    As some of you know we have recently been producing the ADE Single Turbo Kit Version2. What is different in Version2? Well, its really just some small changes to the original kit to fit the larger S-cover Turbos. This not only allows for improved airflow from the S-cover, but also opens the doors to a larger selection of turbos that fit. The New PTE 6062gen2, 6266gen2, 6466gen2, and 6870gen2 all fit with the new ADE V2 ST kit! Along with the S-cover, we have increased the turbo intake tube to 3.5” and paired it with a large K&N filter. Key features: -Bottom mount design is both efficient and keeps heat away from temperature sensitive components -Precision turbocharger… highest power producing turbo per millimeter -All quality namebrand components -No cutting or need to relocate anything (i.e. coolant reservoir) -Downpipe outlet and compressor outlet are in stock locations so any stock or factory replacement exhaust and intercooler attach with no modifications needed -included urethane dampened engine mount (usually not included when comparing other kits) -all new gaskets, hardware, and hose to complete installation… no running to the auto parts store or dealership for the nickel/dime parts -detailed and illustrated install instructions Included in the base kit ( “Hot Side Kit” ) -AD Engineering Stainless Steel tubular manifold (ceramic coating included!) -Precision 6062Gen2 or 6266Gen2 BB T4 Turbo -3” Stainless Steel Downpipe -Tial MVR Wastegate -1.75” Stainless Steel Dumptube -Turbo Hot Side Intercooler Charge Tube -3.5” 6061 Turbo Intake -K&N Air Filter -Stainless Steel and insulated Heat Shield -Urethane Engine Mount -Coolant Block Manifold and Pipe -Coolant Blockoff Plugs -Oil Drain Plug -Turbo Oil Feed Block Fitting and SS Braided Line -Turbo Oil Return Fitting and SS Braided Line -New OEM Exhaust Manifold Donuts, Studs, and copper nuts -All Necessary Couplers, Clamps, hoses, gaskets, and hardware In celebration of this badass kit we are going to offer the Bimmerboost members a special group buy on five ADE ST kits. These ADE V2 kits will be available to the first five Bimmerboost members that make deposits. The group buy cost for this kit is $5499 and available in your choice of 6062gen2, 6266gen2, or 6466gen2. The 6870gen2 is available for an additional cost. That’s $900 off of retail, but we’re not stopping there…. We will also offer 10% off any additional ADE items that the member purchases at the time of the ST kit! What a great way to get 10% off our Port Injection, 1000hp Intercooler, Engine Mounts, Rear Brake Kit, and Chargepipe. Email me at andy@ad-eng.net if you would like to take advantage of this great deal.

    As many know shortly after finishing my built N54 e92 project (LINK), the car was stolen. While I was able to recover the car, it was severely damaged (body, suspension, interior, wiring, engine, etc.) and totalled. As this was my second E92, I've decided not to get a third and have moved on to something else. Nothing beats the balance of performance, looks, and daily driveability in my opinion. But, enough of dwelling on the negative. Here is a quick look back at the Ghost aka the Snow Leopard: (Mobile users can't see the embedded video can click here: http://tinyurl.com/zdskq2w). Special thanks again to BMS, VTT, Payam, CKI and the normal cast of characters here. I'll still post on IG www.instagram.com/the_ghost_enthusiast with projects that I may or may not have already started. :music-rockout: Cheers!

