    More on the M106. don't leave us hanging like that.

    Comment


      Yep
      Started off as a mostly stock m106 swap


      Then I didnít have enough fuel and kept running lean on the track, battled heat soak so one thing led to another and I dumped a bunch of money on fuel prep and megasquirt. Well now that I have all this fuel, why not throw some more air in it?

        That thing is sick! Does your valve cover breather just dump to the front of your engine bay then? Wouldn't that cause a low pressure?

          In those pictures it did, it has since been routed to a catch can.

            Were you running the factory m106 intercooler with a fan attached to it? Why did you choose that over a front mount initially?

              Installed rear louvers

                Where'd you get the louvers and what brand are they? What's the going cost of those?

                  This is the only car I've seen pull off the m3 tail. The stance, meaty tires.. this is perfect. You win.

                      Thanks! How do you like the fit and finish?

                        It fits alright. I personally like the glossy snakeskin finish it came with while others prefer the satin black finish

                            Set mine up for winter storage for the first time ever.

                            Changed the oil, topped the tank, lubed weatherstripping, put on the scrap tires, refreshed undercoating, put a reminder on the IC to change the brake fluid in future and disconnected the battery.

                            Will probably take it out again in April.

                              That's awesome! What do you do if you don't have spare wheels? inflate them a lot?
