Saad Racing Stage 3 Turbo in a Vert - Build

All the work was done by myself in my garage with the car up on jack stands to install the Saad Racing Stage 3. The kit came from J.R at Redline Speed Worx and all tech/install support was given by James @ Saad Racing. Both of these gentlemen are excellent to deal with. I have to give extra props to James who always answers my emails and calls with regards to this install - there have been a lot!



PARTS:
http://www.redlinespeedworx.com/saad...tem-bmw-e46-m3
SAAD Stage 3 w/ Precision Turbo 6766 Dual Ball Bearing
SAAD Stage 2 Fuel System with Flex Fuel (FIC 1100cc)
SAAD / ProEFI HO Ignition System
SAAD Billet Mounts
SAAD Catch Can
ProEFI - Pro128 w/ CAN Screen
Magnus Launch Control
SAAD / Redline Speed Worx 4" Cat Back Exhaust
Nitrous Express System - Saad Direct Port Wet












And a little Status race seat porn.

This is a SUPER LIGHT exhaust weighing in @ 8.5 lbs for the Sec 2 & 20.5 lbs for the Sec 3.

Saad Racing Turbo manifold @ 16.5 lbs and 3.5" Downpipe @ 14.5 lbs.

60 lbs for the complete exhaust set-up (not including the actual turbo).






Picture from when it was on J.R's car at RSW



Here is how the Saad/ RSW 4" catback sounded with my previous Gen 8 AA renegade SC on 110 octane. I haven't heard it with the turbo yet but J.R said he got many compliments. I expect it to be quieter - and that I will be able to remove the block off plate and bypass the muffler on the track. Tried it with the SC and it sounded like NASCAR and was crazy loud!

Thanks! The only thing that looks goofy is that I have one alcantara and one leather. I wanted to see which I liked better. I am going with leather and sending the other back to Status for a leather seat jacket.

Enjoy in good health.

Saad turbo kit looks very nice.

I would advise a non-direct nitrous injection, I ve sprayed 225-250 shot direct port back in 2010-2011.
Direct port hits very hard, very very hard.

If you install the nitrous jet between intercooler and intake manifold it will hit much smoother. Supra engines dont mind direct port, but S54 block is not very rigid, it does flex, crack etc.

6766 + 100 shot non-direct will work awesome.

Congradulations Saad, Vertigo enjoy in good health.

Hey Mert. We never recommend a fogger NOS system as there is no way to guaranty that each cylinder is getting the exact same amount of NOS and that's when you create engine failures. The Pro EFI handles NOS very precisely and wont be an issue. We run 2 stages, both wet and fuel is controlled through the injector.

James,

You are correct, even distribution is not guaranteed.

I found out S54 does not like direct port, and just wanted to warn vertigo.

I have respect for Saad, Saad had a very fast supra.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Mert. We have run it on the S54 previously without issue.
