Specs:
Comp Turbo oil-less triple bb Billet 67mm turbo
Steedspeed manifold
SS downpipe, wg pipe, mates to stock section 2
Electric or boost operated exhaust cutout optional
Factory DME tuned, functional CEL, Secondary air pump, etc.
Complete hardware and software package for DIY install.
No piggyback or standalone necessary! No scavenge pump! No tapping the oil pan for drain-back!

We are also a full fabrication shop, so other options will be a full street or race exhaust, in addition to a catted downpipe for those looking for a complete OBDII compliant system.

I am about to take the car for a nice road trip in a few hours so it is more than just a teaser. The factory clutch and flywheel make drivability great. With the stock exhaust the car is silent but deadly. I am going to add an e-cutout so I can have a nicer note on demand, yet fly under the radar when necessary
Great, thank you for the information. My main concern would be with the Steedspeed manifold which I won't really get into. But I do want to ask the question: would using another manifold (new HPF manifold for example) be an option? I guess the big question which you will address has to do with the ability of the factory DME when paired to a turbo engine.

We plan on releasing the kit with the Steedspeed manifold. We have used them on numerous cars, and they are proven to be reliable and solid. I can hold a solid 3psi across the board with the steedspeed and a 67mm turbo(not that I would ever run it that low!). The install is super simple , and they seal perfectly with the gaskets provided by Leen.

Here's a recent dyno graph using a steedspeed manifold, factory DME, and CES/Maximum PSI hardware on an E36 M3:

Thanks for the response. The steedspeed manifold is quite heavy and most certainly not the best manifold for the s54 currently. With that being said, would it be possible for a customer to provide another manifold? Considering it's the same price as the new HPF manifolds it seems like a win win for the customer.

Mike do you have a ballpark where the rwhp and rwtq will be?

I got excited and clicked on that dyno chart and thought those were the e46 turbo kit numbers and fell out of my chair

Then I read and realized that they were e36 numbers

I thought those were the dyno numbers for the E46 M3 too, I was like man going to have to sell my AA HKS stage 2.

Wait a minute I just realized I purchased a HKS Stage 2 kit from AA in April and was paid in full in April, but it's June now and I still don't have a kit.

I have callled AA a number of times for a tracking number but they just tell me the shipping guys is out.

Might have to sell my kit when it ever arrives and buy this turbo.

How so ? They were fine getting s54's to 1000whp. I don't understand, please elaborate.

Once our kits are ready to ship using our current hardware, I would be willing to test a HPF cast manifold on my car. If the fitment and performance is identical(or better!) to the Steedspeed we would consider it as an option.

Numbers should be on par with pump gas HPF figures, however the dyno sheets will give the actual results shortly.

That was a recent e36 built at our shop. 80lb injectors, Factory ECU, Blow through MAF. Just showing the capability of Factory BMW electronics coupled with nice hardware. We also have the ability to make some nice numbers with a full standalone. See attachment for my old setup on my silver E36.

I'm interested to see how the plastic intake manifold handles boost. So far everyone that I've seen has cracked with the increased manifold pressure. Keep us up to date!

Me too. I just put another 1200 miles on it this weekend at 8psi and things are good.

What other cars have you seen? So far Jason at ProEFI is the only other car that I've seen running a stock plenum. It cracked at higher levels than I am running.

I think a different intake manifold will make more reliable, just to be on the safe...

At low boost it should be ok but a new mani would be safer. I doubt this is anything tough for Mike though, that would be easy for him!

Local guy tried to do a custom setup. Kept popping his manifold at the seams
