Actually 20.1 psi vs 17 psi at 6000rpm in 4th gear which is what gear the previous Dyno log was in (4th). And also more timing. We will see what this is worth on the Dyno tomorrow.

2-3 psi gain on the top end. Can't wait to see the results.

with higher timing and +2-3 psi, stock turbos should give +20, maybe +30whp.

the Kit look good with good price. I think it will sell well. I think people are willing pay money for a stronger material. $500 for two silicon ***** will not sell well.

Can you post photos of all the components included in the kit laid out next to each other so we can see what we are potentially buying? Thanks

Yes! If you can make this fit an E60, I'll add my name to the list right now.

Can send you any pictures you need.

Where are you located?

+1 for photos of the actual kit components. I was thinking that an intake kit ought to be made of aluminum. Light weight and plenty strong.

I'm in central IL, and don't really have the fabrication skills/time to design anything... but i will help someone else any way i can

I'm sorry I should have been more clear, I was asking the OP. I quoted you because we're both in the same boat.

Innovation and competition will drive progress. I see this as a great option for stock turbo and low end hybrids like VVT/Hexon. I personally would still go with TFT for RB and Stg2+ VVTs, but for a lot of people this will be a more cost effective solution. Nice work.

Well some not so great news guys. Was logging last night and the misfires I was having we're pretty bad and kept cutting off cylinders during runs/logs so I cancelled my dyno appt for this morning. I need to get those misfires solved before I can complete a dyno run. I was having them before the intakes went in but thought I had sorted them out by changing all my coilpacks. I have OEM spark plugs with 5-10k and I pulled all the plugs and they look fine. I thought it was "phantom" high RPM misfires because that's when it was happening before so I turned of misfire detection in the flash and was fine for a little while but now they are prevalent and pop up on much lower rpm. I've found with the N54, the more power you make, the more these kinds of issues pop up. I'm going to try going to .22 gapped NGK plugs and pulling the injectors to inspect them. Anyone know how to diagnose a bad injector that needs to be replaced?

Are you getting multiple misfires across multiple cylinders? When's the last time you got a walnut blasting?

Try the NGKs, they definitely helped me.

Also, do you have any plans on doing this inlet kit for an E60?

Good thing is I have a buddy here in Houston and his kit is almost done and he plans to do a before and after dyno. Last time he dynoed he was in the 430ish whp range on E85 blend no meth so pretty maxed out on stock turbos. He might dyno before me with my misfire issues FML

I am getting multiple misfires across cylinders.

I can do for an e60 but need someone to come by with one so that I can inspect and see if ot will fit or how it may need to be modified to fit. Anyone in Houston area and wants to come by for this, hit me up on the email.

I would definitely look into getting a walnut blasting done. Next step would be the injectors, I had to get them done around 55k.

Sadly I'm in New York, but perhaps we can find an E60 in that area.

That is a very good and proven location. Did you miss the RB dyno record? It is about both the flow and temps. Feel free to invent a better intake system It is harder than what you think.

This comment is funny. So what do you tell single turbos that put filters right on the turbo inlet and make all that power? Especially the ones that are bottom mount like Motiv with all that hot stuff right around it and with the N54 world record

EDIT: Motiv has an intake tube to get filter away from turbo but still in same location as my filters. But most other bottom mount turbo kits I have seen making big power has the filter right on the turbo right next to alot of hot parts.

I can't belive the amount of belligerence on these forums. Use the forums to better the community, this guy is taking a huge step in allowing us to purchase affordable yet effective kits for our vehicles. Show some support for the people who are trying to better the community.

First off, great job on getting a cost effective kit out there so quick. Well done sir.

Two questions:

The only way to run your kit is to go VTA on the PCV system?
Is there a reason for going VTA besides cost savings?

I prefer VTA and it was how I setup my car so that's what the kit has. VTA keeps any oil from going into turbos, intercooler, charge *****, boost sensor, IAT sensor, intake valves/carbon build up so thats why I prefer it. I'm sure someone could buy the kit and modify it to not be VTA with some AN fittings and lines and AN adapters from AD engineering if that's what they wanted to do. Not something I'm really interested in providing as would raise cost and the point of this kit is to keep the cost low like you said. Otherwise TFT kit is great as it is very well done.

Update: I bought new O2 sensors and also new NGK 5992 plugs that I plan to gap to .022". I am currently on stock plugs/stock gap with 5-10k mi on them. Also had the injectors scanned by BMW diagnositc tool and they checked out. Borrowed a boroscope to check out tomorrow if any injector is leaking after sitting for a while. Hopefully will have these misfires sorted soon and get to the dyno asap. Sorry everyone for the wait on the dyno.

Also, I plan to close the Group Buy on Feb 27 even if all the spots are not filled.

What exactly does this injector scan tool do? Do you know?
