Tell us a little about you. What cars you are interested, where you are from and why you are interested in learning to tune.

Hey,

I'm an IT guy from Hungary who is very keen on fast cars and race technology. I started working on my own cars mostly 4 cylinder old carburated stuff from the eastern block since I was 18, then I picked up welding as a hobby. Couple of years back I got my first 6cylinder e46 bmw with an M54B30, then I somehow got involved in a drift car build that had the same engine and a big HX40 turbo and a hungarian custom ECU called VEMS, I had the opportunity to witness and help out in the whole wiring and tuning of that car. I was also doing a lot of work on the turbo exhaust manifold and other occasional stuff, the tuning was done by a specialist who is a big name here. The result: 409bhp and 502Nm on the crank from and old used stock engine block. I read a a lot of EFI tuning and mechanical stuff, but lately got the time and will power to buy the practical engine building course and I would like to put it to good use if I build my turbo M54 in the (let's hope not so far) future. I keep my daily's looks stock, but occasionally I do performance upgrades here and there, but nothing fancy. I put up some pics from the drift car which I was involved with, and my e46 touring.

Cheers,

Lovely car! Welcome to the forum. I bet working within the constraints of the E46 engine bay is a real challenge. Nice spaghetti work :-).

Thanks, the red car was an e36, but some tinkering was involved placing the big snail under the hood :)

Welcome to HPA, that is some impressive fab work and numbers.

Looks good
