    Check the 3 bolts on the top of the strut tower. Sometimes people forget to tighten once the car is off the jackdtands with weight on the suspension. Also, they are keyed.

    SJ_1989 started a thread For Sale: COBB 3" Catback Exhaust in Buy/Sell - Parts
    $650 OBO. Local pickup only unless buyer is willing to pay for shipping. Located in Peoria, IL. Will meet part way depending on distance. Came off a 2008 BMW E90 335i. Car maybe has 3000 miles on it since I put it on the car back in 2015 time frame. Nothing is wrong with it except for the tab that broke off on the side branch resonator (see first pic). I launched the car hard and it broke. It's very flimsy anyway so it's not doing anything and bent it out of the way. Never seen snow. Went single turbo with a custom exhaust so no longer need it. See the link below for more info. https://www.cobbtuning.com/products/exhaust/bmw-3-series-cat-back-exhaust-system

    Vehicle: 2008 BMW 335i Manual e92. I have done the following in the rear... M3 Diff M3 Subframe M3 parts diagram: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=WD93-USA-05-2008-E92-BMW-M3&diagId=33_1416 From the link above I have installed: #17 - 33322283545 - Wishbone (M3) #18 - 33322283547 - Guide rod (M3) #13 - 33322283549 - Steering arm/Toe Arm? (M3) !!! This appears to be too short as my tires are toe'd out like so... \ / I am still using my 335i part #s from the link below for: 335i parts diagram: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=WB73-USA-09-2007-E92-BMW-335i&diagId=33_1230 #11 - 33322406291 - Trailing Arm (335i) #4 - 33326772899 - Rollover strut mount (335i) If I were to go to an M3 Trailing Arm would that correct my toe out issue? OR is the Hub mounting points between the 335i and M3 hubs different? I'm wondering with the M3 subframe why I can't get this thing aligned with all the M3 control arms. Thanks!

    The dip in the torque curve was a slight overboost in the dyno run. JB4 quickly adjusted and fixed the boost back to target. Will have much cleaner graphs to show soon, this is only the beginning :)

    Another things is classification. In the great state of Illinoissss there is the standard truck classification for 1/2 ton. Once you go 3/4 ton and higher and depending on the weight you're pulling you need various classifications. Comes at a higher cost and requires to re-evaluated at particular intervals. I'm still on the typical classification with a 1 ton. It's what the dealer gave me when I bought the truck and I didn't know it until it was too late. I need to get reclassified at some point before the fuzz stops me.

    I have a 2010 F350 6.4L powerstroke single rear wheel with overload springs. If you're trying to pull two cars get a diesel, it will pull so much better. I've pulled a 20' enclosed bumper trailer with my 335 in it full weight and packed full of other stuff. Pulled like a champ. I have a tune as well on it. I'm currently looking for a 24'-28' enclosed bumper that I'll put a load stabilizer and anti-sway system on for the drag car, tools, golf cart, brewskies, etc. Or I'll get a gooseneck, I don't know yet. Honestly if you're looking to pull two cars I'm assuming you'll have a bunch of racing stuff along with you and you're looking for an enclosed trailer? That case I'd go gooseneck for sure. If you going long distances get a dually. It will be much more stable and easier to drive down the road with that extra pair of wheels. And if you have a blow out you're not taken out completely and can limp to get it fixed. Real question is, would you rather be 'cummin or 'strokin? :laughing-rofl:

