    Looks interesting. It could certainly stop the hunt for DASCs.

    Has anyone got any more info on this kit? Assuming the company are going to market it I'd certainly be very interested in buying one... depending on price of course

    I can shed a bit of light on this post as that is a picture of my car.

    Yes they will be offering it as a kit, just a few more tweaks left to be ready to do so and the Production Plenum will look different.

    My car was used as a guinea pig for the development, so far so good and ironed out a few early tweaks along the way so running quite well now

    Contact Pete on the details posted for more information, he's been helpful so far, I've noticed a 318is in his garage already waiting for a transplant.

    I will help you where I can if you want a first customer opinion.

    Car will be Goodwood for the next 4 days on GKD stand.

    Will post a couple of pics of new Plenum design in coming days.

    When not mobile will also put up some more details.

    Brief update:
    All gone well car running nicely and is quite quick now with SC on.

    Held off with pictures as GKD found out BMW have stopped making a part that was being used so are now fabricating an alternative, should be a couple of weeks. In mean time have swapped back to NA took 3 hours to do swap.

    Not forgotten to upload pics etc. when Pete at GKD is happy with it.

    Sounds good. I'd love to see this on a dyno next to a DASC.

    "Quite quick"? Less than expected/hoped?

    Why haven't you left the 'charger on?

    Looking forward to more info / pics
