    Do you have plans to do a single turbo in the future?

    Love it. 550WHP-575WHP would be an interesting pull against, say an ESS VT2 or Gintani STG 2+ M3.
    I would run meth to cool IATs anyway, but just curious what the results would be on pump 93-94 alone with an upgraded fuel system.

    That would be best answered by shiv or Terry. My thoughts and hopes always had been getting to a nice flat 450-475rwhp on pump alone. That's a very fun street car. Looks like shiv already got there with pump (460ish rwhp) which I'm floored about. Anymore than that is icing on the cake, but I'm thinking it's gotta be very close to the best we'd see on upgraded stock frame twins and 94/94 octane alone.

    What's 60-130 for 500WHP RB 335i? Isn't ESS VT2 doing sub 7 second?
    Anyhow all these cars super fast Click here to enlarge, we can agree on that. Can't wait to see your testing/results with potentially new fueling Lostmarine

    ESS on 100 shot yes, the rest of the owners have not posted, but similar setups are mid-upper 8.x's

    You guys know this better than I, but I have a customer who messaged me from Asia who was content with a 7.4sec 100km/hr to 200km/hr at 17psi. He says before the RBs he was at 8.4sec. Please translate that for me..?

    It'd think it would be a little bit slower going from 60 - 130, but I have no actual experience running these type of events. I'll defer to someone who has actually done this.

    Is that Kyle's car? If so, he's a dealer of ours in Taiwan. I believe he is very happy with your turbos.

    Yeah man. That is he! Not sure anything about the car, but he does seem very happy. Just said he trimmed a second off his time and was pretty stoked.

    Yep... i think he has a the fastest n54 in Taiwan which, surprisingly, is a huge market. He's running full bolt ons with RB turbos and Procede. RobertatVishnu met up with him not too long ago when he went to Taiwan. Congrats Rob-- you have a killer turbo package.

    I never seen shiv downplay or criticize. Quite the contrary I think we've always seen eye to eye... Before he even knew I'd come thru on anything as well, he knows what's up as do I.
