    I have purchased this car from John (developer) after the sad events that had happened. As a lot of you guys know John and how much care and love he had for the car. We both decided that this would be a good opportunity to do something positive.

    Overall Goals

    900 bhp - 1000 bhp
    Vmax event 200mph +
    Drag strip 10 to 10.5 seconds

    I will keep you guys updated on all of the modifications that will be done when they arrive.

    KW Springs 20-35mm front
    AMS Cooling Kit
    UPD Filter
    UPD Light Weight Pulley Kit
    Bigger 900+ TTE Turbos
    Weistec True Down Pipes
    Capristo exhaust rear boxes
    Custom 3" Mid system
    Meth
    Gearbox Clutch Upgrade
    TCU Tune

    Engine for now will be stock unless we occurs problems!

    The fastest / Powerful E63 in the UK was owned by Dave and is now brought by Alps running 860bhp with Weistec Turbos Gearbox build Weistec Exhaust etc... which was done at MSL Performance . We hope to run both cars at Vmax 2018 March and hit the magic 200mph in the E63.

    The reason why I am pushing this car to the limits ?? Is that in the last Vmax200 a friend of mine hit 207mph in his BMW M5 2014 against my C63 Black Series also hit 207mph.

    From what I can tell he is running more power due to weight and the aero dynamics of his car then the C63.
    I think its quite possible to run the same or faster speeds from the E63 and a bit of healthy competition always helps.

    I will be testing new products and will keep you guys updated thanks Acid

    It's certainly got the traction, just needs a solid map. :D

    KW Springs for the Front and lowering Links on the rear.
    I have fitted Many H&R Springs for customers with no issues and good results. The cost of H&R are around £200 and the KW are around £600 - £700 !!
    The main difference between both that the KW can be adjusted to 35mm but the H&R spring is 20mm. Now this is the first time I'm using this kit on this car so I'm gonna see if the extra money is worth it or a waste. I have also looked at the after market Toe and chamber adjustments but will wait to see how the suspension is before I take the plunge.
    Once Fitting Starts will post some more pictures. Acid

    I did say to you "I'm not being the Guinea Pig on these like I was on the M157" :D

    Tempting mind...

    Give me a ring when you have a few minutes please Acid, this needs discussing...

    You know Dave, statements have to be credible if you want people to buy into them... Acid will dangle that grand of horsepower and you’ll be down there like a tramp on chips, admit it :D :D

    Right Today We have a few more parts

    [​IMG]

    AMS Turbo Cooler system and Auxiliary Heat Exchanger

    https://www.amsperformance.com/prod...5l-v8-biturbo-amg/e63/alpha-e63-cooling.html/

    Never tried this cooling system so again wanted to see what its gonna be like. Its not the cheapest of items but with extra cooling it should make a good difference in keep the IATs Low.
    The Auxiliary Heat exchanger I had in stock as it the same one used in the A45. The E63s comes with 2 Auxiliary heat exchangers but I will only change 1 as they are £700 each to buy, not sure that they will make a lot of difference with the Primary Bigger Heat exchanger and with the extra tank that will be fitted under the wing.

    Weistec True Turbo Down Pipes - We have fitted lots of Downpipes but Weistec have the best quality and plus I had a set in stock. Other Companies like IPE, CKS Fi, Supersprint do Turbo back Down Pipes for a lot for less money.

    Idea is to fit the Down + Mid pipes to a custom 3" system straight through with capristo valved back boxes just incase it sounds anti social !!

    Weistec Transmission Pan

    Better cooling, hold more fluid and can add additional Cooler

    I Hope to start some Work Monday and will post some more pics Acid

    Look forward to thoughts on the Springs, I love H&R products and used to sell them. The height adjustable aspect of the KW seems a good idea
