    • Quickest and fastest 535i - BimmerBoost member runs 11.2@124.6 with Hexon turbo upgraded N54 E60 535i

      Nice work here by BimmerBoot member @nitemare who will likely be breaking into the 10's shortly and in so doing will be the first 535i in the 10's. For now, he is the quickest and fastest E60 535i N54 with a 1/4 mile run of 11.271 @ 124.59.


      The E60 N54's do not get a lot of love so BimmerBoost wanted this run to get the exposure it deserves. It is pretty much a game of volume as to why the 135i and 335i models get more N54 tuning attention. That does not mean the E60 535i is not capable as this sprint shows:


      What is the mod list? As follows:

      Hexon RR700s / JB4 G5 / Trebila tune / BMS Meth kit / MFactory 3.46 LSD / Fuel-It Stage II / ADE Port Injection / Full E85 / VRSF large Turbo inlets / VRSF kittyless DPs / VTT turbo outlets / custom 3.5" single exhaust / VRSF CP / Tial BOV / Rev9 FMIC / RB PCV fix kit / RaceStar Drag Star 17" & 15" wheels / Custom 15" rear wheel conversion

      The 15 inch drag wheel conversion helps big time with the 60 foot. A 1.627 is a nice launch for an E60.

      What is next? Well, hopefully 10's:

Not going to give all my tricks just yet not until I beat that nitrous E60 M5 on Dragtimes that went 10.57@130. Then I'll unofficially be the fastest E60 in the world. Once everything is all said and done and the transmission upgrade is complete I plan on turning it up to about 31#. End goal is 10.4-10.5@133-135
      Becoming the quickest and fastest overall E60 certainly is a lofty goal but just breaking into the 10's alone would be a great achievement. He will likely get there soon and some TCU tuning might help with that.

        About time we start seeing this kind of performance from E60 N54's!

        Much respect man, props. I'd love to see you get a 10 out of it...

        You should totally crank the boost up on that thing. I was with him doing logs for you one night and it was begging for more boost.

        Yeah man I remember you the fast blue IS. Sorry I forgot your name though? Yeah I got two runs in before being rained out. 151.2 and 150.4
        I was having TMAP issues in 4th and 5th kicking out all boost so the car fell on its face. I installed a 4bar the day before Clayton and it kept screwing up on me and unfortunately I didn't bring my old 3.5bar. It's ok my next 1/2 mile I'll see 160-165 more than likely with all my new stuff I'll be adding next year.

        Outstanding op! Well done.
        I'm considering a muffler delete on my car but as it's a daily driver, not sure if it'll be too loud.
        Wastegates sound horrific at times as well. Turbos going in this month hopefully though. Not got any resonators at the moment. Was going to straight pipe it.

        I felt it was deserved as the 535i doesn't get much love.

        Also, I don't always feature everything instantly. Believe it or not there is a lot behind the scenes that keeps me busy.
