Interesting

But I love the fact that each turbo now has a more defined workload, the handover from one turbo to the other more detectable in the gathering burst of acceleration that arrives at 1600rpm and then kicks hard at 4000rpm.
Mmmm ... The 335i has parallel turbos, not sequential ... unless something has changed ? Or the road tester is away with the fairies.

Aye.

This is exactly why I had a pop at Evo a couple of months ago.

The reviews are like Aeros - light and full of fucking holes!!!

The Morego kit sounds interesting as they seem to have gone for the simplest set of mods they could in a strange order... I would have assumed Stage Two would be intercooler time!

I will certainly bow to the greater technical knowledge most on here have. I actually thought that the 335i did have sequential turbo's. I recall from reading reviews before I bought mine comments about one small turbo and one larger one in sequence which largely removed any lag.

335i has turbos that work in parallel where each turbo supplies forced induction to 3 cylinders... The 335d however has the configuration you described.

No lag due to the size of the turbo's

Agreed - this is important for the logevity of the turbos. The right intercooler (with 1psi less pressure drop then stock) will actually allow you to run almost 13psi (0.8 bar + 1psi = 12.6 psi) with a tune and keep the 335i turbos working within stock parameters. At our altitude and typical ambient temps this is good for circa 380 bhp. I would also recommend an upgraded intake as per their stage 3 package.

By this rationale, 1 psi above stock parameters will enable you to break into 400bhp.

Oh, and finally, I would go with catless downpipes (+ intercooler and intake) before I invested in a high flow exhaust as per their stage 2 package (presuming that this is a catback system). The cats in the downpipes are far more restrictive then the secondary cats in the exhaust.
