A visit with CP-E at SEMA - Pictures of prototype N54 twin turbo upgrade
BimmerBoost stopped by the CP-E (Custom Performance Engineering) booth at SEMA 2011. What immediately caught our attention was the N54 twin turbo upgrade prototype they had on display. We asked a lot of questions but did not really get any concrete answers. Basically, this is going to go on their shop car. There will be two different turbo options the smaller of which should bolt in and the larger turbos requiring permanent modification to the engine bay / chassis to make them fit. Do not expect these until Summer next year although they were talking maybe even Spring.
How about the tuning? Well, the Standback was suggested for it. As far as fuel to support 700+ horsepower goals there were not really any answers but secondary injection was suggested along with a new HPFP (high pressure fuel pump). We know everyone is going to be following this closely to see what comes of it and we wish CP-E the best with this project which is obviously at very early stages.
The entire product offering is pictured and pictures were taken of all the CP-E BMW products that were on display. This includes the N54 blow off valve kit, N54 downpipes, dual cone intake, N54 FMIC, N55 downpipe, and their 1M exhaust.
