Alignment done yesterday at VAC - truly amazing shop. Thanks again for the tour Mike

Btw guys take your cars to VAC for alignments, they're unbelievably thorough. I don't think my car has ever handled so well.

Mike, hi, its Denny from Bimmerstock. I had spoken to you about my N54 535i and making a custom set of downpipes. If we could work something out, I'd be willing to help you market it like hell. Let me know, I'm down to still come out to VAC.

We have been doing a lot of 135i and 335i LSDs lately. Some wanted to see the difference in size between the large and small diffs - the pic speaks for itself. This info is not new, but it's worth posting again.

335i manual: Aug 06 - Feb 07 - Bolted large *3.08
335i manual: Mar 07 - bolted or welded large *3.08
335i manual: Apr 07 - Present - welded large *3.08
335i auto: Aug 06 - Aug 07 - Bolted large *3.46
335i auto: Sep 07 - Bolted small *3.46

135i manual: ALL welded large *3.08
135i auto: ALL bolted small *3.46

Nice pics Mike ... I know my car would love an LSD but my wallet would jump off a bridge.

Best $$$ spent next to a tune IMO. Hell, even my 6MT Acura TL has a factory LSD


A Quaife with 3.08. Our 'short' uber badass billet cover which offers:
1. +50% oil capacity
2. increased cooling via fins
3. drain and fill holes with AN provisions for an easy cooler install
4. provisions for catch can and temp sensor
5. super strong billet aluminum (yes, covers can break)

Here is the standard length on our owner's daily city ride on V3s.


We have black and clear anodized in stock but can offer custom colors by request.

VAC FTW! Stopped by there today to get some wheels put on and to take a look at the shop. Very impressive stuff going on there! If you haven't visited you must.

Sid thanks for stopping by!





Had the car out at NJMP (Lightning) today for a DE. Our partner in the Middle East was visiting us for the week, so it made sense to stop by NJMP for some fun.

Garo is a rally/hill climb/drift badass, so this was a bit of a change. Can is running STRONG and cool - this VF Engineering kit continues to impress.

Here is a vid of Garo in his E90 M3.

That's impressive. E90 m3's are not light car's by any means.

Mike, I talked to Chris Bull a few times over email and on the phone once about the upgraded N54 cylinder head. I didn't get any details on pricing but did get some flow bench numbers. Is that ready?

I also see you're mentioning a fueling upgrade of some sort..can you describe what you're doing there and when will that be available? With my car and RBs at 500whp we're still not hitting any fuel limitations when using a flash tune like Cobb..piggies are seeing limitations at around 500-520whp due to their fuel control approach..where do you see the stock fuel system limit to be and have you flow tested those injectors, stock HPFP, stock LPFP, lines in any way

N54 head is done - numbers are quite nice. Need time to get it on our 135i for the REAL numbers

We are not working on the fuel - just waiting patiently for someone to get it done. I know a few vendors have programs in motion - I'm sure the end is near. We want them in a bad way!
