Glad you guys made it! Great turnout and weather we had, and hope you enjoyed the pizza place. I'll put something together again soon.

Wish I got a pic of the cars, but I guess we all think alike and were worried about possible dings haha.

Brb, gonna post some scoops up for sale.

Great to meet you all. Good turnout and good weather. Thanks for organizing the meet and picking a good spot Z.

I'm definitely down for some coding and happy to pay in cash, food, booze, or all of the above . Maybe have a mini meet or something as I am sure there are at least a few of us who want to have some things coded.

I'd like to hit the strip this year if anyone else is interested. Once it opens and the weather is better of course. Also down some AutoX events as I have never done one before.

You're welcome, let me know if you have any questions with the setup

Car rides fine, firm but not bone jarring. A few other members here attest to its characteristics.

Winter sucks but we did have good weather.

Great to meet everyone. After listening to all of you, I have to start thinking about what mod to do first.

Long story short I was on VRSF last night picked out an intercooler, charge pipe and down pipe before I erased it all. I figure I'll be back and forth like this for another couple months before I eventually give in and end up full bolt on. God help me.

Just picture a dozen or so great guys and girls surrounding a collection of nice E9x and E82s. Most of which covered in salt and bridge underpass drippings.

I've got 3 or 4 tabs open on my ipad with different spring and strut combos, and another 3 or 4 tabs with e90post.com xi suspension threads.

Tom, one thing I would suggest is to remove the dealer tag from the rear. I remember noticing that when admiring your car.

Btw 6MT guys, I removed the clutch pedal spring per: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195777

Night and day. Car should've come this way.

Hmmm this clutch spring is designed to help you push the clutch pedal in and keep it to the floor right? Is it harder to push the clutch down with now without the spring? My clutch is alot heavier than stock so I'm not sure I would want to make it any harder to push in...Or does it help pull the pedal back to the full up position to reduce eliminate TOB wear?

The stock clutch is stupidly light.

Can you explain how it feels different in any more detail? I read the thread I'm still not sure if I should try it...It looks easy to remove but a bitch to put back.

"The clutch pedal effort did increase slightly, but not much (maybe by 10%)"

"What if I refitted the spring upside down, with the wider spaced coils at the top? Would it make a difference?? So I did (f@cking pain in the ass getting it back on but hey I was bored anyway). Took it for a test drive and to my surprise it feels way better back in there. Linear, but much less force required than with the spring removed. Perfect shifts just less effort." <--if this is true maybe I will just reverse it to lighten my clutch pedal. It's not too heavy but I wouldn't mind it to be lighter.

"it actually makes it lighter going down and heavier going up" "If you think you might want a firmer clutch pedal, try this."


edit: Have you done the clutch stop yet?

I've done the clutch stop already, and combined, the clutch feels much better. It's a bit stiffer to press down, but enough to help you find the point of engagement. After that, when releasing, the last 10-20% of travel feels linear, and does not feel overly sprung. No issues with the pedal arriving to the top, or releasing in time.

I wouldn't put the spring back in with my case, but it's fairly easy enough to tinker with. The clips were a b**** though.

can't resist the urge for that long man. I was FBO and tuned by the 1st weekend with the car

If you do have to save, just do intake/dp/cp/fmic. Even hold out on the CP for a bit if you want.
The exhaust isn't that restricted on our cars.

Ya the clutch stop is worth it, it's like 10 bucks and super easy to install.

I did the clutch stop and CDV at the same time. Still want the short shifter tho. Need to check out AMR's SS
