Oh, yes. You might also consider cross-drilled brake lines.

Been there done that, didn't notice too many gains... Added some ms109 to my coolant and felt a huge boost, looking for more simple mods...

Good to know. I heard some people tap their power steering fluid and inject it into their charge pipe. It's supposed to really clean up fuel trims

I have been looking for new trans oil. Are you changing the sump and filter too?

This stuff seems only available in the states. Is there an equal alternative in the UK?

Run motul 300v. Did you get the D4 or D6 ATF? If you actually got ATF I've heard unfavorable reviews on the D4. Edit. You got D6. Good man.

For more horsepowers and stuff, put redline and motul decals along the side skirts and tell people that you're a sponsored racecar driver. The mehicanas love the stickers.

But really, I have this super unique 335i and want to chip it for a bunch of extra horsepowers to beat my daddy's friend's SC Z06 by at least a bus or two. Which superpowerchip should I get? And what stickers come with it?

I heard that the filter is built into the sump as an all in one unit... Is this true? S you need to replace the whole sump inc filter...

Probably lose a few HP cause you didn't get it from me haha

You should really look into muffler bearings, it improves efficiency by up to 13%.

This is a complicated one... Once you start dealing with stickers and HP, it gets really complicated. I've heard mixed reviews on Motul, and superpowerchips stickers. I've heard that BurgerTuning stickers are solid 5hp each, and i have 2 of those, pretty happy with the result... Shift Sector stickers are supposed to add 1hp for each car that showed up to the event, so you can do the math on that, i'm too lazy. All in all my car is damn near 1000hp, just need minor mods like front bumper clips and thicker intake welds...
