Wow. That guy is pretty amazing. Got some ideas for when I hit the lottery.

Most of it is documented on my site, link in sig.
I hope that my site sparks interests and other will soon follow the DIY turbo craze with the E46.

Excellent work and write up!!:thumbup:

For those of us planning to own our ZHP's into the ground, this is a great piece of information. F/I or S54 swap seem like the best options.

Do you have a link to the site for your seat covers, and did you have pre-existing heated seats or did you put them in yourself?

With stock internals, you could probably squeeze it that hard for about eleven-point-three seconds before the BOOM ! :rofl:

This is my page posts for the seat covers: http://www.e46turbo330ci.com/?p=1166 and http://www.e46turbo330ci.com/?p=661

I just got them in at the house yesterday. The dark red does not come out too well in a point and shoot camera. it is much darker then pictures show. The color looks more like this: http://0.tqn.com/d/cars/1/0/a/B/2/ag...ta_redseat.JPG

I did not have heated seats on this ZHP my other one does.

Khalid will pretty much duplicate any seat covers you send him so he can make patterns and have leathers matched. All work is carried out in Pakistan as most leathers and tanners are from Pakistan.

I have bought things from him in the past for my Z cars.
