    Hey guys just wanted to announce a few new additions to the line up, as well as a few upcoming projects. First off we are now offering 2000 degree ceramic coating on all of our upgrades regardless of platform. It only comes in gloss black, and is extremely durable. Quite a few people asked for it, and now you can order with any VTT upgrade. We offer outside only, and inside / outside coating. Prices for the N54/5 upgrades are as follows N54 OEM-Stage2+ N55 Stage 2 JB or DBB S55 Stage 2 Price applies to all above: Outside only $240, Inside / Out $325 Note: We can also have your comp covers coated any color you choose, as well as ceramic coated if you are really interested in keeping heat transfer down. Prices vary by turbo, color, application, etc. Email us for more info Next up, we will now be offering a billet compressor wheel option for our OEM replacements. These will be forge billet wheels, with extended tips that will offer a nice bump in flow for guys wanting to keep 100% stock like driving experience as far as spool, and power band, but want a little more up top without going full stage 1. This option will be $175. Our inlet samples came back, all seven of them, and we needed to make changes on a few of them, but overall we are pleased. Every inlet will now fit the PTC, but come with an adapter to run your 3/4" PCV hose there instead of the PTC. The Recirc inlets fit great, and we kept fitting your stock DV's or turbosmart kompact kit (the only one we recommend) to a very simple task. We are also now distributors, for GFB, and have the DV+ for the N55 in stock, as well as distributors for Turbosmart. We have the N54 Kompact DV kit in stock, which are the perfect compliment to out Recirc DV's, they even come with matching silicone recirc hoses for a nice clean look, and quiet operation. We are currently testing some new stock frame modifications that we hope will bring power levels in the 700WHP range. We should have results soon. We also have pictures of our first rough casting of the new 100% new N54 upgrades, these will change everything we know about N54 stock frame upgrades, and will need no core. Details on these will not be released until they are fully tested, with numbers, and ready for release. Last but not least, our dyno is almost installed, and will be operating this weekend for testing, we still have some construction to finish to complete the dyno building etc. Once we do, we will be doing a dyno day BBQ, Dyno contest, and open house. We will keep everyone updated! As Always thanks for the support! Oh these showed up when I was typing this, they will be making their way onto the shop car in the next few days...:naughty:

    Let me start off by giving a big shout out to Terry, Jesse, and the PURE crew! Thank you for all the hard work spent on my car I dropped off my car at PURE two weeks ago to get their N54 stage 2 turbo's and TFT inlet kit installed. I picked up my car last week and DAMN it absolutely rips! I've been driving a FBO N54 for the last 5 years from my 07' base model 335i to my current 2010 E90 M-sport so I'm used to the tons of low end torque and then shifting at 6k . When I did my first pull with my new setup on low boost I was literally shocked at how hard the car pulled to redline. It's a completely different power band than I'm use to and I freakin' love it I've been working with Terry the last few days getting my car dialed in and I had the chance today to head up to Specialty-Z to have the man himself, Terry, dyno tune my car He started out on low boost (20psi lol) and hit low 500whp which I was already smiling about. Terry then switched to map 3 and messed around with additives from 65-75 where he broke 600whp. As you can imagine I was one happy man when I saw this. Once Terry finished dialing in map 3, he switched to map 6 for some custom boost targets up to 28psi. After making 631whp/561wtq we decided that was enough for my car. Terry said with more timing I could've gained 15-20whp but 631hp is more than enough for now. Overall I'm super stoked on the results and couldn't be happier with my PURE turbos, TFT inlets, and BMS tune! 2010 AT E90 M 335i FBO, E50 + 100% Meth Stage 1 LPFP PURE S2 TFT Inlets

    Hi all, I wanted to share the results of one user of my maps. He was basically running my E50 base map with some small tweaks. Yes, it's overly aggressive for the street. Yes, it hits 21psi for a few RPM. I don't want tuning arguments.... Most importantly, I wanted to show that some schmuck on the Internet could build a decent map that hits insane dyno numbers. I'm not a pro tuner and I don't have time to custom tune everyone's car but I hope folks take my maps and run with them in the interest of the community. http://datazap.me/u/antoniogaj/log-1438459311?log=0&data=4-20 Do your research, log often, ask questions and POST YOUR RESULTS ON THE FORUMS, we are still learning a lot about this car and I think it's best that we document the wins and losses along the way.

    spxxx started a thread MHD tuning up to 36psi in N54
    Saw this over on e90post, basically scales the TMAP voltage ($250) but requires a custom tune (I imagine from Ken) to use the feature... Http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1158397 Discuss....

    I just want to throw this out here and see what you guys think. I have a hunch on why the Z4 does better in terms of fuel capacity vs other N54's + how to get more capacity out of our fuel pump. The z4 does not have a lpfp sensor so it doesn't have a direct means to control PWM on the lpfp. So at WOT it probably just runs 100% PWM no matter what. Maybe that's why it does better with E85. If you look at our LPFP pressure in logs it usually bounces around from 65-52 psi. I have a hard time believing this doesn't effect capacity as the HPFP chamber filled at 52psi is going to have less volume then one filled at 70psi. How much I don't know and I don't remember how to do the math.. Maybe someone here can remind me. But we would need to know the size of one of three HPFP chambers. I guess the only real way to test is to disconnect the LP sensor and read it manually to see if A) we get more pressure at WOT B) if it makes a difference to HPFP capacity having the lp pump run at full power. (Potentially if we are getting PWM at WOT) C)if there's less ocsillation which would point to the PWM system not working effectively at these flow rates which are probably 2x-3x stock.

    This information applies to all E36 chassis. i've recently started autocrossing and I want to get better, go faster, improve my times. My current suspension setup is Koni Yellow Sport shocks and strut inserts and H&R Sport Springs. I have the stock sway bars and OEM bushing all around. I'm also running 17" Star Specs. I know that getting camber plates will help in my cornering by giving more surface area of the tire to meet the road. I've found the following brands of cambers: amazon.com/dp/B00RYGNJ38 Fit for: BMW 3 Series (E36) 1991-1998 Europe / BMW 3 Series (E36) 1992-1999 US & Canada; Fit models: 318i, 318is, 318ic, 323i, 323ic, 323is, 325i, 325is, 325ic, 328i, 328is, 328ic, M3; Adjustable Range: +- 3 Degree; Quantity: 1 pair (2 Pieces); Adjustable Timing Mark: Yes; Top Mount: Pillow Ball Top Mount; Color: Orange; Warranty: 1 year warranty for any manufacturing defect; Condition: Brand New Note: These camber plates do not fit OEM stock springs. They fit coilover spring only Super strong and significant improvement for drifting cars, Large range of adjustment while still allowing caster and camber to be adjusted from the top without cutting the strut tower, Maintain proper strut angle at any position by not pre-setting the angle, Minimize noise associated with the urethane bushing maXpeedingrods is also known as Maxspeedingrods Thanks in advance.

    I'm a little upset that if I win these turbos I will most likely end up burning my $20k credit limit on a 1M conversion, port injection, LSD and twin disk. Going to need the supporting mods and the tire... rofl

    Did you reset LTFT and STFT after replacement of the sensor? I would have tried that before replacement too for troubleshooting.
