I saw this > http://www.ecstuning.com/ES41456/. Maybe this CDV also has some amount of restriction but a lot less than the stock one in our cars? I guess you could ask why have a CDV at all?

I'll report on it separately after I have it installed on mine.

Hmm, perhaps this description was generated prior to the 1M being released?

Decided to fit some new kidney grille's. I had purchased a set of these oem bmw black chrome grilles 6 months ago. After fitting them I didn't like them so i wacked the oem grille's back in!





I had bought a set of those air scoops way back when i first bought the car (and was young & naive!) as these were really popular on the 5 series forum and thought if they work on a 530i surely they work well on a N54!!!

Easiest DIY ever, remove the air intake ducting:



Drop the scoop inside from the top:





Done + 30HP!!!



On 2nd thoughts they do block a fair amount of the radiator core...

Amazing thread, just read every post in the last week or so. Couldn't put my phone down. It has answered, and also raised, a lot of questions that I will post in my own intro thread coming soon. Keep up the amazing work.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the read, I had attempted to compile this build thread as a source of info (& perhaps inspiration!) for others new to the platform as when I had 1st joined there were tidbits of info all over the place but not in one thread.

Looking fwd to seeing your intro thread

Just gotta get my posts up so that I can upload pics. It's been 8 years since I've been a new member to a forum. I forgot how much it blows waiting for your 15 posts.

Unfortunately the 335i has been under wraps in the garage on the battery tender for the past few months (along with my aprilia!) due to home renovations!

I need to get the following items sorted by advan prior to going on the oxley highway run with a few mates!

Walnut blast - My car has clocked over 80k kays and whilst it still runs fine, no doubt she's choked up due to the design of the DI engine.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ghlight=walnut



VCG - I have had a minor oil leak since buying the car, and when changing the plugs all the threads were covered in oil. I have a replacement valve cover and gasket (the covers are plastic and its common for them to split and leak!)



oil filter housing gasket - might as well replace this since its a $10 part during the walnut blast



Still haven't fitted my BMS OCC, so might as well do this whilst the intake clean is getting done!

Inlet manifold gaskets:



I had a spare HPFP that I had bought years ago when having CEL's, but didn't end up using it. I had sold that recently and am thinking I might as well do this whilst the intake manifold etc is off (bugger all extra labour since everything is off)

This is the newest rev of the HPFP



Have heard the LPFP fuel sensor can cause issues, and once again the TB will be apart for the intake clean so what's a $100 part when you're spending $1500 on other parts!!



Meanwhile on my M3 driveline/brake/suspension upgrade I've bought some pads and brake lines.

M3 bits:















The stoptech pads seemed to have good reviews and provide great BFYB compared to the Pagid pads, and are an improvement over the oem ATE pads. My car is also predominantly a street car so it's no use getting noisy track type pads which eat rotors (the M3 rotors are expensive to replace!) and take quite a bit of temperature to start working (no use in low speed traffic!)

So hopefully I will get the time to get the walnut blast done shortly then finalise parts for the M3 driveline install and spend some time painting/cleaning all the hardware so it's ready for installation at last!
