    Sered replied to a thread E89 Z4 Vargas GC Build thread! in N54
    Another update to catch everything up! I'm not going to remove the subframe, just going to drop it. Being aluminum, it just doesn't weigh very much and I found it being dropped allowed plenty of room on my E90 when doing the oil pan gasket, and now the E89 is no exception. I was worried the electric power steering rack would be a problem, but I've got it tucked out of the way and should have no access issues. The waterpump is now out! I went ahead and pulled the inlet pipes as well. No cutting, bending, or any weird tricks was ever needed. Unbolted the two hex bolts holding them to the block, maneuvered them around a bit, and out they came! Downpipes are next, then all the lines for the turbos! Shaping up to be straight-forward. I'm about 6 hours in total time including 10min breaks every 45-60min due to the heat and going at a very moderate pace (including adult beverages).

    Sered replied to a thread E89 Z4 Vargas GC Build thread! in N54
    So Saturday bright and early, I began working on the car in earnest. Afternoons are extremely hot and humid down here in Melbourne, FL and I've got no ventilation/air moving in my garage. So it usually ends up being 3-4 hours of work in the mornings. First step was to move the car over to where my E90 sits, jacking the car up a bit, and pulling parts! Here I've got the engine covers off, vacuum canisters, solenoids, and heatshields propped up on the motor out of the way. Front coolant pipe was opened to get the coolant out. Oil is also drained! Fan shroud off (a bit more work than my MT E90, but not too bad). Looks like I'll be doing a bit of cleaning! But not too bad at all! You can see here the amount of room in the rear the Z4 engine bay affords. It's quite nice after doing a ST swap on an E90! Side access is also quite nice when the heatshield is removed. And now the engine brace is installed so I can begin dropping the subframe!

    Last thread didn't work out with Google Drive photos past about 30min LOL. So here we go again! Hello all, yes I'm the lucky guy that got a set of GCs for free and I'm here to share my experiences with them with all of you! As you know, the vehicle these turbos are going on is a 2009 Z4 sDrive35i. This model has DCT and the executive ivory leather trim. My woman drives this nearly everyday for work and for a while it was setup with DCIs and a JB4, then had a MHD-based backend flash added. At some point I traded the JB4 for a set of BC coilovers that never made it onto any car as I went with a special buy of Ohlins R&T on my E90 instead. As part of this package, I also bought a set of VTT inlets/outlets since they are properly matched and it's just a very convenient time to install them. So it's now mostly stock with a basic tune via MHD and DCIs. Car has super low miles and has never had any problems like oil leaks, smoke, etc. I've maintained it quite well! So the other day this heavy-ass box showed up. I ended up opening it to figure out what the hell this was all about. Tony and Chris, these things are gorgeous! Can't wait to install them. Install progress is ongoing and I'll be posting an update in just a moment.

    Mercedes is still the fastest car. Presuming both will make it out of turn 1 undamaged, and they are not really allowed to attack each other like before, whoever comes out of turn one will probably win the race. But the interesting bit has been behind nrs 1 and 2. Has been all year. If you only want to see whoever wins, you can stop watching. The close racing is behind that. The battle between Red Bull and Ferrari is absolutely worth watching. And if a Mercedes screws up, it will make the races more exciting.

    Part of being a leader is letting people know you're leading. A web presence is a must for even amateur companies let alone people doing $200k builds.

    The turbos used are complete new housing with complete manifolds swap, they now offer a higher stage 900 hp plus with a reinforced duel clutch, upgraded fuel pumps and new internals, I have the same setup as the one in Russia and its a good daily drive car, my parts for the next stage are on the shelf will have to do it as soon as the guys at the workshop have some time very soon

    I spoke to brisk and they said the socket they use is "extremely thin". Im not sure what extremely thin means in exact measurements but he did say its a tight fit. Im thinking that im simply going to have to grind/sand my thin wall socket even thinner than how it arrives out of the box.

    This is a very impressive 10 second pass from a Volkswagen MKVII Golf R when you take into account this is a hybrid turbo upgrade. As far as VWBoost.com knows, this is the only 10 second MKVII Golf R with a hybrid turbocharger upgrade (OEM turbo housing). TTE (The Turbo Engineers) Germany certainly has a well sorted upgrade for the MKVII Golf R and it shows. It took a hell of a launch to get that 10 second pass as the 1.558 short time shows. Running 10's with only 121 miles per hour of trap speed is highly commendable and highly efficient use of the power. While the turbo is doing the heavy lifting tuning from United Motorsport made this possible.

    Currently running the Brisk QR12LS ~2500 miles and they've been awesome. Minimal on boost corrections vs my averageI bought the QR12LS they sent me 4 of them, and two random plugs that have no part numbers on them, and look nothing alike. They are asking me for parts numbers on the wrong plugs before they send me new ones. The plugs they sent, are blank in a blank box..... Um yeah. Next up, even the right plugs are 5/8" or 16mm hex instead of the 9/16" or 14mm 12 point of the stock plugs. I bought the thinnest wall 5/8" socket on the market, and it still wont fit into the head, what socket are you using to install these? If they can fix all this soon I will run them on the dyno with big boost if not, I will go back to NGK's.

    That kind of sucks if it's that boring with no overtaking. I'll watch it as I missed the Belgian Grand Prix but what's the point of racing with no lead changes?

    I haven't looked too closely but am i reading it right that you guys are dropping the ambient temp for the high cooling mode from 37 C (around 98 degrees) to 27 C? That sounds like a bad idea, wouldn't the car in effect always be in this mode over 80 degrees? Sounds excessive.
