    A Mustang GT making 775 rear wheel horsepower on E85 courtesy of a Procharger at 14 psi is nothing to take lightly. Unless you happen to have an Arrow 9.0 liter stroked Gen V Dodge Viper V10 that also has upgraded heads and an aftermarket camshaft. The Viper is just brutal. It just takes off instantly and that is what you get with 9.0 liters of American muscle. A Procharger just will not offer that same instant throttle response and builds its torque toward redline. Just incredible how quick this naturally aspirated Viper is. The Viper is on NT05R tires and also has American Racing Headers, an underdrive pulley, and a titanium catback exhaust.

    I update a blog-style website for my car. Helps me keep track of things that I've done, when they were done, etc. The latest update is me installing my Precision Raceworks Stage 3+ LPFP and MMP's port injection with BMS PI controller. I know I enjoy reading these types of things from other people with various products, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to share here. I'll be doing a write-up on my MMP Stage 3 turbo experience soon. That one is a little longer. Check it out for yourself: http://my1series.com/2017/07/24/bmw-n54-fuel-upgrade-precision-raceworks-fuel-pump-port-injection-kit/ I've already ordered a VRSF 7.5" race intercooler and colder spark plugs. I'd also like to get Robert's PR ignition coil upgrade kit. Those will be next!

    Many European BimmerBoost members feel slighted as they do not have as many turbocharger options as US members. Well, in comes Lynx to the rescue as they are a European based N54 turbo option operating out of Switzerland. The Lynx turbochargers are available in two options: RS-650 and RS-750. As implied in the name, the 650 supports up to 650 horsepower and 750 up to 750 horsepower. Simple, right? Let's look at the design. The turbochargers feature cast manifolds and housings. The manifold diameter is larger than the hybrid options on the market as is the A/R of the turbine housing. High performance ball bearings are utilized. So what are the compressor wheels? RS-650 utilizes the TD04L-16T and the RT-750 the TD04HL-19T. The air intake is 2.0 inches in diameter compared to 1.75 inche for stock. You will need to upgrade pipes to accommodate the larger diameter. The turbine features 9 blades. Lynx states this makes it lighter than 11 blade setups as well as offering higher theoretical flow. Ok, so what is the pricing? Here you go: To order, go here: http://www.lynx-turbochargers.com/#order Further questions can be answered by Donvittorio on the forum. BimmerBoost looks forward to seeing results from members trying out this option.

    No need for a thread, please, no more... had enough! But yes, for sure, this platform as an overall has gone basically no where in about 6 years now. Dynos aside guys were basically doing then what they are doing today on stock inlets, stock outlets, "classic" upgraded turbos, race gas, no back end flash and on a Jb3, etc etc. Obviously something MUCH more needs to be done and a bad ass twin kit is likely the answer, the problem is (as it would seem) fabricating something that is very well thought out such that it is serviceable and aesthetically pleasing... while making little to no sacrifices in the performance area AND actually completing all of this in some sort of reasonable timeframe. This all could be a tall order but if what is eventually done is up to expectations it could be jigged and offered to those with deep pockets who truly want the best, and if not that is all good as well. We also regularly suggest ST kits as the next best thing, and the good news there is that they are actually fairly affordable and certainly readily available. Rob

    Andrew Luck might miss the entire preseason... not good. He's an awesome QB but if he's still injured going into the regular season and has no time to practice...

    Not a bad idea. There is a new European option I will be detailing shortly. It isn't single though.

    I'm taking a look at your site. I think it's well done. There is a bit of content there. Would you care if I reposted some of it with credit and links?

    You may be underestimating the potential here. That sounds like something very different than the twin options that are available. Let's at least get a thread going discussing this option. If a few guys decide they are interested and want to buy it, how would that hurt?

    If it fit and was easy though the CP-E kit would be out. I mean, I interviewed CP-E about it probably like five years ago at SEMA at this point.

    Yep. So glad I waited for Pure to offer hybrids. Was hesitant to go RB and I would never even consider giving a dollar to VTT even it was guaranteed to cure cancer Tony is such a d bag. I got one if the very first sets of the pure stage 2 from their initial group buy and after ~25000 miles no issues to speak of. As much as Rob sounds like tattle tail I can't blame him for calling VTT on their bullshit. What goes around comes around and Tony deserves every bit of mud thrown his way.

    Based on my experience with the 2c2e code it was an issue with the connection. Maybe you can only extens the wires to a certain length or you have an intermittent connection that comes loose as you drive. I kept my afr gauge on as I drove around and as soon as I saw bank 2 afr have a large variance I knew it threw the code. If you keep driving it will eventually throw a cel.

    We have the new GTX 2867 Gen 2 twin kit/Tial housings and Tial external gates in the works, likely a one off kit as it will be way too expensive for the typical N54 enthusiast who wants it all for nothing. Most have no idea what is really involved, yet think they do. Pretty sure we are right at $6,000 just for all the bits to get started- which includes no fab work, no design labor hours (or trial and error), no jigs built, etc etc. Then not including packaging, merchanting fees, before sales support, post sales support, profits (yes these are needed for a business to survive lol), etc. At the end of the day those who have the skills just do it yourself as opposed to talking about it, then you can understand what it really takes. It is far from easy otherwise there would be more than 1-2 kits available and maybe a small handful of custom kits over the past 10 years of the N54's existence, as packaging constraints are certainly a large struggle. The new GTX Gen 2 kit is likely the best candidate to have a fair shake at a clean fitment, although they are still a bit of a stretch IMO. The BW EFR lineup we would not even consider at their current sizing as they are just too large to have any chance of fitting with any elegance (which does not seem to matter to some).

    They are made to fit into right spaces. Haven't mocked one up but I'm pretty sure it would work. I absolutely agree with you. Them going the route they have is how they can justify the cost of their products even though it's a much more inferior way of doing things.

    Manifolds shouldnt be more than $1k. No brackets, if you need them you arent doing it right. Downpipes $800 Water and oil lines $300. Turbos are $1k/piece according to my old supplier. So that's approx. $3.5-4k all in not to mention the money saved by not needing wastewater or bovs. So sure, I will take that bet all day everyday.

    I am pretty sure that is what the CP-E vaporware kit is. They are using twin GTX3071R Tial turbos. They only been talking about it for like 22.8 years. A member here "has" the kit on his car but hasn't shown anything but pics of it installed. Part of the problem with a modular manifold with standard turbo mounts is lack of space. There is a reason BMW combined the turbo and manifold in one.
