    BimmerBoost often criticizes BMW engine swaps but those swaps criticized do not utilize BMW powerplants. This one on the other hand does and the result is absolutely awesome. Who needs to stick yet another LS V8 under the hood of a BMW when the S63 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 exists? It seems this Russian owner agrees as he built one of the most amazing swaps BimmerBoost has ever written about. An S63 V8 under the hood of this 1-Series alone would be incredible but on top of that this E82 1M gets an all wheel drive system. Will that add considerable weight? Sure, but it will also help put down the immense torque the S63 V8 is known for especially in tuned form. Now the exact details are somewhat difficult to come by as Google Translate is not a professional translator. It seems this project originally started as an E82 1-Series which received a S65 V8 swap from an E92 M3. Since then the bodywork was converted to a 1M and painted yellow. Then the S63 V8 (the motor and transmission was taken from an E70 X5M) was swapped in. Enjoy the build photos below and hopefully we get more information on this car. <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-version="7" style=" background:#FFF; border:0; border-radius:3px; box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width:658px; padding:0; width:99.375%; width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px); width:calc(100% - 2px);"><div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:50.0% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAABGdBTUEAALGPC/xhBQAAAAFzUkdCAK7OHOkAAAAMUExURczMzPf399fX1+bm5mzY9AMAAADiSURBVDjLvZXbEsMgCES5/P8/t9FuRVCRmU73JWlzosgSIIZURCjo/ad+EQJJB4Hv8BFt+IDpQoCx1wjOSBFhh2XssxEIYn3ulI/6MNReE07UIWJEv8UEOWDS88LY97kqyTliJKKtuYBbruAyVh5wOHiXmpi5we58Ek028czwyuQdLKPG1Bkb4NnM+VeAnfHqn1k4+GPT6uGQcvu2h2OVuIf/gWUFyy8OWEpdyZSa3aVCqpVoVvzZZ2VTnn2wU8qzVjDDetO90GSy9mVLqtgYSy231MxrY6I2gGqjrTY0L8fxCxfCBbhWrsYYAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"></div></div><p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;"><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BJqfUBKjzQD/" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px; text-decoration:none;" target="_blank">A video posted by Sheff140 (@sheff140)</a> on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2016-08-28T19:20:31+00:00">Aug 28, 2016 at 12:20pm PDT</time></p></div></blockquote> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script> <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-version="7" style=" background:#FFF; border:0; border-radius:3px; box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width:658px; padding:0; width:99.375%; width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px); width:calc(100% - 2px);"><div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:28.125% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAABGdBTUEAALGPC/xhBQAAAAFzUkdCAK7OHOkAAAAMUExURczMzPf399fX1+bm5mzY9AMAAADiSURBVDjLvZXbEsMgCES5/P8/t9FuRVCRmU73JWlzosgSIIZURCjo/ad+EQJJB4Hv8BFt+IDpQoCx1wjOSBFhh2XssxEIYn3ulI/6MNReE07UIWJEv8UEOWDS88LY97kqyTliJKKtuYBbruAyVh5wOHiXmpi5we58Ek028czwyuQdLKPG1Bkb4NnM+VeAnfHqn1k4+GPT6uGQcvu2h2OVuIf/gWUFyy8OWEpdyZSa3aVCqpVoVvzZZ2VTnn2wU8qzVjDDetO90GSy9mVLqtgYSy231MxrY6I2gGqjrTY0L8fxCxfCBbhWrsYYAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"></div></div><p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;"><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BJSlbAhjsgE/" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px; text-decoration:none;" target="_blank">A video posted by Sheff140 (@sheff140)</a> on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2016-08-19T12:32:07+00:00">Aug 19, 2016 at 5:32am PDT</time></p></div></blockquote> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

