FluidMotorUnion "So We Made Some E9x Velocity Stacks.... "

Saw this on another site

Made entirely from 6061-grade aluminum, this new velocity stack set for the E9x M3 was conceived, designed, cut out and assembled in-house at Fluid MotorUnion. Our system incorporates an Aquamist water-methanol injection system, which runs from the tank in the back to a specially-designed manifold that splits up the 6mm inlet to eight 4mm direct-injection nozzles, which are placed at the ends of the arms that stretch over each individual stack. The tubing from the manifold to the nozzles, just like on the DCM3, are fed through specific channels in the arms themselves. When all’s said and done, it looks like the grim reaper’s put his special touch on this system.






You may notice a couple nozzles are missing. We’re getting them ASAP, but we didn’t want to delay this entire post (and all the picture-taking behind it) just because of a couple small nozzles. If you’ll be at Supercar Saturdays this coming week (and if not, I suggest you come see what it’s all about), we’ll be displaying the final product there, as well.





We’d like to think it turned out well. Only time will tell, however. We still have to mount the AN fittings to the catch can and finish routing that system, too. After we get the nozzles and remainder of the catch can installed, we’re going to try and get some videos of the sound, and perhaps a dyno run or two. It’s all on the way.

Definitely looks great and I love that they are using W/M Injection instead of the NOS they used on their E46 M3 Stacks.

Hopefully they can share some numbers with us and gains. This would be a great opportunity to show how their tuning is because we already know that their fabrication skills are absolutely jaw-dropping.

Thanks a whole boatload, guys! Good to know that art still has its place in the world

But seriously, we appreciate knowing that our hard work and off-kilter take on the BMW world is working out. If anybody from Chicago is reading this, check out the E90 in person at Supercar Saturdays this Saturday at the Arboretum of South Barrington, 9am-11am.

And much thanks go out to Nate@IND for beating me to the punch and posting this up!
