Oh and by the way, if you go with the Terry Burget set up: Jb4 + WW meth kit + DCI - those 3 parts sell in a package for around $800. So the results could have been the about the same with a stock 335 + $800 in total mods.
oh no , the route i'm considering is the VT1-535 ,that's why I was disapointed to ear that ,lol , sorry if it was'nt to clear , I'm french so sometimes I probably don't write things to clearly !

It's really impressive that you make so much power with so little mods !!

There is a HUGE difference in the 535kit from a 6mt to DCT. It's comparable to a 600 6mt.

I'm really curious as to what a vishnu single turbo 135i would be like...and how difficult it would be to drive. I of course would add lsd/coilovers/brakes/wheels. If you're thinking of hot rodding an n54, thats where the bang for your buck is, IMO. I of course don't know if you're someone who thinks the 1 series looks like a "girls car."

Shiv took me for a spin in his car. The transition into boost is literally dizzying. Can only imagine what it would feel like in a lightened 135. Shiv did maybe 30 pulls for me and the car was tail happy, even at triple digits. He's a good driver thank goodness as he scared the crap out of me a few times.

Still considering the M3 plus intercooled VT2/3. I can't get over how beautiful the M3 is. Just having trouble with the price. Unfortunately I can't go with the 335is with DCT as it just won't hold up to the torque produced by the upgraded turbo. I'm now hearing that the VT3 on an M3 DCT is problematic...

...so, my debate now is keeping my car and going with the single turbo or maybe RB/ASR upgraded twins, or lease/buy the e92 M3 DCT and add the intercooled VT2.

DCT + 650hp + low torque + 8400rpm = RWDs best set-up !!

M3 all the way !!

I'm test driving another M3 on Sunday. When I do, I will be imagining 200 extra hp is there as to not get dissappointed