    $134,200 for a performance car with an emphasis on track performance better result in impressive track performance. The M4 GTS makes a big statement with its MSRP but does not back it up where it matters. As a matter of fact, the Ford Mustang GT350R and the Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE both top it around Laguna Seca. This measured result is from MotorTrend's own testing. The M4 GTS laps Laguna Seca in 1:37.66. The Shelby Mustang GT350R is 1.6 seconds quicker. That is an eternity. It's long enough to do the math as to how much money someone buying a Shelby GT350R at $62,070 saved over an M4 GTS. What makes this truly spectacular is not only is the Mustang half the price it has a naturally aspirated high revving engine. Ford is beating BMW at their own game with a hand tied behind their back. Honestly, as a BMW M fan forced to sit back and watch the as M division chokes from spending so much time sniffing their own farts this is highly satisfying. Is it a wake up call to BMW? It should be considering that not only did the M4 GTS get obliterated by the Shelby GT350R the $44k Camaro SS 1LE edged the M4 GTS as well. What is the 1LE? Just an option package for the Camaro: Camaro SS 1LE Highlights 6.2L LT1 V8 rated at 455 horsepower, and 6-speed manual transmission (automatic transmission not available) Magnetic Ride Control Segment-exclusive electronic limited-slip differential with 3.73 ratio Unique forged-aluminum wheels with 285/30ZR20 front tires and 305/30ZR20 rear tires Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires with a compound and construction developed exclusively for Camaro Brembo brakes with new 6-piston monobloc front red calipers and 2-piece rotors Track cooling package with engine oil, differential and transmission coolers Suede steering wheel with shorter-throw shifter Dual-mode exhaust system RECARO front seats with aggressive bolsters optimized for shifting and steering comfort Satin black hood, front mirrors and unique 3-piece rear spoiler Available Performance Data Recorder What is the point of a $135k+ M car built for the track that can not top anyone in its price range let alone cars at a fraction of the cost? The M4 GTS does not need to be a world beater (like the cheaper Viper ACR) but it needs to be better than this to be taken seriously. Does anyone even take the M division seriously anymore? We will have the full results when MotorTrend posts their 2016 Best Driver's Car videos but it's clear that not only does the M4 GTS not live up to the hype, it's an abject failure.

    The problem with dyno records is that different dynos read differently. For this reason the Dynojet has become a sort of standard for power records. Now, is this technically an N54 stock turbo power record? Yes. Was it achieved on a Dynojet? No. Will the numbers change on a Dynojet? Yes. They could go up or down but based on previous Dynocom results seen it is more likely to see them go down. Regardless, stock turbo records do not mean much in an N54 tuning era where people are trying to hit 1000 what the wheels. It still is of course impressive to see this kind of power from the stock N54 turbochargers and how far stock turbo tuning evolved. Congrats to BimmerBoost member @hydra on the numbers but a Dynojet for context would be great to truly be able to claim a record. Impressive output nonetheless.

    As some of you know we have recently been producing the ADE Single Turbo Kit Version2. What is different in Version2? Well, its really just some small changes to the original kit to fit the larger S-cover Turbos. This not only allows for improved airflow from the S-cover, but also opens the doors to a larger selection of turbos that fit. The New PTE 6062gen2, 6266gen2, 6466gen2, and 6870gen2 all fit with the new ADE V2 ST kit! Along with the S-cover, we have increased the turbo intake tube to 3.5” and paired it with a large K&N filter. Key features: -Bottom mount design is both efficient and keeps heat away from temperature sensitive components -Precision turbocharger… highest power producing turbo per millimeter -All quality namebrand components -No cutting or need to relocate anything (i.e. coolant reservoir) -Downpipe outlet and compressor outlet are in stock locations so any stock or factory replacement exhaust and intercooler attach with no modifications needed -included urethane dampened engine mount (usually not included when comparing other kits) -all new gaskets, hardware, and hose to complete installation… no running to the auto parts store or dealership for the nickel/dime parts -detailed and illustrated install instructions Included in the base kit ( “Hot Side Kit” ) -AD Engineering Stainless Steel tubular manifold (ceramic coating included!) -Precision 6062Gen2 or 6266Gen2 BB T4 Turbo -3” Stainless Steel Downpipe -Tial MVR Wastegate -1.75” Stainless Steel Dumptube -Turbo Hot Side Intercooler Charge Tube -3.5” 6061 Turbo Intake -K&N Air Filter -Stainless Steel and insulated Heat Shield -Urethane Engine Mount -Coolant Block Manifold and Pipe -Coolant Blockoff Plugs -Oil Drain Plug -Turbo Oil Feed Block Fitting and SS Braided Line -Turbo Oil Return Fitting and SS Braided Line -New OEM Exhaust Manifold Donuts, Studs, and copper nuts -All Necessary Couplers, Clamps, hoses, gaskets, and hardware In celebration of this badass kit we are going to offer the Bimmerboost members a special group buy on five ADE ST kits. These ADE V2 kits will be available to the first five Bimmerboost members that make deposits. The group buy cost for this kit is $5499 and available in your choice of 6062gen2, 6266gen2, or 6466gen2. The 6870gen2 is available for an additional cost. That’s $900 off of retail, but we’re not stopping there…. We will also offer 10% off any additional ADE items that the member purchases at the time of the ST kit! What a great way to get 10% off our Port Injection, 1000hp Intercooler, Engine Mounts, Rear Brake Kit, and Chargepipe. Email me at andy@ad-eng.net if you would like to take advantage of this great deal.

