Bought some corner balancing scales, though I havenít used them for that yet.

Iím a bit disappointed. The truck/semi weight station had told me the car weighted 3071 lbs, but it would seem that was optimistic. 3112 lbs with a 3/4 tank. Pretty sure that means Iím not going to be able to get it under 3000 lbs with a full interior and quiet (stock weight) muffler

On the other hand, 52.6% front, 47.4% rear is better than I was expecting! 52.1% front with me in the car.





My winter projects will likely get it just under 3100 lbs.

Wish my e92 weighed 3100 but on your e46 I bet it feels fantastic especially around the twisties

Sheís feeling pretty good. 351 rwhp NA (sae dynojet), last time I had her on a dyno. Assuming 17% drivetrain loss stays constant, thatís ~420-425 at the crank

Should be useful on track (running on my head unit):



Only needs these little sensors on the valve stems:

Iím very pleased with the stock look of the avin3, and all the functionality itís enabled (not to mention the ~50 lbs of weight saving)!
