    • Vishnu Tuning sets a new N54 horsepower record with a dyno of 626 wheel provided by the Vishnu single turbo setup

      The N54 had been stuck in a bit of a rut. There were upgraded turbo options out there but these were relegated to small twins often utilizing the stock housing. A large single turbo simply was necessary to take it to the next level. All the previous attempts at large single turbos had been abandoned. Vishnu showed it is in fact possible and at 22.5 PSI with 94 octane fuel and meth broke the 600 wheel horsepower barrier with a very impressive run hitting 626 although the graph was uncorrected.

      How much further can the Vishnu single turbo kit go? Well, the single turbo is being run on the stock MAP sensor so 22.5 psi appears to be the current limit. Once this is bypassed it will be interesting to see how much further the fuel system and turbo can go. Congratulations for a major development for the platform and for it to finally get the push forward it was needing and deserving. We expect Horsepower Freaks to have a very similar offering based on this same Vishnu tuning solution.

        Congrads to Vishnu, can't wait to see how far this new frontier goes. Any idea on the largest size turbo is possible once they get around the MAP limitations?

        No idea what the largest sized turbo possible is.

        Well, I guess I can hold on to this car a little longer! I really would like to see what this turbo could do on straight pump gas, once everything is all sorted out. I understand there is a 505whp dyno on pump, but I'm assuming there's more to be had as testing progresses.

        A record and development is a record and development. Would you prefer I pull an e90 and pretend certain things don't exist?

        Congratulations to Shiva. N54 is still in the beginning of an endless road, However still great to see this kind of numbers.

        No, I'm glad you covered this Sticky. It deserves to be brought to attention. 600+whp is no joke, even on a DynoJet. Click here to enlarge

        Wow Sticky this must have been painful and difficult for you to post this article here, but shows you are dedicated to the BMW boosting scene! I, for one, am shocked and impressed! The single turbo achievement is impressive too Click here to enlarge

        Yep, stock internals, and it's going to get better as he dials the car in further....verrry promising.

        To early to say single 335 or sc m3, I have a feeling the 335 will be making more power when it's all said and done but we'll see

        It wasn't difficult at all. Not like I set some voodoo curse against the N54 and Shiv.

        Truth being Shiv let's his ego get in the way a bit too much. Set it aside when need be.

        how could the n54 have more potention that the s65 with less displacement and less cylinders?? The s65 may have more challenges to get where it needs to go but once those barriers are broken a balls out s65 should be more powerfull than a balls out n54 right??
