    If you remove aluminum bolts and replace them with steel, angle tightening is not required and should not be used. I would guess if you angle tightened steel bolts in an aluminum engine, you would...

    LOL, I thought that was Jackie Stewart. "I don't believe in bad luck, just poor preparation." What a great quote.

    Installing the seal is not that difficult.

    All you need is the old seal, half the crank bolts, an equal number of large washers and a little bit of patience to install the RMS. It's not as super...

    The 2C6B is a secondary bank 1 O2 "system check" code. The other codes are bank 1 and 2 primary O2 sensor trim codes. I have read the response time of O2 sensors can slow over time.

    Exactly. That picture is pretty fancy, but the pipe should at least neck down in the area the fitting is welded in. You need to speed up the gas sufficiently so slight vacuum is generated relative to...

    That's an interesting picture. You think crankcase pressure forced it out? I am pretty sure that is what happened to mine.

    I would do the rear main seal as well. I did mine and used four crank bolts and the old seal to install the new seal. The old seal had completely lost its elasticity.

    I imagine something like that would work fine.

    If you are an AT and intend to do some hot laps, you are limiting the life of your transmission by not using an axillary cooler. Because my car is a...

    I didn't know these existed but there are tools that allow you to form a bead in a rigid tube by hand.

    I plan to install an ATF cooler in front of the driver's wheel opposite the engine oil cooler. That's right where the PPK rad goes though.

    There are two steel lines that run on the left side of...

    I think it is interesting and obviously it is a concept so a production version would probably look a bit different. Besides the color, I like the looks. I am sure BMW does not want to take sales...

    LOL, sometimes I just flows.

    PWM is still current control. You just modulate the voltage to control the average current. In a motor or actuator this gives you control over the torque or force.

    It looks like the guy spent a ton of money on engine and didn't have any left over for suspension. Or maybe something was just done wrong. The nose of the car dips...

    I applaud you for getting this data. What is most surprising to me is not the aftermarket intakes flowing so much better than stock. It is the enormous difference between the stock intakes.
