All done so far no issues..car pulls pretty good 1 thru 5 feels pretty strong the SC really kicks in at around 4,000 rpm all the way up to redline this tune makes the car very responsive...before this new tune I had Ess tune which was pretty decent. The car now feels quicker..this is my first impression I will be taking it for a longer run and post some more.. I'm pretty happy with the outcome

Nice....I love reading when someone tackles something from start to finish without playing around. I will definitely be waiting to hear more impressions from you. Definitely a nice looking install.

I bet it does feel faster...you probably added 70+ whp.

Do you plan to dyno anytime soon....or if not, at least log some runs to see how A/F ratios look....and where the injectors are at since you went straight to the smaller pulley?

Also do you know approximately how much boost your seeing with that pulley?

Thanks.

Yes I will dyno car in the next few weeks .. yes the car feels faster for sure and I'm glad I kept my AA headers..once I get the MILVS done and the smaller pully installed I will have Bob from Stage Fab Performance re tune car again and then dyno again.

I can't wait to see how it goes for you. With the MILVS and smaller pulley, it should be the perfect package. That linear response that just keeps pulling and pulling has got to be a great feeling!

Milvs really woke my car up below 4K rpm.

Nice!
By the way, keep an eye on the silicon charge pipe (from S/C to engine), it will suffer from thermo-expand and become loose in a few months, re-tighten it every now and then.

Update car is running great! I'll be posting some video soon...Bob at Stage Fabrication & Performance did a marvelous job with the custom tune and ATH auto tune house did a fantastic job installing the ESS SC gen3 I couldn't be more happier with the results today was raining in Florida so I could not do any video. Tomorrow should will be sunny and cold perfect weather for some driving video.. I will be going up to Daytona for the ROAR before the Rolex24 hrs at Daytona. I will shoot some video on my way.

Lol...that was close. Love to see some acceleration videos of the cluster if you ever get a safe chance to film some. Car sounds great!

Would definitely like to see more of the car post-performance upgrades like this.

I'm very keen on doing similar things down the road to mine (you responded to my past thread about the 1M bumper) finally got mine installed today. Looking finish some exterior mods and bang out some maintenance then look into performance upgrades. So please keep it coming!

Also, what lip/splitter are you using on the front bumper if you don't mind me inquiring?

Thanks!

If you have questions feel free to ask.
In all honestly it's much easier to just go for an N54/55 for power, unless you really love your current car like I do lol.
I really do love my car and I don't think I could ever sell it for an N54/55 135.. I should have done that initially but I wanted something more simple!

Plus the amount of moolah I have dropped on my 1er now... I would never get that back/not even close to what I would want.

I've read your thread and watched your mountain run.. sweet stuff and glad to hear about your car not giving you issues
