Anyone interested in buying a complete set of almost new stock brakes? I could bring mine back with me during the second week of May. I figured since we don't get them covered under the maintenance plan someone here might want them.

Hey,
New to M3post.
Have done a few mods,
Added the UUC SSK, 4.10 diff and Pulley.
Hopefully this week I will receive my SS Race exhaust.
Considering ECU and Cat delete as well.
I have to keep the guys in the Dinan 335's in check.
Have you thought about doing anything?

Speed on Green moves forward

ctvcalgary.ca

Drivers who speed through intersections with red light cameras will now pay the price for their infraction.

Beginning Wednesday, the cameras will start taking photos of any vehicle speeding through green and yellow lights.

Fines of up to $351 will be mailed out to the registered owner.

The use of the cameras for speeding infractions is endorsed by Alberta Health Services.

AHS says collisions in intersections are among the most serious in the health care system.

Health officials say they support any measure that will bring down the number of injuries sustained in serious crashes.

Police say between three and five cameras will be rotated among select intersections.

Yeah it is a great deal.

It is obviously difficult for us to get this done but given the incredible deal and exchange is 1.24 right now people should think about it.

I dont know.........$800CAD for 15hp and 11ft/lbs?

Being this is a Calgary thread I know it wont get into a pissing match about the product

I guess if you have an extra $800 burning in your pockets and need to mod something then yeah.

No, you can have it back 2 days from when you send it. Send it UPS overnight, they will flash it and ship it back same day next day.

You have it the next day then.

So if you shipped it today, Wed, you should have it back by Friday end of day

I agree, any ECU mods on NA cars are small but on NA cars it is cumulative effect of a bunch of small changes.

Exhaust, Xpipe, air filter, pulleys, ECU flash, you get the picture. Small changes but all added could get you 30-40 hp and 20-30 ftlb torque.

And it is driveable across the RPM range.

Agree that 3.62 gears in a DCT is a better mod but for a 6MT, nehhh.

Just letting everyone know about the deal.

I completely agree.
I am not sure about the 3.62 but I notice decent torque gains from the 4.10 with my 6MT. You pay more money but has anyone considered Tuner's Software. There has been a lot of testing on race cars and apparently the gains are greater.

My bad. I got that eta from other members that posted their experience.

Who can reccomend a great place to take my car for a wheel alignment?

I changed the springs myself and will need to get this done in a week or two.

PS, Tirecraft on Macleod is not an option.

Thanks
Guys
