    I haven't been on this site for a while so sorry for my late reply Jankes-BMW. Here are a few pics......

    We simply continued from the OEM header pipes into a single pipe that swings up and under the sump and then into the turbo......



    Then the dump/down pipe off the turbo is 3.5” and then splits into a twin 2.5” system......



    Then it continues into a twin 2.5” system with twin High Flow Cats......



    UPDATE;
    I have since increased the boost to 10psi still on a totally standard engine. With careful tuning the end result was 433rwhp on a Dyno Dynamic Dyno......



    As can be seen from the date on the dyno sheet, this tune was done a few months ago and the stock engine is still going strong. Here is a video of a power run......



    Current pic of engine bay......



    A few weeks ago I entered a Dyno Day. Unknown to me someone took a video of the M3 during a power run at the dyno day and put it up on youtube. As a matter of interest the M3 made 437rwhp at the dyno day on 10psi boost on a different dyno to the one I normally use so its good to know that the M3 is within a few rwhp between dynos......

    Wow! Looks great! Nice work.
    I reckon that would run low to mid eleven second passes at the 1/4 any day!!!!

    Thanks Ash and Boostist,

    I have not raced the car over the 1/4 as yet however am planning to do so. I have set up the Autronic to run 5 psi in 1st gear, 8 psi in 2nd and 10 psi in the remaining gears. When I do run the car, by no means will I be trying to run as fast as possible as I really don’t want to break anything.

    It would be nice if the M3 can run a high 11 however it will be heavily dependant on the launch. I’m really just going to give it a run for fun at the moment and will get serious about running a good time once the engine is built for higher boost.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Planning on giving the car a run over the 1/4 mile soon, will post results once done. Hopefully i will be driving the car home after a few runs rather than towing it home......

    This is a very useful thread, im planning on turboing my 3.2 evo engine next year once funds are available and reading this makes me think its not going to be as hard as originally thought as long as i can find the right tuner!

    BMEP

    Just wondering but do you just tune the autronic system or can you supply them aswell as i could do with someone who knows what i need to get parts from as to be honest one concern of mine is that ill go out and get parts and have to be constantly swapping them for better stuff to make it work?!
