    ASR belongs to same group of questionable vendors as the ones in this thread.

    ARH just recently released a new header system for the S54 that has shown some solid mid-range/top-end gains in initial testing, and both Mike and I will be switching over shortly!

    I've been through this cycle with turbo Mustangs in the 90s and Mitsubishis in the early 2000s. To me the only thing that feels different with the BMWs now is that there are so many options to go even faster. The old platforms had the potential to run with the fastest cars out there (and in the early days of the internet you weren't trying to compete with so many people pursuing total insanity) and it made more sense to just keep making the car you had faster. Right now the new cars have so much potential that in spite of all you can do with an N54 it's still easier to switch platforms to something else if you're going to try to run with the big boys. That's really different than the past. In the meantime these ECOboost people aren't wishing they were running with the GTRs and Z06s. But the N54 people are. So it's a much different customer mindset. I think if you could still buy a brand new 2JZ Supra right now nobody would be particularly excited about it for the same reason.

    There might be a little more room in the EB mustang but there is absolutely not "tons of space to play with". That isn't the case on any new cars or trucks and hasn't been for a long time.

    N54 is much more of a niche market than Ecoboost, simply because of the number of ford engines out there are much higher than that of bmw. In addition, it is a lot easier to development aftermarket engine parts for the mustang due to its huge engine bay with tons of space to play with, while you can't even fit an arm in the e8x/e9x engine bay in its stock configuration. Together with encoded ECUs, these contemporary german cars are always a pain in the ass to mod beyond simple bolt ons. Customers are people, there are decent ones and there are crappy ones, just like the vendors. As a consumer, it is up to yourself to do a bit of research before throwing thousands at a vendor hoping they would deliver. If everyone is smart about their money, we won't have BS vendors like these in the market for long.

    True, but remember what works on a Focus RS wont work on a Mustang ECOboost. While they are all "ECOBoost" engines the engine configurations and placement are different across body types. I would venture to guess that if you take the Mustang ECOBoost segment and the number of those produced, the numbers would be close if not less than the number of BMW cars with the N54 motor (could be dead wrong). Also, as you mentioned BMW tax is in effect when modifying these cars as well which should mean an increased profit over the same items for the ECOBoost cars. If all of this is true, there has to be a good underlying reason why the stronger vendors are not pushing this platform forward. Think about it, AMS which is one of the most get after it companies out there dropped all development of the platform.

    could trace the 02 sensors back to each harness to be sure you installed them into right one. Or could be a connection/signal issue going into DME. If you search, I think others have had the same issue with AFR/AFR2 pegging all of the sudden. I'd check with MHD and/ or Terry@BMS.

    TEC, did you fit the pump yourself? I spoke with Tundra. He said about fitting the pump with the straight fit connection and removing the push fitting on the orange hose already there. I just wondered how easy it was to do? I am waiting now on my straight fitting. I also had a brass Y connector which I am going to replace with nylon one. I couldn't find a steel Y connection. Only a steel straight fitting.

