3:15 and CDV mods done
 
Wow!!! What a difference ... highly recommended mods. I'm just not used to using 6th gear.

Did my ex 540 a few years ago and loved the quicker acceleration especially the 1-2-3 gears.
Only when I put the old 2.82 gears when I sold the 540 did I feel how slow the acceleration became.
BTW, next on your to do list should be a shortshifter.

Curious?

Who did the mod, R/T Motorsport?
How much for both mods? If you don't mind me asking..

I have been told of Rick and the good work he does, its just that he wants me to book an appointment and I wanted some more feedback before turning over my baby to him..

Fern,
Rick from R/T Motorsport did the work on my ex-540.
I can vouch for his work.
If you talk to him, mention that David with the silver M5 referred you.

David,
This may be your ex-differential that I got ... it's off Archie's car. Short shifter was one of the first mods I got done, Motronix(I don't think I'm spelling it correctly) did it(in Woodbridge).

Fern,
Rick did it, very please with the work and service. I paid $500+tax for the double differential job(one for Archie and one for me).

So, I got dinan CAI, high flow air flow meter, exhaust, some crazy software, 3:15, SS, CDV ... what am I missing (performance wise) besides the supercharger?:confused:

DavidM5 03-03-2004 02:01 PM

Rush,
Was Archie's car a black 99' 540?
I did sell it to someone from this board about 2 years ago with a car fitting that description.
Just out of curiosity, what did you pay for the diff?
Are you interested in doing some lapping days at Shannonville in your car?

Major Mackenzie and Mellville (2 minut walk to the new Fortinos)...

I have heard only good stuff from R/T Motorsport. Good News!

Sounds like there are a few 5er members in the Vaughan area like me, crusher, miguel, etc...

We should have a Vaughan mini-meet some day!

Rush,
Archie had a 98 black 540. $300. I've always wanted to go ... but never did. If you don't mind showing me around, I'd love to go. I have 19s for the summer, will it effect the experience?


What mods have you done to the M? SS I'm guessing, suspension???

Did Motronix install their own SSK on your car or you bought the SSK somewhere else and just got them to install it?

I'm curious because I am thinking of getting a UUC and I came across motronix web site and found they have their own and I'm wondering if anyone has it on their car.

Thanks,

Hi Jos,
This is what I went with:-
They also sell some interesting stuff as well.

Daytona did mine ... they do the distribution and installation for Motronix now. I've had it for over 2 years and very happy with it.

Rogue is considered one of the best SSKs on the market(for bimmers).

Rush 03-04-2004 03:18 PM

http://www.rogueengineering.com/Merc...tegory_Code=PP ... sounds like a good mod. Any experiences? How hard is it to install?

///Greco540 03-04-2004 03:21 PM

If you like rebuilds go for it. Personally I'd stay away from pullies on the M62.

jmalixi 03-04-2004 03:45 PM

DavidM5,
The Rogue SSK is my other choice, along with the UUC EVO3. I'm just curious because Motronix has one for CAN$160, which is a very good price.

Rush,
Just to clarify, is this the SSK you got? (Click on Short Shifters and there's only one for $160)
