Can A BMW E46 330d Keep Up With An E92 M3 On Track?
If anyone has been watching carthrottle on YouTube with Alex Kersten (autoalex)
You will know that they have been modifying a 2005 manual 330d named Gareth to prove it can beat the lap time of a E90 M3 on track
Project E46 330d CarThrottle on you tube
Well today I managed to get my hands on it
The engine only mods it has to date are
Hybrid turbo by Turbo Dynamics
Race clutch and flywheel
AC been removed
Race Chip diesel tuning box
(Standard intercooler fitted)
We 1st dyno tested the car as it was from series 1 episode 7
This had a Race Chip diesel tuning box on it which we dyno tested then removed
Then we dyno tested it without the diesel tuning box so we had a base figure to start with
We could then see what the difference the Race Chip diesel tuning box made to the car
We then set about tuning the car on our in house Dyno Dynamics rolling
Once we where happy with the many calibrations we made to the cars engine ecu software and all the dyno testing was completed
We then let AutoAlex test drive the car
Series 1 episode 8 will be fitting the turbo dynamics turbo and our remap on the dyno
Testing on the track will be tomorrow and in series 1 episode 9
