    Cblock's New R53

    I think this forum is pretty quiet but what the hell, just picked up an 06 R53 and thought I'd post it up. I have a build thread started over at NAM.

    Checkmate package, chrono, & LSD for the big options. 75k miles

    I've been cleaning it up and tinkering with it. Catching it up on maintenance and I'll do a supercharger pulley and possibly injectors and a tune.

    You can check it out here...https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...checkmate.html

    Any updates on the m3?

    Looks like you have done allot to it already! Looking good though. Glad it's the Supercharged one, I didn't know if 06 was still DC or turbo. Don't really know allot about the Minis

    Not a whole lot, some though. I got a Dinan strut brace for it to carry the theme with the Dinan muffler. Got a nice CD43 put in. Been enjoying it mostly. Jealous of many people getting to stay home during this time and would love to have some more time to put into the car, but hopefully soon! Still need to break down and start a thread, hopefully soon on that as well

    Good to hear! Yeah, my work hasn't slowed down one bit lol That's a good thing though I suppose. I try not to get jealous of my wife hanging out at home collecting unemployment.