    This is a great comparison to really see how cars perform. This is not mixing and matching Nurburgring laptimes from different days with different drivers and cars set up differently from their production counterparts. What we have here is as close as we can get to an honest track comparison from the major publications. What do we learn? That the BMW F82 M4 GTS again is beaten soundly by the Mustang GT350R. Honestly, enough about the overrated M4 GTS. The Mustang GT350R is a better driver's car even for the same money. At less than half the price it is not even a discussion. What else do we learn? That the Viper ACR is the baddest car on the planet. Seriously, Ferrari can pack their crap up and go home. That the brand spanking new twin turbo 488 GTB is trounced by the Viper that Ferrari actively holds back is poetic justice. The Viper ACR delivers a giant American middle finger pointed directly in the direction of Fiorano. Suck it Ferrari. Anything else? Well, the Camaro SS 1LE is soundly beaten by the BMW GTS showing the GTS on a big track like VIR (Virginia International Raceway) can simply use its power to make up for its other deficiencies. The main disappointments though are the Lexus GS-F and Audi R8 V10 Plus. 3771 pounds for the R8? Ouch. It gains quite a bit of weight over its Huracan sibling. It also is beaten by the cheaper Camaro SS and Porsche Cayman GT4. The Lexus GS-F brings up the rear (but ahead of the Audi TTS) because that is exactly where it should be and where it deserves to be. The standout other than the Viper ACR is really the Corvette Grand Sport. To be a tenth of a second off the Porsche 991 GT3 RS is incredible. Honestly, it is highly commendable. GM deserves a ton of credit for packing so much performance per dollar into the Corvette. Porsche even with all their fancy technology and a car at more than double the price can not pull ahead. Time for a GT2? Here is the full list of laptimes and the historical comparison although many of the previous laps are before a repaving of VIR so this is not exactly apples to apples. Videos of the laps and a list of vehicle weights from lightest to heaviest are below. Lap Times: 2:44.2 2016 Dodge Viper ACR 2:45.1 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB 2:47.0 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 2:47.1 2017 Corvette Grand Sport 2:47.4 2016 McLaren 570S 2:50.2 2017 Acura NSX 2:51.8 2016 Mustang GT350R 2:52.9 2017 BMW //M4 GTS 2:54.0 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 2:54.8 2017 Chevrolet Camaro V8 1LE 2:56.1 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus 3:01.9 2016 BMW //M2 3:03.5 2016 Dodge Charger Hellcat 3:03.9 2016 Focus RS 3:04.0 2017 Chevrolet Camaro V6 1LE 3:05.9 2016 Lexus GS-F 3:07.7 2016 Audi TTS Curb Weights (pounds): Porsche Cayman GT4 - 3058 Porsche 911 GT3 RS - 3155 McLaren 570S - 3189 Audi TTS - 3223 Viper ACR - 3400 Ferrari 488 GTB - 3428 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport - 3445 Ford Focus RS - 3451 BMW F87 M2 - 3455 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE - 3516 BMW F82 M4 GTS - 3538 Ford Mustang GT350R - 3718 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE - 3743 Jaguar Project 7 - 3766 Audi R8 V10 Plus - 3771 Acura NSX - 3854 Lexus GS-F - 4132 Dodge Charger Hellcat - 4564 Tesla Model S P85D - 5010 Historical Data: Videos:

