    • And the BMW N54 horsepower record officially stands at 725 wheel horsepower - E92 335i with Vargas VTX-R 63 Stage 3 turbo upgrade, Cobb Flash, and PTF Pro Tune

      Well, it seems the back and forth of N54 tuning horsepower records is over... for now. Earlier this month Vargas Turbo Tech and Pro Tuning Freaks (with a Cobb flash) set the N54 hosrepower record at 693 wheel horsepower. That basically obliterated what anyone else had hit on this platform. A competing tuner with a single turbo (the Vargas VTX63 upgrade consists of twin turbos) N54 upgrade kit out of nowhere pulled out suspect numbers that eeked out a few more wheel horsepower.

      This became an ego pissing match of sorts but Vargas and Pro Tuning Freaks went back to the dyno to make some adjustments and managed to surprisingly quickly and easily take the horsepower record right back (and where it rightfully belongs due to the breakthrough being thanks to the Vargas work with the High Pressure Fuel Pump) with a 725 wheel horsepower pull.

      A video is included below along with two graphs. The E92 335i is equipped with a Pro Tuning Freaks pro tuning using the Cobb flash system, 109 octane race gas, meth injection, and of course the Vargas Turbo Technologies VTX-R 63 (GTX2863R) twin turbo upgrade and HPFP upgrade.

      Congratulations to Vargas, PTF, and Cobb for pushing the platform into new territory.

        We most likely could have made 800 today if we wanted, but who says the motor will take it. Low timing and the cleanest logs thus far at any power level mean we had a much higher ceiling, breaking a motor right now will just serve to slow me down in things I am trying to do not accelerate them. This is why we chose to stop at 725

        Great job! 725 to the ground is more than enough for me..

        Makes sense from a business standpoint. Plans on going further? Just going to wait it out and see how your customers handle theirs?

        Now if only Tony would lay his hands on the 6AT we would have a viable solution in no time. Click here to enlarge

        Pathetic. I wrote in the other thread in the other forum "Good $#@! Tony. Eat that Shiv." and even that got deleted. E90Post aka ShivPost is completely worthless now.

        Tony, I think you should take Shiv up on that BBQ thing. Show him who is boss Click here to enlarge

        Because the ST hits peak sooner?

        Top end power looks impressive. Even with an automatic shifting @ 6800rpm you'll be averaging more than 650 to the wheels throughout a 1/4 mile run.

        First get an AT that will legitimately support these power levels T!

        The single if i remember correctly made more hp and tq almost 100 more low down which may not help in a roll race but from a dig it could help however if shivs previous attempts at 1/4 runs is anything like what willhappen with this new turbo then im not expecting much

        Yeah, may need to order a couple cores and help get that sorted out.

        Please do. That would potentially increase the market by 2/3 for these high HP setups.

        Congrats Tony, what you guys have accomplished is amazing. I guess Shiv's "back pocket" was either a bluff or you beat it. Any plans for 60-130, 1/4 mile, or any of that stuff before removing the kit and getting production started? I would even love to just see some in car acceleration footage even if its nothing official

        Nah, it serves only to give Shiv yet another venue to propagate his bull$#@!. If I were Tony I'd just ignore Shiv all together, get these kits in the hands of his tuners (Dzenno, myself, Jake, and whomever else will be tuning them), and let us show Shiv and his customers what the hardware is really capable of.
