welcome! your products looks absolutely stunning!! although one key to success here would be affordability since most products for N54 is overpriced IMO

with that said... 2009 looks like a very promising year for N54 community!

yeah +1 to whoever that said upgraded turbos...a lot of people have been in the market for them but not a lot of tuners and vendors on here have them available yet...I think I can speak for most of us that we rather have a more branded turbo upgrade instead of the very few that have shops custom built a turbo upgrade for them and its great to hear more and more shops around in Chicago jump into the BMW N54 production fad

My mind is already racing with the possibilities that this may bring. I personally would love a 3" titanium exhaust, for less than $11,000. Also some true full 3" DP's to go with it.

I bought an exhaust from AMS for my EVO IX MR and it was one of the best build exhaust I've seen in a while. It made my car run great and faster of course. So when are you guys making an Exhaust for the 335i's? I would love to have your products on my car.

Btw Welcome and I wish you as much success here as you had in evolutionm.net and socalevo.net

AMS definitely builds some nice products. I'm hoping they can move the N54 tuning scene to the next level. Even if they only make half the progress in twice the time as they did on the Evo we'll still be in good shape.

I forget the exact time frame but, it was not very long after the Evo X came out they already had the head off looking at porting and valve sizes. We need some of that around here.

welcome AMS. i'm a big fan of the many things you've already accomplished...especially in the EVO scene. although i'm not an N54 guy myself, i'm an avid enthusiast...and as you can see from my sig, i have an affinity for inline-6 twin turbos . anyways i'm looking forward to the products and services that will hopefully set you apart from everyone else in the N54 scene.

DAMN ERIC!! It's about time man, ever since I sold the Evo and went BMW, I've been having turbo withdrawals...

There is definitely a lot of room here, currently there is the usual bpu parts, but there is a lack of turbo upgrades, tuning choices and FUEL!!! Damn the FUEL! So I've been waiting it out to see if there is anything concrete coming out, but damn it, am I glad you guys stepped over.

All the AMS parts I had on the Evo were always top notch and quality was never a problem. I have one main request, keep the prices AMS style, don't go overboard with us!!

Glad you guys are over here, later man!!!

By the way I am surprised you guys didn't pick up an awd 335, LOL.....

AMS took the Evo scene to a whole different level.
Just think about when Evo first came out in 2003, achieving 400whp was a VERY big deal. Now, 400whp Evo is around every other block.

It's just a matter of time until they do the same with 335i scene.

AMS here and Evom.

We need a fuel system upgrade to handle those aftermarket turbos you're talking about. The factory fuel system is at maximum even with bolt on mods.

There are a ton of intakes, exhausts, intercoolers on the market... And a ton of 12 second BMWs. In my opinion, you need to go to the untapped part of the market and do a manifold for twins and a manifold for a decent sized single.

Sort out a fuel system upgrade, guys! We need it.

Oh, and welcome to N54 world.

Definitely number one in my book right now.....

Eric,
Turbo wise, are you guys thinking of doing a single set up, twin set up or its just in the air for now?

Thanks and I really can't wait for the parts to come.....

AMS is amazing. They make the world's fastest Mitsubishit evo's. Your evo with the GT42r is insane. I can't wait to see what you guys at AMS are going to do for the n54.

Right now we are not sure, it really depends on what the car calls for.

Please just come out with a custom flash soon for a already heavily modded car (DCI, DPs, FMIC) and stump the problem of Direct injection which will be associated with bigger turbos..........

Start working on the fuel system first, that may take a while. We need a modified or replacement high pressure fuel pump among other things for the fuel system.
