EGR Block-off Plate (Evo)

Thanks to focusing on an in-car camera for the Evo’s events, I was able to notice that the CEL was flashing at various points in the upper RPMs during my track days, and even during autox. My tune is programmed such that the CEL will flash if the car knocks. Speaking with the tuner, he…

BSCC 2019-3 07142019

After a near 3 month hiatus, had my 3rd autox of 2019. Given that I am still making tweaks with the Evo, I decided to run it again. Since the last autox, I switched from 10k rear springs to 11k, and flipped the rear bar back to soft. This was to give me the rotation…

New Custom Endlinks (Evo)

Was having some clunking issues with my whiteline endlinks in the front and rear – as much as I tightened up the rears, the endlinks would randomly clunk over small vibrations on the road – really minor and not that loud, but enough to drive me crazy. The fronts only clunk under heavy load in…

UOA 06162019 (Evo)

UOA 06232019 (M3)

SCCA PDX 06082019 – Autobahn South

As luck would have it, another dry forecast turned into precipitation for the second track day. Instead of the downpour like the last event though, we had mild sprinkling that was steady throughout. My biggest concern was when the “switch” would be from driving in the dry to driving in the wet – i.e., I…
