    Mliners Custom Gintani S54 Turbo

    I just figured I would start a thread here since you guys are raping the pavement with e9x m3's, and now even a turbo'd e46 m3. Would it be possible to see some pics of the manifold on that e46 m3, and share the specs of what Gintani has done with it. Thanks for your time, and happy boosting. Click here to enlarge

    They abandoned doing a turbo application with the factory DME.

    I am waiting to see the finished product. I think i read that GINTANI finished the stand alone wiring and someone was brought in to tune the standalone as well. It will be great once its finished.

    Well thats abit different now. This is a turbo build they are working on because another shop couldnt get it done. I didnt see Gintani make mention that this setup was going to be a production model kit as a matter of fact the only thing we have here is a video of an exhaust. THats is nothing special. Now what we the people on the forums want to see is afew pics of what has been used so we can drool over it. Pretty simple I think at least. I understand Alex is super busy with stuff at the shop, but a forum with some many locals near that shop. Someone should be able to stop by for 5-10mins to chat and maybe take afew better pics of the setup. I dont think that is too much to ask here do you?

    I know what the exhaust manifold looks like. No pics though. It's a tubular manifold that was originally made for an M54.

    This project was started by Technik/RMS who wanted to mass produce a DME based turbo kit to compete w/ HPF. After months having his car laying around at RMS and nothing getting done, he came down picked up the car and dropped it off at Gintani. Once there, Gintani stripped down the car (removing anything RMS) and replaced everything down to the exhaust system. They tried tuning it on the DME, but were having issues so they switched to an AEM standalone.

    I saw the car on the dyno when they were still trying to tune the DME and numbers were impressive. The owner should have his car back shortly. In retrospect yes it would have probably been cheaper to go with an HPF Stage I, but this owner got taken with promises of a cheaper better kit. Live and learn.
