Very nice Jon, I wouldn't mind getting a ride in it either. What size rubber you got on?

How does the SC affect daily drivability? Any issues (CEL, rough idle, etc..)? Or is it smooth like a stock car?

Also, 31.4% drivetrain loss? Doesn't that seem a little high? Most cars it's 17%-25%, no?

Its just like a stock car no issues very smooth the power comes on like stock just lifted. If you didn't hear the BOV open at cruise you probably wouldn't even know its boosted.

Well you have to remember my baseline was 310~whp On this Dyno. I'm not calculating the number as a loss but just how the Dyno reads. Every stock M3 i've see has dynoed 303-318 stock on this dyno. Most people calculate 17-25% on a Dynojet or Dynapack where stock M3s dyno at around 335-350whp. If I were to dyno on a Dynapack/Dynojet I would probably get around 485-490 easily.So this dyno is just to show the gain from stock which you can basically add to whatever Baseline you feel like.

Thanks for sharing. It looks awesome.

It looks like the only source of air for the filter is the hood intake and brake vent? It doesn't look like there's any room for another source of air?

Intercooler only serves as a cooling source for the air once it's in the system. It doesn't serve in any way as an intake.
