I have the Supercharged! book too, Maxbell, somewhere. And a couple others that would be good to read through, like Forced Induction Performance Tuning: best book on the subject for me.

Finished power brakes..just need to bleed the brakes. Also finished my ram air (my filter was way to close to the MAF and getting to much hot air from under hood) now its located behind front kidney.

I also bought another E30 another amazing frame for my next e30 project also not plated but all original (just needs ball joints , rear brakes to safety) next saturday me and DannyB will be parting out the 535i E34 keeping the engine/tranny for my second E30 (winter project)

busy doing boxes for my move but I may be able to also do my Electric Power steering project I will see how much time I have...

Long time no updates...finally all moved in but I could not resist in going to see my friend Arek from www.8legsracing.com race at the trois riviere grand prix.





Here is is posing with my 12 year old Nicolas, it was his first time at the races he loved it.

























Pic of me and my son in front of yet another very cool and powerfull BMW  at the grand prix.





So I decided on these little mini project on my car to make it a better street machine.





-Sound proofing I made a custom sound blanket (removable) and added insulation on the hood and inside the dash.


-Also relocating my throttle body to make it the way a roots type is really suppose to work (I had issues with drivability and with 10-12 PSI no way a BOV or multiple BOV would work....plus the sound is way too much) so this decrease the sound by a LOT and with no BOV drivability will be much better. Its a lot more work but much worth it.

























And here you can see the location of my electric PS with the high and low pressure attached (just have to make a mount for it)



After I finish these 2 mini project I will install my big custom 7" pulley and look for a 6 rib belt and then am off to the drags (my goal is 2 weeks) then let the fun begin

Long time no update... raison why? Well my PS rack blew as soon as I actived the EPS. What to expect from a 20+ year old PS rack.



I also installed my new 130A alternator (the old 70A was on its way out anyways) and I needed the extra power for the EPS and new sound system.





Last but not least I installed my new 7" 6 rib pulley and sourced a nice Good year Gatorback belt for it..took a good 4 different belts to find one and only mod to the tensioner was a reversed install and its nice and tight now making almost 9PSI





Only thing missing now is Tuning...tuning...tuning... and get ready to pass the provincial safety.



Dyno sheet and video coming up soon...as I get an appointment.







stay tuned...

So to prepare for the abuse of tuning I did an oil change 20w50 Castrol dino oil with a Mobil1 filter and BPR8ES NGK sparkplugs.

I got 3/4 of the tuning done and finally working on WOT.... Full throttle my SC unleashed 12 PSI in less then 1/2 second... running 16 degrees of timing on 91 octane no detonation so Im clear to go to the dyno EXCEPT the damn Clutch slave is leaking now...

I still cant believe my exedy clutch can hold this amount of power...and survived all the detonation of street tuning..

I can send you my timing map if you'd like to compare it to yours. I've been to 15psi on 91 octane, no detonation.
