Default The N54 9 second barrier has been broken! - 05-26-2018, 05:50 PM

Congrats to Daniel Buchner of Simply Tuning in Australia who finally broke in to the 9s with his JB4 powered wicked fast single turbo N54! I know he's been at it awhile and finally hit paydirt.

The car is a 2006 e90 335i originally ZF 6 speed with 238,000km on the clock

Full list of mods:

Garrett GTX4202, Turbosmart 45mm wastegate
Custom highmount RHD manifold and 3.5" full turbo back exhaust. 3 mufflers
Bimmer life Audi R8 coil kit
JB4 with custom MHD back end flash E85 34psi
BKC FF intake manifold with 1000cc PI injectors
Turbosmart race port bov and turbosmart FPR 1200 fuel regulator
BMS PI controller
Custom "stage 4" bucketless intake setup with separate feed and return for PI
VRSF 7.5" race intercooler
Stock engine with PPM replacement pistons and rods
Custom Glide adaptor plate and custom converter 5500rpm stall
2 speed power glide, Reid cased, 1.80 billet gearset.
Powerglide yoke welded onto original tailshaft
Stock rear end, welded large case 3.46 diff
328i rear brake calipers with E39 rotors. suit 15x8 5.5bs wheel
275/50R15 Mickey Thompson ET street radial

All tuning and work done by Daniel Buchner at Simply Tuning!

Very impressive, 34 PSI on a 'stock' motor.

BadAss video. As I said, congrats to the owner. I do have to admit this to ME is not a true BMW 335I breaking into the 9s. Impressive none the less.

So what was the limiting factor that they finally got over? Transmission? Traction?

Can't believe that was with a stock rear end. Not even an LSD?

I don't believe over the last few years that power has been a limiting factor. It's mostly been about the drivetrain and getting the power down. Would really be nice seeing someone run 9's with a DD trans, not a powerglide.

here's the limiting factors up until now.

6at - works okay, doesn't launch perfect but main problem is typically failing once you're north of 600whp.

6mt - boggy shifts and really not a good transmission for banging gears fast.

this car 100% accomplished this because of the transmission swap.

I DD my car, so technically this is a DD trans. the only thing I change is the rear wheels. back to 19's with 265 semi slicks for DD duties. This is a true 9 second daily driven street car.

But, don't worry, there's only 10,000 people out there trying, and they're only .7 of a second off! It'll happen eventually.

101Duck reminding everybody SCOREBOARD.



Although I am legitimately interested to see how a Powerglide operates around town and on the highway. Any videos of that?

It's a big accomplishment, no doubt. It's great to see a 9 sec N54. We've all been waiting to see it for a long time now. I'm just surprise that you DD it. As chadillac2000 stated, in for more info on DD use. And as you stated, .7 off so pretty unlikely to get to 9's with our trans at this point. Thinking the happy medium is something like a 4L80E unless you can convince people a powerglide is the way to go for DD. Don't know enough about them to say either way other than they have always been primarily used for race applications.

Amazing times.

I'm not surprised a Power Glide could be DD. It's been done forever, people drove around daily with factory 2- or 3-speed trans all the time back in the early days of motoring. With that said, I'm also in for a video of a DD N54 Power Glide operating around town :D - curious to see.

Agree a 4L80E would be more user-friendly and preferable, of course.

4L80E is big and hard to fit.

I don't understand why a built 4L60E or even a TH350 or TH400 wasn't used instead.
