Yeah. This is a really good mod to increase power availability, but you need to make sure you can do without ACS. I wouldn;t do it unless I was also doing some other stuff, like cams and M50 intake manifold, etc.
looks interesting, id like a testimonial on it first though... you shuold get it and write a review!
I am waiting on the Samco Silicone Throttle Body Boot (the blue one at the bottom of buuhh99's link) to replace my stock one. I will need to perform the ACS delete to make this boot work. I will post my findings.
I am in cleveland and see plenty of snow, but put dedicated snows on my car each October.
This is the 2nd boot that had dry rotted on me! used:
It is a fairly common procedure. My 95 M3 doesnt have it anyways. Most 96+ guys with a lot of suspension work delete it not only for track use, but also because it gets in the way of most strut tower braces (at least the strut tower braces that actually work).
If you're worried about weather and this boot you could spend a bti mroe money for an aluminum one. AA sells one. I think bimmerworld might have some also.
Send a PM to the AA Tunign sponsor on this forum and ask him for a price. many guys do it on boosted cars because they dont want this boot blowing off under positive manifold pressure. AA's website price is $80
Excellent link ///M Power, thanks! I can see the benefits for those that "got boost" and was orginally wanting something in Aluminum. I have been contemplating the ASC delete since I started wrenching on this car last spring. I have lived without it for years before I bought my 328i 2 years ago.
