    Jeez. Judging by the attitude 'over there', is this kit going to become a forum dividing line or something? Serious asshattery over there.

    Direct port meth would be the way to go if you could tune it:

    Although port injecting E85 is better in my opinion considering the fuel is coming from the tank, less lines, less maintenance, higher energy content than meth, etc etc. Wouldn't hurt to run a bit of meth for IAT and octane.

    Are you talking about running E85 in the tank the normal DI way and having a second set of port injectors for even more E85 at high load? Am I understanding this correctly?

    Correct. Either injecting using a secondary fuel rail through a new manifold, modified manifold, manifold/head spacer or the simplest way, a Throttle Body Spacer with a couple injectors mounted there. The last one is a solution I already have lined up to be tested as it is the simplest and least costly, has proven effective on other platforms and the closed loop DME will be good at adjusting trims for us. It does great when dumping methanol in. Increase fuel by boost, load, rpm and let the DME adjust the trims and other variables as it already has proven to do extremely well with methanol. Depending on the controller used, but it is highly tunable in how much extra fuel is added and I'm confident it will work well.

    Although, the pictures I posted were for methanol, obviously, as that is what was being talked about previously.

    had to chime in over there:
    tony, dont post $#@! else until you have your glory runs on full race gas and meth so the power curves, afr, timing, ect is dead on perfect. Thats how the single kit was marketed when it was developed so fair is fair. You have nothing to prove here IMO, 99 percent of these people posting didnt buy a single turbo solution and likely the same amount are not in the market for a stage 3 solution so dont let them piss on your parade. This kit is a tremendous achievement and will be the main choice for people looking to push this platform to the limits. I would be curious to see dyno results from the first week of tuning on the singles (pre production vs pre production) and I think the results speak for themselves. Also keep in mind that the tuning is being done remotely with limited time on the dyno. Tony keep up the great work, when your done with this end of the project and have time to look into the 135i fitment I am greatly interested.

    Remember I posted this to the e90post crowd, here at least the discussions are more technical and productive. I just couldnt read any more $#@! over there and be silent.

    Your hate against Shiv is getting $#@!ing ridiculous .
    IIRC, he didn't complain that suspension mods weren't included but rather that Shiv marketed the ST as a complete solution. Shiv's major argument was that you could simply slap on a ST and dust Veyrons. His point was that to take advantage of the ST, you would need serious suspension mods, LSD, etc. Also that Shiv's test car was outfitted with such and therefore not an accurate representation of what you can expect if you only buy a ST kit.

    Now note what Vargas included in the OP of his Stage 3 pricing thread: "Please note: This is a full bolt on turbo kit with everything needed to install these turbochargers on your vehicle. This does not include any tuning or other upgrades you should perform to your car to take advantage of this turbo upgrade. This includes but is not limited to clutch, intercooler, charge pipe, exhaust, etc. Also keep in mind we are using Garretts HP numbers they released with the turbos. What you will get on your own vehicle of course is 100% based on your tune, supporting mods, fuel etc."

    Notice the difference in approaches here?

    oh god, you should $#@!ing assume you need suspension mods no matter what if you want to fully take advantage of any big power mods. People crying about not being told in a disclaimer that they should upgrade suspension are just looking for something to complain about and are being 100% ridiculous.

    I mostly agree, but it was indirectly assumed with his kit you could pretty much run 10's, but there was some serious suspension stuff going on, like specialized ohlins or something, I can't remember. And its Shiv's reputation for small amounts of grey area deceit that they are picking the bone on.

    I agree on both counts. But Shiv was being equally ridiculous with his exaggerated promises and usual BS. That's what some people argued about. And then the banhammer fell hard on both the trolls and the decent forum members.

    Nothing beats meth but nitromethane. E85 is probably better for cooling through the DI system than meth through a port fuel/TBI setup, but meth would still make more power (higher energy content per lbs of fuel, just takes much more fuel). If you run true E85 I'd be shocked if you need meth for IAT and octane, even with no intercooler. For those without E85 availability, methanol will still rein king. I think the supplemental fuel setup would be THE thing to have for cars with access to E85.

    Well, asides from any HPFP magic Tony can work out. That would be best.

    Suspension mods? I am trying to remember what somebody said about those that was epic and the same way I roll, it went like "I will make as much power as the engine and tune is content with making, and if the suspension doesn't like it, well that's just too bad for the suspension".

    I guess nobody here has every tried to drag an old chevy with a big blower sticking out of the hood. Suspension? lol. Just shackle it down.

    What I bit*h*d about & got banned for when the ST god whined to the site owner is not that they were not included in the kit but that Shiv was saying you did not need them. Best your get your facts straight so you don’t look too stupid.

    You might have noticed or maybe you didn't that Vargas listed what "supporting" equipment was recommended including flywheel, clutch etc. Shiv was & still is saying a stock suspension is OK. Hating Shiv would be to much of a effort on my part. For me thinking he is a major league Asshat crapping over the new package fits better. Click here to enlarge

    again... who cares what "supporting" mods are suggested. Use common sense. You're buying a turbo kit. You can drive the car with stock suspension just fine, but if you want to maximize the potential you upgrade the suspension. Same goes for a lightly modified or even a stock car. I had coilovers on my car before pretty much anything else. You are only complaining about this non-issue because it's Shiv. On any other platform this kind of $#@! is just assumed.

    do you need disclaimers about other common sense items in your life... or do you get by just fine?

    Vargas Stage III Turbo upgrade for 335/135 N54 motor hits 572 wheel horsepower on 91 octane pump gas (no meth injection) with Cobb flash

    Well here are some results for the Vargas Stage III upgrade that has caused the N54 forum section to basically be engaged in chaos for the past few months. From accusations of vaporware, to comparison to single turbo upgrades, to countless other arguments the day has come and the Stage III Vargas Turbo upgrade dyno'd on 91 octane with no meth 572 horsepower to the rear wheels. This is with a Cobb flash tuned by BimmerBoost vendor Pro-Tuning Freaks.

    Click here to enlarge

    Impressive? Yep, sure is and this seems to also be a 91 octane pump gas only world record for the N54. Now keep in mind this is just the beginning. What will it do with meth? What will do on E85? What will it do with race gas and big boost? What about different turbos? Sky appears to be the limit but for now this kind of performance on pump gas sure is a big boost (hah, get it?) to the N54 scene.

    Congratulations to all involved, Vargas Turbo Tech, Pro-Tuning Freaks, Cobb, and just the N54 community as well. The impossible just became possible. Pictures, video, and dynograph below.
