My first thought for the lack of activity here is just that it's easier to organize over facebook. The MassBMW page is decently active.

That being said I believe there's a quality difference between the members you get on a forum versus what FB can offer. Just try buying/selling anything on marketplace...

I haven't been too active because I've been working from home since March and have been surrounded by many other distractions.

But anywho, my rear turbo is finally shot after the seal has been leaking since last summer (just hit 70k miles). I was in a long battle of single vs twins but ultimately decided to stick with twins. Twins just match my driving style better and I'm not after >600whp. Although the block can handle the power, our chassis needs far more upgrades to reliably put down that power outside of the dyno/highway pulls.

I went with RB Twos Plus. With a custom tune I'm hoping to be around 500whp on pump 93 and ~550whp with E30 blend. Just waiting for them to be delivered, I should have them installed before the end of the month.

I'll be dropping the subframe for the install as my OPG is leaking and needs to be replaced. Besides that, all the rest of the preventative maintenance is complete. Not sure how long my clutch will last with the new turbos, it's at 70k and I can feel it wearing more & more. I'll probably upgrade that early 2021 and replace my RMS when doing so, then I shouldn't have to worry about anything for a while.

Any plans on getting a dyno?

I am sure you will be very happy with the RBs!

Yeah, but most likely not until 2021. My fueling is still stock so I want to upgrade that and get custom tuned first. Going to take it one step at a time.

The OEM rod bearings OEM rod bolts were just done. Miles don't kill engines.

People spend 15k on an n54 powered car still. This with a nice SC, plenty get sold used, would be fun with the dct.

At least you can track the car and not have oil starvation issues like the n54 which the only true solution is a custom sump setup $$$.

But to each their own

Stage 3.5 or stage 4 w/ return?

For the stage 4 I was thinking a 450 primary and two 525s. Should be more than enough fuel for the platform.

I went with 3.5, 450 primary with the 525. I have it installed but the 525 isn't hooked up to anything yet, still need to order my PI manifold & injectors.

Full E85 here I come!

I was thinking 3.75 as I can't imagine ever needing more...saves me a big chunk of change over a stage 4.


I also need to buy two 15 gallon tanks and a transfer pump. My plan is to drive in and buy E85. That gets me basically 2-3 full tanks.


I'm on the fence AIC6 or Motiv Reflex. I'm leaning to the Motiv Reflex because fuck it why not have the latest and greatest and Motiv will be tuning me anyways.

Decisions decisions.

Why not just go stage 3 with PI and a manifold? At least that's what I'm planning on doing.

I live about 40 minutes from the e85 station in Cambridge so I'm getting a 15 gallon tank from Amazon so I can save myself a trip.

I'm holding out for the reflex to control my future PI. I'm hoping for new features and updates to be added to it as time goes on. Especially since they have the backing of MHD

Amazon. Not cheap, but I couldn't find them much cheaper anywhere else. I obviously did not need to buy the FloFast pump and could have gone with something else more affordable but whatever. It should fill the tank fast enough at 8 gpm.

I did look at these: https://hartford.craigslist.org/grd/...274606283.html
