    • Tuned N54 battle: E85 powered Vishnu tuned 335i versus turbo upgraded JB4 tune 335i at the airstrip

      In case anyone was doubting the difference an upgraded turbo setup makes on an N54 here is a video that should change your mind. The camere car belongs to BimmerBoost member Wedge1967 who has been running his mouth just a bit regarding the performance of his stock turbo 335i on E85 with a Vishnu Procede tune. The 335i that pulls away (way away) has RB upgraded twins and a Burger Tuning JB4.


      Wedge1967 claims he was in the wrong gear for this pull being in second instead third gear which is entirely plausible but considering the acceleration of the 335i, it would not have mattered what gear he was in. The upgraded turbo car simply walks away.

        Right! Dillon ran very well for the mods. It's a slippery slope though. You are never quite fast enough and before you know it you're FBO with turbos. Click here to enlarge

        You did blow by us on the freeway Saturday morning I think. Click here to enlarge

        Yea, he does have downpipes at home. He was telling me he's going to install them soon lol, modding game is addicting.
        I was doing a last minute log on the way from the hotel. I just wanted to make sure my fuel was mixed correctly and I got no KR.

        What stage 3's?There is a lot of proving to do before a comparison can be made.When stage 3's are out they should put up better #'s and performance than stage 2 upgrades but to me they will need to be road tested for a while and proven first.When that time comes which im sure it will we'll have to saythey had a good run and thanks to rb for getting the ball rolling.

        i hope stg 3s do break it, might put me back in an N54.

        but what i would say is, "Damn, my RB Turbo/TT N54 World Record stood for 3 years? Thatsnot bad I guess, not many records last that long"