    So, it's been a few weeks now running these bad boys. And all I can really say is WOW. Going from my dying turbos to these was obviously a night and day difference, but where these puppies are shining are in the top end. They just don't stop. I'd like to first off thank those involved for helping bring everything to life. Steve @ European Auto Source (Has done all my aftermarket install work on this car, and has provided unparalleled support in terms of sorting out issues and getting installs done in neck breaking time) Jesse @ PURE Turbos -- Aside from obviously providing me with these bad boys, not only tuned my car remotely while dynoing at EAS, but also provided tons of support outside of the scope of what he should have provided. Customer service level definitely over 9000! Steve @ Fuel-It Jake @ Motiv Little overview of my car 2010 335i 6AT PURE STG2 Hybrids ER Competition FMIC w/CF Shroud ER Competition Oil Cooler TFT Inlets w/2in adapter for turbos Vargas Hotside Silicone CP Macht Schnell 3in kittyless pipes Vanguard v2 exhaust Motiv Port-Injection BMS Port-Injection control Fuel-It STG3 Dual LPFP Fuel-It Upgraded Lines from tank to engine bay JB4 G5 ISO w/anti-lag MHD e85 BEF for Hybrid Turbos/PI using 100% E85 There's a long list of other mods I have done but don't really pertain to power, if you'd like to know I'll be happy include them in the thread. Currently also have-- WaveTrac LSD DSS 1000HP Rated Axles Defiv Diff Lockdown Brace Suspension overhaul and much more. Down to the good stuff. Unfortunately I don't have logs, still waiting on Steve to email them to me. I have video of the dyno process I will upload and link to this thread. With the help of Jesse's remote tuning we were able to get it up to 630WHP. Shop temps were at 92* / 26% humidity. At 26/27PSI we put down 624.9WHP, consequently we tried upping it to 30PSI and only netted 630WHP. Unfortunately there was just too much heat soak and we decided to call it a night at that. Had an opportunity to really put it through its paces on the streets at 26PSI @ 70* outside temps, and man does this thing fucking move! Unfortunately, I'm already getting trans slippage so 2nd and 3rd are limited while the remaining gears go to 26PSI. I have some videos, crappy short cell videos, that I can post of runs with various vehicles. I do have plans to go back to EAS to redyno when temps are much cooler and hopefully turn the boost all the way up. Definitely have plans to beat Lucas' numbers on the dyno. Sorry, Lucas! And hopefully with the help of Jesse @ PURE we will achieve some great numbers with finer tuning. As for transmission woes--salvation is on the way. I have on order one of the beta units of Propulsive-Dynamics built transmissions which I should have shortly. Once that's done and installed at EAS, should be able to get it to the track and put it through its paces as well and see how it performs in the 1/4 and overall street usage. More updates to this page to come, logs to be added, videos, and pictures. Thanks for taking the time to read. As far as satisfaction with the Turbos, bar non PURE is the way to go if you're deciding on a hybrid turbo setup. Hands down best customer service, great price, and a beautifully performing product with plenty of support. Updates soon!

    $134,200 for a performance car with an emphasis on track performance better result in impressive track performance. The M4 GTS makes a big statement with its MSRP but does not back it up where it matters. As a matter of fact, the Ford Mustang GT350R and the Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE both top it around Laguna Seca. This measured result is from MotorTrend's own testing. The M4 GTS laps Laguna Seca in 1:37.66. The Shelby Mustang GT350R is 1.6 seconds quicker. That is an eternity. It's long enough to do the math as to how much money someone buying a Shelby GT350R at $62,070 saved over an M4 GTS. What makes this truly spectacular is not only is the Mustang half the price it has a naturally aspirated high revving engine. Ford is beating BMW at their own game with a hand tied behind their back. Honestly, as a BMW M fan forced to sit back and watch the as M division chokes from spending so much time sniffing their own farts this is highly satisfying. Is it a wake up call to BMW? It should be considering that not only did the M4 GTS get obliterated by the Shelby GT350R the $44k Camaro SS 1LE edged the M4 GTS as well. What is the 1LE? Just an option package for the Camaro: Camaro SS 1LE Highlights 6.2L LT1 V8 rated at 455 horsepower, and 6-speed manual transmission (automatic transmission not available) Magnetic Ride Control Segment-exclusive electronic limited-slip differential with 3.73 ratio Unique forged-aluminum wheels with 285/30ZR20 front tires and 305/30ZR20 rear tires Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires with a compound and construction developed exclusively for Camaro Brembo brakes with new 6-piston monobloc front red calipers and 2-piece rotors Track cooling package with engine oil, differential and transmission coolers Suede steering wheel with shorter-throw shifter Dual-mode exhaust system RECARO front seats with aggressive bolsters optimized for shifting and steering comfort Satin black hood, front mirrors and unique 3-piece rear spoiler Available Performance Data Recorder What is the point of a $135k+ M car built for the track that can not top anyone in its price range let alone cars at a fraction of the cost? The M4 GTS does not need to be a world beater (like the cheaper Viper ACR) but it needs to be better than this to be taken seriously. Does anyone even take the M division seriously anymore? We will have the full results when MotorTrend posts their 2016 Best Driver's Car videos but it's clear that not only does the M4 GTS not live up to the hype, it's an abject failure.

