Re: Valve adjustment issue after 288/280 cam install

Didn't SliM3 have a similar issue? Sounds to me like there is a mistake in the head build.

The shameful part is that we've had the discussions but the puppet masters have shrugged and decided there's nothing that can be done. Can't even muster up the votes for a bumpstock ban, which was...

Re: Inauguration Watch

So if the Japanese PM dumped his box first, you wouldn't have followed his lead? Because that is what happened.

Re: Streamline & Dr M3an M3's CSL Airbox Development Journal Collaboration

Right, but why is a 2-3% hp increase so important to have immediately after a heat-soaked condition? It would only make sense to me for drag racing at the strip. On a road course, heat soak from...

Trump taking advantage of this situation to further his immigration agenda is a different topic than how the terror label is used. Trump does enough dumb shit on his own. No need to conflate things...

Exactly. These were marketed like a pump and dump part: make outrageous claim, back it with self-sourced test results, then sell as many as possible until the truth comes out. It's hard to not...

Re: Streamline & Dr M3an M3's CSL Airbox Development Journal Collaboration

Don't the IAT's go up in stagnant air but fairly quickly go back down to near ambient once moving? Seems like all the focus should be between the block and the intake/runners. Trying to fight high...

Re: What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?

Sounded like an S85 to me, but I turned Wheelman off pretty quickly so I might have heard something else.

Re: What's up M3Forum: TheSt|G's Dream Car

The wagon's torsional stiffness comes with a center of gravity penalty that might be clouding the senses.

Re: Official Dyno Thread

Also a shame they didn't re-use the same tire to avoid creating unnecessary variables with tire weight and diameter.

Re: What's your view on superchargers?

The vbox eliminates variables (hood open/closed, heat soak, etc) as it is directly measuring the acceleration of the car on the road and not the acceleration of a drum inside a shop. So, yes, if all...
