21 track events and going strong.

My performance/reliability related setup is:

2001 E46 M54B25 with Steptronic ZF 5HP19.
Technik Engineering ASA Stage 1 (6.5psi pulley, with ECU, larger intercooler, TM-12 compressor).
Dinan transmission s/w.
Modified oil catch can.
Technik Engineering engine oil cooler.
Mobil 15W50 engine oil.
Redline D4ATF transmission oil.
Redline 75W90 differential oil.
Redline Water wetter + distilled water in radiator.

Other mods:

Customized Monitoring and Data Acquisition Control System, MDACs. Monitors >20 sensors.
Customized coilovers 550# F/502# R.
Kosei K-1 Racing 17" with Michelin Cups
Brake cooling ducts.
HT-10, HP+ pads.

Future mods:

Water mist brake cooling for summer.
Motorized damping control for shocks.
Splitter design.
GPS track mapping.

Detailed analysis and datalogging on boost, EGT, pressure points in the system (pre-SC, pre-IC, post-IC), oil cooling, water sprayed oil cooling technique etc, more pictures and videos, please visit my track blog (

My latest project includes measuring static pressure points on bumper for an upcoming splitter design. For a more thorough discussion, please visit the blog.

If you have any questions/comments please post them here. I am always up for a round of technical discussion of my testing methods and on topics including but not limited to thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, kinematics and suspension dynamics. :thumbup:
