Introduction - E92 - Manual

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum and figured I would introduce myself and Eevee!

My name is Christian, and I just recently acquired Eevee, she is a beautiful '09 335i E92 with 46k miles. Instead of telling you all about her, i'll just show y'all!

These are pics i've taken over the past couple days while waiting for my account to completely activate. She actually just got detailed today! So the interior is gorgeous.

Haha, yeah. Have the JB4 in mind for the near future, injen intakes and then non-catted down pipes. What do you guys think?

Injen intake interferes with upgraded charge pipe and bov (which should be done after DCI and before JB4). The CP is needed as under higher boost from the JB4, the stock units have a habit of cracking/breaking/popping off.

My intake recommendation is the aFe unit and allegedly flows more than any other aftermarket DCI, plus its awesome looking in the engine bay, but the fact of the matter is that the 95 buck DCIs from VRSF and BMS will do the job equally well for a lot less. Apparently heat soak isn't really that much of a worry in these, so the heat shielding of the 'more expensive' intakes is just extra weight. I dunno, I'm still on the fence whether I'll get a heat shielded one (ambient temp gets up to 115 here in the summer) or a 'basic' one.

So you think that the DCI should be done first? Makes sense, gives the turbos more/clean air to be able to do their job, and then the CP to get the rest of the car ready for the JB4 ecu tune so that it can preform even better.

In a way it's like putting on socks before you put on shoes haha.

Wait till you get a tune(JB4 is what I have) its pretty much night and day!! Best part is, you can turn the tune on and off.. on the fly(save gas)

That does look pretty awesome, opposed to just the DCI with just the cones by themselves haha

Yeh, well, many say that they have JB4 on the stock CP and bov and don't have any issues, but there seem to be a lot more saying that the CP pops off under higher boost and that the stock plastic DVs are just shit.

Personally I am planning the same mods as you in the near future, full bolt ons with JB4, I'm just doing the cosmetic stuff first.

My mod order will be approximately the following.

1) Chargepipe with BoV, oil catch can and DCI at the same time (I consider these prerequisites to running a tune).
2) Buy a JB4, run map 1 and see how I like it
3) Decat downpipes and catback exhaust (if I didn't already have one), alternatively a full turbo back system.
4) Change JB4 map to map 2 and giggle like a little girl.
5) ETS 5" FMIC (7" is overkill if you aren't racing and the 5" fits without any bumper cutting, most FMICs require a little cutting)
6) Start filling up with 96 octane (100 RON is freely available at the pumps in Euroland) and try JB4 maps 5 (autotune) and 7 (FBO with race gas or E85).
7) Extra pair of trousers for the ones I soiled testing map 7.

I figure that's a pretty safe order to do things based on what I've read.

I'd be weary of those who claim the stock chargepipe is fine on the JB4. Most of those people just haven't updated their posts after the CP has blown up. We don't have customers request overnight shipping on a lot of parts but probably half of our CP orders are express delivery because they're stranded without a car. It doesn't just pop off, it literally explodes and shatters in a bunch of pieces. Just something to keep in mind

BTW the AMS is a 6" intercooler, it actually requires almost as much trimming as a 7".

Congratulations on your ride! Looks clean and good on you for getting a 6MT.

On a side not, I was not aware North American models came with the rear fog light switch. I thought that was exclusive to European/Asian models?

Sorry. I was getting confused between AMS and ETS. It's the ETS one that's available as 5" and 7", with the 5" requiring no cutting. I tend to get stuck on AMS due to my previous hondas Still a great tuning brand.

Edited my previous post to save on future confusion.
