    Very interesting idea for a thread.

    None of those worked out but it appears HPF is the one now continuing to push.

    If I go back to an N54, it will be when there is a fuel solution. I am thinking a used E93 335is DCT.

    great find. i found it laughable unfor claimed tuning is not the issue. just proves his false assurances. hopefully HPF will pull through, if anyone can it's them. +rep

    so whats going to happen with all the money invested in upgraded turbos, tunes, DPs, etc...
    just dump it on the market at a loss and buy a single turbo kit?

    there's a much larger market for an n54 single turbo kit than any other platform hpf has in the works so unless a huge speed bump is hit with fueling you guys will have a single option within months.
    they've got the z4m plus pro-efi m3s taking up rack space right now.

    If HPF does bring big single option makes it to the market and does not carry the same price tag as its M3 products I am very interested. That said, a 996 TT is really catching my eye, damn they have some great value power kit options on that platform.

    Why is it so hard to solve the fueling issue, cant we just have a secondary injection system that runs standalone and let the stock system do what it does? $#@!, this isnt the first time it has been done, why is it so hard?

    That is what unfor was trying to do but apparently it just isn't simple.

    it won't be cheap. might as well start pcar browsing.

    but then again neither are mods for a 996.

    The 996 though can go way further than the N54.

    true but dollar for dollar a single tc n54 will pwn on a 996 with a similar budget for mods dont you think?

    No, not at all. The 996 turbo even before needing fuel upgrades will spank the a single turbo N54 if the N54 even gets that far.

    You will need the turbo hardware on the N54, fuel, tuning, etc., not cheap. For less money you can bolt in some cheap k16 hybrids on the 996 and walk away.
