So I had the car dyno'd at Kar on Saturday.

My new power in 4th gear:
147.4wkw@3446rpm
490nm@2351rpm

5th gear:
144.4wkw@3311rpm

I'm super happy with the results.

Thanks mnr
The "before" was done on FR&R's dyno.
Made 104.6wkw and 359nm stock.
Made 122wkw and 420nm after FR&R.
Now 147.4wkw and 490nm at Kar after DP and RK Motion. Car pulls much smoother as well. Much more fun to drive plus all the safety features is in tack.

Update Time

So seeing as I make a lot more torque now, I needed new rear tyres sooner.
In Kuruman we pay a premium price for everything. I got a quote for two new Bridgestone Potenza RE050 RFT at R8k without alignment. I the city this would have been R6.5k for alles.

So I had to make a call. Elton did not make it much easier with his 403M wheels that was for sale.
It's awesome to be apart of a lekker tuning family. Kyle (Low Flyer)had a look at the wheels for me. Wife wanted to know everything is all good on them. Everything checked out good.
So I made the payment to Elton on friday, what a nice guy, and my father collected them on saturday.

They original 403M style BMW rims with Toyo tyres.

I need spacers now. But need to sort a few other bits on the car first. Want to do my damper pulley, Shocks with springs and gearbox service before year end.

Also sprayed my plastics. They supposed to be gloss black. But i sort them out in december with proper 2k paint. Can spray is ****! I set the standard very high for myself as this was how my parts normally looked on clients cars. According to me you will never ever get this type of results with can spray and polish. I like deep gloss black parts!
