It took a while, but I wanted to be sure to time this correctly - I had to have one of my headlights replaced under warranty so the front bumper needed to be pulled anyways - so I saved some labor costs :) The guys at Von Housen were fantastic!
Unboxed the new heat exchanger - looks great!
and here it is installed... (subtle - yet effective!)
OK - a little promo for the Eurocharged team - Great company to work with so far, and very good stuff! They sent these to me in the mail... they're grey to somewhat match the silver. I know, I know - if I got yellow or red stickers it would add 50HP- but I'm ok for now ;)
It will look a little like this... but my windows have a little tint so would darken the background
So what do you think? Should I put them in the rear quarter windows ?
Looking to get some new plugs for the E55, many have said that a colder plug should be used to reduce EGTs (Exhaust Gas Temperatures) when adding more power - basically one step colder per every 75HP added. NGK LFR7AIX Iridium IX Spark Plugs have been recommended by many on the popular sites. Granted, on the E55 - 16 plugs are needed - YIKES!
These are a great set of plugs! Really smooths out the idle and helps to keep exhaust temps under control!
