So finally got round to fitting a few engine mods I've had sat in the garage for a while.

ER chargepipe, Forge DVs, Oil Catch Can and RB pcv.

Figured it was best to fit them all in one go as you have to remove the cowl, engine cover and the DCIs all out the way.

The assortment of goodies:



Everything stripped out ready to start the install:



PCV location at the back of the engine:



Side by side:



Forge DVs finally in:



Chargepipe and DVs:



Oil Catch Can mounts to the strut bar so nicely tied out the way under the cowl:



None of the above will suddenly add any power etc but are all for the bigger picture and help to keep the internals a little cleaner and maintain boost where the oe items would have been restrictive.

Cheers buddy.

Still unsure on those cowl filters. We've fitted a set to a mates 135i so if they all good then will get some. Will save a huge amount of weight too lol. That cowl is bloody heavy.

Also would need to find the best location to mount the sensors that are clipped to the cowl.

Nice job, good basis for some serious mods there. I think the OCC, RB PCV and charge pipe are essentials if any engine works are planned.

I've been thinking about the cowl removal for a while, will be interested to see how you get on with it.

What's next in the works?

Thanks.

Still got a set of sport side skirts and the M3 front control arms to do.

Can't decide whether to get a set of the Cyba or Afe scoops.

Does the cowl not prevent water ingress to the engine bay and/or act as sound deadening (maybe more of an issue for me with my diesel tractor)

Lot of debate about them on this thread:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=889045

Consensus seems to be that water ingress isn't a big deal since all electrics should be watertight anyway. I'm still on the fence, I'd love the sound improvement but the cowl does stop water, snow and various other crap getting right into the engine bay.

Completely agree lol

Need to get the rear diffuser done in gloss black to match up to the rear of the spoiler.

This is more of a starter for the process of my next mod as there's a little more work involved lol.

I actually picked this up off eBay (before I'd even bought a car lol) in November for the princely sum of 80 lol.

It's a genuine E92 M3 CF roof:






Now as you can see it isn't mint but I figured maybe it just needed a bit of machining and possibly a re-lacquer. Unfortunately not though. The guys who will be doing the roof swap said a couple of the scratches were a little too deep.

Doesn't look too bad in the pics:


So after doing the deal with Sam on his bumper etc and telling him of my plans to do this mod he was intrigued. So we found another one and I bought it too lol.





The second one has a little bit of delaminating but I've found a company that can repair both and basically return them to new.

So need to work out the logistics of getting them both up to the guy to repair and then get the one fitted to mine and see if anyone would like the other.

Will keep you updated of the repair process.

This is one mod I've ways wanted to do to my cars and finally think the 335i is the one to get it. These will help to lower the centre of gravity as they are damn light.

Good work on the car man, a great choice of mods and the CF roof is a very unique idea - looking forward to seeing it fitted! Do you know how much lighter it is than the non-CF roof?

Thanks for the comments.

Not sure on the weight of the oe roof but once it's repaired and passed to the body shop guys I'll get them to weigh both to compare. Will be interested to know myself tbh lol.

Cheers. Hoping it will look very unique and I love the fact it's OE and genuine CF as opposed to just a wrap etc.

Raj,

Lol Greg, thanks. I don't tend to. For some reason I find it hard to resist. I see the end goal and just go for it. You only live once LOL.

I thought about it before I even bought the car and when the first one came up I couldn't resist lol.

I've got to get both up to the guy to be repaired first. Then he's said 2 weeks to do both. Fingers crossed all straight forward lol.
