  1. Weird laggy boost, intermittantly?

    9-5 Workshop
    The Proparts DIC was the cause of the intermittent power problem, but it never threw a code. Now I just need to figure out why I have around 150hp, which I think is caused by a boost leak but I haven't had a change to take the entire front apart to see, since the car has been pretty depressing...

  3. A little foggy on effective N/A tuning

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    The above pic is actually from Thompson! The autobox isn't too bad, but people say they might explode. I beg to differ and think you could keep it running fine by just putzing around. Forget the power, what you will need is handling, so first make the car as light as you possibly can, find a...
  4. A little foggy on effective N/A tuning

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Time to revive this from the dead once again. I've just splurged and have a 2.1 NA with 117k miles on it about ready to pick up from the yard (already paid and plucked). Up until now, the answer I went for tuning was to go T5, but I've been having a few tune issues with it and need to hit the...
  5. What year range is the best starting point to build a 9-3SS race car?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    It's a possibility we will run a chumpcar race or two, specifically due to our proximity to lime rock and Watkins Glen, but right now the sole goal is to compete for the championship in AER next year. ;ol;
  6. What year range is the best starting point to build a 9-3SS race car?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Thanks for the opinions, but we have been racing long enough to be able to get anything to work. Any handling problems can be dialed out in setup. Great to know about the 6-speed handling more power, I'll look into this. The SAI valve thing is good to know as well, but we will be able to...
  7. What year range is the best starting point to build a 9-3SS race car?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    In the planning phase to build a BMW killing AER full blown race car out of a new gen 9-3, and looking for initial information on choosing a car to begin the build process. Looking to stay with a 2.0 turbo engine, building out around 250-300hp. Planning on very extensive Aerodynamic...

    Here's a gallery of images that I took while there. Sorry about the lack of later gen cars, most of those made it into the video, which I'll start editing soon. http://imgur.com/a/t51xg#0
  9. 2.0L Coil Packs for Cheap?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm curious, what kind of spark plugs and dielectric grease did you put on these cars that are experiencing bad coils? Have you confirmed that the Ionization Module is not faulty? I have seen that a few times.

    Just to follow up on this thread, eEuro sells the OES fuel pump for a very reasonable price http://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/43311/Fuel-Pump-Assembly-TU301/ My FP sounds like an idling jet (which is cool, but I'm worried of an impending cold night failure) so I will replace it, make a DIY video...
  13. Just got a brake job done, now ABS light and Brake Fluid light is on when braking..

    C900 Workshop
    Finally, after going through 3 bunk used accumulators, I got a good one! Light off, brakes work well. Now I've got an extra good ABS module that I have no idea what to do with.
  14. Left Xenon headlight super high suddenly, right side adjustment is fine

    9-5 Workshop
    I had a look at the housing before taking the light out and noticed you can get to the test button with the light installed ;ol; The shutter seems to work as it should, and the lights are back to normal. Hope it was just a jammed shutter because I'm about to allocate funds to something else...
  15. Left Xenon headlight super high suddenly, right side adjustment is fine

    9-5 Workshop
    Oh man, I wish I had seen that while the thing was out of the car!! I guess back out it will come tomorrow :roll: Thanks ;ol;
  16. Left Xenon headlight super high suddenly, right side adjustment is fine

    9-5 Workshop
    I took the light out and found it to be full of exploded D1S bulb from the previous owner. I took the main bulb out to take a look at the shutter. I've never looked inside one before, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary. The shutter was fully upright, and when I gently poked it with a...
  17. Left Xenon headlight super high suddenly, right side adjustment is fine

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey, I was wondering if anyone else experienced this, one of my headlights is stuck on what I assume to be high beam or something. When I pull up to a wall, the left side is super high, and the pattern almost resembles a Japanese 'rising sun' design. Last time it happened, I opened the hood...
  18. Just got a brake job done, now ABS light and Brake Fluid light is on when braking..

    C900 Workshop
    If it was a bad pressure switch, would it continue to keep running the pump after each brake application? Wouldn't it not do that? Those things are expensive as all get out too. :cry:
  19. Just got a brake job done, now ABS light and Brake Fluid light is on when braking..

    C900 Workshop
    Sounds good, I think I got the last one on the internet off eBay for $150. 'Tested good, no lights'. That should get her back on the road, which is very important since she has a medical condition that requires frequent hospital visits. A new one is crazy money! Who knows even how long the...
  20. Just got a brake job done, now ABS light and Brake Fluid light is on when braking..

    C900 Workshop
    I asked her about it and she sent me a video of the key to on, with her phone resting near the brake master. Basically, every time she presses the brakes, the system makes a noise like a very aggrivated cat. Almost a groany buzz. I assume this is the pump? If so, the accumulator is...
