Post your mods that's a phat trap.

To get the time down you need more grip and maybe more practice if the car is a manual, beware of breaking stuff once you get off street tires though.

Lsd is awesome fun and I'm kinda waiting on ps3.

12.7 was my best stock turbo time but that was a couple of years ago now on map 5 E30 no meth etc.
I really should be mid elevens, need adjustable launch control.

I'm at 11.17 @ 134mph with a 1.89 60ft

e90 335i n54 ZF 6AT

FBO
Hexon RR700 @ 24 psi
Hexon Inlets
JD75 modified HSCP
Port Injection
Fuelit Stage 3
100% e85
Built ZF gearbox
Mfactory LSD
17x8.5 bmw wheels with MT 275/40 DRs
MHD flash only Nizpro custom tune

375rkww on Mainline Dyno

The car has a 10 sec pass in it, just need more grippy tyres to reduce my 60ft to around 1.65-1.70. The trap speed is indicative of a car with enough power to run a 10. Hopefully I achieve my goal this year

An Aussie e90 n54 335i holds WR at the moment with a Single turbo setup and a 2 speed powerglide transmission. Its running 10.17 @ 134mph with a 1.5s 60 ft from memory.

Edit: Sorry didn't realise this was n55 specific, but useful info for you nonetheless.

Yeah curious on N55's but wow nice car.
I'm 330 rwkw on Dyno Dynamics.
Gotta say I've always been envious of the N54, too bad when i bought my car I never even planned on any mods. Hopefully the N55 gets somewhere with MHD/S3 turbos.
Don't think I've ever had a 60ft below 2.1 or so.
Stupid DCT.

Wow!

Certainly making some serious horsepower, but if you want to go quick at the track you're going to need to change the torque converter in the ZF.

Our 135i is my daily work car.
My weekend driver is a naturally aspirated V8 that weighs 3,900lbs (1,773kg) and has run 11.08 @ 123mph with 1.52 60' times on Mickey Thompson drag radials. Has also run a few 1.7's and a best of 1.67 60' on 275/30/19 Kumho KU39 street tyres.
My point being that this car is setup as a good compromise for drag racing and cruising.
Current converter has 4,200rpm flash stall with full lockup.
Have driven across Australia in 2014 with 5,500 converter with lockup.

Thanks. Yeh N55 with DCT will be a bit slower than n54 with ZF 6AT. Most people struggle launching the BMW DCTs found in the 135i/335i cars. Good times nevertheless

Yeh I have a built ZF 6HP21 transmission by Nizpro. The upgrades include:

- Billet input shaft
- Billet intermediate shafts
- Billet intermediate drum
- Additional Excedy friction discs

I still have the stock torque converter but can still launch at 3200rpm. I know of another e92 owner who has an upgraded box from RVO with an high stall but he still struggles to launch past 3000rpm. I am waiting for a custom TCU tune once it becomes available, this should improve shift times and help me dip into the 10s.

The nizpro box I have with stock turbos has run 11.25@120.5 mph with a 1.57 sec 60 ft

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...32976876751276



Not sure if I can replicate 1.57 sec 60 ft with my bigger Hexon RR700 turbos with slightly slower spool characteristics, but ill try and get into high 1.6s hopefully

You might want to try the Alpina TCU software. Its out there in the interwebs. It up's the gear pressure for more positive shifts in Sport mode. In "D" it shifters earlier than the stock program.

Turbo cars are very hard to get to leave the line hard.

Our other car is Territory Turbo Ghia with standard gearbox and converter, this car has run 11.88 @ 116mph with 1.9 60'. With almost double the power of the standard engine I've been able to foot stall this car to approximately 3,000rpm, but the 60' times are still very slow.

Still a strong believer in the 60' is all in the converter and gears.

Yeh am running the latest Alpina software at the moment. The shift speed improves over stock

Yeh not saying I won't ever get a high stall. You are right in that it will improve 60ft if i can stall to 4000rpm. I'll see how I go this year at the track and make a call. Thanks for your input!

Latest willowbank log I was targeting 25psi and tapering to 23psi but as you will see IAT is really up there.
Yes I'm using the pure inlet pipe.
Ok you can't upload csv. Files so here is a pdf of a screenshot.

They are still in development.
I've emailed Pure and they say the "should" be rhd compliant.
I believe it's a couple of months away.
Ps2 is a great turbo but since I'm already vtt s2 I would get little gain.
