I'm thinking its the wheels. Not easy to get 20's going. That's the one difference I would have made if I had special ordered the car, smaller wheels.

Its fun to play with. Wish my times were better, but the dang X3 won't launch.. the throttle is dead off the line, even brake torquing.

The service history scared me away. Never had the timing belt/chain done, burning a quart every 1500-2000 miles, and makes a squealing noise at idle. I just couldn’t do it. I’ll keep looking for...

Its getting painfully obvious that this could end up being a money pit. Would be great if I could convince them to do the leak down, but I doubt they will on a cheap car. Maybe I could find a lower...

Right, but hopefully some of it would go into the can instead of through the turbos, intercooler or wherever its going.

So Rob, would your DIY Stage 1s be better than these if I jump on the 535 and the turbos end up bad? Price seems pretty close.

That’s not something I can do at the dealer before I buy though. Do you think this is safe to buy, or should I stay away?

Quick question, oil use

Hopefully you guys can help, because this is my first N54 experience. The 535 im looking at buying has 134k miles and the exowner is telling me it uses about a quart of oil a month. Is that normal...

If I buy the 535 I've been looking at I'll probably put these on. They gotta be better than 135k mile stockers, and a far more suited to a beater than $2-3k higher end turbos.

A pair of 93mm tips should fit without hitting. I just checked the spacing on the X3 and thats what will fit. I'm guessing BMW uses the same spacing on their mufflers.

They had a real hard time getting it to fit on my 335GT. They had to move the AC Compressor to get it on. Is that whats keeping the pipe in that angle? Something on the front of the engine?

Maybe you could do a big oval encompassing both outlets? I was looking at something like that for the X3, but BMWs spacing seems to be different than any other manufacturers have.

It will not. The E70/71 and F15/16 share a chargepipe, but thats it. They aren't the same as anything else.

Its 95 RON. Thats about equal to 91AKI. I don't think I'd even run Map 2 with that crap, forget about 7.

How’d you pay? I’d say to file a PayPal claim or do a chargeback on your credit card. You will need proof of not getting what was agreed upon though. Emails, PMs, texts, etc.

Around 16psi and 9.5 of timing on Map 2.

Map 7 made almost 18psi, but only 7.5 of timing. 8whp and 3ft/lbs less.
