    We have 535i downpipes.We have had a few people buy those over the time they were out!The down pipes overall are getting an overhaul and will be back in stock shortly - will be XI and RWD fitment across 1, 3, 5 series.

    Pricing who knows but the timeline we are looking at was already mentioned.

    This looks like a very interesting setup. That rear section looks better flowing than the stock 1M rear section, I'm interested.

    Any updates from CP-E?

    +1 carcars... good luck getting an update. if they do plan further development for this kit they'll definitely update 'us' as we, the forums, are a huge customer bank for them. now why i don't see further development happening? they wont be able to beat the single kits pricing/power. and if the customer wants twins and not a single, he/she already has two very viable options available, with one about to get a major overhaul/upgrade.

    indeed they do have a great line of products, and i respect their company. maybe they just need more time than any other company to push a kit out. i never said they would release 'false' information (maybe it's just the language barrier), just that i don't see an update anytime soon, especially now that the single boys have come to play.

    indeed i am. and i mentioned some of it on my 'hello, i'm back' thread. there is still information i am not allowed to make public, yet, but the larger compressor wheel i can talk about. put it this way, he expects near 600wheel on racegas and low 500's on pump. that may or may not be a far-fetched claim, time will tell. prototype testing is still being done on the asr 1. they are quite thorough.

    well your two statements contradict each other, so i'm hoping you really mean the latter (just kidding). hey i didn't make the claim, i'm just a customer, but we'll see. i would be very surprised if by when he wants to display/sell his new update he has not dyno'd the 1 on the new turbo setup yet.

    i just find it funny that they said they'll upgrade a compressor wheel and get 600wheel out of it that's all..i can tell you right now that won't do anything and compressor wheel is already maxed for the housing..

    Yeah, most of the reason the N54 gets all crappy at high RPM is extreme back-pressure/heat from those tiny exhaust wheels and housings.

    A full twin kit like the CP-E prototype would likely work REALLY well.

    Unless its a twinscroll manifold I'm honestly not interested in upgrading at all...i love seeing this motor handle tons of power and pushing the limits but for I'll personally never go for a typical single...just like i never bit the bullet for nitrous even though it was always tempting due to the easy power adder ability...no rushing things, RBs are honestly way more than plenty on the street for now and its fun tuning them too with Cobb and learning along the way

    ASR needs to adopt a Version naming convention whilst realizing there's a time and a place for Hybrids such as ASR and RBs. Minor changes such as are so often noted are simply not going to amount to much in the grand scheme of things. Biggest concern at this time should be induction tubes. Then maybe compressor housings with new hotside intercooler to turbo pipes. The OEM actuators are great, nothing to do there. The internal gates are junk and need replacement 95% of the time. Water cooling is a plus. Without a new housing the compressor size is limited. After that you can tune away to the most the turbine housings will allow... But don't expect too much, be happy with what they are known for being capable of as it's quite an improvement with a fairly simple install and low cost.

    luckily for them, that's not all of the modification being done. unfortunately for the forums i cannot divulge deeply into each and every piece of the puzzle... yet. patience should be simple in this case as only a handful of people on this forum own a set. and the ones who do probably know the same as i do, as they got the upgrade pitch/purchase from the man himself. now that you mention it, a new compressor housing is also on the burner for an even larger compressor but that is way down the pipeline if ever happening.

    i would tend to agree, but are you honestly expecting an update any time soon? the mani's sure look great and are probably functional... the problem i foresee is not much gain over the stock mani/full upgraded chra combo, so not much sales because of the large price difference. time will tell as always.

    ah rob, you cease to amaze me. and you seem to know a few little facts that i purposely left out, so you have some spies somewhere, or maybe called as a mock customer interested? yes the new design chra's will be water-cooled and oil cooled like the rb set-up and stock chra. the new actuators will be only piston type. that's all the information i can release i'm sorry. time'll go faster than you think and we'll have a new asr dyno for people to bash and call fake/fabricated.

    No spies here. Just common layman concepts that's all. None of which will amount to much as I've said prior. The turbine housing is still a small turbine housing, capable of only so much of flow. Nothing against ASR, in fact if any spies had ever contacted me they'd probably say that I've praised their efforts. I just think they waste much effort in areas that don't really matter (ie. several different styles of wastegate actuators, ever changing compressors, slightly different turbine housing maching strategies etc). It doesn't take a spy for this type of data when I can just read about how it's going to increase power by about 100rwhp to be the supreme Hybrid on BimmerBoost.
