    Do you have a standalone wide-band for validate the factory 02 readings?

    Even one wideband after the merge would give you an idea of how well they are working, I think the JB4 can log external widebands (I remember there being a future use for the LM1 at some point).

    I don't see how it wouldn't be. I'm sure he could step up the turbo size as the need presents itself. In the end he will get the last laugh because he designed and built it himself. That in itself gives him something that you can't buy, a sense of accomplishment and pride in the results.

    we still haven't even maxed out the normally mounted turbos. Why do a big top mount with what could be more lag when there's still room with rb's, Vargas, and shiv single?
    Don't get me wrong this is cool though

    We have maxed out the stock turbo's and the stock body upgrades. There may be 10-30 hp still hidden somewhere in them but highly doubt it.

    As for Shiv's single, Eleventeen did just that. The only difference is turbo selection and placement. In the end it's still a single turbo. In fact Eleventeen went smaller then most of the single turbo setup which may help the lag in comparison to a turbo pushing 700-900. Oh and he built it himself which again makes a world of difference to me and some since it gives us DIY's a glimmer of hope in achieving similar results.

    I did t realize he went smaller and kudos to him for doing it himself, he's better than me lol. I guess my real question is why to top mount (especially if its smaller)? It seems like more of a headache to move the turbo. I could be wrong .

    It actual makes it a bit easier to place the turbo and turbo maintenance or switching is a snap. Oh and you also get the BLING factor of having the top mount.

    Click here to enlarge FYI he is using a GT3582R turbo which should be capable of 600hp. He could probably step to a GT4088R or something similar to get in the 700+ range.

    Yes, just need to finish installing it. I'm curious to see the affect on AFR from putting the sensors pre-turbo.

    Yep, I will be using JB4 + BMS Flash via Cobb.

    With the current setup, it would be a 30 minute procedure to step up to a GTX3582R, which Garrett claims up to 750 HP in the same exact frame size and similar spool.

    Even Better!!! I'm not sure if you covered this with Terry or not but here goes. Procede seems to use an AEM boost solenoid. I've yet to see where the actual hook up is I.E. direct wiring to procede or wired off of the factory boost solenoid harness.

    Would replacing the factory Vacuum operated solenoid with a boost solenoid allow for control? I'm assuming some boost control maps would probably need some adjustment in the JB4 as well.

    I did a little boost control experimenting using the factory solenoids several months back and it seemed to work a little, but as I continued to increase boost via JB4 it was apparent it wasn't going to work properly. I realized that the OEM solenoids only allow vacuum to flow through, but not positive pressure (must be a check valve built in). I have since bought the solenoid that AEM markets (which is actually made by MAC Valves and costs about $35 under their P/N).

    So maybe cap the vacuum tanks and wire up the positive pressure leads to where the factory one's went. Then use the boost port on the turbo (if there is one) and see what happens??? Obviously start with some low boost settings as you did previously.

    Looking forward to watching your progress.Click here to enlarge

    I started it up last night, no flames. I just have a couple of small things to do and then I can start ripping on it! I'll get some pics of the engine bay. Things look a little different (better) than before. I had to modify the chargepipe to clear the 335i resrvoir, but well worth the extra work.

    Sweet, for $35 no reason to reuse the factory. Email me the info on that. I'll order one and start work on the JB4 control for it.

    Final install pics

    I finally got everything installed and I have been driving it for the past few days. Today I removed the turbo mounted filter and built a real intake for it. With the 335d reservoir and the modified charge pipe, everything fits nicely.

    Good pics. I like what I see! Looks pretty clean but the turbo is awfully close to the plastic cover isn't it?
