• New quickest and fastest BMW N55 1/4 mile record - Vargas Turbo Tech upgraded and JB4 tuned 335 runs 11.4@123

      Congratulations are in order to BMS (Burger Motorsports) and Vargas Turbo Technologies on pushing the N55 BMW platform to new hights. Aftermarket BMW tuning has been dominated by the BMW N54 twin turbo motor up until this point and the newer single turbo N55 inline-6 motor has not received quite as much attention. As the N54 is out of production the N55 is finally getting a bit of tuner love and the proof is below in a new quickest and fastest world record 1/4 mile run.


      This 335 is the same car that set the N55 horsepower record last week with a 468 wheel horsepower run on a Dynojet thanks to its upgraded turbocharger from Vargas. BMS did the tuning and the result is a new world record in the real world on the drag strip. The 335 in question in an automatic vehicle and the run took place at the Famoso drag strip in California.

      This is still very early in the upgraded turbocharger game for the N55 motor so enthusiasts can expect the numbers to improve over the next year as the N55 motor finally gets to the next level. Congratulations to all involved, well done.

        Great results, can't wait to see the platform push this turbo. What octane/fuel were this runs on @Terry@BMS? I believe you mentioned ~E30 + meth in the dyno thread?

        Impressive. I wonder how much meth helps if you're already on 50% e85 mix. I run 50% e85 daily but have no intentions of moving to meth.....

        Congrats to both of you, impressive results.

        Any differences in the N55 auto tranny and the N54?? It would be nice to kill 2 birds with one stone if they are the same..

        This thing will be a beast coupled with more boost and race fuel.This turbo can potentially be a 130 mph trapper. The boost after everygear is spot on, I'm really liking this.

        Meth is going to not only help with fueling but with cooling and keeping the car consistent pass after pass. I would be curious to know how many other runs were made and with what trap speeds/ET's.. none the less very impressive runs
