    Mineral white 1M FBO VVT stage 1 build

    Had the M for a few months now and after getting it remapped at evolve I caught the tuning bug and decided to pursuit some more power. I opted for

    CPE down pipes
    ER charge pipe
    Wagner evo 2 FMIC
    AFE stage 2 intake
    VVT Stage 1
    N55 mids

    Cars booked in on the 2nd of September for all the parts to be installed, then followed by a re tune from evolve.
    Watch this space for plenty of pics and feedback from the install.

    Did you get the billet or cast compressor wheels in your stage 1 turbos?

    What is the benefit of the N55 mid pipes over the stock 1M part?
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    The N55 midpipes delete the secondary cats. They are a cheaper option than say berk or maddad.

    Ok, thanks. I didn't know the N55 only has one cat.
    Sorry for the OT.

    No particular reason apart from my goals power wise. I'd be happy with close to 500bhp. Yes I could of had more power for similar cost with the stage 2's but it would mean more upgrades coping with the power, more things willing to give way.
    Tried posting pics but too big apparently? Need to work out how to resize.

    Not sure you are going to get to 500 whp with stage I turbos. Aren't they basically the same as factory but with some wear improvements?

    Did something happen to your factory pieces? Seems like a tremendous amount of money including instl to spend on something so similar to stock.

    I don't think you'd need to upgrade anything else at all on the 1M going up to stage II from stage I. Already have the suspension and diff to handle the power. Not going to break halfshafts with stage II power levels. Bottom end of motor is more than capable of holding the power. Since stage II runs out of steam at the top just like factory no reason to go higher in the RPMs. So top end will be fine with Stage IIs as well

    Aiming for 500bhp. I need to start using whp as most people on here use this method. And your right in that sense. Engine would probably be near enough under the same stress as stage 2's but with boost turned up which has to be done on the stage 2's more components would be put under stress.

    Looking very nice Ersan. Maybe some performance black grilles will match the wheels.

    Thanks for the comment guys. And yes maybe some black grilles to finish it off. Thought about meth. After FBO might be an option. How are you finding running meth?

    Meth is not expensive to try. You might find once you do that you pick up the habit Click here to enlarge

    Ha ha. When I talk about meth I always raise a few eyebrows at work. Just spoke to imran at evolve and he's looking forward to see what he can do with this set up. Will be pushing these stage 1's to the near limit hopefully.

    Evolve is exactly who you should be talking to.
