No sound on my comp at work, so I can't watch the vid :(

On flat shifts you'll definitely spit some fire. My car used to catch the rear end on fire on high RPM lifts.

Brady, the only person running a blow-through setup on an e46 nonm is NickG. I believe he uses a Ford maf that's been calibrated appropriately.
I didn't know if Anthony could cut into the piping past the BOV and put the MAF in there. Just a thought.
You can't blow through the OEM maf. It isn't designed to handle any sort of oil, plus you'd need a different tune. When you blow through the maf, it would effectively have to measure pressurized air, where as the draw through setup does not.
Question for David, BMWKnight and JoshZHP. When the car is running does your mechanical tensioner moves around? Mines move alittle not sure this is acceptable...

Mine has a little play, but not enough to cause any strange noises.
