    The whole flash tune versus Piggy back is an age old argument. Regardless flash tuning on the F8X is no where near being a proper solution so the argument can be saved for another time once / if the ECU is cracked and proper flashing is available. Currently ECUs need to be removed to be flashed with is problematic to say the least. If you want to tune now the PiggyBack, like JB4 is the way to go. IF you want to wait 1-2 years then the decision can be re-visted. The ultimate tune is a piggyback controlling boost and a back end flash controlling other parameters. These hybrid tunes are very popular on the N54 platform. Mike

    The Speed Steed manifolds are top rate. It would be great if they make this one for the BMW. It seem that they are making it for the BW EFR series turbochargers. With a slight change in the head mounting hole placements, it could fit the N54 and N55 as well as the N52. All 3 engines could use the same SS turbo manifold and use a smaller to bigger BW EFR turbos depending on the desired power level. I say build it and I will bolt it to my 328 N52 and use the BW 6255 or 6258 turbo, the little guy. I just need the manifold, BW EFR turbo and a downpipe.

N54 Oil Filter Housings 1 with the Oil Thermostat Housing - $250 shipped 1 without the Oil Thermostat Housing - $145 shipped https://www.dropbox.com/s/x90jb9ursqdl092/20150704_184333.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/tsfzsb8citlb8o4/20150704_184409.jpg?dl=0 Both are for the N54 with the oil cooler option; for the one being sold without the tstat housing, you will either need a block-off plate and aftermarket thermostat (popular race set-up) or the OEM tstat housing - $125-ish at ECS Tuning. 2. N54 OEM Oil Cooler for E83, E90, E92 1 - $220 shipped https://www.dropbox.com/s/pdq3aqiwypitxkl/20150704_190500.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/x0u46e7txtdrbjc/20150704_184530.jpg?dl=0 3.

Originally intended to be used for water, it can also be used to run a dual OEM-type oil cooler set-up. I'm actually running one like this now, I bought two for this project. This is the spare, the other one is on my car. It's not for sale. 4. N45 OEM Oil Cooler Lines - E83 Only 1 Set from a 2011 1M - $150 shipped https://www.dropbox.com/s/hs2eqf3kbq7pwub/20150704_184652.jpg?dl=0 Prices are firm and include shipping, so please don't ask how much shipped to your zip code.

    There are plenty of 328 owners who do not want to sell their car and get a 335. This thread is not about 'you should sell your 328 and buy a 335'. Please don't go there. 328 E9x N52 Supercharger/Turbocharger Kit There have been several companies look at making a Forced Induction Kit for the 328 E9x series. There seems to be a lot of interest in a 6-8 pound, +80-100hp, less than $5000 among 328 owners. There has been- MMW- Gaven had a bracket, Vortech, all the mechanical stuff but couldn't get a tune for it ARMA- Taiwanese, poor quality, SC's exploded, switched to Rotex SC, no recent news Active Autowerks- looked into it but felt there wasn't a big enough market and shelved it RMS RaceMarque- has a bracket for a Vortech SC and feels there is no market for kit VF Engineering- supposedly has a kit ready to release?, this summer? ESS- Has a 5-6 pound kit which is available, Vortech, few kits being tested currently ESS tried a 8 pound upgrade and seemed to be doing well and then something engine related broke. Their kit is non-intercooler. Something about at this power level the injectors and maybe fuel pump were maxed out and were trying to find bigger injectors, adjustable fuel pressure regulator and bigger fuel pump. Due to space constraints, most were using Vortech centrifugal supercharger and NO intercooler. I think that ESS's engine failure was due to charge IATs well over 200-250*F. Tuning the N52 engine with port injection, Valvetronic and Vanos seems to be quite difficult. Any thoughts or ideas? Because it is Valvetronic, there is no intake manifold vacuum and that makes it more difficult. What about Throttle Body Plate injection for fuel and water/meth injection for intercooling?

    Says the person that has ........? I have had mine for four and a half years with no smoke, I know two people that bought after me and they smoke. I think RB should actually do something about it because for people that are not local in the States its a issue and causes major frustration.

    I take it you found what the issue was? It sounded bizarre the last time you described it that I saw.

    Considering SS isn't for 4 months and NFZ for 5 months, you 100% should have your car dialed in by then..

    Such the piece of work, with a master in deception. Considering you have this guy who just posted this below link and multiple reports of backlogged orders at 2+ months (with nothing seeming to be shipped); we'd venture to guess there are some big problems over at good ole "full of quality" VTT. Just wait until you have about 6 years and 600+ sets under your belt big guy. http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?67574-Upgraded-RB-or-Vargas-Turbos-how-long-did-it-take-for-you-to-reiceive-them&p=648409#post648409 Hate doing it to that guy, as we've been told you normally turn away those who post about your poor dealings online… forcing them to otherwise comply to get the repair. Wishing him the best.

    I can understand the frustration here, but I'd say Tony is probably doing everything he can to get these orders filled as fast as possible. You'll be glad you waited though, upgraded stock frames are more than worth the wait, especially when you have inlets to go with them.
