Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
Was here at NC BIKE event last year June 2018.. Crashed on my bike and broke two shoulder bones and 2 fractured ribs :rolleyes:.. Had my knee down on turn 9 at almost 100mph and some idiot I was passing decided to break his raceline and run into me :mad:.. BUT, after a big *** surgery with 23 screws and two plates later I was back on the saddle in less than 4 months :cool:.. Hoping to hit this track again this month on the bike again..

Getting closer and closer. Working on the tune. She needs more fuel!

Nice, what are you using Tune purposes?
Raul,

She was on the dyno much of Sunday getting a custom tune.

A couple things...First, I need higher-than-our-crappy 91 octane. We ordered a case of Torco :cool: to help. Running really lean, so they pulled the timing, way way back.

Second, my new OEM ///m5 fuel pump cannot keep up, with my upgraded injectors. NUKE fuel rail and NUKE pressure regulator are great -- now, we are in the process of installing a fuel pump from a Porsche Turbo.

Initial numbers, with pulled timing, and cats are 284rwhp/270ftlb to the wheels. Healthy stock s38b38s are about 300+rwhp/265+ftlb to the wheels. We are leaving a bunch of horses on the table. She's not happy at 3500rpm and 6500rpm, but smooths out after 7000+. Driving her around the shop today, I didn't take her past 4000 -- too much "stuff" rolling around in the car. I heard the fire extinguisher rolling around in back; when I finally grabbed it -- I had to re-insert the safety pin :oops:.

Next steps: Install the fuel pump and fine tune. Also just ordered a new MCS 3Way Remote suspension for the e28.

Wow, Woody! Gorgeous car!

Interesting on the Torco case. Have you only tried it on the E28? Can't wait to hear the results after you get that new fuel pump installed. Will you be attending ShiftSector? I was trying to get a hold of Jim to see if he can send me a tune on race gas for the E60 but have been unsuccessful :(. I wanted to try and run race gas and see what the E60 can do on the airstrip.

Congrats on the MCS 3way for the e28 man!! Should be fun!

There are 6 clutches (the discs with the slots) 3 per side and the cross drilled plates are the plates that go in between them. The ramps that were running will give it 40% on accl and 30% in braking. The guy that made it said the lighter setting is more than enough but I set it to the more aggressive setting. It’s going to be a bit more aggressive than the custom 3.91 in my e60.
