Re: BMW E46 M3 DINAN S2 - One Take

7lbs on 91 octane. Stock internals so I didn't opt for an e85 map, which they predicted would give me 700whp. 467whp is plenty for me until I build the bottom end

Re: Coolant : how to mix ?

I gave it a shot after the turbo install, and the car actually runs colder than it did when it was N/A. I asked Andrew Lang about it before I made the decision, and he runs it in all his race cars.

Not sure how much a new hose is for a 2002 but for the newer models, that hose is $$$$$. For a hose, that is.

Re: Possible Starter Issue

Tested the battery again.

Car OFF: 12.02v (which is apparently not good, 12.75v would mean the battery is fully charged)

Car CRANKING: 8v

Re: Possible Starter Issue

If that is the case, is it the battery or alternator? Could it possibly be a bad ground somewhere? Then again I don't know why that would cause it to only start part of the time..

They probably are knockoffs, unless someone bought these in bulk years ago when HPF was still in business only to turn around and sell them at half price lol
