Looks nice man! Question, what do you have on there for brakes??! "With great power comes great [stopping] responsibility...". Are those stock brakes? Are you going to put a big brake kit on at least the front?? In the one shot that showed the wheels, it looked like the brakes were pretty small. You will need major stopping power for your new FI beast! Also, what is the psi boost you will be running? Are you putting in some new gauges? Remember, even the ///M5's can often use some improvement in the brakes department. Also, how about suspension? What if anything have/will you do there?

Enjoy your project and good luck!

This will be a major step if you can pull it off--I'm not aware of any other turbo 540's. It's usually cost prohibitive. Let us know what your total price will be.

The total cost would be between 15-20 g's and trust me it's worth it,i'm the first one in the states to have a 540 sport turbocharge.If you want the kitt i can talk to my peeps at xxtuning and they would give you good price for everything

While intriguing, I'll be waiting to hear results before taking a bite that big...

Everything looks terrific. Now let's see the finished product hold up and whether you need to stroke the engine, how long that lasts, etc. Great idea and very exciting to watch! Looking forward to your progress. Good luck man! Bring it home!
