    Thanks mate for the explanation. upgrading my LPFP and having an ethanol sensor and analyser installed with new lines from the tank to the HPFP. i ideally wanna do E50 but is it easily purchased?

    Just interested in the breakdown of gull force pro 85% ethanol 15% fuel

    Valid point will get to the point of is it worth it, and just do FBO I’ll have a think of I didn’t have a spare long block I’d just do FBO

    The way the car is mapped I can do boost by gear before it’s written and select what boost I want for what gear!

    My custom tune is written for this transmission car. The trans is a GS7D36SG, Getrag DCI600, same trans internally as a M DCT. The "600" denotes the rated NM for it. If you experience clutch slippage in a DCT at under 600 ft/lbs of torque at the wheels it's because the tune/tuner hasn't/ doesn't know how to tune for a DCT. DCT adjust line pressure based on calculated load it sees from the DME. If you're making sure the DCT TCU is seeing the high load, then the TCU adjusts the line pressure higher to compensate for the higher load on the clutches. Out of all N54 DCT tuned cars pushing 500lb+ torque not one has gone. This does not mean I won’t cut corners with it. It’s just the trans is stronger than is made out to be. The tune is a DCT specific tune so all factors are taken into consideration

    Appreciate the advice, I just thought manufacturers are very conservative with figures to cover there backs! If that’s the case I intend to uprate the clutch components SSP over a lot for my gear box!! Move already updated the software which increases the pressure applied. it will be a slow build I’m in no rush and I don’t plan to cut any corners either. your input is appreciated and I’ll do every precaution necessary so I have no issues.

    ECU will be custom tuned, incorporating all my mods. i already have: Catless downpipes 7” FMIC Charge pipe bmw P exhaust oil catch can oil cooler valve updated PCV and cap Latest Bmw injectors delphi ignition coil kit 2 step spark plugs drive belt kit 1st step is to forge what I have Then I will deal with ge chassis, drivetrain, diff and trans. Lastly is the turbo kit with necessary fueling. Appreciate the advice and guidance.

    I plan to do this properly and focus on the whole package not just the power output. The 520NM is the conservative figure set my Getrag. However that figure is off what a company website says that doesnt want to be liable for miss leading or miss representing its product. So instead they under rate it. Im sure no one at bmw would say the n54 is rated for 700whp but it can certainly do it. i will upgrade the TCU software which I have already done and I’ll be getting SSP gaskets, filter and clutch pack. The gearbox is identical to the new M3 and M4 and can handle there power output.... anyway this build won’t be rushed will be done properly with no short cuts!!

    Thank you for being positive and taking me seriously mate. I aim to beef up everything tbh, it will be done in stages, I have been taking the chassis into account driveshaft and diff. supposedly my trans will handle it, I have a 2009 DCT. i have a list of mods half of which I have. Currently I’ve looked at internals, twin turbo set up, fueling too! If anyone knows does the 335i have an LSD (and no for the smart arses not acid) thanks again
  10. N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    Thanks for the advice mate, I will gladly engage intelligent with him but he needs to stop being some what of an arse hole, and I thought it was just the poms (I am one) that we’re those haha! Anyway i am serious about this build so I’ll keep the ones that are genuinely interested in the loop.
  11. N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    In all honesty they weren’t stupid mind dumbing questions, I was merely after advice and pointers in the right direction due to tuning not being my strong point, and your we’re just being a patronising unhelpful arse hole. You do that and all the best. Some ppl here have helped but other forums have been so much more. It’s a shame, I thought forums are meant to bring people together who share the same passion, obviously not this one.

    Fueling wise I’ll be getting the fuel it stage 4 LPFP and port injection. A lot of the Americans don’t seem to have issues
  13. N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    Taking it each step at a time, was thinking max 10-15k
  14. N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    If you’re not going to be helpful, f**k off. Tbh you come across as a middle aged prick, fed up of asking this forum for advice if some of you are going to be no help or give me pointless and unecessary advice.
  15. N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    I have a love affair buddy!! Plus I want to use what I got, if I were to buy I would want an M4 but this modding plus the value of my car wouldn’t amount to an M4
