I also have a few OEM parts that are off the car if anyone needs them (front intake tube, factory airbox, boost solenoids, vacuum canisters, etc) Just PM me.

Posted my RB's and a couple other things for sale.
I also have a few OEM parts that are off the car if anyone needs them...
For Sale: RBs, VK DP's, BMS DCI
Doing a single conversion on my 135i, so I'm selling off what I don't need now that the project has gotten a good start. (link in my sig)
-RB Turbos for 135i - $2500 OBO
Bought them new back in...

Couple of questions, what is this orange wired plug? From what I found on RealOEM its a heater? I'll be removing the rear intake tube, so can i just leave this unplugged or...?

UPDATE: Got a bit of work accomplished last night.
Welding/smoothing the T4 flange

Thats cool. I'll probably just set my goal for ~600whp first and go from there.
07-21-2014, 04:27 PM
600+whp. Between the ball-bearing and twin scroll options, I'm thinking it should spool nicely.
Whats the record for 93 + meth?
07-21-2014, 02:45 PM
I would be open to the idea. I would have to get mine together and working, then work on the stronger manifold and get it up and running before I'd consider making/selling them.

Just ordered the turbo, turbo blanket, wastegates, downpipe/dumptube materials, Mac solenoid, stubby filter, intercooler piping, flanges, v band assemblies, and some other pieces and parts. ...

Not sure why I continue to update this post but here goes.....

Thanks! Hopefully can have the 16g manifold completed this weekend. Then we can start on a jig and get measurements for the downpipe, dump tubes, and intercooler piping so I can order everything else...

Here's some more pics.....

How professional of you, don't you have better things to do? Like screwing your customers over.
Edit: As stated previously, I'll admit that mounting the turbo to the chassis was a bad idea.
07-16-2014, 01:48 PM
You're laughing at me? I'm hurt.
As fun as all this internet arguing is, its getting tiresome. End point. I'm making the first manifold out of 16g 304SS.
Get over it. Ill use the first to make...

You come across as condescending as well. I've already said I would order sch10. Lets not start with the name calling. That, in itself, is childish.
TIL people on the internet get seriously...
07-16-2014, 11:53 AM
Oh darn, I didnt listen to the guy on the internet. Besides, from what I read on N54tech, you should probably be more concerned with your customers than me.
07-16-2014, 11:25 AM
UPDATE: Materials arrived yesterday afternoon. Have decided to make a prototype out of the 16g, then another out of schedule 10 later on. So here's the pics:
07-09-2014, 11:35 AM
Cool. That is useful information. Ill do that instead. Thanks!
07-09-2014, 11:05 AM
Ok, so now 'I'm' saying that I'm not going to listen? When did I say that? I just responded asking what specifically I need to be using... Now you say that posting this thread is pointless, and that...
07-09-2014, 09:49 AM
Ok, not mounting it to the chassis. That makes sense. I wasn't thinking when I said that.
On the materials thing, what do I need to actually get then? 321? Thicker 304? What?
07-09-2014, 01:25 AM
Haha, yea. Previously it was more of a 590whp car, was a close good race but ultimately I edged out on him. You can check the YouTube channel for the vid.
Speaking of bigger turbo, 6266 is in the...

I've raced this CTS-V in the past and won, but this time around he brought a LOT more power to the table. He dyno'd at over 700whp.
Caddy mods: pulleys, ported heads/supercharger, meth,...
07-08-2014, 02:39 PM
This is what I had planned to do. There's some convenient bolt holes left from the removal of the boost canisters / Coolant reservoir that i can use to mount a bracket to, to support the weight of...
07-08-2014, 01:48 PM
Hmm... Well the materials I've ordered are already shipped. Plus, it seems the place I ordered it from doesn't offer 321 stainless. Since it wasn't terribly expensive, Ill give the 16g a try first....

Manifold Materials ordered. Ordered 2 O2 bungs as well.
