You don't need meth for them to run correctly. Mine are doing great with a JB4 tune and no meth. Either that's good news so you can run them, or it expands your target audience. I know a fair amount of people (not necessarily on this platform) that want max power, but refuse to use meth.

I believe he means that if you want to run the rb turbos the way they should be ran then your going to need meth

I think he means to say without addressing the fuel problems, it might be a waste of time. Meth or flashing will work.

You are definitely leaving a lot of power on the table without running meth, but IMO, it's not necessary. (And not worth the risks to me)

I shall await fuel pump options for the 335i...I fitted "Whine"bro FP for my WRX and ran 1000cc injectors...some progress has been made for the LPFP, but none for the HPFP.

No break in necessary, just treat them as you would OEM turbos...let it idle/warm up and let it rip.

I am going to that event actually, curious to see what I put down on very conservative boost (~15psi) and 93 octane. I plan doing a race gas map though.

Oh I wasn't trying to get a installed. I was more interested on a PT side job so I could learn more of the trade an help keep providing incredible service with the best detailer known to provide the best service to car enthusiasts in the DMV area.

On a side note though: I was wondering if business has been as busy as spring/summer time? Got any BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL for inside and outside bundle?