    How in the world do you claim an output record without even posting the dynograph? If it was not bad enough tuners were fighting over Dynojet vs. Dynocom output records now we have a tuner claiming a record without even posting a graph of the supposed record to begin with and making up their own equations to get there. First of all, this is not the stock internal N54 record. It is not anywhere near it. The record is 861 rear wheel horsepower according to BimmerBoost's database: https://www.bimmerboost.com/content.php?5890-New-N54-335-record-861whp Maybe someone is even hitting higher output but the fact is 828 on a Dynocom is not even close. Claiming to have the highest horsepower stock N54 without even posting the graph and making up your own math to get it is bogus. Is it true this 9-inch rear end and 'big' tires have higher drivetrain losses than the stock setup? Sure. But what matters is what gets to the tires. You would have to grant absurdly high drivetrain losses to inflate crank horsepower in order to claim the highest output. Well over the 15% loss classic Dynojet rule of thumb figure. Regardless, this is a pointless assertion to make as you can just keep increasing the loss percentage until you get your 'record' number. It doesn't work that way Ghassan. No serious tuner would claim a record with invented math. Not only does he not specify the loss figure he is operating with, he does not specify what that figure is adding up to. In other words, a load of BS. Furthermore, we already went over the whole Dynocom vs. Dynojet debacle. Prove the output on a Dynojet or it just shows you are fishing for numbers to try to impress people who do not know any better. At the very least actually start with posting a graph of your dyno run. To BimmerBoost, this entire enterprise seems a bit shady and the forums already discussed Ghassan built motor issues as well as BBB complaints filed. Frankly, with the questionable aura surrounding Ghassan Motors they should go out of their way to provide data, logs, runfiles, pictures, etc., to alleviate concerns and prove reputable. Is anyone really buying this?

    Ecoboost tuning is becoming very popular and for those pushing the limits these cams from Xtreme-DI that are being distributed by RMB Motor Works are worth looking at. Xtreme-DI states the design is based around working with their upgraded HPFP's (high press fuel pump) for the Ecoboost. The Xtreme-DI HPFP pumps are well known in the Ecoboost world and RMB Motor Works does some impressive 3.5 Ecoboost builds so the partnership here makes plenty of sense. RMB did a custom grind that is paired to an XDI-60 pump with what they say is an Xtreme-DI lobe grind: It seems with an XDI-60 pump and these cams not only will the direct injection fuel system accommodate what is a teased 1000 horsepower but there are some large power gains to be had.

    Finally some dyno numbers for a car that is flying way under the radar. Obviously the B9 Audi models are giving tuners fits as the S4/S5 and RS4/RS6 ECU's can not yet be tuned. That is why this B9 S4 making some big power with a turbo upgrade with help from BMS (Burger Tuning) is such a big deal. The initial claim was that this S4 is producing roughly 700 crank horsepower. A BMS employee who will go unnamed leaked an initial dynograph on the AudiBoost forums: The difference compared to stock is huge especially when you look at the torque down low. The difference at 3500 rpm is almost 150 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. For whatever reason though the torque curve takes a dip and then drops past 5000 rpm when this turbo definitely has more flow up top in it. Early tuning no doubt. A recent dyno video shows even more impressive peak figures: 700 crank horsepower it is not but 430 awhp and 469 awtq on a Mustang dyno is not too shabby. Especially when you consider the car has bolt ons and is tuned for 91 octane daily driving. AudiBoost suspects we are not seeing the full curves posted due to the issues highlighted before but this is all part of the tuning process. Eurocode, SRM, and BMS are well ahead of anyone else on the platform and well over 200 horsepower over stock output.

    It is no secret this network does not hold Carwow and their 'testing' in high esteem but as they have access to an airstrip they continue to get cars to do acceleration comparisons with. This time around the BMW F90 M5 Competition faces some stout competition. The GT-R and 911 Turbo are not exactly direct rivals for the M5 but what they happen to be is all wheel drive, turbocharged, and easy to tune. The main difference of course is that the are lighter than the M5 and feature dual clutch transmissions. The M5 is the heaviest of the trio but also has the largest motor with the 4.4 liter S63TU2 V8. It is in Competition trim meaning it has BMW's factory warrantied tune. The GT-R is tuned as well but by Litchfield and well known Porsche tuner ESMotor tuned the 997.2 Turbo S. Off the line the GT-R gets ahead of everyone by some margin. The 997.2 Turbo S is charging hard and by the finish line it is pulling much, much harder. The F90 M5 is left in the dust. This should mean the Turbo S dominates the rolling race followed by the GT-R and M5. That is what happens. The GT-R for whatever reason starts in third gear which allows the BMW M5's torque advantage to keep it close while the 911 pulls easily away from them both. Want to make this interesting Carwow? Give the M5 an aftermarket tune and start the rolling racing in 2nd gear.
