The World's 7 Fastest N54s: 135i, 335i, and 535i Horsepower Records

The World’s 7 Fastest N54s: 135i, 335i, and 535i Horsepower Records

Posted on

The World’s 7 Fastest N54s: 135i, 335i, and 535i Horsepower Records. Even 11 years after the N54 engine was initially debuted, horsepower world records are still being set constantly. We have been waiting on the first 900hp N54, and one business declares to have actually broken this barrier. Today we are bringing you a post of the 7 fastest N54’s on the planet.

The imagine setting an N54 world record are probably really far out of sight for just about each that is reading this. Most of the fastest N54’s function fully built motors and a modification list that will run you well over $50,000. The majority of the mods on their list will be things you have actually never heard of … so to make this learn more reasonable for some of our readers, we are going to look at the fastest single turbo N54’s, the fastest upgraded Twin-Turbo N54, and the fastest N54’s operating on the stock turbochargers.

Part 1: The 4 Fastest Single Turbo N54 Develops

If I wanted a single turbo BMW, I would have simply bought the N55 … with that being said, sadly breaking 750whp+ more than likely requires a single turbo setup. The other regrettable element is that single turbo builds are extremely costly. But anyways, here are the 4 fastest N54’s out there, and all occur to be 335i’s. A second thing to note is that they are all manual transmissions. The DCT transmissions just can’t manage the torque that a handbook can. , if you are shooting for 600whp+ you will desire to have a manual.

When I started composing this post, EMP Tuning and their Kraken N54 had the N54 world record with 920WHP … well, within the past month, that record has actually been beaten! We now have a brand-new world record being available in at 978WHP!

1. Motiv Motorsports – 978WHP + 776TQ – E90 335i

Motiv Motorsports manufactures the Motiv 900 Single Turbo Package, and just recently (January 2018) broke the N54 world record with a near 1,000 whp dyno pull! Coming in at 978WHP, this is the closest the N54 has actually concerned hitting the 1,000 club. As you can imagine, this motor is totally constructed out with created rods, pistons, and the whole 9-yards. This run was a boost-only pull, indicating no Nitrous or other power adders! Have a look at this dyno pull:

3. The Panda – 890WHP + 793TQ – 2008 BMW 335i

The Panda is another single turbo build by EMP-Tuning, runing a WedgePerformance tune, and features a very similar setup to their 920WHP N54 we just featured above. The size of the turbo in this beast will eat your kid! Once again, we are on the E92 335i platform, featuring a 6-speed manual transmission and a mod list that will leave you realizing you will probably never have 900HP on your N54. And a shout-out to EMP Tuning for developing the two fastest N54’s on the planet.

4. 939WHP + 862TQ – 2007 BMW 335i Sedan.

This develop by Amit P. breaks the existing N54 world record from EMP Tuning by 20WHP. Why am I featuring it at # 4 instead of # 2? Well, to strike these Dyno numbers, Amit used a 125 shot of Nitrous. In our viewpoint, power boosters such as NOS shoudn’t be counted when you are taking a look at power records. The two cars above didn’t include any NOS to hit their numbers, so they would likely put down more than this N54 if they had.

Amit’s car was tuned by Ken Atkinson at WedgePerformance. Ken is a leading N54 tuner and provides terrific custom-made tunes for anybody aiming to enhance performance and reliability by tailoring their tune to their particular car and setup.

Regardless, this is still super impressive. Amit is running 35psi currently which is crazy, and has plans to get that number up to 40psi for 2018. His car is a work in development, and he doesn’t share much details about the build, but here is what we could gather, together with a youtube video of his car breaking the 800whp barrier:

Part 2: The Fastest Twin-Turbo N54 Build.

Single-turbo N54 develops without a doubt will produce higher HP than twin-turbo builds, but that isn’t to state you can’t produce some serious power without giving up the platform the N54 was built on. An updated twin-turbo setup is far more affordable than swapping in a single-turbo setup and teaser, why have only one turbo when you can have two?

I know a lots of people have been waiting for our updated turbo guide … we are working on it! Register for our subscriber list and you will get an alert when that post is published! I assure we only send like one email monthly …

1. 847WHP + 726TQ – Vargas Twin-Turbo N54 on 25.4 psi.

This Vargas Twin setup holds the record for greatest horsepower N54 with 847WHP … within 100WHP of the fastest single-turbo setup. Obviously here we have a developed motor with created rods, pistons, and a totally ported head operating on 100% E85. This setup was running 25.4 psi, which is still shy of Vargas turbo’s record of 29.3 psi on the very same turbo’s.

This car put down 776WHP on 21.6 psi and caught a world record on the 1/2 mile at 170.49 miles per hour with this setup! The owner wished to run the half mile at 25.4 psi but stated that the car was near incredibly dangerous and unmanageable at 21.6 psi and didn’t want to take the risk.

Part 3: The 2 Fastest Stock-Turbo N54’s.

If you have read our 500hp N54 guide, you know that you can achieve a 500hp N54 for a mere $1,500 … well at that price you will be landing 500hp at the crank … and more like 450hp to the wheels. To get to 500whp on an N54, you will need updated outlets and inlets, which we go over in the guide. Running upgraded inlets and outlets and E85, the N54 stock turbo’s can break this 500whp barrier. Let’s have a look at the world records.

I would likewise keep in mind that the claimed stock turbo world record is 523whp, however this was achieved on a various Dyno than the N54 requirement. If you dyno it on anything else, the standard dyno is a Dynojet and people will discount your numbers. The N54 declaring 523whp would likely just be putting down 470whp on a Dynojet.

1. 509WHP + 575TQ – E92 335i.

This stock turbo N54 is FBO (full bolt-on) with ugraded inlets and outlets, a Phase 1 Fuel-it LPFP and a custom tune by BQ Wedge Performance using a Cobb Accessport. The car was running 24psi of increase. At 24psi of increase, this engine probably will not last long without needing upgraded turbo’s.

Here is the dyno run:

2. 500WHP + 540TQ – 2007 335i – Automatic Transmission.

This is the only automatic transmission featured on this list … while the manual transmissions can deal with much more HP, 500whp won’t break your automatic transmission. This N54 was running FBO, with inlets and outlets, and 100% E85.
