    Still too many variables IMO to be making this claim. The VTT S3 clearly has the HP numbers to make a 10 second pass, but nobody has any idea how the car is going to hook. In addition:
    • Will the additional weight & difficulty of launching a 335Xi put it back in the 11s or higher?
      • The only 10 second 335 is Shiv's Single Turbo "Superleggera" that was on Hoosier DRs, a Recaro Race Seat + No Passenger Seat. You're talking about a DD, Full-Street Trim 335xi (3,800 lbs+) and Street Approved Tires

    • Will the Xi drivetrain even last with those power levels & still be able to be DD'd? The low-end TQ generated by a twin setup could easily destroy the OEM TC at these levels (we have no idea until a kit gets tested on a 335Xi)


    The Launch Control on the GTR & Porsche Turbos makes running 10 second passes significantly easier. Both cars have a "measly" 530 BHP, which is significantly less than the the VTT S3, but both cars can easily put down a phenomenal 60'.

    More than likely, I see the 335Xi shattering 60-130 records in DD trim then the RWD counterpart because it'll be able to put down every power. The reason why the UGR TT-Gs can get kills against cars w/ a lot more power is because they're AWD and aren't spinning in every gear.

    the question is if the differential can take the power.

    The OEM "e-Diff" or the Transfer Case? Cause the Transfer Case is usually what I see the AWD guys looking to upgrade.

    And the BMW N54 horsepower record officially stands at 725 wheel horsepower - E92 335i with Vargas VTX-R 63 Stage 3 turbo upgrade, Cobb Flash, and PTF Pro Tune

    Well, it seems the back and forth of N54 tuning horsepower records is over... for now. Earlier this month Vargas Turbo Tech and Pro Tuning Freaks (with a Cobb flash) set the N54 hosrepower record at 693 wheel horsepower. That basically obliterated what anyone else had hit on this platform. A competing tuner with a single turbo (the Vargas VTX63 upgrade consists of twin turbos) N54 upgrade kit out of nowhere pulled out suspect numbers that eeked out a few more wheel horsepower.

    This became an ego pissing match of sorts but Vargas and Pro Tuning Freaks went back to the dyno to make some adjustments and managed to surprisingly quickly and easily take the horsepower record right back (and where it rightfully belongs due to the breakthrough being thanks to the Vargas work with the High Pressure Fuel Pump) with a 725 wheel horsepower pull.

    A video is included below along with two graphs. The E92 335i is equipped with a Pro Tuning Freaks pro tuning using the Cobb flash system, 109 octane race gas, meth injection, and of course the Vargas Turbo Technologies VTX-R 63 (GTX2863R) twin turbo upgrade and HPFP upgrade.

    Congratulations to Vargas, PTF, and Cobb for pushing the platform into new territory.

    I don't think anyone broke a differential yet on the E9x xi cars. The only think I'm aware of that breaks is the worm gear that applies the transfer case clutch force. I'd love to hear from anyone that's seen one of these up close though.

    And there is a trans shop that was supposedly standing by to do upgrades on the t-case. I don't know where that was left but I think he was just waiting on us.

    If the front diff can hold together and the t-case can be upgraded, maybe that gets you into the 10s but I agree there's no way it's going to be a GTR etc without some serious parts redesigning. I'd feel better with a modest t-case upgrade that can hold ~500WHP and just enjoy ripping around mid 11s on the street (maybe low 12s in the rain, lol).

    Sure I am down, if you can wait for me to get the production going so I can have the final kit. Sounds fun to me.

    I'm not sure why but I picture shiv showing up with a sweet waxed moustache, a cape, and modding his car to have nail throwers, oil slick dispersers, smoke grenades, etc. etc. Is that normal?

    Tony, do you have an ETA for the finalized kit to be released? I know that you're kinda at Doc Race's mercy to some extent, but I was just wondering how long until we start seeing these on customer cars

    Alright, now it's on Shiv. Will he accept running you head to head? I doubt it.

    Exactly why I expect him to tuck his tail and run away. I may even make an article about it.
