Talking Stage 2 w/ e85...

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Current setup:

Jb4 stage 2 / e85, KNN drop in filters, exhaust flap open

All I have to say is WOW! This car is an absolute ANIMAL. With the stock tires 1st 2nd and 3rd gear were pretty much non existent ( it was 30 degrees out) but still, I was astounded.

Just bumped up to 295/30/19 in the rear yesterday so we'll see how she puts power down now. I can only imagine what downpipes / full exhaust is going to do to this car

UPDATE: 295's helped a bit. It is still fairly cold, but 2nd is hooking up a bit better and 3rd is gripping all the way through.

Dp and full exhaust help, but don't expect much of a gain.

Hey Bro, I understand exactly what you're dealing with. How much e85 did you put in? What brand tires did you buy?

Hopefully this summer, I'm thinking about 18x11 rears and 18x10 fronts.

Car feels great on E85. I put in 10 gallons of 93 and 4 gallons of e85

Florida finally got a big cooler without any rain and damn its fun. DSC off is something i won't try on public roads.

I was under the impression that for stage 2 exhaust modification was needed.

I was thinking of getting the JB4 tune with evolution race works downpipes. How's the tune compared to stock?

Downpipes are on the way, my car is running great with this setup and the only exhaust mod is my open valves.

Highly recommend getting a JB4. This is my 3rd car that's been running a JB4 and it really wakes the cars up!
