I've been following your progress on your turbos and inlets. Looks impressive and I'm eager to pull the trigger on them soon.
Quick question for you, your original post on the 1st page of this thread displays the power steering reservoir directly besides the coolant tank. However the picture posted above shows the power steering reservoir attached close to the manifold. For the inlet kits you sell, where will the power steering bracket and power steering reservoir be located? As the original pic shows on the 1st page or as the picture above displays?

I need to update the pictures in the first post. When I first released the kit it was with the 335D coolant tank and PS reservoir next to it. The issue with the 335D tank is that it would not fit all aftermarket chargepipes. I revised the kit then and made it so that it would reuse the stock coolant tank and now works with all aftermarket chargepipes.

the picture in post 266 is accurate and the one in post 1 is not accurate anymore. Will change it later.

Those filters look a little small. What size are they? Would they support the airflow of your new turbo setup you are releasing?

Yes. I have bench flow testing results with the filters and they can flow more than enough.

Any chance these would work on e60 535xi? Install will probably be a nightmare super tight engine bay, I had to have engine dropped just to install RB's with ********* DP's.

XI are a b**** to swap turbos nearly impossible to install by just dropping sub frame, I say nearly impossible because some folks have done it by dropping the sub-frame from one side (Oceans XI Wagon). In my situation we tried but it was a no go and the engine had to be dropped to do a thorough install of RB's and DP's.

Here's the thread from 2 years ago!

BUT it doesn't matter if below .4 Mach , smaller pipe is more pressure loss and less flow period, it is just fluid dynamics and physics, something you have shown to know little to nothing about in other threads I have argued with you, all you have is rule of thumbs using them out of context . Also, the ***** and website you quoted is dealing with the charge side, NOT the intake side so you are using out of context and completely WRONG! On the charge side you have to weigh benefits of bigger pipe against turbo lag due to bigger charge volume, that is where these guidelines help make good piping decisions, NOT on the intake side. nice try bro! And you are right about one thing, air does go slower in larger *****, good call bro! But you have no idea once again what you are talking about because if you knew anything about fluid dynamics for inlets of turbos, you would realize this is highly desirable because when air slows down in larger ***** or chambers it INCREASES pressure because of this little fluid dynamic LAW called Bernoulli's law which I doubt you know anything about. if what you said was even closely remote to true, you should call up formula one race teams with 500 engineers on staff for a couple cars and tell them "your doing it all wrong, your not following the rule of thumb!" LOL!!! Exhibit A, current turbo formula 1 intake below



Also Tony, so much fail in this statement! That guideline ONLY applies to the charge side of a turbo, NOT the intake side. You are completely wrong in applying this to the intake side. I will just chalk this up to you being ignorant and spreading miss information around. Just read the forum posts you linked to LOL, they are discussing the charge side, not the intake side! If this were true for intake side, then why would people ever run velocity stack filters right at the turbo inlet, duh! I hope no one falls for your crap, just blatant miss information.
So my question is, whether or not he is wrong. What will the difference be between 1.75" and 2" and 2.5" ?

I am on stock turbos.

Does it fit on 535i?

Can someone post a dyi to remove the factory inlet on the 535?
It looks tight on the passenger side

Aluminum inlets won't fit 535 but my silicone inlets driver side will fit

I am about to order...Can someone tell me the power difference between the aluminum kit (which requires moving expansion tank, etc) vs. the silicone kit (which doesn't require moving any components)?

I would say you can make the same power with both, just a matter of preference. I like the silicone kit a bit more for the typical stock Turbo user looking for max power as a bit more reliable and easier to install. For plans to upgrade turbos, the aluminum kit is better as easy to upgrade the connection elbows to the turbos.

I went with the aluminum kit (even though it's a bit harder to install) as the ***** go directly to the turbos with very little bends or twists. I also ordered the aluminum outlets.

Would the aluminum inlets work with hybrid turbos (such as Hexon RR600)? Still not sure if I'm going with hybrids or stockers.

The aluminum inlets have a silicone elbow that connects to the stock housing that many hybrids use which is 1.75" connection. What connection size does RR600 have?

One nice feature of the aluminum inlets is they are easy/cheap to upgrade in the future by just swapping out the elbows in case your hybrid turbos have a different size connection.

The Hexon RR600 have a "stock" connection size of 1.81" per Hexon.
Slicksilver, can you confirm if you have the outlets in stock? And do you know when my order (placed last night) will ship out?

Outlets are due in March 15

Email me with order number and I will answer your other question.

Sorry, just saw this...
Still find it odd the engine needed to be dropped. What couldn't you access with just the passenger side subframe dropped (or complete subframe dropped), it sounds like inadequate tools for the job but still wondering what the specific issue was.

I love my inlets, I have never "tested" them but my engine runs strong and logs look good. As a bonus they make a lot of cool noises and are a unique custom built system.
