" I think some good points are being made....how can they run a n54 to 600+ hp on stock turbos? Hmmm. If they did swap out turbos to run up the hp, why would they even do this? They would have to make a lot of changes just to make it work.... I call bullshit also
Maybe they estimate the n54 being able to make 600+ but it's only a estimation "
Although we use so much ethanol here on everything we build we should have our own station on site. I currently do not agree with 90% of DI owners to use it, until there is a better solution and REAL flex fuel strategy. With not knowing exactly what Ethanol content you are running it really cannot be tuned properly. The 10% of people I would say go for it are guys who are familiar with using it or people that are very involved with making power with their cars at the expense of anything.
The maintenance required to run ethanol is increased. And as long as you are educated on it and perform correct safety precautions, while keeping your fuel delivery system properly maintained you will never have an issue.
I have not tested all the lines yet on the n54, but most so far are 100%
compatible. We have a nice solution to the upgraded lpfp pump line popping
off however and have tested heavily with ethanol on the n54. Along with the
vargas hpfp and rail. We really need a larger turbo car here to have more "
" I'm going to see how good this s55 is, if its not what i'm expecting, i plan to either pick up a clean e92 m3 in a couple years (after im tired of the 335) or a pcar or some audi product like the rs3, etc....
I don't think you can go wrong with a s65 m3 but it depends on what you want it for. The s55 will likely have some issues in the first year or two (every new car does *rod bearings on 08 s65's) so i wouldn't buy the first year car anyway.... "
