    Correct. The XI rack itself is different (you cannot swap with RWD), the mounting location and holes on the rack housing itself are different, the entire subframe is different, etc. Not to mention having axles and a diff up there. Have not done the pump yet but I have done front sway bar and dropped the subframe to do DP's and some other stuff couple of times. Each time I am under there I look at the pump and wonder how am I going to do that when the time comes? I don't see how without dropping the subframe.

    That seems logical though in my experience on the fuel side, what seems logical is often unrelated to the actual issue. i've had some real crap luck getting fuel squared way, though at this point finally i'm in the clear. This is an asinine question but have you turned the motor over yet? It's your car so obviously I can't sit here and tell you to throw caution to the wind and turn it on...But at a certain point IMO i'd be inclined to get the tires to the pavement and see how it runs/idles. Only thing which would worry me is if the PI is somehow injecting on idle, though there doesn't appear to be any evidence of that? Sorry I can't be more helpful dude, LMK if there's anything else you'd like pictures/videos of on my car.

    I agree completely, except source inside Turner told me Will is still going to be heavily involved in the business.

    Our local BMW dealer prices are lower than ECS, and they deliver twice a day. Honestly the only reason to go ECS is for the aftermarket stuff. Their BMW OEM prices are ok at best.

    So first it was a "machining error", now its a problem with billet wheels. Well he doesn't machine anything to do with oil control, and any wheel issue will show itself the second you put them on the balancer. So which is it? A machining error, or bad compressor wheels? Also there are people in that thread on their 3rd set of turbos, they send them back, and they fail again. It sounds like Rob honestly is not sure why they are failing, which is the scariest of the options. It would be nice, if he actually came clean as to what is going on. Its not a machining error he doesn't perform, and the odds of it being bad wheels, when he has posted so much about his amazing balancing, seem slim. Either way, what is going on does not seem to be isolated to a few customers.

    Balls...I wonder if the aftermarket fpr is not restricting the fuel at all allowing it to all go back to the tank and it's buzzing because it's constantly trying to bypass the solenoid to pressurize the injectors for start up...

    ECS is huge in the euro automotive parts business. Almost all of the shops I have connections to have an account with ecs and use them regularly for parts supply. Their pricing is spot on. Not only that, when it comes to bmw, they allow you to see the manufacturers of the parts before bmw rebrands them, and charges more. (i.e. bosch makes the sparkplugs which you can buy for cheaper than bmw rebranded bosch plugs, behr makes the radiator which you can buy cheaper than a bmw rebranded radiator, peirberg makes the boost solenoids, which you can buy for cheaper than bmw rebranded solenoids, ect)

    Since Rob hasn't chimed in here yet. Here is his explanation from that thread. "All, This thread was started by another RB customer who purchased a couple years ago. Glad he is content with the new install. Another has chimed in with their experience that has nothing to do with our several year old product failing and everything to do with our product ingesting some foreign objects after installing some inlets (something we have seen on the rise as the inlet craze has began). As for the rest of you subjected to the unrelated semi-recent recall, yes, you have found one another. We have disclosed everything with you all already, regarding a limited number of units and what is now a quarantined issue. Quarantines took place with all shipments made mid-late April, and apply ONLY to the LHD 335 BILLET Wheel product. This means if your LHD 335 Billet RB products have shipped POST mid/late April, they are not a potential for this issue. If they were shipped PRIOR, they are at potential for the issue and you should have been notified. Also to point out we have found no other models (or cast wheel products) affected by said manufacturing error, meaning that no other apply to this issue. This should come as no surprise to any of you, as you were all notified the second we were able to identify there was an issue back in April, if anyone was not we do apologize but we do know we tried our best. From that point we took back in approximately 10 sets of UNINSTALLED turbos and made the corrections and immediately shipped back out. Less than 10 sets made it to install (unfortunately a couple earlier shipments twice), and we have worked with all of your concerns as best as possible. We apologize for anyone having an issue. This is something we want just as much as we want a a bullet in the head, and shows we are human and certainly are not infallible. The best thing we can do is stand behind our product, as we state that we will on our website. This is not a new disclaimer it has been there since 2010, and is very common in the industry to PROTECT ourselves from such events, but to still point out that we WILL stand behind our products. Even yet in many cases do go above and beyond, although almost regardless it is felt to be unjust we believe it is handled on par (or better) than industry standards. Trust has been in lost in our company and we realize that, and we do not expect it to be earned back overnight. We may have lost customers for life and also understand that too. Ultimately we have to keep moving forward and appreciate those loyal customers who believe in us and understand that issues can and do happen. If anyone has any questions they feel they need answered (that they have not gotten already in prior correspondences) they can shoot us an email. Thanks, Rob "

