    A Turbo kit on the S54, tuned via the factory ECU will be an amazing accomplishment! Alex deserves it with all his hard work, nice teaser J. Click here to enlarge

    What a tease! Share more info.

    What did he mean by, the turbo was replaced? Was this an HPF or a custom Turbo e46 M3 car being reworked?

    This was NOT an HPF car. I can only share what I'm allowed to share... this was a custom setup that is now being done properly. The turbo was dead when they got it, so they replaced it.

    I'm confused this has already been done in the UK, standard DME tuned for turbo.

    Yep, with huge expense and sacrificing the AC, no water-air intercooler, etc.

    Nobody in the US has done it yet.

    No, not really. Still plenty of work to be done and this is extremely complicated tuning.

    The car is running and driving fine, there were no roadblocks on the stock DME, It's more mechanical work at this point getting it perfect.

    It doesn't appear to be going to production at this point.

    That's all I can say Click here to enlarge

    I don't think so... I think this was just to help Mliner and get it done. Amazing nonetheless...
