    • Vargas Stage III Turbo upgrade for 335/135 N54 motor hits 572 wheel horsepower on 91 octane pump gas (no meth injection) with Cobb flash

      Well here are some results for the Vargas Stage III upgrade that has caused the N54 forum section to basically be engaged in chaos for the past few months. From accusations of vaporware, to comparison to single turbo upgrades, to countless other arguments the day has come and the Stage III Vargas Turbo upgrade dyno'd on 91 octane with no meth 572 horsepower to the rear wheels. This is with a Cobb flash tuned by BimmerBoost vendor Pro-Tuning Freaks.


      Impressive? Yep, sure is and this seems to also be a 91 octane pump gas only world record for the N54. Now keep in mind this is just the beginning. What will it do with meth? What will do on E85? What will it do with race gas and big boost? What about different turbos? Sky appears to be the limit but for now this kind of performance on pump gas sure is a big boost (hah, get it?) to the N54 scene.

      Congratulations to all involved, Vargas Turbo Tech, Pro-Tuning Freaks, Cobb, and just the N54 community as well. The impossible just became possible. Pictures, video, and dynograph below.

        I would like to add, through all the dyno pulls not a single CEL or Limp. The car did not complain once. It just spit out 572 like it was supposed to on 91.

        Stock LPFP, and Walbro run in parallel. Never once had it hurting for LPF. Things never missed a beat.

        We had a FBO Stage 1 335i on that dyno with 91 + meth made 391WHP / 435 WTQ. There is a dyno baseline. The logistics of how long we had the car and exactly which direction we were going in when we got it made the baseline not happen.

        Whoa..Sick numbers on 91 alone. This stage will definitely see upwards of 600+hp with better fuel.Click here to enlarge

        Great Job!! Click here to enlarge Would love to see OTS 93/100 octane maps & dynos for this. Also some street videos would be fun to see! Click here to enlarge

        i'm pretty sure that qualifies as the TT WHP WR?

        about when did boost come on, and did it hold strong al the way to redline or did it start to taper? it's hard to tell with that graph lol.


        GREAT WORK!! can't wait to see higher octane runs and ridiculous numbers Click here to enlarge
