How often would you have to fill the tank with just everyday normal driving? Just got my headers, already have the beast in the shop getting those put on. Now just need my SC kit, haha.

Paul, what kind of rims do you have? How wide are they in the back? I am thinking about getting some 20x11s in the back to help with traction.

K cool, thanks. I talked to a BMW master mechanic today and he knows our cars in and out. He said the weak link on our SMG is the Pump/piston or something of that nature. Sorry but I dont know much about cars. He still said that the SMG itself is really strong and we should be fine turning up the shift speed with the SC. He said it is actually better for the clutch to shift at faster speeds. He also said that our engines are bullett proof. He said they could take more boost and they were actually very detuned for the M5 and M6 cars. He said they are perfectly safe to rev to 10,000 RPM. He said our ECU's are very smart and would kill anything if they detect pre-ignition.

With all that said he gave me a smirk, and said, "Now be careful with the boost, don't gover over 9 or 10 lbs of boost with out rebuilding the engine!"

He really knows our cars, he had my stock headers out of the car in 2 hours......that is blazing fast.

Any reccomendations for wheels?

I have 10.5s in the rear and stuck with 19" for a reason, performance wise it is better.

Looking at some DR tires but on a wider 18" rim just for those special occasions.

I am planning on having the injection system kick in at a certain psi, still have not decided at what point yet, also if I do set it high then it will not come on during daily driving so it should last quite a long time. I am looking at a 3 galloon tank so it will last a LONG time.

Be very careful while using the water/meth. I have a lot of experience with it and have used it on the M5 before. Make sure you are tuning it with boost and injector duty cycle. You dont want to cause any damage to the engine long term.
