Still had the sound when reverted back to completely stock. Traded it shortly after that. Now my 2007 335i with 70k (untuned) miles is completley quite. Very faint spool sound when cold. I really think the tune and maybe the other bolt ons (DPs) took their toll. I wonder how long the RB's or Vargas would hold up to the abuse. Hopefully longer than the stock units. Are there any improvement to specifically prevent this syndrome in the upgraded turbos?
Our upgraded thrust option will be able to take a lot more abuse before it starts to wear, and we all know abuse is exactly what upgraded turbos get. Its why people buy them to drive their cars hard, which is why we are taking steps to upgrade the internals to last longer.
