    what was DA when you did 120, and what was the ET?
    my 135 was a monster, DA was 400-500 if i recall correctly... about 45 degrees... ET was 12.1 with a 1.95 60ft.... on rolls the car hung with 120-122mph cars with no problem, was a great race with jons c63 amg that did 8.9 60-130 with his OE tune...

    than i started getting missfires and fueling issues so car went bye bye at 90k miles.

    Sucks man, never a good thing to see all that smoke. I totally agree with everyone here. If you need turbos right away, go RB they have a great track record and you know exactly what you are getting, which is a great product. Single would be nice but after the Shift Sector turn out it seems a bit up in the air if they have it dialed in fully. I'll take this op to do a quick update on our stuff as well, our stage 1's comrpessor wheels are shipped and in the mail, so we will be putting a set on our test car as soon as they get here, new flapper samples I am told are shipping friday to make sure the specs are correct then 2 weeks to get the production parts to me, vendor gave me a date of Dec 15th for most of the remainder of the stage 2 parts I am waiting on to ship. Stage 3 is tacked and was installed in our test car last night to check clearances, everything fit great and they are now back at the fabricators to get the manifolds fully welded then move on to DP's, piping etc. We should have a car running a prototype stage 3 set up by the middle - end of Dec. The good thing about tuning stage 3 is we will be keeping all 4 O2's in the correct locations and using the stock vacuum actuated wastegates so any tuning platform with some tweaking should be able to take advantage of them. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. I will making a full update with pictures prob around the end of the week.
    Tony put this update in another thread, and it is all good! Click here to enlarge

    whoa, how did i miss that update.

    Tony, when you say "remainder of the stage 2 parts", are those test parts or the final parts for assembly of the beta kits?

    They are, basically I am waiting on turbine wheels, wastegate flappers, and a few other small parts. As soon as they are all here we can begin assembly.

    Honestly, I cant say yes or no until we tried it, but I do not see why not... Everything else is the same except a small difference in one of the compressor housings on the stock units.

    I'll be patiently waiting to see if the Stage 3 will fit in a 135i. If so I'll be trading in my AT for a 6MT 135i in a heartbeat. One thing that concerns me is Shiv has yet to install a ST in a 135i yet either. And if for some reason he can't fit a ST in a 135 I dont see the stage 3 fitting. Either way I'll be trading in my AT for a MT be it a 135 or e90/e92...

    Ok so to keep my inbox from being flooded as it is now, quick update. I have been told ALL the turbo internals are shipping in about a week or so. I already have the upgraded thrusts, along with most of the other parts but I have been waiting on the upgraded flingers, collars, turbine wheels, and flappers. I did get a spot of bad news. My vendor is only going to be able to deliver me 20 turbine wheels on the first run due to what they claims is a manufacturing anomaly. I'm calling BS and sounds like someone dropped the ball but I can't do anything to fix it. I also got my second round of flapper samples and I still was not happy, so they are making us a new set which have about the same eta as the rest of the parts. What this means is the first 10 sets which are all betas will shipping then we will have to wait for the rest of the turbine wheels before I can assemble the remaining sets, I am ok with this anyways as it gives the betas time to put some miles on the cars and get them tuned before we ship anything else. So the ETA's are looking pretty solid the only thing I have some doubts on is the Flappers being ready at the same time I get the rest of the parts. We shall see. With the holidays being the next 2 weeks it also throws shipping times off. Bottom line we are getting very close, everyone be patient and we should be sending you some goodies soon. I hope everyone has a great safe holiday.Click here to enlargeClick here to enlarge
