Default FBO M235i, what's next? - 07-18-2016, 10:47 PM

I have a M235i EWG with JB4 runing map 5, *****ted **, BMS intake, ER FMIC, OCC and chargepipe.

What would be the next step? Would you guys suggest to try a custom map setting?, turbo upgrade or a fuel it kit? We don't get E85 around, just 93 pump gas

You need higher octane so if you do not have E in your location I would invest in a methanol kit. After that I would be looking at a bigger turbo.

Get more octane as you'll be octane limited very soon and methanol injection is a solution if you don't have race gas or ethanol. Meth injection also helps with fueling which you'll need if you plan to push further as the F series n55 have really weak hpfp's. After that go for a pure stage 2 turbo as stage 1 isn't worth it plus you save on labour if you change your mind in the future.
