Instead, I've decided to fix the leaks and instead of replacing/refurbishing the standard turbo, I will be upgrading to a hybrid along with a Wagner front mount and remap again.
On a separate note, I have also longed for a Quaife for a couple of years now is booked in with Birds after the vac pump leak is fixed next week! Once done, then I will be doing the hybrid/Wagner.
Wow so glad everything's getting sorted for you! And man what an absolute beast it will be after the mods! So jealous and I'm almost certain the N57 already has the 6HP28 doesn't it? A chap on YouTube (BMW Power) pushed 457HP on that transmission before writing it off. The Quaife is such a good investment as well, I've heard some great reviews. Cant wait to see the figures once it's all done
