    Not about the reading...I have just observed a difficult fitment to a a RHD 135. Glad yours was easy.

    The dual pump approach seems good in theory, although for our development cars we were not able to wait, and went PI. And I have to say I've been thrilled with the PI performance & simplicity. I think we still have a dual pump shotgun kit on order. I can't remember. Maybe we'll put it on an N55 or something so we can test it out a bit.

    Clearly you guys aren't reading, I've just had them fitted to a RHD, the rear pipe requires some encouragement but can't see the huge difference in time and effort. It fits, no problem with enough clearance.

    which part isn't straight forward? it's nowhere near the steering rack... i'm guessing they didn't just cut the rear intake off, and are blaming that for the time consumption? if there is an issue with RHD fitment and VTT intakes... then it's pretty much gotta be an issue with LHD too. I'm smelling troll.

    Every other thread is like a fucking soap opera. You both need to just ignore each other. PERIOD. Talk about the merits of your products, but keep it professional. No more "Vendor X", no more baiting and insulting. I like reading this forum because of the technical objectivity, but this back and forth shit just ruins that. Stick to the facts!

    Extensive labour costs for VTT. It is not a straight forward fit for RHD. Both TFT and VTT require modification for our cars. That's the cost of making power. :)

    Talk to the people who have fitted VTT to RHD. A time consuming and expensive nightmare. There is enough data on forums illustrating the results of TFT. You wont have to wait too long for local data to show the difference between VTT and TFT.

    why would it be better than VTT, i'm really curious as to how people come to this conclusion, when the VTT inlets fit without modification and are cheaper to boot?

    Just like the 5x you mentioned us in this thread with the typical off topic baiting. Or the other threads we always see you talking about us when we aren't even involved. It is quite the LULZ and yet the simultaneous honor! :dance: Sorry about the off topic addition it is just humorous seeing this train wreck of a personality day in and day out type away believing they do no harm and it is all us...

    http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=17644317 it's the thread he says TFT fits without modification.. ah then later came back today/yday saying not even close. That's more what i expected. i can't see a reason for RHD to have any issues with VTT inlets besides most local shops being pants-on-head with anything to do with the N54... the ONLY RHD difference is the steering rack, which the VTT inlets are miles away from.

    First we have heard of this. Overall though regardless of issues and costs, it maybe the best the RHD can do for now. Do you mind linking the JD75 E90post thread? Thanks, Rob

    VTT Silicon are a nightmare for RHD in terms of installation and don't fit without major headaches and cost. But the Advan car running the VTT runs 375rwkw with more left once sorted. And Aussie dynos aren't as power friendly. TFT is a pretty straight forward fit for the front turbo but will require major modification to fit the rear pipe and maintain the design characteristics of Brian's design. JD75 tells the story on e90post for those following or have either one of the above items waiting for fitment in Australia. Advan are currently sorting a TFT solution for RHD and mine is the next cab off the rank. Fingers crossed.

    HUH? Oh, yes, we are selling our PI Kit knock-offs like hotcakes! Check them out on our website, we will sell them just call or email us we have plenty on hand!! Or maybe we are having a VTT style $$$ grab pre-order this weekend to fund our development! What else you want to add, I swear you are well beyond :crazy:. BTW, we currently offer no PI product. We do however see the large benefits in the setups and they are quite elegant themselves and they are just now getting started and MOST EVERYONE is going that route for a good reason. If you want a PI setup contact Terry over at BMS or Motiv… not us as we do not offer them. Thanks for the free advertising though. Rob

    Flinchy replied to a thread Ethanol vs methanol in N54
    Just adding to the discussion :P Very important now that people are shooting for crazy power. Often it can seasonally vary (or just batch vary) to about 70%, and rarely a bit above 85%. 70% more often in winter in cold climates too though. for those at the level of fitting a return line with PI and such, it'd probably be worth fitting an ethanol sensor and gauge to monitor it. no harm/downsides to doing to... since the likelihood of having a proper flex tuning solution any time soon is uh. minimal.

    The VTT Silicon units should fit RHD cars no problem. I've heard the TFT's are not fitting RHD either (at least as they come out of the box). Surely with some modifications they could be made to work, then could be offered as a RHD specific product. Rob

    If you have access to e85 by all means run it. One thing that gets missed is most generally don't have a clue of actual ethanol content in their tank

    It's obsoleted? Has someone released a superior direct injection fuelling solution for the N54? It seems you're implying PI has... any advantage at all over DI, at equivalent flow levels..

    Someone sounds a little upset that the benefits of their Shotgun are now Shotgone. Can't say that we blame them, it is unfortunate to put much effort into development into something only to find out it is obsoleted before even shipping them. The idea was clever and the innovation was there, but just a little too late. For those who still believe in it, pick one up, my bet is that you'll still be converting to PI within a year. Rob

    E85 has 69% the energy density of gas per volume Methanol (100%) has 48% http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_density http://www.ibchem.com/IB/ibfiles/energy/ene_doc/specificheatcaps.pdf meth has a slightly higher specific heat capacity, which might be one reason? methanol is cheaper than ethanol i can't particularly find anything else for methanol having any advantage over ethanol. Though with more being injected per horsepower, AND having a higher specific heat capacity, it would provide superior cooling no?

    so no need for anything more fancy than boost level x = pump2 on? that's pretty cool. Completely seamless correct? DME just sees the fuel and dials itself up/down accordingly i take it?

    Also to answer some of the questions, we tried a bunch of different activation methods while testing, we did have controllers made, but it is voltage PWM regulation box with a knob on it, clockwise more PWM or more fuel, counter clockwise less PWM or less fuel. But once we got everything really dialed in, we started letting the DME control the second pump as well completely, we have a hobbs switch that can come basically wherever you want, we have it set at 15 psi, so 15 psi the second pump comes on, and the DME now has control of both pumps.
