Turbo Turner with UR Downpipes?

Jeff,

Any issues or concerns with getting the Ultimate Racing downpipes installed interacting with the Turbo Turner. I called split second and they cautioned against it since only stock 335i's were used for beta testing.

I certainly wouldn't want faulty codes going off all the time (the way Dinan s/w did on my 330i !!!!)



Lee

p.s. ticket or no ticket...I'm keeping my TT. Extra boost is too much fun!

Hears the real question...

If you looking for more power, why did you choose Turbo Tuner? Most choose it because ease of install/removal and price.

You now want to add downpipes (expensive and difficult install for most). Doesn't that kinda defeat the advantages of Turbo Tuner? I would guess that a simple switch to Procede or Active Xede would yield as much, if not more power than Turbo Tuner + plus downpipes. It would also be a hell of a lot easier. My two pennies.

I see no reason why not to get them ... just saying if you are looking for max hp gains, one of the other tuning options would have been the way to go.

Sell the TT, buy Procede or Xede. Less money overall, a lot easier to install. Plus, you can always add the downpipes later (with a downpipe specific map, which Turbo Tuner does not offer).

I know what you are saying Lee. WE keep playing around with ways to make more Safe power From what I understand of what a down pipe does, I personally see no problem running a TT with the down pipe kit. In fact I would expect a nice little bump in power.

WE now have our plasma coil packs available as well for the 335. We have not dyno tested that set up yet on a 335 but several people have already jumped on it so I expect to see some results soon. I can say that on a recent test on a mustang gt the coils added over 9HP and that was not on a FI engine!

Over in Japan we tested a set on a Suby WRX and it made 14HP! So I am expecting similar results on the 335. Not too mention the nice increase gas mileage you get by burning all the fuel in the cylinders!

How much does it cost and approx how long for a professional install?

Thanks Jeff!

Lee

335i + TT + UR exhaust + UR downpipes + plasma coil packs + Spearco intercooler = and a voided warranty.
