    mjmarovi's Single Turbo build at Proven Power Tampa

    Hey guys,

    So I guess people are getting bored in the N54 section here so I decided what better time to start my build thread. Here is a list of everything going on with the car, at least waiting to start the list now should make it pretty complete.


    At this point plan on using JB4 with BB Flash backend, once PTF is offering some pro-tunes for ST's I may give them a try just to compare, I mean, if only two tuning options available, after this investment, what's another $1,000 to explore both options?

    - Turbo- Forced Performance HTA3586r with V-band in and out, .82 A/R DBB, billet wheel, ceramic coated turbine housing

    - Wastegate- Tial MVR 44mm

    -All fabrication including custom manifold, dump tube, intake tubing, charge piping, (using my existing ETS charge-piping from FMIC outlet to throttle body) wastegate, etc. by Proven Power. The manifold is going to be jigged not sure what type of offering the shop plans on doing, but he did say he wants to be ready to do more in the future. (my car is #2 , Ak335i was #1 ).

    - Proven Power will also be doing custom downpipe and connection to mid-pipes utilizing my Active Autowerke dual exhaust.

    - Mishimoto Transmission Cooler with AN Dash -8 connections upgraded to Dash 10 by Proven Power with all SS lines and black SS fittings

    - PTF engine mounts

    -ECS Tuning transmission mounts

    -Alpina TCU Flash (wouldn't mind someone helping me setup my laptop or someone local to Florida that would take cash in exchange for the trip to the shop to do the flash for me)

    - Oil filter housing thermostat delete plate with all SS lines

    - Upgraded transmission oil lines to SS

    - Upgrading meth injection lines to stainless steel, installing two bungs in chargepipe, and doing a third bung/nozzle pre-intercooler

    - Doing custom intake duct through front bumper

    - Upgrade MAP sensor and boost solenoid utilizing FFtec PNP harness on the MAC solenoid and FFtec bracket

    - Team MFactory Limited Slip Differential

    - Custom fab aluminum waterneck and watertube

    - Relocate power steering and coolant reservoirs

    - Bore out inlet on fuel rail and remove screen on HPFP

    - Walbro 255 inline LPFP upgrade

    - Cobb ETS 7" FMIC (previously installed by me)

    - Rebuilt transmission by nizpro- Australia

    And here's some "non-performance" stuff also changing

    - Vorsteiner like vented carbon fiber hood

    - M3 style front bumper with carbon fiber lip

    - M3 style sideskirts

    - Carbon fiber rear spoiler (previously installed by me)

    - BC Forged 2-piece HB04 wheels 18"


    I feel like I have done nothing but purchase some sort of part every other day for months now, so feels weird summing it up in a couple paragraphs and a list but....onto some progress pics. Here is what has progressed with pictures up to date as of last March 8th I think.


    Pic of engine bay before taking it to the shop. I was FBO at this point and time.

    Exciting! Looking to watching to see how it turns out. May I ask, what strut tower brace are you rocking in that first pic? Looks like a quality item.

    I believe it's the AA strut bar. Makes a nice difference in turns to keep the nose planted.

    Whats the story on your trans build? Is this a stock rebuild or upgrade? Not familiar with nizpro. Good luck with your build. Looks like its finally coming along. Looked up nizpro and saw alot of zf ford stuff but no bmw. Is this there first bmw or have they already done some? Looks like they have some proven results.

    Active Autowerke I went to their shop for their exhaust system, saw the strut bar, had to have lol. It's definitely the best one I've seen. A bit wider too so probably one of the stronger ones.

    Most of their experience is with the ZF6hp26 still in the 6hp family. They are pretty confident and have a couple connections on the tuning front so we'll see. They are currenty one of the only companies that offers complete rebuilds of the 6hp26 from hardware to tuning, so I'm pretty optimistic.

    I did not, and honestly not 100% on what they plan on doing, I know I've discussed with them a couple different companies that have experience in the ZF transmission tuning world. 07Tundra actually found a company that claims tuning and slipping fixes via tuning for ZF transmissions in BMW's, Audi's, Ford, etc. and they are a Euro based company. They are of course being contacted. I do know even on the hardware side this is going to be a whole new approach AFAIK and there is good reason to believe we are on to something good now.

    Nice, I'm ready for a tcu tuning upgrade. No signs of any problems but I feel like I'm on borrowed time with no tcu upgrade.

    Thanks man. I really don't think the chargepipe will pose any issues though, I don't see why anyway.

    1000+whp GTR's have no issues running the exact same clamps and couplers on their ETS kits, I don't suspect any issues myself. If for some reason I do I'll just take it back to the shop and have a solid CP built, but I really don't expect any isssues.
