big ups to Jeef for helping me this weekend with the ER dual oil cooler install and retro fit...this was definitely a pain in the !@#. Having somebody like Jeef to basically do all the work was needed. He didn't stress out or just pull or use the hammer..he took his time and was quite smart about it. Thanks Jeef. I would highly suggest Jeef to help you with your next mod. Did someone say E85....

Don't see how this takes 1.5-2hrs to due for just the oil coolers. With all the instructions out there...non of them really gave the full picture of how much you need to take off your car for this.

Yes took off the front, drilled holes (as per instructions***) and could have done some valve cleaning too CP, DP, FMIC, meth...we probably could have done a turbo swap while we were at it.

Just got some rubbing issues maybe from cutting the fender wells...going to check that out this evening. But oil temps are looking good so far...fingers crossed for no leaks!

What are the details of the dyno day? Anyone going to the BMW CCA autocross this Sunday? Any advice for a 1st time autocross?

This coming Sunday? I'll be on the opposite parking lot running the SCCA SOLO track. But best advice I can get, request an instructor. You can get a few extra runs in and they will show you everything you are doing wrong and what you need to do to make it right.

I really hope I can actually go this year. Now that the E90 is running again, I think I will try to do her up a little and take her to shows and events.

Yup this Sunday the 27th. With BMW CCA they give you an instructor for your first time. That's interesting there will be another auto cross going on at the same time.

Yea SCCA usually has a SOLO Day down at Qualcomm at least once a month. Ive been doing it for a couple years now, but this is the first season I am actually competing. And I have never ran with BMW CCA before but that's cool that they give you one on your first time. SCCA if you choose to run the last group you can run a few laps with an instructor. But either way, pay attention to him/her, they are very knowledgeable and can give lots of great advice.

I know many people know about this problem, but why something so simple was left with no reinforcement?

But this was my little fix:

What are some of your favorite locations in San Diego to do a photo shoot of your car?

Got a question, when you paid did you get a notification or anything. I didn't get anything just assumed it went through, checked my bank and I guess it was never charged. I know I clicked the link in the email, but I did it on my phone at work.

Worst case you can still show up to the dyno day but you will have to pay $70 instead of $60.
