    If my memory wasn't so bad I'd be able to tell you! I only fitted my arb a year ago lol. I definitely dropped the backbox so maybe I lowered the rear of the heat shield too. I definitely didn't remove the whole thing though!

    No car should have a dyno mode! That's rediculous! Imagine the designers saying "this car needs a dyno mode" lol

    arb is easy. take backbox off the rear hangers so its resting on something (still kinda supported by middle hanger), 4 bolts hold the shield on, and with drop links undone the arb pulls right out. took me 40mins max

    I got the fekker out in the end!

    [​IMG]

    I was trying to remove the rubbers from the backbox hangers, then it dawned on me I could just unbolt the whole mount! Anyways, got the replacement in, bolted one side up, the otherside isn't playing ball. I can't line the bloody holes up for the ARB bushes on the passenger side, low light, so given up for the day....

    Cheeky *******s! lol

    It runs in reduced power mode, and limits out at 6200 rpm. Unbelieveable. Bloody BMW.

    Anyway, it made between 285 and 300 BHP at 6240 ish before hitting the software limiter.

    Normally revs to 8100...

    So should be reasonable.

    Wait till I get the dyno mode sorted (need sfotware for it which is ordered) and then we should have somewhere handy to the full 338 lol.

    Hopefully.

    True true.

    Mine would be beat; I'll agree.

    Might have to start making the new one quicker, but being a facelift I just don't like it :(