    So, it's been a few weeks now running these bad boys. And all I can really say is WOW. Going from my dying turbos to these was obviously a night and day difference, but where these puppies are shining are in the top end. They just don't stop. I'd like to first off thank those involved for helping bring everything to life. Steve @ European Auto Source (Has done all my aftermarket install work on this car, and has provided unparalleled support in terms of sorting out issues and getting installs done in neck breaking time) Jesse @ PURE Turbos -- Aside from obviously providing me with these bad boys, not only tuned my car remotely while dynoing at EAS, but also provided tons of support outside of the scope of what he should have provided. Customer service level definitely over 9000! Steve @ Fuel-It Jake @ Motiv Little overview of my car 2010 335i 6AT PURE STG2 Hybrids ER Competition FMIC w/CF Shroud ER Competition Oil Cooler TFT Inlets w/2in adapter for turbos Vargas Hotside Silicone CP Macht Schnell 3in kittyless pipes Vanguard v2 exhaust Motiv Port-Injection BMS Port-Injection control Fuel-It STG3 Dual LPFP Fuel-It Upgraded Lines from tank to engine bay JB4 G5 ISO w/anti-lag MHD e85 BEF for Hybrid Turbos/PI using 100% E85 There's a long list of other mods I have done but don't really pertain to power, if you'd like to know I'll be happy include them in the thread. Currently also have-- WaveTrac LSD DSS 1000HP Rated Axles Defiv Diff Lockdown Brace Suspension overhaul and much more. Down to the good stuff. Unfortunately I don't have logs, still waiting on Steve to email them to me. I have video of the dyno process I will upload and link to this thread. With the help of Jesse's remote tuning we were able to get it up to 630WHP. Shop temps were at 92* / 26% humidity. At 26/27PSI we put down 624.9WHP, consequently we tried upping it to 30PSI and only netted 630WHP. Unfortunately there was just too much heat soak and we decided to call it a night at that. Had an opportunity to really put it through its paces on the streets at 26PSI @ 70* outside temps, and man does this thing fucking move! Unfortunately, I'm already getting trans slippage so 2nd and 3rd are limited while the remaining gears go to 26PSI. I have some videos, crappy short cell videos, that I can post of runs with various vehicles. I do have plans to go back to EAS to redyno when temps are much cooler and hopefully turn the boost all the way up. Definitely have plans to beat Lucas' numbers on the dyno. Sorry, Lucas! And hopefully with the help of Jesse @ PURE we will achieve some great numbers with finer tuning. As for transmission woes--salvation is on the way. I have on order one of the beta units of Propulsive-Dynamics built transmissions which I should have shortly. Once that's done and installed at EAS, should be able to get it to the track and put it through its paces as well and see how it performs in the 1/4 and overall street usage. More updates to this page to come, logs to be added, videos, and pictures. Thanks for taking the time to read. As far as satisfaction with the Turbos, bar non PURE is the way to go if you're deciding on a hybrid turbo setup. Hands down best customer service, great price, and a beautifully performing product with plenty of support. Updates soon!

    As many know shortly after finishing my built N54 e92 project (LINK), the car was stolen. While I was able to recover the car, it was severely damaged (body, suspension, interior, wiring, engine, etc.) and totalled. As this was my second E92, I've decided not to get a third and have moved on to something else. Nothing beats the balance of performance, looks, and daily driveability in my opinion. But, enough of dwelling on the negative. Here is a quick look back at the Ghost aka the Snow Leopard: (Mobile users can't see the embedded video can click here: http://tinyurl.com/zdskq2w). Special thanks again to BMS, VTT, Payam, CKI and the normal cast of characters here. I'll still post on IG www.instagram.com/the_ghost_enthusiast with projects that I may or may not have already started. :music-rockout: Cheers!

