don't upgrade the intake. It doesn't help anything, the stock one can push enough air for 400whp. upgrade the inlet pipe to the turbo. Quicker spool and a little more power!

Question Stock Turbo N55 pushing 22 PSI at 6k RPM???

My friend just upgraded to a BOV instead of the stock DV and now he can push 22psi at 6K rpm on a stock turbo? What's going on here haha. He sent me a log and it's actually pushing 22 at 6k.

Thanks

Also, I just installed a injen intake that I had from a while ago. I can hear a boost leak through the intake. But there's no boost leak from the boost leak tester?

Any ideas. Wastegate, or DV?

Need to replace my turbo... Looking at used ones on eBay. Found one off a 535i x drive with a part number different than the 135i turbo. Is anything actually different or will it work?
