    • And the BMW N54 horsepower record officially stands at 725 wheel horsepower - E92 335i with Vargas VTX-R 63 Stage 3 turbo upgrade, Cobb Flash, and PTF Pro Tune

      Well, it seems the back and forth of N54 tuning horsepower records is over... for now. Earlier this month Vargas Turbo Tech and Pro Tuning Freaks (with a Cobb flash) set the N54 hosrepower record at 693 wheel horsepower. That basically obliterated what anyone else had hit on this platform. A competing tuner with a single turbo (the Vargas VTX63 upgrade consists of twin turbos) N54 upgrade kit out of nowhere pulled out suspect numbers that eeked out a few more wheel horsepower.

      This became an ego pissing match of sorts but Vargas and Pro Tuning Freaks went back to the dyno to make some adjustments and managed to surprisingly quickly and easily take the horsepower record right back (and where it rightfully belongs due to the breakthrough being thanks to the Vargas work with the High Pressure Fuel Pump) with a 725 wheel horsepower pull.

      A video is included below along with two graphs. The E92 335i is equipped with a Pro Tuning Freaks pro tuning using the Cobb flash system, 109 octane race gas, meth injection, and of course the Vargas Turbo Technologies VTX-R 63 (GTX2863R) twin turbo upgrade and HPFP upgrade.

      Congratulations to Vargas, PTF, and Cobb for pushing the platform into new territory.

        Do you accept?
        Sure I am down, if you can wait for me to get the production going so I can have the final kit. Sounds fun to me.

        I'm not sure why but I picture shiv showing up with a sweet waxed moustache, a cape, and modding his car to have nail throwers, oil slick dispersers, smoke grenades, etc. etc. Is that normal?

        Tony, do you have an ETA for the finalized kit to be released? I know that you're kinda at Doc Race's mercy to some extent, but I was just wondering how long until we start seeing these on customer cars

        Alright, now it's on Shiv. Will he accept running you head to head? I doubt it.

        Exactly why I expect him to tuck his tail and run away. I may even make an article about it.

        Oh that'd be great. Include the pic and talk some trash if he doesn't respond. Dude went off and made a nazipost thread about it.

        Congrats. Great work being done to further this platform!!! The numbers are very impressive, but I'd like to see how this thing performs. Let's see some numbers on the track and how it stands up against other cars. And on top of it all, how reliable is this setup. But regardless, still a great job.