    Well, the F80 M3 is in the 10's on the factory turbochargers. This car has bolt on modifications and Toyo R888 rubber. Thanks to a solid 1.656 60 foot the car broke into the 10's in the 1/4 mile running 10.900 @ 125.34 miles per hour. Another pass on a slightly worse 1.670 60 foot resulted in a 10.982 @ 128.25. What is the mod list? FBO (full bolt on) + Methanol AWE heat exchanger E30 fuel BMS JB4 Toyo R888 Evolution of Speed intercooler Nothing crazy there just typical bolt ons for the BMW turbo world. It was obvious the F80 M3 and F82 M4 could run 10's it was just a matter of someone launching well enough to get there. Congrats to Mike_f80nyc and well done.

    Can anyone spot the reason for the failsafe here? ;)

    If you were to use individual throttle bodies on the N54 with the stock DME, you would have to adhere to the stock principle of sensors and stuff. Lets put performance gain discussions aside and discuss how the stock DME would handle things if the following were to be done: -Adapt the stock throttle body to drive six individual throttle bodies, retaining the original function. -One Map sensor before throttle bodies, for example inside a new plenum. -Second Map sensor after throttle body, the stock one is placed on sylinder six right? Lets place it there. -After throttle vacuum for diverter valve or blow off valve, either taken from one port after throttle body, or make a common small line from after all throttle bodies, what would work better? Would this have unwanted effects on the DME's control of things? I imagine that the second map sensor would have a much more fluctuating reading when in NA mode. This because at part throttle there would be a much smaller volume for the cylinder to pull vacuum on, causing a spike during the intake stroke, but then again a much smaller volume to full during the other three strokes, causing a much lower vacuum. This is purely out of interest, and trying to understand how things work. Any opinions?

    So far there is only this teaser photo to go on but it's a hell of a teaser. This is a top mount single turbo E92 M3 S65 V8. The fabrication work was done by JC Fabworks. This is the first and only top mount single turbo S65 V8 that exists and Gintani told BimmerBoost a top mount single turbo setup could not be done. Gintani is the only other tuner bringing an S65 V8 turbo kit to market but their setup is a more traditional bottom mount twin turbo design. It has also been in development forever and still is not on the market. BimmerBoost sampled the Gintani twin turbo setup way back in 2014 and it is supposed to go on the BimmerBoost.com project M3. It is great to see competition and another option on the market. There are many question marks however such as pricing, power, tuning, etc. How much boost? What turbo? What fuel? Who is tuning it? What is the cost? When will it be available? A teaser photo does not answer these questions. Formula Autohaus states this kit will be available for sale through their Las Vegas location. We await further details but congratulate them on doing what many said was impossible.

    pits200 started a thread GC Install on XI Update in N54
    Couple updates, install should hopefully be done in the next few days. Oil pan gasket was replaced, you can see the how much heat this engine produces. While I never had to add oil during the 5k mile change intervals, it was worth it to fix the problem while replacing the turbos. You can also see the ridiculous design of the axle running through the oil pan, not sure if that's a common design among other car makers or limited to BMW. I have the PI kit installed but don't plan on running for a few weeks till I can tune for straight 93, then get an e25 tune runnign. Once I get those tunes squared away I'll have Trebila help with a 100% e85 tune. I'll be excited to see what the upgraded transmissions can do once there are a few miles on the kits as I imagine to be needing one in the near future.

    Last thread didn't work out with Google Drive photos past about 30min LOL. So here we go again! Hello all, yes I'm the lucky guy that got a set of GCs for free and I'm here to share my experiences with them with all of you! As you know, the vehicle these turbos are going on is a 2009 Z4 sDrive35i. This model has DCT and the executive ivory leather trim. My woman drives this nearly everyday for work and for a while it was setup with DCIs and a JB4, then had a MHD-based backend flash added. At some point I traded the JB4 for a set of BC coilovers that never made it onto any car as I went with a special buy of Ohlins R&T on my E90 instead. As part of this package, I also bought a set of VTT inlets/outlets since they are properly matched and it's just a very convenient time to install them. So it's now mostly stock with a basic tune via MHD and DCIs. Car has super low miles and has never had any problems like oil leaks, smoke, etc. I've maintained it quite well! So the other day this heavy-ass box showed up. I ended up opening it to figure out what the hell this was all about. Tony and Chris, these things are gorgeous! Can't wait to install them. Install progress is ongoing and I'll be posting an update in just a moment.

