    Looks like this thread is becoming an ix knowledge base in general. Some interesting stuff going on for sure, however.

    What are your intentions with the rwd subframe?

      He just wanted to take some measurements and see what BMW did different, and if he can, maybe figure out why they made it different.

        Like he said... knowing how BMW changed the RWD front end to allow for AWD can help me understand WHY they made specific change and what I have to track on my unit.

        Also, it would be interesting to have a pseudo-bolt-in unit to convert a RWD car (like, say... an M3) to AWD.

          Did 10 more 5500 rpm launches last night, visited a small local street race and had to try some runs :)

            0-62mph (0-100kmh) times with current power (~300hp) is pretty consistent 4.8-5s with a best of 4.6 :)

                    Data package on the RWD crossmember is complete, but I haven't picked it up yet.

                        "slow" setup, hahaha. :)

                        looks great! so you are able to keep the stock booster no problem huh? it looks like there's lots of room.

                            Yes but i have a custom intake and yet had to move the booster a little :P

                            I was invited to race a Veyron today with my ix turbo but i didnt have time to finish the car :(
                            But luckily another BMW turbo came and raced the Veyron :D
