    • The first true 1000+ whp N54 - E82 135i hits 1005.8 rear wheel horsepower

      A true 1000+ wheel horsepower from the N54 is something the N54 tuning scene waited over a decade for. You might recall Motiv previously claimed to have hit 1000+ wheel horsepower back in early 2018 but that was with dyno manipulation and not a true 1000 wheel horsepower pull.


      This looks to be the first true 1000+ whp pull:


      It is uncorrected but that is fine as that means correction factor games are not being played. It truly put that output down as tested.

      What is involved here? A Syvecs standalone ECU for one. It certainly is interesting this was not done on the factory ECU which some claim to be just as capable as the Syvecs.

      The block is reinforced using CSS (Cylinder Support Systems):




      The engine bay looks something like this:


      More details hopefully to come.

      The 1000+ whp N54 era now truly is here.

        You need a bit more power for a 7.99 maybe another 400hp and a good transmission.

        Ok... I think you might need my shipping location lol... but honestly I strongly believe 1000whp set up set up right on a n54 especially the 135i it should crack low 8's peeking at 7

        IF this thing ran 7's everyone would be hoping on the train.. With the way the car is setup now I do not think it will hit any where close to 7's. It won't make it out of the hole in one piece.


        You sound a bit salty too. RB products from looking around seem to be cheaper than most reputable offerings. Seems like they also offer the better quality products.

        Clearly we have another one of those know-it-all teeny boppers posting here. We are not talking a dragged out gutted fox body here making 1,000whp on a turbo'd small block, we are talking an actual BMW E82. While extremely cool and one hell of an accomplishment for the engine platform chances are this car would be running 10-11's without substantial chassis/suspension/drivetrain mods. When that is all done it should break into the very low 9's, IMO even a high 8 is a very tall order.

        This is true, we see it everyday, consumers buying absolute junk for more than what we sell our products for via email inquiries for packaged offerings with non-fee oriented payments. Getting less for more seems to the trend for some of these dummies. That aside even our MSRP is better than most.

        It is no disrespect to myself, unless you mean by trying to keep the topic of the thread in order for Motiv's sake.

        And yeah as he is from Houston he's probably a MMP fanboi who took my joke above personally.
