Put my deposit down on a E90 thats already in transit so I will have it mid march. I wanted to find out whats a reputable place to get alot of work done at once, so far I'm planning the following in one extended vists:
Go: procede/xede, full exhaust (AA if theirs is available at this time), headers (if available), clutch upgrade, downpipe if I can still pass emissions in NY, atmospheric diverter valves (rice, whatever I think it will be fun) or BOV, possibly larger turbos and intercooler.
Show: fully body kit, most likely pre-painted so it will just need to be bolted on and maybe adjusted since I dont think the fitment will be perfect out of the box.

I would really like someone who would work their butts off on this car, as my goal is about 500hp at the crank if possible. The hardest part would probably be the larger turbos, so hopefully even without that the car can break somewhere near 400hp. But mainly I would love to get someone who can see this as a really interesting project and get everything done right and more or less in a timely manner.

Any suggestions? :thumbsup:

The issue you are going to come up against is since the 335 is such a new engine not many people are going to have experience with the turbo, this is the first turbo BMW has had in the US for quite some time.

Dont forget about your clutch too because putting down that much power will destroy a stock clutch.
