    Unfortunately, although it should be the case it isn't but not important.

    One of the intro price orders is for a 1M. We are hoping it fits, but we are installing terrys in a 135 and they should be the same.

    The N54 finally comes into its own - Vargas Turbo Tech Stage 3 N54 (335/135) twin turbocharger upgrade sets new N54 horsepower record with 693 wheel dyno

    Congratulations are in order to Vargas Turbo Tech as well as Cobb tuning and ProTuning Freaks for raising the bar as to what the BMW N54 inline-6 twin turbo motor is capable of. There are two platform records here the first of which it is important to note was achieved without methanol injection. There are certain tuners on the N54 platform that mask their ability to upgrade and control the stock fueling system and any fueling issues are "solved" by dumping in a ton of methanol.

    Well, with no meth and the cars own fuel system (with High Pressure Fuel Pump tweaks courtesy of Vargas Turbo Tech) responsible for all the fueling 673 wheel horsepower was achieved in STD correction on a Dynojet. That is a record for horsepower on the platform without methanol injection and was done with a blend of MS109 fuel and 93 octane.

    Meth injection was then added and the figures rose to 693 wheel horsepower. If more time was available for the parties involved including Josh at Cobb as well as Jake and Dzeeno at ProTuning Freaks the 700 wheel barrier likely would have been crossed. This will happen sooner rather than later now but this is still a major milestone and a new era the N54 is entering. The motor is finally starting to mature and although it is not on a comparable power level yet with the top BMW aftermarket options this is a huge step step forward for a platform that spent considerable time in limbo due to fueling and tuning issues.

    It must be satisfying for all involved especially Vargas Turbo who was doubted by many early on due to being a fresh entrant on the N54 tuning scene with many fanboys blindly following another tuner providing a turbo upgrade. Vargas Turbo Tech, Cobb, and PTF have surprisingly quickly surpassed the results from a competing turbo kit that uses a single turbo setup and have done so without relying on meth injection band-aids. A true fueling upgrade is here as well as a turbo upgrade making some serious power and setting the standard.

    Congratulations and much respect to all the parties involved, dyno graphs and videos are below.

    Speechless on what Tony has achieved in a relatively short time on this platform.

    Congrats to Tony and the guys at PTF, and I'm sure they are not done yet.

    Also can't wait to see what Terry does with this......

    I couldn't agree more!

    Oh and for all you N54 is the New 2J LMFAO you have another 1000whp to go build the head and shortblock and you wont crack 1k the n54 cylinder head sucks dick

    Congrats to VargasTurboTech and ProTuningFreaks. This really is an awesome result, or rather accomplishment. Not only is it the highest whp on the N54 ever, but also a HPFP fix "first". That demands respect!

    It will be very interesting to see how the different turbo solutions for Stage 3 will compare to each other power band wise.
