    I have to disagree a little. In the first post, the owner states:

    “I was running VT2-625 with 92mm pulley” and
    “I installed VT2-650 spec crank pulley and 94mm SC pulley which resulted to almost...

    Honestly, I think it is part of development. As I stated, once we crossed 25lbs of boost on the Mustangs, they would break all the time. We tried o-ringed head gaskets, moving away from aluminum...

    The vendor is hurt the most. Most people do not read the posts in detail and tend to side with the poor guy who spent $30-$50k. All they see is an ESS motor broke within 2000 miles.

    When I was...

    I am sorry; but, I see this as a negligent owner. His first motor worked for 50k hard miles. Then it broke. He never states why it broke. All he says is

    “at 67,000 miles the engine decided to...

    Those are very respectable times.

    Just a side note, it is considered in poor taste to double bulb someone (fully stage before they are in the lights). Usually, you do that to piss someone off. ...

    My first set of downpipes were from EFI Logic. Neither one of us realized that BMW had 2 designs for the downpipes for the non-hybrid motor. I needed a slip fit and they sent me a flanged set.

    I...

    Alex,
    I work designing computer systems for the finance industry. I am willing to bet that BMW stores data for when certain parameters are outside of the expected values. That would be a basic...

    Hansel,
    You need to do some reading on the Magnuson-Moss warranty act of 1975. It is the overall law governs warranties in the US. There is a very clear portion that specifically sates that the...

    No dyno numbers. I will get it back to the track and see what the MPH is.

    Maybe I will bring the X5 and the R63 to the Dyno one day for fun.

    I ended up going with catted AR Design downpipes. EFI Logic was not able to deliver in the timeframe I needed. The downpipes that EFI Logic had designed were for a bolt on flange and my X5 has a slip...

    I think Dinan is making the right choice for the customer base they are targeting. I am sure that most shops could make 750 HP with limited changes.

    I think Dinan is focusing on the customer who...

    Just a quick update. I spoke with Tony yesterday and he expects that even with the changes I asked for, he will deliver on the original schedule.

    Tony has been a pleasure to deal with. Both of...

    I am asking him to add a flex section and some brackets that are on the stock DPs. They are not terribly difficult changes; but, I sprung them on Tony in an e-mail at 9:00PM on a Saturday. So it is...

    I sent the downpipes back to EFI Logic today. I have requested some changes to the current design based on the stock down pipes.

    With the changes requested, I am not sure EFI Logic can meet the...

    You learn about a person or company when something goes wrong. We got on the phone, figured out a plan that worked for both of us and we will get it done.

    N63/N63TU: EFI-Logic downpipe update - minor issue

    It turns that in sometime in 2011, they changed from a flange on the downpipes to a slip joint. Well, as you guessed, I got a flanged set and need a slip joint.

    The response from EFI-Logic was...

    N63/N63TU: EFI-Logic downpipes have arrived

    My EFI-Logic downpipes have arrived for my 2012 X5 50i.

    My initial impression is that they are well made. Nice thick flanges, nice welds, well packaged.

    I was happy dealing with EFI-Logic. ...

    Everything you said is true.

    But if it was not an SUV, it could not load up the PW50 and CR50 in the back. It could not be loaded to the roof with Costco shopping, or carry hockey equipment...

    I have to disagree with your belief that fast SUVs are a bad idea. I have 2 kids. That means 95% of the time, I am in the X5. So why not make it as fast and fun as I can. The Mustang is not practical...

    I must say, I am a bit surprised that my little thread got posts from Active Autowerke and Renntech, two companies that I have a lot of respect for.

    Guys, please keep pushing the limits and...

    I've ordered the EFI-Logic downpipes, they should be here in a few days. I hope to install them the weekend of the 18th. I promised the wife no car/motorcycle stuff on Mothers day weekend.

    I am not against dynos. I know they are a great tuning tool. It is just real life, I have a wife and 2 boys 5 and 6. If the choice is a day at the track or a day on the dyno, the track will win. ...

    Dinan has intercoolers for the X5 and they say that they are close to an intake. They have completed the intake for the F10 5 series, so they say they just need to adapt and test it for the X5. ...
