N55 Trackday Buttonwillow | new FMIC

Wanted to beat up the new FMIC at the track after thanksgiving -
Had an invite from old friends , Long, Ivan, Nick, Pak the whole norcal - socal bimmer family.
Again the N55 held up very well. It was a chilly day mid-to-low 60's.
Great day to track.

Oil temps held strong under 250. 20min runs each session, had 4 runs that day.

I ran the track without my ideal setup.
-didn't have meth yet because deal'n with another variable.
I had to remove my chargepipe and downgrade the procede board to
rev2 on an older map, 8-something.
I ran that map last track event so i knew it was solid - didn't want
to run the lastest map, which would've been fine but stuck with
what was on the board without upgrade'n it.

Coincidentally I ran into Shiv at the track - small world.
couple days before I was on the phone troubleshooting an
overboost issue with him - I log'd 20psi+
And later found out it was not an overboost but something else.

He took the time, trouble shooted my N55 at
the track, did a few runs on the highway, and
long story short I gave my Rev 2.5 board
back to shiv.
It's most likely an isolated issue.
Now that's taken care of Meth is a okay now for install.
I'll have piece of mind now. I usually will run a week or so
with any new bolt on for trouble shooting.

I'm leave you with one pict taken by
VP - Vanhap Motorsports Photography / photo edited by me
u can see the FMIC - easy install - minimal cut'n, clean fitment,
works for me.

Solid picture well done on the intercooler, i was waiting for some feedback. My car is going to Forge Motorsport for a week. They want to develop an n55 intercooler so i decided to be the test mule, it is a sweet deal ;]

Since it looks like youre gonna be tracking it more it might be time for a Quaife

Good to hear that oil temp held strong. I went to buttonwillow on 20th when was raining whole day. I saw a few 135s and m3s. Let's rock together next time!
