New ECS Crank Seal Protection N52/N54/N55/S55 Sep 24, 2021

Who doesn't like insurance against engine failure? N52/N54/N55/S55 BMW owners commonly experience a shredded serpentine belt, which can get sucked in through the crank seal on the front of the engine. Oil and coolant leaks are often the culprit, causing the serpentine belt to slip past the crank pulley, getting sucked in behind the harmonic balancer, moving its way past the crank seal, and ultimately ending up in the oil pan. Once belt fragments are in the pan, tiny pieces can block the oil pickup, get caught in the timing chain, or end up in your valve cover. Any and all of these scenarios cause expensive damage at best and engine failure at worst. Our engineers designed a cost-effective and reliable crank seal protection plate for N52/N54/N55/S55 BMW engines that protects the front crank seal from a shredded serpentine belt getting sucked into the engine. We recommend these as inexpensive insurance for all N52, N54, N55 and S55 owners.

Turner Lightweight Flywheel N54/N55 Sep 24, 2021

The Turner lightweight flywheel is designed to offer the perfect balance of comfort, smoothness, durability, and performance on any N55 powered vehicle. At 18.6lbs, 10 lbs lighter than stock, it offers significantly reduced inertia for quicker throttle response, improved rev-matching, and faster acceleration. However, unlike ultra-light aluminum flywheels it still offers a smooth idle, quiet operation with minimal increase to NVH, and smooth OE-like engagement for easy daily driver duty.

New Turner Motorsport Charge Pipe - G20 B58 M340i Sep 23, 2021

The G20 B58 OE charge pipe is prone to failure; after constant heat cycling, the factory plastic becomes very brittle, leading to cracks and boost leaks, and ultimately entire part failures. The OE charge pipe has also been proven to break once under increased boost pressure. Replace the weak OE charge pipe with the Turner Motorsport G20 B58 charge pipe for increased air flow, and increased throttle response. You can also safely turn up the boost on your B58 once this kit is installed, and not worry about the problematic factory piece.

Performance Throttle Body Upgrade - B8 S4/S5 3.0T Sep 22, 2021

The stock throttle body is smaller than the supercharger inlet creating a massive restriction and directly responsible for power loss. ECS Tuning's in-house designed and engineered Performance Throttle Body Upgrade will do the trick. Designed with a smooth flow path in mind, we start off with a wire reinforced silicone inlet that resists collapse and is stepped in the internal diameter to create a smooth transition to the throttle body. We then went with a high quality OEM Mopar 80mm throttle body that is 10mm larger and has 30% more cross sectional area than OE. The final step is the cast aluminum adapter housing with port matched internal diameters to provide the smoothest flow path possible. On our test car equipped with IE dual pulley 93 octane 80mm throttle body tune, ECS exhaust (valves open, stock catalytic converters), ECS supercharger heat exchanger, ECS Kohlfaser Luft Technik Intake, ECS supercharger and crank pulley, we saw 415 HP and 385 TQ at the WHEELS. See below for full specs and detailed installation guide!

The deep thumb grips allow for a race-inspired feel, allowing you to take better control of your VW while driving aggressively through sharp corners or on some back-road 'twisties!'

New Turner E36 Tubular Control Arms Kits Sep 15, 2021

Turner Motorsport control arms are designed in-house to be a longer, stronger, and lighter weight alternative to expensive (and boring) OEM replacements. If you're overhauling the front suspension on your E36, this is the right move for you! Turner’s race kit provides +10mm more track width (per side) than stock. Wider track width reduces the amount of load transfer to the outside when cornering, increases cornering power, and allows more inner clearance for meaty wheel and tire setups or brake ducts. Turner’s drift kit provides 65mm more track width (per side) than stock. This kit creates clearance for 60 degrees of steering angle when installed with our Turner angle kit and rack spacers. Their Roll Center Correction Race Kit corrects your roll center and improves handling, it also provides increased steering response and bump steer correction. Thanks to the use of their rack limiters, you can maintain the same steering angle as before, while drastically decreasing steering wheel input. After the kit was installed on a E36 M3 test vehicle equipped with a Z3 2.7 turn lock to lock steering rack, it only required 2 full turns lock to lock. A reduction of 26%! Bump steer is also correctable to virtually 0, thanks to spacers to adjust tie rods up or down. Z3 2.7 Steering Rack will require different rack spacers (see ES4213307). When you lower a car, it drastically changes the geometry of the suspension. While lowering a car makes it handle better by lowering the center of gravity, the roll center is negatively impacted, increasing the roll moment, which causes cornering forces to have more of an effect on the body roll of the vehicle. This is normally ignored because the stiffer lowering springs make the issue less noticeable, but ultimately grip is lost, and body roll is increased. Once the roll center has been corrected it is immediately apparent how much the performance of the vehicle had been suffering prior. By correcting the lower outer ball joint location with the Turner Roll Center Correction Race Kit, the instantaneous center of rotation is raised, bringing the roll center much closer to the center of gravity, and significantly decreasing roll movement. This minimizes body roll, provides more grip, and ultimately leads to an improved and predictable driving feel.

New ECS Rear Stress Bars For Your MK7 Sep 15, 2021

Our ECS Tuning Rear Stress Bar Kit stiffens the chassis in the rear of your MK5/6 in the area most prone to chassis flex during hard cornering or changes in road surfaces.

Chris's BMW E30 325is Build List Sep 14, 2021

When I was 17, I went to look at a 1984 318i with my father. I didn’t know how to drive stick at the time, so he test drove it on my behalf, and loved it. Despite making barely 100hp decades prior, he enjoyed the driving engagement, and how solid and well-built it felt. Since then, my family has owned numerous E30s, including my current daily 325is. I bought this in 2018 as a project with 320k miles; at that time the hood wouldn’t even open. Many hours were spent refreshing and enhancing the driving enjoyment. Now she soldiers on with 357k miles, and no signs of stopping.

New Turner F30/F32 Carbon Fiber Front Lip Spoilers Aug 31, 2021

The Turner F30/F32 M Sport Front Lips were CAD designed in-house as an aggressive accent to the F3X M Sport flawless factory body lines. The Turner design engineers took particular care to provide a cohesive, "OEM+" look in part by taking design cues from the factory F3X M Performance front lip, & taking the form up a notch: additional protrusion, higher kick winglets, extra spacing between the center of the bumper & the lip surface. The result is supremely well-fitting, comfortably aggressive, turn-around-&-look-at-it-while -you're-walking-away, carbon fiber jewelry.

New ECS Rear Subframe Brace MK5/6/7 Aug 24, 2021

The factory rear subframes in the VW MK5, MK6, and MK7 are perfectly capable of withstanding everyday commutes but are woefully ill-prepared to handle beefier sway bars, stiffer suspension components, and aggressive driving. We found a sturdier solution: With the ECS Rear Subframe Brace you can reinforce the subframe at the sway mounting points to ensure the added pressures of hard driving and stiffer components will be deflected through our brace rather than deflecting the rear subframe.
