I messaged them for updates and I've actually been given a LOT of info surprisingly. They actually have 2 twin turbo upgrades and one single turbo upgrade running right now. One of the cars has a built motor as shown in their pics, but they aren't able to push the tuning limits yet so the full potential hasn't been reached since they are limited by the stock Map sensor.

They got some n20 sensors and were asking how to set them up, but the communication barrier was an issue and I couldn't really help them set it up, but they'll probably figure it out eventually. They are running 5.X second 100-200 km/h right now so after proper tuning the #'s should be pretty impressive.

I've watched them dyno on skype, pretty legit/impressive stuff. I got a bunch of pricing on stuff they sell and pricing is crazy. 6k just on exhaust setups, but that's just how normal pricing in Taiwan is and they don't really have any plans to sell to the US market.

I've tried to get proper vbox #'s, dyno info from them, but it's difficult as I don't speak a single word in their language, but maybe somebody else who does could talk to them?

Ive tried talking to them as well and even though the information in valuable and great to hear...Ive realized that the communication barrier is big...And also that the prices they charge will never be in line with what you and I would be willing to pay for a turbo kit all the way from Taiwan...My car would probabaly end up sitting in the garage or with a blown motor...And id get raped on the cost and shipping of the kit not to mention...All to look forward to a communication gap to try to tune the issues out..Doesnt seem too appetizing to me...Although I do agree they have some impressive info and dedicated people on the N54 I would never buy anything from there!

I have a very legit contact in Taiwan as well as Singapore and I have tried contacting these guys numerous times. I have never heard anything back from them. And that's how pricing in Taiwan is? Um, no its not. Anything you can buy here you can buy or have made in Taiwan for pennies on the dollar. If they are charging 6 grand for an exhaust set up they are laughing all the way to the bank. I actually was very interested in their set up simply because its fun to talk to people who are involved in what you are involved in. But I tried months ago to make contact and nothing so I gave up. I wish them luck

Any of you guys on the asian bmw forums?

There's a bunch of dudes running single turbo n54s. I'm not sure if it's the fftec kits or replicas of them but theres a couple different variations. The 1/4 mile is something unknown to most of them though and they normally do high speed pulls. It's mostly younger people with rich parents so their cars are always full out modded. A 335i costs like triple the price over there so that explains why most of the owners have open budgets.

Could be some Vishnu singles as shiv was in Asia a little while ago helping install and tune the turbo kits that he had over there.

They seem to be near where I used to reside in Taiwan. Next time I make a stop there ( Probably summer ) I'll drop by or something.

Interesting. Didn't know the N54 is slowly picking up there Also those people generally import their 335i's. A friend of ours actually imported an X6 V8, and 335i N54 as it's much cheaper including taking care of certification than buying one new or used there.

Those pie cuts are absolutely beautiful. The manifold does look equal length and the size looks all appropriate. I wonder what needed to be removed to fit this in the engine bay though. One thing I did notice was the cold side comming so close to the manifold which obviously could become some serious timming being pulled unless the FMIC on this thing can maintain those temps.

Gorgeous otherwise, nice to see something other than the cookie cutter kit we see lately.
