    I should've noted that the used motors available locally are higher mileage. Plus the additional core charge. I know I'm being quite picky on price, but I'm hoping to find a good deal. I'm pretty tapped for funds at the moment. My turbo upgrade drained my wallet and I didn't budget for a new motor.

    $2k-$3k is pretty cheap for a good motor with under 80k miles. I kept my blown motor and paid $3400 for a healthy motor with 56k miles.

    Was going to the moon necessary? Was eating the entire tube of Pringle's necessary? What about gender neutral bathroom laws? Dropping an A bomb on Japan, twice? Changing Coke zero to Coke zero sugar? We do these things, not because we need to, but because... I lost my train of thought sorry sir.

    Sadly, the motor in my 135i let go. Seems to be a ring or ringland on cylinder #3. For the purpose of getting back on the road quickly, I'd like to buy a used motor to swap in. I need this motor to be in known good-working condition. Needs to fit my manual 2008 135i Compression numbers and/or videos Under 80k miles I have a few local options for $2,000+, but I want to keep my core and ideally spend less than that. Will pickup in Wisconsin, otherwise will need it shipped to commercial address in 54136 zip code. ---------------

    Is increasing supply voltage with either of these better coils really needed though? People already seem able to run crazy gaps on the R8 coils so why go further than necessary?

    Personally I'm all about the GTX or EFR turbos. The tech behind these turbos are incredible. I've had bad luck with Precision in the past and wouldnt touch them again.

    Thanks Sticky, I've read countless threads from 2015 and earlier but its not that applicable now with the new choice of turbos and tuning advances such as PI.

    Thank you Justin. That explains things perfectly for me. I'm more interested in increasing voltage at higher RPMs as that is where i will be making the most power

    I have decided to change over to dark side and go single on my 335i. RBs have been sold so no going back now. I have a fab guy making me a twin scroll manifold when the car ships over to him in November. However I'm really stuck on turbo choice. Goals are 750whp on e40 with a PI manifold. I'm looking for a bit of an all rounder but mainly looking at roll races but may see the 1/4 mile track when its not broken. So far looked at: 6466 BB Gen 2 6766 JB Gen 2 6766 BB Gen 2 Garrett gtx3584rs Gen 2 I can get the Garrett for similar price to the BB Precision turbos due to being in Europe. And the Garrett is rated to 1000hp but can't see it used on many applications due to it being quite a new turbo. Link to Garrett GTX: http://www.atpturbo.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=tp&Product_Code=GRT-TBO-586&Category_Code=GG2 Out of the lot I'm thinking the Garrett will spool the best (keeping the AR the same amongst the turbos) but will it flow up top as well as the two PTEs?

    So reading about it I have no idea what they are doing on the secondary ground to create this AC signal and increase energy. I don't think I'd be too comfortable running this to begin with, and would be extra cautious on a smart coil system or any coil that has a diode on the secondary, etc. What would help spark would be the Okada Plasma Lift, or the KB Boost-A-Spark. These systems will step up supply voltage from 12 up to 20-24 volts on the primary side. That would increase charge speed of the coil (better for high RPM), and significantly increase the secondary voltage since a coil is just a transformer. 14V is getting stepped up to around 40kV, so 20V on the supply side would be a significant voltage increase on the seecondary. If you wanna be about dat gap lyfe, that would be an answer. At 20V you could probably fire a .045" gap if the coil has the energy to sustain a spark after firing and you wouldn't be sacrificing efficiency by adding secondary wraps to get there. CDI's work similar by increasing voltage on the supply end to create crazy high voltage on the secondary. I don't think you'd want to use the boost-a-spark or plasma lift on the OEM BMW coils as they are prone to burning up (so many died on the bench) but on the PR side we got dwell/saturation data at the maximum power supply voltage of like 18V and torture tested them there at 40% duty cycle until we got hungry for lunch. The tables are already set in the flash (conservatively) for supply voltages up to 24V in case anyone uses something like these. It would also benefit the Audi for voltage, but in our testing the Audi already makes a lot of voltage so it would be a little redundant. The Audi with its low resistance primary charges fast at 12v. Stepping it up to 24v may exceed the DME's ability to correctly dwell them and you might damage the coils. At 24v the PR only needs like 1ms which the DME can do, the Audi would probably need half that, not sure if the DME can go that low. Maybe worth testing.

    Nice Jack, want to make a dual 450 setup for myself. Did you actually attach that assembly to the bucket or does it sit freely in the tank?

    It's from usps, we don't have usps so it goes to a another shipping company. I have tracking from usps. Import tax people are trying to contact me to pay tax before it is released. The phone number they have that Andy provided does not work. So they can't call me and They have tried to contact Andy as well. Ill call usps tomorrow

    Had the gearbox out today and it doesn't fit the 1m but fits the 135 perfectly as the input shaft are very different I'm shit out of luck again. Time to invest in an m4 twin plate bmw clutch and test the crap out of it.

    i think this is the biggest miracle in the past few years on the N54 platform - someone finally running the OSG twin plate that JD75/advan teased 4-5 years ago! would be good to know it's torque rating all the same since it's not anything off the shelf or officially an OSG kit for N54 :/

    without MAJOR fabrication, biggest twins for RHD are stock size there's a shop here in aus building a twin.. 6258? EFR setup, or something around that size i think. requires perfect clocking, the front turbo is sorta pointing at the strut from memory. millimeter clearances. no way could you reliably sell a bolt on kit lol

    Some of the parts have arrived in my town. They are trying to contact me but don't have the correct phone number or email.. I can tell by looking at the tracking updates. They have tried to contact me yesterday and today. I have been the the address that Andy sent it to and they haven't received any sort of slip for the package. I don't know which transport company it is with so I can call them. Im going to try and contact usps to try and get it. Thanks Andy.
