    Many European BimmerBoost members feel slighted as they do not have as many turbocharger options as US members. Well, in comes Lynx to the rescue as they are a European based N54 turbo option operating out of Switzerland. The Lynx turbochargers are available in two options: RT-650 and RT-750. As implied in the name, the 650 supports up to 650 horsepower and 750 up to 750 horsepower. Simple, right? Let's look at the design. The turbochargers feature cast manifolds and housings. The manifold diameter is larger than the hybrid options on the market as is the A/R of the turbine housing. High performance bearings are utilized. So what are the compressor wheels? RT-650 utilizes the TD04L-16T and the RT-750 the TD04HL-19T. The air intake is 2.0 inches in diameter compared to 1.75 inche for stock. You will need to upgrade pipes to accommodate the larger diameter. The turbine features 9 blades. Lynx states this makes it lighter than 11 blade setups as well as offering higher theoretical flow. Ok, so what is the pricing? Here you go: To order, go here: Further questions can be answered by @Donvittorio on the forum. BimmerBoost looks forward to seeing results from members trying out this option.

    ///Monst3r started a thread PI METH in N54
    If using PI meth via fuel it type kit would it be better to run %100 or water mixtures. Just have concerns of too much water being injected when tuning for big numbers. (hydrolock, quench, running water through injectors,cylinder wash down). Lastly will the PI n20 tmap file for aic setting work with meth.

    I am going to be getting a built engine in about 2 weeks. Forged rods, forged pistons, and possibly some head work done. Slapping some GC turbos on it as well. I have everything taken care of but I am tossed up between 3 issues. 1. Port Injection - I have a MMP port injection rail, but no controller. I was thinking about just going with a AIC controller as many people run without issues, but not sure if I should go with the JB4 + Boost controller for safety? I don't think I have read any threads of PI issues using the AIC SS controller so not sure. 2. PCV - I just ordered RB PCV valve today, but was wondering about the taping of the head and adding the external kit. Is this something that should be done for a HP goal of 700? Or is this something like the OCC that just saves you from a little bit of work? 3. Coils - Should I upgrade to the PR coil pack? Or should I run my Delphi coils until I need to replace them and upgrade to the coil pack? Thanks!

    You should be familiar with this F80 M3 as it holds the stock internal S55 platform 1/4 mile record. A very potent F80 as it runs 10.1 @ 139 in the 1/4 mile courtesy of its Pure Turbos Stage 2 upgrade. Stout but then again so is the competition it is facing in this video. There are a pair of Z06's in the video. The C7 is obviously blown from the factory and it features bolt ons. The C6 Z06 has an unnamed aftermarket blower. Both are said to be around 700 whp. The C6 pulls the C7 nicely. The next run after the Corvettes is the ZL1 LSA said to be around 700 whp. Well, the F80 M3 handles it without a problem. Next up is the C6 Z06. The M3 gets on the throttle quickly and it opens up a lead which is held. It looks like the C6 Z06 may have hit the limiter. They go again from a higher speed roll and it is a better run but the M3 still pulls and wins. This F80 is running very, very well. F80M3 Mods list: - Pureturbos Stage 2 - Precision Tuning Motorsports BEF - Burger Motorsports JB4 - FBO - DDS clutch pack - FULL WEIGHT - Race Fuel - Stock motor - Stock Fuel systems

    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.

    Also so just reminding that maybe ASR was ahead of its time with the OEM moded manifolds. Anyone remember 2010?

    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.

    Water is probably a bad idea through PI injectors, but Steve would be the best authority for that.

    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.
