Maximum PSI E46 Turbo Installed!

I just want to say a quick THANKS to Luke and the boys over at Maximum PSI. They were a pleasure to work with and delivered everything as promised. I got my car back this past weekend from them, and have enjoyed it thoroughly thus far. I had a little time today to clean the road grim off the car (4,000 miles of open transport is hell on a car), so I thought I would post up a couple of pics.

Things Maximum PSI did:

1. Turbo kit (SMG)
2. Lots of new bushings in rear suspension / drive-shaft Guibo
3. Rear sub frame re-enforcement
4. Southbend Clutch
5. AEM / Turbonetics gauges install

I just drove the car for the first time yesterday, so don't have a lot of miles on it. BUT, I can tell you that I love the OEM feel . Using the factory DME I am sure has a lot to do with this. Until you lay into it, it drives identical to before it was modified. I opted to leave the OEM exhaust system installed, and LOVE how quiet it is. Lay into the throttle a bit and all I hear is that throaty inline 6 just come to life and start scrubbing some rubber.

I do have a Mustang 1100SE dyno that I will be using to do some quick testing on the car. Seat of the Pants tells me I will be anywhere from 430-480 RWHP on my dyno (that is known to read relatively low). I'll post up some numbers and graphs as soon as I get some time to throw it on there!

Anyone contemplating this kit, DON'T hesitate. It will not disappoint. Thanks Luke!

Very nice! H&S performance...are you an owner? I've been thinking about picking up a Denali HD recently.

Yes, actually I am. Did you happen to see our Breaking Point 2 live event?

www.breakingpoint2.com

We had a great time. Ended up making about 1080 HP and almost 2000 lb*ft of torque with our 2011 Denali HD. They are a great truck and I am excited to get it back on the road with the twin turbo setup we have on it now.

Sorry for the derail!

Haha I did watch the Breaking Point a few days ago actually, saw the carnage and good work. That's pretty much the truck I want on around 700 daily We'll be in touch.
