    I agree that the fuel is most likely right but would like to know for certain. Additionally, the boost was likely higher than that as someone mentioned up to 28 psi I think?

    You can see those posts in threads here regarding the upped boost and power output. Whether they are accurate or not I do not know as Vishnu didn't take the time to write the specs.

    It took nearly 5 years for the N54 to crack 10s but I'm glad we did! Now if I could only crack 11s lol.

    Listen, I asked for the specs and haven't posted any article or details. So shut up and provide the specs if you are with them.

    I didn't write the car was up to 680, others did. I'm asking for confirmation but there is WAY WAY WAY too little info posted. Shiv had the opportunity when he uploaded the video to include something in the description.

    I don't read e90post and don't care what is posted there. You are on BimmerBoost, look at the url in your browser if you need help.

    You said the car was making 680whp.... Wrong.
    You said the car was running 28psi... Wrong.

    All the info (video/datalogs/pics) has been posted on e90post. Everything. If you want to do a write up on it, why don't you check out that site or ask Shiv in person. He will be at Bimmerfest tomorrow. I'm sure he would love to meet you.

    Wrong, learn how to read. I said I didn't know:

    Secondly, someone else wrote 680 whp and I have been asking for confirmation and clarification:

    Click here to enlarge Originally Posted by ChuckD05

It really could be the wrong final drive choice, however , it gets harder to gain mph after 130 but with 680 he should be able to have atleast a few traps by now at 133-135 and he doesn't (with the power he claims). It's odd.

    You can see that post here: http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...054#post286054


    So instead of telling me I'm wrong learn to read and learn how to properly share details.

    I live in LA, he can come to me if he wants to meet me. I don't support BimmerFest.

    I'm quickly losing interest in doing a write-up as Vishnu does not seem to know how to provide specs. I really don't care to give Shiv attention anyway.

    Epic event, it even looks as the car would make a 9 with nitrous.

    Vishnu Tuning E92 335i with FFTEC single turbo hardware + raised boost finally runs a 10 second 1/4 mile pass, underwhelming?

    Vishnu Tuning finally managed to eek out a 10 second pass in their single turbo E92 335i that they were once touting would be in the 9's. After multiple unsuccessful attempts (with driver errors) from Vishnu owner Shiv Pathak he was able to get a high 10 second slip by raising the boost according to his data log and shifting cleanly. Details are scarce as Vishnu did not provide information on the youtube video upload and there also is no exterior view to show the slip actually correlates to the run shown in the video.

    We will give the benefit of the doubt here but with all secrecy and the multiple attempts to get to this point the performance is simply underwhelming for the time and money investment. The car is said to have run 10.8@131. It recently was dyno'd at 627 wheel horsepower by Insideline so these horses are not translating well to the ground. This single turbo offers considerable lag and the top end pull for the sacrifice simply is not there especially compared to existing solutions such as the Rob Beck twin turbo upgrade which offers far greater spool and performance only a few miles per off through the traps but with far greater driveability.

    The previous record was 11.10@127.21 with 19 psi of boost on the RB turbos. These turbos are a much more affordable option that also currently is available. Vishnu claims 23.5 psi of boost for this 10.8@131 mph run. Is it worth the minor top end benefit for the estimated $8500+ plus install? We do not think so and considering the way Vishnu hyped this the results are very underwhelming. The low end torque sacrifice is not being justified with a large top end gain.

    We wish Vishnu luck in the future but for now this is still an experiment and work in progress that is tough to buy both figuratively and literally. There are more affordable options that work better for daily driven N54 vehicles that offer 97% of the performance in practice (as in not just a dyno queen) with less compromises. Not to mention for users to repeat what Vishnu has done here with their own single turbo it will likely be far more difficult as they will not have the option of risking their engine with higher boost and timing advances simply to try to eek out a tenth to squeeze past what already exists and get into the 10's. It may be a record, but it certainly is not impressive considering where the bar was already set with far less horsepower and much more affordable tuning and hardware options.

    Very well written Sticky, but there should be no doubt this is for real since the handling of the time slip is recorded on video with voice from the operator.

    I didn't see that video but like I said, benefit of the doubt with what was provided and it turned out to be correct.

    Vishnu should have been a little more forthcoming with info but I worked with what I had. I'm not going to go run around other websites for their benefit.

    Congrats on 10's. That video looked pretty badass, dropping the clutch at such high rpm is sickening lol. I still expected to have a higher trap with the hp claims from before. I think this car probably has around 580-600whp at the most.
