What?!?! After all those mods and cleaning and work, you don't actually intend to drive it, do you?
CSL Splitter and SMG expansion tank
Hidden air ducting and air filter
CSL Un-Filtered Housing
The one time I got to drive a CSL, I remembered how SMG requires a bit of attention if you want it to work right...
CSL Snorkel Intake
CSL Center Console
CSL Cams and Followers
Wow that is sweet. Would love to go there someday.
What fun! Thanks for sharing!
CSL Main Filtered Housing
I did want to share one image that proves the fiancée / soon to be wife at this point is allowed to drive the M3. Granted she does not like that much because it has the SMG system. She preferred to drive the 1M as it is a proper manual car. Images was taken and a social event in August at a parking garage in Down town Sacramento.
It is not December 2012 and I loaded all the parts into the M3 and the fiancé’s Subaru. This is the last image of the car in its current configuration all be as it is transformed into a US Spec CSL car.
2013 The Transformation Begins
From December 2012 until February 2013, the car was in surgery. The shop I took the car to was kind enough to take images of some of the work as they did it. I need to give a major kudos to the shop for doing the work and doing an AMAZING job.

They made it all come together and highly recommend you spend the money to have them do any CSL work you need. Sorry for the death by images but this is my journal after all.
Install of the CSL Intake
Were you going to get in touch with my directly on this project?
Sent you a PM or you can email me again. I sent you document and never heard back. Figured you were not interested.
A Roundel article about this US CSL built would be great!!
Satch has all the info and images now. Up to him if I get in or not.
