Vertigo created the thread LFPF Install advice ( submersible fuel hose ).
" In an attempt to try and contribute as much as I do on N54tech, I wanted to give anyone installing a LPFP a word of caution.

Specifically, you 535 guys who have to remove the plastic hose the cuts across the tank over to the drivers side from the LPFP outlet and gets replace with rubber fuel hose. MAKE SURE you use GATES submersible Fuel hose GATES part number is 27093 for 1ft of 5/16 inner diameter. You will need about 18" - 22". If you use any other fuel hose the outside layer will split exposing the braided core and the fuel will escape from the hose. This specific hose must be used. "

" Jake has probably spent more time tuning that car than 90% of other the N54 protuners combined have spent tuning N54s and he has the rev limiter where it is for a reason. "

I understand the N54 may never be a very high reving engine but there should be room to increase it past 7200rpm. Even increasing it to 8 or 8.5k, from looking at the dyno, would be a substantial increase in power.

To go on, why install VAC springs that can hit 10k rpm(claimed by vac) when there is zero valve float with the stock springs at this power level and rpm range?
You have to factor in the bottom end as well. Piston speed and sidewall loading all factor into how much stress is applied to the bottom end. You can't just throw a built head on a stock bottom end and rev it to the moon (unless its a Honda). "

" From what I see gintani prices their stuff very competitively. For what you get vs the price its far more affordable than Dinan and some other companies who really over price their stuff. This is great new regardless though. "

@BuraQ, the ROM is really the easy part of figuring out how to flash the car. The ROM is just the data that you are manipulating. The hard part about flashing is figured out HOW to get the DME to accept the modified data... "

As stated, they do NOT need to be rebuilt. The wastegates needs to be ADJUSTED. This is something that is pretty straightforward and can be done before they are installed. Also, its OBO. "
