    Just wanted to show off out new improved (closer to OEM Spec) Turbo Flange. This has been shipping for the last few months (Since early summer) but I haven't had a chance to highlight this yet. This new flange design makes install, especially for the average DIY guy much easier. Compared to all the other pipe manufacturers this is the closest to OEM spec there is. The OEM flange is extremely thin. Mike

    Hello, This is one of my first threads over here at BimmerBoost. I had been visiting e90post but I have been frequenting this forum more and more. I hope you all find this of value. I would like to post my review of the Markert Motor Works solution for a proper clutch type limited slip differential for the E9X cars and E8X 135 cars. I have previously driven many applications outfitted with the other gear type differentials and I was never close to satisfied. It just didnt feel like the earlier BMWs I know and love. Afterall, it was the E30s and E36s that got me into this rodeo. I was thinking, why cant my e90 have a similar feel? I thought it was because it was a turbo car, and that I needed a V10 to solve my woes. The lock up was never smooth coming out of corners or a nice slip angle, and they were always seemingly very noisy compared to a proper clutch type diff. Boy was I wrong about turbo vs NA! Friday came around and I knew I would be having my new differential assembly installed that evening. I was very excited. Low and behold, I had a friend drop by with an identical car to mine (2010 LCI sedan, alpine on black 6 speed). He has a wavetrac in his car so I drove it so that I would have a comparison. After the test drive, and I mean test drive ;) I brought the car back and I still was not that thrilled. It was making me nervous about my car and how it would feel after the diff swap. Come 6 o'clock, I get my car back with the new differential installed. I pulled out of the parking lot, and I immediately screamed "I love my car again!!!" (while completely sideways coming out of it smoothly and precisely as a professional driver). I immediately thought, "now no longer need the S85" (although the want is still there). I could not believe the transformation. It was incredible! :happyanim: I then began to call everyone I know with a later model BMW to tell them the news. This thing is BRILLIANT! You MUST get one! So far I have two other buddies get them (both members so I am sure they will chime in). One in a 335i and one in a 135i. Both FBO. Pics!: Install: Obligatory burnout: Lastly: Funny Meme a friend made due to my extreme happiness: But all shenanigans aside (even when not driving like a hoon) you can notice the traction control not having to work as hard. Launches from a stop are now much smoother and thus quicker out of the hole. Exiting corners is the biggest plus, since the lock up is progressive versus On/Off, it is extremely smooth. No more of that craziness coming out of turns (which in my opinion was extremely dangerous). Link to their site: http://www.markertmotorworks.com/#!e9x-e8x-clutch-type-lsd/cjl5 Make sure you all check these things out! Talk to yall soon :thumsup:

    Awesome work Steve! Everything looks awesome, we chose almost the same location to mount our return as you when doing the return style system a while back, I am glad to see I wasn't too far off when doing so...:) At some point I will prob go back to the return set up, I kept everything in place just for that day. Do you recommend leaving the stock lines in place when going return style? I went -6 feed and return when I made the switch, but I wasn't sure it was needed, any feedback on when the stock lines might become restrictive? if there was any question as to who is the king of the N54 LPFP world, they should be laid to rest now....:royalty-crown:

    :think: I guess you are having a hard time reading a graph. Can you take a look at these and please point out where they do not hold power for any period of time where it matters most, keep in mind these were with at tapering boost curve by design, we can easily hold boost flat to redline now as well. So for the first graph we have the Stage 2+ vs the Motiv 750 vs the stock M4, power curve on the hybrids and the single look indentical, the freer flowing single just makes more power, if you could point off the power drop off for me, that would be great. Next graph Stage 2+ against the FFTEC 5862, more power everywhere for the hybrids including more TQ to redline, next graph Stage 2+ against a 6465 rated at 810HP our curve holds exactly the same as the bigger single, we just again cannot match the flow of the bigger turbo, but power does not fall off, it holds perfectly flat. Last graph is the Stage2+ by themselves in 5th gear which would closely resemble load on the road in 4th gear. We have 500WTQ from 3500 to 6500, and 500-650WHP from 4250 to redline which you just said is the only place that matters, I know you do not like us or our products, but when you are going to say something, please at least make it some what legitimate. :handgestures-thumb:

    Haha, if these guys want to make 700 to 1000whp and not blow up their engines on the first few real races they are going to have to pay ,its just the way the game is.

