    Depends what your definition of "pushing hard" is and how power-happy the dyno is. I think to push RR600, Standard RB, VTT Stage 2 to 600whp is pushing it extremely hard.

    That's something Hexon or a distributor will have to answer. Port injection isn't going to hurt.

    can the rr600 with PI easily achieve 600whp without pushing them hard?

    I'd need to drive it more to really give you an informed answer. At first glance, ya there's a strong resonance throughout the cabin in 6th at cruising speeds. It's not even so much an audible drone, as it is a physical resonance. You can feel it. I'm a bit worried it'll lead to a ton of creaks and groans - but it's a vert so that's already the case. I'm gonna try and get some videos for you all but this damn weather will not cooperate. I'd just put it this way (again w the caveat that I have about 30-40 miles on it) - it's the loudest, most aggressive exhaust i've ever heard on an N54. Period.

    Dude that sucks! I'm so sorry to hear! I was waiting on your results, I knew they were going to good. I'm in Philly right now on delay wish I had more time to spend here. It's enough to get a little toasty at the bar but not enough to leave the the airport

    I have a feeling this is how most people will go about it. There might be a market for an off the shelf solution.

    Ya it actually kicked the rear end of the car in the air a bit. I'm having a failure analysis done on the motor at VAC and will know what happened to trany when its taken apart. Shit happens. Just seems to happen to me more often than not. At least i get to fly out to Philly to meet the guys at VAC. Never been to Pennsylvania and look forward to eating a real steak n cheese!

    so the flywheel was made from scratch. the quartermaster clutch centers where made as per the pic above to accommodate the spline on the BMW gearbox as those centers where from a chevy. we made a complete new release bearing to accommodate for the new height of the setup. the ring gear was used from the oem setup

    Sorry to hear that man. I know a handful of folks in oil (offshore and permian) and it's just a hard time for the industry. GL with the build - it always takes longer than one thinks! The car will fly with the stronger hybrids.

    Well if it ain't one thing it's another. Finally laid off in the oilfield after making it through 7 layoff periods in my office as the youngest field engineer in the company. I have decided to be conservative until I find another job so I won't be going with the Motiv turbo kit at the moment. I still have the Motiv built motor, roll cage and all that but for now to enjoy the car and just wait out this downturn I'll be going back to twin turbos. It's unfortunate but it's the smart thing to do. SOOOOOOO if anyone knows of someone selling some factory frame upgraded turbos tag them up here. I'm looking for ones along the line of pure stage 2's, vargas 2 plus etc. Daily drive 6-700 wheel for now with some spray should hold me over. Sorry for anyone who was rooting for me in the automatic game but shit happens. Chalk it up and keep moving
