    Hello everyone, by now most of you have seen the waves our new N54 GC turbocharger offering is making on the platform, so its time to spill the beans on all the details, such as pricing, availability, fitment, logs, ordering giveaway, etc. We will start with pricing. the pricing schedule will be as outlined below. What is included with the default kit is turbos, inlets, charge pipe. If you already have inlets, you get a discount, if you already have one of our charge pipes (no one does yet, but a ton on order) you can get another discount. Intro Price: Intro Price: $3799 Turbos only without inlets, and CP Intro Price: $3899 Turbos with CP only (you already have either our 2" inlets or another 2" inlet brand, stock frame 1.75-1.80" inlets will NOT work) Intro Price: $3999 Turbos with Inlets, and CP both MSRP once intro price is over: MSRP: $4299 turbos only without inlets, and CP MSRP: $4399 Turbos with CP only MSRP: $4499 Turbos with inlets, and CP We will be doing the intro price for the first 20 sets sold, after that prices go up to MSRP. Availability: They are available on our website right now for Pre-order at the intro price. Sign up for the website, and use discount code VTTGCINTRO our initial order is 50 sets of these from our manufacture, we expect them arrive to us in about 30-60 days. As soon as they come in, the pre-orders ship the next day, after that we will keep stock on hand meaning, any order ships the same of next day ordered, if done so by 3pm PST, if not the next day. Customer Appreciation Giveaway: The way we will be doing our giveaway is a little different, and gives the people who really want a set of these, the ultimate odds to get a free set. Here is how it will work. For the first 20 intro sets, every person who orders is eligible for the giveaway, for each 10 sets ordered we will give one set away, meaning by the time we get to 20 sets sold, you have a 1 in 10 chance of winning! This is a much better contest in our opinion, instead of 1 in 2-300 odds of winning, its 1 in 10, and it keeps people who are just entering the contest to possibly win, and sell the turbos from doing so. This contest if for people who truly want a set of these, and want very high odds of winning. We will make another thread for the contest, but it will be simple, our website tracks date of order, as soon as we hit the first 20, we pull a random number between 1-20 twice, and that number gets a full refund of their purchase price! Simple, and effective. (Yes this giveaway will actually happen) Fitment: Currently we are offering GC kits for N54 335LHD, 135,535,Z4. RHD fitment is coming, we are having the rear housing cast, but it takes a couple months. For the 135/535/Z4 guys, the 335 kit fits your vehicles just fine with one small change of a rear water line, which you can either buy from us, or BMW, we provide the part number. You simply purchase the 335 kit with the CP included, and retrofits the rear turbo to the 335 orientation. We have seen this done, on quite a few cars in the past with zero issues. For RHD vehicles due to the steering shaft, you will need to RHD housing, and charge pipe orientation. Do not fear it is coming! You will finally have a 750WHP RHD option! Some details as taken from our website.: WHP Level supported (with proper fuel, upgrades, and tuning) Stock-750WHP We are proud to introduce the latest in our line of N54 turbocharger products the VTT "GC"turbochargers. This is a new N54 turbocharger from the ground up, using 100% new parts throughout. Some of the ground breaking features are fully new turbocharger from the compressor housing, to the bearing housing, to the turbine housing, we had them engineered to fit in the stock N54 location, but the full flow of a much larger turbo. You will not find any huge TD04HL wheels stuffed into the tiny stock turbine housing. Every part on these turbos were designed around our specific goals for power, flow, and reliability. What we ended up with is a turbocharger that can utilize the stock location while providing enough flow for 750WHP.+ To do this we increase the area inside not only the manifolds, but also the turbine, and compressor housings, we also slightly increase AR ratio on the turbine housing to free up even more flow, while not giving up anything in spool. To put it bluntly, there is no other 750WHP capable turbocharger option on the market single or twins that can match the spool, ease of fitment, power or reliability of our "GC" turbochargers! A few more details: Upgraded thrust: Every set of stage GC turbos comes with a performance upgraded thrust to extend the life of the turbochargers. Billet Compressor wheels: Billet compressor wheels are used to maximize flow per shaft revolution Turbine housing is cast from 22+NB Stainless steel Dyno Graph, and Logs: I am sure most of you have seen the dyno graph, but if not here it is. We made 736WHP/675WTQ on 30 psi, and 9-9.4 degrees of timing. We kept TQ down on purpose to try to not break anymore motors, if we went for big boost down low, 750WTQ is easily on tap. Please note the MHD is reading high on boost due to the 4 bar scaling, our AEM log is true boost in the manifold.

    The spool mode timeout table isn't defined in the current XDF although I've seen it in the old MSD80 DAMOS so I know it's there somewhere. Jake was going to add it next public release. So Dzenno took it from the DAMOS and found it in IJE0S?

    Terry Dzenno fixed all these currently, we can hold spool mode as long as he wants, and its with tables already defined and available. The only issue we had was boost targeting down low, he spent a few hours working on it, and now its 100% gone, you can see in the graph there are not boost issues. This is actually only rev 8, he could have smooth boost out more, but we were both tired, and wanted to call it a day.