    These figures look a bit low to me. I think Tony has dynoed only 20t w/ clipped turbine wheel, so he does not really know. Stage 2 peaked 550WHP at quite low RPMs so 19t w unclipped turbine wheels doesn't need to flow well up to the rev limiter either for a good bump in power. Remember, Pampena achieved 600+WHP.

    654 replied to a thread Look what the cat dragged in... in N54
    This is my daily driver, not my race car, and I live in a city, so I'm idling more than spending time above 5500. Every upshift will land below 5500 for my 6MT. The first gear that I could theoretically use the 5500-7000RPM range only is the fifth gear, and I have no chance or need to drive to 7000RPM at fifth gear... I believe people don't realize that in most cases they actually use lower revs than what they'd imagine. I don't need 15% more power at high revs. 600WHP will serve me just as well as 700WHP would. I can't imagine what I'd need 700WHP for. However, having all the power needed almost immediately, with minimum lag, all the time across the rev range, is nice.

    Thanks, I guess I just need to see how my stage 2 LPFP fairs and if it doesn't, I'll just HULK it.

    powerful ignition system MSD BK-1100 and BK-3400 . 1. Ignition energy stronger up 170mJ, ignition voltage remains constant at 45000V even at high speeds,engine speed rise faster, more powerful, sharp acceleration, horsepower and torque can be increased by 10% -15%, vehicle performance has been significantly improved. 2. multiple ignition, ignition time is longer and can fully burn the fuel, it can reduce fuel consumption around 8% -10%, a tank of fuel can run more than 50-80 km, while reducing engine carbon deposits,reducing pollution and energy saving effect.

    As most know, Fuel-It! has been working with Vargas Turbo Technologies and MOTIV Motorsports to develop a new product to meet your needs. Now that their products are about to start shipping we would like to officially announce the release of "THE HULK". (shown with optional return) This is no ordinary fueling solution for any ordinary car! Just like the monster lurking under your hood, this beast is just waiting for a chance to shed it's civil demeanor and show you what its capable of. With "THE HULK" installed and restrained, you can resume your normal daily activities. While commuting this dual stage pump's primary is controlled by the DME and the secondary lies dormant. However, the moment you mash the throttle, it's true colors show themselves and the secondary comes to life releasing "THE HULK" within and leaving everyone green with envy. With up to four times the flows of the stock low pressure fuel pump, this assembly can handle whatever you can throw at it.....and then some! A few specs and particulars... Primary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: PWM via the DME E85 certified: Yes Flow: 1.0GPM @ 13.5V Secondary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: User defined E85 certified: Yes Flow: ​2.1GPM @ 13.5V Installation... Stage 3 is installed just like the stock LPFP and the electrical and plumbing connection points are all stock. The primary runs off the stock electrical system and there are no modifications made. The secondary requires the installation of an additional wiring harness. We will be providing the wiring, relay, and fuse assemblies for this installation. It will be up to the user as to how they trigger the secondary. Those running JB4 will be able to utilize the "nitrous trigger". Those running port injection may choose to use their secondary PI controller to trigger the secondary. For those running dual HPFPs or some other configuration, you may choose the optional Hobb's switch to control the secondary via boost. Options... FPR: To assist those customers that will be running an external Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR), we will offer an optional return line connection point and a stock FPR block off kit. The location of the return has been optimized to flow back in to the bucket to be recycled under high demand and is a simple quick release fitting. Hobb's switch: As mentioned we will also have the option to purchase a normally open Hobb's boost controlled switch to control the secondary. You can view these options on our website and we are taking pre-orders that will begin shipping Nov. 3rd. Supply at this time for both domestic and international customers is limited due to the availability of core assemblies. Consequently those orders will ship in the order in which they were received. We appreciate your patience while we build up those inventories and work to meet demand. http://www.fuel-it.biz/e-series-stage-3-lpfp-upgrade-options/
