Not sure how much shear the pump axel can take so I would build a bracket that houses a ball bearing and pulley so that the forces from the drive belt do not transmit into the pump itself.

The output of the lpfp would split into both hpfps. Keep the original low pressure sensor. Output flow from the second high pressure pump would be combined with the output of the original. I'm not sure where or how the fuel metering is done. I thought it was on the high pressure side and the solenoid basically changes the amount of fuel that goes back into the inlet of the hpfp. I could be wrong.

I have probably 20 letters laying around from the dealer demanding I go in to get the DCT update software. Um, no. "

Yes mate, I will ask the NJ guys at Protosports if they do dyno's etc...

I do have detailed Durametric stuff but should really get a vbox to do some 20-90/100 mph runs (I cannot really go faster here on the roads I use) "

How do you plan to spin the pump with the belt, secure the pump so its perfectly inline with the rest of the acessories so it doesn't throw belts, just to name a few. Ok so you get it mounted, now you want to push 2500 psi plus into the inlet designed to meter 70-100? Also running a pump inline would multiply pressure, we already know the DME doesn't like big pressure differentials, next the fuel control solenoid uses simple orings to seal itself from low pressure fuel passing to the different chambers, would love to see an O-ring that can hold back 2500+ PSI. Now you have zero control over HPFP. 4000 PSI at all times would make the DME very happy I'm sure, not to mention prob blow out the injectors. Your idea isn't a bad one in theory(except for a few fundemental flaws), but there is that pesky saying again. If it were easy it would be done already.

Edit: To be clear, your idea isn't flawed its actually very right on. Just the gross over simplification is impossible to ignore.

In real world experience I have pulled on N54's runing Cobb Stage 2+ (not disregarding I am DCT) and except for one that was a 135i.

So based on the real world performance results and dyno tests is the reason I said between stage 2+ Aggressive and E30 OTS maps.
Went in with Stage 1+ for a run and then switched to 2+ with no previous driving on it. "

I still like you guys though, I've bought plenty from a Frank, but sometimes it's just not the best deal and I don't play the back and forth price match game.
They don't claim to have the best deal on everything. Nobody has the best deal on everything.

I can tell you my quote was definitely not the website price. The same for people I've referred. "
