    Still no 535 Xdrive options other than AR Designs. Please, please make it happen, Mike!
  2. I am not sure how they diagnosed it. I told them...

    I am not sure how they diagnosed it. I told them I wanted to see the old spark plugs as I was pretty sure some of them would be super rich and carbon fouled due to leaking injectors. SA told me my...

    Digitalism,

    I thought I had a leaky injector. 5 of 6 were leaking as I stated previously. Injectors issues are apparently pretty common so who knows, maybe BMW will step up and take care of it for...

    This is too cool (and I don't even own one of these cars)! Props, VTT! Invisibility at the dealership is a huge bonus as well

    I have to disagree here. Dinan is charging several times what the competition charges for a fraction of the performance. For what they're charging, it should lead the pack in performance as well as...

    With the higher state of tune an NA M engine would possess from the factory over a run of the mill 5.4L, you're probably right (or on any other engine that revs to to stratosphere like a 911 GT3)....

    Not really. I had an Expedition with a 5.4L 230hp NA engine that picked up 30lb-ft torque at the wheels with a custom tune. I would think with the BMW if it were at 425hp NA to start with, could pick...

    20hp, $2499? If I didn't know otherwise, this alone would make me think the S55 is normally aspirated...

    All this talk about the N54's weak link is what I alluded to in this post. Anytime you can turn up the boost and make this kind of power on a stock block, that is damn impressive and tells me BMW...

    I would be down for one of these if VTT chooses to sell them separately.

    I am definitely digging on the very high quality stuff you and some of the other vendors are working on. I have a preference for duals, like the OE N54 configuration but the PTF single could be an...

    This is pretty crazy. That is more than 3x the stock WHP on this motor which is a testament to some pretty kick@ss, stout OE engineering on the part of BMW. Also surprised we have not reached the...

    Vig03,

    I assume you went with AR as they're the only ones I know that will fit the 535xi? Catted or catless? Did you do the install? I am curious to see how much it improves things for you. I have...

    If Dinan had not posted that piggies are an inferior way to tune and then turned right around and released one, I personally would not judge them too harshly.

    The fact that BMS can probably net...

    Things in the N54 world are changing so rapidly--it's cool to check out bimmerboost and see new developments pretty much daily.

    Congrats, Steve and thanks as well!

    The 5 series does some things very well but I understand the need for more speed. I think it really is an apples and oranges comparison though.

    Is your COBB the V2 or V3? If it is a V3, I am...

    I think if you can show that the injector has been replaced previously, the dealer MAY cover it as a goodwill gesture. I have seen this before but it is very much dealer dependent. It might be worth...

    ls3c6,

    I had pretty much the identical symptoms as what you're describing. When I had the dealer change the spark plugs as part of my factory included maintenance, I asked to see the plugs. They...

    When I bought my 2009 535, the factory front rotors were warped. I went with this company and they have worked quite well, no issues.

    Results are about what I would expect with the Gintani running slightly higher boost. I would have a rough time driving that car without getting tickets though as I think I would find myself getting...

    I think Dinan will actually reel in a few uninformed buyers with their $2k piggy simply because of name recognition. If they weren't so greedy as to charge more than 4x their competition, they would...

    Looks slightly rich, about right. Do you have been pics of the center electrodes?

    I6+TT=FTW,

    Do you know what your hp/tq numbers were before your protune?

    Thanks,

    Hi Rich,

    I did not realize there was a group buy going on-would have been the perfect time to jump on this. I am in Ogden, Utah which is about 4700' about sea level sound I know what you're...
