Oh i do remember something about a switchable plumb back> atmo one specifically made for the n54 though ?

Ed:

*Turbosmart Kompact Dual Port Blow Off Valve BMW N54 (135i/335i/535i/Z4)

Pretty damn expensive though.
Yeah.. They aint cheap and I'd need a new CP to use them anyway... I know Ian has Turbosmart DVs but don't know if it's those ones...

I have a set of Forge DVs but no CP to go with...

I know that the HKS is considered to be the loudest of the bunch but the fact that there are different vents you can get for it to change the sound is promising...

Also, as mentioned above, if it is too loud or I don't like the sound then I can get the plumb-back adapter for $30 and that should tone it down a heap...

ER Charge Pipe and HKS BOV Installed. Big thanks to Pete for the help...



Let me just say 2 things:

1: It's not quiet.

2: I'm going to lose my license coz all I want to do is power through the gears...

Nice build Angus, car is looking great!
Saw your post earlier on the exhaust. If you're after a Titanium exhaust alternative to Akra than Lightweight may be worth a look (same guys who make the 1M Motogp lip). Akra's are fantastic quality, but they do cost a pretty penny. Oystero has the only Lightweight titanium rear section in country at the moment

I may be able to save you some of the shipment costs, PM me if ur interested.

Me too... It doesn't appear to have come with any mounting hardware and if I have to drill out the plastic rivets that Ian mentioned in the other thread then I'm guessing I need to make a trip to Bunnings for some screws/bolts first?

That looks good quality.
Mine didn't come with hardware to mount, but just used replacement OE rivets which BMW had in stock.

Yes, #8

Like $2.50 each. I couldn't use them as they were too big for my rivet gun. Both Advan & NSC (installers) had their own generic ones. Just go to SCA and get some that don't need a rivet gun.
