    Posted on N54tech Stock units, are around 11.5 lbs. A stage 2+ is a little more, maybe 11.7 lbs. The new units are 13.8lbs each. So about 2 lbs each more than a stock hybrid unit. Total weight gain about 4lbs. Not bad

    Oh yea I can see it now... "I wonder if I try to run a 16:1 lambda under WOT at 6k RPM and 15 deg of timing and 40 psi so I can get good MPG while making a ton of power!" BOOM.

    BostonBeemah, The designs of the PI kit will be very comprehensive and as with any product will have some constraints to deal with but we are trying to minimize their impact on performance and keep costs manageable. Ultimately when released the end users will have the information to make informed decisions with and this also drives our design flow. We do hope to separate ourselves from the pack with the next wave of product releases. Thanks! Chris

    Looks good, D. Dynos read differently all over and like you said, the delta is what matters. Looking forward to seeing some timeslips from you when the weather warms up outside!

    No updates on this yet. I need to finish evaluating independently, but weather here hasn't been cooperating. Will update when all is ready.

    Well I am running the stealths and I previously ran regular RBS. The dyno was done two weeks ago. All the data is from the same Dyno and running the same PSI so as to compare apples to apples. I know everyone that post dynos on these forums seem to post way higher numbers than I do for some reason but I have a delta that shows a hefty increase and that is all that matters to me. The 534hp 517 tq was my previous dyno on regular RBs that produced my 10.9 130 run at the track. The other two is the delta I have from the new turbos, so take what you want from it. I had timing drops in cylinder 4 because I am still on some old plugs so i have new ones coming and coils too. Terry believes that will fix the issue and get me another 10-15hp but here is my current data. The 606 was the last flash setup we decided to stay with, the power band is really nice for what is produced it also did a two other 608 pulls. As for the track its coming just need weather to cooperate, the car is stupid strong and feels totally different from what i had previously and I am really concerned about dew or a patch of cold track and getting out of shape on a run. Terry helped me a ton with the dyno, I can not say how much he does for people running the JB4. He truly goes more than out of his way to assist his customers. Again take what you want from this and the numbers. I had probably 7-8 runs but I didn't want it to look muddled with lots of lines so just had these two and my previous best dyno mark on regular RBs emailed from the dyno shop.

    _ink, Both products utilize a single Walbro 450lph pump so essentially should be capable of the same flow rating from that perspective. I have never seen a fuel-it product in person so I am not sure what other aspects between the two would account for any flow advantages. The cost for fueling upgrades was what drove the efforts behind the FPM-1 DIY kit development. When we set out to make a more affordable solution using off the shelf parts, it became clear it wasn't going to be feasible to accomplish and have an upgrade satisfied us. At that point I committed to design a setup from the ground up without the constraints of existing components and with a simple cost effective design that would perform as well as it could without getting to complex or expensive. As simple of a design as it is, it really boils down to three points of flow. 1- The venturi leak (a necessary evil) 2- Pump outlet angle (90 is not ideal but again cost, space and venturi feed requirements drove this decision) 3- Outlet diameter (the outlet diameter, was designed to be as large as possible and still fit the factory tank quick connect fitting. The wall thickness of the stainless steel male fitting was made just thick enough to avoid distortion and maintain a reliable seal while reducing flow restriction as much as possible.) From a quick look at the outlets of both products I do see a significant difference in the outlet diameter with ours being much larger. I'm sure this helps flow but how much I don't have an answer for. Ultimately I would say they are probably very close in flow and any difference would probably be small enough not to be a deciding factor. If you are needing more flow and need to upgrade immediately, the only option is their stage 3 twin pump setup and I would much rather lose a sale than see someone hurt their motor by trying to squeeze too much from a single setup, its simply not worth it. That said, If you have time and aren't running on the ragged edge, our next product release will certainly cover all of your fueling requirements and then some and we would graciously welcome new customers to Boost Concepts. Thanks, Chris

    Not sure who neg repped me either, but I figured it was going to happen. Like you said, it can happen to any company and it have. You make nothing but quality parts and I've seen nothing but positive reviews so I was confident that everything would get resolve. Glad it made it in at the right time. Once again, thanks for all the help! I'll post up a build thread sometime this weekend.

    So can I put them on by hand, will they "reset" once they're in the cyl. Or are you saying I need to buy the $200 BMW tool? (So they don't stretch) Most people don't seem too worried about it.

    There were 4,110 LCI E61s (535xi) imported to North America so after considering 10% when to Canada eh? That leaves ~3,700 for the US. There were only 378 manual LCI E61s imported to NA, so let's say ~340 in existence in the United States. Soon to be +1! If you want some more stats check this out: http://5series.net/forums/e61-touring-discussion-4/statistics-manual-e61s-142515/ Thanks guys! I had a misfire show up in cylinder 5, ironically it first happened when I was running a 991 GT3 on the way to Cars & Coffee in Aliso Viejo (we were neck and neck). Coils are brand new Delphis, plugs are low mileage NGK 5992s, Cyl 5 on the left Cyl 6 on the right. Interestingly I swapped the plugs and coils and the misfire is still on cyl 5, I have not checked the injector yet but it is a -12 with maybe 1,000 miles on it so it SHOULD be fine. :shrug Some more goodies for the 6MT swap arrived, a big thank you to the companies who are contributing to this build.

    I have a family member who has a smoking trailer he brings to events, shows, fairs etc. He's won some competitions and took classes etc. He is REALLY into it. He got me into it hence why I bought my 1st one. I worked with him at a show last year and helped him make his beans. His recipe starts with off the shelf bush's original baked beans then adds in all the other goodies like some rub, onions, burnt ends and other old smoked bits etc. The reason I mention it is his beans were fantastic and he just started with off the shelf cans, granted they were the huge cans you get at BJs/Costco. I wouldn't mind making my own beans from scratch(rehydrating them) but it's so easy to just use off the shelf and then add to them. I'm pissed it's going to be -8 out tomorrow and Sunday as I really want to smoke again. It's just too fucking cold for me.

    Its an incredible platform. Fueling for ethanol mixes isnt really sorted out yet it seems, but that may change sometime soon lol..... Joes car runs incredibly well and I have seen him pull away from many very fast vehicles (new viper, 600hp turbo s2k, supras, ect).....and to think, hes just got some bolt ons and a set of r888s lol

    I like that idea - I usually sit them next to each other. And im a big fan of doctoring up "Grillin' Beans". They are darn good to start with (I usually do the sweet mesquite ones), but then I'll add BBQ sauce, bacon, some burnt ends if I have left overs, etc. -Rich

    What everyone said above. Just buy it you will not regret it. They sell them at the home depots around here or order all your stuff online. I like my igrill2 for temp monitoring. depending on the size of your location you may want something that runs on wifi vs. Bluetooth. I cannot recommenced enough to smoke beans & ribs together. Beans on the bottom, ribs on the top, all the drippings go into the beans. so fucking amazing.
