    Ingeniator replied to a thread Ethanol vs methanol in N54
    Now that they have port kits why not run meth in a separate tank to the port rail. Been thinking of doing this or running e98. I would have a flush tank to run gasoline to prevent corrosion though. I've also been debating trying it on the di but might wait until I sleeve a motor.

    yeah but the only difference with the LHD, is you can get your hand up there a tiny bit easier... it'd be basically just as difficult to fit 135i2 made it seem like it was a specific problem for RHD *only* for the VTT inlets no matter what inlet is used, there's going to be challenges fitting it... just like downpipes with the limited squeezy hand space.

    Start to finish expect to spend no less than $10K when going with a single turbo setup. Fueling, suspension, dyno time and other random expenses you don't foresee add up quickly.

    It is so unbelievably frustrating. I feel like I'm speaking another language sometimes. I don't know why it is so hard for people to understand. By the way, Vortech released a billet impeller for the YSI. I wasn't even running it previously. Guys in racing classes have picked up 3 miles per hour from the impeller switch alone. It might shock people to know nobody races a V3si. There's probably a reason for that. Regardless, you can push 2000 cfm with the blower now (and spin it to 80k rpm). I don't even know why this is a discussion. Well, it's because I have the most powerful E92 and people desperately want to try to take that away. Unfortunately for them, the laws of physics still exist. Fucking amen. Finally someone understands.

    EXACTLY what i was looking for! I love when people try to beat around the bush. especially when it comes to CFM, volume, or just basic physics. I can even start to realize having no knowlege of that engine besides what you told me that at 15 psi on that block you are not capable of making 800hp...

    Same here... I just laugh. I read these threads on this board and just laugh. Seems real simple. Who has that type of ego, puts up that type of money and time then claims the car is done and challenges everyone only to have the car sit around and do nothing. I wouldn't be surprised if the car isn't running at all. Seems pretty obvious stick's car doesn't put down what he claims. It would be nearly impossible to keep that under wraps. How is one scared to post his own info on his board? Scared of scrutiny? If a car truly makes that amount of power, there is nothing anyone can say about. Whatever happen to shutting up the haters? Why is he constantly asking for slips as proof and more info on a build but doesn't provide these for his own sake? I've been reading this shit since I was neg repped out of posting. I had the respond to this one though. This guy is a clown.

    drfrink24, I know those are completely different but my argument is that the engine was designed around using two turbochargers... not one. Not the fact that it was designed for those two turbos (referring to OEM). But TWO of any type.. still was never designed to run a single turbocharger. BMW clearly tailored the N55 around utilizing ONE turbo. This (n54) was clearly engineered by those same guys for TWO. Thats what i was saying.

    i would think so, slicksilver saw 30 hp increase on the other forum. i dont know how much more aggresive his tune was though. at least the op picked up 30 ftlb tq with the same exact tune.

    You can't post it because it never happened. Why even bother lying? For what? Just tell the people what happened. Holy crap man lololol you're this insecure? I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED WITH YOUR CAR. If that isn't clear enough how about the fact that you can't go to 18 psi? Or that you did not hit 800 whp with 15 psi as it's impossible? Do you even understand the specs or volumetric efficiency? Please post your graph/runfile and make me look stupid. Please. I dare you. Clearly.

    Sticky, I just cracked the 800 whp mark today with another lb of boost. This put me at 15psi. Should I just go to 18psi or wait for you to catch up. I won't post it till you get your monster YSI boosting ! this is going to be fun. The difference is, I can afford it. You can't ! Its as simple as that. I'm enjoying my weekend, hope you guys as well.

    Yea, it just complicates the tuning process from what I've come to understand.

    JD75 replied to a thread Anyone fit VTT inlets RHD? in N54
    FYI, the OEM rear turbo inlet pipe was definitely removed in its entirety, that was job #1 and the fitment of the rear silicone pipe was fine with a little persuasion. Sorry mate there is no trolling going on as 135i2 is just calling it how he saw it. However I'm starting to wonder if I just received an older version of the front pipe, prior to Tony tweaking the design to overcome the very problems we encountered with fitment to the stock airbox front snout. Hmmm, it might be worth revisiting this with another kit from the 2nd production cycle...

    JD75 replied to a thread Anyone fit VTT inlets RHD? in N54
    Hey mate, there is a coolant hose that runs from the thermostat housing to the bottom fitting of the radiator, do you know if the workshop ran the hose in front of the silicone pipe or behind closer to that of the rad? For best fitment of the silicone pipe to front turbo compressor housing inlet snout, the hose should be behind the VTT pipe but when we did that the hose was noticeably kinked/folded over and looked far from ideal.

    JD75 replied to a thread Anyone fit VTT inlets RHD? in N54
    Hey Flinchy, as per my post on the Aus E90Post it was the workshop in WA that had told me the TFT rear turbo inlet pipe would install without modification, I was like WTF, I am shocked but a win is a win. However it turns out their initial assessment was wrong and I was updated with said news just prior to starting an install of the TFT kit at Advan. The fitment issues associated with the VTT silicone pipes were not related to the vehicle being RHD, the rear pipe whilst a little difficult to install but with some finessing it fits just fine, the front pipe was NOT a happy camper in relation to connection of the front snout of the stock airbox. But interestingly enough other guys have not experienced this problem and after speaking to Tony he did say he made some revisions early on to the front turbo silicone pipe following similar fitment issues with a customer that was also running a Dinan CAI, so I wonder if I somehow I received one of the earlier iterations of the front pipe prior to the design being tweaked... That would certainly explain that particular problem.

    Have you observed fitment of a stock intake pipe. Either way its not a walk in the park. What modification did it require?
