2008 E93 335i Single Turbo Project

Name:  IMG_5468.jpg
Views: 1113
Size:  298.4 KBHi guys, I just got a 2008 335i E93 as a project car. I just got a donor 335IS. I plan to use the DCT, drive shaft, and rear dif from it and will be getting the Dodson clutches.

Edit: Sold my auto car and bought a 6spd. It kinda fell into my lap.

Mods I installed on the car in the past few weeks:
G5 JB4 w Race backend flash
Downpipes
Cone intakes
Running E35 mix

Parts I just ordered and ready to be installed:
DOC Racing 6266 Kit.
AD Engineering Port Injection (missing the fuel lines, open to suggestions)
BMS Meth kit
VRSF 7.5" Intercooler
VRSF Charge Pipe
Tial BOV
Engine gaskets, including rear, crank seals, valve cover gasket, oil filter housing gasket, oil pan gasket.

What do you guys recommend I do for fueling?
Anything else I should do/change when I pull my motor?

Update: Things I purchased after starting the tread, based on recommendations here.
Wavetrac LSD
Motiv Spec stage 3 full face clutch
Trans bushings
Diff brace
335IS Engine mounts. Both right side.
AD Engineering fuel lines and hardware
SS AIC for JB4 Controller
Brass clutch fork pivot pin


Thanks!

Doing the clutch, and changing all the gaskets on the engine. Going through everything in the engine bay to make sure everything is good.

I have the motiv and it works great. Check out my build thread. Has a ton of stuff. You may be the fastest e93 when done. There's only one other I know of in the hp neighborhood. Cashedoutbogan in Aussie. When I fry these turbos I'm looking at doc racing single next. But I hope that's in a few years. I'm going to dyno when it gets a bit cooler. Shooting for 680 rwhp/rwtq. I turned up the idle on mine 300 rpm to quiet down the clutch chatter. It grabs well and is maybe 20% heavier than oem but otherwise very similar to stock. Dual disc and smfw included made by spec and sold exclusively through Motiv.

I also went through your whole build. All the pages. Amazing work! The car is beautiful! I love your color combo.

I wasn't a chooser when it came to color on mine. I got mine because it landed in my lap. It came with a bad engine for $6400. But its fully loaded and I had the extra engine from my parts IS. So kinda would be a sin not to take it. Glad im not building my other auto vert anymore.

I'm not really going after a certain HP range at the moment so I went with the 6266, but im sure ill be addicted soon. Best of luck with your build.

Thx for the kind words. Its rated 1,000 hp. $1,850 its pricey but quiet, includes everything including flywheel, and is as close to stock feel as you can get that holds the power. It's been rock solid for me. Ill get sone new pics once trunklid arrives and they install it and the 1m bump.

I have the DocRace kit and went Fuel-It PI w/ Stage 3 Platinum. The M Racing dual clutch kit is very nice and the vendor is very responsive on here.
