You brought this conversation to the level it is. My first post was referencing the quality I products the op posted about. I have direct friends who have been burned for their poor products on the...

i was referring to your knowledge of the bosch/vw fsi hpfp. Not your knowledge of machining or measuring.
APR is not just a HPFP company. They have a multi million dollar facility and the largest...

Contact HPA and call them liars. They are more established and trusted than you. I am no machinist or anything. I just and reiterating what I know from the 2 top dogs in the VW world.

Taken from HPA's site on their HPFP upgrade.
"To achieve this performance, the size of the piston has been increased, and the sleeve to piston fitment is within a .000005 inch tolerance. Each pump...

Laugh all you want. You clearly have zero knowledge of the vw hpfp. The tolerance for the piston clearance on the vw hpfp is .0001. One spec of dust or dirt ruins a pump. Some cases its toast in a...

Search this guy on the Mazda forums. He scammed quite a few people with his piss poor pumps. One of my personal friends had multiple pumps from him fail and had worse fuel pressures than oem.

I would expect if I was bmw and did a press release targeting enthusiasts who want to modify their X5 they would make sure the tires werent on backwards :lol:

Also the reason they did not succeed in the vw fsi world is that the vw hpfp is assembled in a clean room. The only other company that does that is APR. every other option within the fsi fails much...

I would suggest extreme caution when even dealing with these guys. I have 2 friends with ms3's and had major issues with the business in general and pump failures. 2 failures on the same car within a...

Great post OP and thank you for taking the time to test.
Im surprised that this hasn't been done earlier considering the underhood temps of this platform.
I had similar success heat taping...

My current setup I run e85 1 out of 3-4 tanks. If I load his e85 map am I locked into running e85 mix all the time? Or can I do my normal routine of running it every 3-4 tanks?

I'm sure this has been asked. I tried searching but couldn't find my answer.
I am going to be running the backend flash with my jb4. My current setup I run e85 1 out of 3-4 tanks. If I load his...

I was going to run these as my winter setup but decided to stick with 17's. They were used on a 335 as a summer set and never used in the winter. They were well cared for and are in amazing shape for...
This was his exact answer to me. They are supplied multiple turbos and injectors that can safely flow these higher power levels. Bmw does not give them turbo specs. They are testing the engine...
Can you give me anything I can actually reference as a source?
I would prefer to not reveal his name or the company he works for. I wouldn't want him to get into trouble for telling me anything....
He had a meeting with a few of the lead engine designers about the N20 last week. BMW must have felt there was a big enough issue to fly them to the states to see what the failures looked like.
I would be extremely cautious on going beyond stage 2 on the N20 engine. My good friend does FEA and actual engine limit testing for multiple companies. BMW is one of their customers. They are...
