BMW S55 Carbon Fiber Intake & Charge Pipes Nov 24, 2021

If you consider yourself a BMW enthusiast then you understand the innate importance of these two things: intake noise and carbon fiber. Turner's S55 intake gives you both of those things while maintaining a great fit and finish that integrates seamlessly with OEM inlet ducting and stock mounting locations. While engineering this intake, Turner meticulously collected data to ensure MAF scaling matched factory intake exactly in order to maintain correct AFRs. The 2x2 twill weave carbon fiber inlet tubes are available in either matte or gloss finishes. The S55 OE charge pipe is prone to failure; after constant heat cycling, the factory plastic becomes very brittle, leading to cracks and boost leaks, and ultimately entire part failures. The OE charge pipe has also been proven to break once under increased boost pressure. Replace the weak OE charge pipe with the Turner Motorsport S55 Charge pipe for increased air flow, and increased throttle response. You can also safely turn up the boost on your S55 once this kit is installed, and not worry about the problematic factory piece.

Up To 20% Off Fluid Extractors Nov 9, 2021

If you live in an apartment or you can't get your car up on ramps or stands but want to change your oil, then this is exactly what you need. This tool enables you to drain from the dipstick tube and refill like normal, without getting under the car or fighting with drain plugs. Not only is it convenient it's also efficient: most cars leave oil in the pan when being drained from the plug—sometimes up to a half quart. The extractor, however, can reach this remaining broken down fluid to make room for even more uncontaminated lubricant. Extract the extra work from the job.

Use of this kit requires a medium sized air compressor (suggested minimum 20-30 gallon tank, 4.0 CFM @ 90psi), common "shop vac" and full hearing and eye protection. We recommend the use of a remote starter switch such as part # CTA3012.

Audi C7 S6/S7 Exact-Fit Stainless Steel Brake Line Set Nov 7, 2021

Even when new, factory style fabric mesh lined rubber hoses are prone to expansion under the pressure of hard braking, whether it be highway panic stops or threshold braking at the track. This expansion is even more prominent in aged and weathered rubber hoses. ECS Tuning's Exact-Fit lines are engineered and assembled with braided stainless steel mesh and offer superior expansion resistance and reinforcement. The resistance to expansion creates a firmer pedal, and a more direct pedal feel. The signature red polymer coating provides additional protection from the elements and abrasion common with the constant movement of suspension and braking systems.

Turner G80/G82 M3 Skid Plate - Milled Finish & Black Nov 7, 2021

The G80/G82 BMW models are simply amazing to drive; don't let road debris keep you from enjoying the moment. These cars have so much packed under the hood to get you this experience it causes the oil cooler to be placed face-down to the road. This makes the cooler an easy target for impact, which can prove catastrophic as the stock belly pan is designed from a flexible plastic material. We've heard stories of small branches, scrap pieces that fell from trucks to large ice chunks impact the cooler immediately draining the car of its oil. If you don't catch this right away this could cause serious internal engine damage due to oil starvation.

New ECS Crank Seal Protection N52/N54/N55/S55 Sep 24, 2021

Who doesn't like insurance against engine failure? N52/N54/N55/S55 BMW owners commonly experience a shredded serpentine belt, which can get sucked in through the crank seal on the front of the engine. Oil and coolant leaks are often the culprit, causing the serpentine belt to slip past the crank pulley, getting sucked in behind the harmonic balancer, moving its way past the crank seal, and ultimately ending up in the oil pan. Once belt fragments are in the pan, tiny pieces can block the oil pickup, get caught in the timing chain, or end up in your valve cover. Any and all of these scenarios cause expensive damage at best and engine failure at worst. Our engineers designed a cost-effective and reliable crank seal protection plate for N52/N54/N55/S55 BMW engines that protects the front crank seal from a shredded serpentine belt getting sucked into the engine. We recommend these as inexpensive insurance for all N52, N54, N55 and S55 owners.

However, unlike ultra-light aluminum flywheels it still offers a smooth idle, quiet operation with minimal increase to NVH, and smooth OE-like engagement for easy daily driver duty.

The OE charge pipe has also been proven to break once under increased boost pressure.

You can also safely turn up the boost on your B58 once this kit is installed, and not worry about the problematic factory piece.

Performance Throttle Body Upgrade - B8 S4/S5 3.0T Sep 22, 2021

The stock throttle body is smaller than the supercharger inlet creating a massive restriction and directly responsible for power loss. ECS Tuning's in-house designed and engineered Performance Throttle Body Upgrade will do the trick. Designed with a smooth flow path in mind, we start off with a wire reinforced silicone inlet that resists collapse and is stepped in the internal diameter to create a smooth transition to the throttle body. We then went with a high quality OEM Mopar 80mm throttle body that is 10mm larger and has 30% more cross sectional area than OE. The final step is the cast aluminum adapter housing with port matched internal diameters to provide the smoothest flow path possible. On our test car equipped with IE dual pulley 93 octane 80mm throttle body tune, ECS exhaust (valves open, stock catalytic converters), ECS supercharger heat exchanger, ECS Kohlfaser Luft Technik Intake, ECS supercharger and crank pulley, we saw 415 HP and 385 TQ at the WHEELS. See below for full specs and detailed installation guide!

Chris's BMW E30 325is Build List Sep 14, 2021

When I was 17, I went to look at a 1984 318i with my father. I didn’t know how to drive stick at the time, so he test drove it on my behalf, and loved it. Despite making barely 100hp decades prior, he enjoyed the driving engagement, and how solid and well-built it felt. Since then, my family has owned numerous E30s, including my current daily 325is. I bought this in 2018 as a project with 320k miles; at that time the hood wouldn’t even open. Many hours were spent refreshing and enhancing the driving enjoyment. Now she soldiers on with 357k miles, and no signs of stopping.
