    Many of you do not seem to understand what took place or why. The idea was to give back to the community as we have several times. Additionally, to get exposure for BimmerBoost. This website is not obligated to give anyone any free parts but we have done many giveaways in the past to show appreciation for the userbase. I contacted Rob well before the RB EVO turbos were ready asking if he would like to help the community. Rob graciously agreed to discount a set of turbos but told me the turbos were not out yet and that he had people waiting and already paid up for set. I published information on these turbochargers for the benefit of the community before they were released. We had a contest and the contest expired before these turbos were released. I decided to extend the contest further but the dates I chose still did not align with development. The contest expired before the turbos could be delivered to the contest winner. That was the end of that. Now, some vendors have taken this as meaning Rob did something wrong. He did nothing wrong. He fulfilled the orders of his customers AS HE SHOULD. How you would feel having ordered and paid for a set of turbos only to be informed you would have to experience a delay due to a forum contest? Is that fair? No. Now, everyone had the best of intentions here. It did not work out as planned. That happens sometimes. The main thing is for Rob to worry about his business. That is his priority. Despite attacks and people accusing Rob of doing something wrong he is STILL WILLING to participate in a giveaway. I'm surprised as if I were him I'd tell people to go pound sand after the insults sent his way for doing nothing more than wanting to help. Once again, Rob did nothing wrong. We can revisit this and hold a new contest but the way people are acting is turning me off as well. I proposed a bigger and better giveaway that would include all of our vendors with you, the user, choosing what you want on your car. Unfortunately, some vendors want to do their own thing and own giveaway instead of participating. That is fine. That is their prerogative. However, it does make organizing things difficult. In summation, Rob did nothing wrong, contributed greatly, and did everything he was supposed to do and then some. It is not his fault development time and delivery time did not align with a contest that was not of his making. Everyone simply wanted to help. Nobody deserves any blame.

    This is a great race to see with the two previous generation German rivals duking it out with some boost. The C63 AMG belongs to BoostAddict member @gzim335. You likely know the car as it was involved in a controversial race against an F82 M4 with upgraded S55 turbos. The C63 M156 V8 equipped with a Weistec Stage III 3.0 liter twin screw is fast. We know that and an example recently ran 10.1 @ 139 in the 1/4 mile. We do not know which AA supercharger kit is on the E92 M3. It is running meth and higher boost so it is possibly a Level III but hopefully clarification on that will come from the participants. What is clear is that on the stock internals the M156 V8 has an advantage over the S65 V8 on stock internals which is not surprising. The torque certainly pays dividends here as the C63 opens up just enough of a lead to pass the M3 before running into traffic at high speed. While the video is very much appreciated it goes to show how quickly one runs out of space at these speeds and power levels. Hopefully we can see a rematch with multiple runs on open road so it is safer for all involved and nobody has to let off to avoid an accident.

    Hey Everyone! Before my BMW, I had 5 other manual cars and they all have had threaded shift knobs. Do they make a kit or adapter for our car so we can use non-bmw shift knobs? I've been looking around and the only adapters i can find have a crazy thread pitch so you can only use that brands shift knobs.

    Hi, I am in the process of replacing turbos on my 2007 335i (yes hybrids). I just got turbo #1 off and inspected the exhaust ports. I was hoping for dry ports and valves indicating no problems with exhaust valve seals. Sure enough they are dry as they can be. However, the valves are extremely white, albino style. I rather have them on the white side than wet but is this normal or anyting I should look out for? Right before putting the car away for winter I had a HPFP failure where it could not hold rail pressure above 4500rpm at the last trackday (road course) of the year. Worked ok while babying it but pretty much as soon as I got on it hard the car would limp. I only test drove the car after replacing the HPFP and it performed as it should again. I am thinking the extreme white could be from running a lean at times while HPFP was failing?! Any inputs would be appreciated as well as any tips of what to look out for or do while replacing turbos. Thanks

    So I'm switching over to single turbo and no longer need my ER charge pipe or injen intake. The ER chargepipe is a very solid piece that fits PERFECTLY. It is the long version, which on earlier n54's deletes the POS piece above the intercooler. The injen intake is missing the power steering bracket, but you could easily fab up your own. ER charge pipe long version trial flange 1 meth bung - $275 + shipping. I'll even throw in the trial BOV for an extra $150 if you buy it together. Injen intake - $250 + Shipping

    Stainless is a terrible material to use for a charge pipe too. It absorbs radiant heat extremely fast and holds onto it for a long time compared to aluminum. That's why even the OEM used aluminum for the turbo outlets. Aluminum, gold, and carbon fiber have extremely good emissivity.

    Thats pretty funny, even companies that are really not on the platform radar are paying attention to what we started on the N54 with the sleeved turbos. TTE makes good stuff
