    • Single turbo E92 335i N54 on E85 vs. Alpha 7 Nissan GTR roll on

      The BMW 335i N54 in the video features an unnamed single turbo conversion kit and is running E85. The Nissan GTR is said to have the AMS Alpha 7 upgrade package which is a fairly mild upgrade considering the car is still on the factory turbochargers.


      Furthermore, this GTR is on 91 octane pump fuel. It is hardly bringing its best to this fight.

      The 335i does win and pulls up top but is it really anything to be proud of to just edge a Nissan GTR with bolt ons on pump gas?

      There will be a rematch with the GTR on E85. Whatever happens, it can always get a turbo upgrade and make this race a waste of gas.

      GTR - Alpha 7 package, built trans, on 91 pump.
      335i - Single Turbo, Full bolt ons, and E85.

        Wish they mentioned how much boost the e92 was running.

        The title of this thread says a lot about how much this platform has developed. Win or lose.

        Looks like a set of Ultra 521's. They are cheap garbage, we got a set for our car, no chance we would run those wheels. Even the 5.5 backspacing is poor fit. If you look closely at the video still, you can see the fenders look like they were cut, or at least severely rolled, to try to squeeze those in. If anyone is looking for good fitting 15" rear, just get Welds, we just got a set for a customer, PERFECT fit. 28" slick tucks in there with out rolling or anything. Do it once, do it right.
