    Alright so I did some searching but couldn't find much info. I'm having wg rattle and smoke so I'm going to be choosing a single turbo setup. Do I need a PI or upgraded hpfp/lpfp? Only going for ~550hp.

    I have an '07 335i with the following mods:
    BMS DP
    Magnaflow exhaust
    ER Chargepipe w/Tial BOV
    VRSF 7.5" FMIC (ordering soon)

    Single turbo, upgraded lpfp, fmic, a flash and Jb4 or whatever your prefer to use.

    For 550whp a Stage1 low pressure upgrade is probably good enough. What is the intended fuel?

    I'll be running 93 pump, not sure where to get a hold of e85 in GA.

    You'll be fine then. Without E85 the fueling requirements are a lot simpler. May want to consider meth injection down the road.

    Thank you so much! I'm sure I'll go that route once I crave more power from my car.

    If it were me, i'd just spend the extra coin on a Stage 2 LPFP. Especially if your current factory LPFP has any kind of age on it. The Stage one iirc still relies on the stock LPFP to feed it. So if the Stocker fails you'll still have to replace it anyway. May as well take it out of the equation completely.

    I was comparing prices between stage 1 and stage 2 LPFP and seems like I'll get more bang for my buck going with stage 2. Plus, more peace of mind knowing I won't experience fueling issues.

    I live in Dalton, Ga. I actually stumbled upon an e85 pump in Ringgold yesterday. Only about a 15 minute drive.

    Haven't looked into that brand FMIC, I think I'll stick to the 7.5" VRSF. Thanks for the offer though.

    I thought this was a good topic as well. I wanted to make a list of 'highly recommended' supporting mods. Perhaps PCV kit with OCC should be on that list as well.

    Don't over do it too soon. Just buy the critical stuff, if you spend too much and you feel like that, you'll end up wanting to sell like a bunch of other people.
