IdRatherBeSurfing's e90 ST Build...The GrimReaper

Time To update this thread.... No more 4xxWhp games! Winter Time Single Turbo Build In Progress!!

Some parts have been ordered and others im waiting to be released...I will update photos as parts come in and go on...Since I started this as my first build thread its kind of messy..I may delete this and make a new one thats more organized.

Car is Currently at Precision Tuning (M5 world record holders) Getting the diff shipped out to MFactory for some love!! i have some surprises coming from me and the crew at Mfactory so stay tuned for that. Ive only heard great thing about them and im ready to pile on all their parts for this platform!


I have talked to Jerry and i will be ordering his hotpart kit with a little twist! As for the turbo ill wait to post about that because im talking with a few different companies and rather it be a surprise. Steve at Fuel-it should be releasing his port injection kit soon and thats going to be nothing less then amazing im sure!


I know many people bash vrsf and their fmic's but ive had no issues with them so i plan to continue using the 7" fmic...UNTIL i can buy the AD fmic. I have no need to upgrade the fmic and it is rather pricey so ill leave that for down the road.

Havnt picked out Motor mounts yet but i will def need those.




Performance:
Jpworks Hotpart Kit
Pure Turbo
Evolution Racewerks CP/ Synapse Bov
Fuel-it Stage 3 LPFP
Fuel-it Port Injection
MHD stacked with Haltech
VRSF FMIC 7in



Interior:
ECS l.e.d. Interior lights

Exterior
ECS Black Kidney Grills
Carbon Fiber Front Bumper Splitters
Carbon Fiber M3 spoiler

Drivetrain/Suspension
MFactory lsd
MFactory Flywheel
Mfactory Diff Bushings
BMS Short Shifter
ECS Clutch Valve Delete
Clutchmasters twin disc
