Finally got rid of the factory SE rear muffler, replaced with a Magnaflow 12286 which is surprisingly quiet:



Koyo Hyper V radiator is in, and the pipes are now powdercoated:



Added relief cuts to the flange on the head and coated in something with less bling:



I've been driving this car to work for the last week and everything seems to behave itself.

Plan from now on is less fiddling, more driving.

Cheers

I see you too ran into the tbolt clamp not really working with the efr compressor outlet and having to go with a worm drive clamp.

Yep, I've blown off the ones on the throttle body a couple of times too, I think they'll be getting the same treatment!

I guess I should get this thing tuned. Even running the ultra-conservative MSM tune and on wastegate pressure it's still mental.

Hey mate,

I've been looking at an E92 335i or something along those lines. I'm not going to rush into anything though, taking a break from cars for a while!

Cheers
