more bits..........

windscreen.

EDIT: 17/06/12

well speaking to a friend of enda's one of the highly regarded bmw e36 engine mappers and he has an custom mapped ECU for sale, which i happen to have bought bounce

this baby is mapped for most aggressive timing/fueling at full throttle and is for out and out power on my 2.8 engine, with a safe but raised rev limit.
should have it fitted in week or two. watch this space DIYPERFORMANCE.NET

EDIT: remapped ecu is fitted and happy to report throttle response is crisper, possibly around an extra 15bhp and the 7K rev limit really makes it scream, just need to by the M50 inlet manifold conversion and BBTB and it should be good for 240bhp going on rolling road graphs of same cars with same mods.

thats it so far......car runs well, wants for nothing.
doesnt stop me doing the brakes, poly windows, m50 manifold conversion, BBTB, remap, LSD from m3.

should be 240ish bhp and light for a beemer, plenty of poke especially in the wet.

just did the ring trip and managed a sub 10.00min lap with plenty of traffic, car never missed a beat and handles spot on.

if anyone wants help with a beemer just ask moi

well the new ECU is being posted on friday and so should have it fitted by next weekend, car literally will just need running in various driving situations on high spec fuel which i always use anyway for around 30mins. i will then have LEARNT. i should make a nice difference.

also waiting to here back on some M-TECH door mouldings as mine are either fecked or missing thanks to the local tea leafs

also mr berry has kindly gave me a black steering wheel as he didn't like mine! looking to get it wrapped by yours truly in some suede type flocking.

cheers.
