It was a GT so he added at least one turbo. Sounds like a lot of spooling.



Wow. 130+ at altitude is flying. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing.

RT of >1 sec. Then does a near 3sec 60 ft, but pulls off a 12.155. Dat car got da balls.

Just pulled off my intake manifold tonight and first three don't look too bad, the back three is a different story. Cylinder #5 looks really bad. I'm walnut blasting tomorrow and I'll post up pics. Had a neighborhood party tonight and I'm too buzzed to continue. FYI, car is barely over 50k.

Did the Mustang have a roll cage? At 133mph, they would likely be in the high 10s, low 11s. I think a roll cage might be required at those elapsed times. So if they were only trying to see what trap speed they could get they might have muffed the 60ft on purpose to keep from going home.

That's probably very true....they might have not launched it on purpose so they didn't get kicked out.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure he lifted at the end too. For a second there I was feeling proud of the car, but then he chased me down like a rabid dog and kept on going. You can't tell in the video, but he was bus lengths ahead of me at the end. Not sure if I mentioned or not, but he had about 5-6 people there with him to watch, so I think it was a pretty big project. Guy was flying. I did not see a cage and he wasn't wearing a jacket either, as far as I could tell. I'm assuming he got booted, or was about to

On another note, it's frustrating that these cars are so heavy and slow! I was hoping for mid 13's with the jb4 map 2 and downpipe. I guess being a sedan and AWD kills me, not to mention 9000 DA. Hell, there was an evo that ran 11.22 that night. Dayum!

Good times. Who's going tomorrow!?

Supposed to be rain showers tomorrow afternoon. One of these days I'll get back out there before the season ends.

It's doable at that DA. This was my slip with the procede tune, dp's and dv's. 6MT as well.

Nice! I hear the procede is better for us guys at elevation due to the timing changes, whereas jb4 is not doing anything with timing. Is that true or partially true? Maybe I'll pick up a procede v5 when I do cp and 7" fmic

As a side, if my jb4 only goes to menu 9, does that mean it's not ISO 5? I was trying to tweak the dwp but couldn't get past menu 9.

Just saying hello on here since it's local, had a 2011 135i a couple years back and had moved onto a few different vehicles but now back in a 2011 335ix sedan.

Looking to take my time with the mod bug for once so will be researching wheels/coilovers first before I decide what route I will take for hp. Car will never be "fast", just a clean reliable car that can get some spirited track days n such.

EDIT - Oh and I like long walks on the beach.

Hey guys,

New BMW enthusiast here looking for a 335xi sedan in Denver and thought I'd check out this thread.

I noticed red 5.0 mustang mentioned above. I know the guy, his name is Danny and he's from the springs. Short list of mods that I know of:
Single 76mm turbo(kit fabricated by the owner)
Custom tune by Finish Line in Denver
Stock engine
Stock transimission/torque converter(his 60' was horrible for a 130+mph run)
Slicks and skinnys

Not sure if he's sold it yet:

And you might try Carmax too. I had an excellent experience with them when I was searching for a 2010 N54 that was RWD (which is also pretty tough to come by in Colorado).

Good luck.

Looks like 335i Xdrive sedan manual, just not sure if he wants an N54/N55 like you mentioned. My apologies since I purchased the sedan manual two saturdays ago haha.

Nice. I have that same exact car except white with black interior. No regrets at all about purchasing the manual transmission even though the automatic is faster in many situations.
