finally a 2 month fabrication/labor project with 4 months of research and design is finally being completed tommorrow.
My 89 535i will adorn her two turbo setup. we will try to dyno her then take her up to moroso speedway for track testing.

our ingredients are:
2-TD05 turbos @ 9psi each
1-Stars intercooler 2.5 (w)x 9.0 (h)x 18.5 (l)
1-bored out throttle body
1-hi-flow intake manifold
1-euro //M5 oil cooler
1-3:07 sideloader lsd with internal liquid cooling
2-cutom free flow exhaust headers
1-custom dual 2.5 free flow exhaust
1-Greddy twin chamber blow by valve
1-Alpina biturbo fuel pump (PRICEY)
1.Jag fuel cooler
before the mods the car dynoed at 154 rwhp & 174 ftlbs trqe
after tune up the spec went up to 181 rwhp & 206 ftlbs trqe
so now after hop up we are hoping that we will run a smooth constant 12-14 psi, and see at least low 300 hp at the wheels and surprise a few of these E39/E46 //M cars out there...(heh heh heh)

this is just a project that me and my friend took on for lack of a life after marriage! Ours wives felt better with us playing around on the cars when we were not playing around with them.....

COSTS:

2 turbos $1100
2 custom headers and exhaust p&l and installation $1500
1 stars intercooler $550
1 euro M5 oil cooler $275
1 hi flo manifold $750
