Let me rewind - I know a few folks are working on N54 upgrades (turbo(s) and manifold) Not just an upgraded stock unit like Rob Beck and others offer. One SHOULD drop their parts at the SEMA show. I think that guy will start on N55 upgrades shortly after.

Thx guys.

Brandon: if all goes as planned emortal.co is going to shoot the E36. Excellence will follow.

BBS: AWE are friends. That could be fun We can even get Fabspeed in on it...though it will be hard for us lowly BMW guys to hang with turbo Porsches and 458 Italias
