ha..i knew this ? would come around.

well looking for someone that just might have one off their car or a spare....
the reason i ask is a good friend of mine is in the turbo business and there might be some sort of maching or moddin that can be done to these stock units to bump them up some.

Might as well take yours out. I 100% doubt you will find anyone with a "spare" turbo. There is always use for them.

There must be numerous totaled cars by now. The worldwide production figure is big. Those turbos are somewhere.

As Nick said....we would like to take a look and see. We are a full CNC custom turbocharger engineering house. So typically we can build pretty much ANY turbo you want.

I had one sitting on top of my toolbox at work for about 3 weeks......

Rear wastegate was out of adjustment, and BMW N/A wanted me to replace it rather than adjusting it. Turned out the new turbo was on backorder.

I had another member pm me about borrowing the turbo so turbonetics can see about modifying them and had I know it would of been 3+ weeks till the new one came in I would of sent it to them. Oh well. Maybe next time.....

Wow, still trying to hold onto your status as the fastest 335i in the country. How much longer till you have to change your sig from MaxBoost to MaxBlowUP when your engine explodes from running proceded and 25psi on your turbos...........hehehehe.

Seriously, good luck with finding that turbo.
