Yup! I'm probably keeping the stock colour (mainly because of cost), but if I do change it, it'll be painted the same grey as gladdo's car but with maybe a bit more metallic fleck in the paint.


...oh, and the wing stays...nobody can convince me otherwise

Turbo

Hey Djconta, after you install the turbo how much boost will you be running @? Also will you have to change anything in the engine (internally) to make your car run smooth ? ie: valves? push rods? pistons?
The reason I ask, because adding a turbo will add more power... do you need to reinforce the motor to take that kinda power?

It's actually a supercharger (looks like a turbo but bigger). I'll probably be running anywhere from 6psi to 9psi to start, and my goal is to run 11psi (safely). I'm not doing any engine internal stuff except maybe injectors, but if I need it, I'll change things, but until there's a problem I don't see the need to. When you install kits like active-autowerkes kit or dinan's kind, you don't need to change any internals, so I figure I shouldn't need to either.
For turbo applications though, it all depends on how much boost you want to run. I think anything over 11psi you should at least change the headgasket to a thicker one or reinforce something.

I'm not sure, but I don't think so. Downing Atlanta sells a kit and doesn't mention the need to change the internals of the engine. I think this goes for most supercharger kits for bmws; they're much safer and cheaper to run than turbo setups.
On my 325, if I change anything, it'll be the headgasket, and injectors.
