    Last they posted on this they said they are for sure doing the kit! they are still in the r&d phase but very close to having a kit mocked up for production of a test kit. They also said that they expect the same power as they get with their m3 kit varying per stage.

    The part about getting the same power as their M3 kit is wishful thinking. Which one? At what boost? At what gas? That is just kind of a weird statement, I don't believe I saw that.

    When I spoke with HPF they said they intend to get to it but it is on the back burner. I do not believe anything has changed since then. I think HPF has a lot to do with the E46 M3 right now before they can move on to a new platform.

    They absolutely said it it! Remember when i told you e46 had warned me of cross posting, that was the thread that they answered the question in. They said that the turbo kit would be offered same as the m3 same stages and very similar power

    There are some clues on the hpf website for their 335i intercooler...

    "HPF FMIC Usage with HPF Stage 1 Turbo System

    The HPF stage 1 turbo system to be released in May includes our "end user tunable" engine management system (to be announced), HPF plug-n-play harness, HPF exhaust system, drop in air filter and the HPF FMIC with c-clip couplers. This kit is designed to maximize the stock twins potential while still retaining the factory IC piping. If you already have the FMIC with c-clip couplers then you can purchase the remaining stage 1 kit components separately when the kit is released.

    HPF FMIC Usage with HPF Stage 2 Turbo System

    The HPF stage 2 turbo system release date is TBD and will include all of the HPF stage 1 components "plus" our HPF intake manifold, HPF exhaust manifold with T4 flange for single turbo, A 67 series turbo, an aftermarket BOV (TBD), our HPF fuel rail and injectors, fuel pump, and new IC piping for the hot and cold side along with 5-ply silicon couplers and T-bolt clamps. For those that purchased the FMIC already in the earlier stage with the c-clip inlet and outlet flanges, they can simply ship it back to us and we will weld on the correct stage 2 inlet and outlet "beaded" flanges for free. For those going directly to stage 2 at this time, we will supply the intercooler with the correct stage 2 inlet and outlet flanges. "

    Oh, same as the M3 stages I can understand.

    Same power though is not possible.

    Do you know when this was put up? I'm wondering if May is a reference to May of this year.

    No kidding.

    The S54 head flows over 50% more stock than the N54. Port work won't even come close to fixing that with the N54...you need a whole new head casting to have similar power potential.

    The biggest issue with the N54 in my opinion is that the Direct Injectors interfere with the port dimensions.

    But then...I'm just a fly on the wall....

    Hey...do you you have flow bench numbers on the two, would be great info.

    We can't be sure of that...it's never really been pushed with proper fueling yet.

    I have no idea. I was shopping intercoolers and saw it yesterday. I wouldn't be surprised if they meant May 2010 and didn't make it.

    To be honest, stage 1 doesn't look like anything new. Basically a tune, drop in filter, exhaust (with downpipes?), and FMIC.

    Stage 2 is where it gets interesting with a single turbo, new intake manifold, and additional fuel rail/injectors. From their recent update video, they seem to be very busy with e46s though.

    Actually, we can be sure of it. Exactly as was stated in the previous post the S54 is simply a far more efficient motor that not only has a superior valve train and larger displacement it also revs much higher with a better curve.

    It isn't a comparison, the N54 to approach the S54 would have to become an S54.

    Look at the power the S54 puts out at lower boost, that should tell you everything right there.

    Why people don't get this I do not understand.

    Why would someone even wait for a big turbo kit for the 335i. Just find a clean E46 M3 and slap on a HPF kit.

    It is proven reliable BIG horsepower.

    What does waiting for the 335i kit accomplish?

    Dude...really?

    LOL

    The S54 is for sure a stout drivetrain! It does rev higher, and I've yet to see flowbench tests of the head vs. the N54 head....but for arguments sake, I could see how it would flow more; as the engine was developed for very high specific output.

    However.....

    The N54 hasn't really been pushed yet with proper fueling....there were days pre-HPF when everyone thought low-mid 400s whp was the ABSOLUTE RELIABLE LIMIT on these engines because they were high compression, not engineered for boost...bla bla bla. And now look, the S54 on stock bottom end does alright, we're talkin numbers in the 600 range with Meth and Race. Not bad at all. Boost vs Boost comparisons on these two different engines is kind of ridiculous considering different displacement, Turbos, compression ratio, general architecture, just to name a few.

    I'm not saying the N54 WILL make as much or more power....but no one here can say without BS speculation and keyboard tuning, that it in FACT won't....its just asinine, we haven't even seen a real turbo with proper fueling on this motor yet; really!?

    For the record i don't own an N54 or a N55 for that matter. But Sticky...i must say, you surely love to hate these turbo BMW engines, and the 1///M ;-). You don't have to come out and say it, but its between every line you type, man. Not trying to be confrontational, but lay off the Haterade, mkay? :-) And for the record I do love the BMW NA powerplants too...having spent time in both E30, E36, and E92 M3s (two of which i've owned)...I feel you, but give them a chance! In a couple years we won't have an option if we want to be in a new M car. Cheers....

    I do:

    What's even more interesting is the port velocity at RPM intervals, but I'm not going to get into posting that data yet.
