    I tried to brake boost it once, I wasn't holding the brake hard enough and at 5 psi it broke the tires loose. I'm driving it pretty easy right now.

    Would love to hear another exhaust clip revving it a bit more agressively when it's warmed up if possible. One of the exhaust behind and one also of the spool in the engine bay while revving

    Badass man, people with n55 have a great upgrade headed their way. That turbo will be a huge difference, love that sound.

    Looks like the turbo upgrade is installed on the 135i. This upgrade will also fit the F30 335i, correct?

    It's an 335i. Isn't it? Are these DCT paddles retrofitted or is it a DCT? Looks like a normal automatic in the Video (orange dot) but I'm not sure.

    We have numerous N55 BW turbofold cores that we have no intention of using. Anyone can contact me if interested in any.

    Upgrade looks great Tony, congrats for getting done. Very curious to see what's to come from here.

    Hi Rob.
    Is this the complete core for which I normally have to pay a core-charge for if I don't send it in?
    I would be happy to take one if it is what I think :-) .

    Awesome progress and update Tony...you don't know how long I've been waiting to hear that puppy roar.

    You mention 6 weeks out, I'll check your website but I'm not seeing a price anywhere. Do you have kit pricing yet and if so how much?

    Omg, nice work Tony! iuhutch and I both live in Minneapolis and have been waiting for a replacement turbo upgrade for a while now. Thrilled to see what's to come of this. What type of gains are expected with guys like us that are fully bolt on and ready for an upgraded turbo like yours?

    If you can upload any other videos, I'm sure everyone would LOVE to see them and hear that wickedly mean turbo spool. Sounds so aggressive I'm getting goosebumps.

    Now where did my wallet go. I know there's a credit card in there somewhere Click here to enlarge

    Nice work!

    Glad you found it on the site. We just picked up 6 more cores, will prob have more soon. It's possible it will be quicker than 6 weeks it all depends on the machine shop. Once we get the housings we can ship these in 1 day as we don't have to fully build the CHRA. Everyone should look out, there might be a Black Friday N55 sale in the near future...Click here to enlarge

    In case anyone missed them previously, here are the wheel specs.

    I also put together a comparison to stock and the stage 1 turbo.

    Compressor:

    Stock Compressor: Inducer - 45.8mm, Exducer - 62mm (65.3mm at extended tip)

    PURE Compressor Wheel: Inducer - 49.5mm, Exducer - 67mm (72.5mm at extended tip)

    Vargas Stage 2 compressor wheel: Inducer - 57mm, Exducer 76mm (78.5mm at extended tip)


    Turbine:

    Stock turbine: Inducer - 53mm, Exducer 47mm

    Vargas Stage 2 Turbine wheel: Inducer -60mm, Exducer - 55mm

    Comparison results:

    Vargas Stage 2 Compressor:
    Inducer - 11.2mm bigger than stock, 7.5mm bigger than stage 1
    Exducer - 14mm Bigger than stock, 9mm bigger than Stage 1

    Vargas Stage 2 Turbine:
    Inducer - 7mm bigger than stock and stage 1, Exducer - 8mm bigger than stock and stage 1.

    Also keep in mind, at 400 WHP the stock turbo is basically completely maxed out. For comparison sake Garrett rates their 53mm turbine wheel (same size as the stock turbine with their cast 60mm compressor at only 290 BHP. You jump up to the 53.85 turbine and the GTX wheels and you have the GTX2867 which has a bigger turbine than the stock unit and a similar compressor wheel to the stage 1 and you get a BHP rating of 475, that is in native garrett housings which are much larger and more free flowing than the stock housings housing are. We used a turbo that is rated at 640 BHP expecting it to see 500-550 WHP with the smaller housings due to the efficient DI motor. The stock turbo is able to make 400 WHP or 440BHP with such a small turbo also due it being such a efficient DI motor. Without upping the turbine size and just putting a bigger comp wheel, its going to be very hard to get much more power out of these things, flowing more up top is usually a by product of bigger A/R's and turbine wheels, not as much compressor wheels. Compressor wheels can increase the efficiency of the turbo and usually make the same air at lower shaft speeds which will help increase life, etc. I would be very curious to see if the stage 1 would provide any increases over stock as the turbine wheel size is basically maxed out already at current levels. But you never know until you try. Interested in seeing dynos.
