    We finally got around to finishing up the testing our on S55 Stage turbo's, and the results as we expected. We picked up the Stock motor S55 power record, previous it was 728, we made 734WHP, and 729WHP on two different pulls this am. We also managed to make 762WTQ on a more aggressive throttle map. Also if anyone wants to say glory pulls, here are 10 runs all above 700WHP from yesterday and this am. The 734WHP, and 729WHP runs were made on the E30 OTS BM3 map, no special tuning, the problem is the E30 scaler is too low up top, and even with PI adding a ton of fuel, we are just plain out of fuel. Dzenno gave us a map with better E85 scaler, more aggressive throttle, and 2-3 degrees less timing, it picked up the tq down low, and it pulls clean all the way up every run. The E30 OTS map is prob a little aggressive timing wise for these boost levels so we wont run it there, custom maps are always better for these levels. As you can see car is making 500WTQ by around 3300, and 700 by 3800K. This is a solid 500+ RPM better spool than the other turbos you see on the market. A big thanks of course To Dzenno at BM3 for the help, its fun working with him again! Also to Terry, Mike at EOS, and Bell intercoolers for the great intercooler. Not to mention the owner who let us use his car as a test bed! There is one S55 making more power at 745WHP (11WHP more), which is a fully built motor, fully ported head, 9 second race car, and one car making more Power / TQ at 763WHP/776WTQ (14WTQ more) and its running a 100 shot of NOS. Impressive? We think so...:eusa-clap: We will be getting this car to the track, and 1/2 mile events very soon.

    Recently switched my supercharger from ESS VT2-625 to the AA Gen 2 Level 3. Car made around 600whp/400wtq; and ran 11.4 @ 129mph with no launch control and pump gas 94 octane with street tires P4S. Pretty impressed with the switch over to the Rotrex so far and air to air heat exchanger.

    Today I went to a private exotic car quarter mie drag race at a 3,000 foot runway and finally, got to try out my Champion 68mm VTG Turbo Upgrade with race gas (Sunoco GT 260 Plus) and my new rear R888s. Wow! Between the R888s and the Turbo upgrade with race gas the performance was in a complete different universe than on Stage 2+ with stock turbos, race gas and regular summer tires.The car finally hooked every time on launch and accelerated like I have never felt before. There was no timing by but the 1/4 flag my speedo indicated 140 mph -- 10 mph faster than I have ever done on that runway with my car.I had 9 races. I won all of them except against a 1000 plus hp Jeep on high boost that was towed to the event and during the race I lost to him was making a very loud whooshing sound which I thought was supplemental fueling. As the attached videos show the margins of victory were massive. Thank you Tom and Champion!!!Here are the vids:1. *EDIT* Videos are below

    Maybe the factory BMW S63TU turbochargers can be pushed this far but is it really a good thing? To hit a glory pull peak figure like this would require pushing the turbos far out of their efficiency range. The number looks nice on the graph but is this really realistic F10 M5 performance? This is the claimed mod list: F10 M5 on Stock Turbos and No BEF JB4 and BMS chargepipes MSR intakes Akrapovic exhaust Fabworx downpipes Custom meth system installed by TNT Racewerks Tuned by TNT Racewerks MS109E with 3 gallons of e99 M1 Meth Tuners and owners alike need to get out of the habit of posting a cell phone snap of a dyno plot and then claiming some sort of record. Where is the torque curve? What is the correction factor? Where are the boost and air/fuel graphs? Where is a log? How lean is this thing running? If someone wants to claim a world record with this they can go ahead but there does not appear to be anything to be proud of here other than a meaningless glory pull. A quality tuner would never put their name on it.

    An F10 M5 or F13 M6 with an S63TU 4.4 liter V8 twin turbo tune makes for a beast of a car. The thing is, even with a tune an M5 or an M6 is at a disadvantage compared to an McLaren MP4-12C and its 3.8 liter twin turbo M838T V8. Why? For one, the McLaren is just over 1000 pounds lighter. That is a massive weight difference. Secondly, the McLaren has better aerodynamics. The sleek design simply has less surface area. Add in the 8500 rpm redline, tighter gearing, and dual clutch transmission and you can see why the car is tough to beat even in stock form let alone when tuned. The M6 gets a slight jump in the beginning but the MP4-12C quickly passes. It continues to pull and looks to open up a lead of roughly 4-5 car lengths. The MP4-12C is actually a great tuning value on the market right now especially when compared to newer McLaren models.

    Been looking around and can't seem to find any solid aluminum trans mounts, found the engine mounts only. Anyone else have experience with solid mounts on this platform ? I'm open to opinions and suggestions. I already have 335is engine mounts and e46 trans mounts, barely made a difference IMO.

