    Looking good! FYI, MS109 has an octane rating of 105 (R+M/2) so you actually had a lower octane than what is calculated, around 96.5 if my math is correct.

    Anyone know if this is the highest recorded dyno pull for an N54? I have never seen higher. If there is one please let me know.

    Still need to get LSD, Diff lock down kit and upgraded axles.
    After that its off to the track.

    96.5 octane + Meth is what Tony is rounding up to 98 Click here to enlarge

    Ummmmm..... No he wasn't Click here to enlarge The Title specifically says "693 WHP / 572 WTQ - 98 Octane, NO Meth".

    There's no way to 100% confirm what the octane was because 109 was mixed with whatever, unknown amount of 91 in the tank, but it was def over any standard pump gas & shy of true Race Gas (100+).

    I think it's great & all that we're not hitting 700 WHP on a completely stock motor with a GTX Twin Turbo upgrade, but what's really going to make this an appealing upgrade (besides the price & retaining the OEM DME turbo setup so you can use any tune) is reliability and after prolonged use, if the OEM N54 internals can keep up.

    Are any of the tuners/vendors going to be opening up the motor after xxxx Miles to see if the rods & pistons are handling the power well, or are we going to go the "we'll known when something breaks" route?

    Well if it makes you feel any better, we have almost 5K miles on the car and have done Hundreds I mean HIGH hundreds nearing a thousand WOT pulls in 3rd, 4th, and 5th. The worst I had seen is a boost hose slip a bit and need a clamp adjustment, and a shredded Serpentine belt. We threw at least 200 runs at it this weekend. the last 50 or so 28 psi and over. The car never even puffed blue smoke once, nor did anything weird. The tunes we are running are safe and we get there very slowly. The reliability will continue to be proven but so far its more then proven itself, as we are pushing past where anyone has on boost, and power levels.