    If you were to use individual throttle bodies on the N54 with the stock DME, you would have to adhere to the stock principle of sensors and stuff. Lets put performance gain discussions aside and discuss how the stock DME would handle things if the following were to be done: -Adapt the stock throttle body to drive six individual throttle bodies, retaining the original function. -One Map sensor before throttle bodies, for example inside a new plenum. -Second Map sensor after throttle body, the stock one is placed on sylinder six right? Lets place it there. -After throttle vacuum for diverter valve or blow off valve, either taken from one port after throttle body, or make a common small line from after all throttle bodies, what would work better? Would this have unwanted effects on the DME's control of things? I imagine that the second map sensor would have a much more fluctuating reading when in NA mode. This because at part throttle there would be a much smaller volume for the cylinder to pull vacuum on, causing a spike during the intake stroke, but then again a much smaller volume to full during the other three strokes, causing a much lower vacuum. This is purely out of interest, and trying to understand how things work. Any opinions?

    pits200 started a thread GC Install on XI Update in N54
    Couple updates, install should hopefully be done in the next few days. Oil pan gasket was replaced, you can see the how much heat this engine produces. While I never had to add oil during the 5k mile change intervals, it was worth it to fix the problem while replacing the turbos. You can also see the ridiculous design of the axle running through the oil pan, not sure if that's a common design among other car makers or limited to BMW. I have the PI kit installed but don't plan on running for a few weeks till I can tune for straight 93, then get an e25 tune runnign. Once I get those tunes squared away I'll have Trebila help with a 100% e85 tune. I'll be excited to see what the upgraded transmissions can do once there are a few miles on the kits as I imagine to be needing one in the near future.

    Last thread didn't work out with Google Drive photos past about 30min LOL. So here we go again! Hello all, yes I'm the lucky guy that got a set of GCs for free and I'm here to share my experiences with them with all of you! As you know, the vehicle these turbos are going on is a 2009 Z4 sDrive35i. This model has DCT and the executive ivory leather trim. My woman drives this nearly everyday for work and for a while it was setup with DCIs and a JB4, then had a MHD-based backend flash added. At some point I traded the JB4 for a set of BC coilovers that never made it onto any car as I went with a special buy of Ohlins R&T on my E90 instead. As part of this package, I also bought a set of VTT inlets/outlets since they are properly matched and it's just a very convenient time to install them. So it's now mostly stock with a basic tune via MHD and DCIs. Car has super low miles and has never had any problems like oil leaks, smoke, etc. I've maintained it quite well! So the other day this heavy-ass box showed up. I ended up opening it to figure out what the hell this was all about. Tony and Chris, these things are gorgeous! Can't wait to install them. Install progress is ongoing and I'll be posting an update in just a moment.

    There is no stopping the Viper ACR. It is a track animal bent on destroying whatever dares come across its path. The M4 GTS? The Shelby GT350R? The Porsche 911 Carrera S? The new Acura NSX? The McLaren 570S? All simply lambs led to the slaughter. Emphasis on slaughter. Just look at what the Viper ACR did around Laguna Seca in the hands on Randy Pobst: 1. Dodge Viper ACR - 1:31.58 2. Audi R8 V10 Plus - 1:34.23 3. McLaren 570S - 1:34.58 4. Mercedes-AMG GT S - 1:35.30 5. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R - 1:36.11 6. Acura NSX - 1:36.36 7. Porsche 911 Carrera S - 1:36.44 8. Nissan GT-R - 1:37.08 9. BMW M4 GTS - 1:37.66 10. Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE - 1:37.78 11. Jaguar F-Type SVR - 1:38.75 12. Aston Martin V12 Vantage S - 1:41.77 It is almost a full three seconds faster than the next car up which is the Audi R8 V10 Plus. That is a beatdown. The Viper ACR is just on another level and it's amazing this car does not get more respect. Now, it is interesting to contrast MotorTrend's results at Laguna Seca to Car and Driver's results at VIR (Virginia International Raceway). The R8 V10 showed very weakly in Car and Driver's hands yet it is the second quickest car here with Randy Pobst at the wheel. When we say Car and Driver's hands we mean their staff who simply is not on Randy's level when it comes to driving prowess. Car and Driver's Lightning Lap is a good comparison but it is not as scientific as MotorTrend's (which also isn't perfect) due to taking place on multiple days with multiple drivers. MotorTrend uses Pobst at Laguna Seca with the cars running on the same day. That is a big difference. As is the fact VIR rewards power in the lap time more than the shorter and tighter Laguna Seca. What do we learn? That the M4 GTS get its ass handed to it by the Mustang GT350R yet again. It loses at VIR, it loses at Laguna Seca, and it is simply safe to say the GT350R is the superior track performer anywhere. Yes, at a fraction of the price. When you bring the M4 GTS asking price into the argument the car looks like a joke. Is its laptime respectable? Sure, if beating a Camaro SS that comes in at less than 1/3 of the money by a tenth of a second is respectable. The AMG GT S is cheaper, the 911 Carrera S is cheaper, the Nissan GT-R is cheaper, the Mustang GT350R is cheaper, and the Viper ACR is cheaper. What do they all have in common? They are all better performance cars than the M4 GTS. The Mercedes-AMG GT S deserves honorable mention beating the stout GT350R as well as the incredible new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Considering the GT S is not even anywhere near as hardcore as the GT model line gets, that is impressive. Enjoy the videos of the laps below with impressions from Pobst. The winner of the competition will be announced shortly. If we were to guess, the Carrera S is the favorite.

