My Build:

New to this forum so I figured I'd post my build thread. Looking forward to being active on here as much as possible.

At first I was on the hunt for an E46 M3 and had the opportunity to test drive a few. Don't get my wrong I loved them. I was right about to close on an Alpine White M3 but I decided I'd give the E92 335i a chance before doing so. With all the research I was doing at the time, I kept stumbling upon people raving about the N54 engine. Plus I liked the idea of being able to get a newer car, with less miles, for around the same price.

Ended up grabbing an E92 335i from an e90 post forum member jdrdeer . For the sake of keeping this post as short as possible I'll just link that here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=791360

So you running ps2 with ots mhd map? And it runs ok?
Correct. Runs better than ok, the car is a beast and extremely smooth. With that being said I just reached out to Twisted Tuning regarding a custom tune.

Has forgestar fixed the metallurgy issues they were having with splintering/cracking wheels a couple years ago?

I was never aware of this issue but can say personally I haven’t experienced any cracking or splintering.... and we have some pretty rough pot holes here in NJ.

So you driving pure tubes with mhd ots flags? How does it feel? Stock?
Correct. The farthest thing from stock. The first week I was running them it literally blew my mind everytime I drove the car... power increase was insane. Been about a year now hence why I’m looking for more power/custom tune.

Good to hear.

I am looking at Pure Turbo Stage 2 hi flo when I upgrade. But that's after internals upgraded.
Pistons, rods, rings, bearings, etc...
