    I'm sure he's going to. Hopefully sooner than later, as I'm pretty sure it's part of the agreement of getting free turbos.

    I'll have mine dyno'd once the order is completed and everything's installed.. Hoping within the next month I'll have it all in my hands and ready to strap on the dyno..

    Is anyone not aware of what these GC's are capable of? Seeing them installed in Z4 was pretty satisfying regardless.

    I apologize for not getting dynos done sooner. A lot of crazy stuff has happened in real-life, some really good and some really bad. I'll keep it short for now, but there's very few people I've talked to at length with this.

    The bad: My E90 is dead and buried; I'm lucky to be alive (flipped 6 times -- my fault). I don't think I need to explain how depressing this is for anything car related. First at-fault accident for me ever, have been driving for over 20 years now including many other powerful cars.

    The good: I've gotten a promotion of sorts at work that involves a lot more traveling to London. I was there for 2 weeks in December, late Jan/early Feb, and leaving again for 2 weeks next Monday.

    GCs have had some miles put on them as my gf dailies them. She's crushed a couple Porsches and Vettes on the interstate apparently Click here to enlarge I tend to take the car out for a spin every now and then to make sure everything is perfect tune-wise, etc. And so far so good, there's no evidence of anything amiss on the car; runs like stock but makes about 300hp more. These are definitely the most obvious turbo upgrades one could have on a car though. They sound like diesel turbos almost even at light throttle.

    I'm so sorry to hear this man. I'm just glad that you're okay bro. The car was definitely a monster, and nothing short of it.

    Glad to hear you are ok brother! Scary thought right there! I have modified our N54's to the point where I honestly do not fee safe testing them on public roads 99% of the time anymore, lets along going full title in anything over 3rd gear. I rarely drive them fast unless I am at an event. The speed of these cars is deceptive, and you get up to very dangerous speeds very very quickly. I've lost cars before due to fire, etc. Its prob one of the worst feelings ever, akin to losing a loved on, just be thankful it was only the car. Always replaceable!

    Yikes! I just had a close call a couple of weeks ago myself. Missed having the worst sort of day by about 3". It can happen fast, at fault or not at fault... doesn't really matter in the moment. Glad you're ok. Stay safe.

    Just read this. I'm sorry to hear about it.

    Glad you are here to tell the tale. I remember my accident which was similar. It changes your life a bit but you'll get back in the saddle and be fine.
