    Closed deck looks good. Surprised they do not offer fueling solutions also.

    Doubly funny they are maintaining fog lights in their 1er which means it was not a 135i originally or it is a funky...

    I rather imagine BMW engineers specified the correct version of the ZF 8HP transmission.

    Maybe the RR and 760 LXi version? Same as M5 version?

    Yes on both turbos and twinned HPFP.

    Perhaps he is not getting enough of it to the cylinders?

    Nitrous Oxide is the cocaine of engine tuning. Great bursts of power, short engine life.

    Nitrous is like cocaine for engines. It is a crutch that only creates more problems long term.

    Actually it is a B58, quite different from the N series with closed deck block and dual zone block and head cooling just for starters.

    I think he will have to go to a S58 to get close to 1K HP as...

    122S? Very pretty but the heat loading on the radiator would not work in most of the US in the Summer. Seems like he could have baffles the sides of the radiator to better duct ambient air through...

    How much gain there was. Helix has always been one of the most thermally stable and efficient IC.
  13. General: That's the bottom line. Things like key locked...

    That's the bottom line. Things like key locked crankshaft balancers, forged pistons and rods, closed decks and optimized heads cost money. The big advantage (besides no Valvetronics) is that the...

    Surprised by the high IAT, but it is what it is.

    Ouch. Better known than unknown.

    So to clarify and to eliminate other causes, these were new Index 12 injectors?

    Informative post nonetheless.

    I think AUS was one of the markets that received the GETRAG DCT on some 335i.

    For BMW, I recall only the N54 being Piezo electric DI. All the rest are solenoid.

    I believe I have read some of the Porsche Turbo and Turbo S designated engines employ piezo electric injectors....

    Nice, but say you go from Austin (93 pump octane) to San Diego (91 ACN crapgas) where does one change the tune and to which tune? OEM have to leave considerable margin so all 15 seasonal blends...
  21. N54: Spool Performance HPFP installation

    Looks like we will be able to determine its viability soon with eBay "Pure replacement" turbos starving the N54 on E40:

    Better have a good dashcam to see who will key the car.

    I remember with my 135i I would park it in the furthest reaches of the parking lot with empty rows surrounding it. Come back 20 minutes...

    Sounds like with that power draw it may be better to wait for a 48V system.
  24. HRE is one of the most overhyped names in the aftermarket wheel game.

    One wonders if you have ever had forged wheels from BBS, OZ Racing, Rays Engineering or Forgeline?

    I have seen HRE come apart on the track. I would never own a set nor would I run them even on...
