    It's worth it, plus it's fun. I'm able to get the car washed A LOT faster too. MTM Hydro foam cannon with a costco pressure washer, and the CG MIC_493 Chenille wash mit.

    Me now having used the metal TOB for 1.5 years now.... Its really not all that bad. There's a high and a low setting, which setting you should use depends on the make of your car, Euro or American. Best way to tell is to use which ever side of the TOB matches the height of your stock TOB, and so make sure you check its orientation before you pull the stock one out and use the side on the metal TOB that matches it best. I believe I made a write up on exactly that when I did my review of this exact setup, either on this site or the E90 post site.J I'll admit though that I did also replace the pilot bearing didnt require a press but did require a blind hole puller and was a PITA. Moving the pilot bearing shaft from the DMFW to the SMFW is pretty easy and can be done without a press as well.

    It's just an issue with their IWG turbos. They need a higher psi spring to be able to support higher boost, and then you are stuck with a high base psi. If you run a lower spring, the IWG still doesn't flow enough and you get creep. There are no issues with the externally gates EFR's.

    While you make a valid point above, running low boost might be useful to those running boost/load per gear who need to throttle boost down to ~10psi or so in 1st.

    Cleaned up debris that was left all inside. The EGR ports were terrible. I'll be doing an EGR delete and I did not want that garbage still in there. They also checked the heads for levelness and they were of course super level.

    I have no idea. The last I checked they were working out the boost control issues. Apparently due the the Gamma titanium turbine wheel you can't run low boost with the efrs. They trying to control boost under 15psi. Idk why though since nobody going to be spending that kind of money on a turbo just to run low boost like that. However Payam will be testing an EFR 8374 setup on his car so we should have some more data on the subject

    I put opticoat 2.0 on my M3 a while back and wasn't that impressed with it. Currently I use Wolfgang gloss paint sealant covered with Zymol Carbon wax. It lasts for a really long time with the car garaged and I touch up with some Meguiars gold class spray wax after washes. With the color sanded paint it gives a lot of depth to the black.

    16psi at 3k RPM? That's not good at all. My Xona 7865 is 21psi at 3k RPM on 93 oct. And 3.46FD + 6MT isn't doing it any favors.

    Relax, I'm not going to let anyone push you around. You are taking it a bit personally. These types of threads are tough because people demand data and results. This is very much a 'prove it' sort of board. It can feel at times like you're being singled out but you aren't. People are interested in the IC but they want to see details as well. It's all good man, here's some rep.

    We make manifolds for tons of platforms. I think we got a handle on how to make power. �� Comparing an eBay kit to your setup was laughable bro. That's all I said. I should have not said shit about hogging anything out. Childish knee jerk reaction that your beyond and I'm man enough to apologize and say that was dumb and wrong! Regardless we're not worried about dyno numbers, our manifolds will support as far as the turbo that it will fit. Driveability, ease of install, easily upgradeable and we do this all day everyday. You can have your thread back. Let's play nice. I wrote it on my phone and by the time I reread it you already responded. Forum ninja you are!

    Oh I know, its not a fair comparison at all, just poking fun. Lets do keep in mind we made 750WHP on stock motor. Tell them to put E85 in the car, and crank on it. I want to see what it will do.

    Whoah, no need for drama. Sounds like we have some friendly competition out there. Very well -we love to race and if it isn't painfully obvious, Tony in particular loves to compete. The talking part is easy, it's the doing part that gets tricky. We have fun with all parts of it, but our dynos, trap speeds, and track times suggest we can do more than talk. Kirk, hopefully we see you guys at an event soon... Chris

    Oh hey Kirk, looks like John gave you the ok to start talking shit in our threads. That's cool. Maxxing out twins, and hogging housings? These are TDO4HL-19T's, a Factory MHI turbocharger size unmodified, we simply had high flow castings made to take advantage of them, but thanks for letting us know how uniformed you actually are, says a lot about who is your running your social media. Also maxing them out, you mean at 850WHP, sure we will do that. Show us a graph of your single kit making 850WHP with any turbo on it, we will wait. Tick Tock, Tick tock. As for high powered Supras? You mean the literal lags kings of the turbocharged world. Typical 900WHP Surpa, press throttle, wait, wait, wait, wait, ooh I feel something, BOOOM, shift. Rinse, and repeat. Come to think of it, the DR single turbo dyno graphs do look a lot like Surpa graphs, thanks for pointing that out to everyone. As for talking dyno numbers? You mean the 1/2 Mile N54 trap record we hold, how about the MT 1/4 trap record. Wait didn't you guys bring out a DocRace single turbo kit with Direct port NOS set up on it, and ran like 160? Yeah, that happened. Yes Kirk, keep talking bud! Anytime you guys want to come down for a race, we are here. They cancelled SS Oregon this year so we can't come hand you your ass up there. Looks like you will have to come to us. You have a good day now sir!

    LOL your motor is fully built with a badass head running e85 and etc. This is a stock on 93 with meth in the charged pipe. I doubt this thing is even fully tuned prob just slap a jb4 on and running ots BEF. I'm just waiting for proper setup but knowing these guys i'll be on medicare by then lol

    Different strokes for different folks Tony! You keep maxing out your twins and hogging out more housing though, I'm sure they will keep lasting the miles. They are different beasts. Why do you think we have big single Supras? Dyno sheet goes out the window when you get in the driver seat. Little different feelimg in a good single setup.

    Did some digging this the lastest dyno for the steedspeed EFR 8374 setup on the n54. 24 PSI on 93 and meth. Apparently they still working on the boost control because they want to regulate boost under 15psi which I find incredibly stupid. I wouldn't buy a 750whp turbo just to run 12psi with it lol but anywho I think this is the quickest spooling single setup I've seen.

    I'm not implying anything, I asked if someone had a better log please post it as I would like to compare it From my observations up until now it's the best log I seen without using meth on any type of chemical cooling Im open to better suggestions, I would be happy if someone had something better as I would go out and buy it All I said up to this point is, hey guys have a look at this great ic that's available and here are some results You can make your own mind up By the way some people carry on is so childish, don't have to name any names just go back through the thread I'm glad some people think they need to feel superior if that makes them feel good and let them sleep better at night so be it. The whole rep system has been and is abused by a small minority on here All I posted is please stop abusing a particular workshop as it's not a good idea, post hard facts and back it up We have freedom of speech to an extent but if not true it will land you in hot water quickly Even flinchy knows that and I'm glad otherwise he would have not apologised I'll just keep posting my results and you can make up your own minds I won't be rushing out to buy specialist equipment to test this ic I don't feel I need to do that I wonder how many of you guys have got it, it suppose it would be a very little number like maybe 1 ? I know that the major majority was happy and was/is using the mhd or JB4 logs up until now I said what I needed to say and I will post up some more pics later

    I literally LOVE this argument. Yes TQ doesn't matter. Exactly what all the guys running low to mid 160's in the 1/2 mile with their laggy single kits say. Then a full weight E90 with "useless" tq is running 170. Yes Tq Does't matter. That plateau of 700ft/lbs thats a straight line across the graph is totally useless. Keep telling yourself that sir, maybe you can make it true if all the single guys say it enough times...:laughing-rofl:
