    • Motiv 900 single turbo E92 335i with built N54 posts 919 horsepower to the rear wheels

      Great to see more 9XX rwhp N54's which still are fairly rare. This is a single turbo Motiv 900 setup with a built N54 tuned through MHD. This is a 6-speed manual car which the higher horsepower street N54's tend to be.


      The full specs are not posted but the car is using a Spool Helix combined with port injection for fueling. E85 and direct port methanol are apparently the recipe.

      The clutch of course is upgraded to handle the power and torque. Peak power comes at 6700 rpm and the torque curve holds well until redline:


      Hopefully more details will be shared but this is definitely one of the more powerful N54's out there with only a handful cracking that 9XX mark.

        Great Dyno number. What kind of trap does it run 11s at?

        This is my car.. clearly I didnít plan this build around drag racing - always funny to see the redundant 1/4 mile comments though.

        Nice build, but how is that clear?

        Based on the fact that itís a full weight street car on 17s with a giant 72mm and an OEM 6 speed manual

        Sure, it's not a drag car but there is absolutely no reason this can't make for a fast car in the 1/4 mile. That is by no means a huge turbo that precludes a 3l to roll or 1/2 mile racing. Plenty of supras have gone deeps 8s on the OEM 6speed and 3 liters.

        Sure, but those Supraís going 8s are most certainly not limited by the stock ECU - they can build boost off the line with REAL antilag and are part of a platform that has been in place for a longer period of time with more focus and attention on the drag strip - so while the engines are ďsimilarĒ - itís not fair to really make a true apples to apples comparison. I personally didnít have the 1/4 mile goal in mind with this build - it started as my daily driver and slowly progressed into a fun street car and highway monster. I only had to comment because after years on these pages the 1/4 mile talk is always the first discussion when a dyno sheet is posted - never mind anything else it took to get the car running properly at this power level.

        I can assure you that everyone here respects what it takes to put together a reliable, 900whp, 3l street car.

        But you have to admit... its pretty funny there are only a handful of them in the 10s after a decade of development and internet wars over who made the most power on a dyno Click here to enlarge

        Yeah, and then the RS3 comes out and goes 10s on stock hardware with a smaller motor. But I have to admit that I do still like my 335xi. When I run the numbers on a used RS3 I still don't like the payment that pops out but maybe in another year or two. Or three.

        I don't think that was done on the stock turbo was it?

        Quite a few have gone 9s on stock turbo, but they're generally tin cans on small brakes and 15s. I'm not sure what the closest to stock car to run a 9 is at this point is...

        Nice build. Very similar to mine. It's nearly impossible to keep 900HP + planted on the pavement with this platform. 1/2 mile is more reasonable.
