This piggyback tune flipped the N54 tuning game on its head. This honestly looks like a typical N54 failure, have him get a good set of. So how do we get it? Well, to hit these Dyno numbers, Amit used a 125 shot of Nitrous. Since the N54 is based on the older engine, it has an aluminium engine block instead of the magnesium alloy used by the N53 , a displacement of 2,979 cc 181. Nothing super crazy, just a basic responsive single turbo setup. There are many tuning options out there for the N54 platform, but there are a few that stand head and shoulders above the rest.
This is available as a download on Google Play. Are your turbos not making full boost? Infact all the bores apart from cyl1 looked very healthy also. I planned on rebuilding them this winter, instead this little incident has expedited my plans. The difference in power gains from a catless downpipe compared to a high flow catted downpipe are only a few horsepower. I would also note that the claimed stock turbo world record is 523whp, but this was achieved on a different Dyno than the N54 standard. In general, the cooler the air entering your engine, the more power you will make.
In fact, I could see 20 of the 24 clearly bent. If you want the absolute maximum power available, go with catless. Enlarged mating surface increase mating area strength significantly and grinded mating surface makes re-assembling job accurate and easy. The N54 comes stock with a forged crankshaft and rods.

This phosphate coating provides a lubrication to the pin bores and ring grooves until the engine oil reaches operating temperature, most importantly during cold start scenarios, protecting against galling and micro-welding. While many think that you need to change the catback section on your car to change the sound, upgrading your downpipes will also make a big change in the acoustics. Also, evident scoring can be observed on the cam trays. Also purchase n54 downpipes, performance exhaust system and oil coolers. This setup was running 25. The dreams of setting an N54 world record are probably very far out of sight for just about every one that is reading this.
If they were forged maybe your engine wouldn't break? Usually 3-4 holes are all slightly bent. To see how we built a 500hp 11-second 335xi using this exact guide! Auto trans held up perfectly fine with no signs of slipping. A large reason for the switch from the twin-turbo to twin-scroll turbo is cost and complexity. The best is a balance between being large enough to effectively cool the charged air, but not so large that there is a significant pressure loss. An updated design for the fuel injectors was also introduced.
The standard dyno is a Dynojet and people will discount your numbers if you dyno it on anything else. These warranty extensions only apply to the United States. Don't see what you need or have a question? To see how we built a 500hp 11-second 335xi using this exact guide! First thing I noticed was the wet oil in cylinder 1, the head was coated, the piston was very oily, and once wiped off there was no noticeable damage to the piston top, or the cylinder head, I did notice there was a lot of severe detenation on top of piston number 5 and also evident in the head of that chamber. He currently holds the top two records at his garage in Florida. Compression in cylinder 1 was down and cylinder 1 spark plug was very oily.
The N54 was used in the 335i from 2006 until 2010, the 135i from 2008-2013, and the 740i from 2008-2012. Please place a request at the end of your order in the notes section if you would like this service. Also, we can recommend it for those of you who wants to tune it. Both engines are incredibly strong factory motors than can handle plenty of abuse on the stock blocks and internals. This version is rated at 225 kW 302 hp and 400 N·m. The N54 has won five straight awards and three straight awards.
Confirmed by my shop when they opened the engine. It's clearly visible that both the intake and exhaust valves are stuck open. I actually had my turbochargers replaced on my 2007 335i under the extended warranty a story for another day. I can only assume it has a faulty injector and that has caused the detenation in that cylinder alone. Other intake styles occupy different parts of the engine bay and can interfere with other upgrades by different companies. At low speeds the camshafts will move to open the valves later in order to make the engine smoother and improve idling.
