    that's what i got

    he didn't say 'it's the new 2jz'.. to me, he said the N54 powered cars are slotting into the enthusiast market/mindset like the JZA80 and R32-R34 did, with ease and capability of modifications as a whole package.

    Agreed... I think that's why many people refer to it as the new 2jz, because it's a factory turbo motor that can be modded to double the hp without swapping internals

    That's what I've been thinking all along. It isn't in the same class as the 2JZ because it has open deck, DI, aluminum block etc.... but as far as power goes, 7xx whp on STOCK INTERNALS is legendary. It's cheap horsepower and I think that's why it's so popular.

    FWIW, i'm pretty sure the "standalone" they are referring to is one that's been discussed before... a while back.

    Damn, I was really hoping they'd offer an upgraded HPFP solution and not go the PI route.

    Regardless, props for them for sticking with the platform all this time and not giving up like AMS.

    Btw, can anyone confirm whether that's the current CP-E FMIC on the kit?

    Looks professional. So, is this kit the closest to production ready twin kit we've seen? It will be nice to see how Vargas will be arranging the turbos and intakes when he'll get to this level. Hopefully soon! Click here to enlarge

    Gorgeous kit there, and no doubt cost a fortune to develop. Cp-E is an amazing company and it would be awesome to have all the developmental resources they have, this would've been a very fun (and frustrating lol) project to work on having all of that. Kudos to cp-e for building what appears to be a masterpiece N54 turbo kit that will install/fit well and that's entirely complete.

    I've got at least 4 of them in my garage... I looked back at my computer files recently. I had over 150 firmware flashes stored. That means I was in my ecu box at least that many times. lol.
    It was a good system. CPE just never added the staff to support its development.

    lol, i saw it a few weeks ago when packing some things and decided to leave it there just in case. I was always wondering what me and jake could have done with it at the time, or if it will ever be relevant again- would hate to ditch it and a few months from now it be useful to somebody

    as much as i think the N54 block should be strong enough to make a boatload of power... i wouldn't doubt twin GTX35's at high boost will easily grenade the motor.

    the twin 30's, however, over the 2867's... well that'd likely be a fairly interesting comparison Click here to enlarge.. assuming the 28's can be run out without breaking things too much Click here to enlarge

    What a gorgeous piece of engineering. Thanks for the interview and the coverage of this kit.
    That "rep" is actually the owner. Nice guy, meet him a few times. I saw this kit in various stages of development over the last few years at their shop.

    Twin GTX3582R's is about 1400 HP worth of air! Unfortunately, you wouldn't see full spool until over 6000 RPM LOL.

    IMO, those turbo choices leave a lot to be desired. Going anything above a 28 frame garrett wheel family in twin form on the N54 is a complete and total overkill unless this is a 100% track car with anti-lag set up and possibly a small shot of nitrous. The only exception might be twin GTX3076R's but even then you are looking at least 5000-5250 spool time without help. This just doesn't seem ideal. But the close ups of the kit, man that thing is beautiful and well done. Very good job CP-e, just not sure exactly who this kit is marketed towards? People who want an all out race car usually would like to save weight over OEM quality such as water cooled gates, all cast parts, etc. The people who want OEM quality are usually the people with money to burn who wants a car that drives like stock but with a lot more power. Putting them in a car with twin 30 series lag on the street I would have to imagine they would be highly disappointed. Either way, very curious to see the numbers.
