Turbo M3 ride along for a boostaholic in the making

Last thread of GoPro stuff until I get something really fun to post. Picked up a nice stereo mini microphone, OLYMPUS ME-51S, and 12.5 ft extension for the GoPro along with the skeleton case. Ran the cable into the trunk and taped the mic here:



The result, tried to edit out the non interesting stuff this time:



this is much more realistic to what I hear when driving, its pretty tame under part throttle and cruising then rips at WOT.

I will be adding a second mic to the interior if I can, not sure if the GoPro will allow a dual external mic setup but I dont see why not.


and a huge to this, its her own personal rollercoaster:

Good thinking, I've been meaning to purchase a mic and extension cable as well

Your daughters reaction is classic

As a parent myself, I cannot believe you let Kylie not wear the shoulder belt properly

Nice!! A friend has a '99 e36 M3 I've been trying to talk him into to boosting it. What kind of numbers are you making? What turbo kit?

I have been going back an forth about purchasing the skeleton case and an external mic for my GoPro. This video ends that. The car sounds great. I was laughing every time you went WOT. Sounds awesome!

Did you also add a noise canceling adapter to the mic, or is is just out of the box?

I'm working on that. She is not my daughter though I try to treat her as if she is. Love her to death. Her father who is no longer in the picture raised her to wear her belt like that and i'm changing it slowly.

thanks for the concern, seriously.

its a technique tuning stage II kit with just about everything changed. gt35r turbo, i'm out of injector with 42lb injectors at 14psi. I'm running 100% meth in a large quantity to run around 15psi. Should be ~490-500whp on a dynojet. Car weighs 3190. Its a very fun street car, full boost by 3100rpms. Huge torque, with the oversized drag radials its huge fun. larger injectors and retune and it would be solidly in the 500's but for now i'm saving to build the engine and push more. I'm in no rush, its huge fun.

She is lucky to have you

Maybe tell her no fun ride without being belted properly. And be firm. Kids need to know there are consequences and you have to follow through with your 'threats'.

Tell her she is a 'big girl' now and needed to be belted like one.