    I figured I'll give Energy Suspension liquid urethane a try. I made 2 mounts so if anyone is interested send me a message and we'll see what we can work out. I used the 80A formula. 80A - Even trade off between performance and vibration when it comes to motor mount inserts. This formula is the most popular for it's ability to significantly increase vehicle performance while still allowing some small amount of flex in the mounts to keep vibration and noise to reasonable levels Here are some quick pictures.

    PTF (Pro Tuning Freaks) is working on their boodmod3 software which is expected to shake up the BMW F-Series ECU flashing market. Why? Because the software will allow more control as well as the ease of flashing your ECU from home. OBD-II flash compatibility is being worked on although we will have to wait and how is supported in the final product. While PTF works on bootmod3 they have some promising results to share from a tuned S55 motor. This is a stock car only with different air filters: 91 horsepower at the wheels and over 100 lb-ft of torque at the wheels gained on 93 octane pump gas. All with an OTS (off the shelf) map: bootmod3 is shaping up very well and with OTS maps and the ability to get custom tunes with OBD-II flashing, what is there not to like?

    516 rear wheel horsepower is an incredible number when you factor in this is naturally aspirated horsepower from a 5.0 liter S85 V10 motor. In other words, over 100 wheel horsepower per liter. Evolve's tuning is displaying incredible efficiency out of the vaunted V10 BMW M powerplant. What are the modifications? Evolve Alpha-N tune Evolve long tube headers Supersprint full exhaust Eventuri intake Underdrive pulley 93 octane pump fuel 516 rwhp Dynojet standard correction Kind of makes you wish BMW stuck with the motor. With a pair of turbos the sky's the limit.

    It seems there are companies who are very serious about setting some impressive N54 times. AD Engineering is one of those groups and they had DSS (Drive Shaft Shop) make a custom set of 8.8 inch axles with the goal being 1000+ lb-ft of torque handling capability. That shouldn't be a problem: AD Engineering's @andy_divers looks ready to break some records: This drag racing season should prove interesting.

    This is the same BMW F80 M3 that recently broke into the 10's on the factory S55 turbochargers. In case you were wondering what kind of power it took to get there here is the answer. 585 horsepower at the wheels along with over 600 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. It looks like two different maps were tested as on the lower power figure runs the peak torque is substantially higher. Unfortunately, the full graphs are not posted so we can not get a look at the entire curve. Perhaps @Mike_f80nyc can post them. Still, impressive numbers. Especially the torque figures topping over 600 lb-ft at the wheels with a JB4 and methanol on the stock turbos. To BimmerBoost's knowledge, these are the highest power and torque figures from the factory turbos with bolt on modifications.

    Can someone with a bit more fancy book learnin tell me why it's a bad idea to run a secondary high pressure pump in series with the stock pump? Not belt driven, not oem but mounted under hood T'd in to rail with a pressure regulator? Edit: This would be with a full surge tank low pressure solution

    Hi guys, I just got a 2008 335i E93 as a project car. I just got a donor 335IS that ill use the transmission off of since the car currently has an automatic transmission. I just ran a cross a Precision 6870 for a good price that I plan to buy. What do you guys think of the idea of doing a single turbo project on a convertible and piecing the kit together? Would it be better I just get a kit? Whats the max power the IS DCT will reliably hold? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
