    Custom Single Turbo

    Hi, I want to share with you the building of my ST kit. The car is 2007 e92 335i AT and to this moment it was FBO with custom Stage1 hybrids. Before three weeks i left the car to my welder and he start to disassemble it. The kit will be with bottom mount tubular manifold something like AD and FFTEC, but with shorter and much equal in lenght runners with Vband flange. First i bought for the car an Owendevelopments ODGT3079HTA Mspec turbo(this is a heavily upgraded Garret GT30, most expensive one i found), but in the last moment i bought another one, bigger Owen ODGT3582HTZ Mspec with the latest in design HTZ wheel 5% more flow the HTA, Tial Vband .82 SS turbine housing. For now only the manifold is ready at 70-80%, but may be tomorrow it will be completed. The other mods on the car are:
    JB4 G5 ISO with backend
    Wagner FMIC
    Forge CP with Forge 50mm BOV
    Custom dual 2.5 exhaust made by the same person who builds the ST kit
    Stage 2 LPFP
    BMS OCC
    MFactory LSD
    RB PCV valve and cap
    Rogue transmission mounts
    and may be more.
    The injectors are 10k miles, NGK gapped plugs 1k miles and may be the coils are on 16k miles, ohh and HPFP at 10k with new LPFS. The intake ports and valves are cleaned before 500miles.

    As I said per email, very nice turbo selection you have there Click here to enlarge Basically a Xona Rotor just with a normal cast CHRA! It's a shame you won't see the nice anodized comp wheel once it's all installed. Looking fwd to more manifold progress pics!

    This is super impressive work. Looking forward to more pictures. Can't wait to see the finished product. Could you pm me with the price your fabricator is charging for one of these manifolds and a down pipe. Will you be recirculating the dump tube from the wastegate?

    Finally someone doing a "ram horn" style true equal length header / manifold on the N54. I really like this build man, solid turbo choice, everything looks well thought out, and extremely high quality!

    Looks like the AD kit to be honest lol, but yes awesome fabrication. Definitely a skilled welder and fabricator!

    I highly doubt a fabrication shop in England that is not involved in anything N54 has any idea what an AD kit is. They were commisioned to built this kit, and in my opinion are doing it the right way as far as header design. I have always been a bottom mount fan, but if you are going top mount, your kit is truly the only way to go. VM kit = Badass!

    I mean the guy stated it will be like a fftec and AD bottom mount kit in the first post so I'm sure he's shown his fabricator the manifolds and he got an idea from those. Our 535i bottom mount kit is in between those lines too, there is only so much you can do with the given amount of space.

    Were you ever considering doing a tubular bottom mount kit for the 335i/135i?
