    • Introducing RB Turbo BMW S55 RB Twos Hybrid Turbo Upgrade/Inlet Package - MSRP $2,899

      Been a long time coming but going into 2020 we made an internal deal to start opening up to some of these other markets that we have so long ignored, yet find much more lucrative, than the N54 market that we have been focused on nearly entirely since 2010.


      A bit about this RB S55 offering is that they are not designed to be the end all be all setup, and we know 100% are not going to take down the competitions peak numbers, and this is 100% not our concern. These were designed to be the perfect all around setup, the jack of all trades if you will, for the customer who wants considerably more but really doesn't want to deal with all of the crap that comes with going too crazy modifying engines too far beyond their intended tolerable specs.

      The big thing with these is that we really needed to make a custom spec'd turbine wheel, to allow for a perfect fitment into these S55 turbine housings, as such this is NOT a TD04L or TD04HL as neither fits the housing properly. This custom turbine wheel is somewhere in between those wheel sizes however is closer in size to the TD04L than the TD04HL, thus making them a better fit to be our S55 RB Twos. We have provided pictures of the turbine wheel to housing relationships (something seldom to never done in this industry), which clearly illustrates that our combination of parts are actually custom designed for one another thus matching to perfection.

      At some point later we will make a S55 RB Twos Plus, that will entail another custom larger (closer to TD04HL sizing) turbine that will likely create much more lag and it may not be for everyone, unfortunately this is always the trade off for bigger power. It also will use a considerably larger compressor that will certainly not work with the OE front plastic inlet anymore, so we will have to do something entirely custom for that. No big deal there as we've had solutions dreamt up for it for years now, but this is where we are starting out and we really like how it all came together.

      All in all this setup has been designed to make what most people are going to want, authentic OE quality and hand built in the USA with premium top tier balancing equipment (CHRA dynamic balancing to 0.1g levels up to 170,000rpm), 100+whp power potential yet retain as close to OE turbo transient response as possible, complete and packaged with port matched inlets, all at an insanely great price that is really going to shake up this platform.

      We spent a lot of time diligently customizing, machining, and building these units; and we expect one hell of a solid all around setup. Here are some more pics for you all to enjoy.

      Lastly at this moment we are processing 5 additional sets, and would be open to a further discount for forum members! Please email rob.rbturbo@gmail.com if you have any interest.

      Thanks,
      Rob

        S8 with DynoSpectrum flash. Looking at getting a >2018 mustang and putting a 3L Whipple on it though. https://www.lethalperformance.com/in...ect-goldmember on 93 its really cost effective.

        It's also nice that it applies to 3 BMW M platforms.

        Yeah, we've yet to check out all the PN's for 100% confirmation but we fully suspect they will be identically casted for all 2014+ M3/M4 and 2018+ M2 (equipped with the S55 engine).

        M2C and presumably M2CS owners just got real happy.

        Between the M2/M3/M4 there should be a lot of happiness, just need to get some of these out there and get some data/feedback now. The only set we have shipped is part of an engine build project, which ideally is completed over the next couple weeks, the other 5 sets are still awaiting some new homes.Click here to enlarge

        Your not making any money or even being competitive in the n54 market no more so now you want to take care of the platforms you have ignored!? Man stop it!

        We still sell a good amount of N54 turbo setups, in fact we are at 4 sets so far this week, so we are definitely not going to turn it away. But well agree that there are better markets to spend the time for better returns in the future, so as we can dictate these things it makes sense to put more efforts into other platforms that will without question increase returns on time. Ultimately working much less for the same income, working the same for more income, or working more for much more income are all great recipes for continued success (not the opposite).

        Besides we have had inventory on much of the custom parts and cores on numerous other engine platforms for a very long time, so love it or hate it sir here we are checking off the first new platform on the list, with more to come.

        Not really anything to share here, we've only had a few emails and no real serious interest (ie. "interested sometime later this year or next" type inquiries). Must be a very slow market to sell in, or perhaps just a tough market to penetrate, at least without any results (which makes sense). However there was some figuring in that the price alone, being beyond amazing, would kick it into high gear... but not looking to be the case.

        The one setup we have out there is a full engine build (just beefed up with forged pistons/rods/crankhub fix/stock head) setup, and last I'd heard it was alive and well and awaiting a dyno session.

        It's going to be unbelievably slow for a while for everyone unfortunately.

        Definitely understood as the world is in shambles, the N54 market seems to be doing fairly well still though.
