I had a 35r on my last M3 and made a fat 500whp. It really is the perfect turbo for a street driven 3 liter.

Looking forward to updates

jpsimon, you better not go silent for weeks on end after these things are installed. Get the money ready for the dyno now so we can see results the day or day after its installed. lol. We always have to deal with these, 'unknown complications' which generally are there to hide performance results. I think having you getting this done is our best chance at not experiencing that. Drive it during the day to let the thing adapt and throw it right on the dyno to see the tuning power of the procede. No delays! I hope it pans out.

Sick build thread, and one of the cleanest 335s around. Can't wait to see the outcome once everything gets worked out. You'll be glad you went with EPL, great group of guys and top notch quality work.

Any chance you're going to be stopping by the shop these next couple of days?

Yeah the EPL guys rock, Dave is working on my car. I'll probably go down there today at some point, but I'll definitely be going down this coming week since it will be done then.

looks like fun... One thing I found funny is how EPL removed the turbos while the car was on jack stands but the shop Down4it took his car to had to "drop" the motor. Can't wait for next week to see some numbers.

Damn man, I didn't even get a chance to say what's up today lol. Sorry about that. Right when I showed up I went to go look at your car, but by the time I got talking to Dave, he said you were the one with the backpack that had just stepped out. Car's looking good though
