    Click here to enlarge It's 4 pages, discussing how an external boost controller is (currently) needed for tuning the Vargas Stage 3s so you can run boost higher than 22psi. Please read next time before you make a quick judgement.

    Any estimates from any of you guys from Toronto are greatly appreciated Click here to enlarge

    I got my tracking as well! I'm dropping my car off this Friday, they are being installed this weekend. Things getting done:

    - turbos
    - water pump (93k on the original pump, doing this as a precaution while the car is apart)
    - spark plugs
    - all fluids
    - replacing vac lines again just to be safe
    - smoke test (just to be sure there are no rogue boost leaks)
    335xi (sold)

    It's tentatively scheduled for next weekend, the installer is squeezing me in between a couple 4G63 stroker engine builds. Estimated delivery date isn't until next Tuesday so in couldn't get it done this weekend anyway.
