But steve @ EAS worked the magic and I super happy with it. Can't wait for my GTSV front diffuser and rear diffuser to complete my look
Nice, ye that hood looks really good I was worried about the fitment all this time....maybe time to shop

That 328Xi is so sweet!! Maybe I'm biased because we have the same wheels.

Post the pics of my car from the dyno the other day

Wow Mike Benvo, your E90 looks AMAZING with those LMs!!! How much power did you end up putting down with your tune and supporting mods?

Nice pics as always, anthony@eas! Thanks for sharing. For the record, all the dyno shops here in Chicago need to take a lesson on proper cooling for dyno runs from you guys...I've been to several dyno locations and they all use a tiny dinky fan.

Thank you!! Car is really comming together. I will be posting a photoshoot of it in the next couple of weeks. The LCI + BBS really was a game changer.

Last dyno was about 370WHP and 272WTQ, thats with the stock redline. Going to raise it back to 8,600 or 8,700 and it should be hitting 380+.

It has dynoed before 411whp, but EAS's dyno is very realistic and I like it for that reason.

Here is a dyno between Archies car (orange M3) and my car (his car had stock rear section) - you can see how his car picks up in the last few RPM's with the increased redline:

(My car is runfile 11, blue, archies is red). M3's seem to have pretty wide variances between cars.

I'd like to thank EAS for hosting the dyno and Anthony for all of the great pictures. Tom is a great guy to work with, and Anthony is an excellent photographer! It's really nice to see repeatable gains from an intake system on the dyno.