    Shift bog not everyone has it go look and watch some races on youtube and see so many MT losing lol. You'll definitely lose with a slipping trans, 5k for an AT that doesn't have much more head room than an oem AT it's money wasted. We'll see where Nizpro comes in at after shipping......haha

    Huge teaser, but it will be interesting to see if they are able to get it running. Literally the only info i can find online is this picture.

    AWSAWS started a thread Race fuel vs E85 tune in N54
    Hi N54 experts, I wanted to ask how would a tune for race gas differ from a tune for E50? Vanos, AFRs, timing etc. Could you run race fuel with an E50 tune? Thanks

    I figured I'll give Energy Suspension liquid urethane a try. I made 2 mounts so if anyone is interested send me a message and we'll see what we can work out. I used the 80A formula. 80A - Even trade off between performance and vibration when it comes to motor mount inserts. This formula is the most popular for it's ability to significantly increase vehicle performance while still allowing some small amount of flex in the mounts to keep vibration and noise to reasonable levels Here are some quick pictures.

    PTF (Pro Tuning Freaks) is working on their boodmod3 software which is expected to shake up the BMW F-Series ECU flashing market. Why? Because the software will allow more control as well as the ease of flashing your ECU from home. OBD-II flash compatibility is being worked on although we will have to wait and how is supported in the final product. While PTF works on bootmod3 they have some promising results to share from a tuned S55 motor. This is a stock car only with different air filters: 91 horsepower at the wheels and over 100 lb-ft of torque at the wheels gained on 93 octane pump gas. All with an OTS (off the shelf) map: bootmod3 is shaping up very well and with OTS maps and the ability to get custom tunes with OBD-II flashing, what is there not to like?

    516 rear wheel horsepower is an incredible number when you factor in this is naturally aspirated horsepower from a 5.0 liter S85 V10 motor. In other words, over 100 wheel horsepower per liter. Evolve's tuning is displaying incredible efficiency out of the vaunted V10 BMW M powerplant. What are the modifications? Evolve Alpha-N tune Evolve long tube headers Supersprint full exhaust Eventuri intake Underdrive pulley 93 octane pump fuel 516 rwhp Dynojet standard correction Kind of makes you wish BMW stuck with the motor. With a pair of turbos the sky's the limit.

    Same dynojet last July in fairly warmer Temps I dynoed at 442/507 on e60.. no meth or inlets this morning now with 50/50 meth and Aem 500cc nozzle and mmp silicone inlets dynoed at 437/498. only other change made between dyno's was going from 255/40/17 conti DW to 275/40/17 nt555r and mfactory Lsd dyno graph attached and today's logs below http://datazap.me/u/msport335/mhd-e6...og=0&data=4-22 Here is last years Dyno logs http://datazap.me/u/msport335/mhd-e6...og=0&data=4-23 pretty much identical Dyno graphs even though I'm running more boost up top now due to the inlets I'm stumped....could the drag radials have robbed that much power? even being realistic I was aiming for at least 460whp

    Just a quick pull by a single turbo BMW 335i against two very fast cars. The BMW is running a Precision 6766 turbocharger at 34 psi on C16 leaded race fuel. This is a 6-speed manual transmission car and the owner states it is probably making close to 800 at the wheels. The Mustang GT has a On3 Performance twin turbo kit and is somewhere in the 750 wheel horsepower range. The MKIV Toyota Supra is a single turbo conversion with 700+ horsepower at the wheels. The 335i gets an early lead but the Supra and Mustang claw back hard. They both pull past but the Mustang is ahead. The cars are fairly close to one another but considering the 335i on paper has the power advantage it is somewhat odd it gets pulled up top. A nice pull regardless with some fast cars. 335i specs: 6766 1.15 ar 34 psi c16 6mt
