    This certainly is going to be an interesting option considering how it is priced and the stated capability. The Stage 3 turbo kit from MM Performance Engineering retails for $3000 and is capable of 700 wheel horsepower with the proper supporting modifications. At the heart is a TD04HL-19T upgrade. The 19T compressor wheel is a billet piece with 11 blades and extended tips. To see 700+ wheel you will need fueling upgrades and to push these turbos past 30 psi of boost. BimmerBoost member @Sirdaft1 is beta testing these turbochargers but he is not going for peak horsepower on the dyno but a daily useable 500 rear wheel horsepower on 93 octane. We will see how this option pans out. MMP has the best turbo bang for your buck for your N54, TD04HL-19T with true 19T native compressor housing. These turbos are capable of 700whp+ on the N54 and at just $3000 its a bargain and they bolt right up to your N54. The 19T compressor wheel is a forged billet wheel with extended tip technology from BorgWarner and with 11 blades made in the GTX style. The Turbo consist of a TD04 bearing housing modified to connect to stock oil lines, coolant lines and stock turbine housing. The turbine housing has been modified to accept the TD04HL turbine and flange up to the TD04 bearing housing. The kit requires upgraded inlet pipe system and also intercooler charge pipe system optimized for the high flowing native 19T compressor housing which is over twice the size/flow of stock compressor housing. This will make sure the turbos are flowing to their maximum potential along with the upgraded plumbing for the turbo.

    Ok so for the past month I have noticed intermittent long cranks when i go to start my car, and it doesn't do it every single time so I figured it was probably just a cold start issue that I'd deal with until it got bad.. Well a few days ago I stopped to grab lunch and after I was done (approx 30 minutes) I went back to my car, started up fine, put it in reverse, and about halfway backed out of the parking space the engine just turned off.. All the lights and everything else stayed on, so I turned it all the way off, and it started back up and drove fine.. Well two days later I'm driving around all day just fine with no issues, then I go to meet up with my girl and as I'm parked and waiting with the a/c on, not even 5 minutes later the engine turned off, lights and all stayed on again.. I let it sit for a few minutes and was just thinking to myself what could be causing this, so I came on here, no dice.. She came out, it started up fine, and drove fine the remaining 5 hours of my work day.. Welllllll, this morning I go out to go to the gym, start my car and it immediately starts having an erratic idle, half engine light, and i tried to give it a little gas and it seemed unresponsive.. This is exactly what it was doing So upon searching the forums someone mentioned to do a throttle reset, which I did and now it seems to be fine again..????? Some people on the forum said battery, others said throttle body, others have even claimed to check the charge pipe.. Well I did look at my charge pipe and MAF sensor on the CP and they're both still seated just fine so I know those haven't come off, but I'm thinking this isn't really related to that (could be wrong) but just figured I'd see if anyone else has had any issues like this, and found a fix for it since the previous individuals never posted back if they fixed it or not.. I'm assuming the stalling issue and the new idling issue this morning are related, because they've never happened before the other day.. Also, my car has been experiencing an occasional long crank lately as well, which I read was fuel related most likely.. It's not every single time, but it has been happening and I see how that could be related to making my car stall, but the whole idle thing this morning doesn't make sense on how that could be fuel related.. I did pull the codes from when it was doing that crap this morning and they all seem to relate to "throttle" issues but again I haven't ever experienced this so just looking for some insight.. Thanks..

    triggz started a thread S63/S63TU: RPM Oscillation in N63, N63TU, S63, S63TU, and N74
    Hey I'm experiencing a weird issue with my M5. The rpm keeps going up and down off throttle. It's very annoying and its not throwing codes. I changed my coils 20K ago and just recently replaced my plugs. Any thoughts?

    Here's a log of a stock M4 on pump gas only this time turning things up a little with some custom tuning. As most of you know from the initial stock car's datalog posted earlier the S55 runs about 13-14psi down low ramping up from there towards redline to about ~19psi. Here we have added quite a bit of midrange and another 1-2psi top end for about 20-21psi holding throughout the RPM range. Ignition timing is stable without any significant timing pull and fueling is looking a lot better not going as rich as on the stock tune which was going down into the mid 11s in the top end at WOT. You can also see how much smoother we have the throttle plate working here which is noticable from the seat of the pants feeling. On the factory flash you could feel a slight hesitation under WOT in the mid 5k RPM range and up which was also very evident on the previous log. What you can also see is how the S55 uses the throttle plate for boost control during spool mode to build up pressure, very much like the N55 but unlike the N54. NEW - bootmod3 datalog with a customized map:

    yes, multiple tig weld passes are applied to the turbine housing external throat area to build up a significant amount of material in order to machine out the bore for the TD04HL turbine wheel, similar to Super RB Evos.

    Thanks Justin. what I do to ensure 100% quality is do all the assembled of every CHRA myself wil matoculously measuring tolerances and fitment. I do not outsource the critical assembly of the CHRA or give to a low wage worker to compete, it is a very critical step. I then send out to VSR balance in the US and I review every report to be in specification and provide to the customer when purchased. It s balanced on a Turbo Technics VSR machine. T hen final assemble and clock the CHRA compressor housing and turbine housing with calipers to make sure everything is orientated perfectly and will fit correctly. Every CHRA comes with upgraded thrust bearing system. WPC bearing treatment is available for those that want the upgrade for only $200 more, not required but a great option for longevity. 1 yr warranty is included with the turbo and I am thinking about offering 1 yr extended warranty for purchase because I believe strongly in the quality of these turbos. I have examined many smoking turbos and in early smoking failures many times I have found an assembly error or a piece out of specification in the CHRA. Once the thrust bearing is eaten up slightly from excessive friction due to an assembly error or improper clearance in a shaft component, then the turbine Dela fall out of its sealing surface, the whole CHRA goes out of balance and oil leaks into the turbine housing and therefore smokes. Others that outsource thier CHRA assembly don't control thier quality as tightly and are more susceptible to smoking failures. i also offer high temp ceramic coating internal and external for only $150 more since I do it in bulk and pass on the discounts to the customers. Others offer this service for $325.

    Coming in a bit hot here buddy. You A) assume I am the only one who will be running these B) May not realize that I run a stock 6AT. 6AT's go boom much quicker at max power until further developments take place. C) May not quite understand my specific intentions with going for a setup like this. This car is my daily driver and I want consistent, reliable power. I would like to run 500rwhp on 93oct, get rid of the leaky/rattling stockers and have an option that gives me the capability and headroom to up the boost once further progress is made on the fueling and 6AT front. That said, these looked appealing for my specific desires.
