Who's got boost?

I'm trying to plan my build, but have never actually seen a boosted non-m (or any boosted NA BMW for that matter). I was leaning toward and AA stage 2 kit, but want a little more experience with forms of FI for these cars. If anyone in the eastern Massachusetts area doesn't mind getting together for a little meet (would have a few cars show up, or as many as we can get!) I would love to see your setup. If interested in a meet, and especially if you have a boosted non-m, reply to this thread or send me a PM! Thanks,

Cole

The best reason I can think of is that S motors are too easy to get. Why reinvent the wheel, the M54 is as much to tear down as a S54.. (Basics like gaskets ans such for a inspection refresh and compression ratio adjustment. )

I live a couple miles form Horsepower freaks, and I talked to a couple different guys there about my 330ix..

They both said the same thing,,, the M54 just does not handle the HP upgrades the M3 bottom end will...
I'm not sure I believe its that dire, the M54 may not make 1400 hp , but450 would rock...

Problem is their kit price is above and beyond my fun budget... LOL

If you're looking for locations I know Jordan's furniture in Framingham is pretty lenient with meets as long as everyone's respectful. Plus they have a lot that's 3 times too big for their needs

They open in the spring, so if we were to do something in the near future then Jordan's furniture/other lots would probably be better. I'm from cape cod, and go to school in Waltham

In Newton. I have a problem with fuel delivery right now though. Switching out my fuel pump and filter to see if that solves the problem. If so, I should be getting power to the wheels I should be. If all good, I can show you my setup.
