You know you want them. All those mods and all that power... You want them and yet you fear them. Accept it now before it destroys you!

I'm on a trip in California currently and figured that while here, I'd meet up with M5Jed for the first time while here:

My wife and I met with M5Jed and his better half (the owner of an e60 m5 btw's) tonight and broke bread with them at Buca di Bepo in Anaheim.

What cool people, both of whom have a real passion for bmw's. GPS got us close but it wasn't till I saw the "neighborhood car lot", about 7 bimmers all hudled together on the corner of their block along with the full 3 car driveway complete with a front clip removed m5 begging to be put back together, that I knew I was in the right place.

Jed Welcomed us and took us to dinner down the road. Great conversation and food. These guys are great together and hearing Jed talk about his work, its clear that we've not seen the tip of his mental iceberg. This guy, so much untapped potential still left in him. I'm not willing to let any cats out of any bags but I'm anxious to see what he shows us over the next few months and years.

With luck, he'll be up in my hood (Seattle) in 3 weeks where I can return their hospitality and continue to learn more about them. Quick trivia; one of them drives like a "grandma" Hint: he did an s62 swap into his wagon... lol for some its the challenge and pride and for some, the glory and bragging rights. I got no sense of ego or arrogance from him just a desire to try and do things better because he can. If you ever get a chance to say hi at bimmerfest, you'll know what I mean. Once again, I'm honored to meet yet another bimmer bro and share a passion. Thanks Jed.

Last month I visited with M5Jed in California. Then he and his wife came up to Seattle bringing with him an early x-mas present.

I'd planned on putting these on right away but time/$ are going to keep them on the shelve until after New Years. This gives me the opportunity to piss off the wife by having them in the living room which I love.








This is going to be so much fun...

Keep in mind, I'm putting these on a 4.6is engine but the engine is in my wagon so there's going to be a slightly less aggressive turn on the secondaries. I'll have to fabricate an extension to fill the gap from the missing cats up front.

Still, the dyno, I know. It'll happen. I'm as anxious as you are to see the numbers.

Don't waste your time and money to fit them, better you just ship them right to me

They are just a piece of art, therefore placing them into your living room is just fine

I have Supersprint headers in my M5, love them. M5board had a group buy a couple years ago, it was a bit of a mess but in the end it was well worth it.

It would take Jed 6 months to make that many! Wow.
Well, on your m5, I'll assume you felt a difference and definitely heard one. Ever get it on a dyno or one of the other guys on m5board probably did. Was +25-27 hp about average? What about torque?