    Sorry in advance if this question is too basic for this forum. Driving 2015 MB c400 with ecu stage1. Using an icarsoft mbII obd2 reader i get a real time maximum absolute manifold pressure of around 60 in Hg (2bar) at WOT. Is my max boost pressure 60in minus 29in (1 bar) or am I running 60 in Hg of boost (i hope not)? 1 bar seems more realistic.

    j_hynson started a thread "RSRECTN" build thread in N54
    As some know I spent a lot of time building/ having built a 335 sedan and it was recently totalled. Build thread for that car: http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?61466-Single-Turbo-Build I picked up a 2008 135i M-sport and am calling it "RSRECTN" (ressurection if you don't get it). Going to swap everything from the 335 to the 135 and if I can get it done in time I'll have the DCT built and put it in Here are some pics of the car. It's not detailed or anything just pictures i have from the dealer and one that I took. Dark blue with shadow trim (i think that's what it's called)

    Not sure what the going rate should be on these at this point. I've had them in the box for a long time. Have never gotten around to installing and wife now wants pop up camper. I have these turbos. I also have new and unused the VTT-N54-INSTL install kit valve. And new VTT-SIL-1 Silicone Intake Kit. I paid $230 for the install kit. Paid $499 for the intake kit. The Stage 2 turbos - these are described on my invoice as Stage 2 Hybrid Turbocharges - Batch 2 and come with upgraded TD04 thrust option and GTX Billet compressor wheel option. Tony took these back and did a pre-emptive leak fix that he said these might need and then sent them back to me. Again I never installed them and they are still in original box and packaging. I paid $3527 for the turbos. So I'd like to entertain offers on these items. I can provide pictures if you wish. If there is a $ amount that can be agreed upon I'd send a PayPal invoice. These would be sent with signature confirmation and tracking. I will also be selling a LSD kit made by Factory - also new and unused - in a separate listing. Luca

    Got my car for sale, so I put the stock coils back on. Had these on the car for around 1000 miles. New Ignition projects ingnition coil set. Which is Okada US dealer. Also included is the plasma ground. I went from a 18th plug gap to 23th with just the coils, & when I added the ground I increased the gap to 25th. So I know they work.$425.00 US for both shipped. Paypal only I am right beside the border, so if allow me a max of 2 weeks to make a trip for shipping. But it will likely be sooner. I can not get pics to upload, Text me if you want some. $425.00 US for both Shipped Text Barry 604-561-5156

    BMW with a major new model often does a concept car that hypes and shows off the design language. Now, this is an early leak so more photos along with higher resolution pictures will come but the first thing to remember is that the real thing will not look like this. They will try to get close though. You get a basic idea of the direction in which they are headed with the 8-Series. Also keep in mind, the 8-Series is expected to replace the 6-Series. Why? Well, apparently the 4-Series keeps moving up in size and the 8 is close enough to the 6 to create redundancy. However BMW works it out do finally expect a real M8.

    Finally got pulled over. I wasn't even trying to speed just driving along and before I knew it the lights were on. Guy said he caught me on radar. So.... what radar detector do I get to prevent this from happening again? Best of the best.

    I purchased an MFactory LSD kit back in April last year and have never installed. I am going to buy a camper for wife and am hoping to sell these to finance. These are what I have - new and unused in original box: MF-TRS-05E92X-3.08 with Helical LSD - cost me $2199.95 + the refundable core fee at $500. Also I got MF-TRS-11E92-E8X/E92X Solid Diff Bushings at $100. I was going to install on my 2009 135i MT. I would entertain offers as I don't know what these are going for now. I'd accept PayPal and would send with signature confirmation and tracking. Luca

    Who doesn't love a diesel flexing its muscles? This red E90 makes 488 whp and 680 wtq as shown by a previous dyno video. In this one though, it rips through the gears and leaves the F80 whimpering. To top it off, there is a nice constant coal rolling victory screen .

    To back up our dyno numbers we asked the customer if we could take the car out for some 60-130 Vbox testing this am. He said no problem. I took the car out to my favorite private test track on my way in to the this am, and It quickly laid down the new record in only 3 tries! That was good enough for us, and I went on my way. The car prob has a 5.7 or so in it it we played around with shift points or found a road more level or with a down slope, but we will let the customer do some more testing. We just wanted to show this car is more than just dyno numbers. So we backed it up with some real world testing! S55 guys have a lot to look forward to from VTT, our cast S55 GC's are well into development, and should be available Q4 2017, or Q1 2018! :D
