Thread: The Random E46/ZHP Question Thread

  1. #6961
    I know the Delphie coils are what the dealership sold me last time, I think they are the updated version.

    Also.... free batteries are the best. They went ahead and warrantied the Bosh 94R I had

    Thanks for the link, I had no idea Bosch was out of favor.
    So, just to clarify, is it saying to avoid Bosch CPs and go with genuine, eldor or Delphi? (Or bremi, which I’ve never heard of)

    When bleeding the system, and the car starts to overheat, so I turned it off and waiting for it to cool (fan to speed it up).

    What is the purpose of waiting for it to FULLY cool down? What is happening?

    You let it cool so that:

    A) You don't get sprayed in the face with boiling hot coolant when you top it off

    B) The steam (water vapor) created by raising the coolant above boiling gets a chance to escape out of the system.

    I guess another question is: what’s fully cooled down? When the system is no longer pressurized? Or when everything’s cool to the touch? Or...?

    I would say when the system is no longer under pressure. Temperature wise, I really can't say. I guess maybe warm to the touch?

    Lol well I don’t expect someone who doesn’t have the money to spend, to sign up for the group buy? That’d be a little backwards and counter productive anyway lol

    For the people who are interested, This will at least generate some kind of conversation on where kits like VF stand in our community and how many people want the bump in HP lol I’m excited to see what kind of discounts they’d even be willing to give. A lot of these kits are made to order so chances are slim on a deep discount from my POV anyway lol

    Yeah I doubt there would be much. They tried to charge me nearly the full price of the kit when they wanted to use my car for their CARB testing. Maybe you'll get more if you get Carbonzhp to help you out with some discount
