    Picked up the ecu yesterday and I was hoping to pull out the car today but I'm sure you can figure out what happened.

    In the meantime I almost finished installing my vent gauge. I glued the screen in place and mocked up the gauge itself, now I just have to secure the gauge and block the back from airflow and it should be good to go.

    Still have the protective film on the front. The little hole below the 0 is for the button for programming and peak boost recall




    If anyone wants to see all the steps for the install let me know and I'll post it up

    So I'm hoping to get my exhaust to sound like the new M3/M4. What do you guys think?



    Or this

    Is it just me or do those two exhaust notes you posted sound bad...

    The first one was a joke, it sounds like a weed whacker. The second one was just an example of the difference between an exhaust cutout open and closed, which I'm thinking of getting. I actually like the sound of the second one with the cutout open.

    This is probably a better example

    Ya that second one better for sure haha if I got an m4 and it sounded like that first one I'd shoot myself! And Dave the third link you posted sounds very nice. Quiet during idle but rumbles under throttle its beautiful

    Car runs, still some slight hardware bugs that need to be sorted but it should be good to go once the snow is finally gone. Also got my hands on some data logging software so that should come in handy soon

    Re: Nabs' Alpine White/Imola Red E46 M3

    While trying to figure out the issue with the car I've been slowly working on other things to get the car to my liking. I rewired all my gauges and installed the new vent gauge.

    The first thing I did was rip out this lovely rat's nest of wiring that was set up temporarily back in the fall just so I could drive the car and monitor things. All the wires were properly soldered and heat shrink was used on all the connections.


    I also decided to mount by boost controller in the ashtray so that I can easily access it if I need to change settings and hide it when I don't need it since I can monitor the boost with the vent gauge.



    The wideband ended up in the glovebox since I don't really need to do anything with it


    And finally the vent gauge. It matches nicely with the OEM lighting.



    After a couple attempts to try and get the car running smoothly by adjusting the injector adapters (harness to injector connector) I kind of gave up and talked to Max PSI to see what could be causing the rough idle once the cold start sequence is over. After telling them that it would run rich for a while during start up they told me to check to see if the plugs were fouled. This is what I found:



    So it turns out you can actually foul spark plugs with a fuel injected motor, carbon foul them that is. They're sending me a new set of plugs and injector adapters to hopefully finally get the car running properly.

    Does anyone know of a place in town or a good place online that I can get either black silicon or poly vacuum lines? Thanks

    Good work with the stealthy gauge installs. Tight, tight, tight!

    Thanks! I ended up finding some polyurethane line to use instead since I bought some quick connect fittings.
