Thank you AMS for the review. it's extremely refreshing to have an honest comparison on the same dyno and reasonable claims for products. You guys should look at cp-e's cast bellmouth downpipes as an option. The fitment is tits.

sure....once its released

If you are in the area you can stop by and we can show you the very rough prototype system as it sits now. I can also give you a tour of our 20,000 square foot shop too, it's nice to see how things go from raw material to production

Same, I'm really excited to see what they can do with a single turbo kit. I love the stock twins don't get me wrong, I would definitely miss the instant torque, the feeling of almost being a V8 in response, but much like the Supra or Skyline its the sound of a single turbo car (even better with an external wastegate ) that is just to die for. The stock twins just don't give that shouting turbo straight-6 sound track I long for

I would love to see a fast spooling single turbo kit for 5-7k (less never hurts ) that pulls strong to redline and makes 500-600 whp with the right supporting mods. I think 500whp would be the perfect mark for and LSD equipped 335i. Supra levels of power are cool too I guess, just not as much fun to live drive on public roads.

I think we might be working on our turbo kit very soon here. She might go under the knife as early as next week.

With you guys working on a turbo kit would this mean a FMIC is also in the works?

I am so ready to see some AMS products, I have been itching to do some more power mods to my car but don't want to pull the trigger on anything until I see what AMS has to offer. I know quality takes time, but I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas...

Do you guys have any plans as far as Engine Management systems if you guys do a single turbo setup?

Also do you think our transmissions can hold it if there is a single turbo upgrade?
