Don’t get me wrong this is cool and a good amount of effort. But I remember reading this thread before and lol’ing at the lack of attention to handling or stopping whilst chucking a load of power up front.

I drove a stock R56 once and after a while forgot it didn’t have the same brake setup as my R53, this led to some brown trousers at a roundabout
ahah u may learn how to drive the r56 then :p

just kidding, i updated my brakes and suspensions, just didn't post about it

@lupodo, sorry my ignorance but why do you go to a TIAL Q50 BOV instead of a Diverter valve? I have read, and over the internet there are many opinions, that going to a BOV may impact the MAF sensor etc... So, my big question here is, why should you pick a BOV instead of a DV? Thanks for your time.

According to the pics, this is a "UK build" --- no MAF installed. However, if the OEM build had a DV in the turbo, you probably should have used a DV replacement instead of a BOV. I get all kinds of CEL's when I try to configure my DV as a BOV, but I have a MAF. And, depending on the specifics of your boost problem, this could be the root cause.

old block have been sent to Veicomer for Darton sleeve installation, so I would have a spare rock solid short block
