New N54 60-130mph record, 5.4s

Most of you have seen the build thread on our 135i, JB4, VTT motor, GC2 turbos, Fuel-IT PI & Stage4 system, etc. Well Tony decided to take a shake down pass before shipping it down. Due to traction just left it in 4th gear and floored it. Results were impressive to say the least, a new platform record. :burnrubber:

Does it still count as an MT record if you don't shift? :lol

Wow! This thing is going to be a rocket in roll races!

Payam @ BMS 10-12-2018 08:22 AM

That log looks fantastic, holy crap this car is a rocket!

Love it.

NA55 10-12-2018 08:03 PM

wow.. nice 60-130 time..
the boost seems to ramp up much more aggressively than the 759 whp dyno log..
how much power do you think it would make with these boost settings?
what type of tire and size are you using?

Terry @ BMS 10-12-2018 08:25 PM

Power probably the same, torque higher. Maybe would hit 775whp in that colder weather.

It has the 275/40R17 Hossier drag radial tires.

luchocamp 10-13-2018 03:35 AM

uff record just in 4th gear .... way to go

NA55 10-13-2018 11:06 AM

are you going to post this run to the dragy leaderboard?
Its always good to see all the data and try to learn from it.. :burnrubber:

Terry @ BMS 10-13-2018 11:23 AM

Tony recorded the run, not sure if he will or not. I don't see why not though. :)

cebrailbakan 10-13-2018 04:00 PM

What timing did you target in this log Terry ?

icewall 10-13-2018 06:23 PM

congrats! I love my GC 1.0 turbos. been beating the hell out of them since the day they came out but on a stock motor i limit it to 650whp and ramp up boost so i dont bend rods.

on my very first dyno run i hit 640wtq on a mustang dyno by accident (overboost)!!!

It's in the log! :)

You exactly know thats no new record or would you tell that only 4th gear record? :D:D:D
Stop to share false things.

Thanks from Germany ;-)

So, what's your current opinion on ST vs twins Terry?

He still doesn't have his car back, but Terry has always been a fan of twins. He likes the simplicity of it and that it can essentially look like a stock car IF we ever wanted to take it to that. It's already a racecar so no matter lol.

5.17sec 60 to 130mph is crazy fast ... keep reading this thread :burnrubber:

It was the record as far as I know but I don't follow those things that closely. Link to your results? Anyway the thread is less about the record and more about the performance potential of twins. :)

My mostly objective opinion so far:

1) I prefer the stock look under the hood.
2) I prefer having the o2 sensors back after the turbos in each bank where I don't have to worry about them going out or melting during longer runs.
3) I like having the torque and faster spool down low which allows things like 4th gear 60-130mph pulls and more predictable power when peddling it.
4) Can't argue with the lower cost and simplicity of it.

The questions that need to be answered are how is reliability on GC twins like this vs. single kits? Does the extra top end potential of the larger single kits make up for the delayed spool they introduce? I don't foresee myself ever changing this car back to a single turbo kit, but we have Payam's 335i with an ACF bottom mount single kit. Maybe at NFZ we can get some side by side videos for performance comparison. :burnrubber:

ShocknAwe 10-17-2018 08:42 PM

Appreciate the answer man. Was planning on a bottom mount single but reconsidering given load tuning on these incredible twins.

Frikiton 10-18-2018 08:36 PM

Good job on those turbos Tony!

Yeah I'm happy with the change. If you really need 850whp or something then you'll need a single but you can run damn fast on 750whp+ with twins. And for $3k in an easy bolt in package. Can't beat that. ;)

$3k package?! omg that's a steal! how does that work out Terry?

Terry @ BMS 10-19-2018 12:46 PM

That's what GC turbos cost.

ShocknAwe 10-19-2018 01:20 PM

Pricing must be different direct from VTT. I looked yesterday and GC lites were ~3k without any of the required parts, GCs were more, 35 or 4k, can't remember.

Well I'm sure some ppl get discount especially when they're providing some feedback like Data, Dyno, Logs, 60-130, etc :burnrubber:
