    • 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.

        Well my math sucks but 1 gigahorse = 1000 megahorse = 1,000,000 kilohorse = 1,000,000,000 horsepower. Something like that.

        Thats a lot of power. And thats a mess of mixing different measurements lol. Then instead of nibbles and bits we can get into pony power.

        Pretty sure their focus is on stage 2 batch 2 first, once they start shipping I'm sure stage 3 won't be far behind. Just repeating what I heard a few weeks ago.

        Very exciting stuff happening. Manifolds are coming nicely, the new design is awesome! All the water and oil lines and fittings are being made, we are redesigning the down pipes to make installation a little bit easier. We're not just taking the prototype kit and copying it and selling it as a production kit. Every last piece is being improved upon, meaning we wi be delivering a true production kit. Sorry for the lack of updates, just swamped.
