    Born ready over here folks, what is being stated is 100% fact, and armed with plenty of pics to illustrate each and every point. So anyone can feel free to bring it.:music-rockout:

    Going to look into it. Ive been leaning on going to syvecs but still haven't seen the n54 do anything spectacular. shrugg.. It seems its the perfect platform to make "good power" with little mods and money but not competitive against other big power cars.

    Hey iminhell1 do you work win winKFP? I installed WINKFP and I installed and updated everything as mentionned in bimmergeek and I keep getting the error 106 when trying to update the ecu? I seen a lot's of solution on google but none of them fixed my issue. I manually copied the gdaten and ecu files into the c: folder and still not working??? Thank you guys!

    Bummer, mine work fine :/ but then again they are different that the Motiv ones.. either way totally agree about port injection. I have seen Jake mention DME integrated PI control being a thing soon, wouldn't that be a nice way?

    It is not what sets them a part as a whole, it is more so only the icing(s) on the cake. On point though a lot of it is already pictured and discussed above, just have to take the moment to read and view the pictures closely. When we can find the moment to write a more elaborate post we will, and of course get some more detailed pics too. Patience grasshopper. In the right hands we are sure they will not make any less power than any other turbos, and more importantly be more inclined to survive the process over the subsequent several months/years. Lots of accolades in these turbos, however from a power only perspective it is in both of the housings which are lightyears beyond what has been known across the N54 universe the past few years. Very large turbo volutes and frame sizes are going to pay large dividends that the N54 has really yet to see; including more power at less boost, less octane needs for x power, less backpressure/reversion, less popped engines, etc. Good question. The manifold runners are right about the size of OEM, ~34.25mm. There is absolutely no reason to increase the size of primary runners, an overly large manifold runner (mismatched to the cylinder head port) only helps create a slug for a turbo in response. Or in short there is no restriction in the runners of the manifolds of the N54 engine, so run for the hills if your vendor of choice is trying to sell you on N54 manifold runners being a restriction point (NOTE: The collector size alongside manifold to housing matching is another story altogether). However these cast manifolds were found to be quite a bit out of spec internally and thus we developed our own tooling to straighten out the castings via our own internal machine work, including some efforts into the collector area. Over the years we have found this to be the norm, to really just plan on either buying castings in bare form and/or being prepared to "tidy them up" as very seldom are they just ready to go (unless you are just a kick it out of the door type of vendor). Having a full CNC shop certainly has its perks. Yes on the power ratings, we have a lineup of N54 turbos (Currently 7 options) all the way from OE to 700whp that are designed solely to make the power responsibly and while retaining efficiency and is achievable for nearly anyone who puts any minimal effort into it. Surely they all could make much more than advertised but if more is what you are looking for then there comes a point where you need to make the best decisions to satisfy that hunger prior to making a turbo purchase. Running turbos well out of their efficiency range is just not the smartest thing to do, or in other words it is flirting with disaster in so many ways doing that day in and day out. Also yes it seems to be the consensus on the competitive turbos seldom if ever making very much power anywhere other than on that single vendor controlled dyno. That and/or the turbos grenade in short order thereafter. We made some great strides in order to make these turbos the most reliable they could possibly be (more on that later), but there still comes a point where running around at 35psi with junk intercoolers/improper supporting mods/tuning/etc is not going to land you into a happy place for very long. The idea has been to produce a very nice and tastefully designed product that truly meets OEM design standards and thus will actually tolerate some abuse and last some significant mileage in the process.

    Motec M141. There's even a base map for it, that's half the battle right there. Strongly considering it for next year. May have to regardless if I have electrical gremlins this year.

    Aston should be a classy front engined GT not an ugly mid engined hyper car.

    CobraMarty replied to a thread N52: Turbocharger in N54, N55, N52
    So I got my SS cast elbows and Tees. It is always hard to know exactly what their measurements are without actually having them in your hand. I bought 42mm OD and 48mm OD pieces. The 42mm OD are actually (34mm)1.37-1.45"(1 3/8") ID and the 48mm are (41.5mm)1.61-1.65"(1 5/8") ID. I really wanted 1.5" ID for the runners. The Turbo manifold will basically be a log style, 2 separate, 3into1 for each bank. Only the end, 1st, will be 1 cylinder worth of exhaust gas and then will collect 2nd cylinder and then 3rd. So I will use the bigger 1 5/8" ID pieces for the log manifold. I could use the 1 3/8" ID for the 1st cylinder and then 'step up' to 1 5/8" for the 2nd and 3rd cylinder, but I like symmetry and I doubt the 1st short 90* 1 3/8' vs 1 5/8" will make any difference. Each bank, 3into1, will then flow into 57mm OD(?ID, 1 3/4", just ordered) pieces and then into the turbo. So there will be a 'step up' in the tubing size for each bank.

    RB generally rates their turbos where they will efficiently make power not completely maxed out. Also I could be mistaken, but I do not think I have seen a GC dyno over 700 that was not on VTT's dyno.
