    Hello all, I rarely post on the forums but a few months ago after one of my stock turbo went dead, I decided it time to upgrade! I contacted Todd Cope at The Horsepower Barn in Washington for their AD Engineering Single PTE 6262 Turbo Kit. The price was right and it the quality of the kit looks very good so I went ahead and ordered it. It took about three months for me to get the kit but it was due to the carbon fiber intake tube that needs to be custom made from scratch so it took a while but it was well worth the wait. I had Sammy installed the kit for me since he has done a ton of turbo swaps and knows what’s he doing when it comes to BMWs and cars. Two days of hard work and he’s was done with the transplant of my motor. The turbo is in and the engine is back in its engine bay. We quickly put it on the dyno to have Jake at Motiv remote dyno tune the car. There were some issues with my spark plugs and 02 sensors so after a many pulls Jake called it a night and we ended up with 480hp/430tq on pump. Jake said the turbo is very efficient and we still have a lot of room for more power after I get all the little bugs taking care of. Overall I am very happy to get my car back and that everything went smoothly. When I got behind the steering and start driving the car for the first time, it felt really smooth until at about 4k rpm when the wastegate open, the car just screams power. It’s a blast to drive my car again now. My buddy who was driving behind me said my car sounded like a bike, it’s loud. I even let my buddy who owns a c6 Z06 drove the car and he was impress! He’s a BMW hater but after driving my car his impression was he really like it a lot and said it feels faster than when it had it FBO with E85 stack with JB4 and custom tune. He actually wants to buy a 335i now after driving my car. When you put the hood after driving the car hard the engine bay feels a lot cooler after compared to the stock twins. I am still working with Jake to dial the tune to get more power on pump so I’ll update you guys when I make more power. I managed to get a video of the dyno run but no graph :( . A lot of thanks to: Todd Cope and Andy Divers at The Horsepower Barn & AD Engineering Sammy at Sammy’s Auto Services Jake at Motiv

    Introducing the new GTRS4 BMW F82 M4 widebody kit from Vorsteiner. The kit is similar in style to their GTRS3 widebody kit most have seen for the E92 M3. Vorsteiner gives the F82 M4 very aggressive wide rear fenders as they did with the E92 M3 which certainly makes the car look much more aggressive. The photos certainly looks great and the design is solid. BimmerBoost will give impressions on how the kit looks (and the fitment) in person at the SEMA show in Las Vegas next week where the kit will makes its official debut.

    9180 i don't think is much wider... and i would assume if the slightly smaller one fits, so would the 9180?

    Kit includes the carbon fiber intake. Hot side kit is $6900 and complete kit is $8500 (Hot side kit plus intercooler, ic piping, chargepipe, and tial bov). Kit comes standard with a pte 6262 JB which is capable of 700hp. Ball bearing and 67mm upgrades are available at an additional cost. This 6262 kit has made 550hp on a dyno dynamic on 92oct and cobb.Any numbers past that will require higher octane fuel and the 3.5bar map.

    Sorry I do not have the dyno sheet. But I will get one when it's completely dial in. Thanks Todd, its a blast to drive it now even when it's not fully dial in. Jake just sent me a 2nd revision so I will let her rip and report back soon. I will have to let andy_divers get back to you on the pricing and the kit capability. But the kit does come with the carbon fiber intake as well as every nuts bolts clamps etc. you need to install the kit. This kit is a complete plug and play kit, but you need an aftermarket intercooler and charge pipe. Thanks man!

    A couple questions: At what power level is the kit capable of? Does the kit come with the CF intake? What was the price of the kit without install cost?

    Ooops you're right, good eye. They had the Mondavi Private Selection Heritage Red as well as the Mondavi Reserve, I tried both and screwed up with my notes.

    Hmmm, I think we can do that with my setup on the current 6767. I did 477whp on wg boost 12-13 psi e40 blend. Kinda what I'm leaning towards as well with full e85 is hard to believe without any other fueling aid. For a stock frame setup it even gets harder to believe because the power comes so much sooner. The hpfp shouldn't be able to keep up with that power at low RPM. Something else looks weird in this graph as well. The power doesn't look like a regular stock frame setup, the power is very gradual like like a SC setup. Idk, weird. No worries brotha, he is just stating facts that he knows of and so are the rest of us. It seems plausible because with my filter remove on my top mount no changes to tuning it added 20-30 whp just there. Hopefully he will have his new motor in by NFZ in 2 weeks so we can all play. We will have another VM top mount there to play as well. 6467.84AR on AT tranny, it will be a good comparison between him and Ando 6465 1.00AR on AT tranny.
