EAS never called back? thats weird. Probably out of the ordinary. They are a very good shop. I'm planning to take my car there soon for some time on their dyno. Sounds like a perfect place to get ur rb's in and make sure it run's right.

Hit them up again
MAC335i is online now

I got my RB's installed at LTMW.

There are a few other places that I know that can do turbo swaps if you're looking for an alternative to LTMW:
1. EAS (you should try calling them again, they've always replied to my e-mails and calls)
2. Evolution Racewerks
3. So-cal Cobb (I don't know how much they charge though)

That's me. LOL.

LTMW's taking care of it as we speak. The problem might have been a fitment issue with the AR Catted DP's which might have been one of the main culprits to the leak.

Even though this happened, I know LTMW will make it right and I trust them. They do have good customer service.

+1

I had my AWD turbos installed at the BMW dealer and that thing leaked like mofo. Rene@LTMW found the leak and took care of it right away. They also did my single turbo swap. No leaks, no issues.

Just CA 91 (probably the worst quality 91 pump gas) and no meth.

And I thought about doing a E85 mix, but the closest pump around where I live is a 30 minute drive out of the way.

The reason no meth is because there's health and safety issues that I don't want to deal with. I use methanol at work already sometimes and it's not something I want sitting in my trunk for a few horse power gains.

u should try out some e85 honestly i think theirs no point of running rbs on 91 u only get around 430 im thinking but thats my opinion
im hoping i should be around. 490 with e30 mix
lmk how ur dyno goes so we can compare 335i
to 335is tuned by same shop ^_^

anyways hows ur car did they finish it btw?

Not sure if they finished it yet, since they were working on another car yesterday. It should be done by Monday if anything.

As long as I can get around 430-450 whp, I'm happy.

Maybe when I move in a couple months, I would do the e30 mix since I would be a few minutes away from the e85 pump.

Also, before you get too crazy about the e85, maybe you should think about upgrading your fuel pump as well. That can save a few headaches.

You could have gotten that kind of power on E85 if you were willing to use E85 as you stated..

Well, I can push it to 500 with E85. Hopefully, when I do decide to get E85 mix.
