Default Re: My Kleemann K4 : 650 BHP and 900 NM of torque!

after the stage 4 conversion the mods i did were essential...first i have gone up to 19 inch alloys and rears with a deep dish so i have fitted bigger tyres at the back... this has helped a little bit but i still cant have wheel spin upto 160kmh but its putting the power down alot better than before... the car has also gone on a carbon diet to and some aerodynamics which have also made quite a difference on full acceleration the car is feeling more planted and accurate...the bigger tyres also attribute to this feeling but belive me the aero helps alot too... finally and most importantly i have just installed a twin intercooler upgrade with individual reservoirs... this mod was essential due to the weather conditions in mumbai and offers 600 per cent more flow to the intercooler keeping the supercharger running cool even on hard pulls....the mod has eliminated all heat soak as faced before and has drematically improved the performance after the car is hot ......

recently went for a spin in the car, and had been for a few drives before the latest mods.
so the first time, i found the car mental, but now its so composed. much better balance and the car works out to be more suited for the heat here, plus with the monsoons going on, those twin intercoolers are making the car a whole lot faster! lurve it...

No I actually put 285. The way this thing eats tires is alarming. 305 is very expensive and hard to source in Mumbai.

As far as the supercharged m3 is concerned that's a very fast car. But from when I last pulled with it was nearly neck to neck

back then:

M3 - didn't have KW suspension, NO water meth (still haven't used it yet till date), no carbon fiber trunk, no 19 inch GT3 wheels, no larger radiator, it had a larger pulley so car was a bit slower(now I have a smaller pulley so the car is faster)
downside now: Hamann spoiler helped alot (now its gone)

K4 didn't have all the CF bits for the lightweight and twin intercoolers for all that COLD AIR ; ) and didn't have those massive sticky tires on 19 inch wide as hell wheels!

before it went like this: 50 to 250 like m5board, 2 people in each car. M3 and K4 wheel spin... then the M3 gets traction a milli-second before the K4 and gets in front by a tiny, half a car length, then when the M3 has to change gears(manual box, and spins tires) the K4 catches up and is neck and neck, then cause the M3 is lighter and the K4 spins tires when shifting too the M3 gets quarter of a car length and then again when the M3 is changing gears the K4 is neck and neck...

in the end... the moral... both cars..... ARE UBER FAST!

now: we will have to re-try and check.

Sahil - will that be allowed on the forum?

@ insideman - did you buy the blue RS5? if yes, how does it feel as compared to the SC M3? after you got the CSL bootlid - do you plan to stick the BMW, M3 & supercharged logos (badges)? it looked great with the previous bootlid.
