Trav man I will have to put them on over the weekend into next week as I'm going away for a couple days. !! And Reilly m3. Wow that's a lot of $ invested in it!! That supercharger will prob get you like high 4 low 5 to 60 u think ?? I'm thinking of getting an 2006 m5 in a couple months !! I was thinking of supercharging my car but the cost of a supercharger is like 5 grand all setup if not more ! I just don't see the point for my car maybe an m5. Btw how many miles does it have ?? And it's stick?

The charger will only be pushing 5-7 pounds. In a few months Im planning on Arp studs and comp drop. Figure 60 hp gain to start then 80+ hp gain with 8-10 pounds. Not sure of the 0-60 time but it will be sitting around 270 hp at the flywheel. Not lightspeed but not bad.

dam & that's pretty low 5-7. id hope for at least 12 is normal & with 200,000 miles im surprised it could handle it with so many miles ! but that's great and 270 isn't bad for a 94sedan ! and is it a shift or a auto? im guessing shift lol

Hate to make your week even rougher, but you have an E46 and you're in the wrong forum.

That being said, there are a number of things that can cause an overheat, regardless, you do not want to overheat the engine as the M54 doesn't tolerate overheating any more than the M50 and M52 engines in the E36 did.

Btw if you start timing when the needle starts moving your not count 0-10mph. So your times are bull****. Who the **** does a 0 to 60 downhill?

at one point he mentioned starting his timing when the needle started to move. but the needle starts moving at 10mph not 0.

then his video where he does 0-60 5.6 downhill or whatever it said.... who does a 0-60 downhill? just pointless to determine how fast your car is down a hill. anyones car is going to be faster downhill and there is no way we can compare on the downhill times without all having the same hill.
