Re: Soon to be gone BMW 328, replaced with?

I got a rare set of oem rails that match the mat finish of my headlight trim.

And my engine swap last year came with a mediocre big T28 turbo set up.  I knew I wanted a TD04 which my car came with stock but gutted and fitted with the biggest wheel I could fit.  So I found a steal on an new TD04HL-20T clipped billet aluminum turbine wheel/7cm.  I will be installing it with a nice tubular manifold.  On E85 this setup is dyno'd at nearly 400whp/435tq.  That is a bit silly for FWD so I am going to have a TQ limit in 1st and 2nd gear just like factory did then open up the flood gates at 60mph which is the start of 3rd gear.  With my LSD and 245 Pilot Super Sports I should be able to flat foot it in 3rd.

PSA:  255/35/18s fit perfectly on an Eibach equipped Dame.  My 245 PSS', two of them were sketchy.  I used it as an excuse to try the P4S and keep my sidewall ratio the same for a bit more pothole protection and get some more contact patch.

I am tuned'ish.  We were guessing on wastegate springs.  Sure enough the one in there was too weak to hold the boost as revs increased.  So we fudged it by cranking down on the wastegate rod which was a bit of a bandaid.   We saw a peak of 25-26psi at about 3000-3200rpms, but it was down to 18psi at 5500.  The goal is 22-23psi peak, and hold from 2500-55500.  In a couple of weeks we will put in the 14psi spring instead of the 8lb'er and retune.  Once the 93 is dialed in we will tune for the E85 which should net a couple more psi.    There is literally 0 missfire from off idle to 6200 in every gear.  Nice for a change.  Turns out the JZW tune I had was garbage like I thought.  It was pig rich(usually he is lean and mean) and the airmass requests were more for a turbo MUCH larger.  Glad I paid $500 for a "custom" tune with 3 files, two of which I never received.
