Doc Race Kit

Well its been a while and I finally got some decide photos of the car in the sun so I thought it'd update everyone on what I've been doing for the last few months. The car has gone through quite a transformation in a year and a half.

Lets start, I ended up going with a Doc Race Turbo Kit and when with a BB 6062 Precision Turbo. It looked amazing as you've seen from all the other unboxes. John and team does a great job over there to make sure everything fits properly.

Everything went together smooth, had no issues, car started up first time no problem. its had no issues since, just trying to work out finish as in Portland area we don't have easily accessible (only a few pumps).

Since I always want to keep myself busy and working on the car in some facet, I went ahead and thought the biggest bang for buck was bushings, specifically subframe, diff, and transmission bushings. I went with AKG Motorsports being that I hear good things from a few other members.



Being that everyone talks about how bad the install is without any space to get the bushings out etc. I decide to go ahead and drop the complete rear end instead. It was actually relatively easy, with some help from my dad we had it dropped in 3 hours (I had exhaust already dropped before). Its pretty start forward, we disconnected brake lines, e-brake from inside car, remove brake sensors and abs sensor, remove the 4 subframe and it come right out.

Once out it was very. I got the harbor freight axle tool and then went and got a bunch of threaded rods with bolts and washers and they came out easily. I was surprised being all the stuff I heard online. For install it was easy, I throw them in the freeze for a few days before and they side right in. once in for 10 mins they had already expanded.

as for transmission mounts, they were start swaps, I did have to drill the mounting points out 1mm but that was straight forward. but what I was excited for was the RTD shifter!!



Thanks to Maher at RTD shifters, He hooked me up with one of there RTD Carbon Fiber V4 DSSR Shifter. the quality on it is amazing and I couldn't wait to see how it feels in the car. the install is pretty straight forward. I followed the budget bimmers youtube video which was really helpful. Looks amazing and fits great! Didn't have to trim but choose to so it was easier to get the center console in and out. Cant wait to give it a shot but sitting on the ground and going through gears it feels incredible!

I am currently waiting on getting my stock regulator figured out so once that happens I'll give it a shot and see how it feels. Still working on what I want to do as far as fueling for the car. I am thinking running port meth injection as its the easiest to get around here and will all me to hit my power goal.

Since the weathers been eh and still working on getting my tags. I decided to do the Precision Raceworks coil pack. I was pretty stoked as I have all mismatch coil packs right now and have wanted to replace them for peace of mind.

The install is straight forward. Only issues I ran into was with the fitment with heat shield. I didn't wanna take off the turbo or Downpipes so I wasn't able to get the 2 bolts for the bracket installed. Im not to worried as its a pain to get in there and it doesn't move as all and in a way its "wedged" in there.

Otherwise, everything else was installed very smooth. Adding as much heat protection as possible. I have some DE heat shroud that ill wrap around the wires on top of the coil packs and down by the turbo.





I also did the catch can so you can see a big line running above the radium goes to my catch can. Just a basic setup right now but I definitely want to setup a "real" PCV system.






I decided to roll the car out and wash it and install the BMW performance dead pedal to go with the set I installed a few years ago. I think it came out good.
