DynoJet dyno test BMW E46 330i by MCE Racing at Thunderhill Raceway

Kevin of MCE Racing (located at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA) tests my car on the Dyno. 2003 (E46) BMW 330i with M54B30 engine, manual transmission, and 168,000 miles. Car shows 199.5 peak RWHP on this Dyno, 9.7 more than the previous test. HP gain due to tune (Conforti Shark Injector) and Evosport underdrive pulleys. Test done in November 2012. HP number is SAE corrected. Temp was about 60F with high humidity.

Part 1: Installing shocks, struts and springs on a BMW 3 series 99 thru 05 (E46)

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In Part-1 of this two part series, we will replace the front shock/strut/spring assembly. See Part-2 for the rear shock and spring replacement. The Bentley repair manuals will cover standard shock and spring replacement for the various BMW and MINI models. This DIY will assume that the DIYer has the applicable Bentley manual for additional reference as well as fastener torque values. Note that we will be installing the Bilstein PSS-10 coil-over kit. However, the procedures would be the same for any common shock/strut replacement (including installing sport springs, if desired). PARTS USED: • New shocks/struts (Bilstein, Koni, Sachs, etc.) • New sport or stock replacement springs, if desired (BMW, BavAuto, Eibach, etc.) • New Shock install kits (compression bumpers, dust shields, spring pads, etc.) • New upper strut and shock mounts • New strut & shock mount gaskets (as required) • Rear shock mount reinforcing plates TOOLS USED: • Bentley Repair Manual • BavAuto Non-Marring pry bar set * BavAuto spring compressor tool • 13mm through 18mm ½"drive socket & ratchet set with various extensions • 4mm through 8mm Allen keys or bits (for ratchet use) • 13mm through 18mm combination wrench set • Assorted flat and Phillips screwdrivers PROCEDURE: FRONT (applies directly to the E46 3-series, but others are similar): 1) Safely raise the front of car, with suspension hanging. 2) Remove the wheels. 3) Disconnect the upper end of the swaybar link from the shock/strut bracket. Note that the through-stud for the link's upper joint (as well as the lower) must be secured using a 16mm to 18mm thin open end wrench. This particular link is 16mm. 4) Remove the strut mounting pinch-bolt. The bolt goes through the strut mounting clamp on the wheel hub/spindle assembly and has a nut on the opposite side (some models do not use nuts, the bolt threads into the clamp). 5) Set the mounting bracket for the ABS sensor wire, brake pad wear sensor wire (left side only) and brake fluid hose aside. Note that other models may have these hoses mounted in a bracket that is affixed to the shock/strut housing. In these cases, remove the wires and hose from the bracket. 6) If the vehicle has adaptive headlights (self-aiming), disconnect the sensor link from the control arm or the sensor bell-crank arm. The sensors may only be present on one side of the vehicle. 7) Place a support or jack under the lower control arm to support the suspension as the upper strut mount nuts are removed. 8) Remove the three 13mm nuts that secure the upper mount to the body (strut tower), under the hood. 9) Gently lower the jack or support, from step-6, and lower the strut assembly. Pull the strut assembly up and out of the hub/spindle. A helper may need to push down on the hub/spindle as you pull the strut upward. If the clamp is too tight for the strut to pull out, use a cold-chisel or large flat-blade screwdriver as a wedge to open the clamp a bit. Tap the wedge into the split in the clamp, widening the clamp, allowing the strut to be removed. 10) Once removed from the hub/spindle clamp, remove the strut assembly from the wheel well area. 11) Install a spring compressor to the spring on the strut assembly. Compress the spring until you can tell that the spring pressure is relieved from the upper and lower spring seats. 10) Remove the upper shock/strut nut that is at the top of the assembly, in the center of the upper mount. To remove the nut, you can use the method shown in the Spring 2007 issue of our Fast Times newsletter, page-7, or you can use an impact gun. DO NOT use an impact gun for re-assembly! 11) Once the nut is removed, disassemble the upper mount, upper spring perch and washers from the shock's piston rod. Keep track of the various washers and their locations. 12) Pull the spring (and compressor) off of the shock/strut. 13) Assemble the new shock/strut and/or spring. 14) We're sorry, but the description can not be any longer (youtube requirement).

Slightly raise the suspension (just enough to remove the downward tension on the shock). 4) Remove the lower shock mount bolt. 5) Lower the jack and allow the suspension to hang free. 6) Remove the trunk side trim panel to access the upper shock mount. 7) Remove the two 13mm nuts from the upper shock mount, at the top of the shock tower. 8) Lower the shock out of the vehicle. 9) Assemble the new shock with new compression bumper, dust tube and upper mount. Be sure to re-use the large lower and upper washers for the upper mount. These washers must cup away from the mount. lower washer cups downward and upper washer cups upward. 10) If the spring is being replaced, it can be removed BEFORE re-installing the shock. Have a helper pull downward on the wheel hub assembly and pull the spring out from between the chassis and the upper control arm. 11) Using new upper and lower spring pads, install the new spring in the same manner as the original was removed. Install the new spring pads, then install the spring. 12) Install the new shock. Place a new shock mount gasket on the shock mount and insert the assembly up into the shock tower. If installing a shock mount reinforcement plate, place the plate over the two shock mount studs, on top of the shock tower, before installing the two nuts. Install the two nuts. Install the trunk trim panel. 13) Install the lower shock mount bolt. Be sure to install the washer on the bolt before installing the bolt. Use the jack to raise the suspension assembly to align the lower shock mount with the hub mounting point, so the bolt can be inserted and threaded. Tighten the bolt. 14) Repeat for the other side. -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

E36 328i s52 cams, m50 manifold, shark injector stage 3+ first drive
Just installed the m50 manifold today, and I installed the shark injector stage 3+ tuning software. Installation of the software is super easy, and it does work. With the combination of the cams, manifold and intake, the car feels smoother and there is hardly any torque loss. And this is just me driving and goofing around on the maiden drive.
