Any plans on a new intake manifold, that plastic just looks out of place on a 650+ hp single turbo, haha.

Shiv said multiple times that he was furthering the n54 first then he would port over all of his work to the n55 platform, he's just finishing up his tweaks, and then he will head over to the "twin power turbo", so let's keep the tears in for a little while longer then you'll be going fast in no time.

Just got my E85 kit done. It's on a slightly reduced boost until I get a new clutch. But, holy crap. I had no idea the N54 could do this. Because it's AWD, it just rips through first and second gear with zero wheel spin, with all that power put to the road, as far as I can tell. I'll post something more in depth once I get a chance. Shiv rocks and FFTEC rocks, amazing service!

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.
I'm usually the one who does the injector swapping/coding so I can certainly help you with that if need be. I've also become an expert in swapping LPFPs. Did 4 in the last 8 days

N54 has been out a lot longer and proven itself more easily modified than the N55. You guys already have a single turbo. What ya complaining about?
