ESS didn't want to tune for headers... its definitely doable if you hit up Bob and get a custom tune done. Nothing has broken with his tune in my car. No running too lean with his work.

I drove down to visit Bob in August and he did my MILVs/3IM and had it on their dyno.. imma have to give him a shout when it's time to do this

are you MT? will your left foot braking work? someone who has done this has had issues with this

I actually need Bob to address this upon the retune! Accelerator does not respond if I'm on the brake.

New water pump installed VC closed up... all that remains is the engine and trans being reinstalled!

Since we were not forced to use an updated DME- I am sticking with the 3IM. Disappointing, I know. But monetary wise, it wasn't in the cards to do with this job in the first place. If I can sell my Adaptive Xenons soon, then I'll be all about hitting up Bob and having the guys fab up an intake going from the blower to the N54 IM.

Or have a custom intake made for direct port meth, assuming you don't have E85 available.

It's good you removed the CDV. One of my 1st mods on the 335i. Every manual BMW should have it removed on day 1.

2 steps forward... 1 step back...
Fun fact: found out my engine that was in the car originally was actually a junkyard engine LOL.

The not so funny part: This was a bonafide 328 with WHAT IS VERY LIKELY, THE ORIGINAL TRANSMISSION FROM THAT CAR BOLTED UP TO IT. Engine ran PHENOMENAL. But on release of the clutch... no joy. You'll hear a nasty metal on metal noise since the input shaft size does NOT mate up to the rest of the engine all that well. Currently trying to source the actual transmission for this car... beyond pissed.

Sell it. #walkaway

Seriously I know it is now a labor of love but cut your losses.

I tried to make a small displacement NA engine fast once. It is a waste of money and time. NA only works with displacement. You will still be slower than a 335i. The blower is too small even with all the octane e85 will give you and smaller pulleys etc.

What? So you mean your car has always been running a 328i engine and transmission in it? (ie., not a genuine 330i?) I am mildly confused....

In any case, sourcing a correct spec 6 speed transmission might be difficult, maybe it's time to rethink the whole project.

Found 3 or 4 promising candidates... not too bad.
~500 USD

Just frustrating to say the least...
Still moving forward with it. Especially after this gets rectified- I'll literally know the ins and outs of this car 😤

Edit: Yes. 328 drivetrain. Idk what possessed whatever owner at the time to do an entire drivetrain swap.... but alas- I get the shit end of that stick.

Glad that you can find them... and they are so cheap?! It's a nightmare to source a manual transmission in my area.

Speaking of which, the AEM meth injector arrived and I will install them on Tuesday.

You are RHD right?
If it ever fails, let me know... I can help you source one from over here- worst case scenario.

I'm envious! I keep back peddling. But seeing as how the car is sitting there... I might as well have them put that manifold on so I can be a step closer to having meth in my system

New trans on the way! Trading the guys my intake manifold for the work on custom making me a silicone intake similar to the one found on the original ESS kit to fit from the blower to the N54 IM ... seeing as how it's the waiting game for the trans anyways. Then once that's done along with the PROPER trans being installed — Bob is doing me the solid of tweaking my file

I don't think I've been without my car this long. I miss doing hood rat shit, guys. FML.

The car pulls as it should!
Breaking in the new flywheel a bit more than it'll go back for the N54IM.
The chatter from the flywheel isn't terrible. And even though the mounts are solid for both trans and motor, it actually isn't a giant vibrator so to speak lol.
It feels like a little go kart now!

Are you there while you have your tuning done?
Do you know what value did you put in the tuning for the intake valve travel? 11mm I suppose? Or that doesn't matter as the travel and duration is governed by the mechanical unit (the MILVs)?

Thanks, I am planning to install the set later this month.
