Garrett? Like the people that make the chips? Might not be a scam after all.

The kit looks pretty complete. Just wondering where the Intercooler goes. if it were me, I'd stick it between the grill and radiator, nice space for a small one there. It says it's boosting 1 bar and hitting 200hp.. Wonder how much you can raise the boost on that puppy 'fore you blow a piston or two... which reminds me, anyone know of any aftermarket pistons for an m42? Either High Compression or Low Compression, i'm interested in information for either

Garrett is a turbo manufacturer. I have no idea about their chips (maybe another garrett?), but have worked with Garrett turbos for diesel applications (enhanced performance through clearance reducing abradable coatings on the compressor as well as catalyically active coatings on the turbine).

200 hp does not sound unreasonable. Not sure what boost you need, but don't expect much above 200 from the 1.9

Don't buy that kit unless you know how to make it work properly.

bah, jim, don't be so negative!

anything can be accomplished, with enough time and money

i disagree about not being able to get much more than 200hp from a 'ti'. one of the guys here has his 'ti' at around 260hp, from the M42. of course, he refuses to give any details, but he's got the dyno printout and the gtech confirms it. one of these days i'll get the bastard to tell me, hehe.


anywho, my idea with the turbo was to get a custom built front mount intercooler, get a big turbo, see if i can find some pistons and see how much boost i can put in.

See, now you are into the realm where I had to stop myself and look closely: I can do a six conversion for the same (or close) money, have 240HP (before any mods are done- and we all are well aware of the mods available for the M3, including blowers and turbos, if you're REALLY sick... 360hp anyone??)and have reliable performance for 200K miles...

Now maybe some of you out there thinking along the turbo/blower with internal work maybe understand the six conversion is not such a bad deal afterall... 3K for a D/A blower, probably 2K for cams and head work, a few hundred (or more) for pistons, boring, balancing and blueprinting the four ????$... Once you add it all up, it just wasn't worth it to me, to have 'braging rights' (260 from the 1.9 IS impressive) but what about reliability, and daily driveability??? I can hop in my car now, and drive cross country, with no worries about where to get 100 octane, or overheating issues, or throwing a rod, or dry-running (and siezing) a turbo... BUT, if something DID go wrong, I know all the parts are 'off the shelf' BMW factory parts, so parts are as close as my nearest dealer...

Speed IS just a question of money, but smart spending will yeild better (in my opinion) longevity... I'm not afraid to spend my money, but I always do LOTS or research before I drop a dime...

Personal note: my goal is 320 (no blower) HP with equal or better reliability to the stock motor. This is just how I do things. You are all free to do as you wish.

Hm.. I already smoke lots of cars, and I have ~145hp... smoked a 330ci and a 540i (both automatics of course) last week....

110mph? what the heck? mine hits like 120mph before the stupid speed limiter kicks in... plus, ain't cha in the states? where the hell do you plan on developing all that speed off the track?

just wondering.

I have that turbo kit in my car. its okaly for a starter. you will have to change a coup items on it, but it is a good buy compare to a downing atlanta supercharger @ $4000. I ve spent a total of $2000 on the kit and i get a pretty good 7psi boost from it. If you have $$$ to spare i would just go for an engine swap but this is a way to go.

Check out www.kormanfastbmw.com They sell that kit and list some good info on it. It is put together by Mosselman. It brings the horsepower up to 182, and the torque to 187, with no internal modifications.
