lol yeah the potential for meth on diesel is very good and much safer than gas cars, but like anything else its still important to research for your own needs to see if the fit is right. I wouldnt recommend meth for someone who wants to just install it and forget its there until their low washer light comes on. I inspect my kit at least once a week to make sure its still looking good, no leaks, crimped hoses, etc.

there is a lot more to it than just mixture %, such as nozzle size and pressure, but there are some companies out there that sell diesel kits. It takes some know-how to get it wired up especially on a newer diesel, I got lucky since Burger has an adaptation to the JBD that provides a trigger to their kit. Since you have RENNtech there would be some more figuring to get the correct wiring

LSD = Limited Slip Differential.

In the 535D Variant, Top gear themselves pointed out this is something this setup could use. Check out 7:57

wouldnt it be cool if top gear moved out of the UK so that they could test drive a car on a dry surface for once? Seems like the Stig is the only one that ever sees dry ground

People make much ado about meth mixture, yes the alcohol aids in combustion but the primary performance benefit to meth is compression/expansion. During compression water, being incompressible reduces the effective volume of the cylinder and allows for greater compression of the air fuel mixture. During ignition, water becomes gaseous and expands which makes the power stroke more 'explosive' so to speak. temps are a secondary benefit.

Limited slip differential, friend.

...all this LSD and meth talk is going to get people thinking the wrong thing!

Edit. Lol. I just saw the video. All of my posts seem to be a day late and a dollar short lately

What's the weight of the OEM vs the M3 rep?

I would tend to disagree with that, particularly when it comes to diesel. I think the evidence in the link is indisputable. If you read the link, you would see that the test vehicle saw an increase of 58 WHP and 87 WTQ with no other changes (tuning, nozzles, etc) between using windshield washer fluid (typical assumed to be around 70% water and 30% methanol) and a 25% water/75% methanol mixture. Thats a pretty big difference to be considered just "much ado".

Not bad at all. When added to other weight saving mods you'd really see more of a benefit.

Nice Video of the STIG driving a mamouth!! but to be honest we cannot compare to gassers, but at least the 5d did do great compared to other cars!! Oh boy was REALLY impressed with the DIESEL and that my friends is enough for me, someone that knows about cars talking eloquently about our D's

I wish they compared the 535i and 535d on whether or not the D can keep up with gassers on the track. I would think we would still lose but by a closer margin.

Also, I like to point out to my friends that I am just as fast with four people and a full trunk.

Sorry about the delay in replying, holidays with the kids and all... Yes, LSD stands for limited slip differential.

And I'm also in love with how much my car pushes even with a full trunk and seats occupied.

I also forgot in my list something like the Bluefin. It's in between piggy backs and reprogs.

Bluefin? I don't know this one. Anyone care to elaborate?

You are lucky, those type of Obd port flashes don't work with our silly protected DDEs in the US.
