    Can an adapter plate not be made to mount a GM AT on an N54? My buddy has a TH400 GM trans on his 2010 Kenne Bell 5.0. It hauls ass.

    Hi everyone, The last 24 hours has been crazy, but the results speak for themself. Yes, you read correctly, my car just made 607awhp/618AWTQ. Background: Over the last year or so, I have been fortunate enough to dedicate some much needed wrench time to my e92 n54 AT 335XI. Back in Nov, I was finally able to get my car to the track, and cut the XI record, running an 11.363 1/4 mile. My mods at the time were: FBO, e40 fuel, RB Turbos and some outstanding flash tuning my BQ and WedgePerformance. At the time, Rob@RB, BQ/wedge, and myself were thrilled with the results, but in all honesty I wanted to hit 10s. Since November, I was searching for more ways to get more EFFICIENT power. I happened to stumble across a post in a 335 facebook group, someone had posted a dyno graph showing standard RB turbos making over 600whp, what made it even more astounding was the power was all the way to redline. After doing some research, and poking around some other boards, I found a few threads talking about the results. Honestly, I was shocked with the comments from board members and a few vendors. I saw words and phrases that essentially were calling the dyno and owner a fraud, fake, "we tried that already it didn't net much" and standard RBs can't make that power. Nevertheless, I was still curious, so I found Brian May's # and left him a voicemail. He gave me a call back about a day later, most of the stuff he was going over, honestly was way too advanced for me to fully understand, but after we spoke, I did some math on my own and it made sense. I had stayed in contact with Brian over the next few months, and we finally nailed down a shipping date to get me the 1st set of inlets. In anticipation for the new inlets, I figured my RB turbos, although nothing wrong with them, could use a "refresh." I was hearing exceptional feedback on Robs VSR balancing, and after speaking with a few board members who were using some of his billet wheel options, I contacted Rob about giving my RBs a refresh. I let Rob know I was planning on running Brian's inlets, and was very anxious to see what a fresh, updated (15T billet wheel, Vsr balanced, clipped, thrust upgrsded) RB could do. Fast forward to last weekend- Both Brian, and Rob delivered ahead of schedule and I was able to get the entire new setup installed in about 20 hours over the weekend, and the rest is pretty much history. Every aspect of Brian's kit fit perfectly, and went in without a hitch, and the turbos that Rob sent were equally beautiful in their own right. I ran the car around town a bit using the same map from BQ/Wedge at the track, and right away I noticed 2 things- the sound coming from the engine bay was intoxicating and the car pulled like an absolute freight train. Extremely anxious to see exactly how much more power we were making, I hit the dyno last night, and well the results are CRAZY. The Green Run- RB turbos, stock inlets (map I ran at track to cut 11.363), e60 fuel The Blue Run- New RB turbos, TFT inlets, SAME MAP as Green run LOL, e60 fuel The Red Run- New RB turbos, TFT inlets, Prelimiary revision by BQ/Wedge, about e60 fuel Sorry guys for the novel, but I wanted to give everyone as much of the story as I could. I want to give a huge thank you to Brian May@Trueform Technologies, Rob@RB Turbo and last and certainly not least Ken and D@ BQ Tuning by WedgePerformance for throwing that preliminary map together for me last night. I will say there is PLENTY of room left in my setup, I don't even think we exceeded 50% wgdc to hit 607 AWHP, and I've got my eyes set on a 10 second 1/4 pass in the near future. Thanks again team

    The new Vargas Intakes. Its all over the main page of the N54 forum. They seem to making a nice difference particularly up top allowing the turbos to not fall off so hard after 6k rpm. More data needs to seen on stocks or stg 1 for exact results though. If your turbos are rattling bad your going to have to replace them eventually. I think you should get the Vargas intakes and stg1 turbo. They have a new wastegate design that eliminates wastegate rattle once and for all. Plus you'll see a nice power bump and much quicker spooling compared to your worn stockers. I agree stg2 isn't worth it unless you can get more octane. $ per horsepower vs stg1 doesn't make any sense.

    Your fitting coming off PCV, does it block off the PCV like the other fitting in this thread? Or does it not need to since you blocked off head ports? Even if I get these fittings I will still block off head ports. I am guessing if I use the fittings in this thread I will need -10 AN (vent hose) and -8AN (fitting off PCV cap) and then will use -12AN (hose back to intake). wpild tap the top 2 fittings -10AN & -12AN and middle fitting -8AN. all 1/2" NPT.

    I said it in the other thread too, but i bet the normal stage 1s of yours could make some nice power coupled with the intakes. Would be a nice replacement without going crazy. I think I may be interested in either stage 1 or 2 , going to email you.
