New to this forum, new to BMW's, but not new to turbocharged cars or performance.
I've been playing with SRT-4's for almost 10 years now (picked up my first in May 2003). I built my first car up and ran 11.3 at 127 at the local track, all on the stock engine. Then I built the engine and added a BIG turbo and a 250 shot of nitrous (was aiming for 900+ whp) but things got tight and I ended up selling off parts before it was ever fully tuned. Finally I put a mildly built engine in it and an AGP Zeta 3.0 turbo in it and sold it in 2009.
In 2011 I picked up another SRT-4 in pieces and put it back together, putting down just over 400whp as a daily driver.
2 years later I'm selling it and have just picked up my first BMW: a 2009 135i and I've already been researching modifications I want to do.
I do have a few questions, and it looks like this is the place to find out. One of my first questions: is anyone making an aftermarket turbo manifold that will allow me to bolt on an aftermarket T3/T4 turbo (I prefer the T3 flange)? I'd like to find just the manifold as I'm not looking for an entire kit (I have a turbo in mind already), but wouldn't be opposed to a full kit minus the turbo.
Anyway, I'll be searching the forum, trying to find my answers and will try not to post too many newb questions.
