JB4 is cheaper and it has adjustable maps. Dinan is a bit expensive for what you're getting. thanks anyway!

It's not as straightforward as you'd think. You'll probably need forged internals to run that much on a regular basis. You don't want to blow a hole in your block and be left with a useless e93. haha. Then swap out the turbos and get a much stronger clutch. Have it custom tuned on a dyno. You can likely go higher than 500 on this setup with no issues.

I personally wouldn't recommend this route however, since at the end of the day you'll spend a ton and still won't have an ///M car. You'll also never get a penny out of your mods on resale. My best advice is to get an e46 M3 and go FI on it. You can put down a reliable 600 whp for similar money and be able to talk about owning an M3.

Can't wait to see where this goes!

( x 500 ) + = 500whp

Seems pretty simple if you own a large ranch :bow1:
lol^^

The JB4 is a wonderful thing, i can switch maps between stock which with supporting mods would be around 350whp and for a quick blast down the interstate or if i run into a C63 i can switch to map 7 which if im correct is 17psi and that could give you anwhere in the ballpark of 450-500whp. I WILL NOT BE RUNNING FULL BOOST ALL THE TIME so i wont worry as much with wear and tear. after 500hp gets boring i might look into a G-Power M6 or M5

500hp on a stock turbo is not going to happen. Could probably get 415ish with stock turbo though.

What he said. I think the highest I've seen in real life has been between 380 and 390 to the wheels, no corrections on a good day on a 335i. you definately need something more to get anywhere near 500.

i was thinking Cobb and i am impressed with what Cobb has done but JB4 has easily adjustable maps, theres intrusctional videos on YouTube on how to map swith. thats what won me over Cobb. other than that, upgraded turbos and bolt ons are planned. i was planning on running 100 oct versus meth but is meth the better way to go?

and btw ive seen 463whp on stock turbos but as expected they blew off a turbine blade -_- which is why Rob Beck upgraded turbos are a planned modification

yup... N54's are very strong, there is one that has been running 538whp for a whole year with no issues... the N55 however is a lot weaker due to UNforged internals.
