    It's definitely speculation, or a educated guess, but we don't know it for sure. It was only a couple months ago that people thought the n54 was done due to fueling....heh thank god for Tony and his hpfp upgrade, now the fun begins.

    Typical slimy statement one has come to expect from you. It would appear Tony is a lot smarter than you are & will not take the poorly done bait. Its to bad you don't have enough class to just congratulate Tony & go back to doing whatever it is that you do.

    Agreed. In my opinion 800whp and 900whp will be pushing it too.

    Regardless, with the VTTS3s you can expect a ~500 RWHP Gain over a Stock Motor/Stock Turbo Baseline without cracking the motor open. All it takes is this turbo kit, some basic bolt-ons (Quality FMIC, DCIs, HPFP/LPFP) & a quality tune from your vendor of choice -- COBB, JB4, GIAC, RENNtech, even PROcede.

    This is true, it's just unfortunate AT guys have to stay with stage 2/RB's

    Someone really needs to come up with a solution. They could make a killing off of it. Can you imagine the $#@! storm of flying parts following a 5th gear failure at 700whp on an AT? Click here to enlarge

    Unfortunately the factory AT can barely hold RB power. It's fine around the street but try to launch it at the track and you'll burn it up rather quickly. Click here to enlarge We definitely need a good built trans option ASAP.

    I've given up hope on a legit AT upgrade by the time stage 3's are ready and had my car returned to stock this weekend so I can trade her in for an MT. Now if I can just find an LCI sedan with sport package and nav, ill be good to go.

    Guys, there won't be a 'huge' market for AT upgrades. Unfortunately. Remember how much money people said the upgraded HPFP inventors would make? Well, take that market and make it smaller and here we are. Back then though, every single car came with a faulty HPFP so you didn't even need to be modified to want one.

    I think the only real way forward with this transmission is if someone fabricates most of the parts on the inside all over and get the mechatronics tuning figured out.

    It's understandable. But, I much prefer the auto for drag racing. Rolling racing is fun and all but not really my cup of tea. Hopefully 517 trans can work it out for us.

    Built 4L80E? You can get six speeds and can be had for the cheap. Probably not the most efficient auto... or the lightest... or the smallest... but it's effective. Mating it and mounting that beast may not be the easiest thing in the world, or even possible.

    What do the S54 guys use for high power?

    lol those things are beastly. Sounds like too much work to fit that. If it were a trailer car I'd TH350 it (dislike the bulk of the 400s) but would be an absolute disaster on the street. This is a BMW. We simply need a stronger factory transmission. Click here to enlarge

    Yeah, I know the AT would be better for the dragstrip, and I hope some day the AT gets figured out. If I ever take my car to the strip, I'll prob get a 2.5+ second 60' but as long as I trap over 130 I'll be happy! Hopefully I can meet up with Hotrod again and use his vbox to get some 1/4 mile times, and 60-130 as well. Even if the 517 trans works on sikh's car for more than 10+ pulls when he gets it back, we still wont know how long it will last. So far if you want big HP, MT is the only reliable option. It was a tough pill to swallow for me, but I didn't feel like spending $5k to upgrade my AT and HOPE it holds...I do like your idea though of buying stage 3's for both the 135 AT and 335 MT Click here to enlarge

    For what it's worth the 6 speed in this car is very nice. I don't know if that makes the pill any easier or not but compared to many cars I've owned that were sticks this one is the least temperamental.

    Plus, nobody ever asks to borrow my car :-)

    I like the 6MT in the 335. It feels much better than the getrag noodle-stick in my M-car.....

    Ok then tell them to crank it up and see if they do it.

    These are just ego pulls at this point. Nobody is going to run this amount of power on a street car daily. If you want to, build the motor.

    You can push stock internals pretty far with a lot of cars for a glory pull but that doesn't mean they will last. The point of fatigue is also due to wear not just an arbitrary number. These motors have let go at less.

    These pulls simply illustrate the power that can be made, not the power that can be made reliably for X amount of time with the stock internals.
