Default Re: OEM Plus Eurospec M3 Build

The Euro M engine runs HOT.

No seriously. Whrn I just had my car and opened the hood after a drive, I was like,,I overheated it. Of course I didn't.

It's a high compression 'race'-ish motor. And these headers, will radiate lots of heat.

Hell, after a normal quasi-spirited drive, even the strutbrace is very hot. Don't worry about it. It's perfectly normal.

The Euro M gauge is less buffered. I coded the M buffer in my 328i. I did some tests a few years ago, to test how the needle works. With NCS you can code whatever temp you want to be the centre spot, and at what temp it comes out of it.
