    335i Doc Race ST build, sanity check my parts list please

    After a little searching I found a stock manual '09 335i with 56k miles, I'm picking it up later this week up in the DC area.

    To start, for the next year or two this will be serving as my DD. It's not ideal, but if anything catastrophic occurs (knock on wood) I'll rent a car for the time being and sort it out. That being said, a requirement will be 93 octane pump gas only. No meth or port injection until this becomes a secondary car (and gets a 335is brother). I initially was looking at pure stage 2's, but after a lot of reading decided to go the single turbo route for the added reliability.

    It seems a lot of the single turbo guys are out of business, from my research it was between Motiv and DocRace. I decided on DocRace mainly because of the price, BUT, only because with that price came massive amounts of positive feedback and comments on the great quality of the kit. Talking with John reinforced all of this. 200+ kits out and no reports of cracking manifolds etc. I pulled the trigger on his top mount kit with a precision 6062. He recommended it since I mentioned quick spool was a priority and my power goals (500-550rwhp) fell well within its power range.

    So, along with that I bought the following from Mike at N54 Tuning:

    Finishing the routing to the intake:

    -ER competition FMIC
    -ER charge pipe with TIAL BOV

    Fuel:

    -Fuel-it Stage 2 LPFP

    Ignition:

    -Precision Racewerks PnP ignition system

    Drivetrain:

    -Mfactory steel flywheel
    -SPEC stage 3+ clutch (going to change this to 2+)
    -Mfactory LSD complete pumpkin

    Electrical/tuning:

    -VRSF catless fix (need to pass obd emissions)
    -JB4 piggyback for safeties and boost control
    -MHD BEF

    In addition to all of that I bought:

    -RB low side OCC kit
    -BMS high side OCC kit
    -BMS shorty filter
    -BMS MAC solenoid and MAP sensor
    -Motiv's ADV O2 sensors

    I think I am going to replace the HPFP and injectors since I'm tearing everything apart anyways. Kind of just makes sense to me. The OP sent over receipts of recent repairs and the blower was replaced due to recall and the cooling pump and thermostat was replaced as well so that should be good for another 50k.

    Main question now: am I missing anything and should I address cooling at all. Research didn't turn up much. CSF radiator and maybe a fan replacement? Should I think about ER's oil coolers?

    I appreciate any help or input you guys can offer. Thanks! - Brian

    Just the ones that should be. You'll notice the guys making quality stuff often can't keep up with demand.

    It's a great vid but it is also helpful to have things written out in text. Especially for google searches and quick reference.
