New to the Forum

Hello everyone. Just wanted to say hi to all and glad to be apart of this forum.
For those of you who never heard of me. I am on E46 fanatics and Bimmerforum which I did a custom nitrous setup by Wizard of Nos and a custom Turbo setup by STS Rear mounted turbo on a E60 530i. Plus I completely built my M54B30 motor with major Head work. Upgraded to LSDs and Race clutch along with a few other goodies.

Most of this I did by searching the forum and chatting with members.
I had no knowledge prior to doing these projects on my own and feel like i can add to the bmw community using my experiences.

Nice to meet everyone
Rito

Yes I have tons of photos.

This is a side shot of the nitrous by Wizard of Nos. The blue line is no long there anymore and it looks a lot cleaner.

Exhaust work to turbo

Final finish

Mounting Turbo

Charge Pipe with mounting for MAF and BOV

More shots of Exhaust and charge pipes

Side view of the turbo being mounted

Wastegate mounted with extended pipe

Turbo with tail pipe added

Rear view of turbo mounted after work

After all the hard work it's driving

First dyno with the setup. AFRs are very bad during this dyno day due to the fact I changed the 42lb injectors to 65lb injectors the night before with just time to put a base map on and head to the dyno the next day. This dyno is on a dynamic dyno which reads 13% less than your standard dyno so even with the bad AFRs it still made 340rwhp and after correcting loss it came out to 384rwhp. We stop the dyno and I went to tuning it right away and fixing somethings like leaks and finding that my methanol injection wasn't activating properly so that through off the AFRs as well. I don't know what the car is making now since the rest of the tuning was done off the dyno plus I had to make a lot of changes but it gave me an idea of my progress. It's definately over 400+rwhp if not over 500rwhp. This weekend More road tuning and back to the dyno either over the weekend or next week. I had to change to a high volume scavenge pump which i should be done tomorrow for the road tune.
Enjoy

Jeez that is extreme! The wastegate and extra pipe are amazing! Can you hear the turbo whistle when it spools up?

You can hear the turbo spool very loud at idle or just cruising.
I am trying to up load a video to post here. Give me a moment or check back later.
