Christmas is coming up, need some advice on some engine upgrades.

Hey guys, to start off i have a 2011 135. i already have an AFE stage 2 intake and remus quad exhaust (axle back) installed and the AR 4" catless dp's at home to be installed when im back for winter break.

my question is what other upgrades would be the best. i was looking at a FMIC.

and suggestions are appreciated.

I would recommend getting the JB3 for the N55. This is a solid product that will give you some nice power!

tune/flash. I'm kind of surprised that you waited this long to do a tune. After all of those bolt ons.

Guess you're not too concernced about warranty but the bmw ppk is also an option, current discount is good until the end of the year.

For power the tune is worth way more power for far less cost than anything you've already done. JB4 or you can wait for Cobb. Cobb might be worth the wait.

You need to put that power down. Wheel/tire package is a good idea. Best option is the Apex ARC-8 because of the rear +62mm fitment which allows 265mm+ in the rear. Not sure anything else has come out that will fit that wide of a tire without further modification.

Maybe some suspension work? Stock system has a ton of body roll. Even just an Eibach Pro System or Pro System Plus would help without making the car ride too awfully.

Not worth the money in my opinion. 600 bucks for 20 more horses? The only up side is your warranty is intact.

Just so you guys know, the JB4 is only for the N54 engine. The JB3 is for the N55. Happy modding!

Unfortunately, COBB doesn't plan to release a tune for the N55 until the PRO TUNE is done for the N54. So as of right now the JB4 N55 Stage 2 & Procede are the only options.