    I would argue that there are a shit ton more ecoboost motors than n54s. So the market is MUCH larger. It also costs less to get into that platform brand new. Insurance is less and mommy and daddy are more likely to buy you an ecoboost powered vehicle than n54 powered the list goes on... To go on lets say you need to buy a vehicle to develop/design your product. A focus sell for a ton less than a 355i both brand new with one platform being significantly larger(not the 335i). 2010– Ford S-MAX 2010– Ford Galaxy 2010– Ford Mondeo 2010–2011 Volvo S60 2.0T 2010–2011 Volvo V60 2.0T 2010–2011 Volvo V70 2.0T 243 PS (179 kW; 240 hp) @5500 rpm, 270 lbft (366 Nm) @1900–3500 rpm (Note: Torque figures are not uniform for all of the following vehicles) 2010– Ford Mondeo 2011–2015 Ford Explorer 2011–2014 Ford Edge 2011– Range Rover Evoque 2011– Ford S-MAX 2012–2016 Ford Falcon 2013– Ford Escape / Kuga 2013–2015 Land Rover Freelander 2 2013– Ford Fusion 2013– Ford Taurus 2013–2016 Lincoln MKZ 2015 Jaguar XE 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport 2015– Lincoln MKC 255 PS (188 kW; 252 hp) @5500 rpm, 270 lbft (366 Nm) @2000–4500 rpm 2012– Ford Focus ST 305 PS (224 kW; 301 hp) @5500 rpm, (366 Nm) @2500 rpm, Ford-RPE (Radical Performance Engines) 2011– Radical SR3 SL Approx. 245 hp (183 kW; 248 PS), 275 lbft (373 Nm) 2015– Ford Edge 2015– Ford Everest 2015– Zenos E10 S 2016– Ford Tourneo 2017– Ford Escape 2017– Lincoln MKZ 280 hp (209 kW; 284 PS) @ 5600 rpm, 310 lbft (420 Nm) @ 3000 rpm 2016– Ford Explorer 285 hp (213 kW; 289 PS) @ 5500 rpm, 305 lbft (414 Nm) @ 2750 rpm 2015– Lincoln MKC 310 hp (231 kW; 314 PS) @ 5500 rpm, 320 lbft (434 Nm) @ 3000 rpm 2015– Ford Mustang EcoBoost 350 hp (261 kW; 355 PS) @ 6000 rpm, 350 lbft (475 Nm) @ 3200 rpm 2016– Ford Focus RS 2016- Zenos E10 R 325 hp (242 kW) @ 5750 rpm, 375 lbft (508 Nm) @ 3000 rpm 2015–2017 Ford F-150 325 hp (242 kW) @ 5000 rpm, 400 lbft (542 Nm) @ 2750 rpm 2018– Ford F-150 335 hp (250 kW) @ 5500 rpm, 380 lbft (515 Nm) @ 3000 rpm 2016– Lincoln MKX 2017– Lincoln Continental 315 hp (235 kW) @ 4,750 rpm, 350 lbft (475 Nm) @ 2,750 rpm 2015– Ford Edge Sport 325 hp (242 kW) @ 5500 rpm, 380 lbft (515 Nm) @ 3500 rpm 2017– Ford Fusion Sport 350 hp (261 kW) @ 5500 rpm, 400 lbft (542 Nm) @ 2750 rpm (Front-wheel drive only) 2017– Lincoln MKZ 400 hp (298 kW) @ 5750 rpm, 400 lbft (542 Nm) @ 2750 rpm (All-wheel drive only) 2017– Lincoln Continental 2017– Lincoln MKZ 320 hp (239 kW) @5500 rpm, 400 lbft (542 Nm) @2250 rpm 2015- Ford Transit 355 hp (265 kW) @5700 rpm, 350 lbft (475 Nm) @3500 rpm 2010–2012 Ford Flex 2010–2012 Lincoln MKS 2010–2012 Lincoln MKT 365 hp (272 kW) @5500 rpm, 350 lbft (475 Nm) @1500-5000 rpm 2010– Ford Taurus SHO 2013- Police Interceptor Sedan 2013– Lincoln MKS 2013- Lincoln MKT 365 hp (272 kW) @5500 rpm, 350 lbft (475 Nm) @3500 rpm 2013– Ford Explorer Sport 2013– Ford Flex 2014- Ford Police Interceptor Utility 365 hp (272 kW) @5000 rpm, 420 lbft (569 Nm) @2500 rpm 2011–2016 Ford F-150 365 hp (272 kW) @5000 rpm, 420 lbft (569 Nm) @2250 rpm 2015- Ford Expedition/Expedition EL 380 hp (283 kW) @5250 rpm, 460 lbft (624 Nm) @2750 rpm 2015- Lincoln Navigator/Navigator L 3.5-L EcoBoost V6 is being produced for the 2017 Ford GT, revealed at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January. It will produce over 600 hp (447 kW) <-- If I was a vendor I would be all over the ecoboost platform huge revenue potential which only increases and the platform ages imo. But I understand partly where you are coming from. I would add in BMWs have always cost significantly more to modify than many other platforms and has been significantly harder to tune etc.

    Nice price. Just want to point out that 1.3" diameter equates to a 5% increase in diameter from 1.24" ... however it's actually a 9% increase in cross-sectional area (1.207 sq in vs. 1.3267 sq in), which to me is the key measure there. :)

    I have relationships with these people that go back a decade or more. I'm not putting them out there like that. Its not about pay to play many times, it becomes more. Let me give you an example. If I can sell complete turbo kits to one platform for a good profit margin and the people who represent the users (and other vendors) don't start bombing on your product before you even get it to market. Would you sell your product to those people I just described or to the BMW crowd that litter this and other forums? This is why the Ecoboost platform has vendors falling all over themselves to get products to market. You can literally get an upgraded exhaust manifold, intake, outlets, real turbo (no hybrid bs), downpipe, and intercooler for around $5500 from more than two or three vendors. All this is available only after three years of the cars being on the market, but after 10+ years whats available for the N54 crowd? Do you think its because people arent willing to pay the money?

    AWSAWS replied to a thread PI METH in N54
    I've been injecting meth with 7 cm3 (3 US gallons per min, 189cc sec) nozzles for close to a year now with no problems on my DIY setup. Although actual flow rate will be lower than that due to the multiple nozzles reducing pressure. Looks like this I now control the flow with check valves instead of solenoids. Too many wires and failure points on my setup. It's a fair old torrent.

    Probably ask Steve himself. They must have done some testing. I'd suspect 70/30 or 80/20 is best. Water pulls out a serious amount of heat and that's going to cool the cylinders alot increasing the volumetric efficiency. Meth should never knock but I suspect water reduces knock even more so. You can run leaner with less risk of knock and detonation.
