All it takes is money and you can have as much HP as you want. Do you mean tune and FBO only?

477whp is the highest so far. Done with a Vargas turbo.

The stock N55 single turbo is incapable of realistically crossing the 400whp mark. If that's your goal you will need to go to an upgraded turbo option.

FBO with some meth or couple gallons of E85 will put you there.

I have every performance mod available, you will only get up about 388whp on a good day and you would have to mix in some e85 and mix your own Meth instead of buying premixed stuff. We are all waiting for an RB turbo upgrade, the vargas one is much too pricey and it barely made 477whp. Look at the bright side, we have tons of torque and torque wins races most of the time!

I'm running the Vishnu flex fuel kit, with the rev 2.5 and OpenFlash tablet as my back end flash. Max power on the tune is at 70% ethanol. I'm going to the dyno in a week or so.

FBO + meth/E85 blend will get you over 400whp. How far over the mark depends largely on how your local dyno reads.

Yep, we tuned Tony's stage 3 car several months back. If your goal is to make absolutely crazy amounts of power then there is VTT stage 3, our single turbo kits(that we will be releasing details on soon), the FFTEC kits and couple other kits.

Stock Turbo N54s, Full Bolt-Ons are capable of over 400 WHP on 93 pump + mid-400s with a straight E85 tune. I'm have tunes that do both on my N54 335, strict COBB PROtune.

Find the right dyno and you can have any number you want.

Seriously though they dyno you are using can make a big difference in numbers. See my sig. Those are same day dynos.

Dynos are very subjective, which is why I'd much rather quantify the gains... I know that I stock baseline'd at 280, 93 octane PRotune'd to 410 (+130) and then straight E85 to 440 (+160).


End of the day, 1/4 mile & 60-130s are the end all, be all for determining performance.
