    So any New's for a development for the Z4 N54 powered users? Any of the vendor's of the Forum have something in mind or anyone else?

    True, but that is my last option... I wouldnt want something that isnt product of R&D... Installing the Quaife LSD soon and the Z could use/utilize some extra power from the DP.

    Surprised the Z guys haven't made a bigger deal about this. A car light like that should be the first where users are asking for downpipes and additional mods. I mean the 535 seems to have more options...

    That's the reason i joined this forum, to find out about the tune. I tried a loaner JB3 i was actually pretty happy about the performance burst/increase (eating E92 M3's alive) but didnt like the way my DCT responded. I was gonna try the procede but waiting for the JB4 with all the upgrades built in it for the final judgement Click here to enlarge.

    I am really suprised tuners didnt utilize the Z4 to run mid (or alot lower) 11's. I mean, i was ahead of alot of 335's on a stock vs. stock run. Im currently running stock and gotta tell ya, im killing alot of cars out there everyday even stock (just running high octane fuel with additives and a high flow filter). Last runs with a 07 Porsche Cayman S and and i was at least a car or two ahead from full stop (3 runs all the same outcome). I just wanna utilize my launch control system better with an LSD (underway). I'll just wait a bit longer for some reliable company to fabricate downpipes, if not ill go the custom fabrication way.

    Good idea, plus if they don't fit you can always just sell them

    I am in Greece at the moment, and i think i know which guy you are reffering to! I love the work on his custom DP and exhaust but i would like a little more R&D for the flow of the downpipes i will install.

    if the company claims they fit all of them, i would say go ahead and get a good set know for 135/335. They would have to fit.

    No, they actually have different model's for each car. I managed to find out about the Z4 owner with them Downpipes on and found some video's on youtube doin a dyno run with some modest tuning and one street racing an e92 M3 (i think the m3 has intake/exhaust mod's) . Not bad.
    Is this your friend Dim135? Great performance coming just from DP and reflash...





    I will still wait for AR or some other major tuner's downpipes tho Click here to enlarge
