Yeah had it Monday by noon

runs great, but inline with my luck it needs some more tweaking..

^ funny how a half to 1inch in piping diameters can shift your powerband higher (hp/ tq)

pretty sure thats from the turbo to the intercooler..

It's very easy provided your electric AC fan still works. Just need the temp switch from a M44 or a M3 plug & play (may have to shave a plastic nubby off the switch). Cooler T-stat wouldn't hurt either.

I don't know if they make a kit for your car specifically, but Zionsville makes a wicked kit for the E39, and I'm pretty sure they make one for your car. It's their superduty cooling system. All aluminum, no plastic. Two speed electric fan. Larger capacity Rad etc. Plus it looks pretty.

hmm have you done it before..? willing to help? cause Im clueless!
i could get temp switch tomorrow..
and my ac worked fine before some dudes leaked it all out on me (way back)

also tempted to see if cdn tire has any of those Ate 'slotted rotors' for my car too..
my bro had those on his e30, they lasted.

Oh so what can happen if the fan fails besides overheating..? flying blades into rad??

Read here to see what happens when the fan goes...
Hole in hood, and thousands of dollars of parts destroyed under the hood. Not pretty
