So i took my car out to the track for the first time ever last night. Pretty disapointed in the end. The best run i got was a 16.5 at 85 MPH. I was hopinf to at least break into the 15s. Aside from the knock off chip that i got the car is pretty much stock, aside from the little tricks that we did when we rebuilt the motor last summer. We are pretty good at finding power from small power engines, so that makes this even worse. It's moslty in the bottom end that i lose. I took two 5.0 stangs and beat them up to about the 1/8 marker, then lose everything. With all the torque, it feels like im still picking up fast, but i'm not.
Maybe everyone was right when they say that you can't get much power out of an eta. I'm thinking of selling mine, to get an i, but i also wonder if i upgrade the cam, get a set of headers, ingition and other performance parts, that won't involve boring out the engine, that if it will be worth it.
We're going back out, in a couple weeks and gonna finich the AC removal, and try and save weight where ever we can, to see if that helps. Is there any places that i can alter to save weight.
If anyone knows of a cheap 325i for sale in the western canada region, let me know, and my car just may be for sale.
