    • BMS (Burger Motorsports) sets new quickest and fastest stock turbo N54 records in their JB4 powered 135i - 11.2 ET and 125 mph

      Congratulations to BMS (Burger Tuning / Motorsports) for raising the bar on stock turbo N54 performance yet again. The vehicle used was a E82 135i steptronic with a JB4, down pipes, dual cone intake, CM10 meth setup, FMIC, and race gas. The mile per hour (fastest) record in the 1/4 came on a run of 11.3@125.24. The elapsed time (quickest) record came on a run of 11.259@122.86. The trap speed dropped a bit with the better ET which is not surprising considering it came on a much better 60 foot. These records were set at Famoso Raceway which is a decent track but certainly not the best strip for setting records.

      Congratulations once again to BMS! Slips and video below.

        been debating on summers for a while and i'm pretty sure now i'm getting 275/40/17 NT05Rs rear...still debating on the fronts, don't want that rolling noise
        I can't really hear them with the radio on. I'd say go for it. They are cheap, light, and hold up well. Click here to enlarge

        Listen smarty, you try it in a manual car on street tires lol, also put on a couple lbs lol. Driving the 5.0 today, man it felt good to slam the gears. I chriped the 3-4 Click here to enlarge Car felt like a boat compared to my 135i on stiff coil overs, but the bad boy squats nice bone stock. Felt slow compared to my 135 though, but that feeling will be changed when theres a whine coming from the engine.

        Will do. I dont really know what you have, I am just in the mood for some new mods. Hopefully you have something that will work for me Click here to enlarge. Congratulations on the new car, post pics asap!

        Terry, have you thought of getting RB turbos or something? You would hit 10's no doubt with that extra power.

        We need to keep a stock turbo N54 around for R&D. I sold our N54 335 last year, but maybe I'll pick up another N54 one of these days and then do something else with the N54 135. Not really in a huge hurry to do anything though. Sooner or later there will be a large volume of affordable and well designed turbo upgrade options out, the RBs among those, as well as alternative twin and single turbo setups, and then we'll pick our poison based on which has the highest customer demand and seems the most fun. A single turbo that spools at 4000rpm is going to be absolutely no fun for an auto. Maybe CPE will finish their twin setup one of these days.

        Yeah, I think it can happen too. Would take a little more work. Maybe running sans catback, C16, and another 100# of extreme weight reduction like removing the AC system, airbags, light weight driver seat, etc.
