Got the Sticker - Now What?


Recommended Posts

Sorry for the noob question but I just can't figure this out.

The other day I installed the +5 HP sticker. Immediately after, I checked my points, re-did the timing and let the motor warm up. Drove the car out of the driveway and gave it a spin around the block.

Maybe 5 HP is not enough to feel the difference, but I couldn’t tell if I had the sticker or not!

Did I install it correctly? Did I miss-read the directions? Do I need to rewire anything additional - directions that came with the sticker were pretty straight forward - peel and stick - but I'm pretty sure the manufacturer is hiding some key step that was probably lost in translation…who knows where they make this stuff.

Any and all advise would be greatly appreciated.

I'm just stumped!

; -)

Your directional orientation is amiss, in a real shambles, didnt u know the 5 hp sticker goes on fore or aft orientation, perpindicular installation will only increase understeer and for proof check our a Bugatti Veryon, you will never see a 5 hp sticker mounted longitudily. Cool story dude and you car is Clean as F#ck

That's an under-the-hood sticker. It has to be in close proximity to the intake or you get lag. With it located way in the back like that, it probably takes 5-8 seconds at WOT before the boost reaches the cylinder head. By then you've shifted gears and you have to start the clock all over again.

Excellent product. Faulty installation.

The car has done at least one lap on the Nordschleife?

The rule is: No lap, KEIN AUFKLEBER. Also, most just run the Nordschleife, and in that case the Südschleife must be cut off the sticker.

If no lap, the disrespect of the rule probably eliminates the effect of the +5.

rotate sticker slowly counterclockwise as you idle the engine at 1500 rpms. When your balls line up, you will obtain total consciousness, and at least an additional 7 hp

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
