Below is a list of N54 powered vehicles in the 9's, along with any details such as videos, build links or time slips. Post here as they roll in or anyone I've missed.

Congrats to Daniel Buchner, @101duck for being the first one on this list!


(I know this isn't a normal list but I am not putting in a bunch of effort for one fast person)

So the requirement is that the block has to be an n54?

They put the 5 liter V12 BMW block and everything including airplanes.

Its an N54 in an e90 chassis with the original DME and most if not all of the factory interior. Like it or not(the power glide) its the fastest.

Not trolling being serious if you don't mind roughly how expensive is that swap and how much power you think can hold, also how bad is it to dd does it just lay on converter in high gear so kinda feels like cvt when driving light?

It really wasn't a like it or not question. This wasn't meant as an affront. It was a question. I have no ideas what you guys consider when one says "n54 - 9 sec club".

The car belongs to @101duck and he’s rarely on the forums and he can answer the questions himself.

Sup, sorry rarely on here. thanks for my own thread haha, lonely, hopefully jacks here soon.

car was dd until recently (purchased f80) it dd fine honestly, obviously if you've never driven a car with a large stall before then it's hard to explain, but yeah basically, take off in first converter flares, car moves, shift into second and just cruise around like its a cvt until you stop somewhere, then just back to first and take off again. on the highway it sat on around 2800rpm or so at 100km/h. fuel consumption was around 14l to 100km, but thats on e85, and it was never meant to be good on fuel.

If you like your car to drive like it's stock, then it's probably not for you. But it's not the mod that makes it a dedicated track car that's for sure. very street friendly still.

as for how expensive, i have no idea in the usa, but obviously doing the whole lot myself, with a full built box (reid case, billet gearset, etc) it owed me around 9k aud.

this box is rated at 2500hp, Obviously being a full weight car at around 3800lbs trans brake launches are extra harsh on it, but it takes it fine. If I built my car again, I wouldn't change a thing. It's too much fun to drive with the glide and the aggressive power curve, wins plenty roll races, near on unstoppable on the street and still has aircon and a stereo, and man can it lay down a skid.

Nah, I still have the 335, it's just no longer a daily driver. Wife didn't approve of me wanting to street race every supercharged LS car i found. lol

I had no idea a powerglide could even be considered even close to street friendly, lmao

Mad props for an overall badass build, love that it's a sedan too.

@101duck since it’s officially a dedicated track car, think it’s about time to throw her on a diet and gut the unnecessary weight?

If you want 9s you need a glide or a th400 or something honestly. And probably a rear end and and around 700whp+. It's mostly the trans and launch for these cars, and if you're asking, it's gonna be around 5x what duck spent. He spends 9k usd himself, you spend 50k getting it done. Any less, expect 10s or 11s

From teh 10.3 post they made a few weeks back.


Here are some details on the car-

Owner- Samson McGinnis
Built by Dirty Euro Customs in SLC, UT
DirtyEuro is owned by Richard Cheeseman
Tuned by Troy Nielsen

Mods-
FTI stage 3 TH400
Pure Stage 2’s
PSP 900 FMIC
VS stage 2+
Dual nozzle meth

Running e30 and meth at 21psi we did a 10.6 then cranked it up to 24-25psi with 8-9 degrees advance and ran the 10.353. Ran out of gearing, bouncing off limiter at about the 1000’ mark so now we are going from a 26” to a 28” tire to hopefully pick up about 10mph.

The short term goal is high 9’s and should be attainable with the current setup IMO.
