  5. Forced Induction
    Currently I want more power from my car since it is awd and has so much potential for putting down more power. I did a little bit of research and found out that getting more power while naturally aspirated is just too expensive per hour gained compared to forced induction. My main question is...

    Hello, I have just purchased my first BMW (03 325ci manual) and it won't stay running. It will only start after I leave it sitting for a while, and when it will start, the throttle response is super delayed and very vague. I plugged in my OBD2 scanner and its giving me the following codes...

I went under my car the other day and noticed one of the four bolts holding the cross-member that connects the transmission mounts to the chassis was sheared. I recently did a transmission fluid change and...

    I have a 2004 BMW E46 318i Sedan and the left hand side front window (which in my case is the passenger side) clunks whenever it goes up or down.

    So I have a 2003 325i. It is 07/2003 meaning that the S5D 250G-TAJT transmission comes from factory on it. I am in the works of a manual swap but now have remembered that the transmission I bought was from a 2005 325i which is the S5D 250G-TBDS. Will the 05 transmission work with my 03 325i...

    In general, is there a common mileage at which transfer cases start to have problems and what are the problems? I'm considering replacing my cracked transfer case with 126k miles with a transfer case with 183k miles. If it's worth installing, what components should I replace before installing?

    Hi guys, my e46 320i manual has had a terrible lurch when coming off and on the throttle. It’s worse in low gears but still there a bit in 4th and 5th. I also find that when trying to crawl forward in 1st gear, the car quite violently bounces forward and back when you so much as even touch the...

    Hey guys. So I recently got a used trans from a 2005 330cic 6 speed manual for my 2004 325ci automatic. When I went to install it, the trans fit perfectly but when it got to the driveshaft I noticed that the first half of the drive shaft (which was the only thing I got sent for buyer) didn’t...
