I thought I had taken some, but I must not have, they weren't on my phone, but I think I can get some if I take out the airbox and stick my camera down in there and angle it under the intake manifold. The airbox comes out pretty easily, so I don't mind. I will follow up with that this weekend and post a few updated photos.

I will also take a few more pics of the bin, and show some better pictures of where I bolted in the brackets I made, and how it all fits in there. The reservoir just slides out of its bracket, and should reveal a few more details.

Thanks!

My only worry right now is the radium catch can being located in the bin. I really don't want to get rid of it

Finally a SMG lockdown! I think making a kit would be profitable if anyone wants to do it.
1. Fab wiring harness
2. Sell the braided lines with correct connectors
3. CSL SMG reservior
4. Fab new relocation brackets

I believe VinceSE was working on that. He was shooting for January but I assume his subframe kit is consuming all his time.

Correct. I will be receiving one of his first kits since the temps go up to 50c here. it'll be a great environment for testing.

Absolutely amazing. Thank you. I am waiting for. Burkhart replacement motors to come back in stock and then I want to do this.

Oh definitely, I suspect my pump will eventually need at least the accumulator replaced, possibly the motor (on a long enough timeline, all of these pump's will need some sort of upkeep), and having it in an easy to get to location was also a driver for the relocation. Now if I need to swap something out, it's so much easier to get to!

That actually brings up a question I have, please, if anyone knows, fill me in! I am wondering what the normal duty cycle of the pump is? Phrased differently, how many shifts should you get out of a single running of the pump motor in its pressurization of the accumulator?

I noticed yesterday, when driving with the windows down and the radio off, I could actually hear when the pump motor was running (just a slight whirrrr). It seems like mine is giving me 2-3 shifts between each time the motor kicks on, and it runs for about 3 seconds. I don't know if that frequency and duration is normal or not though? I don't have any codes, and all my shifts are nice and smooth. I'm just paranoid about such things I guess ;-)

The Burkhart wiki doesn't mention any duty cycle info, nor does the SMG manual from BMW. I have an updated GT1 and DIS installation DVD I got off ebay, and I know they have a pump test function that you can run, but haven't installed them yet (my current install is just INPA, WinKFP, and two other tools I haven't used). I need to install that and test it properly I guess...
