    N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    Yeah I don't think 10-15K will be enough. Turbo setup only will be at least a 3rd of that before install. Exhange rates freight and installs will send it well north. I am currently FBO with ethanol

    Tuned to 600hp you will have issues even if everything is forged. Drive train, additional fuel supply, all the other additional parts. These cars throw many problems at you when stock. If you want trouble free motoring, a 600hp n54 wouldn't be it.

    N54 Injectors

    Anybody had their injectors replaced on a 335i N54? Think I am up and its going to hurt
  6. You problem with autosure lies with your car needing to be stock to claim but if the rattle is only heard with the aftermarket downpipes then how do you proceed.
  7. You could try using the MHD rattle adjustment and see if that helps. I went through the exact same process and managed to get the turbos replaced under warranty, but even the new ones have some rattle

    MHD is highly recommended. Huge abundance of info online that will answer everything. I am pretty sure there are more tuned 335i's on the road than stock it seems

    335i e92 PE Modded Exhaust

    335I E92 PE modded Exhaust. Less packing and less Perforation in the Mufflers. Cold starts sound like an exotic super car. $120 I had this on an E91 wagon. But it was just to loud for me, I have to many grays and early starts parked next to the toddlers bedroom didn't work for the wife

    135i 7" VRSF FMIC install recommendations

    I installed my own intercooler, charge pipe bov, plugs coils etc , but harder stuff I have payed workshops to install. Even the easy stuff I get them to do now as I just dont have the time. All the aftermarket stuff can't be sourced here ( LSD , downpipes, upgraded LPFP) so I I pay them to install when I bring down and I have used places I know do great work. I am pretty sure I havent insulted any of them but I will double check

    135i 7" VRSF FMIC install recommendations

    Are you joking? If I pay someone to paint my house but supply the paint am I insulting the painter. I am paying him for his time and labour. Thats why I said take it to one of these non precious BMW Techs

    M135i lifter noise?

    I have a 335i N54,i have had it about 5 years. Especially when cold I would say yeah it a noisey engine and similar to diesel. But it goes hard so I suck it up and ignore

    135i 7" VRSF FMIC install recommendations

    Its a pretty easy job, I did my own. You could probably take it to a non bmw specialist and just show the a youtube clip of the install

    N55 turbo upgrade options - local?

    The Vargas ones are chinese cast , the housings are not custom. Just the internals.

    Cobb V3 Obsolete?

    No question they work as a tuning tool for the 335i. But MHD just has so much more functionality and support. My cobb is collecting dust in a cupboard somewhere

    Experience with MHD tunes.

    What do you call uncomfortable?

    Cutting out primary cats

    um its super tight. I have done a lot of the mods myself but was a bit tough for me. Think you need to drop the steering rack

    Cutting out primary cats

    Plenty of us running aftermarket downpipes here and wofs are no issue.

    N54 335i oil leak

    Oil filter housing gaskets are a common area that leak. BM workshop in Grey Lynn are good cats. I have a spare replacement set of new oem Rubbers for that leak if thats your issue.
