    Unhappy NOOOOOoooo RB sadness...E60 news?

    So I emailed Rob Beck about trying to get some info on his turbos for my E60...turns out he doesn't do 5er turbos because they have different compressor housings. This is one of the saddest days of my life...I had decided not to trade in my car and keep it for a while but planned to get the RB turbos...Click here to enlarge 1's and 3's get to have all the fun Click here to enlarge

    Interesting that the 5 has different compressor housings. What about the other turbo upgrade options, would they work with you?

    No clue, haven't had a chance to look into those, I've kind of had blinders on because I really liked the numbers I saw on the N54 turbos compilation. I will have to look around and contact others...we'll see...don't see anyone in the Garage with upgraded Turbos with a 5 so... Click here to enlarge

    You have other options. Unfortunately, seems RB isn't for you. Poke around, would be great to get a 5er with upgraded turbos.

    Would 3 series turbos fit on the 5er? I mean it's one thing if the issue is getting the cores (relatively easy) and another if the 3 series turbos wouldn't fit for some reason

    just ask him if hes willing to make you a set for a one time thing, might cost a little more but his kits are so cheap and so good it will be worth it anyway.

    My main concern is that realoem.com has no clear turbo part #s available for the 5 series that I can find. It likely uses the same turbos, but I have seen some that are not machinable and it concerns me that they belong to the 5 (just a guess though). Also the induction tubes have different part numbers as well, although I don't know the differences it just could be subtle things. I do have some reason to believe the front turbos are the same as it appears all 1,3,5s had once shared the same PN, but I have nothing to work with on the rear. So essentially they maybe able to be upgraded, but I am not certain with what I have to work with right now.

    Glad you clarified this. Very interesting though, someone needs to confirm it.

    Pics of the compressor housings of the turbos should help. Especially where the black plastic induction tubes meet the inlets, and also where the wastegate actuators bolt up. Or anything else you can get.

    No big deal, as long as we eventually get the correct details.

    Helix doesn't seem to have any options available on their website, I did message underground racing but I feel like they will ask a RIDICULOUS price. We'll see how it comes out, UGR is close to where I live so...we'll see...
