    It is also a 335, but makes the V8 M3 look like donkey with its power:biggrin:. It has the Schnitzer front lip, and I recently put 19 inch rims to keep the car more steady on the ground. Since I remapped the chip, the car has too much of power. Im actually thinking about turning it down a bit. What happened to your 335? Dont tell me Turbos? My neighbours is giving him hassles as well.

    in fact the new 335 Motor only has one turbo now - it's a variable turbo

    eish gents this is a skimmer show off thread not who has the bigger engine.

    BTW from what i have heard from a tuner the 335 motors are not as reliable as the motors of old. well its to be expected as its their 1st petrol turbo after 25/30 years so these probs are to expected expect the newer models to be better

    Do you know how much worse my day is now that you have told me this??? do you know how much it costs to fix?? 6 injectors 3 coils was R24K not that I had to pay but still do you know how much marine stuff one can buy?? Oh and to get back on topic the skimmer is using a 335 motor pump if it were a scooby pump it would be fart like bubbles :)
