Exclamation Sneaky's E90 Track Prep

Taking my car to Willow Springs on Friday with some friends and after reading all 41 pages about the heat related issues caused by the N54 engine's twin turbos, "STICKY: 335i Limp Mode Party at the Track" thread, I decided to pull the trigger on my next mod...

ER Competition Dual Oil Coolers (link)

Had them installed Friday and even though they look pretty sweet, I'm way more anxious to actually put them to work. Spent yesterday and today doing some maintenance and prepping the car (see earlier post for all kinds of good DIYs).

Last thing on the list is a corner balance and alignment for some more camber. Getting this done tomorrow at SouthBay Autohaus.
Quick Tip: if anybody needs a good indy-shop in SoCal, checkout Qais at SouthBay Autohaus in Hawthorne. He used to be the chief mechanic at the SouthBay BMW dealership before he opened his own shop.

I'll post some pictures next weekend and let you know how it goes.

Great stuff and nice pics. Cooling mods are a track car's friend, especially a 335i (and then, especially an N54). Have fun out there!

What are you doing next Friday? It's not too late to sign-up. I know two M3's that are going and one of 'em is supercharged!

I can't wait. All the info I needed to help ensure my car's up for the challenge was found on this forum because of other enthusiasts. E90Post is awesome!

looks great, I don't know many people that have installed this. Never been of that front lip, but with the fog delete and and oil coolers it looks right at home.
