    So everyone is always saying you can't compare dyno graphs because of variables, etc, etc, etc. How about this for a comparison. Same Day, Same Dyno, Same tuner, same fuel, two N54's. One car VTT GC, the other X brand Single kit with a 6465BB Twin Scroll single. The Single is running 1 degree more timing up top, boost is almost identical between the two. Both running what AZ passes for E85 which is about E54. 1000 RPM better spool, more power throughout the entire rev band, and the same power up top... Which power curve would you choose, VTT GC's FTMFW? :D

    TurboTim started a thread Help with my single turbo in N54
    About a month ago a 2010 135 fell into my lab with a bad engine. I swapped the engine with intent to sell the car but my CL65 was in storage and I kinda fell in love with this car for a bit. I put some catless down pipes and an MHD tune with E85 blend and that was fun but I have 3 cars with 500-1100hp so I wanted more! I traded some car parts with a friend who was into these for a while and got an On3 single kit with a 61mm billet BB turbo and that is where we stand today. I ordered 2 walbro 450's and I was going to mount those in tank . I am trying to learn about this car as quick as possible but there is so much info on the internet to sort though. I see there is that Bimmerboost app but can I take some of those XDF files and load them with my MHD cable easily? I am also wondering if there is some way of using the ECU to control my turbo? I am still just amazed that it seems like people just throw a tune for close to the mods they have and the ECU just works eventually and can adjust. I heard a rumor that you really cant run one of these motors lean with the direct injection and melt it down. Is there truth to this?

    Why don't you use load per gear or have Justin taper the load up in the RPM? Also, You need a taller tire for traction. Those 17's, aren't going to cut it.

    Flinchy read the thread again it was never said it was the best, please stop saying it Judging from the logs I seen from other cars they are the lowest temps I seen so far. If you want pre and post temps buy the IC and test it yourself I rather spend my hard earned on something else. All i can say for now is the fitment is superb, the tolerances and the alignment of this kit is second to none.

    3.08 is quite a bit longer and will help traction but the fact remains the n54 struggles with traction. Something to be said for building torque up top.

    Snuck down the street to a local father/son repair shop to have them fabricate a transmission mount. While the wagon was on a lift I snapped a couple pics of the undercarriage. Completed trans support built to connect my oem 535xi Transfer case support mounting points to the 335i trans and UUC mounts. It is just what I wanted: reliable, serviceable, and economical. Strictly business. My pedal trim needed to have a slit cut to allow for clutch pedal travel. A dremel made quick work of that. As you can see the foam piece was already there for the 3rd pedal. I would almost rather install turbos than this center console, I hate it. BEFORE AFTER At last, a manual transmission.

    UPDATE I picked up my heads from the machine shop earlier. They were amazed at how straight the heads were. No warpage. Even 02 could not shimmy under anything. Once I got the heads home I sealed them up for storage until my bottom end is done. I've decided I'm pulling the trigger on a 4.8L stroker for this block. Exciting times! I'm still in negotiation with VAC on some of the finer details of the bottom end build. Hopefully I'll get this sent off for getting sleeved and assembled soon. I'll be waiting for my stroker kit first though. The heads still may look a little dirty in some areas but it's just loose debris sealed in by the oil that was put on the head to keep dust and dirt off. A simple wipe will carry it all away.

    Which datazaps have pre intercooler temps? I can't see any I'm not trying to start arguments here and I apologize for bringing up anything advan related, but pre and post is the one true "stfu" data which would bring a lot of people, including myself, around.

    Don't want to stray too far off the topic at hand Tony, but when I tried 275/40/17 Hoosier DR2s (@20psi tire pressure) the car had shit for traction in 3rd gear, despite doing several rolling burnouts in a vain attempt to heat the tires. Ambient temps were in the 55F range and it was night time so the asphalt had cooled, oh and this was with a 3.46 rear end on a 6MT. Have not bolted them on since installing the 3.08, I'm hoping they should be a lot more effective in the daytime on warmer tarmac... PS - I think you meant 275/40/17 as I don't see a 45 listed for the DR2s?

    On the street / roll race car we have 275/45/17 Hoosier DR2's. We have full 28" slicks in the rear our of soon to be race car. They hook up fine we ran them a bunch of times at the strip, but this is not something you would run on the street, or a 1/2 mile event. This person (Milan) is a know it all, and when he talks, he usually shows he knows less that he wants you to believe. Remember his last minute "TX2K" build. Much ado about nothing, he is car is still slow. Ride easy @Milan Here is the set up put on the street car for mocking. The fit but just barely. To get it driveable we did a lot of work to the car they found a home on.

    That's great. Head back over to that world where people might actually care about the BS you spew on a daily basis. Lone hater removed from the thread, long overdue. Ps, show us one of YOUR slips with a 1.1 60ft. I am sure I will be waiting as long for you to bring your slow car to either dyno heads up or race, as we would be for that slip. Don't let the door hit ya on your way out now! :handgestures-thumb:

    I'm not taking it seriously. I'm just providing an objection based on my observations for those who don't want to take VTT word as fact. In other news...if you want straight line traction you need a taller tire not a wider one. We can cut 1.1 60' with 275 radial pros all day in the Corvette world, and that's on IRS.

    Dear me, the comments are coming from off topic posts from the beginning of this thread. And always from a few. All the datazaps here and on other forums present low IAT supression for this cooler. That is real data. Want some other Only Tony verification, because road logs and dyno testing now seem to mean nothing, buy one and add to the real data. On topic. poop

    No reading or literary comprehension issues over here, but I think you might suffer from some. Show me where Toyo calls the R888r a drag radial, please. It's a track tire, for cars that turn. You guys and your mythical 700hp. Power isn't fun if you're too stupid to put it down. Boost by gear, proper suspension, some research on wheels, offsets, clearances and rubber compounds... It all goes a long way. Hilarious that I legitimately replied to help the dude out, (because he thinks his tire setup is about as aggressive as you can go on a street car with narrow fenders, ha!) and both of you act defensive over big power vs stock twin power. My e46 M3 was making 650whp / 600 lb-ft. You guys assume everyone who doesn't slap a big single turbo on their N54 has no experience putting power down.

    The car is very scary on the street, I drive it with kid gloves these days. Even with 275 Hoosier DOT 2 Drag Radials we cannot hook up at all in any gear under 4th unless we warm the tires. Then its hit or miss if it will hook up in 3rd. If we want to try to launch the car, it takes fully warmed slicks, and a full prepped drag strip, that is the only way. Last time we had it at the strip it was making 100WHP less, and it sheared the Diff input shaft, we have since gone to M3 diffs. We plan to take it back to the strip soon, and drop the car down into the 10's if we don't break anything.

    You have trouble reading or understanding? He already has drag radials and this is a 700hp car not just fbo. Traction is non existent when you go beyond fbo and don't reduce boost by gear.

    The point was not to claim that FBO was in any way a comparison for 700hp. That number will always be hard to put down on the street. However, to your point and your situation, you can run a much larger tire than a 265 without doing some gross widebody kit. You could also switch to drag radials if you were so inclined. Just because this thread is about comparisons, doesn't mean every post will follow suit. Good luck with your unusable horespower though. 700hp sounds like a hoot in low gears. :laughing-rofl:
