Thanks for posting Shiv. For those of us on the other side of the world it's great to see where your base is and what happens there.

We realistically have 2 N54 experts in Australia, a country which has a similar land area as Europe and even the states. Maybe you can send some $$$'s Adrian's way to set up something similar down here. *wishing* I am sure he would love to quit his day job!!

Excellent update. You guys are extremely busy. The old shop car is getting a complete make over with that cage.

Lol HPF would be boasting about their 1,000hp e46's and they wouldn't mention their n54 charge pipe, single turbo kit, or anything else that we care about. At least shiv gives us updates on the stuff we care about

Lmao but you did pull off the single turbo kit operating functionally unlike his so far...not to doubt him I would love to see more options for this platform but he is deep into M3's it would seem.

Saweeeet Email sent to Sales@vishnu.

Hopefully the guys at FFtec can swap in and code my single injector too!

Also would I need to update to a Rev3? Hopefully my 2.5 will work since i am not running meth.

You state this as if it's some type of insult? The N54 platform has a huge user base, so it just makes business sense to cater to where you can maximize your return. He's also been working on the single turbo kit and other stuff for a while for this platform.

I wouldn't say he's not looking at N55 stuff. I'm sure he's not prepared to openly discuss things they may be looking at but are not close to production yet(there's tons of good reasons why you wouldn't talk about that stuff), but let's be honest, N55 vs N54 aftermarket? The user base for N54's is just huge and more likely to be in cars that are being significantly modified. The N55 came out 3 years later. It's also not been quite as responsive to minor mods for huge power. That's another thing that makes N54 development more attractive to aftermarket tuners.

Plenty of companies are still looking at the N55, but it just doesn't make business sense to prioritize it over the N54 unless they find a new part/methodology that offers a similar price to performance ratio.

BMW needed a cheaper, less eager to make power engine to justify the aging M3. Thus the N55 was born.
