To what extent is that inlet pipe contributing to peak power?

From a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is nothing and 10 is a lot, how much performance increase are you feeling with this full FBO setup?

On paper it looks amazing

Great results!

I have all your above mods to fit apart from the catback and spark plugs.

Have you considered running meth injection?

100% when you drive the car you know its modified, it's quick! Stock was great, but with this extra power, its insane. I'd say 8+, traction control light is always flashing when you step on it haha! I'd say this power level is perfect for the M2, although there's nothing wrong with a little more power

proTUNING Freaks themselves recommended those spark plugs & gap. I don't think it's necessary at this power level, but doesn't hurt to have?

Nice! Yes, I was actually reading into meth injection, seems pretty cool! Personally, I was looking into using it for just cooling purposes (and valve cleaning) + anything to help 91 octane. So, if I were to do it, I would not retune my car for methanol, as I'm not confident in the different failsafe options. So if the meth injection were to fail I wouldn't have to worry about knock or some catastrophic failure due to the additional timing/boost meth injection could allow with a meth specific tune. I know it works great though, definitely a sweet mod. However, I don't have any plans to run it.

Great job!
Seems the N55 in this thing was the cheap way out on BMW's part. So much effort to add HP. On my S55 I was able to get 502 at the wheels with just a JB4, MPE and E85 mixing..... no other mods period.

This is going to be a big change from my M4....

Was your run on STD Smoothing 0 or Smoothing 5 ?

Been waiting to see your result for a while and now it doesn't disappoint!

Dzenan and Halim have been custom tuning OP's car and mine at the same time and on the similar tuning strategy as it appears.

I can attest to the fact that OP's numbers are very legit and consistent. From log, 400whp was put down with absolute poise. No pushing at all, timing target is hit with little to none correction, WDGC is not even maxed out, cooling is more than adequate. In my opinion, 400 whp is somehow even conservative, compared to all those hype numbers reported all over here.

On top of OP's build, I have a STG1 turbo, a 300 cell cat and OCT AKI 93 (RON 98). I started doing 18psi flat and it holds up fine. See details here
http://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1416389
But PTF decided to back off a little bit for the sake of HPFP reliability in long term. My map isn't finalized yet. where I am now I am not stronger than OP anywhere below 5500rpm. Even above that I'm just having 1psi more boost and 10% less WDGC (translate to some less heat and less backpressure). Thanks to the extra 1psi and DCT, I maybe put down some 15whp more. Very marginal return for the investment right?

OP's result just proves how M2 is different than other EWGs. Stock turbo and turbofold are great! See below log comparison from 5500/6000/6500/7000rpm, power wise. Left column being OP's car, right being mine.

Huge congrats!

Thanks, smoothing 5. I requested to get a proper PDF of the dyno runs (dyno shop's printer was down) once they send me that I'll post it.

Awesome results bro. Throw me also in the 91 octane club our here in Cali and your results give me hope! I just picked up my car today so it'll be a little bit before I get there. I just wish I understood more of how to properly setup and tune a car

Congrats! I was just wondering about the difficulty of installing the Pure inlet pipe.

Thanks! For the inlet, I was able to install it by separating the two pieces. I tried it as one, and the clamp got stuck in a wiring harness and was basically stuck for HOURS! So frustrating lol, so I highly suggest you install the machined piece into the turbo first then the modified plastic piece with the clamp.

Removal wasnít too bad, you just need the right tools (extensions) to remove the one bolt from the turbo AND one screw from the PCV hose sensor/mount to the engine block from the inlet itself. You will need to remove the PCV hose, not sure if itís possible without doing that.

I worked from the top for the PCV hose/sensor and worked from underneath for the bolt on the turbo. Removed the stock inlet from the top, and installed both components from PURE from the top.

Be careful not to break the tabs on the PCV hose on the valve cover side when removing.
