driving this car. Drives like stock in day to day cruising, but step on the accelerator and the thing roars like 10 lions in unison. It sounds like it wants to eat up everything in its path...

Here are some pics...

I can get over the sound of the CAI @ WOT.. I litterally think I can make people in their cars beside me piss in their pants when I go WOT...

I cleaned my engine bay today using simple green. Here's a pic...

Yeah, I believe the Hamaan headers have been quoted of giving the 540i's an additional 35 horse. I know it sounds like bs, but I know I read it somewhere. I supposed for $2200 USD, they better be damn good.

WOW!!!!
thats incredible, to have 270 at the wheels would only be a dream come true, and you've suceeded to pull that off with pretty much just a CAI!!!

I'm getting my camcorder back today so I'll make one up this week.

Headers on a 540 yield that much gains, but the Hamanns are more race style headers (4-1 on each side) so you lose some low end grunt with them. They actually sell for close to $3000US. The G-Power headers are the one's I'm most interested in. The have a torque design (4-2-1 on each side) which gives a lot more down low along with the 35hp. They run for around $2500US.

Wait a second... you ACTUALLY got 6 HP from a CAI?!? I never thought that was possible...

I would NEVER have believed it if it wasn't for the dyno.

And 9 lb/ft of torque, and that's to the wheels...
