    Hello everyone, by now most of you have seen the waves our new N54 GC turbocharger offering is making on the platform, so it's time to spill the beans on all the details, such as pricing, availability, fitment, logs, ordering giveaway, etc. We will start with pricing. the pricing schedule will be as outlined below. What is included with the default kit is turbos, inlets, charge pipe. If you already have inlets, you get a discount, if you already have one of our charge pipes (no one does yet, but a ton on order) you can get another discount. Intro Price: Intro Price: $3799 Turbos only without inlets, and CP Intro Price: $3899 Turbos with CP only (you already have either our 2" inlets or another 2" inlet brand, stock frame 1.75-1.80" inlets will NOT work) Intro Price: $3999 Turbos with Inlets, and CP both MSRP once intro price is over: MSRP: $4299 turbos only without inlets, and CP MSRP: $4399 Turbos with CP only MSRP: $4499 Turbos with inlets, and CP We will be doing the intro price for the first 20 sets sold, after that prices go up to MSRP. Availability: They are available on our website right now for Pre-order at the intro price. Sign up for the website, and use discount code VTTGCINTRO our initial order is 50 sets of these from our manufacture, we expect them arrive to us in about 30-60 days. As soon as they come in, the pre-orders ship the next day, after that we will keep stock on hand meaning, any order ships the same of next day ordered, if done so by 3pm PST, if not the next day. VTT buy back program: If you have a current set of VTT hybrid turbochargers this is the buy back offer when purchasing a set of new GC turbochargers. Stage 1: $500 credit towards your purchase, to be refunded once turbos are sent back Stage 2: $1000 credit towards your purchase, to be refunded once turbos are sent back Stage 2+: $1500 credit towards your purchase, to be refunded once turbos are sent back We do not offer any buy back for other manufactures N54 turbochargers, if you have a set try to sell them, if you have a current unfilled order speak with them about your options. Customer Appreciation Giveaway: The way we will be doing our giveaway is a little different, and gives the people who really want a set of these, the ultimate odds to get a free set. Here is how it will work. For the first 20 intro sets, every person who orders is eligible for the giveaway, for each 10 sets ordered we will give one set away, meaning by the time we get to 20 sets sold, you have a 1 in 10 chance of winning! This is a much better contest in our opinion, instead of 1 in 2-300 odds of winning, its 1 in 10, and it keeps people who are just entering the contest to possibly win, and sell the turbos from doing so. This contest if for people who truly want a set of these, and want very high odds of winning. We will make another thread for the contest, but it will be simple, our website tracks date of order, as soon as we hit the first 20, we pull a random number between 1-20 twice, and that number gets a full refund of their purchase price! Simple, and effective. (Yes this giveaway will actually happen) Fitment: Currently we are offering GC kits for N54 335LHD, 135,535,Z4. RHD fitment is coming, we are having the rear housing cast, but it takes a couple months. For the 135/535/Z4 guys, the 335 kit fits your vehicles just fine with one small change of a rear water line, which you can either buy from us, or BMW, we provide the part number. You simply purchase the 335 kit with the CP included, and retrofits the rear turbo to the 335 orientation. We have seen this done, on quite a few cars in the past with zero issues. For RHD vehicles due to the steering shaft, you will need to RHD housing, and charge pipe orientation. Do not fear it is coming! You will finally have a 750WHP RHD option! Some details as taken from our website.: WHP Level supported (with proper fuel, upgrades, and tuning) Stock-750WHP We are proud to introduce the latest in our line of N54 turbocharger products the VTT "GC"turbochargers. This is a new N54 turbocharger from the ground up, using 100% new parts throughout. Some of the ground breaking features are fully new turbocharger from the compressor housing, to the bearing housing, to the turbine housing, we had them engineered to fit in the stock N54 location, but the full flow of a much larger turbo. You will not find any huge TD04HL wheels stuffed into the tiny stock turbine housing. Every part on these turbos were designed around our specific goals for power, flow, and reliability. What we ended up with is a turbocharger that can utilize the stock location while providing enough flow for 750WHP.+ To do this we increase the area inside not only the manifolds, but also the turbine, and compressor housings, we also slightly increase AR ratio on the turbine housing to free up even more flow, while not giving up anything in spool. To put it bluntly, there is no other 750WHP capable turbocharger option on the market single or twins that can match the spool, ease of fitment, power or reliability of our "GC" turbochargers! A few more details: Upgraded thrust: Every set of stage GC turbos comes with a performance upgraded thrust to extend the life of the turbochargers. Billet Compressor wheels: Billet compressor wheels are used to maximize flow per shaft revolution Turbine housing is cast from 22+NB Stainless steel Dyno Graph, and Logs: I am sure most of you have seen the dyno graph, but if not here it is. We made 736WHP/675WTQ on 30 psi, and 9-9.4 degrees of timing. We kept TQ down on purpose to try to not break anymore motors, if we went for big boost down low, 750WTQ is easily on tap. Please note the MHD is reading high on boost due to the 4 bar scaling, our AEM log is true boost in the manifold.

