Oh man those shots look amazing. On side note, what do you think about that rollbar? Thinking of getting one myself..

probably the best bolt in option on the market... it's 1 piece so the install sucks.. otherwise, it's great!

Just got all caught up on your build, Frank. The M3 is coming along great! So glad you've decided to keep it and getting it out there on track.

Did you end up getting rid of the air box? Was it to get something new or because you didn't like it?

Thanks Tony!

I ended up selling the airbox, i regret it but oh well.. i had a hard time wrapping my head around the cost for the little bit of added HP.. I took the money from the airbox and bought the 4.10 gears.. I definitely money better spent there.

That air box price tag is a hard pill to swallow. Still want one though. Haha.

Have you tracked on the 4.10 gears? I've always wondered if the added acceleration makes up for the added gear shifts. I guess it depends on the track...

yeah, definitely a tough one to swallow...

I actually did Lime Rock Park and NY Safety Track, both tracks are on the shorter side, around 2 miles or shorter and the gears were great.. I've noticed placed where I'd sit on top of 3rd, I can be in 4th and carry more speed.

not a ton of updates here.. decided to keep the car as I have a lot going on.. current home is on the market and working toward buying a bigger one so just going to hang onto it for a little longer...

I did go down to Kassel for a retune.. previous tuner forgot to set my o2 readiness monitors so car wouldnt pass inspection in NY and previous tuner also put a little burble on it my car which i hated with a passion..

Kassel was great! Jim, Dan and Matt were great. Their hospitality was top notch and the facility is amazing. Jim is knowledgeable with the s54 and understands the cars and their potential.

The car runs MUCH better than before and we also picked up about 18 wheel hp. My baseline was 262 with my old TTFS tune, and I left Kassel with 280. Their dyno is known for being a heart breaker but to me, the car pulls hard, and the dyno is only a tool. I ran my old tune on my buddy's mustang dyno and it read 320.6 and I did 320 on Frank's dyno as well. I'm going to throw it on my friend's dyno again to get an accurate comparison of gains.

Check out some pictures! (car was filthy from the 4 hour journey in the rain)





Dave's (Dafoe) beast!




Gorgeous e30 and a few other cool cars including the baddass OG camry that I think everyone had at one point lol
