BMW 135i 1/4 Mile 11.763 @ 119.88mph

I went to Cayuga Dragway with a number of other BMW guys yesterday. The car was running extremely strong. Following is the time slip of the run (right hand lane).



Car setup was as follows:
  • JB3 2.0 on Map 10
  • BMS DCI
  • AMS FMIC
  • AR 3" C@tless Downpipes
  • BMW Performance Exhaust
  • MS109 Race Gas
  • Mickey Thompson ET Street Drag Radials set at 25psi
  • Passenger Seat and Rear Bench Removed

Track conditions were:
  • Density Altitude Rating: 1229
  • Track Elevation: 630 feet
  • Temperature: 69.8 F
  • Relative Humidity: 46%
  • Barometric Pressure: 30.27

I dynoed the car last week on this same setup (minus the DRs, seats in and MS103 instead of MS109) graphs below:

Target boost levels were 17.5 - 18psi. I was watching the ignition timing on race gas during my dyno runs and they were perfect so the engine was performing extremely well. MS109 race gas is critical.

The N54 is a horse of an engine but I certainly do not run this daily, I basically run stock boost on the streets.

Cool, it only takes one time though so keep an eye on things, pull your plugs weekly, look for signs, temperature changes etc.

Do they offer a way to beef up your IRS at all, I know with the IRS on the cobra we used to just swap it out for the live axle but not an option for you yet, or is it?

Yep no options for our cars as of yet. I will continue to keep an eye out for any signs. Thanks.

I'm trying to remember if I saw your car... we saw some modded cars that we thought for sure were coming back from cayuga.

The v10 is fun on those 2 lane roads on the way there

but it was even more fun on the track with the two v10s!
