    I saw that, too. Still a great deal. Competition is making this stuff less and less expensive.

    So perhaps I missed something again? Did the downpipes fit or did your mechanic have to do some "clearancing?" I have heard downpipes on the 535xi are a huge PITA but it sounds like they're worth it...

    Great time! I have to know as I have the same car, vrsf downpipes on a 5 series xi?

    Nevermind. I did not realize these existed. They're now on VRSF's site. Awesome!

    I also agree with Twisted Tuning on this statement. IMHO, Not worth the risk to push any turbo beyond its efficiency range for any length of time, period.

    That being said, what is the safe PSI...

    Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done, IMHO.

    That's what I thought but sometimes the 535 gets no love. Thanks!
  8. Slight screw up on my part...Is there a fix?

    My 2009 535 got totaled when an old guy ran a light and t-boned me, I took my cryogenic frozen rotors and pads off the car as they only had 500 miles on them. I forgot to take the cable that...

    I know they're not listed in the announcement but is this compatible with a 535?

    Thanks!

    This is great news. Looking forward to testing, results.

    No offense but I would not run 24 psi on stock turbos and expect them to live very long even with inlets.

    I am sure I would get an itch to turn them up every once in a while but am very interested in close to stock reliability. This seems like the ticket.

    Tony,

    A question I have is, it sounds like these may have a longevity advantage over stock frame turbos simply because they are purpose built and not modified stock housings. So even if they are...

    Perhaps some independent dynos will back up Maximum's results. Until then, like most here, I just don't see these gains as realistic/repeatable.

    It's pretty crazy to me that someone would spend the time and expense to upgrade their turbos and not spend the money for quality motor oil.

    Was it smoking before the hybrids? Which hybrids? How's the PCV?

    Replacing turbo vacuum lines

    I have over 60K miles on my 2010 535 on the original vacuum lines. My 2009 535 vacuum lines lasted until about 54K miles so I think I'm living on borrowed time and it's time to replace them. I am...

    I will say this. The M3 and a 335 are two different animals, period. I can see getting an itch to go either way. The M3's handling makes it an E-ticket ride. The N54 is cheap to make go fast. No need...

    LaCross,

    There are 64 different ways to configure the turbos in this instance, not counting t-shirts, key chains etc. Since you're far more cerebral than I, I am surprised you didn't take a...

    I went to VTT's website. According to all the drop down menus, there are 64 different ways to configure Stage 2+ turbos. That's enough options to qualify as "custom" in my book. Dictionary.com...

    Is my COBB obsolete?

    I appear to be a bit slow to the party. I have a COBB V2 for my 2010 535. The car is stock, except for the Stage 1 Aggressive Tune . I also use is to check/clear codes on my car and the wife's 2012...
