What a great combo; high quality hardware via Mike and team, plus the best in the land at tuning, and noteably in the turbo-charged arena, NickG.

Even though I have a centri-kit now; I'm mighty tempted . . .

Does anyone have pics of the underbody with the current kit configuration?
I'd like to see how much, if any, of the piping is below stock underbody clearance.
Here ya go:

I can say the "cleanest" and "simplest" S54 turbo kit out there.

Simplicity, use of oem dme, means more reliable.

Hope you sell as many as you wish, very nice kit.

We don't have a lot of videos showing the drivability of Mike's shop car. It doesn't see a lot of partial throttle, if you know what I mean! Here is a link to a video Brian made. It is pretty uneventful. I think the most exciting point is where he gets cut off by the cab!



From personal experience, you would not know the car makes over double the power of a stock car when you crank it up and drive it. It is only when you get into boost that you realize you have a beast on your hands. Hopefully Brian or Dexter can comment on this as well!

Just recently got my car back.. I think i fell in love all over again... Drivability has gotten better especially with my open dump. Exhaust note has changed.. The powerband feels smoother. Driving back home, i took it to 150 with ease... Will start a new thread with some better videos soon

Just to add..... I was at Maximum Psi a couple weeks ago picking up my car. While I was there, Mike gave me a lot of insightful info on their work. We went for a ride as well. Honestly, the car feels completely stock until you get on it. It sounds calm as well. But once Mike got into boost, the car quickly turned into a beast. This car will have no problem holding its own against most cars on the road. The power, sound, the ride, was excellent. And it was simply on pump gas. You guys have done some incredible work. Mike takes much pride in this kit and he is a true stand up guy. I'd recommend anyone that needs assistance with their car to give them a call. They know their stuff. If I end up keeping my car, I just might go the Max Psi turbo kit route. Good work again fellas.

All sorts of good information here and this kit as others have mentioned, if out during my decision, this would of been my way to go. It still might now that Nick mentioned stock DME can do 700 whp!!!! That one blew my mind!!

Great job guys!!!!

Hey guys, very nice job on the kit. Is there any more info on the turbo specs? BB, A/R sizes, vband etc. also intercooler core sizes, injector sizes, waste gate mm? I'm very interested in this kit and am local. Thanks

Nice kit! To get the performance listed for 103 Octane, is it simply fuel change? Looks like boost was bumped up to 12.5 psi. Does the kit provide a means to increase boost when using higher octane?

Any details on the modification and change regarding the motor mount hardware?

Thanks!!

I take it you are asking in reference to your 99 328 s54 swap?? (Cool build btw!). This would have to be something done in house. Call or email us if you are interested in talking about the specifics!

The turbo is a precision 6266 JB with a divided T4 exhaust housing 1.15 AR. The intercooler core is 22x8x3.5 with custom made end tanks. We are utilizing a tial mvr wastegate.

The gains for 103 we made by simply turning up the boost! The kit doesn't come with a boost controller. We use a manual boost controller on the shop car, but some prefer the electronic type. We choose to leave this option up to you guys.

The kit come with a fabricated motor mount arm from Rallyroad.net. We also include a motor mount with an enforcer tube. This is required to leave enough room for the inlet pipe.

Clearly the best FI option on the market now, retaining the stock DME and no issues with passing smog is a huge plus. Wish it'd been available years ago when I had my E46 M3. Great job guys!

Hopefully i can get a aquamist kit in here by summer time... And get some pump + meth numbers. Wanted to go e85. But thinking now, the e85 stations are 2 far from me.. The meth will last longer
