Default VRSF Aluminum outlets don't fit? - 10-26-2019, 03:32 PM

Pure stage 2 are going on the car now and the installer tells me the VRSF outlets don't fit. Where it connects to the turbo the angle is off by 30 - 40 degrees. Are we doing something wrong or is the fitment really jacked up on the ones I received?

That is a 335 pipe, you have 135 turbos. The 135/535 share the same turbo, I’ve looked for one for a 535, only VTT makes one. In my own opinion, the aluminum pipe was touching the turbo, so it wasn’t ideal to run, and after I installed a RB turbo shield, it was impossible. What I ended up was the oem rear pipe, VTT front pipe.

Thanks, that is what I thought might be the problem. On Extreme Power House's website, where I ordered these from, the description is that these fit 135, 335, and 535 with no distinction that there would be a different version for each. Sucks because im not going to pay to have these put on as a separate job, this was my one and only chance to do this with the turbo swap.

This is the product title on their website: VRSF N54 Aluminum Turbo Outlet Charge Pipe Upgrade Kit 07-13 BMW 135i/335i/535i/Z4/1M E82/E88/E89/E90/E92/E60

Like other have stated 335 is clocked different than 135/535. VTT makes the 535 but I believe VRSF now carries it too. I believe that’s what Tiago told me a few weeks back. Only thing I can say is the VTT ones are small in diameter compared to my vrsf ones on my 335. I wonder if it’s a clearance issue for 535 or if vtt just did small crappy diameter *****. So if vrsf outlets are same diameter as 335 I’d go that route

VRSF does have 535 outlets, i just installed a set on a E61 a few weekends ago tight but fit.
