As I was coming back home from dinner, I am minding my own business and I got slowed down because of backup at a light. Then I see this bimmer flying by and slowing down fast past me in the other lane. I looked at it and it was debadged but looked like previous version of M3. As I was driving by I see three kids. I had to take a right to get on to highway and as they passed by, the kid in passenger seat shouted "This is is M3!" oookkaayyy... so what?
Granted, I just had the Unichip back in the car and in the process of breaking the new turbo in so I turned down the boost to 13 psi. I was trying to drive as slow as possible. But I couldn't pass up the opportuny to see how my car would run with a new turbo and injectors so I switched my lane and started to follow them. When I got next them, the passenger kid shouted again making sure I heard him. Yeah, I know it's an M3. And then he goes "you wanna go on to the highway?" I said sure. It was on my way home anyway.
Traffic wasn't bad but it wasn't really open either so we only had one chance to go at it before I got off on my exit.
We got on and the traffic opened up a little. I was following and I could see him punching it so I did the same in 3rd. We were about 3 car lengh apart.
Now, this is my first time running on a highway with the new turbo, and it's been only hours since I installed the Unichip with only 13 psi and reset the ECU.
To my surpise, I was reeling him in slowly but surely. At the end of 3rd, I was about a car behind and a few seconds later in 4th, I passed it. I had to let off because of traffic but these kids were tailgating me so close, I couldn't apply brakes so I had to use engine brake to slow down.
So much for breaking my turbo in
Anyway, I am really anxious to what it can do with 17psi and the Unichip with days of driving.