    I'm just excited for these new turbos and new ways to control our motors! I wish I had a dyno some days. It's really hard for me to test and implement theories on public roads all of the time. :shhh: This may be getting ahead of the horse, but with these manifolds, could there be options for non stock framed turbos(such as full gtx30rs) in the future?

    I'd be interested to know what problems you were having tuning boost in flash only. Not able to pull enough dutycycle during spool? Or is a load to set point issue? On the hybrid VANOS I switched our maps back to spool mode recently also and its been working well. I regret not spending more time with it a year ago. These basically stock values have been working better than what we ran before on hybrids tested so far. Although it would be nice to extend the spool mode time as with single turbo twin scrolls it does sometimes bounce out before spooled. The blending of spool mode to normal table seems OK to me so those tables probably are not needed. Since we run the same values at all RPMs the spool table axis is fine for now although adding those tables should also be on the to-do list.

    It should be noted that this isn't a stock motor, has upgraded studs, not that IMO it makes a difference at this power level but for complete transparency purposes; it should be noted. Great work Tony, truly impressive numbers, cant wait to see more boost!

    We are confident these will provide the ultimate in N54 stock location turbocharger reliability that rivals singles on the market. At those low boost levels, there is not reason with proper maintenance you could not see stock like longevity, meaning 50K+ miles.

    What would be your guess on longevity for these turbos running mid 20s boost and only a few money runs every once in awhile? While I know it is all relative to how hard you run there are just too many stories on this platform of upgraded turbos lasting less than 10k miles.

    Hey, I was wondering with all this knowledge in N54 land now , and all these shiny upgrades available , who or what is concidered a good and reliable log tuner, because the Ecu tuners here in Belgium don't know sh*t about the N54 platform. right now i am running a OTS map from MHD. Mods are the usual : downpipes , FMIC, Charge pipe with tial BOV, and bigger inlets. Last mod i am concidereing somewhere near summer is Meth and JB4. (other priorities atm) So i am looking for a good personal tune. This is my last log with the MHD OTS Stage 2 map . http://datazap.me/u/odanbe/log-1455304262?log=0&data=4-21&solo=1&mark=25 thank you :)

    Jake, you are correct, you did not say that, this is what you said " Hey, There's no problems w/ the current tables in IJE0S, however a few new tables do need to be defined to be able to boost target down low. " But that is not the case, nothing needs to be defined or added to address the boost targeting issues, everything is already defined, and available if you know where to look, and what to change. Why you are battling me over this I am not sure. You confuse me, sometimes you act like everyone is on the same team, other times, its Jake Y and everyone else under him.

    You're really not understanding what I am trying to say here. Once again, quoted from above: "If he was able to get it working using the existing tables, well done." Also, I didn't mean post screenshots of his work, simply curious of the tables added (names from the TunerPro table list window). Sorry for trying to save you some time!

    Jake, not a single new "boost target relationship" table was needed, the changes he mad could be made in Cobb if you wanted to make them. As for posting screenshots of his work, wasn't you 3 days ago, who said maps are locked because people steal work, he will share what he did I am sure once he does it. Honestly dude, why are you in here with your negative attitude, it sounds like you are butthurt he fixed something I was told was unfixable with out major changes to tables, and his vanos works better than yours without turning off spool mode, and just dumping everything into the main tables, which effects drivebility. Honestly if you want to argue with someone about what he did, email him. This isn't a tuning thread, it's a results thread, if you want to continue to puff out your chest, and downplay what he did, go ahead, but it won't be in here.

    I never once said it was a logic issue. Not once. I did say, however, it would need to be addressed through load to boost relationship tables, of which I have now defined most of them, including the ability to target an exact boost number. If he was able to get it working using the existing tables, well done. As for new VANOS tables, I'm sure you probably needed to up the max time per starting RPM, at a minimum. Post up a screenshot of the new tables in TunerPro, and I'll let you know the hours you could have saved in double-work with a quick email before hand :) Also, this is not publicly released yet because these groups of tables aren't 100% done yet, and I don't piece-meal release things.

    You, and Martial both said the boost targeting issue in IJ was a logic issue with that firmware DME, it wasn't. Also if you have this work done, why haven't you released it. If you have fixed the IJ boost tarting gremlins, then it should be easy for you to post a log with it. Not saying you don't, but if you do, why are you holding on to it? What he did was a lot more than define vanos tables. That was the first thing he did, before we even ran one time. The rest of the time was spent on boost targeting, and dialing the tune in.

    Thank you sir, yes he defined some new tables, and fixed a very real boost targeting issue that meant you couldn't keep the wgdc from dropping open very early, you could try to extend it with voltage scaling, and load request tricks, but it wasn't the right way to do it, and it didn't fix it. It was much more than adding a few axis as far as what needed to be done to get to spool like it does, without disabling spool mode, and hold boost properly. He can only post once a day, I am sure he will explain once he is able to. Also Jake, what do you mean double work? Just curious.

    I'm guessing just the missing VANOS axis so they could tune spool mode further out in the rpm band.
