Steve says hello - new member

I'm building an E30 track car with an M44 and "Blower". I instruct for BMW, Porsche, and Audi driving schools. My day job is Director of Motorsports Marketing at ESCORT Radar. We sponsor the Rahal Letterman Racing BMW Factory M3's. Come see me at many of the ALMS races. I hope to get ESCORT involved in Grand Am this coming season as well. I am pretty hands on in the car building department, when time permits. I have several projects in the works. I am designing an aftermarket big brake system for the E28 1988 M5, if any of you need an upgrade for track use. Shortly thereafter, I will be designing the same upgrade for E30's, all on a budget. None of that $3000.00 kit price crap.

Blower & Ignition & Brakes

Yes, I will be using the Downing Atlanta kit on my M44, but with a little more boost. Stock kit is 6psi. After talking with Eaton and Magnuson at SEMA, they have recommended 9-10psi to get the needed 350HP on the ground. The plan is for 36-38 LB injectors with a Mega Squirt to run the electronics. Of course, after the Wilwood kit is finished for the E28 M5, I will have a chance to focus on the same kind of system for the E30. The E30 will probably get 6 pistons up front with new 12" rotors, and 4 pistons in the back. It is going to be a very busy winter here in Ohio. Thank goodness I have my son Aaron ('98 TechnoViolet M3 Convertible) to help out. Also my friend Greg ('88 M5 track car) will be pitching in as well. Pics and story to follow much later.
