    • And the BMW N54 horsepower record officially stands at 725 wheel horsepower - E92 335i with Vargas VTX-R 63 Stage 3 turbo upgrade, Cobb Flash, and PTF Pro Tune

      Well, it seems the back and forth of N54 tuning horsepower records is over... for now. Earlier this month Vargas Turbo Tech and Pro Tuning Freaks (with a Cobb flash) set the N54 hosrepower record at 693 wheel horsepower. That basically obliterated what anyone else had hit on this platform. A competing tuner with a single turbo (the Vargas VTX63 upgrade consists of twin turbos) N54 upgrade kit out of nowhere pulled out suspect numbers that eeked out a few more wheel horsepower.

      This became an ego pissing match of sorts but Vargas and Pro Tuning Freaks went back to the dyno to make some adjustments and managed to surprisingly quickly and easily take the horsepower record right back (and where it rightfully belongs due to the breakthrough being thanks to the Vargas work with the High Pressure Fuel Pump) with a 725 wheel horsepower pull.

      A video is included below along with two graphs. The E92 335i is equipped with a Pro Tuning Freaks pro tuning using the Cobb flash system, 109 octane race gas, meth injection, and of course the Vargas Turbo Technologies VTX-R 63 (GTX2863R) twin turbo upgrade and HPFP upgrade.

      Congratulations to Vargas, PTF, and Cobb for pushing the platform into new territory.

        1) Dyno numbers
        2) 1/4 mile or 60-130mph time
        4) lap times
        5) hellaflush

        That is the kit I ultimately want.

        If I go stage three will I get a free model girlfriend @VargasTurboTech ?
        You left out option 3: you've got so much game, even your car has game

        Option 3: Your wife/gf approved your kit so long as her car becomes just as fast.

        Serious answer: any gold digger worth her salt would prefer you didn't buy any of those, and instead held onto the money--so you can spend it on her.

        How is she going to know to dig for gold if she doesn't see any on display?

        My wife is currently pushing me to mod her Audi. She doesn't understand that her 2.0t will never be as fast as my car though. Poor girl.

        Get her an AWE Tune + if you ever race, it'll add ~45 HP/75 TQ. And if you ever "race", give her some hope & only go 1/2 throttle

        Hilariously inappropriate.
