VTT N54 OE Plus Turbo Upgrade 135/335(RHD)/535/Z4
Silicone inlet and turbo outlet pipes are also strongly recommended as upgrades over the stock plastic and aluminum pipes. Since both are prone to cracks, the silicone will be much stronger and almost no chance of a disappointing boost leak. Turbo replacement is the best time to add the silicone hoses. There are two styles of turbo inlet pipes - with stock diverter valves (DV) or with aftermarket blow-off valve (BOV). For the turbo outlet, there is no standardized connection to the intercooler so you will need to make note of which type you have and select the appropriate adapter from the options list.
- Option A - 2.5" and 90* turn up from the intercooler (CPE, AA, ER Sport, CXRacing)
- Option B - 2.5" and angled up from the intercooler (AD Engineering, ETS, Helix, Cobb, ER Compeition)
- Option C - 3.0" and angled up from the intercooler (VRSF)
- Option D - 2.75" and angled up from the intercooler (Wagner EVO)
- Option E - 3.0" and straight out from the intercooler (AA Race)
Install Kit - an Install Kit is also offered that includes all of the additional parts and pieces that will need to be replaced during this install (gaskets, hardware, etc).
Oil Recommendation - modern engine oil is formulated for emissions and to be environmentally friendly. The additives in current oil lowers the oil's ability to withstand high temperatures and stresses, lowering its shear strength and its lubricating properties. Vargas recommends oils with high ZDDP (zinc and phosphorus) content that will better protect and cool the turbo bearings. Examples of high-zinc oils are Red Line Race, Red Line Euro, Motul 300V Racing, Joe Gibbs Racing, Valvoline VR-1 oil, and most Diesel-spec oils that you can buy off-the-shelf. Some oils, especially the Race type, will need more frequent oil changes and may be harmful to catalytic converters.
WHP rating: 500. This rating is used to compare various stages of Vargas turbo kits. There is no advertised horsepower gain with this kit as it depends on your supporting mods and tuning. The rating is provided as a reference to use in your tuning plans. Custom N54 tuning is recommended to match these turbos to your existing mods and upgrades.
