Exclamation Options?

I'm only missing exhaust and charge pipe to be FBO. My stock dv are still running strong. And I like the stock exhaust sound. I was considering the afe power pulleys. Does anyone have these installed?

aFe makes pulleys for the N54?? And looking at your sig, you're already FBO because the aftermarket exhaust isn't worth much on the 3-series (only worth ~5-10 HP).

Until your stock CP breaks, there's no need to spend the money upgrading. BMS is just starting to sell a CP that utilizes a DV setup, so you might want to look into that.

I would STRONGLY advise against going with aftermarket pulleys. The pulley replaces the harmonic balancer and that's not a good thing. Especially when you consider how little gains you see.

Just get the BMS meth kit and enjoy the ~50whp bump.

Brand new so prob not any reviews over here (more likely to find some on N54Tech)... Knowing BMS though & their customer service, it'll be a quality piece. Kinda wish I waited & bought it since the DV placement is better then on my ER CP

BMS CP


ER CP (see the angled DV connection)
