335xi Turbo Upgrades

What turbo upgrades will fit a E92 335xi or 335i xDrive with 6AT? Please no RWD or 6MT comments. I know there are a lot of space constraints with the N54. I talked to HPF Erik and he said their (hopefully) upcoming kit would probably fit AT but he is questionable of xi or xDrive. Thanks

any of the stage 1 / stage 2 turbo upgrades will fit. the vargas stage 3 most likely won't fit, and single turbos just haven't been tested yet on an XI to know

Been pestering FFTEC and Vishnu for a while about getting a single conversion for my Xi. I'm willing to be the guinea pig, and we are finally making progress on estimates and such, so we may have an answer to the single turbo question very soon.

HPF moved the motor mount because they didn't have enough room with their first attempt, but the manifold didn't work. So honestly I wouldn't even think about going HPF unless they redesign the kit so they aren't relocating the motor mount.

I thought shiv had an XI he was testing the single on. I could be mistaken.

There is a top mount single turbo kit nearing production. It sould work fine with the constraints the XI poses.

Shiv and FFTEC had a couple different Xis fall through, but they will have one now. The wife just gave the approval and I'm working with Mike over at FFTEC to get the paperwork taken care of and the car into the shop. More to come as we move forward.

Got the car back and it's a beast. I think Shiv and/or FFTEC are putting together a full install thread and I will have independent numbers once I get back from vacation and can play with the car
