Thanks, Ricky!

She hasn't even been detailed yet! She's getting a spa treatment on April 6 (already booked ) and then she'll be on the transporter shortly thereafter. I can't wait!

As an aside, I wanted to thank you for being supportive and kind in my FS thread and in responding to my PMs. You've been an absolute star.

I'm looking forward to getting the remainder of my project off the ground

Been a pleasure seeing your teaser pics along the way and the trials and tribulations of having to almost lose your baby! Xoutpost is the best forum on the net with wonderful people and enthusiasts here to help each other and although we are all nutty in our own ways (what other people put the kind of money we do into 10 year old trucks lol!) it's the comraderie that we love these SAV's that matters. Only on Xoutpost have I found guys willing to meet me a half hour away to clear a suspension code on a sunday, or another friendly member in South Dakota who sent me a tool he made for axle pulling so I could try it out on my wheel bearing repair and let him know how it works, only on these boards!

Thanks for the kind words, Green. I, too, am looking forward to seeing it done. It will not by any means happen over night but I'm not complaining!

PS.. Still in the break-in period, still getting faster..!! Can't wait till the installation of the water/meth kit.
Explain, why you need a break-in, if nothing were done to the engine mechanically?

What is "track tuned" in case of M54 engine in the X5?

What's your boost? With stock RMS-kit boost on stock internals you'll never get nearly to 300 AWHP from M54.

For that kind of power you'll need at least 14-15 psi, agressive cams, forged pistons and reduced compression. Remapping will einther add about 5-10% over your SC baseline or, which is much better will get you a harmonical HP and torque curves for more efficient operation.

Judging from what you said before - there's no technical understanding at all, just some phrases how great the RMS kit is (you repeat it in every posting) and some very fairy tale numbers and statements, without any technical details, which are expected from you, especially after your statement about "15 years experience with performance cars".

I'm not offensive, just waiting for more information.

Just how I like'em. I had a 1988 Honda Civic hatchback same silver as the X, didn't even have a passenger side mirror. However, it ripped a 12.9 on the 1/4. On the out side, although super clean, it completely presented itself as a 90hp gas efficient 13 - 14 year old car. For some strange reason I get the same feeling from this X5 ironically.
