Understandable...

for the CP get whatever aftermarket you prefer. Lots of options there with BOV (not sure if a BOV adds much on an N55 or is this an n54? but do your research)

Intercooler you should be able to get a low cost or freebee from another member here.

We're just trying to save you the headaches of upgrading a mystery car and then chasing problems later.

Poor car. There should be capital punishment for these types of offenses. At least we could hope the lack of taste gene is held in check from devastating the overall gene pool. Too bad Darwin couldn't step in.

Oh my good soul in heaven... Just that little bit of throw up in the back of my mouth now.

You, sir, are to be commended for rescuing this car. For postage costs, you can have my stock intercooler for free if you're so inclined.

Keep up the good work and bless you,

ianc

I have always wanted a BMW but have not been able to afford one as a 22 year old student. Until I found this 2008 135i with 60k miles for a steal. It is fully loaded and has the m package brakes, suspension etc.

THE CAR:
He butchered it. The car runs like crap. It struggles under 2k rpm (I limped her home) and according to the PO an engine malfunction warning comes on when you mash the gas. I assume this is the engine protecting itself from his ignorance. I obviously want to solve these problems, upgrade the car, and keep as much money in my wallet as possible. Opinions on what parts to get or how to build are appreciated.

Problems in order of worst to postponable are:
1. NO INTERCOOLER. The fool removed the intercooler. I am thinking about getting the VRSF 7" HD intercooler to replace.
Price- $548

2. NO INTAKE ON REAR TURBO. The intake for the rear turbo cracked so the PO just stopped driving it instead of getting the $250 part from the dealer. I want to upgrade to the Precision Raceworks N54 inlet system.
Price-$499

3. BAD TUNE. He bought the Vishnu PROcede v5 but did not know how to use it. Once I have my intake, intercooler, and possibly exhaust on I will do my best to tune it with help from online.
Price-Free

4. BS CHARGE PIPE AND BOV. He custom rigged a charge pipe with a 10lb Tial BOV cut into the stock tubing. I was thinking about getting the VRSF charge pup with a Tial BOV.
Price- $457.87

5. EXHAUST - EW. He decided he wanted to run 6 exhaust pipes... it looks terrible, is way too loud, and sounds bad. I am trying to figure out what exhaust system best suits my build.
Price-$1,200++++

If I fix these problems will the car be back in good condition?
Thanks
Dude, please post progress and more pics as you fix this car.

Unplug fuel rail, start car, let it burn down, collect insurance money, start again.
