Garage List
2011 997.2 Turbo S  [4.71]
2013 e92 M3  [4.55]
2013 BMW X5  [0.00]
'13 e92 MW/Fox Red ZCP DCT w/ ESS 650, MRF, Akra, Stop Tech, GC

* Updated pics on page 3 with ZCPs powercoated black *

* and my M3's new garage mate on page 3 as well *


So other than the Snow Performance progressive water/meth injection system laying around awaiting installation, I'm pretty much done with mods for now. Most of the stuff (blower, exhaust) was installed shortly after I picked up the car in September. I love the stock ZCP look (wheels, ride height) and suspension feel and even though I track the car, will be keeping the suspension stock other than the camber plates. On the Airstrip events the stock suspension is advantageous as the soft springs allow for more "squat" on the initial hit and one of the reasons my car doesn't blow-off the tires (most cars at this HP level spin on the initial hit).

All work on the car was done by Malek at MRF Engineering in Irvine, CA.

Full list of mods is as follows:

ESS VT2 650 S/C w/ 8,600 RPM redline (583 RWHP at 7.5psi)
MRF Velaforza catless x-pipe (my secret sauce)
Akra slip-on
StopTech BBK 380/355 with cross-drilled rotors
Stock ZCP suspension with GC camber plates (-2.3 camber up front)
Stock ZCP wheels with Michelin PSS 255/35 F and 275/35 R
MS Spacers (15mm F and 10mm R)

Enjoy friends.

Your car is a monster. I would hate to line up against it.

Beautiful! Very clean, a monster in disguise. I agree, the stock suspension is pretty awesome. Look forward to some video's with her.

Ask and you shall receive! My latest airstrip attack vid when I was on the ESSVT2 625 kit:

Badass! I love how no ground is lost on shifts with the DCT...not like some of your competition w/manual tranny's. Very impressive runs! Thanks, always enjoy your videos!

I love these past couple of cars that have just rolled out with ZCP's and a BBK. I think they look fantastic!