    Itsbrokeagain started a thread For Sale: RB turbos (used) in Buy/Sell - Parts
    I have been discussing multiple forced induction routes with a client of mine and we have come to the decision of selling the RBs that are on his car. They are I think among the first sets ever sold with the billet wastegate actuators, going on 5 years old at this point. They've started smoking (never seen beyond 16-17psi on the JB4, 93 octane only), but it may be due to valve seals or an old PCV system...I won't be able to diagnose it because its all coming apart for a big build. Car has had meticulous oil changes since new, so no oil coking issues. I'd like to get $600 for them, I have a few emails from Rob on having them rebuilt for a few dollars and various upgrades or you can take them and send them in for a core to your turbo brand of choice. Forgot to mention they are from a 335i.

    Hey, I was wondering with all this knowledge in N54 land now , and all these shiny upgrades available , who or what is concidered a good and reliable log tuner, because the Ecu tuners here in Belgium don't know sh*t about the N54 platform. right now i am running a OTS map from MHD. Mods are the usual : downpipes , FMIC, Charge pipe with tial BOV, and bigger inlets. Last mod i am concidereing somewhere near summer is Meth and JB4. (other priorities atm) So i am looking for a good personal tune. This is my last log with the MHD OTS Stage 2 map . http://datazap.me/u/odanbe/log-1455304262?log=0&data=4-21&solo=1&mark=25 thank you :)

    Some great news since 800+ torque S55's will be seen soon. Will also help for the lucky N54's with DCT. Not looking forward to the sound though from straight cut gears.

    The Gallardo Super Trofeo is no slouch. It is lighter than a standard Gallardo at roughly 31XX pounds. It makes 570 naturally aspirated horses from its 5.2 liter direct injected V10. You can see one go head to head with a Porsche 991 Turbo here where it runs 11.3 @ 125 in the 1/4 mile. By ditching the wing it can go over 130 and run low 11's as it did against a tuned BMW F82 M4. So, it's pretty quick, right? The thing is the Lambo in the video has its wing on not that it would really matter here. The D3PE supercharged Viper gives the Lambo the hit yet easily reels it in and passes in a matter of seconds. It isn't the highest quality video but it goes to show the massive power disparity between the two. That is the difference between 750+ wheel horsepower and 500 wheel horsepower.

    When was I hating? Those are great numbers and no hate at all. I just want to compare and contrast logs. I'm just a data whore. I 100% was not hating at all. You said you were going to point it and I simply missed it. As for the mount, I think we should start a thread to get everyone that has them chime in. We have now installed multiple sets locally and they are awesome. Only ones that feel bad have solid tranny mounts or a mis/injector issue that was noticeable until the mounts. Sorry you thought I was hating, but I don't need the "bad review" threats. Your negative public opinion of my product is dependent on you thinking I'm hating on yours?

    Don't cater to the hater, let him find it himself. Obviously something got up his ass. Makes me question why I'm supporting him or his products. My AD mounts review will be upcoming. My teeth chatter at idle, and the car is unbearable unless I turn the idle up to 1100 rpm. I'llbe pullingt them out soon as I get it back on the lift.
