Not yet, but as soon as I do, I will post them.

I want to post updates are much as you guys want to read them. We are doing our best to finalize the kit as quickly as possible.

The kit will be between 9200-10200 depending on the final configuration we go with. We are definitely switching to a ball bearing precision turbo, an additional scavenge pump/harness/relay, and choice of catted/uncatted downpipe. We are still up in the air about using an aluminum plenum or not, however that will bring the kit to the 10k mark. I welcome everyone's feedback on the matter.

this is exciting! You're giving me a reason to pick up another e46 And, i'm local too! Loving it! Can't wait to hear more.

As for the plenum, if it helps to make more and more reliable power, its worth it, but if the stock plenium can handle these boost levels and its more for show, then forget it!

The stock plenum has held up to the task without modification so far. If we use the stock plenum in the kit it will come with reinforcements to further strengthen the plenum and minimize expansion.

So I'm assuming these oil-less turbo's aren't working out.

I had 2 6765 failures in similar applications. My billet 80mm oil-less has about 2000 miles with no issues.

I don't want to speculate on why they failed, just that it happened and we are focused on offering the most reliable package. That said, Comp sent me a replacement (oil-fed, at my request) triple bb turbo without a problem. We have several turbos to try since the car was apart waiting for a replacement.

We will keep the thread updated as soon as we have more pics or dyno results.

Mike I think you should get in contact with Saad racing. Pro-efi turbo e46 m3 is using Saad's manufactured turbo manifold that use a gravity drain from the turbo back to the motor, no scavenge pump needed making it simple,more reliable and the cost down. any idea how much will the kit or hardware cost without the tuning for the guys that want to go ProEFi to tae advantage of their flex fuel system.

....X2! I think if you guys can keep the price down closer to the "$9200" you spoke of this will be a grand slam** ...perhaps, with the exhaust manifold "hennessey_r24" was speaking of combined using the stock/factory intake manifold it could even be offered at $8,990*

Are there any pictures of this and will it fit a T67/T71? I would love to get rid of my scavenge oil system.

Jason is running a gt40 turbo so I guess you can fit a t67/t71

I'd like to see this as well! If Saad Racing kits have the scavenge free set up I'd also like to go that route as well to avoid any potential problems with scavenge pump failure etc...

CES was running the steedspeed manifolds in the E36 without a scavenge pump, with a GT4094, so I'm curious what level of need there is as is.

Drain location, how the turbo is clocked, what orientation the shaft seal is during the turbo assembly process: these are a few variables.

I know I had to run a pump on my e36 with a steedspeed and 4094 in addition to a 6765 precision bb. I currently have a bb comp turbo that I just tried running with a tiny restrictor and optimal drain and it is getting a small amount of oil in the charge pipe. With a MAF based system you don't want any oil to contaminate the HFM.

I would love to see pics of the Saad manifold. I am also curious to see if there is any oil in the charge pipes, even minimal amounts. I am always open to other options. Trust me, I was shooting for a lower price point, however I want to offer a high quality, trouble free product.

Hi Kevin,
The turbo and scavenge pump is installed and functional. I am trying to have the car up and running today if possible. I am modifying the factory plenum and installing a different FMIC and piping combo. If not it will be on monday. I have an enduro kart national Fri-Sun at NJMP on the lightning track.

Very nice, looking forward to seeing the final product. These mods to the factory plenum... is this just playing it safe at the prospective ~8psi or so boost level, or have you guys seen evidence the factory intake fatigues and cracks at these levels? Also, if you did manage to get it running let us knows how it runs, drives and feels*

The modification consists of an internal support to minimize any ballooning due to the pressurized plenum. No, I have not seen any issues, and we have pressure tested the intake higher than the intended boost level without a problem.

Unfortunately I ran out of time today with other customer cars taking priority, however I will be getting the car together ASAP. I haven't got a chance to get into boost since the car came back from Technique Tuning!
