My Ride: BMW 330CiA '04
330Ci turbo Daily car

Hello everbody,
I'm plaining go to turbo (another more yes!) in my 330Ci Steptronic. Is my daily car but I don't use a lot probably about about 15000 km/year.

In first time I know that Steptronic is the biggest problem but at the moment I would like keep it . If it broke then I would go to Manual and probably more boost.

First I will go buying the parts bit by bit and when I have all go to install (you know daily car so I can't stay a lot time without it)

I would like have some advice and if you think that I would need some part more. I first time I hope go to 7-8 psi

-Turbo T3/T4 with internal wastegate. Compresor trim 55 and Turbine 0.63A/R
-Siemens deka 42lb injector
-Cast Iron manifold (bottom)
-Modified mount (for bottom turbo)
-BOV quiet (I don't like the "psss")
-Manual Turbo Controller (or maybe don't use it and just regulate by internal wastegate)
-330d e46 Intercooler. I know people use universal intercooler, but I think this will be easier to install and like is smaller than others so I will get less "lag" (is important for me). I think that work good in that setup because if 330d e46 work about 20 psi andI plain go about 7-8psi I guess will be enough
-Downpipe 3" stainless homemade
-All piping about intercooler. Compresor outlet to intercooler in 2" and intercooler to throttle in 2,5" and final adapter to 3".
-MS43 tune
-OEM MAF

What do you thing? Did I forget something? Some advice?

Cheers guys!

Wastegate can be Controller by MS43, no need for external Controller. If you can afford, install alpina torque converter and flash alpina Egs Software. Should work with ~ 350hp, torque can be reduced where it's needed.
