You are still talking in theory and in "coulda, shoulda, woulda" land.
When you have some seat time in the car - feel free to crucify it. Until then, you are merely spinning conjecture relating a...

You are comparing a regular 3-series release to the flagship of BMW M division again.
It will be treated differently as the S4 is with Audi and the AMG is with Merc.

This is just a hunch on my part, but I doubt the designers of the S55 ignored the shortcomings learned over the years (2006+) from the N54 fuel system.
Keep in mind the 335/N54 upon release was a...
Both Terry and Tony should call a truce. Seriously. It required both of you guys to make this happen.
Let the N55 owners rejoice and look forward to new dynos.
Plenty of room to install the shield if you want. I chose to leave it off since the V1's are now coated.
Can't blame you on the price. I was spoiled with mine.
I got lucky and picked up these V1's used on E46fanatics with the S-pipe for $1700. Had the headers shipped to Swaintech for the White...
Here is some better data with JVT-R headers, and 200 cell cats. And another run with SS v1 headers with 200 cell cats. Same tune ran at 5,800 ft elevation.
Car was falling on its face at 7,000...
Not sure if they do, but you can have them removed for a small fee. Most folks don't care and bolt them on up.
Send a set of V1's over for a White Lightning treatment prior to install and you...
Turn the header upside down and look into the collector.
You will see the defoulers sticking into the exhaust stream where the 2nd oxygen sensor bung connects. AP and Fabspeed included these into...
Get the defoulers out of the exhaust flow and you're golden with that set.
From someone who went from JVT-R's to SS v1's - the V1 headers are indeed fantastic. They change the exhaust note quite a...

Keep the stock rear bar if you are going to go with coilovers at any point.
Any of the front bars by H&R, UUC, or Hotchkis will do the trick up front. They are all very similar with UUC and...
Just so I am sure I understand your original point RE: N54 vs E9XM:
M3 LSD = Fail *will kill you at the track because of your friend's experience*
N54 Open-Diff = Win!? *One leggers for...
Why do you hate an LSD, better brakes and better suspension geometry?
For the poseurs out there, why do you hate the M-badge? :awesome:

Congratulations. Looks like a kick in the pants Steve.
Great products as always - Sal, Imran and the gang.
Some of your best logic to date!
EDIT: Tried to rep but got the proverbial "you must spread reputation around..."

The 137 was a clarification for the top speed according to the list - hence the *edit. I don't have a dog in the fight for your other thread.
Max Psi has a run at +137ish with a slower ET as well?...
10-09-2013, 11:40 PM
Yea, so. Last time I checked MaxPsi didn't make a stock block kit in 2010.
Please reread and get back to me. :)

Traction is better on the newer platform and so is the transmission potential. 135 on the stock motor is nothing to sneeze at rowing a traditional 6MT.

Glad to see it performed Joe.
Hope to see it at the next event on full boost.

All good points. One thing I've noticed in the BMW scene having been a gear-head of all makes/brands my whole life:
BMW owners are comforted at the thought of lightening their wallet. For some...

Where is the T-shirt group buy thread??
Take my money.

The whole community is asking why YOU ( Mike Benvo) had certain protected or proprietary files and your only retort thus far is "yea, but Sal said BLAH BLAH BLAH.... just look at this private...

What did I miss here? Is Benvo climbing out of the hole? Or did he just grab a bigger shovel?

Nice pickup! A bolt on S54 is a kick in the pants.
