    Skirted around? I did not think it needed to be answered, it was already covered above, and is one of the most basic facts in turbocharger theory. The inlets are under vacuum as the compressor wheels draw air into the housing, it is then pressurized, and sent under positive pressure to the charge pipe, then on to the engine. As far as pricing, pricing will be released when the production costs have been determined. This announcement was simply to let people know these are in the works, and you will not have to go through the hassle of relocating things in your engine compartment, to run a nice set of upgraded intakes.

    SCGT hits the nail on the head! Coming soon, once we have sample units we will be testing them in conjunction with various turbo setups. We are still in the early R&D of this product, we won't be posting any pricing information until they are tested and final production costs determined.

    you have a 650 kit, its already cooled.. However, what you should do, is upgrade to a bigger pump, reservoir and lines so that you can have more fluid to keep it cooler for longer

    I don't know but it would probably be wise to take him to the vet. I imagine he could get serious problems if it blocks in his intestines.

    The changes in ride are less noticeable than changing springs, it just feels slightly stiffer. Nothing jarring, or any noises along with it. Nugs is the only one that has reported noise and vibration so far, but he has upgrades subframe bushings and a wavetrac lsd which likely contribute.

    Exactly. its a good starting point, but i believe its why they are the first racing organization to use ET over HP or mph. Now that they have a 1/2 venue scheduled for 2015, things are going to get very exciting on the east coast. Roll racing for shit talking and heads up fun, but also a whole new level of 1/2 mile racing (true 1/2 mile racing, not 3000ft but call it 1/2 mile )

    I watched the SF SEA game rather closely last night....some thoughts. 1. SF so limited offensively right now. One of the slowest teams in the league, they plod at nearly all the skill positions. Boldin a warrior but can't run, Crabtree is a frontrunner, and V. Davis is on milk carton. 2. Expanding on that point, Kaep playing with no anticipation and skittish feet. Still v green eyes and instincts. Routinely fails to work through progressions. Late eyes, too often the backside of the play is ignored. I've been back and forth on him, but right now he's a liability to their team. 3. No coincidence that SEA's success has come with a return to the power run as a foundational piece. It's who they are on offense. WK1 I saw some heavy feet from Lynch - he looks rejuvenated right now. Running with pad level and contact strength. 4. R. Wilson an interesting player. Can make some truly outstanding throws when on the move. Can use his entire body to hold safeties, which speaks to his arm strength. Is average when operating from a traditional pocket. Works down his reads quickly but throws with marginal timing and anticipation. When the play breaks down, his combination of athletic ability and instincts are dangerous as hell. He's about to wing it about 40 yards to the field side in this frame, with his entire body and eyes pointed to the boundary side. That's impossible to defend. 5. If i'm nitpicking, I still worry about SEA ability to score. Those WRs are an easy blank for a talented secondary, they don't get much production from their inline players, and they aren't a very fast offense. If another team gets on top of them quickly, i'm not sure how they respond. 6. I'm not sure how, but KJ Wright and Bobby Wagner are so under-rated. It's criminal. They're both outstanding. Wagner so technically sound playing between the B gaps, and Wright just fantastic with his range and length. Wright should be getting all-pro looks. 7. The first INT to Sherman was an awful throw by Kaep. It's a simple comeback by Lloyd, and while he runs a lazy route, he still gets some clean separation from Sherman at the top of the route. When Kaep first sees it, Sherman's hips are flipped in the wrong direction. There is a 0% chance Sherman can turn and drive down on a pass delivered low and towards the sideline. But he throws it high, late, and wide....Easy work for Sherman. Credit to Sherman overall though, his positioning on vertical passes is extremely good. Natural feel for route progressions and rarely gets fooled.

    http://www.n54tuning.com/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=179 Introducting the first N54Tuning Performance Line Power Combo. Take advantage of this great deal with HUGE discount when you bundle our super popular ER F-Series Catless Downpipes with the best tune on the market. Key Features: Available for the 2012+ BMW 335i (F30 Chassis) N55 Engines! Available for the 2013+ BMW 435i (F32/F33 Chassis) N55 Engines! Available for the 2012+ BMW M135i (F20/F21 Chassis) N55 Engine! Available for the 2013+ BMW M235i N55 Engine! Power Combo Includes; F-Series JB4 ER F-Series Catless Downpipes Downpipe Hardware and Gaskets Optional Addons; BMS USB Cable BMS Flex Fuel Wires The F Series (1,2,3,4 Series) N55 cars all share the same downpipe. When first introduced, the downpipes had a 3.5" v-band flange inlet on the turbocharger side. On 07/13, BMW decided to change the downpipe. This new downpipe featured a 4" v-band flange inlet instead. Thus, the previous downpipes are not compatible with the new ones. Below is the breakdown on which downpipe to chose based on production date: 335i (U.S. Spec) - Up to 07/13 have the old downpipe (BM-EXH007) 3.5" After 07/13 have the new downpipe (BM-EXH012) 4.0" 435i (U.S. Spec) - All 435i have the new downpipe (BM-EXH012) 4.0" M235i (U.S. Spec) - All M235i have the new downpipe (BM-EXH012) 4.0" M135i (European Spec) - Up to 07/13 have the old downpipe (BM-EXH007) 3.5" After 07/13 have the new downpipe (BM-EXH-012) 4.0" IF THE VEHICLE IN QUESTION IS BUILT ON 07/13, IT CAN HAVE EITHER DOWNPIPE. A VIN# CHECK SHOULD VERIFY WHICH DOWNPIPE IT IS. TO BE ABSOLUTELY SURE, A VISUAL INSPECTION NEEDS TO BE DONE. SINCE THE FACTORY PART# ON THE DOWNPIPES ARE DIFFICULT TO SEE, THE BEST WAY TO CHECK IS TO LOOK AT THE PART# ON THE BRACKET HOLDING THE DOWNPIPE. THE OLDER DOWNPIPES HAVE 2 STUDS GOING INTO THE BRACKET AND ATTACHED BY 2 NUTS. THE NEWER DOWNPIPE HAS 1 STUD ON TOP ATTACHED BY A NUT. THE BOTTOM BRACKET IS ATTACHED WITH A BOLT, NOT A NUT.

    I don't think it's being skirted around, it's obvious. Plumbing to the turbo inlet is going to be under vacuum (small amount). After the compressor will be boosted (obviously). Silicone is strong in both applications and used on other platforms successfully. This isn't new. It's new to the N54.

    So I have a question for those with this clutch. Does anyone get a clunk when hard shifting from 3rd to 4th or 4th to 5th? When hard shifting from 2nd to 3rd my tires spin. so I'm thinking this clutch grabs so hard there is no longer any slippage. When in higher gears the tires are less likely to break loose so that's where the driveline thud comes into play? any input would be great!

    A few quick blasts confirmed that Map 6 is no good either. Map 5 seems to work OK though, I'm just going to leave it in that as I cbf at the moment.
