• Another low 11 second Rob Beck turbo upgraded N54, OldBooster runs 11.3@123 in his E82 135i

      Well, the low 11 second runs keep coming from upgraded turbo N54's which means 10's are just around the corner. First, congratulations to OldBooster who did this run on the upgraged turbo only, no nitrous. It is also important to note that this run was done in pretty poor conditions as it was hot out. Track temps were around 110 and humidity was 90+. Mods on the car are a dual CM10 meth setup, JB4 running map 6, drag radials, and of course the Rob Beck upgraded turbos. Will be great to see what happens in cooler weather.

        He's talking about the next gen M3 with the turbo motor.

        Nice run OB, JB + RB turbo's are proving to be a recipe made of pure evil.

        In for info as it would be helpful to the community to see where a weakness in the motor may be.

        With OB I know something broke last week but I haven't heard from him as to what yet. He hasn't had a chance to tear it down and inspect the parts. He's been running a stock short block though. He happened to be logging at the time and everything looked pretty normal for the car. I believe he was off the bottle using a race gas mix and meth when it broke. If it turns out to be a piston I know he has some lower CR forged pistons he's been waiting for. Hopefully he lucks out and its just a head gasket. Either way it really looks like Alpina got it right with the piston swap for higher power levels.

        Terry, do you know what happened to the other customer engine that failed recently?

        Yeah, an intake valve kissed the piston during an accidental burn out box over rev.

        Our trusty PID tuner az335iat. It took a little chip out of the valve relief on the piston but car ran fine, wasn't smoking, etc. Aside from the occasional misfire at idle after. We were both surprised to see the piston chip missing when he took the head off. I suggested the budget fix of just throwing a new valve in it and polishing the piston top a bit but he choose to fix it the right way with a 2nd hand shortblock.

        Just curious but what is an average cost for a short block and where do you source them?

        Let me be the first to thank Terry for being so up front and drama free with the information on the down engines. It is both appreciated and respected

        Terry,the occasional misfire at idle,was it substantial enough to throw a code? how would you best describe the severity of the misfire?

        After the burn out incident the car would misfire at idle and normally throw a misfire fault. A year or two ago we had a customer float an intake valve and explode his intake manifold like a firecracker. So I suppose it could have been worse. Click here to enlarge

        Terry,after restarting the car would it continue with the occasional misfire, was his car a standard transmission,if it was a automatic would you still be able to over rev it?
