it turned up the other day just not had chance to fit it yet so hopefully the weather is alright 2morro and i'll crack on and give it a go (will try and remeber to take some pics too!)
well i did take my camera with me today but i didnt check the battery and surprise surprise it was dead!
but anyway i changed the fuel pump with a uprated walbro 255 one and its now alive again!
it was easier than i expected but i've now got a stinking headache from the petrol fumes!
can you fit any walboro 255 to any bmw? and what sort of difference would it make to normal driving as I notive everybody seems to be using them for any tuned car...
just a little update for this i finally had it all mapped
and upgraded a few bits to get the most out of it
thats a uk 325 maf
30lb injectors to replace the standard 19lb ones (from a volvo turbo still on the volvo fuel rail in the pic!)
and the injector adaptors (as the bmw ones are longer)
the map itself was done by enda who is a great guy and explained everything and showed me all the changes he was making to the map etc (even though it was mainly over my head and looked like i was looking at the matrix )
but the result is fantastic and not only does it have more power but also is more drivable!
and has got rid of the rising rate fuel pressure regulator! and upped the rev limit a little
all in all i'm very happy and will be putting it on a dyno pretty soon to see what its now making
did you not have it mapped on a dyno then ?
sorry mark only just seen your comment its wasnt done on a dyno mate
and another supercharger related drama happened a couple of weeks ago now!
i'd always heard the idler pulleys that came with the dasc where not really anygood and always planned on replacing them but as luck would have it not soon enough as i was driving along slowly and then all of a sudden i lost power steering so immediately thought it was something to do with the pump etc so pulled over to have a look to see this
so i set about looking for a more reliable set! and as luck would have it i found a guy on a forum that is a dab hand at fabbing stuff up so he made me a couple out of alloy and with top quality double row bearings etc
and all fitted
just to keep this up to date after fitting a bigger maf i'd been on the look out for a decent induction kit and ended up going for the k&n (dave f kit) as i'd seen dyno proven results for it before
also after removing the hose that used to feed air to the injectors there was a matter of sourcing a new intake boot but after a few cuts in the right places i managed to reuse the 318is boot and plugged the hole with a brake calliper dust cover!
and a few pics of it fitted!
next update should hopefully be a dyno result!!
someone elsewhere asked me to do a quick sound clip of how the s/c sounded so loaded a quick vid to youtube
as per any video filmed on a phone it does the sound no justice at all but you get the picture
i'm filming it on my phone with my left hand so didnt change gears just stayed in 2nd
(yes i know the brake pad sensor light is on! but its just a broken wire :oops: )
oh and its on a private road on a camp :
