lol I didnt know it was you...lol
PM me your number I will swing by to see ya!

BTW guy's I dynoed the car tonight Keep in mind the motor is 13 years old and that it is completely stock.

I made 236 RWHP at 60xx RPM corrected it gives me about 246 RWHP
I could have done higher but at high RPM's the octane dropped (91 of Québec shit gaz)
with VP racing fuel I could get and extra 10 to 15 RWHP
the printer was down they will email me the dyno sheet so I will be able to put it up here and show you guy's the numbers. very nice curbe to.

At my big surprise the car is still in perfect shape and running really strong. I did a compression test this morning and it's still 192 (lowest) to 195 (highest) PSI on all 6 cyl.

thanks for dropping bye

But i do have a question

When in traffic my bimmer starts to overheat the fan won't start unless i'm moving.
Do I need to install a switch for the fan? Or is it something else?

Change ta clutch de ton fan (beltdrive) ou sinon c'est ton thermostat qui est bloqué

Je connais un gars qui est allé chez VSR pour faire poser son SC kit AA sur son E46, il semble sortir de bon chiffres. Reparle moi de cette shop la

PM moi les specs que tu vas faire sur ton block, j'y songe moi meme aussi un jour mais pas pour aller FI

Tu as fait flarer en arrière, ou as tu pris tes pieces, c'est des fenders de M3 E46 ?

hey guy's I was thinking could it be my water pump that failed???
thermostat the car would get stuck on cold...
and the clutch fan is free...

so after ready a few things the water pump is the only logical thing left. if the impeler is broken the thread was saying that the coolant would not reach the motor when the car is running...but when rolling the fan is turn as wind is hitting it...could this make sense???

Ok after checking all my system I ended up flushing my coolant and all is perfect so I'm guessing it was just bad coolant I'm happy to see that I didn't need to change any parts.

I will upload also pics from my rally this weekend across the Quebec province.
