    its not on you to post results though, is VTT a tuner as well? there's an inherent difference. FFTEC did a great job of hardware, but hardware is useless w/o s/w and thats the shivs domain

    The majority of people here, although quiet, understand the process and just enjoy the updates. Don't worry about the haters.

    Shiv's issues go much deeper than whether his turbo kit delivers ET's or misfires and his general car/tuning knowledge.

    We will get to you after we are done with Shiv. And it is about NOT posting results. Talking about the results, where are those? You should have a couple of APs already.

    The hardware is great? Based on what?
    Looks to me the drivers suck the most though out of the hw/sw/driving combo. Shiv is the only one who drives well out of those people.

    Come on, we're talking about STRAIGHT LINE acceleration here. Yes, it takes a bit more skill to launch a 335i than a GTR, but srsly?? Click here to enlarge

    If that's too difficult for a "driver", than just stick to 60-130 times Click here to enlarge

    What's the point in putting $10k in a car to get 600whp if you can't drive straight or have to "let off in 4th"? Click here to enlarge

    I could imagine the girl getting afraid of the short braking area and letting off in 4th. Shiv did not let off in 4th and got into 10s. That is an example of what I mean by the driver being a factor here.

    Really. 10's, was he using 6 meth nozzles and running DR's with no interior and a hidden fuel bladder too?

    Stop being a sheep.

    I don't read those straight line acceleration threads too much, but I believe he had 4 nozzles and upgraded fuel system. I believe that provides both the octane and fueling that was needed. If you think of it 4 nozzles is A LOT even from one meth pump only, and I'm sure there is no need for any more fuel / octane. We are not talking about 1000's worth of WHPs here.

    I think by now there are enough options to choose from if u want to go single turbo , we got headers , we got flanges , we got turbo's , we have tuners , we have trans upgrade options, etc...
    So for everybody dying to see results , build your own damn single turbo and quit whining like a litlle $#@!.

    Like Shiv said on E90post , it's the girls first time on the track , the brakes don't feel confident with the big slicks , and they were trying to get as much runs without getting kicked off the track , so reaching a 11.1 with letting of in 4th is very respectable.

    Like i said STFU and go do it yourself.

    driver mod is negligible argument. the chick obviously knew what she wanted, probably owned a few higher hp cars as well. i doubt this things is so fast it scared her.. remember, on a track, the safest place there is, you feel like your going slower than you are. so no reason to let off in 4th.

    oh, btw, whats the mph for 4th gear...?

    on a normal 6mt final drive (3.08) 4th starts at 110 and ends at 140mph.

    I've let off in 4th a few times, the ET isn't all that much different, for her to still trap 123mph it's not like she let off just past 1/8th or something. If anything she let off mid-way between 1/8th and 1/4 and had a good ET but it's not like she was going to trap 130+ on that run. Your ET doesn't go up/down much if you're still doing considerable MPH from 1/8th to 1/4 point...if you had wanted to let off in 4th for braking issues or to get under an ET you would just not run past the mid-point much.

    7.2 1/8th isn't a guarantee of a high 10, need 7.0 to 7.1. Fast car obviously with the 1/8th trap but likely not any better than Shiv's car, which then again why should it be? Still a high 10.x, low 11.x 335i, not unlike Terry's RB 135i, or some of the other nitrous/upgraded turbo cars out there.

    NO WAY aynone who gets scared at 140mph will put a big HP single turbo on his/her car.

    Better stick to a Prius then...

    Damn Shiv, if you're looking for excuses please come up with something credible. Or simply accept that 11.1 is pretty much the optimum at the current state of development of the kit and/or the car.
