  2. Pro Cup 2 Advice - Low Temp Driving

    100 miles is nothing. Unless it's freezing or snowing you should be fine. I'd suggest, before you leave the dealer, you check the tire pressures. They will likely be around 40 psi (mine were) which will make cold weather traction worse. Lower them to 32-34 range and you should be good...
  3. 700a help

    Another vote for 700A package. Was not going to order it but dealer convinced me. It's nice and outside of the Handling Package it's the only option I added.
  4. Supercharged GT350 Makes Insane Power on the Dyno

    I think that is fantastic, seriously. Maybe it's no problem.

  6. What are the track guys using for pads?

    I used to have pads like that too. The PFC Z-54 calipers had huge thick pads. However, I don't think the Mustang and Shelby are that bad, yes, they are not as thick but their total surface area is pretty darn large so you don't really see as much decrease in pad thickness as you might expect...
  7. Supercharged GT350 Makes Insane Power on the Dyno

    Well 700+ WHP is impressive. My question, for how long? Might be worth considering some durability testing as it seems to me this big of a boost with forced induction might very well exacerbate the known reliability problems with this platform. You guys run it for 2,000+ miles and then get...
  8. Kuhmo 730s vs Supercar 3Rs

    That's a bummer, especially since tires are so expensive. When folks see wear like that the standard response, for some reason is, toe, toe, toe. Yes, too much toe out will cause that wear, however, for track use, if you've had a decent alignment, it's NOT the toe wearing out the inside...
  9. What are the track guys using for pads?

    Okay, I just talked to Cobalt Friction, as I have to order a new set of fronts, and evidently, I need to amend my recommendation. They do NOT recommend same pad front and back, for track use (autocross might be okay). Reason being, yes you maybe could get more rear brake bias, but with our...
  10. What are the track guys using for pads?

    I've typically run Xr3, but I think I might go to Xr2. Reason being I want more rear brake bias. I was at the BMW 50th anniversary of BMW M, this past Friday, and was talking to Bill Auberlin asking about what he does from brake zone to apex. The pro-race guys run the brake bias at full-rear...
  11. What are the track guys using for pads?

    I've run and like both Pagid yellows (both old and new generation) and Cobalt Friction XR2 front (not running slicks). Pagid are excellent pads and hard to fault, however, I think the Cobalt Friction pad is slightly better. Also, with new inflation price adjustment that happened with Pagid...
  12. Mach1 options for 2-piece Front Rotors, who’s makes best one?

    I have PFC rotors front and back. Answers to your questions, simple 1. Feel the difference in weight. NO 2. Worth the cost for street use. NO If you're just talking about street use, then just stick with stock, perfectly fine rotors. PFC has a nice rotor change system, those folks running...
  13. Steeda MagneRide Controller for HP conversion

    I think this would be a really good, possibly superior conversion to an HP equivalent package. If this is what you are interested in, why not? If you are going to go to the track here and there, then I'd suggest something a bit better than the Ford Performance camber plates, Those are limited...

  16. Granger Ford & Mach 1 Review

    The BMW is a really nice car. I suspect you are like me and prefer a really good naturally aspirated engine compared to forced induction. The problem now is the E90 is getting to be a pretty old car. The real problem though, which is why I decided it was time to change is there's still a lot...
  17. Hydraulic Clutch Line

    Thank you! Yes, that makes sense to me and is a good explanation for what is going on.
  18. Hydraulic Clutch Line

    Have driven the car and put a few more miles on it. The clutch chatter is gone. The engagement is smoother and consistent. I'd like someone to explain why this is but now I really believe it and this might be the best reason to get the clutch slave cylinder replacement line if you have an...
  19. Hydraulic Clutch Line

    I just did the Steeda clutch line last weekend. The installation is not bad, and if you're careful the clips are no big deal either. The only two things that slowed me down are the transmission connector must be fully seated until there's an audible click. I put it on, it sure looked fully...
  20. Livernois Motorsports Gen 3 Stage 3 Cylinder Heads

    I think these are nice heads. However, the main point in my view is how good the stock heads are in terms of flow and performance. Let's just take that they are good for 20 HP gain for n/a application. So, we're netting about 3 HP per cylinder which is VERY modest. Kudos to the Ford engine...
