Hello everyone.

Now that Ive reached a new level with my 135i I figured it is time to start a thread to share my progress and what ive learned.

This is my 135i I track this car about once a month. Drift and Grip battle. Currently im running
-HPF 3.5 inch exhaust and your standard used craigslist down p!pes.
- metal + silicone passenger side inlets only
-7inch intercooler
-ER Charge Pipe
- RB 1s Stage 1 rb turbos.

Ive got through a million leaks and car has been mostly maintained by myself. Under a few occasions when I couldnt do a repair or install ( turbos , friend fried my dme with bummer boost software, and oil pan gasket) I had my local shop take care of me.

Fast forward to turbo upgrade--- RB made the process so easy btw.
I replaced almost all of my lines with new 3.5mm line from a race shop that made a huge difference for me. Also grabbed a few boost solenoids off a totaled 135i vert.

Sitting at 138K miles I started my new turbos with an 93 octane flash only.
Contacted Wedge/Ken after enough logs we needed a new lpfp
At that Point upgraded to your standard craigslist buy/forum used stage 2 pump.
That got the job done. made 446rwhp 435tq. The car was quick.

Just last week I emailed Wedge to buy a E50 flash.

He sent it to me in one night.
the result below 517rwhp 480tq
logs attached:

I desperately need a hood scoop for the inlets.. significant difference when its starving for air. Last log the inlets were getting proper air
I track the car so next I plan to work on suspension. Im not lowered and havent changed 1 thing with the suspension.
I checked most of my connections lines the night before I ran the dyno yesterday.These turbos havent been maxed out but Im not trying to achieve anything more than consistency of what I have now.

Got the car at 55k miles... 138k and 5-6yrs

Nice looking car. Always love pure black and white cars. Too hot here though at the beach. You have any track videos?

I really like the E50 curve, not crazy high power but I bet it would do great on the track...

The only video i have is of me on the track drifting.. I cant attach it through this site i have to post it on youtube first :/- may do that tonight after work.. Thanks for all the good feedback.. For a civic sized car having 300hp stock is great but 500 feels amazing.. I wasnt seeking much more than 400 when I bought the car

Yeah. I’m looking for a reliable 450 or so. No drifting for me though, AWD. Just want to have fun, roll race a bit.

have the same car. bought it 4 years ago at 50k and now sitting at 94k doing oil pan gasket/upgraded twins and water pump and tstat since and custom oil cooler. im still on the original wp. might want to lower the tq a little and make a little more linear, that rear end will come swinging out. i see you have the 1m front bumper with the lip, i forget which one that is, are you actually using the two holes for brake cooling like they are supposed to be used? i have the same bumper and almost got that lip but went with a kersher. i will probably keep the car for another 5 years. i track like 15 days a year and just alway keep good oil and let the car warm up before getting on it. on the track a good 93 tune is plenty of power. car is real nice.

@WedgePerformance or justin i notice some tune twins for afrs mid 11's, these seem to be low to mid 12s which i always thought was more ideal. is it car by car basis? also load actual vs load requested i thought would always be closer. i still have jb4 but play with my own bin and will be looking for some help tuning the twins.
