    • 600 whp all wheel drive N54 on 100% E85 - Pure Stage 2 335xi

      High power all wheel drive N54's or 335xi are not too common. The reason being is the torque puts tremendous stress on the drivetrain. This owner is making just over 600 horsepower to all four tires and his solution to keep it together is to simply not launch it.


      That is one way to go about it.

      BimmerBoost requested a higher resolution graph from Pure Turbos. It would be nice to see the torque curve as well. This habit of posting low resolution graphs with little information needs to stop.

      Regardless, a very impressive 335xi.

      600whp on 27-28 psi
      - PureTurbos stage 2
      - Full E85
      - Upgraded PI & stg3 lpfp
      - FBO
      - MHD tuned

        nice to see someone pushing the limits on an xdrive car. Are there any upgrades out there for 3 or 5 series with x drive??

        I agree. If you are going to bother posting dyno numbers then it should be the entire graph with correction factor as well....logs of the run would be nice as well.

        As for the car, this is very interesting as I have been trying to decide whether to go with a single turbo or duals for my xdrive. I would like to be in the 700whp range on a kill tune and around 600whp for DD. I would prefer a dual efr or gtx package but that seems to be off the table a the moment. I also wouldnt mind a single bottom mounted efr or gtx but this too seems to be a no-go. What he/she has pieced together could be a possible route, but without more info its hard to tell.

        That's the only reason I posted it with that graph as it is an xDrive. Wish there was more discussion on the all wheel drive drivetrain.

        I think my old XI may still hold the hybrid twin xi horsepower record?

        Steve & I will be shooting for 630-50 in a few days with my current XI Click here to enlarge

        Nice work Z

        I think other Justin at Twisted tuned one in the mid 600's. I also seem to recall an old fftech that made big numbers for a little while at least. Nice work nonetheless, XI is cool for sure.

        Here's a clean video which shows the graph and pull although no torque:

        Love some high HP xi cars. My buddies 6466 xi was probably right around that level at 26psi.

        In terms of drivetrain upgrades I wouldn't be surprised if retrofitting X5M front drivetrain is possible.

        Even while examining the technical details on the upcoming AWD M5 even that "fancy" AWD system looks to be a similar design, most of the changes are in the DSC module and presumably a few (important) additions in the TC to allow the RWD lockout.

        I did a little bit of research and the X5M uses the same front diff as the regular V8 X5 all the way back to the 2012 E70 so the X5M isn't fitted with anything special but there does appear to be differences in the transfer case between F15 M and non-M models. Someone needs to buy a used X5M front diff and transfer case, open them up and see whats what.

        What'd your old xi hit? I'm at 680awhp & 675awtq. 600+ with hybrids is probably nuts with spool being better than a single

        That'd be me. 680awhp daily driven map on E75 not a dyno queen map or anything like that

        The ATC300 and ATC350/400 work differently and are much different in size. The ATC300 has gear based internals and the 350/400 uses a chain system im not familiar with. I was looking into swapping the ATC350 or 400 into my car. They should mount to the transmissions, but the transmission tunnel is the issue. From the documents I read from bmw, they picked the 300 for the 3/5 series because it was the only one that would work with the transmission tunnel.

        607/618 is what I have the DRFs for. If memory serves me correct, I did make a 620/631 pull as well. Yes the torque downlow was ridiculous. Probably why I shattered 2 front diffs at the track & snapped a front axel. I also wouldn't be shocked if all the rods were bent on my old car, thing started to smoke & drink oil towards the end of its life lol.
