Unfortunately not. We really wanted to bring it, but it didn't work out.

Mike just pulled 3 all nighters in a row to get his E36 ready. He looks like a zombie, smells like a zombie, and told me he had a conversation with me last night when I wasn't even here, but he's still at it right now and its 4:30pm the day before the show. Still lots to do...

Hey John, any progress or thoughts on which direction you guys are going with the replacement turbo? Have you figured out what exactly caused that last one to fail? Thx

At this point, no decision has been made. We are exploring a couple different options.

We got the E46 back here in NJ, yesterday afternoon. The turbo is boxed up and ready to ship to Comp. They are going to disassemble it and figure out whats going on. They are on the west coast, so they should have it in 4-5 business days.

I really hope to see a turbo fix. I'm not pulling the trigger on any FI kit because I want to see how this one performs.

I am with you on that bro x10000 even though I am leaning towards an HPF Kit.

Hey Kev - will do. The storm wasn't too bad. Mike did have to stay overnight though to keep water out of the dyno pit, but it was all worth it. Nothing was damaged.

Two new turbos should be here in a day or so. In the meantime we have the stock intake plenum off to test fit our aluminum plenum. Stage 1 is still going to use the factory airbox at this point, however we will have an aluminum plenum ready if we decide to go that route. I also have an aftermarket rear muffler to swap on in addition to the cutout that should be installed in the next day or so.
