    I think everyone knows an FBO N54 on stock turbos can't hang with an M3 with a DCT and 625hp. No surprise here.

    All these N54 options "almost" makes me wish my stock ones needed replacement. Not only will this be good for pricing but I think eventually it will ensure vendors offerings are very reliable as well.

    I'm sure you already are aware of this but I do not think your stock turbos are going to live very long at this boost level.

    Do you have inlets, outlets, downpipe and/or an upgraded IC? Not hating...

    I would hope so but looking at it, I'm not so sure. However, certainly not my area of expertise!

    I'm sure downforce won't be an issue with this car. I wonder if or how much this disrupts airflow over the car?

    Hell, that wing is so ugly and overstated, I thought it was aftermarket! Surely, BMW wouldn't put that ugly POS Honduh spoiler on an M car! The shame! It doesn't even come close to matching the lines...

    I saw that, too. Still a great deal. Competition is making this stuff less and less expensive.

    So perhaps I missed something again? Did the downpipes fit or did your mechanic have to do some "clearancing?" I have heard downpipes on the 535xi are a huge PITA but it sounds like they're worth it...

    Great time! I have to know as I have the same car, vrsf downpipes on a 5 series xi?

    Nevermind. I did not realize these existed. They're now on VRSF's site. Awesome!

    I also agree with Twisted Tuning on this statement. IMHO, Not worth the risk to push any turbo beyond its efficiency range for any length of time, period.

    That being said, what is the safe PSI...

    Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done, IMHO.

    That's what I thought but sometimes the 535 gets no love. Thanks!
  15. Slight screw up on my part...Is there a fix?

    My 2009 535 got totaled when an old guy ran a light and t-boned me, I took my cryogenic frozen rotors and pads off the car as they only had 500 miles on them. I forgot to take the cable that...

    I know they're not listed in the announcement but is this compatible with a 535?

    Thanks!

    This is great news. Looking forward to testing, results.

    No offense but I would not run 24 psi on stock turbos and expect them to live very long even with inlets.

    I am sure I would get an itch to turn them up every once in a while but am very interested in close to stock reliability. This seems like the ticket.

    Tony,

    A question I have is, it sounds like these may have a longevity advantage over stock frame turbos simply because they are purpose built and not modified stock housings. So even if they are...

    Perhaps some independent dynos will back up Maximum's results. Until then, like most here, I just don't see these gains as realistic/repeatable.

    It's pretty crazy to me that someone would spend the time and expense to upgrade their turbos and not spend the money for quality motor oil.

    Replacing turbo vacuum lines

    I have over 60K miles on my 2010 535 on the original vacuum lines. My 2009 535 vacuum lines lasted until about 54K miles so I think I'm living on borrowed time and it's time to replace them. I am...