    Very smart move on the part of Will Turner. He gets to ease out of the grind of running the company, gets to focus on what he loves which is racing, and gets a nice chunk of change at the same time. Reminds me of when Ken sold DC to Quicksilver. Before then he was just the nameless guy behind the scenes (making a ton of money), it allowed him to focus on the things he loves, IE Rally Racing, Gymkhana, etc. I still have packing slips of DC product sent to me with Ken Block as the packer, and sender. Dude has come a long way.

    Yea, Turner, while extremely successful, has been family owned and operated up until now. ECS is an absolute monster of a reselling business for many European brands. Honestly it sounds like it will be business as usual and Turner will be able to dip into the big pockets of ECS for continued racing development and hopefully to use ECS's supplier relationships to bring their costs down. Conversely, looks like ECS wanted to capitalize on the Turner name and racing business. Looks like a great relationship on paper, but I've seen other great relationships on paper turn out to be horrible implosive nightmares, so time will tell.

    Tried that, it was worse than before, had to fire the guy. Terry's intent was clear. MMP is a marine industrial engineer, hence he must be qualified to do what he is doing. His results show otherwise, just stating the obvious. My forumside manner wont be changing anytime soon. I rather like telling it how it is, and pissing off the people who want to be coddled.

    where did T say that it qualifies MMP as turbo builders? It was just an answer to the "he is a used car salesman" comment made earlier. Tony you build great products (according to your customers) but really suck at behaving on forums, just hire someone calm and relaxed to handle things :)

    Terry, I enjoy your posts, they are usually factual, and well thought out. This one I am having a hard time grasping. So because he happens to be an Engineer for heavy industrial marine applications by day. This qualifies him to become a turbocharger expert, and builder by night? So would the reverse be true? Since I am a turbo expert, and builder by day, I am qualified to become a heavy industrial marine engineer by night. Should I start designing, and selling these parts out of my garage, and expect paying customers to be ok with that. You said, if this were the stock market, you would put your money in MMP. In hindsight, doesn't look like that would be a smart investment.

    Whats up man. If you have any questions you find a hard time getting answered, just drop me an email tony@vargasturbo.com. I have a multitude of 2+ dyno graphs I could send you, and answer any questions about them. Honestly for the N54 these are the best option at the moment for people looking for between 550-700WHP.

    And my buddy Donny for giving him his car, and me for beating him in a few races and pissing him off and making him try to beat me. Honestly Donny losing to my car was the reason this platform makes over 600whp with hybrids. Its outrageous but literally may be true.

    I think the issue is for 5k you can ditch your car and buy a 355i and have money left over for mods etc and it will be significantly faster than you will ever get the 328 to be(unless you like pissing money away). The N54 platform is also much more mature as far as aftermarket development. It seems like a better platform to start with. But feel free to push your engine how you see fit.

    That's nice. I hope your coach doesn't literally throw the superbowl away again, for your sake. It must be hard being so angry for a whole off season with nothing else to complain about other than balls which didn't effect a game's outcome. Haters gonna hate. I personally hope we get to see a rematch of pats seahawks. I hope both teams do well so we get to see them in the bowl again. That was the best superbowl I can remember watching.
