    • 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.

        I won't do the badge, but I do want the wheels; either R-compounds like R888 or some DRs.

        Yeah, some stock wheels and some sticky tires would be awesome. You should take any tints off your car and fishbowl it around with baby on board sign.

        Not sure who "we" is referring to. Have "we" seen a log, yeah me and a few other people have seen about 9000 logs. Have Dzenno decided to post any in public, doesn't look like it. I am sure when he is ready to he will.

Talk about taking money from people...$#@!. Even if you pop the hood it can look stock other than the intake and possibly a charge pipe. Can beefed up DVs handle this HP?
        If I owned a 335 with this turbo kit this is exactly what I would do except the 328 badge. The looks on peoples face would be priceless hahahahaha

        I imagine it would vary wildly with driving style. If you roll around all day at low throttle angles at low rpms with vacuum in the manifold, it's probably quite good. If you are constantly gunning it to redline, 700 whp worth of fuel is a lot.

        If there's enough local interest we can always set something up. Jake has friends/family there so it'd go hand in hand. Same goes for Florida..

        MPG? Lol...

        It's probably not too bad when you're not WOT, what with the manifolds breathing better and all...

        A Veyron's 100 liter tank is empty in 12 minutes of full throttle, so we gotta beat that!

        Funny, because BuraQ keeps nagging people for putting their car in a low gear to save on gas. He keeps saying anything below 2k rpms is pointless. And he's in here asking about gas mileage on a set of 850hp turbos. LOL

        BuraQ is going to run into the same problem Sticky has. Not having a transmission that can handle the power. It'll eventually happen, I'm sure. (And I hope so, because a built 335is would be pretty damn awesome once the value of the cars tank)
